Another Bomber: More Spin, More Control

Over this past extended Christmas weekend, something happened which most people have seemed to ignore.

Oh, its not the attempted bombing of a Northwest Airliner by another crazed Muslim. That got plenty of coverage.

The fact that the flight originated outside the USA also got plenty of coverage. It had to. They had to blame some other country for failed security protocols.

The fact that the TSA, airlines, and other governmental agencies immediately stepped in and instituted new controls and tighter security also received a good amount of coverage. But that isn't what is important either.

Yes, tighter controls on the American flying public. Of course, those controls don't affect the flying public outside the country.

Realize the fact that government agencies, rules and regulations, restrictions on your liberties and freedoms, didn't do a damn thing to stop the attempted bombing. If these were an effective measure to eliminate the threat of terrorism, it never would have happened.

That's what is important for you to note.

But of course, the media won't point that out to you.

Benjamin Franklin said it best, “Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”

You've given up your freedom for nothing. You've allowed yourselves to be strip searched, poked and prodded, and driven like cattle by people who would otherwise be unemployable. The TSA is a jobs program for the barely literate. Half the time I've had to deal with them, I've had problems with them being conversant in English. Many of them looked like they're the ones who should have been taken aside for secondary screening.

Good job, America. You surrendered yourself to being treated like Jews being loaded onto cattle cars every time you fly, and for what?

You still have to fight to preserve your own safety. You still have to subdue your own attackers. Only now you have to do it without the benefit of having your trusty nail clippers, because they're too dangerous for you to have on board an aircraft.

Where are all the vaunted and hallowed rules, and regulations that were supposed to keep you safe? Didn't that criminal read them? Why didn't he pay heed to them? They are the law after all.

Where are the security forces rushing in to save your life?

Oh they're around.

They're somewhere safe and sound, looking for a way to increase their budget for next year. They won't take on an armed attacker one on one like true heroes. No, they have to work as a gang and bum rush the guy or shoot him from a distance. They behave like a criminal gang. No honor. No loyalty. No responsibility.

You're on your own in this world. Every time you let those bastards in Washington DC pass another law, you place yourself even further outside the safety of a cohesive community. Those political whores divide along every possible line they can draw between a once free people. They are killing this country with a billion paper cuts from that blizzard of meaningless and useless legislation they pass every year.

Most of which they seem to exempt themselves from.

You better get used to that fact because things are going to get a whole lot worse. You will need to realize that the only person who can safeguard you and your own.....is you.

I think that about says it all...! Interesting how the laws only apply to us...and the others can ignore them with impunity! Sorta like immigration, huh?
