    I'm saying we don't compromise our core principles every time a little tragedy occurs.

    So yeah, some terrorists got through on 9/11 - that's the fault of the TSA and the FAA and the FBI and the DOD and whoever else is supposed to be watching that stuff.

    It's not your fault, and it's not my fault. Someone was asleep on the watch, that's all. How come we gotta go changing everything and spending trillions of dollars for this? Why? And wiretapping the whole damn universe - Jeez, this is Soviet Union stuff! Come on man, we don't do that stuff here, this is America! Erm.... isn't it?

    We invite people in, we have open borders, we employ 'em even if they're illegal, we educate 'em, I mean.... y'know.... so suddenly we think we actually have the technological capability and the money to monitor every individual on the face of planet? That's just ridiculous! That's like a wanna-be Big Brother, but it has no chance of ever succeeding. Zero! You think Mr. Putin and President Xi are going to play nice and go along with that? We have a foreign policy that's so screwed up we can't even keep up with all the shifting allegiances among the people we're trying to aid and arm, and they think they're going to track individuals halfway across the globe?

    You want to know how screwed up US foreign policy is right now? They're going after people in Liechtenstein for tax evasion! Liechtenstein has like.... one city. Okay, two. They have a grand total of a couple hundred thousand people... y'know.... I mean, we're pissing away trillions on this idiotic "war on terra" and we gotta go after some clown who moved to Liechtenstein.... I tell ya, this country's going to hell in a handbasket.

    Do you watch commercial media? If so, I strongly suggest you do not, for the corporate interests behind the Iraq invasion are pretty much common knowledge among independent media's viewers but censored by commercialized propaganda outlets. This information is also available in the documentary, A Crude Awakening, which I found very informative. Cheney's Halliburton stock soared after the U.S. invaded Iraq, and the Bush Administration wanted "terrorists" in Iraq to attack the U.S. army. Oil would be harder to find and more scarce if there was more violence. This is the same reason that oil prices were so high during the Arab Spring uprising.

    Have you ever read the political joke blog, Wonkette. It is hilarious. It has some very funny nicknames for politicians and public figures. Joe Lieberman the self-centered alien turd; Pat Robertson the zombie hate turd; Newt Gingrich the doughy marshmallow; Ol' Grandpa cranky pants Ron Paul. It's hilarious.

    I read Derick Jensen's book, The Culture of Make Believe, and he analyzes that whole idea of terrorism. Terrorists are basically people who kill people in order to inspire terror throughout societies. Then, by that definition, police and courts are terrorists. They enforce prohibitive laws in order to scare people into obeying them.

    Lol, you think 9/11/01 is a good reason to limit someone's rights. That terrorist attack came because Bush, Cheney and Ashcroft were sitting on their asses doing nothing while Bin Laden was out there plotting against the U.S. Bush and Cheney had been planning the Iraq invasion nine months before 9/11/01, as the British government memo stated.

    This also sounds like the Hobbesian Fear Factor, where you surrender your rights to a high power in exchange for protection.

    Here at PH... yes... but when it happens it's drowned out by polarized partisan bickering.
