Help the Terrorists...Take Our Freedoms

New York has now instituted a public policy of random bag checks at the subways. They say the bag checks are random, based on a number system. Now, we all know this is just a way of making all the brown people feel better about getting their bags checked, just to make it seem like a random occurrence that everyone of Arab or South Asian background is stopped and searched while every tenth white guy is stopped. I guess it's fair enough seeing that Arab Muslim extremists are doing the bombing and killing. The fact that they are searching Arabs is not the problem, the fact that they are searching AMERICANS IS. Supposedly these checks are random and optional but we'll see what happens when a "brown person" refuses the search, will they be tazered into submission, then sent to the secret FISA court and locked away without representation??? What's going to happen when someone refuses the search on the grounds that they will not submit to the terrorists and will live by the American credo of the right to privacy and being free of searches of their person without probable cause?

We are told the terroists attack us because they "hate our freedoms." Then by what logic is it, that we win by giving up our freedoms out of fear of being attacked. If the terrorists terrorize us into giving up our freedoms then they win. As we steadily slip farther and farther into a self induced police state out a fear that may or may not be real we destroy our credibility as a "freedom loving people."

If the terrorists hate us because of our freedoms then I propose that anyone who supports or advocates giving up said freedoms, by their own logic, is responsible for the demise of our country is aiding and abetting the terrorists' cause. Why are these people not questioned and arrested as enemies of freedom?

That includes anyone who supports the PATRIOT ACT, random bag searches, or any tactic that goes against the idea of personal freedom and liberty. These people are the greater enemies of freedom, and they arent brown, and they arent abroad, and they arent Muslim, they are here in our country, and members of our govenment, the people who are members of the New American Despotic Fascism, bringing in the American Police State, and ringing out our freedoms, little by little, hoping we won't notice until they control or monitor every piece of everyones' lives.

Benjamin Franklin said it best:
"Those who would give up essential liberty for a little safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
Let me tell ya, I happen to agree. We should make no concessions of liberty for safety, every concession we make is a point for the enemies of freedom, terrorists or otherwise, and demeans our credibility on the topic of liberty and freedom.

Britain Says Man Police Killed Had NO TIES to Bombings:

His only crime was that he was slightly brown, a Brazillian electrician on his way to work. Yes, go forward and kill all the brown people. Fuck the brown, browner, and black people, they are all terrorists. Jesus Christ, where is the fucking outrage. The article from the NY Times is sort of, "Oh well, he shouldnt have been brown...wrong place, wrong time."
When the man got shot it was all the media could talk about, now that the story turns into an actual controversy of out-of-control trigger happy police officers gunning down innocent people in an ever increasing STAZI POLICE STATE the media is AWOL. Why? I'm sure its for the same reason I had to hear about a white girl missing on VACATION on a TROPICAL ISLAND for 3 weeks straight, while hundreds of black women go missing every year without a mention from the media, he was brown so it doesn't matter. If it was a white guy that was innocently gunned down we would hear about it for days, or even weeks.

When in the course of human events...

Could you imagine the courage these men had??? The ideas...much less the courage to tell the largest empire in the world because of their disrespect for these ideas they are no longer worthy to rule you...just unfathomable courage, genius, and insanity.

The Declaration of Independence of the Thirteen Colonies
Presented by the Indiana University School of Law—Bloomington

The Declaration of Independence of the Thirteen Colonies
In CONGRESS, July 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. —Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain [George III] is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

Damned Media

It's all the media's fault that we cant get anyone to go sign up to fight a war that isnt ours to fight. If they wouldnt do such a half assed job of showing what war was like maybe we could just keep people completely in the dark so they would have no idea what they were getting into by joining the Armed Forces. I dont know who it was in the Senate or Congress that made that comment, but I think he's damn lucky that he still has enough brain function to continue breathing. War is negative dumbass. War is the greatest failure of leadership and diplomacy. Little kids, men, women, and babies dying in a fight they didnt pick or want. What do you want the media to show. Maybe they should just show the footage of us finding the WMD's, or maybe they should show the footage of Saddam meeting with OBL to plan 9/11, or maybe they should show us being greeted as "liberators" with "flowers and sweets," or maybe they should show the President, VP, and SOD planning for the post invasion. Oh wait none of that happened did it. So, all that's left to show is the end result of the botched planning based on false pretenses and fairy tales believed only by the few who ran this show.

I dont think the media shows enough. Like the pictures I've seen where children have been decapitated by bullets, or the days rotted corpses of men and teenagers, or American soldiers laying in pools of their own blood while their buddies fight a battle around them. I think the media should show more of these images, not as a deterrent to service, but as a deterrent to those populists who think war is glorious and armchair quarterback and cheerlead for war at the drop of a hat, especially while never having FOUGHT in one. I think the media has covered the nitty gritty just enough to dissuade people from going to fight.
