It wasn't "lazy government employees" who did not protect us from 9/11, it was the Bush Crime Syndicate, who was warned of it at least a month prior to it occurring, and then doing NOTHING. Personally, I believe that they let it happen, so that they could start this stuff, and turn this country into a Police State!
The whole thing should be disbanded. If you look at the money, you will find that the full body scanners that are used by airports comes from a company that was started by the former head of DHS, Michael Chertoff.
This tells me that the DHS was only formed to rip off the public, and put the money into the pockets of corporate cronies. It also tells me that they want the public to be more fearful of things, so that they can further monitor their whereabouts, in an attempt to further control them. Get rid of them, and replace them with something more constructive.
Ben Franklin said, "He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither." We are sacrificing freedom for security here in the US, so therefore we deserve neither!
That the Police don't have to obey the law, because they ARE the law.
Which explains his stance on guilt or innocence. Wait until there is proper law enforcement, he'll be the guilty one. Every cop is guilty of breaking some law. I know from experience.
I NEVER EVER 'liked' Rmoney's page, and I keep getting ads for his, and all kind of right wing fascist garbage. I think that their ad machine cannot differentiate between left and right politics, because EVERYTHING, and I do mean
E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G I post is leaning left. Some of it is so far left, it scares some of my "progressive" friends.
So don't pee on my head and tell me it's raining. I have even attempted to block Bishop Willard's ads, and they still keep coming up. I have used every reason that they have. Do not tell me that it's my fat fingers either.
And wtf is zero-cool-ing?
Why is it that these "small government" RapeubliCONs want to create bigger government to take away our free speech?
And why do they say that government is the problem, then when elected, go and prove it with their stupid ideas??
Inquiring minds want to know.
US elections are no longer in the hands of the citizenry, since the Bush Administration pushed through the HAVA (Hinder Americans from Voting Act). Now they are in the hands of software vendors, and the corporations that push these hackable electronic machines.
Hmm, if he's banned from owning a recording device, how can he sign in to his parole officer, unless he can use a pencil.
So let me get this straight, he can't own a pencil and paper, VCR, PC, camera, tape recorder, or brain. Now that should be appealed under the 8th amendment!

Well at least everything from the days of WWII, when his grandfather, Prescott Bush was convicted of selling to the Nazis up until the present day, with this war for oil that Bush Sr. started any way. I tend to blame Reagan for a lot myself. After all, it was Reagan who deregulated most of the trade here in the US, busted the Air Traffic Controllers' union, traded arms to Central American to raise money for the release of hostages in Iran, and refused to fund AIDS research, to mention a few things.
Yeah, it is mostly the Republicans' fault for most of what is wrong with this country today.
