Dancing in the Desert Blowing Up the Sunshine
"The one thing I’d like to point out is that the system worked."
The only reason this plane didn’t blow up to high heaven is because the “terrorist” was incompetent.
I wonder: What in the holy heck fire have we been spending our money on these past eight years? Tactics that mean nothing, that do nothing, that cannot possibly under any circumstances ensure our safety?
S.B. says our government is making this shit up as they go along, and he's right. First, it was no shoes. Then no water. Now, what? No going to the bathroom? No blankets? No movies? No iPods? No talking? Tinfoil hats? Spin around three times and dance a jig to keep the Boogeyman at bay? Or is the government going to conscript some "green" scientists into inventing teleportation in the next 2.5 seconds so we won't have to fly at all?
The one thing our government IS mandated to do is stand as a bulwark between us an all enemies foreign and domestic. And guess what? They suck at doing it.
And we want to trust these folks with our health care?
