It is so discouraging...
That, at the drop of a pin, the American people can be totally distracted by whatever story the M$M decides is so urgently important. It is discouraging to see the manipulation day after day after day. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on you. Fool me a hundred times. Shame on you. We have no learning curve when it comes to fear and terrorism. We cannot accept that some people would be so Machivellian as to use this fear as a political weapon. We would not do it so we don't think anyone else would do it either. But, desperate politicians do desperate deeds. We should always maintain a skepticism with this bunch. They have not proven they can be trusted on anything - not even when they say we are under a severe threat.

3. This one pinned my bullshit meter, too
They've ALWAYS checked liquids. They've sniffed shampoos and perfumes and in one case I know of, insisted a new mom drink her own breast milk.

This is NOT NEW. It's just being trotted out to remind people who the big daddy in Washington who's supposed to save them from the bogeyman is.

I just think a lot of people are burning out on fear.

5. It is amazing how easy...
it is to dis-courage M$Americans. M$M gives M$Americans what they want.

6. And desperate they are BIGTIME
There is some stuff about to come out that will incriminate them and they will stop at nothing! Even those of us that know this don't seem to see how far they go.

The only way they can slow us down is to shutdown our internet... they are trying, you know they are trying. Saty the course.
