you make a somewhat valid point....HOWEVER...
there are still people who believe that what is in the official 9/11 report is the god's honest truth, they believe osama planned it, and was the
"mastermind" of the whole affair....they still think iraq had something to do with it.....these are the people who are still living in fear to this
day, of terrorists under every rock.....these are the people who are speaking for us, and empowering the federal government to violate our rights
under the law...
it is a fact that our southern border is very porous, it's a fact that thousands of people slip across it every day, it's a fact that there are groups
of people who are not terribly smart, but are VERY determined, and VERY dedicated to their beliefs, who want to kill americans, because they see ALL
of us as the enemy, whether it be for religious reasons, or just because they hate what our jackass federal government has done to their part of the
world.... and it's entirely possible that some of these radical militant jihadists could just as easily slip in here, and maybe do something..
i mean, you've got the sign in ferguson, saying "ISIS HERE", you've got the thing with the person taking a picture of the white house, while
displaying an image of the islamic state's flag.......i mean, if these people aren't WITH isis, they're most likely supporters of it....and that's a
whole other issue..
yes, there are REAL threats....but they're not the ginned up "terror plots" that the FBI keeps bragging about stopping, most of which weren't even
real to begin with...they're not the color alerts for non-specific nonsense from DHS, and they're not the "OMG, TERRORISTS EFERYWHUR" scaremongering
by the MSM....
but some nutbag zealots slipping over the US/Mexico border?.....i can see that happening, and it doesn't make me feel very safe..
not saying i live in fear of terrorists, because honestly, i've got a better chance of getting hit by a car, catching a cold, being struck by
lighting, or falling down a flight of stairs, than i do of getting killed by a terrorist.....but i'm saying it's pretty ignorant, to just dismiss even
the POSSIBILITY out of hand, without some serious thought first. i'm not gonna stop living my life, or "give up" any of my rights...but i'm also not
gonna act like it's not a thing that's possible either...
