Is not paranoia I care less for the president itself but I am very much worry for the people that will be around DC for the celebration.
The paranoia is not because I think terrorists will do something to the people, but what our government militia will to them.
The only one spreading paranoia is the Government itself, with guidelines of how to behave and what not to do because the security around the man that was elected by the citizens of this country (that's what they tell us) wants or not wants.

The anti-abortion Christian Defense Coalition, which is also planning a demonstration, has threatened to sue the government because the Secret Service recently added crosses to its list of objects that are banned from the parade route.
Is it legal to ban crosses? Isn't that a violation of freedom of religion? And *why*? Why ban crosses?
Tom Mazur, spokesman for the Secret Service, told WorldNetDaily the prohibition is simply a security matter that has nothing to do with the religious nature of the cross.
"The reference to the cross is strictly in regard to structure, certainly not the symbol," he said. "There is no prohibition based on content, only structure or materials that could be used in a potentially harmful or threatening manner."
Mazur said crosses would be allowed at the parade site if they conform to the same material and size restrictions applied to signs and placards. For example, a cross made of cardboard could be brought, he affirmed.
Remember not to the left and not eye contact either and by not means do not do any sudden movements Mr. Bush does not like that at all.

We have become virtual prisoners in our own country. One second you're told to duck and cover, and the next you don't know how to wipe your rear. Just wait. It will not be soon until Bush enacts Martial Law and then talk about restrictions...! I think he and his old Haliburtan friends and we can't leave Cheney out will enact phase I. I also see several if not all of our civil rights going up in smoke in the name of Homeland Security. I agree with MARGE that our country is just one heartbeat away from 'ole Cheney and Co. moving in. And if that ever happens, bend over and you know what to do.
