Thomas Crown and dancer, what "liberties" do we "need to take back"?
Fill me in. What "liberities" have any of you actually had taken away that have affected you freedom or way of life in America?
Your talking about LITTLE things like stepped up bag searches on mass transit (and only in certain locations) that none of you will probably even go through and if you do, so what?
Are we suppossed to do nothing at all and just send the message to terrorist's that they can walk onto the subway with bags full of bombs becuase no authorities are ever go to make an effort to search suspisious looking people or bags. They are not out there searching every citizen and if they were, so what?

In most cases the original owner gets SCREWED so that the corporation can clean up.
I should know I am going through it right now in Colorado Springs for the corporation owned toll road. I just purchased my 2.5 acre/ 3 bd/ 2 bath place in DEC 04 as a retirement property for ~$150K and immediately invested about $20K more- this week i got papers telling me my "just compensation was going to be around $800 an acre for a grand total of only $2000 to include the house".
