My attitude to this sort of BS is this. The only people who prefer errosion of liberty , to getting blown up are the exact people that deserve to be
blown up. Im British , but we are suffering errosion of freedom and liberty here too , and I hear fear based , pathetic, ill educated lackwits whining
and moaning about how its so terrible, because unless the police can own us all , and unless we are always watched the terrorists will get us!
Well guess what, neither pat downs or those scanners would have detected that fellow who tried to blow his underpants up on a plane! Those pat downs
and body scans didnt stop that gun runner from getting his product from the East Coast of the US to Manchester in England (incidentaly , if anyone
here is from the US, do me a favour and keep those particular scumbags at home please? Really dont need more gun crime in the North of England, or
anywhere really , cheers guys) so pretty much all these things do , is waste peoples time, invade peoples privacy, and freak people out.
None of the liberties that people have been prepared to sacrifice have actualy stopped any attacks. Better intelligence has , but thats it! All the
infrastructure is a sham and another heap of BS designed to keep people feeling all safe and secure, as if we are all freakin children.
We can be stopped and searched by the police here, at any time, with no probable cause, no reason what so ever. We can be spied on if we are seen in
the same bar as anyone who has ever had a crimminal conviciton, people have had anti terror spying methods used on them to ensure that they arent
sending thier kids to school in the wrong catchment for christs sake. Thats not a terror offence , thats doing right by your kids!
Its the apathy and patheticism of those who WANT more anti terror laws, and those who WANT less freedom, and more government control, who ought to be
blown up, and I hope some of them are reading this, because when those people do finaly die in an explosion on a bus, or in a plane,or on a train or
anywhere else, when they are watching as thier legs fly off one way, and they spin off another, I hope they remember this thread, that someone warned
them what they were in for.
In my nation Im hardly suprised at the total non reaction people have had to these scanners largely speaking, but in the states... I cannot
understand how the airports havent been mobbed by anti privacy invasion groups. I mean there was a guy who features on your currency out there, who
warned you all about this situation and what it means for your right to liberty ... seriously its a well known quote, and I would be doing you all a
diservice to remind you who it was , or what he said, but suffice to say the messege obviously isnt one that folks are paying much attention to these
