thus leading us into a police state duh!!!
I've spent a majority of the time going through security checkpoints. At every attraction our bags are checked, we go through body scanners, we take off our shoes, our coats. You know the drill. Today alone I've been through six scanners. There are policemen everywhere.
Talk by Naomi Wolf author of "The End of America: Letter of Warning To A Young Patriot" given October 11, 2007 at Kane Hall on the University of Washington campus.
Welcome to Amerika! Exactly when did she become a police state?
"We don't need any grounds. We're the United States" Watch this experience, at the border, by two Canadian citizens coming to the US to go shopping. While millions pour across the Mexican border ILLEGALLY, Canadians must beware of attempting to LEGALLY go shopping in the US.
Should tourists go to jail for not bowing to arrogant border guards? Why would anyone want to come to spend money in the United States? Oh well, the economy is so good that maybe Niagara Falls is too prosperous to need the money.
Should we you feel safer now that we know how well we are being protected from Canadian terrorists who travel with their wives? But who will protect us from our protectors? People who are not citizens also have the "unalienable" rights to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Arrest means to stop or detain. If you are not free to go, then you are under arrest. The act of the taking of car keys accomplishes detention. Exactly what had this Canadian couple done BEFORE the storm trooper made a DE FACTO ARREST, by demanding their keys?
Of course, any innocent person will be upset, when they are unlawfully arrested. An emotional response is predictable, and it is inconceivable that the storm troopers would not be aware of this. That emotional response was then used to justify the arrest.
