    Default & the Fix Will Be?

    A geezer's big Saturday night may consist of going to the local ready to bake pizza place to pick up a pie . Anyway this was our Saturday night main course!

    On my way home I pass a couple of young men who are part of a group that rents a local house & am amazed at the similarity in appearance to the marathon bombers. Need a cut, & a shave & are hanging out on the street BS'ing. I'm sure the cops have visited them a time or two as the neighbors are p#**ed with the way they keep the place up & the number of beatup cars parked there.

    Should these folks be monitored - they just don't appear right, other than they look like any pair of normal young guys who are being guys? So I ask myself - what is the criteria, if any, that could be used to ID someone in advance that would mean they would need more scrutiny? Or should the uncle who thought they deserved what they got be held accountable for not making his concerns known to LE officials? or should the aunt who thought them to be angels be on the hot seat? Or is it OK if more of our liberties go down the drain in another unworkable supposed solution by our congresscritters?

    Does anyone find it coincidental that the one that's still alive was sworn in as a citizen on SEPT 11, 2012? & was considered pretty normal by his college classmates?

    Lets see Marv, you say
    "THEY LOOK LIKE ANY PAIR OF NORMAL YOUNG GUYS WHO ARE BEING GUYS"

    you also say; "They just don't appear right"

    Then you ask what criteria, if any, could we use to ID someone that needs more scrutiny?

    You then close by asking; "is it OK if more of "OUR" liberties go down the drain" by legislative action


    Im guessing the proposed solution to your dilemna would be an edict requiring the removal of ALL LIBERTIES of anyone who doesn't "appear right" to Marv; even if "THEY LOOK LIKE ANY PAIR OF NORMAL YOUNG GUYS WHO ARE BEING GUYS"


    We may want to restore the liberties of "ANY PAIR OF NORMAL YOUNG GUYS WHO ARE BEING GUYS" if they can play football and like to take sexual liberties with passed out young ladies. This may make our edict more pallatable and less draconian looking to the true thinkers amongst us

    There are EVIL people in the world.
    Freedom is NOT free!

    Free men must remain vigilant!

    I don't need a bunch of incompetent fools creating more bureaucracy to inhibit my freedoms under the guise of protecting them.

    If anything, tighten up the guidelines on who we let in here in the first place, other than that some responsibilities are on my (our) shoulders.
    (I know, a contradiction except what I proposed is on people NOT here, not citizens)

    2 kids wreaked havoc on Boston, imagine what a thousand determined terrorists could do?

    Stand ready as citizens...........I believe a fight is coming.
    If you are not willing to fight for your freedoms, they WILL be taken from you!

    JMO....nothing more.

    Acts of terrorism on American soil are so rare as to be statistically non-existent, so taking additional action that limits the general public's civil liberties seems as asinine as more gun laws to prevent "mass shootings". Political correctness prevents us from taking the steps that would be the most effective.
    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.

    Partially right... Political correctness actually causes the idiots in charge to take steps that put us in more danger. Example: wasting billions of dollars patting down grandmas and kids at airports when they should be doing profiling... All kinds of profiling, geographic, ethnic, behavioral, whatever. If someone is offended, oh well. I'm offended when little kids get blown up minding their own business.

    Once again you are proving why the public holds a common belief that there are too many legal folks among us, but not enough engineers. Please note, I did not say minds as your posts on this forum indicate that too much thought may make your head hurt .

    One thing is almost a certainty, Marvin...whatever IT takes, won't happen under this regime. The Muslim-in-Chief disguised as the POTUS will see to it America's hands are tied when it comes to any form of retribution against any muslim whacko...in his eyes they walk on sacred ground and can never be touched.

    Be prepared to puke, should this crazy end up in the courts, and have a cadre of "willing to support anybody" type ambulance chasers lined up to get their names in all the newscasts. The defense they come up with will defy all common sense, and everyone against these traitorous punks, will be seen, (as no less a believer than the famous SARGE)... as totally racist.
