If it means protecting my family from a guy that has already blown up a sporting event, and shot at cops, I'd be willing to invite the cops in and look around without ANY issue.

What about the guy who the cops made strip down naked and handcuffed in the middle of the street? If the cops tell you a terrorist is nearby and you must strip down in the middle of the street are you willing to do that also? What level of terrorism/crime are you willing to give these rights up for? New York City has been attacked several times in the last 20 years. If you vacation in New York are you willing to strip down anytime a cop asks? Just wondering at what point giving up your rights in the name of safety stops.

Some people will give up all rights for perceived safety.

It's very similar to giving up all happiness for 20 years just to get a check for the rest of your life.

Someone once said they that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Most Americans could not handle the freedom our founders intended nor do they want it. But then again, only about a third of Americans supported the revolution that lead to the creation of our nation - so even then not a majority wanted freedom.

I think Maslow's heirarchy would agree that most peoople would do that. Survival and safety are the most basic human needs.

Nope, because I'm not hiding anything. However, there could be a guy hiding around my house. I love al the keyboard heroes here. Most of the people that talk tough about rights and standing up to cops would fold.

I am not trying to talk tough. One time I was driving through town when I noticed a large amount of police. I immediatly turned left to avoid them which happened to be a dead end alley. As soon as I made that move I was swarmed by three cops cars. They drew their guns on my car and yelled put your hands out of the window so I did. They came up and handcuffed by hands together. Then they ordered me out of the car. The problem was that my car was in drive still and they handcuffed my hands together but I had my seatbelt on. The cops were about to drag me out of the car when I explained this. Finally things calmed down and they asked me what I was doing. I said I was just turning around. There was a robbery in the area and they thought I was the get away driver heading to pick up the robber. It was pretty crazy but there is honestly no way I could have stood up to the cops nor did I ever suggest I would. Above I was trying to make the point that cops get away with way too much in the name of safety. I have to agree with VFF that it sets bad precedent when cops are allowed to do things like raid people's houses and everyone just sits around cheering because it happened to someone else not us. USA! USA! USA!

I guess I was thinking a lot like JD. I can count the number of people I know both civilian and military who are completely satisfied by the job all the time.

I've been getting info about the fire fighters in through the FF network.

Which is available to those who are fellow firefighters.. not us general public. Which is why i feel ashamed of our press population that we know all these details about every shooter that crops up, but nothing on these brave souls whos lives perished in that blast.


How would you classify James Holmes and Adam Lanza?

Criminals..


Yeap, not only illegal and unconstitutional searches but bad precedent too.

Already been talking about them on another forum.

Hence my mentioning of "How could anyone in their right mind say that having ARMED police at your door, shouting at you can be considered 'requesting your permission to search the place.."


If it means protecting my family from a guy that has already blown up a sporting event, and shot at cops, I'd be willing to invite the cops in and look around without ANY issue.

And so would i if asked.. BUT the way it seems these cops went around it (via that linked news story) shows they were NOT AKSING.. they were ordering people out at gunpoint and searching period.. No authority. No warrant. No permission.


I would gladly let the cops in, but, I'd have a problem of being ordered out of my home.

So would i. Heck if i was in process of eating, showering, or having nookie i would also tell them to go away, come back!

Now of the things coming to light i would LOVE to know how the govt responds to..

1) If the 2 brothers came in via asylum claims cause of their parents, why were they NOT kicked out when thier parents went BACK to dagickstan?
2) One report said the father worked as an auto shop repairman.. well if that is the case, WHY then were they claiming welfare etc?

Seems like Washington can't get it's message straight concerning the bombers in Boston. The FBI says it checked the older bomber out at Russia's request and found nothing. Then we hear the Russians got disgusted with that and then went to the CIA with information about the bomber. Homeland Security says they knew about the bomber all along, but they never gave any information to the FBI. The FBI says it did not know the bomber went to Russia, but the HLS chief says they knew when he left for Russia {They were "pinged") and when he returned Today the Sec of State says the bomber went to Russia to team up with rebels there only to have the FBI and White House back off from that statement


Wasn't the creation of the Department of Homeland Security suppose to bring all these agencies (alphabet soup) together to prevent this type of chaos again?



What the hell is going on in DC? Is the president and his crew in self denial that radical Muslims want to kill us? They seem to be desperately trying to make the bombing in Boston an isolated incident and trying to cover up any connection with radical Muslims? Today we learn that another suspected bomber bought the fireworks at the same place, in New Hampshire, as the Boston bomber did.? It seems as if Obama wants his administration to pretend the radical Muslims are not trying to kill us. His administration is trying desperately to convince Americans that these radical Muslim bombing incidents are all done by isolated, independent, unhappy radical Muslim immigrants to America.

Is it going to take a football sized nuke in some city in America to convince Obama that muslims want to kill us off?

That has happened with every attack so far...It's Ft Hood all over.

Maher is generally quite hilarious. And the fact that he makes fundies so angry shows he's doing something right.

Now of course you'll ask does Beck make me angry? No, he doesn't. He's simply a businessman who exploits the stupidity and ignorance of the religious right for profit. What angers me is how so many of my countrymen go on his website and spew all kinds of hateful and paranoid garbage.

False. Government has existed for this purpose since Babylon. Has this always worked? Absolutely not - there's a failure story to go with every success story. But to claim that government intervention is something new or untested is just being silly.

And this is exactly why progress is slowed by conservatives, because you close your eyes and pretend progress is impossible. Amazingly, you'll even ignore all of human history and all of the great things we've accomplished by working together and insist that another step forward can't be done.

Of course we have problems. Every generation of Americans has had problems. We used to burn people. Christian extremists used to be allowed to hunt down and unconstitutionally persecute atheists and communists. Corporations used to call in air strikes on uncooperative coal miners. Corporations used to lock up young girls in factories without fire escapes, causing them to burn to death. Religious zealots used to be allowed to persecute people for having sex.

Most of the problems we face today aren't more severe, or even new. In my opinion, the biggest danger today is that conservatives have completely taken over the education system - and are simply ignoring so much of our history and so many victories that we've won in the past against evil.

Yes the original pledge of allegiance (before the christian taliban hijacked it) was written by a socialist. And since you claim you've done your own research, you also know that socialists were responsible for most of the social and economic progress made in the United States through out the first two thirds of the 20th century.

Exactly.. Look to all the countries which have gotten to be welfare states (socialist).. Most are tanking their economies right now.

Conservatives whine and cry about how the evil atheists and communists have taken over the academia... yet in my own schooling experience I have yet to see that.

As for liberalism, it goes without saying that more educated countries are more liberal. You know - like not beheading people for having gay sex, or beating women for reading a book.

Do either of you go to church regularly? Do either of you pay attention to the vast majority of rules in the bible? If the answer is "no" - that means you are religious, but you're not as religious as an average person in, say, Saudi Arabia.

Yes, America is the most religious developed country in the world - so it should come as no surprise we are one of the worst off developed countries. However, in comparison with the world in general, we are not the most religious country.

Yes, worst off of any developed country. In what way is that? It's amazing that we can be so "bad off" yet we still get so many immigrants from so many developed countries coming here. We must be a shithole. That's why Japanese, Europeans, etc, continue to come here, even with our poor healthcare, high unemployment rates, and with us being such a "religious state".

I find many of PYB's views eccentric (no surprise, him being a libertarian and me a leftist) - but I find it interesting that his opposition to police abuse and government over-reaching its authority alienated him from most the other "conservatives" on MTF.

The answer the people were spoon fed was they "hate us for our freedom". It doesn't seem that any serious study or thought has been done to stop this. Are we making the threat worse by the increased use of drones in Muslim countries? These are the questions our leaders need to be asking.

I agree with all you just said... HOWEVER - the threat is still a microscopic one. You are far more likely to be killed in a car wreck or an idiot neighbor who forgot to clear his weapon before cleaning it, than to be killed by a Jihadist.

In fact, I find it interesting that there was a huge media frenzy over two dudes who killed three people with pressure cooker bombs... meanwhile a fertilizer plant in Texas blows up and incinerates half the town - no big deal. Nothing to worry about, just another day in Capitalism. Nobody goes to jail.

At the moment no one has gone to jail.. IMO the owners and managers SHOULD definitely get a looking into, especially if the plant WAS operating out of specs.
But i do agree we have had one heck of a media frenzy on the Boston bombings, and know damn near everything about the 3 dead, but unless you are a fire fighter (and therefore have gotten the names of your fellow dead fire fighters) or live down there, we don't even know the names of any of the dead.. let alone anything about them.

That's a staple of all religions - they're repressed with ridiculous rules, then as soon as they are taken off the leash, they're unable to cope with the increased responsibility.
