The authorities are very good at curtailing our rights with the goal of ensuring that a terrorist incident isn't repeated verbatim. Other than that, they have no effect in stopping terrorism and never will. Terrorists will never win over and subjugate western society and turn us into fascists. We can only do that to ourselves.

Doesn't matter where Zoellle is from. Are you telling us that Dems = Liberals? And since you are making a geographical argument do you know for a fact that Dems=Liberals in the house of reps in NJ?

I was just stirring the crapper a bit. Most politicians lay awake at night to think up this crap. They are always protecting us from ourselves. How lucky we are to have them!

Insulting half the people on the planet is always fun. May not be productive, but it's always a gas.

Sorry, as a certified moron, I reserve the right to injure myself in any fashion I choose. I figger when I get REALLY stupid, I'll take up smoking cigs. Nothing beats dying slowly and making someone rich all at the same time.

Default Scotland Yard kicks butt.

Have to agree with pudlepirate on this one. Seems to me that Scotland Yard is kicking ass compared to the first WTC bombing investigation here in the states. As Ralph Nadar said in the U.S. we treat terrorism as a military thing and go bomb something with a cruise missle. The Brits will do it with surgical percision and sublety. Because the Brits don't have a cruise missle to spare they will have to do it the old fashioned way close up and with a gun.. I think those cameras have really helped the British in their investigations. We only have one camera shot I think of a terrorist in the second WTC attacks, at Boston Logan's Airport..

This whole thing started due to (mostly) cars drag racing on the streets. There have been several deaths to non-participants - nobody cares about the racers, they are expendable. Reminds me of the late forties & early fifties when the CHP had an anti street racing task force. This was the main impetus that essentialy created drag strips to get people off the streets. I ran mostly at Fontana, which was operated by Fontana and/or Pomona police dept - I think they eventually moved to and created the Pomona drag strip. What happened to CHP Officer Chuck Pollard when we need him again? Chuck handled Southern California, and was a geat guy.
