    Remember to acknowledge the RapidScan machines AND patdowns as "gifts" of George W. Bush's Homeland Security Secretary, Chertoff who "sold" the machines from his client in India. He insisted we HAD to have the "technology from India" in all our airports. Just another boondoggle from the Goofy Old Party!!! When will they finally do the country a favor and just disappear???

    Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

    Keep your liberty, integrity and dignity.

    Those are words that our nation was founded on. They are not to be altered for current events. The principle is still the same.

    I'll give up my freedom when I give up my guns. When they pry them from my cold, dead hands. Until then, MY borders will remain secure. Ask the religious freaks who left stepping backward in a hurry. They shoulda respected a closed door.
