from [url]http://www.keepandbeararms.com/information/XcIBViewItem.asp?ID=3204[/url] Congratulations, Mister bin Laden, You Have Won The War! by Michael Z. Williamson daggers@iquest.net March 3, 2002 I have to hand it to you, Osama, you are a genius. I expected you to follow the initial attack with others, and thus shut down the entire airline industry. I expected attacks at the Macy's Parade and the Superbowl. I figured you'd at least have a few suicide bombers on the streets. You did none of that. You didn't need to. Let's face it: America could not survive without air travel, so we would have found your moles before letting further flights take off. And why attack public events when we are spending billions of dollars to hire dropouts as security "experts"? Our own governments, at every level, have done your work for you. Illiterates are harassing 80 year old South Dakotan Medal of Honor recipients as "potential terrorists." Grandmothers can't carry knitting needles, lest they stab a flight attendant. Entire airports are shut down because someone "Ran off" from a security checkpoint. We have soldiers patrolling our streets, our public events and our airports, almost like Ghana or the Congo. "Security officers" who are either sadistic perverts or morons are probing with rubber gloves teenage girls whose belly button rings set off the metal detector. Our laws, our civil liberties, our very open way of life no longer exists. We can't sell pocket knives in malls. "Nine Eleven!" is the cry. "Stupidity" is our watchword. "Paranoia" our mindset. Weigand Combat Handguns, who manufactures custom pistols for National Match shooters and FBI agents can't buy a Dell computer because the word "combat" triggers a Pavlovian urination reflex among sheeple. It's almost as if they expect you to advertise publicly. The panty-wetting freaks at the "Violence Policy Center" claim you hang out at gun shows looking for retail deals, rather than simply buy the stuff wholesale by the shipload in Pakistan. I'd expect these types of stories in the National Enquirer, but we are now expected to take them seriously. An alleged "Airport Security Expert" didn't like the handcuff key on my keyring. He claimed I could "Jab someone with it." I have to confess: I lost my temper. I could just as easily jab someone with any key. This alleged expert was standing close enough to me that I could have used my martial arts training to reach over his beer gut and rip his throat out before he could whine for backup. When I sarcastically asked if he wanted me to wear cuffs against that training, he threatened to have me jailed for "threatening" the aircrew. I wasn't even flying-I was meeting someone.

You've created a situation where idiot legislators (pardon the redundancy) have convinced the idiot public (and again) that we are actually safer with government-hired morons (I repeat myself) running security. You're a genius, Sir! I have to wonder: how loud will you laugh when the next terrorist inserts explosive into the obvious cavity (Alimentary, my Dear Watson) and the government creates a mandate that EVERYONE be probed before flying? Any suggestion of a fair trial, any hint of fairness, any hint that we should treat people as people rather than as potential terrorists is taken with moral outrage, the speaker accused of being a "traitor." I'm sure you'll chortle when I make the news next week. But I'll have good reason. The next person who attempts to justify stupidity with a mantra of "Nine Eleven! Nine Eleven!" I shall punch in the snoot. Then I shall kick them in the kidneys. Then I shall stomp them into a slimy spot on the sidewalk with my steel-toed combat boots. Those types of "military-style assault boots" will likely by banned thereby, but I no longer care. You know what? I no longer care about "Nine Eleven." I care about a tragedy that killed thousands of people, that justifies our strongest retribution, but I don't care at all about a silly catchphrase. I'm done. Finito. Your greatest allies are the dunderheads I meet on the street everyday, and I shall now treat them accordingly. I have to wonder if you appreciate the subtlety of your achievement, Osama. Laws and constitutions are null and void. Under the Indiana Constitution, I may carry a firearm. Under Indiana law, no local jurisdiction may pass any firearm legislation. Yet the local City-County building hired incompetent nitwits to tell me that I couldn't carry my 1" keychain tool into the building. Firearm? You jest! Licensed military officer? So what? And down in the evidence room, they handed me a .45 caliber pistol, 2 magazines and 14 rounds of ammo in an untaped cardboard box and let me walk out unescorted. Congratulations, Osama. You've won.

What a surprise, liberty86. You don't seem nearly as upset about this guy threatening to use violence on innoncent Americans without a trial as you did about us blowing off steam talking about what we'd like to do to al-Qaida members. There must be a logical explanation for this fact, but I'm damned if I can figure it out.

Another example of why I like this board so much. Is is good at least someone is speaking up at the collective stupidity that has become our nation. Is anyone listening? I doubt it.[IMG]http://www.grillsportverein.de/smilies/contrib/aahmed/sad.gif[/IMG]

We had these same problems long before Sept 11. Bin Laden's group was simply able to take advantage of what was already present. You simply cannot fire the grossly incompetent any longer simply because they are grossly incompetent. What do you bet that the security employee who fell asleep at his post, and was noticed by the National Guardsman asleep, and thereby necessitating the re-checking of bags, etc., for hundreds of already boarded passengers, will lose his job? Not going to happen! And if it did, they would never get out of court with the man. The problems which we have with our country are 'made in the USA', and are seldomly exposed in such a clearcut manner as they were on Sept. 11. Flawed airline security procedures, flawed and lax enforcement of immigration and visa laws and regulations, flawed administrations (such as Clinton's) that did not effectively respond to the murders of American civilian and US embassy workers abroad, and a whole host of other reasons. We hear stories about how illegal aliens were working with 'bought' security badges at Logan Airport in Boston, you know, where two of the Sept 11 planes took off from. Well it was six months between that black day and the day that the authorities 'discovered' that it had folks working at the airport that were 'unknowns'! And we hear more and more stories how these companies are going to 'crack down' on such matters! Lord, if they didn't do it on [b]Sept 12th[/b], the 'day after', what makes us think they're going to do it on March 5th, or 6th, or at [u]anytime[/u] in the future? They'd rather shake down a US Congressman, a little old lady, a elderly gentleman with a CMOH, and so forth, than go though an EEOC hearing on firing someone who should have been fired long before Sept 11. Are our borders more secure than they were on Sept 11th? Is the INS rounding up the 1,000,000 folks who are here on expired visas? Are companies who employ illegal aliens being threatened with fines? Are various states giving out drivers licenses to illegal aliens? Is there talk of 'amnesty' in the air? Yes, indeed, Mr. Bin Laden is the enemy and will continue to be the enemy until such time as he is sent to meet his maker. He was, however, assisted in his depredations by a country that took the wrong path years ago! Eric The(GetUSBackOnTheStraightAndNarrow!)Hun[>]:)]
