i wish someone could tell me why it is that we need homeland security. america is no 'safer' than we were before 9/11/01. this government has been more focused on taking away the bill of rights from american citizens and taking over foreign countries than actually doing anything with homeland security- other than taking the money from the agency. i am focusing on airplane safety because that has been the most visible entity 'effected' by the useless agency. in case you hadn't heard, racial profiling, bigotry, prejudice and unwarranted hysteria is par for the coarse these days on our commercial airlines. you can find them alive and well among the hassle and useless delays that has become commonplace at all of the nation's airports. numerous news articles have focused on how easy it is to get by airport security that i am not going to bother looking them up- just google away. anyhoo- the point of this narrative is to say- this government is stockpiling even more data about you for no reason. and--- you have no access to it and you have no recourse against it. see for yourself.

and speaking of racial profiling, bigotry, prejudice, etc. from the republican brain trust:
michael savage- ban outright muslim immigration
michael savage- congressman swearing on quran
