    To those who claim we can not house dangerous people on American soil I ask this:
    In NYC we have Riker's island, and no one in my memory has ever broken out of there.

    America needs to grow the fuck up fast, I am sick of the fear about stuff that makes us queasy (war/sex)

    Time for America, as a nation, to grow a set (testicles or ovaries, your call)

      I live in the midwest. Little rural town. People might be fearful they're going to lose their jobs. Fearful their wife might get breast cancer. Fearful the Cardinals will lose to the Cubs. Fearful of terrorist, I am not even sure it make a list of 100 things they are scared of.

        here.

        Can the middle of the country take off the cowboy hat for 5 seconds, check their brain's inside haven't overheated, and let the people who actually face that threat say what we should do.

        I am stunned that NY State votes against Bush twice decisively and for Obama once decisively, yet gets chump change in terror prevention/assistance funding and has to listen to frog balls Tennessee tell us how to fight the war on terror and handle the terrorists?

        WTF!
