  •  In 2004 Wisconsin had 31,000 people in prison (0+ / 0-)

    California over 160,000. http://www-958.ibm.com/...

    There's another 48 states and in 2004 it totaled over 2 million. How many are you talking about in a position to do us harm? 10,000? 20,000? More people died in car accidents and from smoking this week than have been killed by terrorists since 2001.

    So
    2,000,000 prisoners
    20,000 possible lunatics actually able to mount a threat

    I think the Rule of Law can handle it.

    But I thought military took an oath to defend the Constitution.

    Until we break the corporate virtual monopoly on what we hear and see, we keep losing, don't matter what we do.
