BlueJay BS: Got Rights? Not For Long! (28) RE: BS: Got Rights? Not For Long! 10 Feb 03

So Doug- All the time Bush and Ashcroft have been "bending" my rights, they have done virtually nothing to increase our national security. Tom Ridge, et al have not come up with much to protect American citizens other than a silly color scheme. After 9-11, Bush promised to help the states with homeland security. But the money has not been forthcoming, except to bail out the airlines. And the states and cities are exactly where the fictional added security is needed the most. We are absolutely no more secure now than before 9-11. In fact, we are in a much more dangerous condition, and more vulnerable to attack because of Bush's posturing. Right or wrong, if we invade Iraq, the Muslim extremists will become even more determined to attack our nation. The worst is yet to come, IMO. And now with the North Korea problem, it's even worse. How are we going to pay for all of this, Doug? Bush's new budget doesn't include a penny for fighting Iraq or a new war on the Korean peninsula. The Federal government can't afford to pay for the much needed security of airports and harbors. So how is knowing my library habits going to be any more than an infringement on my right to privacy, and another big Federal cash drain? Are the major benefactors of Bush's largesse stepping up to the plate? If so, I haven't seen it. Thanks, BlueJay
