Subject: RE: BS: Guns on planes
Dear, dear friends:
This whole nonsense is not about safty or terror, it is about control. This morning on the news, we were told that police are on the lookout for people with almanacs, as they could be used for targeting. Well, if that is true, now all the "evil doers" know to leave their almanacs at home when they go to be evil and bad. However, we now have Americans getting used to look at what books people are carring, begining with the most mundain things... Now, they are putting mettle detectors and snipers at Times Square for New Years. Ever been to Belfast in the seventies? Had to go through turn styles, mettle detectors and yes that really stopped the war (NOT!) Well, we now find, as BBC reports, that the war in the norther counties of Ireland was much more complex than Britan was admitting ... is it possible we few nuts are right, these wars are not about evil wogs out to get us, but about US trying to control the dwindling resorses of the world?
Oh my aching head.
PS My modest proposal (every anglo Irishman makes at least one a year) is to have one plane for luggage and clothes and one for people. Let's all fly in the nude. I think the world would be a happier place if we all got to know that undernieth it all, we are pretty much alike.
