The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

For those who are unaware, this is from Thomas Jefferson, and it’s something I think about a lot considering America today. Particularly after reading stories like this. Read it people. *sigh* I do think this country is going downhill like crazy, and this is one of those days where I wonder whether Germany, the UK, or some other country needs a computer programmer, because I’m ashamed of what my country has done in the world.

Don’t get me wrong – I love the USA, I’m just sickened by what’s been going on in this country, and what we’ve done in the rest of the world. That’s why I think EVERYONE had better vote, and vote often. I know I will be.

    wait a sec.  terrorists take over airplanes, crash into buildings, kill lots of people, and change our world…but you think it’s unfair this woman got detained?

    i’m not denying some of the officials weren’t nice, but frankly, i’d rather have them be overly careful than too lax.  She did fail to mark that she was a representative of the media and she HAD lived all over.  i’m not saying that automatically makes her a member of al-Quaida, but i’d rather have the authorities working their asses off to make SURE of that before just letting anyone and everyone into the country.

    yes, they could be nicer, but come on – she wouldn’t get NEARLY as nice of treatment in parts of the middle east, asia, and africa.

    you can always move to the UK…just be prepared to wait six months next time you need surgery on your shoulder.  public health care for all is a great concept, but it involves a lot of wait time.  a lot.
