I'm sorry but I don't give a rat's furry ass if they tap my phones or whatthehelleverthefuck.

I don't like this gas shit one bit. I don't like it and this time it is different. And whoever wants to disagree with me fine - call me a traitor. Call me a damn republican if you want but I am scared.

And Patrick Henry and Benjamin Franklin did not live in the age of biotoxins.

Read this from a Navel officer I found on the net from James Holmes.

"Biological weapons? Less mass-destructive, but more insidious. Biological agents are living organisms that have a nasty habit of spreading from host to host. They're the gift that keeps on giving. Plus, symptoms take time to manifest. Pestilence may have spread before anyone's aware an attack has occurred. Think the Black Death in medieval Europe and you get the idea. Detecting an attack, determining that it is an attack, and figuring out how to respond defies the medical expertise of crews on the scene."

http://thediplomat.com/the-naval-diplomat/2013/08/31/chemical-weapons-are-not-a-wmd/

Or we could just burn to death from the inside out from radiation or like the poor Syrians get our nervous systems shorted the fuck out, just like a blackout shuts down entire blocks of houses during a rain storm or, like this officer just said, we could all catch the flu that kills us. The fucking flu that has no cure.

So right now I'd rather sit on a fire ant hill with molasses on my ass than fight the government from getting every bit of information it needs to keep that bitten up ass safe. Because I want to live a long life and die in my 80's from cancer like the rest of my family.

Usually it was after taking a lot of LSD, though.

8. For some it seems like they are watching a reality show with out the tv on.

If they only realized how unimportant their call were in the US it is like watching pints of water going over Niagara Falls, it is just more water.

Oh and thanks.

16. Well, fear is well known as a cognitive motivator of conservative behavior.

If you are scared it's almost certain that in some behavior you will be more conservative.

That's human nature, not partisan politics. Around here, one of the best known examples of fear and changed behavior occurs while walking on ice. It's fun to walk on water, until you feel it crack and then suddenly it's a lot less fun.

I do think that this varies among people. And because it varies among people, just how far a nation goes to assuage fear has got to be dealt with in a democratic process.

19. If that's really your priority, then you should be worried about the Assad govt. collapsing

and the rebel factions getting their hands on (more) of Syria's chemical and bioweaponry. That should be your number one fear right now. I don't know how old you are, but the Syrians, under Hafez and Bashir Assad, have had chemical weapons since the 70s. They aren't and haven't been any threat to the United States nor to its legitimate interests, rationally conceived. Most of your life, no doubt like mine, there was never any reason for you to even think about the existence of those weapons, as they are no threat to you.
If the Assad government falls however, that could become a whole different story.

Patrick Henry and Ben Franklin only had to worry about being hanged and drawn and quartered by the British. You may think they were total wusses, and never had to face a world of threats. But you're dead fucking wrong about that. The people of their generation not only had to worry about the British government capturing and executing them during their Revolution, but they also had every reason to fear BETRAYAL by some of their own number, either acting to seize dictatorship of the new republic or acting in league with a foreign power. Britain, which would attempt to retake her colonies in the War of 1812, was a permanent hostile presence to the north. Spain to the South, and France to the West. The generation of Henry and Franklin chose to place the individual freedoms of the 4th Amendment in the fundamental law of the land and to remove them from the clutches of spymasters and Generalissimos ANYWAY and despite the nearness of all those threats. I'm very sorry to hear you don't like freedom very much. Try not to fuck it up for those of who still value it, OK?

20. Security is an illusion, but freedom is real

 

"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing."
-Helen Keller

"If you want total security, go to prison. There you're fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking is freedom."
-President Dwight D. Eisenhower

We're safe here... UNLESS we piss Iran off enough. Then, all bets are off. You know how we piss them off enough? By bombing their ally Syria.

Maraya1969 doesn't give a rat's furry ass if they tap her phones or whatthehelleverthefuck. So get out of my business and go crawl up her ass along with the fire ants.

Sincerely,

LWolf

For the rest:

I didn't join the fearful or the vengeful in the psychopathic and evil "war on terror," and I won't be joining them for this fucking war, either. As someone else once wrote, "Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent."

You are in no more danger today than you were yesterday, or last month.
