I guess there was a heightened alert for US Soldiers attacking Cincinnati that day.Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

When we did our first PCS move after 9/11, the TSA patted down our infant daughter and our cat. The security backlog was so bad that we almost missed our flight, and had to run the length of LAX to our gate before we had time to get our shoes back on. Of course, we were traveling under orders, but that made no difference.--Odysseus

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." Rudyard Kipling - (1865-1936)

Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

Our greatest security asset, I believe, is the ire and suspicion of the general public. On one hand some government officials seem to know this and encourage it, but on the other hand they seem not to trust the public to act in the public's own good. So they 'help' us.

I remember back in 1998 when I returned from Bosnia. Myself and 2 other soldiers were traveling together back to Benning. We landed at ATL Int. and proceeded through International Customs.
Now... Back then we traveled with our weapons... hand carried. I was carrying everyone weapon (3 M-16's and a M203 grenade launcher). slung over both shoulders while the other two handled the baggage. (Keep in mind we WERE in uniform.
As we proceeded up to the customs agent, the nice lady looked me in the eye and asked (I shit you not...) "Do you have any HANDGUNS to declare?"
I replied, "No ma'am, just 3 machine guns and a grenade launcher."
She looked at me, smiled and said, "Welcome Home." and let us pass without a second thought.
How times have changed...."War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made so and kept so by the exertions of better men [and women] than himself." ~John Stuart Mill, 1806 - 1873
