You Are Being Lied To
By whom? Anybody that justifies the loss of a few basic freedoms for so called "national security." Benjamin Franklin said it best: "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
LewRockwell.com has an article by Nicholas Monahan, entitled Coffee, Tea, or Should We Feel Your Pregnant Wife's Breasts Before Throwing You in a Cell at the Airport and Then Lying About Why We Put You There? Pompus, patronizing security officers, wild, inaccurate accusations, and confiscated scissors from a hygine bag. I'm glad those in charge of the safety of free people everywhere are so dedicated to their cause.
Watch out: your civil liberties are in jeopardy.
