Don't forget your rallying cry; "MOO".


Unfortunately, the "Moo'ers" are in the majority, and until their "ox" is truly gored change is unlikely.

Vested interests and money drive politics. What might help are term limits...the shorter, the better. Of course, an educated and informed voting public is the ultimate solution, but neither of us will live that long.

By all means keep swinging, but be prepared for constant disappointment and untold frustration. Sad

You are correct.

And when they make busses and trains too hard, they'll move to grocery stores and public parks. And when those are made harder, they'll move to public restrooms and telephone booths. And when those are too hard, they'll just randomly drop things into garbage cans around the city until we have to accept body searches to take out our own trash.

Where do we draw the line? I really want to know because the line is getting closer and closer to my front door.

Give up your freedoms if you wish.

Stop incoming foreign nationals who are on unfriendly terms with us.

This would have to include religeous sects known to be "unfriendly" also.
Behave yourself and you can visit, misbehave, we slap you upside the head and send your body home.
Simple enough to me.

Israel sounds like fun. I love their Dead Sea Mineral Foot Cream and their hand-painted missiles.

And just how do we know for sure they are "on unfriendly terms with us?"

Short of sealing our borders completely, we will never be able to keep out the "unfriendly" in all their many guises.
