    Such are the risks of living in a free society. Exactly how much freedom are you willing to give up in order to protect yourself from this threat?

    FWIW, there are significantly greater odds that your wife will stab you to death than that you will be killed by terrorists with a dirty bomb. You should think about that the next time you criticize her cooking, Goshin.

    Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    That won't do a damn thing. Just look at what happens when a danish cartoonist draws a picture of muhammad within his own borders. The majority of the Muslim world ****s itself and calls for his death. Its a pipe dream to believe that hiding in the corner keeps one safe from the happenings of the world.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    We'll see biological or chemical attacks in our food or water supply first ... IMO.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Most Americans are not willing to do such a thing. Therefore our borders will remain porous and enemies will be able to get in. We can definitely make things more difficult without doing the things above but its not exactly hard to get into the US witt people and items as Mexico demonstrates on a daily basis.

    Our trillion dollar military should be used to defend this country instead of used to spread our influence, nation building, regime changes, and policing the world. Protecting our waters, airspace, borders, ports and airports should be the primary function of the US military. Time to start protecting this country instead of other countries. That would actually make us safer. The CIA, air pwer and spec ops forces should be used to destroy our enemies.

    Borders can be secured if people are sufficiently ruthless. The Texas Rangers prevented large scale Mexican immigration into Texas during much of the 19th century.

    Desperation and radicalization are the precursors to ruthlessness.

    It just doesn't matter to the political and economic elites what Americans want. The elites are self-interested.
