DHS and the TSA and the TPTB are keeping you down through the use of fear. It's working on congress critters, our president, a vast majority of the young LEO's and the sheeple. Here is how they do it. They yell Terror Alert, Terrorist Attack or Plot. Everyone runs in fear, stress levels rise. OMG I could died if we don't : pass a law restrict freedoms supply security Yes, 9-11 was tragic. There were many lives lost that day. The little terrorists struck a blow to the American Psyche. But that day the big terrorists gained the upper hand. Our government passed a number of laws, rules and regulations that took away our freedom for the false sense of security. A truly committed actor can and will be able to go undetected and strike first every single time. Our government and law enforcement agencies can do precious little except react after the fact. Why do I seem so nonchalant regarding terrorism? Don't I worry about dying in violent manner such as a car bomb attack. Or in a plane hijacking? Or even having a bomb possibly in the cargo hold of the plane i'm riding on? A biological attack at the football game? NOPE. I have no control over those situations. Worrying about that would just cause the stress to destroy my health. It also helps that I like math and statistics. Did you know that you are 50X more likely to die of a heart attack. 9X more likely to die of Aids/HIV 5X more likely to die in a car crash 4X more likely to commit suicide 3x more likely to die from Cirrhosis of the liver 2x more likely to die from a fall or drowning You are more likely to die of an STD !! Than die in this war on terror. (world wide) It kind of puts things in perspective. I'm more worried about our government and the laws they are passing (that destroy our God given rights and freedoms) to protect us from terrorists.
