Airport Screeners Miss Bomb Parts You're thinking, here comes another rant about what we all already know. But here's my twist: read the last sentence of the quote again. Investigators bought bombs for $150 on the internet and sneaked them onto planes. It's that easy and cheap to make a bomb. It's that easy to get it on a plane. Now, the tone of the article would have you believe that this means we could all die horrific, painful deaths at any second. I think that, in fact, this proves the opposite. If it's so easy, so cheap, and we are surrounded by enemies so insane and insidious that they would take any chance to destroy our freedoms and kill us, why haven't they!? Because it's not that big a deal. There really aren't that many crazed "islamo-facists" out there trying to kill us. It's actually hard to convince someone to blow themselves up, even for 72 virgins. They'd rather get on with their lives, without interference. Of course, our President does his best to convince our "enemies" (ie; people who just want to live their lives without being exploited or blown up) that we really are as terrible as those few real demented bastards make us out to be. I'm sorry that I'm probably articulating something everyone's already figured out. I just wanted to put it down in words. Upshot: People really don't want to **** with us, particularly if we don't **** with them first. We should stop ****ing around. Oh, and airport security is useless and going to get worse.
