Have the Terrorists Already Won?

Have you seen the security at the Superbowl? Have you noticed security at different venues when a crowd exists?

My wife and I were in Miami last Saturday night, early Sunday morning before the Pro Bowl. On the way to our terminal we pass by the stadium in Miami. When I passed the stadium, I looked and seen a massive show of force of homeland security, Miami Dade Police, State Troopers etc.

Today, i was on the phone with a friend of mine who is at the Superbowl which is being held in the same venue as the Pro Bowl last week. He said that the show of force, the unbelievable show of a near militia type police presence is amazing. Armed with automatic weapons, bomb dogs, military like movement throughout.

I look around and we have cameras everywhere, from street cams to stop light cams, security cameras on seemingly every corner.

Have they, the terrorists, already won and we are just too stubborn, proud, mindless to acknowledge the win? I have friends who laugh at me because I won't go to a movie theater with them. I try to stay out of shopping malls and other crowded arenas. Scared, not really, just pessimistically cautious I think. I just would rather not be on every security camera, in the line of every police officer, seen by every security force that exists. I feel invaded every time I have to go into an area that requires that I show I.D. that I wouldn't have had to show before 9/11.

You tell me, have they already won? I believe an argument that they have does exist.

What the???Stop funding "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

Okay, I know I'm just a dumbA%$ truck driver, but what kind of funding is necessary for the infamous "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy? Why does it cost us taxpayer money to not ask and not tell that someone is gay?

I just don't get it. My guess is that it will cost more taxpayer money to get this bill, that Congresswoman Gillibrand has apparently introduced, defunded or to stop it's funding than the policy itself costs.

How much can it possibly cost for me not to ask and you not to tell? Look, I wouldn't give a darned whether or not the guy next to me in a fox hole is gay or not. I don't want to be involved with him more than to defend his life or he defend mine, but his choices in life are his. He has his God to answer to, he need not answer to me. My belief is that if the military has vetted him, trained him, and moved him forward with his training in the defense of our country, I can trust him to fight when needed and die if asked. Why would I question the military leaders who have defended this country for so many years.


I'm telling you, these people that we have placed in office in D.C. are despicable. These folks will not only waste taxpayer funds on hand, but they are now wasting borrowed taxpayer funds.

I'm begging you folks, anyone in America, who cares about America, get these dirt bag, spend thrift, low life, caterwauling, thieving, misguided, miscreants out of Washington D.C., out of our seats, out of power, and back to the failing households from whence they come.
