In July of 2008 candidate Obama said, “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
Well the TSA is expanding its’ reach into our lives. Figuratively and literally. They are now testing drinks purchased inside the airport for “explosive residue”!
And they are beginning to show up at public events (RNC/DNC) as well as train and subway stations.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. -Benjamin Franklin
