Homeland Security?

"Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both" - Benjamin Franklin

Dereliction of Duty

While conducting suspicionless searches and seizures on the traveling public many miles North of the international border, it has come to my attention that Border Patrol agents along the border were recently ordered to stand down by Border Patrol administrators in order to undermine the Minuteman Project in Southern Arizona. In other words, the Border Patrol and Department of Homeland Security are playing politics with our rights. They claim that conducting suspicionless roadblocks against the traveling public in the interior of the country is necessary for our security and safety while at the same time ordering field agents actually patrolling the border to look the other way.

Do you feel safer yet?
