Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Tom Ridge in charge of the homeland security department, not John Ashcroft?

I have disagreed with Tuco-bad on other threads. We are not idealogues of a feather for sure. I do find this post humorous. That said, I disagree with the general idea behind the post although I believe the homeland security thing to be a pandoras box.

If you want to name call, you should at least lump people together who have the same idea. I said nothing about facism. My points are about correcting that which was wrong in the CIA and the FBI. You do not address my position. You keep namecalling and proving my point that your posts are ignorant.

Please explain your #5. I don't see that you've made any sustainable point on either thread. All you have done is join an idiot in name calling and lumping people with dissimilar ideas together and call them drug users.

What's your problem?

You called me one earlier and now you deny doing it. In addition to being an idiot with no decernable argument save name calling, you are also dishonorable. You are not worthy of the time it takes to call you on your lies.

Where have I called anyone a drug user. As I said on the other thread, blanket statements are not wrong when based on fact. You have yet to show otherwise and are now wildly looking around for a corner in a round room. When it comes to George Bush and Republicans in general, the white hot hate of libertarians make democrats, communists and greens look like pikers.

No, but it doesn't surprise me. I put this up there with gun laws though. They don't enforce the laws on the books so when there is a problem their first reaction is to make new laws. If they just started with the laws on the books, such as tracking illegals etc, then see where we are at and go from there. I know, it's just putting everything under one umbrella but look what that did for eduaction? EPA etc. I spend so much time fighting the government on evironmental stuff with federal employees planting evidence to support environmental land grabs that I'm understandably worried about this.

Well, that's acceptable. Everyone has worries. The Democrats are worried about Federal employee union rules while most of us normal Americans are worrying about our survival as a nation.

Your equating liberals with libertarians either shows your gross ignorance or that you are intentionally disruptive. I suggest you either know what you say is wrong or you need to do some serious reading.

You did not respond to my point abour endorsing this guy's libel, so I take it you're not honmorable enough to apologize. Perhaps you should read someone's trip itinerary before blindly following him over the cliff.<p.I have no need to read your response because I have wasted enough time. Have fun with your running partner.

You are truly in need ogf some logic 101. When you say that everyone does a thing, the exception doesn't prove the rule. It proves you made too much of a generalization.

You continue to be dishonerable on your libel. I have wasted too much time with your lies. Find some one else to call a drug user.

I agree with this except that this homeland bill only makes me more worried about my country's survival. I'm not going to run around screaming the sky is falling though.

The last refuge of the "libertarian" i.e. YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND US!. Sorry friend I understand you because I read what you and your brethren post here day after day and I can find the exact same thing on every liberal website out there. It is not difficult to understand what is constantly being vomited up 24/7 around here.

I try to get out and they keep pulling me back in.

You continue to guess wrong. I am not a libertarian.

You are so wrong on your equating liberals with libertarians it's too stupid to address. Here's a hint: socialism is the opposite of small and limited government. Now do not pass go, go straight to the library.

You may have some kind of pathological disorder in your ability to think logically or your blind hatred of some groups has really clouded your thinking.

Find someone who'll talk to you that you haven't called a drug user and maybe they will explain your disorder.

But you said you are not a libertarian. BTW, how is

"They are predictable that's for sure" calling you a drug user. I guess I should have known that you would't be man enough to just admit that you were wrong. Sounds a lot like the 50 year old teenager we had in the Whitehouse for 8 years. Now go and figure out the meaning of "is".

Doesn't matter that I said I am not aa libertarian. Your friend doesn't know that or he would not have made those comments to me. You apparently did not read your friend's post that pinged me and lumped me in with people who have several different ideas; even though I posted it and flagged you.

Now you are trying to spin and squirm because you are dishonest. The words are here on the thread for all to read and no matter how many times you call upon me to admit I am wrong, you only place more emphasis on your lack of ethics.

Well until Bush's signing the homeland security bill yesterday, Ashcroft was in charge.

I would point out Neal Boortz's germane observation that we beat the Germans, Japanese, and the Soviets without a Big Brother-ish "Department of Homeland Security." This organization bears watching. I'm glad Armey and Barr are joining the ACLU, where perhaps they may do that and get that organization to protect all rights in the Constitution (2, 4, and 10 come to mind as "neglected by the ACLU), instead of manufacturing new Leftist ones.
