Just in. Everyone boarding an airplane must now be subjected to a Digital Rectal Exam. It's been said that terrorists were planning to stick C4 Explosives up their anuses and disguise their remote detonators as cellphones.

protc3: I'll tell ya what this world is coming to, we as a nation have lost our damn minds. We are allowing our government, and conservative elements in the mass media to brainwash us into believing that if we relinquish some of our rights, if we attack nations as a deterrence against terrorism then we as a people, will be happier and safer.
Tell, me, are you guys happier that you might not, one of these days, may be allowed to bring your RC equiptment onto airplanes? We now can't bring our own drinks onto planes. If we even question our government's motives and policies we're deemed as un-patriotic, and even sometimes siding with the terrorists? This has gone too far.
The first George Bush was smart not going into Baghdad. As a former director of the CIA, he knew that as much as a despot Saddam Hussein was, Saddam was the balance of power needed in the Middle East to quell Shiite and religious fanatacism.
Now we're stuck in Iraq to try and clean up the mess. We pull out now, Iraq may as well be part of Iran.
