The sheeple are screaming about illegal search and seizure...nothing was seized. Sheeple, name ONE thing that was taken away from a private citizen during the search for these two terrorists? NAME ONE THING THE POLICE DID WRONG EXCEPT RISK THIER LIVES TO FIND THESE TERRORIST. How do sheeple get like this? Have a nice day and good luck.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

You articulated it far better than I could have.

Problem is, far too many here have juvenile fastasies of society collapsing and them becoming Rambo or Mad Max.

Collapse isn't what they fear, it's what some idiots want.

That's why I can't understand how people want a zombie apocalypse. First off, it's fictional, second off, why is the odds of something-thousand to one fighting appealing?
I like the humor and pop culture value of it, but I take seriousness of such a thing with a grain of salt

It's a great escapist fantasy. But unfortunately some folks think it's real.

clr8ter;
We know your Left-of-center, pro-Administration, perspective on these forums. You and your neighbors' proclivity to be subjects, subserviant to the whims of the state you embrace, are recognized. I know you think you speak for the rest of the people between your home and San Francisco but you don't. A major metropolitan area was closed down for a wounded 19 yr. old pothead student who escaped by running over his own brother in a stolen SUV and they still couldn't keep up with him?

An entire nation sympathizes with Boston and we all desparately wanted to catch #2, but there are alot of people who see issues with how things developed from beginning to end. Of course now we're being trained that this wasn't a terrorist act anymore -- since he flew the Saudi suspect home, the fastest deportation in the history of the U.S., Hussein Obama has been referring to it as a "tragedy" like it was an accident.

Preparedness, the theme of this particular forum, doesn't mean blindly following orders and accepting being considered an obstruction -- a distraction to authority -- who's very survival is a matter of luck subject to the vagueries of anyone with a gun no matter how much you personally prefer to be told what and where your place in the flock is. There ARE different opinions.

I am not hoping for a shtf situation. I hope that I never have to defend myself with a gun. But I am one of the people that if the police came to my door and told me to wait outside while they searched my home, the answer would be..."Got a warrant?"

Do you think that our troops in Afghanistan get a warrant when looking for terrorists in people's houses.

Since time is of the essence they can't afford to worry about your sensibilities. After all you may have been taken hostage.

No it is not just you. We have been going down-hill ever since John Wayne died. The old American spirit has got up and left, we are becoming serfs under a feudalistic society (I am waiting for the sheriff of nottingham to knock on the door.)
