LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES ONLY DISAGREE ON WHAT TO DENY HONEST PEOPLE | 2003-08-09
I was watching Donald Rumsfeld saying there is nothing wrong with American intelligence agencies. He says it's a tough job, so everybody should butt out.
After all, who the hell are we? It's not our country or our safety. Rumsfeld says that buddies in the intelligence agencies should not be criticized.
That's typical conservative. In my articles on September 11, 2001 I predicted that not one person in the entire intelligence establishment would lose anything because of that disaster. I did another article on March 16, 2002 called IF YOU WANT A PROMOTION, CAUSE A CATASTROPHE.
Sure enough, all the people who let that catastrophe happen have been promoted and their agencies have just been handed a lot more money, no questions asked.
Liberals want to keep private citizens from having any means of self-defense. The other side of this coin is conservative desperation to keep information away from the public..
I think America would be much, much safer if almost everything were declassified. I think America would be safer if every honest citizen were allowed to carry weapons when and where he chooses.
Right now intelligence information is restricted to the intelligence community, where professional traitors can get hold of it routinely. Guns are kept out of the hands of honest people, but no criminal ever has the slightest difficulty getting a gun if he really wants one.
