    Real Security

    Congressional Democrats released their plan for the future security of America today. I've read it and it sound like the party is moving in the right direction, however - like the rebuffs - they seem to be talking in vague terms, and I don't like that. Perhaps it is for time concerns or the fact that most people don't care enough or have enough time to get into it (which would include me, but I've made time).

    Anyway, the rebuffs have had their fun criticizing the report, but that shouldn't weigh in with mainstream America as we've been living their alternative or plan for security for 5 years now without much progress or good news (NOT the fault of the media!).

    Senator Christopher S. Bond made an ass of himself and his party by getting quoted in the NY Times today stating, "It's taken them all this time to figure out what we've been doing for a long time."

    I'd bet he never really read the plan, but rather shipped it off to his spin Department for talking points. Here's what they came up with:
    Mr. Bond said that while Democrats sought to showcase their support of national security, they had tried to block renewal of the antiterrorism law known as the USA Patriot Act and the administration's program of wiretapping without warrants.

    This will probably resonate with the feeble and those who have had their fear mongered to a point of paranoia, but his assertion that the Dems are weak on security because they sought to rewrite laws so that they are in one respect Constitutional and at the same time able to protect our way of life is funny and indicative of the nadir reached by our Republican leaders. Protecting things like liberty and freedom should be the first things we protect as a nation, otherwise why protect it.

    I'm proud to be sitting in the Democratic tent right now!
