    I'm not saying the list is perfect - but it's better than 'nothing'.

    On the basis of liberty, or police state and the fact that there is only a slippery slope in between, I disgree.

    I don't believe liberty is more important than 'security'. :-/

    Unfortunately people would tend to think that we need to violate the Constitution for our security, rather than maintain the liberty it provides.

    I would rather error on the side of legality and giving liberty.

    My argument is always that if we could all carry "arms" as the document states, terrorism would be pretty freakin' rare.

    I was listening to the radio while reading the story and they had some of the people on the no fly list who had no idea why they were on it, including a retired reverend and a woman in the U.S. military. Sounds like the list is kinda screwed up.

    If the List stops ONE terrorist from commiting an act against us, or anyone else. The list is well worth it. we dont live in a perfect world, why does everything have to be perfect?

    This list is big brother government at its worst. It always shocks me to hear conservatives who constantly bitch that the government is too big say they are all too willing to hand over their freedom for some false sense of security. I think Benjamin Franklin said it best "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety"
