    Guess if you're a blue city, then fighting terrorists isn't so important.

    It's good to see Congress duking it out for the federal bucks. "Good luck" ,Michael. It's like you're a single dad with 50 kids fighting over the scraps.

    New York's had tons of money for 5 years to shore up their defenses. It's time to make sure the rest of the country is secure, too. It's like a house robbery.

    If some guy robs my house by breaking in through the front door, the first thing I'm gonna do is spend a bunch of money making that front door damn near impenitrable. Well, there's no point in keeping up the improvements after that. Then, it's time to put more security on the back door and windows. Washington and New York are the front door. They've gotten their stuff. It's time to lock the back door and the windows.

    Funny. Everyone seems to think that Grand Central Station, the Empire State Buiding, the Brooklyn Bridge, NY Harbor, the Stock Exchange, etc., etc., etc., are the next logical targets. NY is far from impenetrable; it still doesn't even have adequate checks on the cargo coming in or the water supplies.

    I'm sure that Chertoff's decision had nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that NY is a blue city or the fact that the places now getting more money are those facing tough races in the mid-term elections. Sure it doesn't. *sarcasm off* :rolleyes:

    NY still gets more money than any other city in the nation. Stop whining.
