    Because I find it amusing that everyone is so primed and full of fear that anything and everything is assumed first, to be Terrorism.

    To the extent that there is obviously nothing else that could occur, but terrorism.

    As long as all the "Fair and Balanced" news networks keep screaming about imminent threats, the entire country will continue to be afraid, letting the government do as they wish.

    Ah, because the entire population is to stupid to come up with their own thoughts. I can see that being true for half the population (liberals), but not the whole population.

    You expect me to come up with my own thoughts about how/when/the likelihood of terrorists attacking the nation is? What, do you think I have some covert intelligence agency that scours the globe that I can get information from? No. I am left to listen to what other people say who DO have that access to that information. Which is actually fairly scary because I don't trust them and hence I really have little idea how imminent a terrorist attack may be.

    As to your asinine attack on liberals, tell me, which side is it that buys into the Bush Administrations warnings, red flags, and constantly exhorts us to be scared of the muslims/terrorists/people different than us?

    Specifically show where the admin has said you must be afraid of Muslims or where they even implied it? this is a flat out lie.

    It's just another excuse the left makes. You constantly tell people the administration is doing things they aren't. What red flag did they recently tell you were suppossed to be scared of? When/where did they tell you to be afraid of all Muslims?

    He didn't actually say that the administration said we must be afraid of Muslims, although on quick reading it may seem that way. It is the "which side" that "buys into the Bush Administrations warnings, red flags, and constantly exhorts us to be..."
