The anniversary of September 11, 2001 seems an appropriate time to examine the lie our government keeps putting out that they have a “war on terror”. How do you have a war on terror with a completely unsecure southern border? A million people a year come across that border at night that we have no idea who they are. They are not all here to pick our lettuce. You have to figure there are some headloppers in the bunch.
While the military – industrial complex, and the Congress they have bought, would rather spend billions on weapons systems to fight trillion dollar wars, we would get more bang for our buck if we just secured the damn border. And put secure cockpit doors on all airlines.
