Liberals never let a chance to take away liberties slip away!
Check it out:
Mayor Doomberg in New York: “In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday the country’s interpretation of the Constitution will ‘have to change’ to allow for greater security to stave off future attacks. ‘The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry,’ Mr. Bloomberg said during a press conference in Midtown. ‘But we live in a complex word where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.'”
Didn’t we add Homeland Security under the same premise? The Department of Homeland Security, wasn’t it created with the same argument that it’s worse than it’s ever been. We’ve gotta take extraordinary steps, so we’re gonna wand you and we’re gonna search you and we’re gonna disrobe you. And it hasn’t stopped anything, has it? We’re gonna streamline information, but it’s made things more miserable. And it didn’t stop what happened at Boston.
So here we go again, it’s the same old thing. Government gets bigger, fails to stop something, and then government says the answer is we gotta get bigger. The mayor said, “‘We have to understand that in the world going forward, we’re going to have more cameras and that kind of stuff. That’s good in some sense, but it’s different from what we are used to.’ The mayor pointed to the gun debate and noted the courts have allowed for increasingly stringent regulations in response to ever-more powerful weapons.”
