Agenda Hide and Seek

I am absolutely sick of these people who are using 9/11 and national security priorities in order to convince people to enforce immigration policy.

I'm not saying that it's not important to make sure terrorists aren't getting into the country through unprotected borders. It is. However, when people start talking about reforming drivers' licenses, you know they're just using national security as an excuse to do something that they've wanted to do even before 9/11. It's simply not about national security. It's all driven by their underlying feelings about illegal aliens.

So they're taking a perhaps more complicated issue that needs to be handled with more intelligence and care and invoking images of Mexican terrorists to scare people to legislate off a knee-jerk reaction.

Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I should start doing this too. It seems to work well.

Okay then, Microsoft poses a national security threat. It cripples the nation into being dependent on faulty software. Gates and Balmer need to be arrested, interrogated, beat up, and put away for a long time. Their money should be redistributed. And this has nothing to do with my feelings about Microsoft. It's about national security, really. National security trumps all, including freedom, logic, and reason.
