I think that America is a country which once enjoyed the freedom that we were told about as children, but due to the jealousy of the Muslims in Iraq, who while some of them probably have more money than we'll ever see, don't have the same freedoms we had always had. I never thought it possible to ever have to tighten up security around our country, but those idiots crashing planes into our World Trade Center and Pentagon on 9/11/2001 changed my perceptions greatly. Heck, you can't even call the transit system when you're standing outside freezing your tail off waiting for a bus here any more and ask them if they can radio the driver to see if they've passed your stop. They say they will no longer do it due to "security concerns." The problem I see with that is that it has been nearly 5 years since the 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks. Isn't it a bit late to make a policy such as that?!? I swear, some people really still do have their heads up their behinds about stuff. Here where I live, we are extremely unlikely to be attacked by terrorists (though I would never say never).
