What's shameful is the president has no intention of securing our borders. Now I read that the dems. are considering a deal with Mexico to relax the border for business people traveling in both countries. It's already proven that terrorist enter through the Mexican border. Those in DC are either blind or ignorant, or both.

No, those in DC do whatever the financial elites in this nation want. And they want easier travel and short lines at airports. So they got it. Security is nothing when it comes at the risk of a CEO missing his tee time. Get your priorities straight, people.

How could that be? We’ve been living in Obama’s land for 5 years now. I thought he promised if you like your security, you can keep your security? Besides by now weren’t all our problems to be solved? No more hunger, everyone insured, no national debit, and the world living in peace and harmony as we all circle around the Whitehouse holding hands and singing: Kumbaya my Lord Obama, kumbaya Kumbaya my Lord Obama, kumbaya Kumbaya my Lord Obama, kumbaya Oh Lord Obama, kumbaya

Scare the people, then tax the crap out of them. The patriot act has enabled the government to take inventory of all US citizen's assets and accounts and it has been determined that the Americans can afford to pay more taxes and will pay more taxes without riseing up against the government. they will tolerate this. thanks to the patriot act the government was able to find this information out. now the fleecing begins. "patriot act" nothign patriotic about it, nothing anti terrorist about it. it is a tool to take your savings and property.

@Mel What does being more vigilant about international flights into the U.S. have to do with financial elites making their tee time ? First off, DHS knows who most likely is going to commit such an act of terror especially if that person happens to be on an international flight heading into the U.S. But Mel as we all know "political correctness" prevents us from just simply singling those perpetrators out. Liberal sympathizers -and we have a lot of them -have made it virtually impossible to simply do just that. So yes, ,we all ,including CEO's , have to pay the price on this one. All I can say is make sure your wearing clean socks on your flight back home from Europe.

I was responding to a point made by Make My Day. And I wear flip flops when I go to the airport. And I don't care if it's snowing. Because if I don't, the terr'ists win.

Its so sad we need to go thru all of this but our lives are no safe anymore. I'm a travel agent and I do travel a lot so I can recommend places to go. Ever time I go to airport I know I will be padded down because I set off alarms due to my knee replacements. Even when I went in the ex-ray machine I still got checked.

Classic DHS -- Hey guys lets freak everyone out again its been 4 months since we told everyone about the Diaper Bomber... That will get us a few extra months of work... Strong Intel but No Hard Facts... Clean you magnifying glass Dick Tracy,,,,

I guess that's why it takes me 6 hours to get through security.

"Contagion". look it up. you are all victims of the intelligence community's tactic. You people as a whole are taken for a ride everyday and you pay for it. I would advise just turning off the mainstream media that includes fox, but definately includes cnn, msnbc, abc. find other sources and be a skeptic and think logically after you read an article. get unbrain washed with all this false information. It is difficult because some of the stuff is true and then they throw in false propaganda in after they gain your confidence. God help us all.

Contagion. a corrupting or harmful influence that tends to spread. This was used in Hitler's Nazi Germany against the Jews. It appears to be used against the Muslims now and in particular the Syrians are being targeted. Someone wants to remove the current regime in syria out of the way. A contagion is being attempted on the American people to start an influence to make this happen. Even though it is difficult to make a direct connection as being a threat to our security, the contagion is using children stories. I am not sure what the motive is for our government to do this, but I think it has to do with helping isreal somehow.
