    no living in a free country with the expected levels of security coinciding is a near impossible task. The money spent itself in attempting it allows the terrorists to win they would love to bankrupt us. They kill thirty in brussels we spend another hundred million we cant win this type of war while maintaining freedom and any sense of open border policy. And remember those that would trade security for freedom deserve neither. If we are that concerned over it lets just put more money into bombing anyone in the middle east or any country for that matter that looks like a threat and bring back the napalm. Trade the tsa for napalm.

    It's called,"complacency".
    Gotta say though,the pic of the Nat Guards/Army in Penn Station is a fraction of what's really there.
    NYPD takes this **** VERY seriously and has more undercover in that tunnel than you'd ever be able to comprehend.
    I saw a guy get tackled ,wrapped up and dragged into a room, in way less than a minute a year or two ago.
    A security guard in Rock Center? Not so much.

    Before I opened this thread, I thought for certain that it would be about the new F 35 Lightning II aircraft, and what a loser it is.

    While there is much truth in what you say, the overwhelming problem these days is the expectation of freedoms with out taking the responsibility for having them.

    Better yet, though it is now to late in this instance, let's as a country take responsibility for how we act and not create the environment for these problems in the first place. Not everyone in the world wants to be like us, as hard as it is for most Americans to see. Not every society in this world wants our form of democracy.

    "The idea however, must have intrigued the monarchs, for they kept Columbus on a retainer. But their focus was on a war with the Muslims and Columbus would have to wait."

    http://www.biography.com/people/christopher-columbus-9254209#first-voyage-to-the-new-world

    but it actually goes before even that consider istanbul Constantinople as well when they say they hate america and want the return of the islamic state what do you think that means? Not all of course but enough. It was the same then had friendly muslims in spain and then the "others" its just a thousand years later
