State ferries: Ferry checks protect rights

Our enemy is void of cumbersome equipment, visible means of supply, and has the advantages of surprise and tactical secrecy. These traits give him excellent mobility and the freedom to kill as many Americans in a single stroke as he would in a major military campaign. His use of asymmetric warfare is a brilliant strategy that requires equal determination to overcome and defeat. It is this fact that idiots, like the ACLU or better yet, “The Inebriated Silly Liars’ Club,” can’t comprehend.

The American people deserve the right to live without fear, it is one of the most cherished rights of freedom we have. The freedom to walk without fear, the freedom to send our children to school without fear, the right to prosperity without fear, the right to sail on the waters of the Puget Sound, without fear.

If the “Silly Liars’ Club” was around during World War II and saw the level of interior security in America then, they’d all die of strokes trying to put a stop to it. We took those measures because the universal, national right of freedom from fear and freedom itself was in grave danger. That is true today, our nation and our right to live and prosper in freedom, without fear is in great danger. Today it makes me sick that the ACLU is more concerned with defending the rights of child molesters to gather in a group of sick perverts called NAMBLA than defending the common right of the American people to live without fear.

There is nothing wrong with security for our ferry system when it is logical, well managed and vigilant. It’s not the government who provides for security of the people alone, it is the people who provide it. By standing as one against a common enemy, we are our own best security.

While the “Silly Liars’ Club” continues to pontificate its false fecal garbage of caring for our rights when they do not, our president, our service members and our people are taking the war back to our hated enemy on his own lands. We are destroying his weapons, killing and capturing his operatives. We are denying him via the measures of honest and logical security at home the right to kill our people and enslave them with fear. Those who’ve given their lives since Sept. 11 have died so our people can enjoy their daily ferry rides across the waters and between the lands we love so well, without fear of being murdered by scum. We owe them to see this fight to its logical conclusion — peace and freedom for our country, our people and our children. The restoration of the universal right of all Americans to live, prosper, worship and exist without fear.

If the people will only put their faith and trust in themselves, their soldiers and their leaders and not in the hands of such putrid trash as the ACLU, we will win this war and put an end to the terrorists’ freedom to kill our people, which the ACLU wants so much to protect.
