Bin Laden has a monster hangover.

Does anybody else think that Osama Bin Laden watched the State of the Union address with his buddies, playing drinking games like so many here did?

Every time Bush mentioned 911 or terrorism they had to take a drink of camel milk.

I doubt it. They were probably toasting themselves with champagne. Whooping and hollering over their good fortune that we have somebody like this in the White House.

I have clear memories from seventh grade civics class of reading for the first time Patrick Henry's great "Give me liberty or give me death" speech. I ask myself; where has that spirit gone?

Why do we let our leaders continue to try to scare us with constant talk of 911, to continue to try and create a climate of fear? Yes 911 comes every year, but 911 was more than four years ago. Any real threat of being attacked is so small that it is beyond pointless to worry over it. Yet Bush and company will continue to bring it up, so as to hang on to any fear the public may still have.

It is time for Americans to tell Bin Laden, and Bush, that we won't live in fear. That we aren't afraid of the dark. That we in no way will let our society be morphed into something out of "1984", where Big Brother can run our lives.

George Bush and pals will continue to repeat what happened on 911 over, and over again, until we stand at the end of our driveways and yell that we are the land of the free and plan on staying that way, no matter the cost. We need to let them know we hold our liberty more dear than our lives.

Danger is a part of life, and to give up bits and pieces of our freedoms to protect ourselves is not really living. We must not let the govt listen to our phone calls or read our emails to protect us. It is a slippery slope, and once we go down the road of letting big brother into our personal lives he will only want more.

We have all heard the quote from Ben Franklin telling us "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety", but it doesn't hurt to hear it again. Our forefathers risked their lives everyday so as we can live free. They knew that if caught they would be put to death, yet they fought on.

To borrow the great words of Patrick Henry. I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
