Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Putting the terrorist threat into perspective

This is a point I keep trying to make to my friends and co-workers. The threat to America by the radical Islamic terrorists is minimal. The real threat is by our "elected leaders'" attempts to curb our Constitution in defense. How in hell are we supposed to protect our freedoms from the "freedom hating" terrorists when we let our government trample those freedoms? There is a post below that addresses this same issue. Read on and find it yourselves, you lazy bastiches. --pseudolus

from: Unclaimed Territory - by Glenn Greenwald

History Professor and author Joseph J. Ellis has an Op-Ed in The New York Times yesterday in which he points out what I consider to be one of the most important and under-recognized truths about the way in which we view the threat of terrorism:
 

My first question: where does Sept. 11 rank in the grand sweep of American history as a threat to national security? By my calculations it does not make the top tier of the list, which requires the threat to pose a serious challenge to the survival of the American republic.
