A Year Ago Today

Filed under: Main — Ryan Jones @ 11:51 am

Do you remember what you were doing on 1-31-07? It’s the day that the Boston police, anti-terror unit, bomb squad, and mass media went totally insane when Cartoon network put up some lite-brite style ads around the city.

It’s the day they arrested artists for placing advertisements. It’s the day the terrorists officially won again.

Of course, it’s not the first time Boston has over-reacted. They DID blow up a traffic monitoring device that the city placed when they confused it for a bomb.

In talking with Jim the other day, he brought up the old Franklin quote: “He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither.”

Then, I reminded him of 2 more of my favorites:

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well armed lamb contesting the vote. – Also Franklin


Sacrificing privacy for security is like taking the walls off your house to build a fence around it. – no clue who said this.

1-31-07 is just one more reminder of the sad path that this country is heading down.
