How important is it for you and your family to be secure? Do you feel secure from terrorism? Are you confident that your government is doing everything possible to secure your from terrorism?
This short and to the point article outline three things we can do as a society to prevent terrorism here on our own turf. The reasons for these three may or many not surprise you. They do, however, make a very strong case for doing other than our government is doing now.

Hypothesis, theory and fact are all distinct categories of human thought:
• A hypothesis is a tentative explanation that can be tested through investigation.
• A theory is an established set of ideas that can be used to make predictions.
• A fact is an idea always predicted by theory and always proven by rigorous tests.
"Global warming," "climate change" and "climate disruption" are phrases bandied by zealots with a vested interest in their claims. If true, these conditions will require radically polarized expenditures of money to reverse such effects, which also require radical lifestyle changes for much of humanity.
Notwithstanding that "climate change" has obtained for as long as climate has existed, the hysterical response to the lack of empirical evidence and tested predictions would be hilarious, if not for the seriousness with which many powerful groups have taken this to affect our lives.
Why does this decades long pause or hiatus in "global warming" remain unacknowledged? "It's fair to say that this pause is something of an embarrassment to many in the climate research community, since their computer models failed to indicate that any such thing could happen." In other words, this hiatus runs counter to the vested interest of many powerful people.
Nevertheless, the scientific method itself does not bend to zealots. Do you?
• What if Congress required at least 51% of all Representatives and Senators to approve all legislation? That means, at least 51 Senators and at least 218 Representatives at the Federal level.
• What if all three branches of government (Executive, Judicial & Legislative) must be elected (see above) to only one (1) term of five (5) years?
Not being a fan of the state, this is not my ideal world. Disliking the status quo even more, I'd love to see the results of such equitable changes to our representative republic.
What do you think?
15 of the 19 terrorists were allowed into the US with Saudi passports.
• Where is the investigation of Saudi complicity in 9/11?
• Why has the US not invaded Saudi Arabia?
• For that matter, why isn't Saudi Arabia teeming with insurgents?
• How have they escaped infestations of jihadis and the turmoil that brings?
• Why is IS/ISIL/ISIS (or, whatever) not laying siege to Mecca and Medina?
It seems to me that the only country in the Mideast totally immune to war and unrest is Saudi Arabia.
