On "24" and Homeland Security

If you haven't yet watched the Hertiage Foundation sponsored panel disucssion, "24" and America’s Image in Fighting Terrorism: Fact, Fiction, or Does it Matter?, it's very much worth the 2 hours. In addition to the participants having a good sense of humor and making the time just fly by, there are some great summaries of where we are, some very insightful questions from the audience and moderator Rush Limbaugh, and great quotes. One of my favorites -
Ninety-nine percent of what needs to be done is not somebody in Washington picking up the phone and doing something. ... If you're waiting on somebody in Washington to do something before we can start saving lives, then we're all gonna die!

Precisely true. Folks, if we are not willing to do whatever it takes to keep things moving in the right direction, to turn things around that are going the wrong way, and, if necessary, take up arms to defend our country, homes, and families (and ensuring we each have the tools and supplies to ensure that is possible), you can be dead certain that the Federal government isn't going to do it for you. The operative word in that would be "dead"...
