6 Years + $6Trillion = 25%Success

So we still don't have OBL, turns out that if we had let Saddam just walk away with $1Billion then Iraq could be a Free and Vital Democracy [sans the blown up shit, 500,000+ killed Iraqis, nearly 4000 killed US Troops, $Trillions Spent] and folks can still just wander across the border 75% of the time with radioactive material, unimpeded.

On the other hand, mothers can't take pumped breast milk on flights to feed their babies, nail clippers are a no-no, free speech is scrutinized, illegal wiretaps are rampant, folks are held in jails without probable cause, due process or access to legal counsel and database bots are prowling through everyone's virtual shorts without resistance.

Kiddies, this shit has to get fixed. This is no longer America. It has become the retarded uncle that no one likes and who fights before thinking and mouths off at every chance, thinking he is one tough cowboy. He's not. Only reason folks keep him around is that he has money, and that is running out.

Report: Crossing U.S. Border as Easy as a Stroll
Sept. 27, 2007

The Government Accountability Office, the congressional watchdog group, will release a scathing report on border security today.

"In three out of four locations on the U.S.-Canada border, investigators crossed into the United States from Canada … to simulate the cross-border movement of radioactive materials," states the report.

Video shows a congressional investigator strolling into the United States from Canada along the 5,000-mile border, far from any manned checkpoints. He carries a red bag, which was designed to look like the components of a bomb or even a nuclear device.

Even so, he was able to enter the United States without any questions because no one was there to stop him.

The scene was repeated with another investigator, who walked unchallenged across the U.S.-Mexican border.

"The borders are as porous as they've ever been and I don't see any resolution to making the borders more secure anytime soon," said security expert and ABC News consultant Jerry Hauer, a former emergency management official.

Congressional Feedback

Senators are expected to express their outrage at the findings this morning. Democrats and Republicans agree the situation is unacceptable. "It's shamefully easy for anybody to cross our borders," said Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa.

"Six years after Sept. 11, we just need to be better at guarding our borders," said Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont.

Meanwhile, homeland security officials said they have been trying to improve border security, including hiring more agents and upgrading technology.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

So assuming it's a linear relationship and we haven't just gotten all of the low-hanging fruit, then it will only take another $18,000,000,000,000 or so (in today's dollars) and we'll be rosy by 2025 or so.

Stupendous!! Sounds like an early Christmas!
