Boom! Let’s Pass More Laws!
Every time there’s a terrorist event, lawmakers stampede to pass
more draconian laws stomping on the Bill of Rights. The problem
isn’t a lack of laws; most of the time it was law enforcement
incompetence that allowed the situation to progress. Steve
Lilienthal from Free Congress Foundation looks at the CAPPS II
program to profile airline passengers. Then Richard Miniter,
author of Losing bin Laden, talks about the radical failures of the
Clinton administration to deal with Usama bin Laden, allowing 9/11
to happen. Speaking of the Clintons, will she or won’t she? Mark
Davis, The Once and Future President (http://www.spectator.org/
casts a vote on Senator Hillary Clinton’s candidacy for the
presidency. John’s boralogue addresses the Boomerang Syndrome: If
you don’t want a law to apply to you, don’t apply it to someone
else. What goes around, comes around.
