Two terror strikes in Russia in two days. Are we immune to terror strikes? Its just a matter of time before Russia will be reading about us. To me, this is a new era, and infringing on people’s phone calls or being X-rayed at the airport is a must.

If you remember, nobody complained about the party-line phone, and every household had a different phone ring. You could listen in to your neighbor’s conversation. In our house, we had a city phone and a country phone. The city phone had an operator where the country phone did not, but it did have a crank on the side; as you turned the crank you had either two spins or one spin or a combination of both. Ours was two longs and a short — whatever it takes to protect the people from terror attacks.

I just would not be happy taking a flight and end up with parts of that plane sticking out of my body. To me there is a huge job of determining who is coming into this country, who is a threat and who is not. And so far I don’t see our state or federal government doing much to stop it.
