    The hard lookin’ guard with the awesome gun in front? They say he collects pollywog statues and sculptures. They say he’s kind of a sensitive guy….Cries easily, they say. Raised twenty seven foster children at last count…You just don’t know do ya, eh?

    Freedom isn’t free. They take cash, credit, or debit!

    Reminds me of the shock (figurative not literal) I got with the examination I had to go through to see the Liberty Bell.

    Just remember, “whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it; and to institute new government…”

    gmartin, hey, just because you make fun of something in life doesn’t mean you want to get rid of it. If Wiley did a cartoon about a crowded bus, would that mean he wants to get rid of buses? No. Crowded buses are funny….Baby crying on an airplane? Eliminate the baby? The plane? Or laugh at the joke! Your choice….

    Perhaps you should read the cartoon again. Where do you see an airport?

    If you think the nonsense in the airport has anything to do with security, or an aircraft’s safety then you are seriously deluded.

    Wiley, I did notice there was no airport. It’s the town’s local Fourth of July party. It is funny in a way but that is the price to be safe now.Downtown at Fair Park in Dallas they look in all the handbags and run a wand around you for metal detection.And its all FREE.Have a great Fourth everyone or at least try to.

    @Omnius. NO ONE on either side of the political fence has any claim to the high moral ground. NO ONE!! Rationality has gone the way of the dodo bird and we are all losers in this game.

    You know, G, it appears your life’s ambition is to die in bed. Viewing cowardliness as a virtue and being mindlessly subservient goes a long way in achieving that goal, doesn’t it?

    Oh man, this comic was in my head before I even read it here! So many places around the country now, you can only celebrate your freedom in a government-approved manner….

    “Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.” — British statesman William Pitt (1759-1806)Now go look up the odds of actually being killed by a terrorist bomb, gmartin997.

    #gmartin – man up. No matter what you do you will die one day, the day God says “Times up!” Good news is nobody dies before their time nor a moment later. So live now. And I choose to live free even if it means risks of terrorist. I’m not afraid of any lil ol terrorist, I have an ex-wife.

    I love that Wiley reads the comments on his comic page! Just wanted to say love the comic and thank you! Hope you have a wonderful 4th!

    My small town fairs are still small town stuff, so I don’t get cavity searched here, yet.

    If the name you are looking for is Hadji (like Johnny Quests’ friend), he was a Hindu, not a Muslim.But wouldn’t want you to have to go without making a snotty and inaccurate comment.

    I’m not sure if this is the exact quote, but here goes; " One who is willing to sacrifice personal liberty for a measure of safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety" B. Franklin.

    How many studies—independent and federally-funded—have shown that these crazy security measures JUST DON"T WORK? The human element is just too big a chaos factor to ever overcome. Lax security workers, the number of travelers, nothing can prevent the truly ingenious and dedicated from doing nasty things or ensure nothing dangerous gets by security. But if you truly endorse such over-the-top, invasive security (which technically violates the Third Amendment) then so be it. That’s your opinion and you’re welcome to it.

    .And people, the proverb is, “Any society that will sacrifice a bit of liberty for a bit of security will gain neither and lose both.” – Benjamin Franklin
