I still don't understand why they needed to make the sign nationalistic:?:.
:idea:Seems like the old beware of dog would be sufficient.

Thanks, i was a bit worried about taking it. It looks in to NOAA, I think it was only 3 or 4 months ago that the FBI has been hastling people around here about shooting things like that. I really don't get why.

Does 9-11PLUS ne'er-do-wells being apprehended casing US facilities give you a clue why you are challenged when taking your photos?

We live in challenging times.

I strongly disagree with that. I think that it is quite indicative of the weakness in the goverments case that only a half dozen have been tried out of many thousands. Half of the point of this is civil disobediance. Where would we be without those in the past who acted with conscience rather than by the law? All I know is that there is a shocking crackdown lately of basic human rights around here.

I should probably explain. I am half german, a buddhist, and gay. I see what we are doing now to myself and others as being very representative of things in the past.

Most people are unaware that during WWI the german language was banned for teaching. Frankfurters became hotdogs, hamburgers became salisbury steaks, and sour kraut became liberty cabbage. I feel great pain for those who are having their culture pressured out of the public eye, and wonder if in the future they will feel as i do, a lack of understanding about who they really are.

I may never be able to marry, it is possible that i will not be allowed to raise a child. Yet many parents are unable or unwilling to do a proper job themselves.

I love America more than many, but i cannot allow all of this to go on without saying "Nein! Nicht im meine Amerika. Ich bin eine Amerikaner und ich mochte keine krieg" (forgive the spelling and grammer)
