The war on terror and more bonehead tactics

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/busin...ness-headlines

The FBI and Department of Homeland Security issued nationwide bulletins this year warning police to be on the lookout for bulk purchases of cell phones. Authorities are worried that profits from the trade could end up financing terrorism or that the phones could be used as detonators in attacks.


Do you feel safer now? What a boneheaded statement by the people that are supposed to be making the country safer. Why would it be any more likely that the profits from buying and selling cell phones would fund terrorism? anymore than the buying and selling of anything else in the country?

Sounds like big brother wants to now be able to outlaw any business they don't like in the name of the "WAR ON TERROR". Mission accomplished.

Either that or it is just a continuation of the gummint's sustained effort to make every Merkin so frightened that the powers that be can do what they like without that pesky Constitution thing getting in the way...
