16. So fucking sick of all the Repugs, and that's truly just about all of them,

who ignore 9/11 and try to pretend it didn't happen under GW. They try to pretend that GW's (Cheney's?) negligence caused this. He was warned and totally ignored it, on purpose? Funny, his attorney general was flying in private planes because of the threat of commercial airlines being bombed by Islamists, and said they had credible evidence of this threat to plane travel. Yet, GW had a rule passed within a month of taking office that no Saudi Arabian would be screened for terrorism or kept out of the US, even if they were on a terrorist watch list. He als0 completely ignored a report that stated that BinLaden was looking to have a big terrorist incident here. Funny how Cheney told Afghanistan they'd see their country covered in gold if they signed the deal with oil companies to build a huge pipeline or if they didn't it would be carpeted in blood.

Sorry Jeb, your lies don't fly. We know this is being done to control us, to spy on us, not to stop any terrorist threat. It's just another gift to the MIC, including Carlyle that's partially owned by your dad, and another illegal way to hurt anyone not part of the 1%.
