Odd you should think it worthwhile to "live with a few risks" for economic reasons, but not to preserve personal liberties being trampled in the nme of "security."

"We are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy. Allah willing, and nothing is too great for Allah," bin Laden said in the transcript.
I don't recall where or when, but many years ago, before
bin Laden, I read this same thing coming from that part of
the world. A lot of truth to that policy. All they have
to do is make a threat, and we spend millions to guard
against it. They throw up a training camp, populate
it with a few itinerates, and we spend millions in
missiles to blow up some rocks. And they take full
advantage of our kindler, gentler, PC way of conducting
warfare. The fact that they put no value on human life
gives them total advantage.
Until we accept and agree to live with a few risks, they
can/will continue to force us to spend to protect against
the ghosts they can create with a few words.
