Schumer Calls For ‘Do Not Ride’ List For Amtrak

My comments on this article:

Didn’t take long for the Democrat/Liberal/Progressives to try to use the Bin Laden info to try to increase government control over our lives. Schumer is an idiot or possibly sly as a fox. It would be so easy to find a remote spot to blow up a track that it would be insane to use a suicide bomber for that purpose. If Congress falls for this blatant attempt to rob us of more of our freedoms, they should all be sent packing.

Let’s see, what do we have left? Boats, well the big ones are covered but we could check the rest of them. Cars and trucks still need Homeland Security coverage. Those could and have done some damage. Don’t think we have to worry about tractors. motorcycles, bicycles or golf carts, but I’m sure they are a topic of conversation in this administration.

If I were still living in NY, I would be embarrassed that Schumer is my Senator.

Sen. Charles Schumer is calling for better rail security now that the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound has turned up plans to attack trains in the U.S.
“Anyone, even a member of al-Qaida could purchase a train ticket and board an Amtrak train without so much as a question asked,” Schumer said. “So that’s why I’m calling for the creation of an Amtrak no ride list. That would take the secure flight program and apply it to Amtrak trains.”

Schumer is calling for increased funding for rail security in light of the new intelligence.
