Mylena: Do you think the right thing to do is to give in to the terrorists and change everything we do. We have made too many concessions to them already and allowed them to change our way of life, freedom during travel and damaged our constitutional rights. I would rather we thumb our noses at them and go on with life.

Who is the NFL writing the check to for all the security? Snipers, Blackhawk helicopters, F16′s, countless cops…

Or are they just passing out some free tickets to the politicians?

Remember, the NFL does not pay taxes… yet they are benefiting from what… $20 million+ in free security?

What’s wrong with this picture?

The Faker in the WH assured us that OBL’s death relegated the terrorist we now face to the JV squad and here we are spending as much in money for the SB security as the Russkies are trying to safeguard the Olympics, that to me is unreasonable and certainly indicates just how little regard this clown in our WH has for the situation his words imply about our threats from the vanquished cult islam and their threat.

He,his policies and assurances are no more to be trusted than the idea that he can supply a BC to prove he is a viable office holder or trust the words of his intelligence when no one can see his restricted credentials,this makes him until other wise proven a Fraud..in the meantime we see him diminish our way of life, liberties and freedoms while his paranoia suffocates this nation…

Thank goodness the Super Bowl isn’t being played in a southern border state, or there would be no security enforcement. Luckily the NSA knows every video game everyone at the game plays, so we can rest easy.

If there is an attack at the Superbowl you can be sure of one thing, it was an inside job.

Isn’t this what we hear before every major event that happens in the United States now? We’re put on heightened alert (like during the Boston Marathon) and bureaucrats cover their backsides in the event that something happens. Let’s hope that instead of telling Americans to watch out for suspicious things that they use the tools they have and the privacy they intruded upon to keep the bad guys from getting near the Super Bowl or anywhere else.

Boycott is the only answer. If the stadium was only a third filled, and if folks refused to tune in, this overkill stupidity would cease quite quickly.

So they’ve implemented policy to concentrate targets in one place and are now concerned about an attack there. Well played police state, well played.

If things are so bad that you have to have the military out for security at a football game then maybe it is time to think about not having a Super Bowl and doing a better job of securing the borders. This shows there is little or no faith in our current security and agencies tasked with security.
