I guess what troubles me is that the enhanced security measures supposedly justified by the "disguised terrorists" will be used to justify an all purpose dragnet not intended to snare terrorists, but instead designed to catch people committing other crimes such as possession a little bit of a controlled substance or get drunk to enjoy at the game, or maybe some outstanding arrest warrant for some other of the myriad things that are defined as crimes (such as delinquent child support). The dragnet will be at the departure airports, arrival airports, and at various other places along the way from Dallas Hotel to the gate where you show your ticket to get in. Anybody caught for a drug possession or domestically related offense will of course be fed into the prison-social or rehabilitation-industrial complex. After all, if these people have enough money to buy a ticket and pay the associated inflated costs of going to a Super Bowl, they must have money to pay fines, court costs, rehab or social worker counselor costs, and would be inclined to surrender and pay that freight instead of fighting and attracting attention to themselves.
EDIT TO ADD: Now as a liberal longhaired liberal, I'm not much of a fan of the conventional wisdom that Conservatives try to draw from Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged
, but she came pretty close to the truth here when Ferris said to Hank Reardon:
“Did you really think that we want those laws to be observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against—then you’ll know that this is not the age for beautiful gestures. We’re after power and we mean it. You fellows were pikers, but we know the real trick, and you’d better get wise to it. There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there it that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted—and you create a nation of lawbreakers—and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Rearden, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”
