JIM CRAMER is mad as hell about September 11.

UPDATE: I was in a rush when I posted this, so all I put up was a pointer. But here’s what bothers me about Cramer’s post:

I now regard our great bulwark of laws that protect individual rights against the right of a potential intrusive government as a plaything of our enemies.

No, it’s not. But as I’ve said before, I think that these sentiments are why it’s very important that we win this war abroad, and soon. If we play defense and rely on homeland security to protect us, we’ll face a ratcheting-upward of dumb and intrusive rules, with no real prospect of victory. And when the terrorists set off a nuke in Houston, or Detroit, or Pittsburgh, more people will feel like Cramer.
