This is Freedom?

Inauguration weapon checkIn Bush’s inauguration today, he made a point of using the words liberty or freedom 40 42 times, which is impressive considering the speech lasted only 21 minutes. Juxtapose this with this image from the parade, where security forces made certain that the rifles of the Army parade unit (and I assume every other military branch) did not contain live ammunition.

Which begs the question: if the president can’t even trust our own top soldiers to have ammunition in his presence, what kind of freedom is he talking about?
