Security & Other TSA Myths

I’ve been reading loads of commentaries and 140 character opinions regarding the TSA and their “new” screening activities.  Let’s just say I am more than mildly annoyed at DHS, and, quite frankly, the US Government.  Instead of using security techniques that actually work, our government remains committed to political correctness at the expense of our Constitutional Rights.

The Israelis are the acknowledged world experts at all things security, and they think we are nuts!  The terrorists are in their caves and mud huts laughing at TSA attempts to keep us safe.  Everyone, except the brilliant minds at DHS, know these efforts are worse than futile.  It was said best by a security expert on TV over the weekend: Our security efforts are reactive, not proactive.  Amen to that!

The ACLU has gone to great lengths to make profiling illegal.  So, thanks to them, and their enablers, TSA feels it necessary and perfectly fine to grope, strip and humiliate Americans so we don’t offend someone.   Seems it is okay to humiliate Americans for appearance sake rather than being effective.  I am NOT surprised the ACLU is silent on these invasive search techniques.  What are they going to say?  Oops, profiling works…  Not on your life.  Political correctness is much more important than, say, our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

I get angry when I see TSA agents near strip searching uniformed members of the military; I get angry when I see TSA agents fondling children; I get angry when I see TSA agents humiliate the elderly; the infirm; the general public, all in the name of national security.  What a frigging joke, people!  How long are we, as a nation, going to take this Big Government intrusion into our lives?  What is is going to take to get us to say NOStop Now!?  I am waiting for the next step in DHS attempts to keep us safe.

The next logical step taken by DHS/TSA will be when Pistole or whatever that goon’s name is, and Janet ‘Napoleon’, decide that because the Saudi’s found explosives in a terrorist’s anus, body cavity searches will be mandatory for all passengers.  Do you think Americans will drop and bend for this?  Or will they quit acting like sheep and tell the Feds “Enough is enough!”

Yes, I am disgusted.  Yes, I am angry – at the Feds and at Americans in general.  I think this nation has too many sheep as citizens and not enough Patriots.  Well sheep.  Prepare for another fleecing and who knows what else your government has in mind for you.

Get mad people.  Tell your government enough is enough!

What Are We Missing?

September 23, 2009

With the goings on in D.C., it is hard to keep track of Obama and the Left’s agenda.  Let’s review the list: Health care reform, health insurance reform, stimulus, TARP, finance and industry bailouts, government takeover of the auto industry – or at least two-thirds of it, cap and trade, regulation of TARP bank salaries, Treasury proposal to regulate all private financial salaries, net neutrality, modified Fairness Doctrine, and, very quietly, that pesky political document, the Bill of Rights.  Is that the entire list?  I know I am missing something.  Of course I am.  That’s the name of this blog entry.

Why are Congress and the Obama Administration throwing so much at us so early in his presidency?  Could it be they know they have but a short window to enable laws and programs that otherwise would be rejected out of hand as over-reaching and harmful to our economy and our freedoms?  Why else are these bills rushed through without time for politicians and the public to read them.  In spite of promises to the contrary, President Obama’s team is not posting bills on the White House website five days prior to his signing them leaving us little opportunity to evaluate and make our thoughts known to our Senators and Representatives.

This Administration and (most of) Congress get angry when we questioned them during the August recess.  Oh, let’s not forget politicians calling U.S. citizens Nazis, Astroturf, extremists, racists, and un-American, all because we have the temerity to question Washington wisdom.  How rude of us…  For what reason could they be angry?  I keep forgetting the Obama Administration and Congress do know what is best for us, the common folk.  After all, it is the government’s job to take care of us.  They do have the proper training and knowledge to tell us, the common masses, what is in our best interest; we should just shut up and listen.  Thank God (Oops, sorry ACLU) for the government!  It’s not like we elected them to do a job for us.  You think they misunderstood and believe they are there to do a job on us?

America, what are we missing?  I am very concerned.  Are you?
