TSA took her son away

Resentment has been building up ever since TSA began its petty tyranny in airports all over the US. Now that TSA security theater has been proven again and again to be worthless at catching and stopping terrorists but very good at terrorizing innocent citizens who everyone can tell are not terrorists simply by talking to them for 30 seconds, the American people are boiling over with rage at TSA. TSA is the embodiment of the big government tyranny that Obama and other Democrats want to use to regulate the US economy and populace. TSA is the model for every other piece of big government that faces us, from the Health Care Highjack to the New Financial Regulations. It's true that TSA was created when George W. Bush was president, but Democrats were the ones who forced all airport screening to be done by the government instead of by private companies. They probably were angry that Halliburton or Blackwater might get the work, and wanted the work to be done by union drones who would funnel money to Democrat campaign funds instead. Well, now TSA is being unionized so they are getting their wish.

Is TSA the model of the US's future that you and everyone you know want? Or is it the warning of the doom that lies ahead if we don't change direction?

4 female TSA agents stood at the end of 2 conveyor belts, gloves on their hands, none of them searching anyone, none of them doing anything but watching luggage pass through the conveyor belts.

It was at this point in time that I realized my flight was leaving in less than 45 minutes. I had not even been searched yet. I began to panic.

Through the 6 holes in the plastic box that contained Jackson and I, I began asking for help. I waved to all 4 female TSA agents, each of them looked at me and then looked away. Then I started speaking through the 6 holes, and said, “Can someone please search me? My flight leaves in less than 45 minutes.”

Each of the 4 women answered me using the same exact phrase…

Ma’am you need to wait. I don’t care about your departure time.

The female agent then called an older gentleman, also a TSA agent over. The male TSA agent stood in front of me and said “I’m going to have to pat down your son.

With Jackson still sitting in my lap (he was being so good despite all of this chaos) I said ok and continued to hold on to my son, expecting the male TSA agent to start touching Jackson.

He then told me, “I’m going to have to pick him up to inspect him.”

I handed him my son.

I handed him my son and he walked away with my child.

My eyes welled up with tears, I stood up from my chair and I asked the female TSA agent, “Where is he going? Where is he taking my child? Why is he leaving?”

Jackson, while being whisked away looked at the male TSA agent awkwardly and repeated “no no no no.

Inflation is Here

The spin-meisters in charge of computing the CPI claim that prices haven't gone up, but everyone who buys groceries knows they have. Milk has gone up. Cornmeal and flour have gone up. Eggs went up. Cheese and meat doubled in the last two years. Even beer and wine are more. But the CPI is stagnant, even declining.

If you can accept the truth of what you see with your own eyes at the grocery store, then maybe you are ready to understand how inflation works.

Step 1: Print more money.

Bread costs more, now, and so does milk and meat. Gasoline is a bit higher; a chain reaction has started, and now everything is higher-priced. What isn’t getting more “dear” probably will be soon.

Why? Well, part of it goes with rising petroleum prices. In particular, gasoline has gone up, and that often has an immediate impact on grocery staples such as grain products. After all, farming is gasoline-intensive—and your supermarket could only absorb so much on its own before it had to pass some of those increased prices on to you. Recession or no recession.

YID With LID: These Are The Reasons Why Israel's Airline Security Doesn't Need To Touch Our Junk



#TSARebellion: Demand to be groped. The system will break.

This is called peaceful resistance.


Don't Let Unions Take Over Every Police and Fire Department in the Country

Go and sign this petition.

Dear Concerned American,
With new pro-Right to Work Congressmen and Senators forced to wait until January to be sworn in, Big Labor's
allies are set to ram every item on the union bosses forced dues wish list into law within the next few weeks.
You and I cannot let this happen!
If this bill passes, it will force public safety
workers, such as your policemen and firefighters, under union boss control and
would eventually spread to all public sector jobs.

Please sign the petition below and help stop Big Labor's plans for the "lame duck" congress

We will fax your petition to your Senators immediately.

Earmark Donor States | Cato @ Liberty

Cato Institute studies those states that receive more in federal funds than they contribute in taxes and finds Mississippi gets 11x as much as it pays out. Cato claims this seems to be because smaller states and more rural states receive more earmarks than more populous states. But Nebraska pays almost as much compared to the amount it gets back as Illinois and California and more than New York, and it's both small and rural. The explanation must be the flood of federal dollars that flowed into the state after Hurricane Katrina.

That said, I bet Mississippians would gladly agree to stop taking so many earmarks if we would never have to get walloped by the most destructive Hurricanes ever. We'll have to get rid of our porker Senators, of course, but I suspect we're about as fed up with the Congress of thieves as are people of every other state.

Of Tea Parties, Tempests, and Teapots

The Tea Party Patriots and the Claremont Institute both scheduled shindigs to welcome the Freshman class of Republicans to Washington DC on the same day, at overlapping times. It's a classic tempest in a teapot. Leaving aside hurt feelings, territoriality and resentments it's important to make a few points. First, after Republicans won a historic victory on November 2, 2010, it's critical for those Congressmen and women who actually get to vote during the Lame Duck session to come out of the gate strategically smart enough and united enough to defeat the Socialist Democrats and their destructive agenda. Most freshmen are not in the Lame Duck congress, but have a few months to get their feet on the ground.
Second, I'm sure that newly elected Senators and Representatives who owe their victory to Tea Party voters and donors are thankful to the Tea Parties for their assistance. It would only be polite to show up at the Tea Party event and shake some hands.
Third, the Tea Party event is more likely to emphasize the principles and values that unite We the People with our Republican public servants than the Claremont event, which will be full of lobbyists looking for "friends" to help them get favorable tax treatment and earmarks. If our newly elected Representatives and Senators don't already share our Tea Party principles and values, they aren't going to learn them at one Tea Party event. So it won't be the end of the world if they attend Claremont's event. On the contrary, they may make valuable alliances at either or both events.
Fourth, We the People will respect our public servants according to what they do in Congress, not according to whose shindigs they attend.
Fifth, We the People are watching what the 112th Congress does on the job. If they remember what the phone lines and fax machines were like during the Obamacare cramdown, that's what it will be like from now on.
I will finish up with a note to the 112th Congress.

We surround you. That isn't just a slogan, it's a fact. We the People outnumber you. 
You are not our masters, but our servants. You represent us.
An awake and aware citizenry watching everything you do in Congress is the new normal. Don't forget why you were sent to Congress, to restore and secure the individual freedoms of We the People. You were not sent to get your fair share of goodies for your district, your friends, your family, yourself, or campaign donors. You were sent to restore freedom to the land, to peel away thousands of pages of harmful regulation and taxation, to de-fund and dissolve departments that don't work or that work to destroy American business and oppress the American people, and to begin a long lifetime's worth of work of reducing the oppressive, leviathan U.S. Government to its Constitutional limits.

Federal Worker Salaries of $150,000+ Double on Obama’s Watch

  • Storefronts shuttered everywhere

  • 17.5% true (U6) Unemployment

  • $760B Stimulus that didn't stimulate

  • Government socialization of US Auto manufacturing, medicine, banking, and insurance

  • Out of business signs everywhere

  • 1 in 6 Americans on food stamps

The economy is in a shambles. And at the same time, the number of Federal Government workers making over $150,000 per year has doubled. Washington DC is vibrant and growing. All the money in the US is making its way to Washington DC because the US Government has summoned it there.

Medicare killed the family doctor

Ever increasing regulations combined with low payment rates have raised the retail price of medicine for everyone else and made it impossible for family doctors to see a limited number of patients, or even to see entire families.

Read the original article for the comments.

Low government payment rates became the private-sector benchmark, resulting in fragmented care.

Communists, anti-racists are key worker organizers in North Carolina

The communists are coming out of the woodwork now. Here is a communist group in North Carolina describing how it has spent the last 90 years organizing in North Carolina. Ever wonder what a community organizer was? Well, wonder no longer. Just think, ninety years ago was the time when very dark things were happening in Europe. Ideas from those days don't look very good these days. And yet they are alive and well and operating in the open.


Why do Intellectuals Hate Profits, Business and the Free Market?

This is an old article but it still rings true. It begins like this:

"The intellectual has never felt kindly toward the market place: to him it has always been a place of vulgar men and of base motives. Whether this intellectual was an ancient Greek philosopher, who viewed economic life as an unpleasant necessity which should never be allowed to become obtrusive or dominant, or whether this intellectual is a modern man, who focuses his scorn on gadgets and Madison Avenue, the basic similarity of view has been pronounced."


The Religious War in which we find ourselves

Read it all the way through, watch the video, and react without scoffing at the premise that a billion people can conduct a war that their leaders want them to enter into.
