Chris just set off TSA "alarm." Additional "screenings" required. Unreal. 10 Jun 12

I stopped flying after a flight last year. First of all, it was on American Express, which means we were packed in like sardines. Then my wife and I had to get a lecture from a woman because my wife’s hand lotion was more than the limited ounces allowed. Now, keep in mind the tube said one more ounces that are allowed but it was only half full. I guess that means you can’t carry an empty bottle if the maximan contents listed on the bottle is more than the TSA allows.
Second, I don’t need some dummy lectering me about flying rules. Just take the damned expensive hand lotion home with and let me get on the airplane.
About this time they started the x-ray scanning and that was the end of my flying days.
He was just the middle man in the klintoon-obama take over. Big Ears screwed up too much for TPB so the Bilderbergers are going for Mittens. I see they are pushing Daniels for V/P. Let's see how this plays out. Never forget TPB always sets the 2 prez nominees & the sheeple run like Pavlov's dogs to vote for the lesser of 2 evils.
I moved 1500 miles away to keep my job, and no longer fly due to this tsa nonsense.
I drive or take the train.
I see my better half maybe every two or three months.
Isn’t it strange that it appears that only whites get the fleece. Yep, ole whitie sits there & takes it while all minorities walk.
Homeland Security doesn’t have to give any reasons for putting folks on a no fly list or terrorist list, do they? What is to keep them from blacklisting minor conservative bloggers and working up to more substantial ones? We have alternative media but what about alternative transportation? Even the election of Romney as president might not help because he, like all Republican presidents, won’t do a thing about getting rid of an agency that already exists and won’t do a thing about the personnel in those agencies.
My first thought when homeland Security was first put in motion in Congress was, so how does function when Democrats are in power? All apparently good ideas come with that caveat.

Add the fact that he raised the threshold for poor people paying any income tax. That was brilliant.
You cannot credibly go back over a decade to the unprecedented chaos after the 911 attack and double guess George Bush on what he should have done.
He restructured our national security establishment based on the best advice of the times (too much by and to appease democrats unfortunately), to deter or deal with a follow -on attack, possibly a WMD attack, based on intelligence provided at that time
I wish that were true,l then we in AZ could blame NM. Unfortunately, we must claim her.
Last month, my 79-year-old cousin and I flew to California together. We both are overly-white with blue eyes, one with grey hair and one blonde. We’re both under 5’ tall and semi-disabled. BOTH of us supposedly set off alarms and were subjected to additional screening, including obscene patdowns and swabbing! Obviously, neither of us were terrorists or capable of doing anyone any harm. I have never seen any Arab-looking people put through these humiliations, especially women in hijabs or burkas! WHY? What is the point of any of this? My personal opinion is to get us used to being sheep, to “prepare” us for what’s coming. Maybe I’m crazy, but it sure isn’t for our security!
Last time I flew, the TSA was on a granny watch that day.
Every older woman was pulled out for extra screening.
They pulled a wheelchair bound woman out and gave her the search of her life. Older black woman.
The head of the team there was a very beligerant goon.
I stood there after clearing security and watched the foolishness, until I was told to move on or I would be arrested.
During all this, no muslims were looked at or received any level of harrassment that the rest of did.
This is on purpose.
Forgot to say, my cousin was also in a wheelchair! I was just biting my tongue the whole time. The agent who pulled me aside had the gall to say, “I’m here to HELP you!” I did spit out, “No, you’re not.” But after that, I kept my thoughts to myself.
Anyone trying to feel up my Wife and kids because some bureaucrat told them to will get a beat down.
You can bet on it.
The problem being, the TSA and DHS weren’t even good ideas under GOP leadership.
