TSA Perverts

with one comment

Well it has really hit the fan now. After enduring eight years of liberal friends telling me how George W. Bush ‘shredded the Constitution’ we see that it’s the liberals who have really done it. Talk about unreasonable searches. Government sanctioned perverts are now either looking at our genitalia or groping the same.

So, if you try to fly, you might be subjected to a full body scan with an x-ray device that the government assures us is safe. Of course, the last time I had a medical x-ray they provided a lead shield for my genitalia. In this case, the government does no such thing since they are principally interested in viewing our genitalia.

But you can opt out. In which case, after the standard metal detectors (which have exactly the same capacity to detect illicit weaponry as the body scanners), one is subject to a ‘pat down.’ This pat down by all accounts will be more than sufficient to determine if a man is circumcised, if a woman is a virgin, and just what breast size she might have. They do everything but peek up one’s butt with a flashlight.

We are told by Janet Napolitano (has she undergone this procedure?) that this is necessary to keep us safe. Presumably because nearly a year ago a terrorist tried to blow up his underwear. Not that Napolitano nor any other liberal pinhead has ever noticed that the passengers of that aircraft were the first line of defense and that the TSA would have let this guy through, but it has been nearly a year. Are they really saying it took them a year to come up with this policy that is basically ineffective and manages to sexually harass airline passengers at the same time? I mean, Clarence Thomas was nearly kept off the supreme court on mere allegations of less than this. At this very moment there are wanted posters in my neighborhood for the arrest of a guy who has done less, and if you tried this with children as the TSA has done as a Catholic priest the lawsuit would run into millions.

This is the way liberals – read Barack Obama – keep us safe. By groping Americans. Oh, and CAIR, that wonderfully moderate muslim organization that would never consider discretion to be the better part of safety is contemplating suing to have muslim women excepted. I would weep if that weren’t so predictable. And our super-PC TSA perverts will no doubt jump through hoops to comply. I feel much safer flying El-Al, which I have done, than any domestic airline. I wonder why that is?

This absurd policy needs to go. The ridiculous attempt by liberals to defend us needs to be stopped by the grownups. Perhaps, with the Republican takeover of the house we’ll see some adult supervision. In the meantime, I urge you all to opt out of the body scanners (for health reasons if nothing else), and when they grab your junk, ask then either for their phone number of if they’ve read the constitution. What astonishes me is there is no outcry among liberals who were so concerned during the Bush years. They wept crocodile tears over the supposed loss of civil liberties for terrorists. They were outraged at the notion that the government might listen in on terrorist telephone conversations, and they were convinced that Bush would act unilaterally to trample their right to privacy. None of that ever happened, and yet in airports across the country, it is happening now courtesy of their man Obama.

Where is the liberal outrage?

A Glimmer Through the Doom

with one comment

Perhaps the doom may be averted yet. Though Mitch McConnell appears to have a tin ear on earmarks, he seems to otherwise get it. John Boehner is clearly on board with the starve the beast agenda. The democrats have their eyes firmly shut, fingers stuck firmly in the ears, and are going ya ya ya ya ya ya all the way home. Pelosi remains unchided. Perhaps she is unchidable. Those are better signs than were present on election night.

Also, the news that the republicans did fifty percent better in state houses than in 1994 suggests a bubbling up effect which can be cemented in 2012.

Now the House has to get on with the job of defunding the Obama monstrosity, and pushing lower taxes, lower regulation, and smaller government. They won’t be able to get through the democrats in the Senate (probably) and definitely not past the president, staking out the field of battle for 2012. The democrats are always talking about ‘fighting’ for this or that (except actual military fighting). If the republicans do this right, the democrats will be fighting on losing ground for the next two years.

We’re Done For

with one comment

The greatest threat to the Republic since the Civil War, the most un-American President ever, and this is the best we can do.

I know, the opposition took the house. More senate seats changed party than the average. Whoopdeedoo.

A runaway liberal government which fundamentally altered the face of government, spent in one year what Bush spent in four, nationalized the auto industry, the financial services industry, healthcare, and prepared for more. (I know, the nationalization was not total, but it was enough to gain control.) An administration that changed the ground rules, and curtailed gun ownership.

All of this was expected. Now we’ve had a referendum on this administration’s overreach. Alas, it wasn’t enough. The nation has voted to return the House of Representatives to the Republicans as well as many governor’s mansions. Still the senate remains in the hands of the Democrats. In a year which voter anger surpassed that of 1994, that’s the best the Republicans could do,

It dooms us. Democrats still control too many of the levers of power, and they will continue to use them to their own benefit. The Republicans in power will still say ‘huh?’ and not know what is happening.

The voters reacted on the house level, but failed to realize that the cancer they despised ran from top to bottom. The Democrats will interpret this as anything but a repudiation of their policies. God help us all.

No Meg

I’m listening to Meg Whitman’s gracious concession speech, and her belief that Californians deserve the best.


Californians deserve what they’ve voted for – crap.

They’ve voted for crap and crap they shall get.

Speaking of Nuts …

California has elected Jerry Brown governor … again.

Not to mention it appears Boxer will retain her senate seat.

It shall be fascinating to see what happens to CA when it becomes the first state to bankrupt itself on the liberal shoals. Astounding to watch the largest state in the US commit economic suicide.

I really have to ask what will it take for our country to wake the flock up to liberal idiocy?

While We’re At It

Delaware is nuts.

They rejected a candidate who once dated a witch for a candidate who referred to himself as a “bearded Marxist.”

Come on Delaware – are you really that stupid? No witch but a communist? It appears so.
