Bill of Rights: Own a copy of the Bill of Rights, "Security Edition" printed on metal! Tougher than paper, Security Edition is: the 1st 10 amendments of the Constitution printed on a metal plate fitting easily in your wallet. Keep your Security Edition handy. The Bill of Rights is yours!
One of the problems with any new government agency is the question “How are we going to pay for this?”. It’s not just salaries and infrastructure: it’s pensions, attorneys (read more about the TSA regarding the need for attorneys ) and all that other chewy goodness that goes along with starting a new business. Which is, ostensibly, what a new government agency is… with infinite funding, it all but does away with that pesky “competition”.
He has modestly removed the six zeroes from the total views. Not only does he say very nice things about me and acts like he has ever seen Hollywood Palms, but he pimps the Bill of Rights – Security Edition.
Of course, there’s one presidential candidate who wants to dismantle the TSA. He also wants to stop the United States campaign of worldwide destruction, but I’ve been told that a vote for him is childish. Idealism is so 2008 and shouldn’t be applied to actual issues.
I’m not convinced that, unless one is Betty White, an online petition does anyone any good except for feeling like they’ve done something. Which is kinda/sorta the reality of the Bill of Rights – Security Edition. It feels like you’re making a statement, but you’re only preaching to your very own choir of one.
Those childish and unrealistic folks over at Campaign for Liberty have begun a petition to support a bill to END THE TSA.
On Friday, at the request of the TSA, I was removed from the witness list. The excuse was that I am involved in a lawsuit against the TSA, trying to get them to suspend their full-body scanner program. But it’s pretty clear that the TSA is afraid of public testimony on the topic, and especially of being challenged in front of Congress. They want to control the story, and it’s easier for them to do that if I’m not sitting next to them pointing out all the holes in their position. Unfortunately, the committee went along with them.
The title of the hearing: TSA Oversight Part III: Effective Security or Security Theater?
“The right to travel enables the free exercise of the other rights we most cherish. We should not have to check our constitutional freedoms at the curb simply because we decide to leave the house. Sadly, freedom of movement has been one of the most disparaged rights throughout human history, and our country is no exception. If we are ever to be truly free, then we must possess an absolute, uninhibited right to travel throughout America and the world free from interference by government.” – Judge Andrew Napolitano
The TSA is a worthless and pointless bit of theater sponsored by the U.S. Government. Government theater is the worst kind of theater.
We try to stay out of the good vs. bad president argument… we like to think that we haven’t had a good one since… Adams.
But come on now…
If George Bush had done this people would have had kittens.
Don’t you think we ought to be getting rid of an administration that thinks it can do anything it wants to its citizens?
From the article:
The government is arguing that people do not have a right to privacy while traveling on public roads. Police are allowed to physically follow people and even dig through their trash without a warrant, and the Obama administration says that the GPS technology amounts to the same surveillance method.
