Roger Cohen via The Gray Lady in an opinion piece concerning the new TSA nudie scans and enhanced pat downs: I don’t doubt the patriotism of the Americans involved in keeping the country safe, nor do I discount the threat, but I am sure of this: The unfettered growth of the Department of Homeland Security […]

What Obama Needs

Peggy Noonan of The Wall Street Journal on Obama’s lack of reality based thinking when making decisions for everyday Americans: Mr. President, the rebellion isn’t shame-based, it’s John Wayne-based. Yes. Yes it is.

Just for the Proles

Unsurprisingly, many government officials, including congress and other bureaucrats don’t have to pass through TSA security checkpoints at airports and be subjected to the same undignified treatment of us potential terrorists. Cabinet secretaries, top congressional leaders and an exclusive group of senior U.S. officials are exempt from toughened new airport screening procedures when they fly […]

Rule #1 for Statists

When in doubt, blame libertarians. You know, the political party/philosophy which has no power or influence anywhere in America outside of a handful of local and state offices. The Nation: While this issue is certainly important—and offensive—to Americans, we are nonetheless skeptical about how and why this story turned into a national movement. In fact, […]

I Found Me an Expert

Hey Obama! I found me an expert on counterterrorism, and he said your expert is an incompetent piece of shit whose primary job is to seek rent from the government. Popular Mechaincs: Since 9/11, cryptology expert and security consultant Bruce Schneier has been one of the most pointed critics of the government’s anti-terrorism security programs. […]

Expert Opinion

Obama notes that the new TSA molestation of all flyers is necessary, and that they are the most effective means of protecting Americans, stating that it is the advice of “experts” which lead him to institute the new search policies. I wonder if those best means of identifying potential terrorists as stated by the “experts” […]

Can We Stop Pretending?

Can we stop pretending that our government gives a shit about the Bill of Rights? President Obama on the TSA’s new screening procedures: But at this point, TSA in consultation with counterterrorism experts have indicated to me that the procedures that they have been putting in place are the only ones right now that they […]

The IndyStar: A Connecticut man has been arrested after exchanging words and punching a TSA screener at a security checkpoint at Indianapolis International Airport.

You Tell It, Ron

Ron Paul in his introduction of HR 6416: The argument from the executive branch is that when you buy a ticket you have sacrificed your rights, and it’s the duty of the government to make us safe. That isn’t the case; you never have to sacrifice your rights. The duty of the government is to […]

Yes. And No.

The Weekly Standard on America’s backlash against the TSA: And yet I cannot help but wonder whether the problem is not public resistance to naked scanners, or a libertarian aversion to being frisked, but the cumulative effects of the TSA style of doing business. That uniformed goon at Dulles airport—“You will enter the proper line”—is […]

About National Opt-Out Day

The Atlantic on a great opt-out day strategy: By the way, it is the official position of Goldblog that everyday is opt-out day. There’s no need to wait until November 24th. But come November 24th, here’s an idea you might try to make the day extra-special. It’s a one-word idea: Kilts. Think about it — […]

Ron Paul in his response to the TSA’s new protocol of sexual assault and molestation: My legislation is simple. It establishes that airport security screeners are not immune from any US law regarding physical contact with another person, making images of another person, or causing physical harm through the use of radiation-emitting machinery on another […]

Downright Sexual Assault

More outright sexual assault by TSA screeners. PrisonPlanet: The TSA’s invasive new screening measures include officers literally putting their hands down people’s pants if they are wearing baggy clothing in a shocking new elevation of groping procedures that have stoked a nationwide revolt against privacy-busting airport security measures. If a security goon puts his hands […]

Why the fuck haven’t airports kicked TSA fucktards to the curb yet? The Washington Examiner: Did you know that the nation’s airports are not required to have Transportation Security Administration screeners checking passengers at security checkpoints? The 2001 law creating the TSA gave airports the right to opt out of the TSA program in favor […]

Comforting

It’s comforting to know that while the TSA is fondling people who don’t want to be ogled by their security thugs, and rifling through our belongings under the guise of “security”, they’re busy protecting the privacy and identity of one of their screeners who was caught falsely claiming to have found cocaine in people’s luggage […]
