Transportation Security Administration Chief John Pistole said the TSA has no plans to alter controversial screening practices, despite public outcry. Pistole said the most recent threat of explosives in computer equipment was discovered by intelligence not screening, which defeats his argument for the enhanced screening procedures, including the pat-downs. In addition, the underwear bomber was on a no-fly list and his father turned him in, yet he was still allowed on the plane.
So why is the government doing this? I understand why there are the new screening machines, because the powers that be, like Michael Chertoff are making money from them. What better way for your company to make money than to mandate it; i.e. make it a law. But why is our government causing angst among the people? I believe these new procedures were put in place to control the people; to keep the people on edge. The TSA should stand for Typical Statist Agenda or Total Submissive Activity.
One of Barack Hussein Obama’s Czar’s Cass Sunstein said, “Some Conservative Legal Thinkers like Justice Scalia and Justice Thomas Think that the Constitution means what it originally meant. That means we should understand the document by going into some kind of time machine and capturing the public understanding of the public that ratified the document a century or more than a century ago.” He also said, “Once we know that people are human and have some HOMER SIMPSON in them, then there is a lot that can be done to manipulate them.”
The Fourth Amendment states we are to be secure from unreasonable searches and seizures. The Government says they are doing this for our safety, however quoting Ben Franklin, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
Hillary Clinton said she would not like to go through the enhanced pat-down, but she is not subjected to them because of her status, after all she is a member of the ruling class. Janet Napolitano stated, they are listening, but a lot of the information on the pat-downs are inaccurate. The people have seen the pictures and heard the stories, so who are you to believe, Napolitano or your lying eyes?
Thomas Jefferson said, “Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.”
The answer for our safety is intelligence, i.e. PROFILING. Let’s focus on the bad guys. Otherwise what are next, body cavity searches? Jefferson also said, “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” There is a saying, how do you eat an elephant? Answer, one bite at a time i.e. incrementalism. How do you lose your freedom? You lose your freedom in increments, one small loss of freedom at a time. Stand up for your FREEDOM.
