Give us all your guns and please remain seated

Posted on


Not surprisingly, airline security is carrying on the great American and European tradition of punishing the masses for the misdeeds of the few.

Lines are stacked at airports as security officers check every zipper and pocket, and people may be told to remain seated for the last hour of international flights.

The rules are being stacked on top of rules. But rules reach a point of severely diminished returns at some point. Then they start to weigh down the system and create a general disrespect for authority.

And like  government gun grabs, only the good guys tend to obey the rules. My feeling is this: We know the system failed in this instance. Rectify the specific leaks in security, and go after the people that are trying to kill Americans. Don’t succumb to the pathologies of bureaucracy, bundling the system in gobs of red tape until it can’t move.

    He was on a list of possible terrorists, and committed the two biggest flag raisers before his flight. He paid with cash and did not check any luggage. He should not have been allowed on the flight.

    It is no wonder though. Here is Chriss Dodd undermining America again…

    …and Obama said this was an isolated incident. Oh really?

    Oh, and he is being charged with attempting to damage a plane?!?! How about hundreds of attempted murder or some terrorism charge? Th eterrorist in question could also be considered an enemy combatant since he was a part of al-Qaeda.

    Good thing the Dems are more worried about National security instead of ruining the health care system and the economy.

    These clowns are not on the ball and totally inviting new attacks. Good thing terrorists like us now that we have elected a president with a Muslim name. Phew!

    Ouch, the Brittish Telegraph has a rather scathing article on Obama.

    Even England thinks he is acting juvenile. It is nice that others are finally seeing his selfish and childish personality. Never accepting responsibility and always blaming someone else will make you look like a child every time.

    Janet Napolitano needs to go as director of Homeland Security. She has no qualifications for that job. She was a token given to Obama’s lesbian supporters. And to those who support horrible haircuts ala Janet Reno.

    It’s funny how in the Army, a unit commaander is considered responsible for every action of every soldier in his unit. And yet Obama never misses a chance to blame someone else for the world not being as nice a place as he thought it was.

    He will accept all praise and no blame. Typical Liberal
