She Touched My Pepe, Steve!

In an effort to bring a bit of levity to the TSA brouhaha I thought I'd say that the line "She touched my pepe, Steve!" from Multiplicity was one of the 1st things to cross my mind after the John Tyner incident.

Also, see this cartoon.

On a more serious note, I've now talked to two people who think that what the TSA is doing is OK because "OH NOES, TERRORISTS!" One of them actually said that 4th Amendment violations were ok because of national security and the damage that blowing up planes would do to the U.S. economy.


The kicker? These folks are both Obama supporters who absolutely detest President Bush. Sadly I think many of my fellow Americans enjoy their chains more than they love liberty.

Could we give them their own country? Please? I'd be willing to part with, say, Long Island, or the entire area of southern California...

I bet those Obama supporters detested the PATRIOT Act implemented under Bush; say 1000 to 1 odds?

I've got a weeks paycheck here.

Yet here is another measure designed to stop terrorists and they are against it.

Inconsistency is the hobgoblin of ultra liberal minds.

I believe this has nothing to do with terrorism but everything to do with getting people used to being "handled".

We do the same thing with the cows - we run them through the shoots for the heck of it just to get them used to it... Makes it easier when we load them up to head to the butchers...
