The 3 AM Question

h/t Don Surber

Who’s at the podium? No one. (yet)

It’s 3am, do you know where your President is?

An excellent advertisement video at the link above.

Grounded

To paraphrase the FAA, this is no way to run a railroad.

About 4,000 FAA employees are now furloughed without pay, according to the FAA, as the Senate on Friday failed to approve a controversial House-passed extension of taxes that help fund the FAA.

Way to go, Senate. Guess you had much more important things on your mind.

Our Founding Constitution In Danger

This is not new news, but this article might have some new bits of information within.

For those that have watched Glenn Beck, the progressives are pushing to alter the Constitution to incorporate a Second Bill of Rights. These are not the unalienable, nature’s God given rights – but ones “determined” by people (notice I am not even saying ‘government’ at this point). This is dangerous beyond imagination. For rights determined by man, can be later taken away, by man. And that, rings the death knell.

It is vital they be named.

Cass Sunstein, Lisa Brown, Eric Holder – all (and likely far more) operate within the Soros-funded American Constitution Society. Ring a bell?

If progressives manage to bring this about, it will be the beginning of the end.

For they know not what they do.

Stand up and be counted. Never give up, never give in. Remember November 2012. Now, more than ever.

What A Drag

Maybe, with luck, he will stall out.

From The Voice In My Head.

Oh, and these jets the WH doesn’t want to talk about. At all.

TSA Treats Mentally Challenged As A Terrorist

Unbelievable.

Supposedly, these morons will get retrained.

The Rights of Man

Most excellent.

Orbitz Standing Tall

So much for (cough) Media Matters (does it really?) trying to coerce advertisers away from Fox News Channel.

Mediaite tells us what Orbitz told MM. Remember that name. They matter.

I’ll remember this when I make travel plans.

Another Touching Moment

Just makes me so glad I won’t be flying anywhere. At any time.

This is just getting to be so outrageous and stupid at the same time.

TSA Now Checking Baby’s Butts

UPDATE: Speechless

Now can we say this is an illegal, warrantless search against all forms of common sense in the U.S.A.??????

UPDATE: TSA defends this.

Yeah? How about – keep your filthy hands off my kids! They are too small for burqas and too small to hide anythng.

Air Forced

It seems that DHS/TSA no longer is ambivalent about private security for airports.

Yup. It’s all about controlling the folks. Er, it’s all about control, folks.

But on Friday, the TSA denied an application by Springfield-Branson Airport in Missouri to privatize its checkpoint workforce, and in a statement, Pistole indicated other applications likewise will be denied.

“I examined the contractor screening program and decided not to expand the program beyond the current 16 airports as I do not see any clear or substantial advantage to do so at this time,” Pistole said.

Yeah. He’s a pistol, all right. High caliber? Nah, not so much.
