    Apparently the TSA knows something the rest of the world doesn't, namely that Rand Paul is a terrorist suspect.

    I really wonder sometimes what planet you live on.

    So what's your take? That he was a terrorist suspect or that he wasn't?

    If he wasn't, why the pat down?

    Or do they just fool with your body because they can?

    It has seemingly not occurred to you that there might be a better way.

    I'm probably never going to say these words again, but good for Rand Paul.

    No one in this country is above the law. Being a Congress critter doesn't give someone the authority to throw his clout around and exempt himself from a lawful procedure. The guy was a jerk. And continues to be a jerk. I just heard an interview with him on the radio where he said something like this:

    They should have let me go back through the scanner. Wouldn't it be nice if someone like Wolf Blitzer came through; and someone actually recognizedhim and said, "Hey, I know he's not a terrorist. Let him through"
    How absolutely ridiculous.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Lawfully, Rosa Parks was supposed to sit in the back of the bus.

    Then let Rosa Parks refuse to comply with the TSA. Congressmen are not above the law and, in fact, should be held to the highest standard when it comes to obeying them.

    I don't know that he ever claimed he was. He was challenging the law. He accepted the repercussions.

    2. Assumption that armed citizens are utter idiots who'd spray bullets around a crowded plane at random? No evidence that this assertion is correct. Existing stats indicate that lawfully armed citizens have an extremely low rate of arrest, or revokation of permit, or shooting the wrong person.
    Where did I say that 'armed citizens are utter idiots who'd spray bullets around a crowded plane at random'? If you address what I actually said, maybe we can talk.

    Exactly. Terrorism has never been a significant threat to my life in the first place. I lived 24 years just fine without TSA, with TSA there has been no change other than aggressive government force against our rights and liberties.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
