As happy as I was to see the election results I am twice as happy to see people standing up to the TSA and their totally inappropriate security measures. It's ridiculous to suggest that these annoying, intrusive and offensive searches and pat-downs will stop the real terrorists. If anything it strains the system that should be looking out for the likely suspects, which of course are THOSE WHO CAN'T BE NAMED.
And Big Sis's article was equally laughable. It had the tenor and style belonging to some one running a elementary school, sending out a letter to unruly students that were angry about recess being cut short. Meanwhile those bastions of intellect and truth to power like the LA Times and the New York Times and advising us to "Shut up and be scanned".
How about NO, we won't shut up, and NO you can't grope or scan us.
How is it that suddenly the NYTs and LATs is suddenly concerned about terrorism and security? Right....
The TSA are NOT an actual police force. I can't imagine they have much training beyond the basic functions of their job. They should have no authority to do what they are doing at all. Period. A real peace officer should be called in IF AND WHEN there is probable cause and they can do the check. Professionally, one would hope.

I've been meaning to write about the new naked-scanners and the TSA pat down frenzy for several weeks however an extreme case of laziness has prevented from me from acting on this. I have to say I am more than pleased to see the objections grow to their current size and fury during the time I couldn't get around to writing about it.
I believe that following the election at the beginning of the month everyday Americans have realized that they can in fact take control of a situation. With this new found spirit of '76 it was inevitable that the TSA would run into trouble with the scanners and the ridiculous pat down procedure. Perhaps the Tea Partiers could alter the "Don't Tread On Me" flag to say "Don't Touch My Rattle" and use it as banner. Twisted Sisters' "We're not Gonna Take it" could be the anthem.
At what point do people just say "enough of this bullshit" and stand up? Let us see. I predict (using my amazing powers of prediction) that the TSA will be DOA in a few years. I also would be surprised to see the current shake down pat down would survive for Christmas. But then I'm an optimist!

For shame to those conservatives who hung their heads in defeat back in 2008 (or like that Green Football guy, jumped ship) because Obama won. If you truly believe that the lefts policies are doomed to fail, why despair? It was only a matter of time before the Dems screwed things up badly enough that normal folk would run the other direction.
And oh how they've run.
Well... I am sad to see that Boxer survived the night. I haven't seen if Reid has as well. Those two pompous twats would not be missed. But that aside it looks very good. I don't expect the Senate will be won but still with Congress in the bag, and the Senate at least close it will throw a wrench into the works of the socialist machine.
Now it's all a matter of voting fraud for the Dems.
