Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

I Speak Bureaucratese...

I just got a letter from the Transportation Security Administration (or "A Security Theater") about my status as a person of interest who cannot print out a boarding pass from home or work. Here's the key graph of the letter I received from a Mr. Jim Kennedy of the DHS Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (TRIP) [and my, aren't they clever with the acronyms!]:
In response to your request, we conducted a review of any applicable records in consultation with other Federal agencies, as appropriate.
That's good. Wouldn't want any inappropriate reviews.
Where it was determined that a correction to records was warranted, these records were modified to address any delay or denial of boarding that you may have experienced as a result of the watch list screening process.
And this means exactly bupkis.

I won't know if my status has changed until the next time I try to print a boarding pass out at home. That should be in May when I fly to Louisville for the 2nd Amendment Blogger Bash and NRA meeting.

Well, we'll see.
