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

STILL On the List

I just tried to check in online with Frontier Airlines for my flight out to Louisville tomorrow. Despite the nice letter I received from the TSA back in March, I'm apparently still on their list of suspicious people, even though the FBI recently gave me a clean bill of health:
So now if I want to fight it, I have to go to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and appeal under 49 U.S.C. §46110.

In other words: "Go away. You're bothering me."

I don't have the time or (especially) the money to pursue that option, so here's the deal from now on - no matter what gas prices are, if my destination is 15 hours or less away, I'm driving. If it's vacation, I'll take TWO days to get there.

Mr. Jim Kennedy of the "Traveler Redress Inquiry Program" is kindly invited to lave my nether regions, neglecting not the 'taint, and that goes for the entire employment roster of the "A Security Theater" department of "Homeland Security."

I wonder if I should wear my Proud Member of the Triangle of Death t-shirt tomorrow, or my Achmed the Dead Terrorist one?
