Random Thoughts On The News

Posted on November 27, 2010. Filed under: National | Tags: , , , , |

The government is seizing domain names in the name of Homeland Security. Homeland Security Seizes Domain Names Hmmm. That’s nice. But what about securing the border? Has the Department of Homeland Security not noticed the stream of people – some probably terrorists – streaming across the border? And what about the war that’s raging along the border and streaming over to our side?

Terrorism, is that what happened last night when a Somali-born citizen tried to blow up a Christmas tree lighting event in Portland, Oregon? Interesting. Granted, this kid did everything wrong and was caught. But, how many more are contemplating something similar? I guess TSA will have body scanners and frisking stations set up at these type events soon. Or, better yet, Christmas celebrations will be banned. For our safety, of course.

Sarah Palin was attacked by the mainstream media for a slip of the tongue in which she said “North” when she meant “South” when discussing the Korean artillery strike last week. Bless her heart. I feel sorry for Governor Palin, she can’t make a move without an attack. It also makes me not feel so bad about my blog stats. . . I’m not big enough to be attacked for every “oops” that appears here. I love her reply to the media, she included links to the more outstanding “oops” moments in President Obama’s history. See it here, its great!

And speaking of “oops” moments, we have all heard about the basketball accident our Boy-King suffered at the elbow of a friend. Twelve stitches! I’ll bet he has a fat lip, too.  I actually think this beats the stitch record of any of my children, and they played pretty rough.

Heck, Obama was injured almost as severely as some Black Friday shoppers yesterday. There were stabbings, stampedes, weapons, and fights.

I’m glad I stayed home.

Violation of Our Fourth Amendment Rights by TSA

Posted on November 18, 2010. Filed under: National | Tags: , , , , |

In my view, the full body scanners and “enhanced” pat-downs by the TSA are a direct violation on the Fourth Amendment:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” (US Constitution, Bill of Rights)

If this is not challenged and stopped, we will soon be subjected to these invasive searches when using any and all public transportation; entering state and federal buildings, and/or any other location government officials specify.

Once freedom at airports is "locked down," it’s inevitable that TSA will next target buses, trains and the Metro. After all, al Qaeda has attacked each of these modes of transportation in other parts of the world. Strict controls on internal travel is the hallmark of a police state. (Washington Times)

I intend to drive if I decide to travel across country rather than submit to this treatment by TSA. I suggest everyone else do the same.

Now is the time for our newly elected members of Congress to step up to the plate and add stopping this mistreatment of US citizens to the list of grievances to be addressed when they convene in January.

There are other ways to combat terrorism instead on treating our citizens like criminals and forcing us to live in a police state.
