I came across your site while searching for blogposts about TSA groping and wanted to reach out see if you think your readership would be interested in taking a look at an infographic my team and I built which focuses on how faulty the TSA has become and a waste of government spending. -Tony Shin

    Very convincing, and well-put together!!

    Actually kind of pretty.

    Someone should paint murals around, or even IN airports citing “freedom of expression.”

    Yup, the TSA is out of control.

    @ m:

    Fortunately, they didn’t make the Underwear Bomber uncomfortable or subject him to any kind of humiliation. Because as a Muslim, he has to be treated special. Because Islam is a Religion of Peace™ and Muslims would never be involved in terrorism. Unlike Grannies and toddlers…

    My first that wasn’t on a car lot!!

    Carry on…

    @ Bumr50:

    I’ve seen one on the road in the past year, but that’s it. OTOH, the Chrysler dealer just up the road had two Fiat 500s sitting out front, decorated with balloons. Black balloons. How appropriate is that?

    Somebody on the sales staff urgently needs to be fired…

    Feel good story of the day.

    As promised… I just walked into a local pub (PUB 25, Newtown, CT) and asked to speak with the Owner/Manager. I asked if I could leave a cold one on the bar for Michael all day . I showed him the “Reserved” sign I made and explained I wanted to leave him sufficient funds to buy a random person a Guinness every hour today, and that when the surprised patron asks him “Who is this from?” he should reply: “It’s from LT Michael P. Murphy.” and point to the reserved sign. The Owner/Manager was so in tune with this small gesture, he refused my money, introduced me to two men working in the PUB who just returned home from Afghanistan and Iraq with the ASSURANCE that my request on Michael’s behalf would be honored. God Bless America!

    @ pat:

    We should be able to vote FOR a “contested convention,” via a NONE OF THE ABOVE button during the primaries.

    Of course, for that to happen there would have to BE primaries, not caucuses (IMO strange rituals) in all states.


  21. 22 | March 23, 2012 1:41 pm

    Damn, slow day. Where is everyone? 8O


  22. 23 | March 23, 2012 1:45 pm

    @ Bumr50:
    I’d like to see our conventions moved up so we get the process over early in the year and have all our votes matter. I don’t like New Hampshire and Ohio determining who moves on and who gets out and the other early states determining the candidate but dragging it out the way we are this year has been a disaster. How about we all vote on April 1st?


  23. 24 | March 23, 2012 1:48 pm

    Oh, and back on topic, TSA has got to be paired down and profiling done, not racial profiling but the type Israel does. All the fancy machines, pat downs, luggage checks are easily defeated and should be stopped. I think a few explosive dogs could do the job better.

    But they did confiscate my Crest toothpaste at DIA last December, for being in too large a tube, so at least they have their priorities in the right place. Guns, schmuns. Where’s your toothepaste, pal?

    @ Mike C.:

    They moved those two Fiat 500s back up on the lot and took off the black balloons. Somebody must have bought a clue… They come in some sickly colors reminiscent of VW Beetles back in the 60s.

    Illegal activities violating federal election and telecommunications laws continue. We don’t know by who because apparently authorities don’t want to investigate. What do you guys think, are these maybe libs?

    If the GOP had done this, the libs would be hollering, and rightfully so, demanding an investigation, if this is indeed illegal.

    The problem is the pussies running the GOP. They have no balls.

    Have no balls, hell I’m pretty sure they sold their balls to the Marxists for the empty promise that once the Marxist revolution takes place they won’t be executed along with the 25 million Americans Bill Ayres claims will be necessary to execute to ensure America accepts Marxism.

  30. 31 | March 23, 2012 2:48 pm

    @ doriangrey:

    It is worse than that. They sold their balls to the Marxists for the promise that they’ll still get invited to all the Cool Kids parties once the Marxists have finished raping the nation. The Republicans haven’t been much more than token opposition my entire life. Reagan was the only exception, and he had to deal with a Democrat congress. The Republicans would be winning if they would take the gloves off and really be Republicans, but then they wouldn’t get invited to the parties. We see which they choose as a matter of course.

    Which begs the question, why don’t the Republicans have the balls to throw their own “Cool Kid’s” parties.

    “The Cool Kids,” by definition, are the ones that don’t want you in their clubhouse, at their parties, etc. The Republicans, thus, will always be yearning to be down with the Cool Kids and never manage to make it—as long as they persist in thinking that watching a naked transgender bath his/her posterior in the punchbowl is the epitome of cool.


  33. 34 | March 23, 2012 2:59 pm

    @ doriangrey:

    Oh, the “Cool Kids” (i.e. the media, Hollyweird, and so forth) despise the Republicans. Why they care what these freaks actually think is the question. The Republicans need to write off the Liberal vote and go for the rest of the voters. They can and do win when they do that. Oh, not everywhere, of course, but in enough places. McCain didn’t lose because he wasn’t moderate enough. He lost because he didn’t really run. The Republicans (by which I mean the Establishment Republicans) care more what George Clooney thinks about them than they do what the average American thinks. They would rather have the trappings of power than the responsibility of actually wielding power. They are content to be the weak-kneed opposition most of the time.
