The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
H. L. Mencken
I left my throne a million miles away
I drink from your tit
I sing your blues every day
Now give me the strength
To split the world in two, yeah
I ate all the rest and now I’ve gotta eat you
The Obama Admin’s response to the growing criticism of TSA’s new security procedures: Double Down with a big Fuck You. If you buy an airline ticket and show up at the airport, you must submit and obey. Once you enter the airport security, you must subject yourself to the body scanners or the invasive search. If you decline to fly and try to leave, you are subject to possible arrest and a 11,000 fine. Further, in terms of Direct Action protests, it looks the TSA is enlisting the aid of local police departments to aid in the possible arrests.
This isn’t “proto” Police State stuff. This is a Police State. Note, I haven’t flown since the TSA was created and will not fly. At this point, if I had the money, I would seriously consider leaving this country(the only and last time I would fly within the US). No one should have to put up with this shit. And it’s only going to get worse. If you can’t see what permanent war, “War on Terror” leads to, you are fucking blind…
