The TSA is Only Subjecting You to “Freedom Fondles”

This column by Debra Saunders is revealing as to her level of flag-foisting, plastic-patriotism cluelessness. Her column is titled, “Not TSA Pat-Down, But Freedom Fondles.” You see, the TSA is fondling – sexually assaulting – you in the name of freedom. Always, for these folks, we measure our level of freedom by the lack of freedom handed down by the elites who make the rules. Make sense? And she says the resisters, like Ron Paul, are “whiners.” What’s the matter Debra? Don’t want any critical thinking to get in the way of your need to get from here to there, unencumbered by time-consuming protest and dissent? Submitting is the easy route, isn’t it?

For these state-worshipping, conservative-right, pro-totalitarian tools, the massive and aggressive security state is a sign of freedom – the state is protecting folks from all the various bogeyman who could potentially “harm” us all. She says:

Even to prevent another attack like the thwarted Christmas day bombing, nobody wants to appear to be insensitive. Cable TV is ruining this country.

“Thwarted Christmas Day bombing?” Oh, you mean the dangerous, maniacal, and really scary little kid with powder in his underwear?

Saunders is far worse than any two-party advocate. She is a fucking whore for the fascist-oppressive regime, whether it be right or left.

    Good old Mencken comes to mind:
    “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins”

    Here is the most discouraging thing: the populace becomes more emotional each year. As this occurs, they become less willing, or able, to think critically. Gorging themselves on a constant diet of Dancing With The Idiots, American Dumdums, and other passive entertainment, their mental acuity erodes.

    Unfortunately, these knuckleheads vote. And in doing so, they screw up the lives of those around them – often unwittingly.

    I don’t mind attention whores whoring for attention. I am, however, discouraged that so many of the sheeple give them attention. I wonder, what might the nation be like if these people threw out their TVs, and adopted a new diet. I have a recipe for them:

    - 1/2 cup Hans-Hermann Hoppe
    - 1/2 cup Robert Murphy
    - 2 cups of Murray Rothbard
    - 3 cups Ludwig von Mises
    - a sprinkle of Fred Reed for extra zest

    And since we’re painting on a new canvas, let’s get rid of voting altogether. Dismantle the state. Otherwise, we stumble toward onward toward dictatorship.

    To Damon:

    Adding to your recipe just bit:

    - 2 cups of Camus’ “L’Etranger” (The Stranger),
    - 1 cup of Colin Wilson’s “Religion & the Rebel”,
    - a pint of Hayek (pick one! “Serfdom” comes to mind)
    - Nietzsche, for seasoning, in as large a dose as your system can handle

    I am amazed by how much of our liberties we (collectively) have given up.  The fourth amendment is pretty clear: 

    “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.”

    9/11 did not invalidate the Constitution but what it did show was how little D.C. follows the letter of law.  When I talk to people about TSA and our 4th amendment rights, they do not really know…sad.

    Saunders might as well have praised groping as the quintessence of constitutionalism, bequeathed to us by our Fondling Fathers.

    Is that what Debra Saunders tells rape victims, that they should stop whining? If a woman is sexually assaulted I’m sure Debra is the first on the scene to tell the victim she should stop whining. Rape, incest, sexual abuse…for heavens sake people, don’t you read Debra Saunders? Stop whining already!

    Saunders and the other Statist pundits can go right ahead and ask to be “fondled.” Maybe after she catches a STD from the glove of one of her benighted overseers, she’ll call that a patriotic dose of “freedom spirochete.” That sort of “logic” may be a symptom of tertiary state syphilis – so perhaps she’ll share the disease instead of receiving it from her masters.

    This is a perfect example of the sort of egregious doublespeak perpetrated by “authorized journalists.” It’s bullshit. Too bad so many people are willing to be force-fed bullshit.

    If you’ve gone to Canada from Michigan since 9/11/01, you know that customs on both sides of the border engages in the most horrific slow-downs at the most inopportune times. Like on July 4 when the roads are otherwise deserted, there might be a 4 hour backup to go over the Bluewater Bridge when it is clear that everyone being searched is a freakin’ tourist/vacationer. Near Detroit, there are two bridges, one tunnel and two small car ferries about 40 miles from town to get over the water to Canada. No one seems to know about the car ferries (thank goodness). I had a trip planned for 9/21/01 in Ontario with plans made before 9/11/01. At the time, the bridge and tunnel waits were like 20 hours. I checked out a ferry at rush hour on Friday, 9/14/01. There was no wait either way and nothing but a request for a birth certificate at customs. The trip on the 21st via ferry was also quick. The government is not serious that the purpose of these searches is to protect us from terrorists. The purpose of these long waits and searches is to turn the rabble into even more pathetic sheep than they already are. I took a movie of the ferry on 9/14/01 when the bridges and tunnel were backed up for miles:

    Bob–I’ve taken the ferries (both of them), and they are quick and easy.

    To Matthew T:

    Quick comment?

    9/11 did not by itself reduce our freedoms – the “Patriot Act” did, enacted shortly thereafter.

    Check out that act to find out how a person can lose their rights to Habeus Corpus (being jailed w/ no hope of EVER seeing a judge/court).

    Just a factoid for you – but enjoyed your post as well – nite,nite….

    Good question.  What I meant to say is that the US Govt. has used 9/11 to further erode our rights.  Just because there was a terrorist attack does not give them the right to suspend the 4th amendment which is just what they have done.  You are right about the PATRIOT act…it is horrible what the govt has done in the name of “protecting us.”  Bottom line – under the PATRIOT act, the govt. can drive up to your house in those black Chevy Suburbans, pull you out of your house, search your possessions and fly you out of the country to torture you…all without a warrant and without Habeus Corpus.  If this can be done, all bets are off!  Needless to say, I don’t bother to pledge the allegiance nor sing the anthem…we are not the “land of the free and the home of the brave” any longer.  We have entered a scary new era of govt. intrusion in our lives and the sheeple are all clueless…

    To Matthew T:

    Excellent call dude!@

    You are totally correct.

    However, a small bit of history to further amplify your comment –

    In 1798 (and our country was how old then???), the USA enacted 2 laws – called the “Sedition Acts” (you got jailed for speaking against your country – England wasn’t quite done with us yet, and was pissed off at the results of our revolution, they believed we were still a prime target for a takeover).

    Jefferson & Madison reacted swiftly w/ the so-called “States Nullification Acts”, that basically said that: “ANY BULL SHIT coming from the central (Federal) Government that VIOLATES the spirit of the Constitution WILL BE DEEMED NULL & VOID by the States”.

    They both kicked that stuff out making land-speed records in less than 1 year after the Sedition Acts were passed.

    That is why the website “10th Amendment Center” is one of my Fav sites/

    We are NOW absent this power push-back from the STATES these days (they are all broke trying to make their pension pay-outs!@!@!).

    And oh BTW. the Supreme Court in 1798 PASSED those damn Sedition Acts w/o a moments notice!!!

    Why do you think I have ranted so much about the dismissal of the Judicial Branch of our Federal Gov???@!!!

    The power strife is between the (Sovereign) states NOT between the branches of the Fed Gov!

    We need to get the POWER balance.

    I think the 10th Amendment web site has a good siting into this power balance discrepancy.

    I, for one, would like the Judicial Branch gone.

    Whenever you get to sit that court, and all it takes is a push from the Executive branch (the Pres), along with some winks and a pat on the behind from the Legislative branch – DUDE! we call that collusion!

    At least, us dumb idiots call it that! (Hey! I am first in line here!!!@!!@)

    And, to amplify your thoughts further, I give you the “Declaration of Independence” (a pretty RAD HARD document in its own right) – I am cherry-picking here: “— That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

    and the next fragment, here: “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. —

    And let me underline that: “IT IS THEIR RIGHT, IT IS THEIR DUTY, TO THROW OFF SUCH GOVERNMENT”

    So there ya got it fellas.

    Does this apply or NOT apply to our CURRENT situation?

    Have the abuses of the tyranny that we call our Government reached your threshold or NOT???!@?!?@!@?

    You be the judge! (the collective “all” – not you Matthew)

    I have said this so many times before, revolt is simpler than you might think – and it can be entirely passive – w/o bloodshed (at least any MORE of it!!!).

    We (all) simply need to become MORE aware, and then take action in an informed way (rather than TEA Party anger).

    Folks, we CAN do this!

    It is w/in our reach!

    Hey Matt – great post, man.

    Let me take this moment to apologize to everyone for my goofy late nite posts – I am usually spent by that time & ga-ga. But I am a goof ball as well as being a mystically-bent dude who is out of sorts w/ our society.

    After viewing Somerset Maugham’s film “The Razor’s Edge” on mysticism (ha-ha spelled it right this time!!!), I feel afirmed in my sense of always being “outside” society – as an alien in my own space & time.

    No Wonder! Is this society something you want to hang your hat on?

    Did you actually want to die in a rush for the new PS3s? Dude!@!@!@

    No wonder Buddha emphasized taking a position of aloofness or separatedness from society…

    Hey folks, a last bit of real wisdom – comes from my mystic training – when you realize that life is a game, then you have the power to separate yourself from the game and free yourself.

    After all, this is the life in heaven we are all living. Why not make it GRAND?????????

    You are right on!  Your excerpt from the Declaration:

    “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

    This is very radical indeed and ever notice that people quote the first part of the preamble but leave this one out?  I bet you most Americans are ignorant of these verses.  In fact, I bet you that if you announced these verses about removing our existing government, you would be arrested for inciting a rebellion.  So much for free speech huh?
