Once again, the TSA has been caught doing either illegal or highly questionable actions that call into question their ability to make even the soundest of decisions. IN JUST THE PAST FEW DAYS, they have doubled grouped a senator, continue to state that their machines are fine and don't cause cancer regardless of the mounting data that says otherwise, and keep groping small children even though they said years ago that that process would stop. It hasn't, it won't and eventually it's going to happen to you. Tell me you won't be pissed if your little girl starts getting groped from some fool who appears to be getting a cheap thrill from it.
Just a few days ago, the story broke about a four year old girl who was "detained" for hugging her grandmother in line. The TSA agent swears he saw her pass a gun to her grandmother. REALLY? Why hasn't this ass been canned for this obviously lie? Because they don't care about you, that's why. They are there to humiliate you and make you feel like the criminal they believe you are.
Now comes another great story about a seven year girl with Cerebral Palsy and leg braces being molested by the TSA. Her parents tried to explain that the girl is mentally challenged and not to be too rough with her. Guess which position they tried instead? If you guessed asshole, you would be correct. It would also figure to be JFK, one of the worst airports on Earth, who my father once described the international terminal as "a Bangladeshi bus terminal after a tsunami." Highly accurate as it was voted worst terminal in the country last year.As a result of the trauma caused by these fuckwads, the family missed their flights not to mention the lifelong damage this little girl may suffer. Yeah, sure am glad we're safe from terrorists dressed like crippled, mentally challenged, children.
Not to be outdone, the police recently arrested six former and current TSA agents at LAX for drug smuggling. Sixty pounds of coke and sixty pounds of pot were confiscated. Another statistic for the most arrested profession in the country. Arrests for TSA agents can now be found at almost every major airport in the US for the last five years. How many other organizations can make that same disclaimer? If Best Buy had rapists being arrested every other day in stores across the country, how long before they would be shut down? Yet the TSA continues, despite massive protest for this crap to stop.
With DHS now being used to stop all crime, they have gone nuts arresting counterfeit clothing operators across the country. They state that this crime affects corporations flatly telling people that this group is here to protect the elite, not stop terrorism. This is a dangerous precedent. If you don't believe me, maybe you should talk with a Holocaust survivor, as I have, and ask them how the Gestapo got their start. It's shockingly similar to the nonsense our government, Republican and Democrat both, are trying to accomplish. The DHS is becoming very dangerous and if the Supreme Court gets their way, may even have more power.
The Supreme Court heard arguments today on the very controversial law in Arizona that can best be described as the "show me your papers law." It gives police the power to stop anyone to check immigration status. What they aren't telling the average idiot that this is exactly the same law that Germany enacted to check on the status of illegal Jews within Germany and was quickly used to harass anyone the Nazi's had a problem with. As the Supreme Court also ruled you can be strip searched for any reason, this law should have profound problems for everyone.
First, while I agree illegal immigration is a huge problem that should have been fixed years ago. it is also not a good idea to give police the power to stop anyone just cause. This will lead to the implementation of a real police state that I am guessing most of my readers would not like one bit. How this would be accomplished is another problem as it would cost huge sums of money, money we don't have, to arrest, process and deport the millions of illegals here. There is a cheaper and easier way to stop immigration that every country on Earth uses, including Mexico, but not the US
If you don't have a work visa or social security card, you can't get a job. Anyone caught hiring people without the necessary paperwork will be fined according to the amount of money they make. Illegal hiring stops overnight. Try getting a job in Mexico or Canada without the proper paperwork. You can't. But here any idiot can hire anybody, especially large corporations who love the idea of slave labor, any no one ever does anything.
Besides, illegal immigration has all but stopped here as there are better jobs now in Mexico than this crappy country. Arizona is leading the charge of stupidity and this law is no better. I hope it gets shot done but as the idiot ultra right has infected every level of government, I do not have high hopes.
Pretty soon we'll all be goosestepping and heiling Hitler. The New Gestapo comes for us all. We should put an end to this before it is too late. Voting for anybody not Republican is a good start.
