TSA Rifles Through Bags, Conducts Pat Downs At Paul Ryan Event

For some time we have been warning that the TSA is systematically moving beyond the nation’s airports and conducting operations on the streets of America.

The latest example of this kind of activity occurred at an event organized by Mitt Romney’s GOP running mate Paul Ryan this past weekend in The Villages, Florida.

Agents have even been spotted roaming around at public events such as sports games and music concerts, and even at high school proms.

The TSA even moved beyond its own borders this summer as agents were dispatched to airports in London for the Olympic Games.

The TSA has also announced its intention to expand the VIPR program to include roadside inspections of commercial vehicles, setting up a network of internal checkpoints and rolling out security procedures already active in airports, bus terminals and subway stations to roads and highways across the United States.

Remember last year, when five Republican congressmen  introduced a Bill to outlaw criticism of the TSA?  This is not just a Democrat problem, it's an entire government that's out of control. 

Why Biden is the Best VP Evah!

The chief function of a Vice President is making the President look good and by that measure Joe Biden is one of the best vice presidents who ever lived.

Reactions continue after a Texas leader issued a public warning for what he calls a ‘civil war’ and possible invasion of United Nations troops if President Barack Obama is re-elected.

I'd call Judge Head prescient before I'd call him a crank.

The Streisand effect and a cold mountain-top



In Days of Old, When Knights were Bold, and Rubbers weren't invented—

It's manifestly evident that Greens have no interest in the science that clearly, and overwhelmingly, show that AGW (man caused climate change) is utter crap.  Yes, in days of yore all of them would have been left on a chilly mountain-top to die, by parents who instinctively recognized (they could actually smell it back then) that their new baby was a genetically flawed mutant who, allowed to survive, would corrupt the gene pool.  Some obviously cheated. Thanks to science, they get to live and multiply now.   Sigh.

Anyway, a little while ago Mark Steyn wrote this piece for NRO.

In the wake of Louis Freeh’s report on Penn State’s complicity in serial rape, Rand Simberg writes of Unhappy Valley’s other scandal:

I’m referring to another cover up and whitewash that occurred there two years ago, before we learned how rotten and corrupt the culture at the university was. But now that we know how bad it was, perhaps it’s time that we revisit the Michael Mann affair, particularly given how much we’ve also learned about his and others’ hockey-stick deceptions since. Mann could be said to be the Jerry Sandusky of climate science, except that instead of molesting children, he has molested and tortured data in the service of politicized science that could have dire economic consequences for the nation and planet

Much to everyone's amusement (anticipating the Streisand effect, don't you know), Mann threatened to sue Steyn.  All this led to Anthony Watt's must read column, Best Michael Mann headline evah. 

The  point being then, that if we must suffer this plague of climate charlatans and their client asshats, let's at least have fun with them.  I think that's from Alinsky.  Plus, it's ingrained human behavior to want someone to feel superior too, and here they serve me.
