Whack TSA, leash-holder with big stick
America, the time is come to exercise a check on federal power. Not by the ballot, but by the club. It is time to throw a national "blanket party" for federal agencies that make "molestation" of the Constitution in general -- and the fourth Amendment in particular -- their new Standard Operating Procedure. It is time for the "Big Stick."
What is security without liberty? In "keeping America safe" the federal government aggressively deprives we citizens of our personal freedoms and dignity. Cattle destined for slaughter are "kept safe" -- Are we cattle? Government policies notwithstanding, Americans are free individuals, endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights; however, "irradiation" and "molestation" are not on the list. A free people do not tolerate overt acts of tyranny, and our founders thought it better to sacrifice their lives rather than surrender freedom. We Americans have "walked softly" for too long. We have waxed complacent, apathetic and apologetic to our tyrants. "We the Abused" now act as a nation afflicted by the Stockholm syndrome--but it is time to end our victimization. It is time to take out the "big stick," and thump a bump on the stump of those who tread upon us.
This observation is not limited to federal TSA thugs who raise physical molestation to a "procedural art form."
But the arrogance and hostility that these agencies and their officers display against our protests of unwarranted violation is becoming the national norm -- and, worse, tyranny is becoming "accepted" by many Americans.
The result is that a hard indifference to constitutional protections and established forms of civility is spilling over into government at every level, from Governor to municipal dog catcher -- we are enabling our molesters.
Incontrovertible evidence proves the federal government's latest aggression is based not on the realities of war, but on a doctrine that despises reason: holding the American citizen a threat, while providing unlimited access, domestic comfort and constitutional protections to our enemies. That the principle cause for our misery -- the Muslim -- is excluded from the "assault and battery" now perpetrated against the American traveler -- from the infant to the elderly, from the healthy to the infirm and disabled, proves the object of federal power is not the preservation of American life and property, nor the defense of our nation. No. The "end game" in this expanding scope of intimidation is the elevation of the state, by the State and for the state. Liberty is being "molested" and systematically "stripped" of her essential garments. Our personal violation is but a symptom of the Progressive rape that has gone unabated for 100 years.
That our enemy is allowed to conduct their own "self screening" proves that those who govern by agency are void of any saving virtue, and thus must be immediately removed from their appointed office--or We the People will perish.
Tyranny is a monster that grows exponentially with appeasement. The "soft" tyranny of today will metastasize into the "hard" variety tomorrow. Like the iceberg that sank the "unsinkable" RMS Titanic, the deadly portion we do not see -- the stuff waiting its national "debut" -- lies just beneath the surface, deceivingly silent, but no less cold, hard and brutal in its capability to inflict devastating damage.
Apathy guarantees our collision with disaster, and the "rudder" of our ship of state -- that's you and me still appears too small to affect a desperately needed change in course. The recent election changed the crew --not the course. Time may tell differently, but radical action is ever more proving itself necessary now -- not after we hit the iceberg. Our "handlers" patiently wait to send the "unsinkable" USS Constitution to the bottom of the ocean's blackest depths; but if Columbia sinks beneath the waves, there will be no salvage operation capable of righting her.
Plan A: Our second greatest weapon is our wallets. To every person considering or having planned air travel during the Holidays -- cancel. This is a radical but required intervention. The ensuing firestorm will brand "impeachment" across the backside of every individual associated with these abominations. We will financially injure the air transportation industry, but it survived September 11, 2001 and the loss of revenue that followed in the wake of the national grounding--it will survive our boycott. Americans will thus send a more powerful message to Congress: rein in the tyrants, end the abuse from "Big Sister" Janet Napolitano and her cadre of TSA thugs or our "Big Stick" will grow. Plan B: Well, that involves our weapon of last resort the American citizen's "nuclear option" -- we are not there yet; but the possibility may lie just over the horizon if these tyrannical policies do not change PDQ.
