What Makes TSA Different.

"Unlike ATF and other federal agencies with bad reputation, TSA is an equal-opportunity offender. They pick on the babies and they pick on retirees, they pick on pregnant women and on invalids in wheelchairs. They do so in plain view. They also seem to hire bottom of the barrel personnel, the kind of creatures who need charm lessons from skunks and who need affirmative action to be considered for hire in place of possums.

Their current efforts to offend almost every segment of the American people means they will be the test case. What will the American public do about them? This will be fun to watch with Thanksgiving and Christmas travel seasons coming up. Few people would want to drive across the country in winter to see family, so many will fly and get mistreated. What are the chances of TSA becoming the national bullseye for derision, legal and lobbying action and --- should all those fail -- direct retirement actions by concerned individuals? Nobody likes bullies or child molesters, especially those who abuse official capacity for the purpose."

Debate Is Taboo On The Great Centralizer, Lincoln

Lies and name-calling are preferred tactics of the Lincoln "scholars" (cultists)

I found out the hard way that Lincoln scholars (read, apologists for ever-increasing political and economic centralization) have no interest in debating any point of law, Constitution, or even history when it comes to the deeds of America’s original and greatest of presidential centralizers, the incomparable Abraham Lincoln. They prefer lies, name-calling, and the hyperbole of smear against anyone who challenges the Lincoln myth.

How To Stop Republican Leader Power Grab

"To all Tea Partiers, 9-12ers, libertarians, C4L’ ers, and patriots everywhere,

This past weekend, we had the pleasure of meeting in the Ronald Reagan Building at the expense of Tea Party Patriots. We heard a call for unity from the dean of Conservatism, former Attorney General Ed Meese, and now of the Heritage Foundation. We also heard from the Hon. Ernest Istook, also of the Heritage Foundation. Tea Party Patriots invited all newly elected congress people. About 30 showed. Some did not give the courtesy of a response and no one from Pennsylvania showed! All those who did show up were impressed and pleased at what we were doing.

The purpose of this letter is to outline what Cong. Istook and the Heritage Foundation recommends and what the entire group of 200 local coordinators unanimously adopted.

Congressman Istook told us how the “game” is played in DC. He showed us how power hungry leaders over the past few decades took power away from rank and file members. It wasn’t always this way. The power grab occurs with both Republican and Democrat leaders. That’s how Pelosi dictatorially disallowed amendments and debate on Obamacare and Cap and Tax.

Istook urged us to change all this. However, it must be done this week!

You see, each party adopts its own rules. Currently, both parties control everything two ways:

1. The speaker gets to appoint a majority of the steering committee which appoints all the chairmen and gets to decide who gets what secretaries and staff, parking spaces, office spaces…you get the picture.

2. All legislation must go to the rules committee. This is where they can pack in earmarks, prohibit amendments and even prohibit debate! The speaker and leadership make all the appointments.

Here is what we and Cong. Istook recommend.

1. Each party's steering committee—not party leaders—should select all committee members and chairpersons. This includes Rules, House Administration, select and joint committees, in addition to standing committees.

2. The members of the steering committee should be elected by the rank and file members. Party leaders should not have a majority of the votes nor indirect control of the votes. Party leaders should not be allowed to run or dominate the steering committee.

3. The speaker and all leadership positions and committee chairpersons should be subject to term limits.

4. There should be a limit on the size of committees, not to exceed 50 members.

We need you to call your newly elected and returning congress people, Republican first and then Democrat. You must do it NOW because they will adopt these rules Wednesday or Thursday.

If you have any questions or reservations, now is the time to tell us about it so that we can address your concerns. Remember: next week will be too late.

"At The Beginning Of The 20th Century, A British Citizen Could Carry Arms........

........and ordnance for personal protection. A century later, they are prohibited any means of self-defense at all. Current laws treat Englishmen as colonial subjects were once treated, without rights. What a pity! Even Russian subjects are permitted some, admittedly poor, means of self-protections...never thought I'd see what was once a relatively free country fall so low. Yet, reading Orwell's Coming Up for Air, we can spot the beginning of the decline even prior to 1914.

Unfortunately, some parts of the US (Washington DC, Hawaii, New Jersey, Chicago, Puerto Rico and a few others) are scarcely better. At least, in the US we have the option of avoiding such locations in favor of Montana, Tennessee and other places more respectful of personal rights.

I read several London and Kipling stories over the last week. That had the effect of highlighting the improvements and the declines in the various facets of the human condition in the last century. Overall, I'd take 2006 over 1906, but certain developments haven't been to our credit.

My buddy Montieth is keeping some of the British artifacts alive, but his Bren is only a ghost of a machine gun. As we speak, thousands of Stg44s, PPSH41s and other historic artifacts are being scrapped by the US Army in Iraq. We look down on book-burners and iconoclasts of the past centuries, but the irrational fetishism and the fear of the inanimate symbols is alive and well with many people and the proxy governments they vote in."
