    In an odd sort of way, I think we're better off with those two charisma and judgement-impaired boobs. Their refusal to acknowledge the obvious plays well for our side. Obama is not going to appoint anyone better.

    If we can get a regime change, then sack those two morons.

    Regime change or not, sacked or not, whatever political appointees replace them will be just as bad, just as afraid of looking "soft on terror," just as fear-mongering, just as protective of corporate "security" industry profits. We are stuck. Unless more people start resisting, en masse, we're screwed. A solution will not come from the top. It has to come from us.

    No, it won't, I agree with that. I'm just sick of those two sucking and wasting "Our" money. I don't consider either of them worthy of getting paid with any tax money.

    Sad commentary on the state of journalism in the US/

    This quote from the NPC
    More than a decade after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, people are still bringing guns onto airplanes, John Pistole, administrator of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), told a Luncheon March 5.
    http://press.org/news-multimedia/news/people-still-bring-guns-planes-tsa’s-pistole-tells-npc

    Did he say "onto airplanes" or did the NPC misquote him?

    Shouldn't the guns have been caught in security or was he being honest for once and admitting that guns still make it aboard aircraft?

    And what did guns have to do with 9/11?

    Oh yeah, boxcutters are also finding their way onto planes. The major difference is that now they are not allowed, whereas on 9/11 they WERE allowed.

    WTMD, anyone? And bring those HHMD out of storage? Let's return to the tried and proven methods that work.

    we don't need en masse and we'll never get it anyway. In the Revolutionary war 33% were pro-Brit, 33% were pro-independence, and 33% just wanted to hang out in the taverne drinking beer.

    That was when beer was warm. The beer drinkers would probably be a larger group today.

    Thanks to computer technology, I can now oppose TSA while drinking beer at the tavern.

    Maybe he's referring to all the airline employees that bypass the checkpoint with firearms. :eek:

    Damn shame the National Press Club event wasn't today after Jon's video had made the news.

    I imagine that a crisis would have suddenly arisen that prevented Pissy from appearing. ;)

    Oh, god, yeah, I would've loved to have seen him squirm. But then these people don't squirm. They just repeat the same lies, like bots, over and over and over again. They are impenetrable.

    "That's why we have several layers of security, it's our layered approach, we have layers, layers upon layers," blah blah blah.

    Gah, the last time I heard that was about 2 years ago at MSP.

    I looked her square in the eye and said, "What, sweetheart? Are we baking a (expletive deleted) cake?"

    She looked totally deflated and defeated after that.
