    CelticWhisper, oh, how I love the moniker "Bloghdad Bob"! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    He censors my comments, by the way. Only once has he allowed one of my comments to appear, and that was when I ended it by saying, "I wonder if this comment will be allowed to appear or will be censored like all the other ones I've posted."

    He is the quintessential PR shill. A corporate yes-man through and through.

    That's been his moniker in "that other place" for years. The TSA blog is known as Propaganda Village.

    Frankly, the original "Baghdad Bob" was a much classier operator.

    Oh, so there have been TWO Blogger Bobs?

    In a post at that group blog where I used to write, I called the TSA blog "a darkly hilarious repository of propaganda." Didn't go over well with my erstwhile-civil-liberties-loving-but-now-that-Obama's-in-office-can't-be-bothered-to-give-a-(expletive deleted) co-bloggers.

    Try writing "screen shot taken" at the end of your post. Then, if the post does not violate the blog's TOS and still doesn't get posted, send a complaint to the OIG, together with your screen shot. You should get action. ;)

    That's what I was doing on another forum to shut down a facsist mod who was having way too much fun censoring other people's posts to fit their own agenda.

    THIS is what we need to do, and do it often. The "Not Good Enough" will make the point clear that we're tired of their doublespeak, and that we're tired of them saying "Trust us, we know what's best."

    HORSEHOCKEY!! <$1 to Col. Potter>

    We pay your salaries. The Constitution says "We the People" not "We the Corporations" or "We the Government"

    Therefore, WE call the shots.

    The original Baghdad (not Blogdad) Bob was Saddam Hussein's usually hilarious spokesman at the time of the 2nd Gulf War: Baghdad Bob

    Methinks, after another brief run of censoring, that mod to whom you are referring has been once again reined in.

    I'd like to thank Celtic Whisper, emphatically, and encourage all of us to use his rhetorical device:

    Not good enough

    Yes. In our communication with TSA, DHS, Congress, White House, airlines, we have to tell them that this stock bureaucratic response is not good enough. We expect more accountability. What the TSA is doing and saying is not good enough. What DHS is encouraging is not good enough. What Congress is doing is not good enough. The form letter responses we've all gotten from them are not good enough. The leadership from the White House is not good enough. The airlines' failures to stand up for the rights of the passengers who compose their revenue stream are not good enough.

    No. Not. Good. Enough.

    Can anyone figure out what's going on with Boston Globe's comment section?? I'm registered, approved, blah blah blah. But there's no button for "post" or "comment now" or "reply" or "hit return" or whatever you wanna call it. There's no way for me to actually post what I've written. What am I missing?

    UPDATE: Sorry. Forget it. Must've been my screen. I enlarged the view to outrageous proportions and the "Submit" button appeared.

    This has bothered me for as long as the atrocities have been taking place. It's like saying "Yes, the TSA employees assaulted the mother and threatened her, but they followed SOP, so it's ok!" Total bullshi! That's a cowards way of dealing with the issues at hand. Pistole should get what Saddam got, and the rest of his lackeys, the fat smurfs included, should all, at a minimum be barred from any federal service ever again.

    It would help if this Facebook page were open to the public without registering. Many people (myself inclued) will not touch Facebook with a 10-foot pole due to their repeated privacy violations.

    Please take a look at the Acquit Yakuri Miyamae page for an example: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Acquit-Yukari-Mihamae/193771357344518

    I would like to link to it from http://www.AndreaAbbott.org but it's pointless if it's not open. You're blocking a large part of your potential audience including those who might find the page via search engines.

    Thanks for the update, Elizabeth. I'm already busy over there countering the TSA apologists, including the ever-reliable "vestevens."

    Added my own commentary to a particularly annoying post by Glenda - what a douche bag - oops did I just say that?
