Should those who oppose TSA excesses be 'prohibited persons' for gun ownership?Making a list and checking it twice, eh? Since I am sure that I am already on that list, make sure you put me in the proper column you Jack-Booted Thugs.

A Transportation Security Administration directive by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano claiming "full support of the President" classifies "any person who 'interferes' with TSA airport security screening procedure protocol and operations by actively objecting to the established screening process, 'including but not limited to the anticipated national opt-out day' as a 'domestic extremist.'"
That's according to Douglas Hagmann of the Northeast Intelligence Network, who reports that this information is from a classified memo and, because of that, it "cannot be posted or published" in full.
NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. - Antonia Riggs Miernik reluctantly rolls up her left pant leg, revealing a scar that runs down her knee. When Miernik was 27 years old, she was injured in a car crash, and "basically destroyed the knee." Now, she has a metal knee implant.2. Pissed on
One of the effects of the implant is that whenever the New Port Richey woman flies, she triggers the metal detectors at airport security. She says the normal procedure is that she is then subjected to a TSA pat down. She has experienced multiple pat downs since Sept. 11.
"I feel molested. I’d like to go take a shower with Lysol (afterwards)," Miernik said, describing the pat downs, which she said includes being "touched all over."
Miernik said the worst experience she had came when her 7-year-old granddaughter was at the airport with her. When her granddaughter saw the pat down, "She went 'Grandmama, they touched you on your special girl spots.'"
TSA pat-down leaves traveler covered in urine3. Stripped
'I was absolutely humiliated,' said bladder cancer survivor
A retired special education teacher on his way to a wedding in Orlando, Fla., said he was left humiliated, crying and covered with his own urine after an enhanced pat-down by TSA officers recently at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
"I was absolutely humiliated, I couldn't even speak," said Thomas D. "Tom" Sawyer, 61, of Lansing, Mich.
Passenger Chooses Strip-Down Over Pat-DownNow Granny, you earned your humiliation, as did "Tom" Sawyer (and you are fully undeserving of your nickname), and John Tyner, the man "who started it all" you are an idiot. Each and everyone of you, I will wager, have been fully aware and more than likely have been happy to bow and grovel up until now in regards to your liberty. It is not like they have not lied or pulled these stunts before.
When a San Diego man opted out of security screening using the Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) at Lindbergh Field Friday, he stripped down to his underwear in an attempt to avoid the pat-down procedures.
Samuel Wolanyk took the protest started Nov. 13 by Oceanside's John Tyner to a whole new level.
While Tyner videotaped his refusal to be patted down, telling the agent "If you touch my junk, I'll have you arrested," Wolanyk decided to give TSA a look at his body down to his Calvin Klein's.
Through a statement released by his attorney Sunday night, Wolanyk said "TSA needs to see that I'm not carrying any weapons, explosives, or other prohibited substances, I refuse to have images of my naked body viewed by perfect strangers, and having been felt up for the first time by TSA the week prior (I travel frequently) I was not willing to be molested again."
Against advice, TSA chief didn't warn public about pat-downsAnd, now the Muslim Kenyan is saying that because prosthetics have been discussed, it is OK:
By Tony Pugh | McClatchy Newspapers
WASHINGTON — Transportation Security Administration chief John Pistole said Monday that he disregarded internal advice and decided not tell the public in advance about aggressive new screening and pat-down procedures for airline passengers, fearing terrorists could try to exploit the information.
In an hour-long discussion with reporters, Pistole said media officials at the Department of Homeland Security had urged him to "get out ahead" of the potential controversy by formally announcing plans for enhanced body searches and the use of new X-ray and radio-wave imaging devices at 70 airports beginning in November.
But doing so would have provided a "roadmap or blueprint for terrorists" to avoid detection by using other airports where the new technology wasn't in place, Pistole said.
Rather than publicize the changes, Pistole said he made a "risk-based" decision to roll it out first and "try to educate the public after we did that."

TSA workers face verbal abuse from travelers
Union that represents airport screeners urges agency to protect employees
By Harriet Baskas
Airline passengers aren't the only ones complaining about the Transportation Security Administration’s new enhanced security procedures. Many TSA employees aren't too happy, either.
The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), the union that represents TSA workers, is urging the TSA to do more to protect its employees from abuse from airline passengers angry over the new security methods. The union reports that some members "have reported instances in which passengers have become angry, belligerent and even physical with TSOs (transportation security officers). In Indianapolis, for example, a TSO was punched by a passenger who didn't like the new screening process," the union said in a Nov. 17 statement posted on its website.

UPDATE: I’m getting a lot of emails asking if this is actually true and is this person actually someone I know. (1) Yes it is true — it is too absurd to be made up. (2) Yes, I know the person.
This might be a good time to remind everyone that approximately 233 people re-boarded that plane with assault rifles, pistols, and machine guns–but nothing that could have been used as a weapon.
The Morality of Killing in Self Defense: A Christian PerspectiveI have no such qualms as I was taught early on that the choice is irrevocable and my thoughts can be summed up in this shortened philosophical example starting at 09:10 and goes to 09:50.

Part 1 Introduction
The Inspiration for the first twenty years of my life, I believed not only that killing in self-defense was morally permissible but also that such defense was appropriate insofar as it was just. St. Augustine’s treatise On Free Choice of the Will, however, challenged my views on self-defense. In that work, Augustine and his interlocutor, Evodius, question “whether an attacking enemy or an ambushing murderer can be killed without any inordinate desire, for the sake of preserving one’s life, liberty, or chastity.” 1 After the two discuss the moral issues involved in the act of killing in self-defense, Evodius, though admitting that no human law condemns an individual for defending himself, asserts the following regarding attackers: I don’t blame the law that allows such people to be killed; but I can’t think of any way to defend those who do the killing. . . . I suspect that they are condemned by a more powerful, hidden law, if indeed there is nothing that is not governed by divine providence. How can they be free of sin in the eyes of the law, when they are defiled with human blood for the sake of things that ought to be held in contempt? 2 Although Evodius recognizes the practicality of a law permitting individuals to kill in self-defense, he argues that it is impossible to take such action without violating God’s law. Immediately, Evodius’ argument made me wonder whether or not I fully understood the act of killing in self-defense. The more time I spent considering the topic, the more strongly I felt that the morality of such action was much more complex than I had originally imagined. Although most everyone I knew held that it was permissible for individuals to kill in self-defense, I doubted that they had ever seriously considered the question. Consequently, I took it upon myself to delve deeper into the issue. The Project My investigation is directed at understanding the morality of killing in self-defense from a Christian perspective. I examined the works of numerous Christian authors and a broad range of perspectives, including those of St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Augustine, Stanley Hauerwas, Reinhold Niebuhr, Paul Ramsey, Leo Tolstoy, and John Howard Yoder. Although each of these authors affected the way I understood the morality of killing in self-defense, I limit the following discussion to three authors, Aquinas, Augustine, and Ramsey, whose works address the issue at hand with particular clarity.

I have a rendezvous with Death
At some disputed barricade,
When Spring comes back with rustling shade
And apple blossoms fill the air--
I have a rendezvous with Death
When Spring brings back blue days and fair.
It may be he shall take my hand,
And lead me into his dark land,
And close my eyes and quench my breath--
It may be I shall pass him still.
I have a rendezvous with Death
On some scarred slope of battered hill,
When Spring comes round again this year
And the first meadow flowers appear.
God knows 'twere better to be deep
Pillowed in silk and scented down,
Where Love throbs out in blissful sleep,
Pulse nigh to pulse, and breath to breath,
Where hushed awakenings are dear . . .
But I've a rendezvous with Death
At midnight in some flaming town,
When Spring trips north again this year;
And I to my pledged word am true,
I shall not fail that rendezvous.

Cardenas-Guillen, who went by the nickname “Tony Tormenta,” was killed in a battle with Mexican marines in Matamoros.
Residents of Ciudad Mier report that the gun battles have been non-stop.
It’s believed the fighting is taking place between Gulf Cartel and their former allies Los Zetas.

CIUDAD MIER, Tamps. — Hundreds of families have fled this Pueblo Magico amid reported death threats from drug cartel thugs.
About 300 people are seeking shelter in nearby Miguel Alemán, the nearest city to this town across the border from western Starr County.
Sources said after Cárdenas’ slaying Friday, members of Los Zetas, the drug cartel controlling Mier, were yelling in the streets that they were going to kill everybody who remained in the town, sparking the exodus from town.
“Initially it was 30 people, but then went up to 60, 100 and now we have 300 that came here,” Miguel Alemán Mayor Servando Lopez Moreno said in Spanish.
"If one were to visit, oh, say a dentist, you would see a dozen Federales armed with CEMTE type rifles, an APC and a machine gun nest."I received this in from a little bird down along the river just a bit ago and glad to hear tourism is thriving.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal campaign to stop the smuggling of high-powered guns to Mexico is too narrowly focused on small-time gun runners and not the larger organizations suspected of arming Mexico's increasingly violent drug cartels, the Justice Department's inspector general said Tuesday.
For the last six years, agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives working on Operation Gunrunner have focused most of their efforts on one- and two-person cases at the behest of supervisors who urge them to close cases quickly and move on, the report said.
"Agents we interviewed told us that after investigating the lower- ranking members of a firearms trafficking ring, cases often close and are referred for prosecution," the report said. "These agents stated that they believe this practice limited their ability to pursue higher level cases and resulted in cases being opened and closed quickly, with less regard to the significance or outcome of the cases."
More than 80 percent of the 1,015 cases sent to federal prosecutors between 2004 and 2009 had one or two defendants, the report said.
Army cadets banned from carrying rifles on Remembrance Day parade because it 'glamorises' weaponsBitterly disappointed? Show some spine and do not show otherwise just another creeping show of pantywaistism.

Army cadets have been left ‘bitterly disappointed’ after being banned from carrying rifles on a Remembrance Day parade - amid fears the weapons might 'upset' onlookers.
The young cadets have proudly marched with rifles for decades and around 100 had spent months fine-tuning the drill where they would showcase their skills.
But the cadets were left 'gutted' just days before the big event when military top brass cut the rifles from the display following complaints from members of the public.
Remember, remember the Fifth of November,I know of no reason either...
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
To blow up the King and Parli'ment.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England's overthrow;
By God's providence he was catch'd (or by God's mercy*)
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring. (Holla*)
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
And what should we do with him? Burn him!
Dallas, TX—Fresh off the historic conservative whipping of Democrats, Crapsalot Industries™, has developed new brands of toilet paper. These two brands of toilet paper are marketed specifically to conservatives, insuring that they will enjoy these products as weak-kneed RINOs have emphatically been rejected.I can think of at least three more faces they should add- that lying Lap Weasel Hannity's being first.
The new brands—Trent Lott and Lindsey Graham—will be sold in stores everywhere. In the past, only Democrats have been able to wipe their ass with Trent Lott and Lindsey Graham, but now, thanks to Crapsalot Industries™, you can too!
President of Marketing Mark Zealous indicates that this toilet paper was a huge success during its test phase. "This brand just took off," stated Zealous. "It was so successful that we’ve already sent cases to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Mark Levin, and now they’re wiping their ass with Trent Lott and Lindsey Graham on a daily basis. You’ll enjoy doing it as much as they do."
The Federal Reserve Is Holding a Conference On Jekyll Island To Celebrate 100 Years of Dominating AmericaI found this via Lew Rockwell this morning, but had already known that these scum would do such and are preparing much worse than the 97% destruction in the US Dollar that they have already done.
Economic Collapse Blog
The Federal Reserve is going back to Jekyll Island to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the infamous 1910 Jekyll Island meeting that spawned the draft legislation that would ultimately create the U.S. Federal Reserve. The title of this conference is "A Return to Jekyll Island: The Origins, History, and Future of the Federal Reserve," and it will be held on November 5th and 6th in the exact same building where the original 1910 meeting occurred. In November 1910, the original gathering at Jekyll Island included U.S. Senator Nelson W. Aldrich, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Department A.P. Andrews and many representatives from the upper crust of the U.S. banking establishment. That meeting was held in an environment of absolute and total secrecy. 100 years later, Federal Reserve bureaucrats will return to Jekyll Island once again to "celebrate" the history and the future of the Federal Reserve.
Sadly, most Americans have no idea how the Federal Reserve came into being. Forbes magazine founder Bertie Charles Forbes was perhaps the first writer to describe the secretive nature of the original gathering on Jekyll Island in a national publication....
Picture a party of the nation's greatest bankers stealing out of New York on a private railroad car under cover of darkness, stealthily riding hundred of miles South, embarking on a mysterious launch, sneaking onto an island deserted by all but a few servants, living there a full week under such rigid secrecy that the names of not one of them was once mentioned, lest the servants learn the identity and disclose to the world this strangest, most secret expedition in the history of American finance. I am not romancing; I am giving to the world, for the first time, the real story of how the famous Aldrich currency report, the foundation of our new currency system, was written... The utmost secrecy was enjoined upon all. The public must not glean a hint of what was to be done. Senator Aldrich notified each one to go quietly into a private car of which the railroad had received orders to draw up on an unfrequented platform. Off the party set. New York's ubiquitous reporters had been foiled... Nelson (Aldrich) had confided to Henry, Frank, Paul and Piatt that he was to keep them locked up at Jekyll Island, out of the rest of the world, until they had evolved and compiled a scientific currency system for the United States, the real birth of the present Federal Reserve System, the plan done on Jekyll Island in the conference with Paul, Frank and Henry... Warburg is the link that binds the Aldrich system and the present system together. He more than any one man has made the system possible as a working reality.
"Yes, but starting tomorrow, we're going to start searching your crotchal area" -- this is the word he used, "crotchal" -- and you're not going to like it."As I stated over six years ago when I founded the blog and domain:
"What am I not going to like?" I asked.
"We have to search up your thighs and between your legs until we meet resistance," he explained.
"Resistance?" I asked.
"Your testicles," he explained.
Several people have asked me why I chose the name Whose Paranoid, and for me, it was simple; nearly every facet of our lives, is documented, collated, marked, read and filed by so damnable many organizations, institutions, companies, and governments! Laws are so prolifigate, intrusive and overboard, that I am waiting for the one that will mandate the length and size of our genitalia. Therefore, quite simply and because of this, that when someone speaks of paranoia, it is not simply a lark, fantasy, or a psychosis, but a serious question that one must ask one’s self:WP
“Just WHOSE paranoid are you?”
Because GOA takes a somewhat different approach that can yield different performance assessments, tensions sometimes arise between its supporters and NRA's, along with often acrimonious, even bitter debate. And because this election has such potential to impact gun owners, I thought it important to learn not just about GOA and the man who is the driving force behind it, but to seek his assessment of some of the criticism being promoted in some quarters.WP
