Those are all good ones, but tip of the iceberg IMHO. Hopefully the SS America fares better than the RMS Titanic!
Absolutely, I agree with You a hundred percent. The problem is People don't seem to realize this.
Many of these can easily be seen for what they are.... Your right though, tip of the ice berg.

What irritates me the most about the city I live in is how you can be arrested if you don't have any ID on you and are stopped. I mean if you are walking down the street and a cop just decides to stop you. If you don't have "suitable" ID you are taken to JAIL and cannot even bail yourself out until someone brings your ID downtown. If not then you have a lovely night of sleeping on the floor with all the unsavory types you would expect.
When did it get to the place that you have to prove who you are to walk to the corner store? It is all done in the guise of public safety.
I really do hate having to leave my bags at the door of stores and let those people know that if anything comes up missing they are responsible. Most of the time they don't even watch the rack where everyone piles their stuff up and I have known several people whose stuff was stolen off the rack to prevent theft.
We will wake up alright, when we are all locked in armed camps.

I have long hair, small waist, and large breasts and I;ve been pulled aside so that a female TSA employee can check for who knows what in my hair and then lift and squeeze my breasts, which I'd at least like to be paid for lol.
You didn't happen to notice all the other male guards leaning over drooling while she did that eh? Just wait till they do the full body X-Ray scans they are trying to get into airports.
"Ma'am, I'm going to need you to pass threw again. Uh huh .. ok .. pause there.. now back up.. forward again.. a little slower.. could you jog in place for me?"

That's the thing about Facism is that it sneaks up on you. They don't take all your rights at once, because Freedom can't be taken away, so instead they trick you into surrendering them one by one. Before long, you've handed over your Freedom before you realized what happened.
Well, sorry, checking the receipt on private property is the right of the owner I would say. Not shopping there again is your right. Here's a more practical ones.
