I think the government will just IGNORE Jessie's lawsuit, and no judge will pass it up to the Supreme Courts -- not that those fascists wouldn't
dismiss it -- but because, they don't want to bang on the cage we are all stuck in.
Have we gotten out of the illegal wars yet?
Have we let the people we've tortured and without charges go yet?
Has Extraordinary Rendition stopped?
Has anyone but the token "guy who ripped off the wrong people" (Bernie Maddoff) seen anything beyond a slap on the wrist?
Has justice occurred somewhere that involved one of the many thousands of billionaires -- or does it just apply to the average folks in this
How about some of those prosecutors get removed and maybe we can follow up on rigged voting machines?
The excuse, of course, is that you are getting on a "private" run plane, you have a CHOICE. Of course, if you are on business, and you choose to
fight for your Constitutional rights, the company you work for is not going to be happy having an employee on the No-Fly-List; therefore, it's kind
of an instant Black List to complain. Moreover -- the search and seizure laws ONLY apply to the government -- but then again, if I hired an outside
contractor at a school to bring in a priest and proselytize kids -- it would STILL be the government ex post facto endorsing a Religion. This is JUST
LIKE, getting caught building databases on everyone in the country - so you spin off the Total Information Awareness project into a private firm run
by Poindexter... it's a distinction without a difference. My company, can't go through my personal belongings -- but hey, let's not let anyone know
that the Constitution is merely an inconvenient suggestion.
But there you go; AT&T spies on you for the government, and TSA fondles you and treats you like a suspect -- but it's at the behest of the government
... but the government runs for the benefit of major multinational corporations -- so it's even worse. Some douche-bag wants to sell us billions of
dollars worth of scanners -- they pay into the old congressman's fund and out pops a NEED to have thousands of scanners.
What REALLY makes me angry -- is that I know that any Terrorist with some intelligence and financing, would have NO PROBLEM getting something on the
plane. The "Underwear Bomber" has some sophisticated explosives, but he thought he could light it in the bathroom -- when of course, 10 seconds of
training might cover the fact that it "needed an electric current." The Public and the TV Media didn't seem to get notified of the Congressional
Investigation that went nowhere -- it seems the CIA forced the State Department to put the bomber back on the plane.
So, you know, REAL Terrorists, and those "Convenient Terrorists" who have FBI handlers, can get on a plane. You and I will get thrown into prison if
we accidentally carry a knife in our hand bag -- of COURSE they know you aren't a terrorist, but how the Hell does anyone get promoted at the TSA
chasing bogey men who mostly don't exist unless there is some military appropriations bill or some pesky "Constitutional" right that needs
You set up an agency that's sole reason for existing is finding bad guys -- darn right it is GOING to find bad guys, and if you fit that profile with
a bit of nudging and willful ignorance -- tough luck.
>> Crap like this, MAKES people angry, and makes things LESS secure. If I were stuck in some totalitarian regime, that constantly made me live in fear
-- I certainly wouldn't have a desire to protect the status quo. How many, good, taxpaying patriotic citizens are going to give a crap, when the only
difference between us and the former USSR is an accent?
There is NO WAY to make this country more secure, except by the will of the people in it. The more we act like jerks in this world as a country - the
more ill will we build up. Our security is merely a stage play, to give more power to people who have no principles.
Would anyone here let Dick Cheney or someone else responsible for this "Homeland Security" babysit their kids? I'd probably feel safer with some
random person from State Prison -- at least there is a chance that some of them are only occasionally angry and not Psychopaths. That's how I felt
the whole time the "Patriot Act" was being endorsed, and I get sick to the stomach when anyone mentions "finishing what we started" in Afghanistan
-- as if they gave a rats ass about those people.
>> But other than that -- I'm happy that Jessie is putting up a fight. It's not the point that he is going to WIN anything -- but the point is that
he isn't too afraid to back down.
