Now that Osama Bin Laden is dead, can we fire the TSA and bring back (some) freedom in America?

I think this is a relevant question...


Bin Laden is dead, we've been told. What a relief! According to the official White House explanation of events, it was Bin Laden who masterminded the 9/11 airplane hijackings and commanded his minions to fly them into the World Trade Center buildings. Therefore, we were told, we needed to bring in a whole new layer of airport security across America to keep us all safe from the evil mind of Bin Laden. This, of course, gave rise to the TSA.

Now over 60,000 agents strong, the TSA is the agency that feels our junk while ordering us to throw away our bottled water. They're the ones that march us through those naked body scanners or order us to spread our legs while they feel our private parts with the backs of their hands. We're all repeatedly being backhanded by our own government agents, in other words.

Why America needs a boogeyman
Don't hold your breath on all this, of course. America needs Bin Laden, you see. Or someone like him. Because every great war needs a great boogeyman. And Osama Bin Laden, even though he has been reported dead at least nine times over the last decade, has served a much-needed role to keep people focused on a war effort that has brought America no peace, no security and no freedom.

Don't hold your breath on freedom


Uh, not so fast. You see, even though we were told that Osama Bin Laden was the "evil mastermind" behind the terror that threatened America, and even though the so-called "war on terror" was focused in large part on hunting down this one individual, President Obama now tells us that killing Bin Laden has made America more dangerous than ever before.

Huh? Wasn't killing Bin Laden supposed to make us safer? Sort of like killing Hitler and taking out the Nazi war machine?

We'll never be free again.

Think about all those kids out Sunday night chanting "USA, USA."

They're products of the "post 911 world." Theyve never known anything other than the Patriot Act, Gitmo and the TSA. They'll just go on to support all of this garbage for the rest of their lives.

A fish born in a bowl has never seen the ocean.

The rest of us will just get chopped up and canned like tuna while the pretty fish in the bowl gets all the love and attention.

The only thing that can save liberty at this point is burning the whole thing down and starting over.

By "we" do you mean the US?

If so, I'd say the freest we've ever been was from 1783 to 1794.

That was the brief window of time where we had no tyrant to rule over us.

Of course our freedoms are being taken away.

You can't wear shoes while going though security at the airport anymore can you?

How dare the government take away our freedom of wearing shoes through airport security!

Honestly, I travel a lot by plane and I have never had a problem. People complain about the pat downs, but to tell the truth, I get a more invasive pat down when I go through securtiy at Ozzfest every year. And yes, they pat down little children who go through the gates.

Next time you feel you have been "molested" by the tsa, go to a rock concert. Those securtiy guys will make you think tsa gave you a pat on the back.

Sadly I doubt it,I would expect tighter controls and security searches in the near future at least.
The security people are edgy right now,globally.

Hopefully its for nothing,but who knows whats happening behind the scenes right now?

Surely they have a agenda. What makes me wonder why wikileaks bring those documents about the al qaeda hidding a bomb in Europe. Hopefully its for nothing.

When 911 happened the people of The United States Of America gave up many of their freedoms by way of the Patriot Act under the guise that the government will protect you from terroists. The people will be unable to fire the TSA because it is a control mechanism entrenched in place by the government and we are told to further prevent terroism. ^Y^

I know Amari, just to make clear this thread (and the article above illustrate this very well) is about how ironic is this terror-war-laden-bush-obama-tsa thing.

These are the years from the end of the Revolutionary War to the year that Washington lead a bunch of federal troops up to Pennsylvania to stomp a bunch of farmers for not paying their tithing.

You had the face of free America playing revenue man. The liberty experiment was official killed that year.
