Meanwhile, at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston....



You all better just shut your damn mouths when at this airport or else! Your first amendment rights are not protected at airports and if you weren't aware of that then let this be an introduction to you. The authorities do not have a sense of humor so you better shut your damn mouth and fall in line.

www.infowars.com...

While traveling through George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Matt Miller heard a security announcement repeatedly aired on the airport intercom that left him disturbed.

“You are also reminded that any inappropriate remarks or jokes concerning security may result in your arrest,” the loudspeaker message states.

These new loudspeaker warnings remind us that the TSA continues to excel at indoctrinating Americans to be well-behaved prisoners via obedience training – reminding them that they can be disappeared if they dare speak out of turn, even in a humorous way.

This is a totally unlawful and illegitimate violation of the First Amendment and is obviously designed to intimidate travelers and stop them from complaining about aggressive grope downs which in some cases involve TSA workers touching travelers’ genitals.

The message is clear – grovel and enjoy your genitals being groped or face arrest.





For lolz, going to the TSA website will yield this banner,



Due to the lapse in federal funding, this website will not be actively managed. More info.

...The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness; only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites.
The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal.
We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power..."

George Orwell 1984 Page 233

Slowly, gradually, incrementally. The playbook is being followed, and instituted.

At George Bush airport no less! lol.
Not satisfied with an aircraft carrier and a library, he must have an airport too.
I don't get this criminal worship, I really don't.
You'd think the people of Texas would all know how neck deep both their yankee transplant sons have been in Anti-American legislation and actions designed to destroy the Republic.
How they have remained untouchable all these years is a mystery to me unless Poppy has tons of dirt on everyone.
I will never fly again due to not wishing to go through the humiliation process.

As a native Texan, I'm constantly astonished at the Texans slavish adherence to anything pretending to be conservative.

I guess they aren't students of history...or much of anything except football and the Bible.

I'm quite sure they haven't read this....

Check yo asshole please sir



We're yet to be given a good reason for not joking about security matters. It's not like Al Q'aeda ever walked through shouting about their plot so if someone else did it there might be confusion.

Presumably it's simply to cover their own ass holes.

Probably a week or two before we learn of them shooting a 5 year old kid for saying "bomb". He was actually going to say "bombastic", sadly never got the chance thanks to these modern day heroes.

I am beyond disgusted with how we just go along with our criminal enslavement. Can one day of inconvenience really be worth your freedoms? What the Hell is wrong with people? If I had heard that announcement, I would have forfeited my money and my trip. It would have been a small price to pay. And for everyone out there that says it is easier said then done, I just forfeited a plane trip a week ago and made the inconvenient choice of a road trip instead, and cancelled my holiday plane travel as well.

There was a time I "had" to make long road trips because I couldn't afford to travel by plane; my finances would not allow it. I have gone back to long road trips because I can't afford plane travel, my conscience won't allow it, and my self respect and freedom is too high a cost to pay.

This is beyond disgusting. I guess we gave up all our rights for security.

First 'they' told us, the terrorists doesn't like us because of our free lifestyle. What 'they' did to us is to take away the freedom.

Not sure if any of you boarded a plane in Middle East (Qatar, Abu Dhabi etc) airport recently. You don't have to remove belts nor shoes. You don't have to take out laptops nor any liquids. And there is no naked scanning machine. Nor any cavity search. Woman are covered from head to toe and pass thru bare minimum metal detector (like the good old days in America).

Seriously? Have you ever bothered to read the signs posted all over the airport? Since long before the TSA came along it has been a fine and possible arrest for joking about bombs, guns, hijackings, or other things at an airport.

Starting in 2009, if you make a bomb joke, it's an immediate arrest, but long before that you could be fined as much as $250,000, and up to 10 years in prison. Seriously, do you really think making a joke about a bomb at an airport is the best idea?

The war on terror is not being fought with government efforts toward terrorists directly. It is being fought using citizens. It was an accident this happened but they have known about it for a long time via tons of research on it, yet have not changed their efforts. When the threat level goes up, etc it has been shown that there is also an increase in mental health distress (PTSD symptoms, generalized anxiety, depression, substance abuse, etc). What is the most troubling though is that when mental health declines support for government increases.

Another reason we have been drafted - it isn't only exploited by the government but it also works to keep terrorism at bay.
Israel has a system in place where threats are reported so often it has become habituated into them (like a daily weather report). In Israel they have more attacks, while in the US we have had few in comparison. Taking their location out of the equation this is because terrorists goals continue to be met in the U. S.. They have citizens liberties being taken away, they have the government spending mass amount of money on the cause, and they know that psychological warfare has been picked up by the government. There isn't much of a motivation if your objectives have been met.

There are even some who work for these agencies, who have read the research that are questioning efforts. While airport security is an excellent idea no matter what - raises confidence; the psychological fear mongering needs to be taken out of the equation as it also coincides with government support, and therefore can be exploited. Also because it gives the terrorists what they want.

yes i read the signs. the word bomb, is not A bomb. the word gun, is not A gun. the word overkill is what it is. the USA is like a nation of scared little babies running from all and any real or imagined 'terror'. i almost feel sorry for it.

It doesn't matter. You really think that making jokes like that is appropriate at an airport? And that statute has been around for decades. It's not new, the announcement is, but the statute isn't. It's probably been around since the 1980s. Go to Israel and make a joke about a bomb at the airport and see where it gets you.

Making jokes about a bomb getting you in trouble is not new, as you've pointed out, but if this was just about a bomb jokes wouldn't the broadcast be a little more specific? WIth all the TSA scandals over the years, and counting, I digest this broadcast a being very vague and a catch all for the TSA. It's not like authorities & bureaucrats ever used vague language to enforce their own agenda's before...

Not really. Because there are a number of jokes and statements that would get you in trouble at the checkpoints. They would have to list each and every type in the announcement. Most people are smart enough to know that you don't make inappropriate jokes, but there's always the smartass in every crowd. We stopped a number of people over the years, and kept them another day waiting for a flight, because the airline yanked their boarding pass. No arrests, just people being stupid.

How bout a joke about filming my molestation for porn site or maybe asking if it was "good for them too". How bout that huh. Even better asking if its OK to speak before every response you give...you know to sarcastically mock the new announcement. I bet it wouldn't take more than a week before someone goes to jail for that one.

Eta: I seem to remember an item in the bill of rights stating I have the right to speak freely and to be able to express my views in any verbal manor I choose...including blatenly offensive ones...hence why the westborugh people can piss off everyone and still be protected. But I guess in the new Reich that acrticle I quote doesn't carry water anymore...I truly wonder if I should refer to our country as the United States of America or come up with a new name to represent our country not being the same country...least we won't be confused about what parts of the basically defunct constitution still apply (if any)

That's the beauty of perspective, we all see and interrept things differently. I've of the opinion the TSA can and will use this vague language to their advantage so we'll just have to wait and see if there will be any future news and or videos of people being arrested for making non threatening jokes while dealing with the TSA.

You are absolutely correct.

The statement makes it clear that they have the right to choose whether they like, dislike or are offended by what you say, and the right to punish you, just for the sake of punishing you. Get one that has had a bad day or pissed off at someone else and he/she will get their rocks off by tormenting an innocent traveler.

Everyone knows that you can't yell fire in a crowed theater. But if a traveler says "See something you like?" or "If any of those pics sell, I want 10% of the cut.", it may piss them off, but it is no grounds for harassment or arrest.
They have forgotten that we are the customers. Their job is to please us. It isn't our job to make them feel comfortable and happy. Since their job has ceased to be one of customer service and more of customer harassment then it is time for all of us to cease being customers. There is more than one way to get from point A to point B.

Sorry, but selling my freedoms and civil rights for the price of an airline ticket is way too high a price to pay. Disagree if you will, and I know that there are way too many, that feels it doesn't phase them, because they aren't smart asses, and they just get their ticket, get felt up, and their dose of radiation, and then fly to their destination, it doesn't phase them they don't care.

Problem is, once you start down that slippery slope there is no stopping until you hit rock bottom; if you survive.
