Off-Topic: Is this truly the America you want to live in?

Read this man’s ordeal with the TSA and traveling.  Read and ask yourself, is this the AMERICA you want to live in?

Cause I sure as hell don’t…

And for those unfamiliar as to how easy it is to set off one of those detectors. I took a trip to San Diego with my mother and she set one of the bomb detectors off. The trigger? 

Possible TNT.  The culprit? She set her bag on some bird guano at the beach. 

I do not want to live in an America that terrorizes it’s populace. That listens to all our phone calls, reads all our mail, tracks all of our movements. Sorry, I’d rather have the terrorists back than this.  It is clear to me Al Quaeda won the war, and that is so sad….but they got America to change, to deprive its citizens of liberty, and to harm itself in the name of fear.

Interesting that the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) finally got their freedom of information request which basically showed that the “secret court” even felt the NSA’s actions were unconstitutional. And even when they put implementations in to lessen those concerns. That the judge felt their was a repeated habit of mis-representing (lying) about their activities.
