Score: Prisoners 1 Airline Passengers 0

Is it because the prisoners have better lawyers/representation than citizens of a free republic?  Is it because prisoners are faced daily with the grim reality that a willingness to fight is the only guarantor of self-preservation?  Or is it simply because America really has become a police state - plain and simple?

Wait - what am I talking about?  Consider (CLICK) this article regarding a recent lawsuit won by prisoners strip-searched:

"The Cook County Board today approved a $55.3 million settlement in a class-action civil lawsuit alleging that thousands of inmates at the county jail were improperly strip searched....


The attorneys representing the former jail inmates will be paid $15 million, Driscoll said. The rest will go to up to 400,000 inmates jailed between Jan. 30, 2004 and March 19, 2009."


Now consider this article describing the pat-down of a toddler:

Why was Mandy searched in the first place? She started crying when she was asked to put her teddy bear through the X-ray machine. This made it difficult for her to walk calmly through the metal detector and she set the machine off twice, which meant she "must be hand-searched."



Finally - and I ask you to remember the lawsuit mentioned above - won by the prisoners - look at the actions of the TSA regarding a man who recently refused their insane paranoia-based groping of the American citizenry:

"The Transportation Security Administration has opened an investigation targeting John Tyner, the Oceanside man who left Lindbergh Field under duress on Saturday morning after refusing to undertake a full body scan.
Tyner recorded the half-hour long encounter on his cell phone and later posted it to his personal blog, along with an extensive account of the incident. The blog went viral, attracting hundreds of thousands of readers and thousands of comments.
Michael J. Aguilar, chief of the TSA office in San Diego, called a news conference at the airport Monday afternoon to announce the probe. He said the investigation could lead to prosecution and civil penalties of up to $11,000."

You see, my fellow Americans.  You are being methodically, systematically, incrementally cowed to obey, obey obey!!!  To follow orders without question - abandoning your individualism, your self-respect - and your instinctive drive to protect yourself and your loved ones.  
America is at a crossroads.  America is a nation of the people, by the people, and for the people.  YOU are "the people."
We can no longer participate in a system that asks us to surrender our rights in order to protect our rights.  Not now, not ever.
Say NO to the police state.  The more voices the better.  Oh, and by the way:  they ARE PUTTING THEIR HANDS DOWN YOUR PANTS!!!

  3. Until the Sheeple start standing up for themselves... nothing is going to change.

    AND - my bet? Tinkers chance in hell anything will change. The Police State will roll over most (and destroy the rest), after all, Sheeple want to continue to be Sheeple... standing up for your freedom is too difficult to focus on and they are happy as long as they get their pablum reality t.v. ....

  5. It is hard to see, but the police state is dying by degrees. Only propaganda is glossing over the awakening. Opinions are slowly coming over, and as lie after lie is exposed, it becomes increasingly impossible for anyone born with a functioning brain to simply accept things as they are. But the Beast must first rear itself to full height, so that all the players can be brought to light. Make no mistake, they will destroy themselves. That is why they labor hard, for they know their time is short. We all just have the misfortune of living through this collapse.
