I didn't think that making such a disclaimer, since there are some VERY thin-skinned people on discussion boards, like this one, lessened the point at all. The very fact that you attack me, without knowing whom you attack, casts suspicion on your
grasp (or lack thereof) of reality. Nothing in my posts would point to my being a "survivalist" and, truth be known, nothing could be further from the case. The point isn't just rocket motors, that's small change, the point, my Canadian brother, is by sitting back and saying "its only rocket motors, let's allow them to get away with this one", we become no more effective than the survivor I quoted. Remember, to forget history's lessons, dooms one to repeat them. I was not comparing the US Government to Nazi Germany - I was using the words of a Holocaust survivor about the price of inaction (in any situation
). The fact that you misunderstood that point, speaks volumes!
I am not Jewish, and feel that this world needs an enema - its FAR
too politically correct. If you call a spade a spade, someone will scream that you're being racist, since "spade" is a derogatory term to some people. (A short aside here to illustrate that point a little stronger, two black women are suing SWA, because a white F/A got on the PA at departure time and said "eenie, meenie, mineie, moe, pick a seat, we gotta go". They claim racial discrimination because that phrase is a racial slur. Get a life!
If it is considered to be an "evil ulterior motive" to cherish freedoms and the Bill of Rights, then I'm guilty as charged, be it for something as trivial as rocket motors, or being disgusted that the TSA
seems to use the 4th Amendment as a doormat. If that shows that I have "no understanding of political ideology at all" then believe what you wish about me.
Lastly, I have no ill will towards any group of individuals, be they Jewish, Arabic, Oriental, black, blue, green or yellow. It is not something I was raised to believe - that one group is superior to any other group. The fact that you twisted a legitimate argument into a racist diatribe, casts some questions on your
I'm not going to get into a character debate with you. If you feel that I'm some Jerry Springer trailer-trash survivalist skinhead nut who's bent on overthrowing the government, Jews and blacks, and then marry my cousin AND sister and have threesomes with the family watching, then go ahead and believe it! I don't care.
For those who actually understood the post (without needing flash cards and computer charts) take action and voice your displeasure with the TSA
over their policies.
