"Fight to be Free" or, why does the TSA have its hand down my pants?

Anyone that has lived in America longer than six months has heard the catchphrase: "America has fought to be free", or "We are at war to remain free." This elicits feelings of pride and joy to any red blooded American. Heck, even our Commander in Thief utters the phrases during weak moments!

My dad is a Vietnam Veteran that suffered two battle wounds during his tour, my Great Uncle was shot out of the sky in his B-17, and two of my nephews fought in Iraq. They suffered the horrors of war first hand in order to protect America from aggressors, as well as preserve freedom. I can speak for my dad at the very least; his version of Freedom that he was fighting for did not involve his children or wife being felt up by TSA agents.

In history, tyrannical governments have subjugated their citizens in many ways. The very definition of Tyranny is as follows: "cruelty and injustice in the exercise of power or authority over other others." I don't know about you, but I think that fits the TSA quite well. Why are they doing this? It is for one reason only; to get America conditioned for intrusive behavior at the hands of its government. After all, once you have had the TSA stick its hands down your pants, monitoring your private phone conversations or Internet habits seems like a walk in the park.

Everyone knows that to keep America free, we would just have to profile middle eastern men that fit a few parameters. That would keep us safe. This is not about safety.

In order to preserve the freedom and dignity our men in uniform fought for, we must resist this intrusion. Speak out at the airport in line; call your politicians; and best of all, do not fly unless absolutely needed. One of the worst tyrants in history, Adolf Hitler, once said the following: "How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think." Lets make sure America's soft tyrants, Obama and Napalitano, are stopped in their tracks.

A Tail of Two Mutts - Roscoe vs. Obama

My Rottweiler understands the theory of protecting ones property. Between his cute, velvet ears and his pudgy face, there is a complex brain that through years of evolution understands the basic premise of self defense.

My Rott doesn't want to hurt anyone. He is like a big baby, who loves attention and treats. He does realize, however, that there are some bad people in the world that would not think twice about doing his family harm. Therefore, he has implemented a simple, yet effective protection plan that thus far has been very effective.

His first line of defense is a deep, loud bark. If someone he doesn't like comes too close to our yard, he barks and throws himself against the fence. His second line of defense, if you are stupid enough to get into our backyard, is a strong bite, sharp teeth, and the muscles to use them. Thankfully, his loud bark and size has been enough so far. If you happen to get in our backyard and survive Roscoe, his owner will be waiting with a large and menacing gun. A simple, yet effective security plan.

Unfortunately for America, Obama is not as smart as Roscoe. In attempt to denigrate and run down this once great nation, Obama announced today that he would not use nuclear weapons even if America was attacked first. Instead of being the big bad Rottweiler on the block, Obama again cowers in front of the world like a scared ferret. And once again, America's enemies are emboldened to try their dangerous shenanigans without fear of reprisal from the worst President in our history.

I was never one of those that though Obama was naive. I knew from day one he was out to destroy this great nation. What better way to punish America for its perceived sins than to weaken it to a mere shell of its once great self. A US consulate attacked in Pakistan; no response. Lob a nuke into the middle of New York; lets understand what we did to deserve this instead of striking back with great force.

Our nuclear program was once this great nations Rottweiler. We didn't want to use it, but by God, we would if we had to. Those days are gone, as long as Obama is in power. Our only hope now is that the next guy in charge can undo the serious damage already done.
