From LRC
  • OMG, the North Koreans are going to get us! All over cable today, there was scaremongering about North Korea, a socialist poverty patch, Threatening The World!, but no one has asked why any disagreement between North and South Korea is any business of the US.
  • Ron Paul meets the TSA. This is one of the most well-mannered men I know, but after four very hard jabs to his genitals, he asked the blue-gloved TSA agent: “How can you live with yourself, feeling up strange men all day long?” “I love my job,” sneered the goon.
  • The TSA have had Sam Wolanyk arrested for two offenses: one, entering the Blue Shirt zone and refusing to engage in either of his two authoritarian choices: go through the naked x-ray photo machine, or be molested. Instead, he took all his clothes off, except his briefs, and told the assembled handlers that they could see he had nothing to hide, and they were free to go through his clothes and bag, but not his body. Two, he used his phone to record the encounter. Boom! He was frogmarched through the airport in his underwear to the waiting cops. And the cops also arrested a woman who used her cell phone to record the event. Federal employees, unlike the people, have the “expectation of privacy.” Of course, Sam’s real crime was making fun of the government.
  • The right to travel goes way back.
