Screw Political Correctness. What happened to common sense?

First of all? 
If you don't want your six year-old patted down by TSA?
 Drive. 
Just fucking drive and skip the bullshit. 
The TSA is not violating your civil rights. You agreed to the shit when you bought the ticket, so why are bitching about it now?
Although, I do have to ask who the hell makes these rules?
Was there a memo sent out at some point, telling TSA agents to pat down random kindergartners so the middle eastern passengers didn't feel singled out?
Seriously.
Why are we patting down six year-olds?
I have one.
They can't lie for shit.
If they had a bomb, they'd just tell everyone.
Especially the people you have told them not to tell.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio. 
The guy from Arizona... the one with the harsh illegal immigration stance...
"That's racial profiling..."
Yes. 
Yes it is.
You know why?
Because Canadians are not in the habit of hopping the border from Mexico into Arizona. 
So yes, it is racial profiling.
But to be fair, I guess, he should be pulling over white people that look suspiciously like Mexican illegals.
And of course, with all of the media bullshit surrounding the situation, the US Department of Justice has filed suit against the guy for, you know, enforcing a standing law.
If officers in his department have violated laws or civil rights?
Then of course they should be held accountable, as individuals. 
Because chances are they are just assholes and should have been weeded out in the psychological testing. 
And before you call me a racist? 
I married a Mexican.
Okay, he was born in Michigan and claims to be Spanish... but he's a Mexican.  

Also?
Stop fucking suing people. 
On the news, just now, a lawsuit has been filed against someone that sent a text to someone else, who tried to respond and crashed and died. 
Yes, really.
Hopefully, it will get thrown out. But who knows anymore.
McDonald's is responsible for our obesity.
Marlboro is responsible for our lung cancer.
Beretta is responsible for gun violence...
 Personal responsibility seems to have been abandoned along with common sense these days.

And can we all just agree that whole separation of State and Church is a good idea. But that, essentially, it doesn't mean that we should remove the word "God" from every freaking traditional place it is in? 
You know, like the whole Pledge of Allegiance thing? And the dollar bill, and the license plates and everything else while simultaneously petitioning to build Muslim prayer rooms in public schools.
I don't fucking get it.
Separation of Church and State?
Pretty much means that the State can not pass laws against establishing or practicing any religion.
So, in Krissy's interpretation?
The US cannot outlaw Muslims, Jews, Atheists, Agnostics, Pagans, Satanists, Catholics, Protestants, Amish people or anyone else from establishing and practicing their religions. It can not declare any religion to be the official religion of the country. 
There is nothing, at least in my interpretation, that states that in an effort to not offend any other religion we should all have to bend over backward and suck our own dicks. 
Not a single thing.
I am not particularly religious. Or at all really. I mostly only pray when I see a squad car in my rearview. So, it's not an offense to my religious views. It offends my sense of logic.

Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. 
I fucking hate you, you over-inflated, racist, ignorance-spewing piles of shit. 
White people, in general, are not the fucking problem.
 You, as individuals, are the problem.
 Even when ignorant racist white people are the problem? When these jack asses insert themselves into the situation, it becomes nothing more than a spectacle and I find it impossible to take seriously. 
Yeah, I'm an asshole like that.
Plus? 
Who cares if the black kid only had a water pistol?
What does it matter if the cop was white?
A black cop would have shot the kid just as quickly.
Should we expect our law enforcement officers to assume in every situation that the gun someone is pointing at them is a toy?
Again... with the common fucking sense.

And...that's all I have for today.

    1. I will. I can't help it. It's like a personality flaw or something.

  2. Agree with everything except the TSA. What they're doing is nothing buy pervy, "security theater" that's otherwise impotent when it comes to actually protecting the air travel system. El Al on the other hand, does keep its passengers safe without sexually assaulting them, but they simply profile the hell out of them before they even get to the terminal.

  3. Followed a link from another site and I'm starting to enjoy your rants :) Especially since they actually make sense.

  4. The TSA is not violating your civil rights. You agreed to the shit when you bought the ticket, so why are bitching about it now?

    Purchasing the ticket does mean that you are subject to, well, whatever the TSA decides is necessary that day (it'll probably be a reaction to something that's already happened, and it'll still be all show and no go). But, having agreed to the fisting you'll undoubtedly receive doesn't mean that your civil rights aren't being violated. An overwhelming majority of passengers willfully - and perhaps begrudgingly - accept it, because there's no other way they're gonna make that meeting/funeral/Bar Mitzvah on the opposite coast. That doesn't make it okay.

    Doesn't matter if the violation is legal (or consented to) or not; a wrong will never be righted if everyone silently submits.

    Submission is a very, very slippery slope.

    1. You make a damn good point. I generally try not to think that deeply, but I wholeheartedly agree.

    2. I say that as a guy with a fresh set of titanium parts installed on his spine, who's about to fly to Boston for work. Of course, I do have the choice to not go, but I shouldn't be forced to choose between my livelihood and getting fisted by Uncle Badtouch because some suit wants to do show and tell time for the cameras.

      Thanks for taking the time to respond. Rare thing to see that on the internets these days. I think you're supposed to tell me my AR sucks and talk shit about my mom.

      ;)

  5. Also came over from somewhere and am quite enjoying going thru your old posts.
    Very funny!
    As for TSA, don't take it out on the line officers, they're just doin what they're told.
    If you don't think kids can have stuff too then you should read about some of the smuggling techniques people use!
    I'm all for getting rid of the scanners but I think they should be moved to the border.

    p.s SpeakTweak, your AR sucks but your Mom was pretty good! JK!
