The New ‘Biggest Lies’

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

The alleged “controversy” about AIT (who cares what it is supposed to stand for) at airports and, increasingly, evidently hidden in vans on Amerikan streets, fascinates me.  It’s not just that the Naked Body Scanners are an abomination from the pit of a police state hell-on-earth, however, it’s how a disgusting majority of the sheeple comprising the still-traveling public continue to submit supinely (well, standing with arms outstretched, anyway) to the abuse.

But there are encouraging signs.  A few vocal individuals, like former Express Jet airline pilot Michael Roberts, have been willing enough to say “No!” to such invasion, even at the cost of their job.  Many, many others have simply decided to avoid commercial air travel whenever possible — although the response of the Terror State Administration and those who fund them has simply been to “bring the show on the road.”

Others of us fight such Evil in additional ways.  Ridicule is such an alternative.  While questioning the Gestapo-inspired Thugs manning the turnstiles at an airport is guaranteed to result in missing a flight, and probable arrest — to do so in print or in person  will still probably just get someone put on a list, for now.

So, in the spirit of speaking the Truth “boldly”, as we all ought to, I offer the following observation:

Remember when the Number One “Biggest Lie” in America was, “I’m from The Government and I’m here to help you”?

Now there are two more:

“Naked Body Scans are good for you,”  and

“We don’t save the Kiddie Porn pictures…or your wife’s.”

Ridicule sometimes works when Right and Reason don’t.

Home again…

My apologies for the recent lack of activity here —

almost two weeks of travel, and a wonderful set of visits with family and friends, ended yesterday with a somewhat bumpy trip back into the Longmont airport after putting almost 2000 miles on the plane.  But the headwinds weren’t nearly as bad as forecast, so I’m thankful for what turned out to be a pretty good flight.

Between internet connection issues and more-or-less managing to keep up with events surrounding preparation for an out-of-town Pesach (Passover) and the regular  radio show and teachings, I had a couple of articles “not quite” ready for posting here, but not over the final hurdle.   I hope to remedy that shortly.
