You must be paying for the editorial content on Jerusalem Post's website, because it's been a long time since I've seen anything on there that could be called dissent. I used to check their site every week or so. Now I rarely even bother. You know they'll just take the government's position 9 times out of 10.They? Read Haaretz, and you'll see there is a great deal of people who realize just that. There's even the occational article in Jerusalem Post that exhibits such insight.
Yeah, they wipe their ass with the fourth, which seems to explicitly prohibit that sort of thing and then cite a few other amendments as justification. I think those arguing against the TSA make some great points and I'd love to see this go the Supreme Court. But then some idiot has to and say something like this ...Oh, that's just rich. Suddenly, the TSA cares about the constitution. Right. Never mind that the entirety of their existence is based on using it as their toilet paper.
That was the Civil War jackass, when your state fought the federal government for the "right" to own/sell/trade human beings like cattle. There's always got to be the nostalgic circle-jerk. They can't just make a rational argument based in court rulings and legislation.Dan Patrick said:?There was a time in this state, there was a time in our history, where we stood up to the federal government and we did not cower to rules and policies that invaded the privacy of Texans,?
Quite hypocritical indeed. Plenty of people also make a big deal out of 'freedom' and 'individualism' when all they do their entire lives is try and do exactly what their neighbors are doing (just slightly better).Hmmmm - that legislation is just so Un-American. Almost beggars belief that a country founded on the principles of individual freedoms has not complained more. I can see in moments of immediate threat why that may be needed but I do not think that America (USA) is actually in that position now.
