Quote Of The Day

Saturday a week ago, TSA officials in Florida forced a 95 year-old woman who has terminal leukemia to remove her adult diaper to be inspected. They claimed to have found something "suspicious" on her leg.

Tam at View from the Porch had this to say about this outrage, TSA's support of the ghoulish thugs who perpetrated this on an elderly woman, and a culture that would allow it.
Seriously, have we reached a point where we, as a nation, are so pants-pissingly scared of a bunch of self-immolating neolithic goatherds that we are willing to inflict any indignity on any citizen at any time rather than expose ourselves to the slightest bit of risk?
I couldn't agree more. If our forefathers had this same level of risk aversion, we'd still be a colony and the National Anthem would be God Save the Queen.
