My wife and I flew out of Savana airport in June. We walked up to the TSA checkpoint with two pull behind bags, one a carry on and other needed to be bag checked. We completely forgot to check the one bag. We waited in line and they let my wife through but stopped me and let me know that I needed to go to baggage and check the bag. I appologized and told them that we were just talking and I forgot. I went to check the bag and the bagage person informed me that I needed new boarding passes for both my wife and I since we now have a checked bag. I said okay and took the boarding passes and got back in line. When I went up to the person at the check in point I handed them both passes. They asked where my wife was and I told them she was over on the secured side waiting for me. Instantly I was jerked out of line and asked how my wife illegally passed through security. There were 5 TSA agents standing around me and another grabbed my wife and took her to a room off to the side. I explained what happened three different times, that at the time my wife went through she had a valid pass and they only started to believe when the TSA agent who sent me back to baggage spoke up even though she had been standing there the whole time. They finally let me through after 20 minutes. The whole time my wife was sitting in a room with TSA agents who refused to answer her as to why she was detained. I was told that trying to sneak through is considered a federal offense, what a bunch of idiots.
Sorry to hear about all that nonsense. Do you feel any more secure? I don't.
"Those who give up their liberty for more security neither deserve liberty nor security."
Sorry, John, there's a law against sneaking aboard a plane. Just like sneaking across
the border. There's a law about---. Never mind.

I think we should have a bring a gun to NY day and march on Time Square with 10s of thousand carrying. Have people from all over the country show up. The police can’t arrest us all and the ones who are should sue NY for violation of their right to bear arms, do it in a class action suit and sue for billions.

To the idiots who are complaining that everyone else will have to pay for this baby i’d like to ask how you know that. When my 1st daughter was born she was and is severly handicaped. We have to feed her, change her diapers, give her her baths, she doesn’t walk or talk and we have paid every dime that the insurance doesn’t cover. I pay a premium for that insurance and can assure you have paid tens of thousands out of pocket. By the way she is now 30 and lives in our home. I was told as an 18 year old that I should let her die and refused to do so and I will tell you it’s a decision I’ve never regreted for on second.
Yorkshire, England. Better read up on healthcare before you post.
John, and there is no criticism of those being responsible and accountable for their decision. You've created a straw man.
Thank you for sharing that...shows you think of others as more important than yourself. Truly Christ-like and very rare these days. My hat's off to you!
Cessna152, Christ never forcibly took from another for his benefit. Nor did Christ ever advocate taking from some and giving it to others. Twisted Christians are a problem. No different than twisted Muslims and Jews.
"The National Health Service (NHS) is the publicly funded healthcare system of England. It is the largest and the oldest single-payer healthcare system in the world. It is able to function in the way that it does because it is primarily funded through the general taxation system, in a similar fashion to the funding model for fire departments, police departments, and primary schools. The system provides healthcare to anyone normally legally resident in England, and also any other part of the United Kingdom (should a person from another UK area be travelling in England, for example), with almost all services free at the point of use for all such people...Since 1948, patients have been charged for some services such as eye tests, dental care, prescriptions, and aspects of long-term care. However, these charges are often lower than equivalent services provided by a private health care provider." Perhaps it's YOU who should do your research before you flatulate.
ElDeVerde, your description is correct. I don't disagree. It is socialism. I oppose socialism.
My point is that the same people here, who lament all day about the loss of personal freedom, lack of accountability, growth of government, implementation of socialized Obamacare... are the same people that now praise the decision of these parents, and by extension the system that permitted that decision.
My argument is one of principle. They are lacking in principle. They want it both ways. I am telling them that it is not possible.

Keatonc333, you are a lying uninformed jacka$$. I know Ted quite well and according to Snopes.com it’s been undetermined if he dodged the draft. It is a fact that he had a student deferment since he was enrolled in Oakland University. Ted was determined after that to have a Y-1 classification that means he could go to war and that was in 1971 and he was never drafted due to medical reasons. The discharge was changed to a F-4 not fit for military duty after they did away with Y-1 classifications and changed all of them to F-4. The pooping himself and meth myth was a interview he gave to high times magazine where he lied about the whole thing because the interviewer was a gullible idiot. Ted tried pot once and coke once in his whole life and does not drink. If your going to post about someone you don’t know anything about maybe you should do some research. Like I know I know Ted quite well and you are the essence of an *******.

Encinom, If you’re ever in a situation where have to defend your self against a nut job with a gun please let us law abidding gun holders know that it’s you so we can protect everyone else while laughing as you lay there bleeding, begging for your worthless life.

Here’s my plan and it takes care of several issues, First off every memeber of the UN will write the U.S a check for 1 billion dollars on April 15 of every year, call it a protection tax. If they don’t write the check then kick them out of the country. If we owe them money we take it off the amount owed and they don’t have to write a check. If the memeber don’t like then they have 60 days to dcure a new location and their own protection from all the worlds radicals. Next I would demand that Japan, South Korea, Germany, Poland, Iraq, Afganistan and any place elese that we have a military presence in order to keep them safe pays the United States a Billion a month, if Japan says no then they can deal with the Chinese, If Germany says no then they can deal with Russia, this would mean pulling our troops which means we then put them on the boarder to get rid of the illegal aliens. When we have jets that fly at Mach 5 or above and are developing a hypersonic fighter there is no reason to have these troops overseas when we can reach any conflict in a matter of a couple of hours.
Actually he married her in the comics back in the 1980s. The movies you watch about Spider-Man today are based on stories from the 60s and 70s (when the writers actually cared about the characters.)

When First Solar opened it’s Perrysburg Ohio plant they asked for and were given U.S. backed funding. The employees were then offered stock options instead of higher wages. The stock went through the roof after the government backed the company. The stock went to over $ 200.00 a share and many of the employees cashed out with millions. The stock has tumbeled ever since and was recently at a low of $ 6.00 a share. Now it’s up to $ 29.00 because the government just gave them the promise of more money. Without taxpayer money this company would be broke. It’s time to take this government to task and I think the way to do t is simple, on tax day we’ll all pay 10% of our income to the Government and not a penny more until they get their stuff together. On January 1st all workers and employers should stop taking out and sending in any Federal Income Tax until April 15th 2014 and then send the 10% They can’t throw us all in jail. The time is now to implement this and let them know this is the plan so they have 16 months to prepare for it or get their house in order now and save them selves from this plan.

Saw a great truck the other day, it was painted in the stars and stripes and on the back was a 2′ picture of Obamas face with the caption “does this a$$ make my truck look fat” I laughed out loud and gave the guy a thumbs up!!!

It’s not just California, I live in Ohio and the apt. complex I live in just had to redo 44 apts. because the sinks were 1/2″ to high. They also had to make a certain number of garage door 10′ high and add automatic openers for handicap vans eventhough there are none on the property. Also 144 concrete parking stops had to be installed. This is all under the new ADA requirements passed last year under Obamas watch. The management has already told us that rents will go up because of this. Are you better off then you were 4 years ago?

Take it or leave it and they are not their to accommodate you little miss freshmen. I guess these little babies are to stupid to fold the end over by them selves.
September 25, 2012 at 2:49pm
Hey moron, the average difference in pay between the men and women in Obamas administration is 18%. Maybe he should get his house in order before you play the equal pay act card. 2nd Akins will win, it was reported today that he’s seeing alot of cash rolling in again because people see how stupid Clair is. 3rd I don’t think Hillary has a chance in 2016 once it gets out that she along with the UN has drafted a law making it illegal to slander Islam and all that needs done is for the Senate to radify it. 4th the site unbiasedpolling does political polling without over sampling Dems or Rep. and does both likely voters and regestered voters has 15 major papers including Reuters and the NY Times reporting that Romney has an average 8 point lead.

The_Jerk, I’d say you are great at ommission yourself. Making a statement about a poll that the Europeon Commission conducted reflect they find Israel so dangerous but failing to state that at least 11 member nations are Muslim leaning or completely Muslim is a very misleading way to try and make a point. It’s like asking a group of 5 year olds if ice cream is good. I guess your name truely fits.
September 5, 2012 at 8:38am
V15, What’s the matter, do you have a chip on the shoulder? Maybe it’s your freakishly small manhood, Maybe it’s because you lost your high school spelling bee to the kids on the short bus. Or is it because at 23 your mom quit breast feeding you and you dad finally crawled off you? All I know is something seriously messed up your mind.

Dora can’t go to the clue store, they don’t take food stamps
July 26, 2012 at 9:05am
I would like to thank the officer for ridding us or a low life worthless thug. The fine man in blue just saved the taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars in food stamps and welfare payments. The reason we see these kinds of crowds is because ever since they woke up and voted for the president “just because he was black” they think they are entitled to act like thugs and spit in the face of the law. Please call me racists because I have become just that ever since Obama took office and made all the minorities a higher priority then white people. I now wear that badge proudly.

I have a 30 year old daughter who has never walked or said “Dad” she is in diapers and has to be fed and she to has Cerebral Palsy. She still lives at home and gives us more smiles than any person who isn’t disabled could. God bless this family.
John, not only has the Lord blessed you with a loving daughter, he has also blessed you with a gentle father's heart and the wisdom to see beyond her physical limitations to the beautiful young woman she is. You, sir, are an inspiration. Thank you for your post.

Wow do the leftist Atheists get upset when they have their little bubbles burst by someone who actually understands the place religion holds in the founding of this country. Notice how they start with the he’s a liar and a fraud but can’t explain why. Notice that Encinom has once again showed his ignorance and there is nothing wrong with being ignorant since it’s just a lack of knowledge but you would think he would want to learn something on his own instead of being lead around by his hand by people who will tell you they care about you right before they throw you under the bus, ie liberals. As someone who has seen plenty of people die because of my line of work I find it interesting that I have not met an atheist who doesn’t beg God not to die when the time comes.
encinom: This is typical of you and your type. The man has hand written letters from Thomas Jefferson. He's studied the guy six ways to Sunday but like your group does with the constitution you twist and manipulate the text to fit your agenda. Facts are facts and because someone says that Jefferson was secular doesn't make it true. This propaganda has been perpetuated in schools for too long and now that someone comes out with facts from Jefferson's written word, you want to ignore the facts and run with your lies. Let me ask you something. Have you read all of Jefferson’s letters to determine that he was secular? I doubt it. Your information comes from someone else’s interpretation and without reason you take that as bible. Sad. Really sad.
"It would give you a fever were I to name to you the apostates who have gone over to these heresies, men who were Samsons in the field and Solomons in the council, but who have had their heads shorn by the harlot England." in letter from Thomas Jefferson to Philip Mazzei, Monticello Apr. 24. 1796
For a man that people keep claiming was anti-religion, he seems to show a very acute understanding of it's text. Jefferson was a very religious man and if you go read any of his writings you would see it for yourself. Always seek truth, find it in a mans own words and deeds.
@brokenarrow You're right. Jefferson said, in his famous "separation between church and state" letter,
"I reciprocate your kind prayers for the protection & blessing of the common father and creator of man, and tender you for yourselves & your religious association, assurances of my high respect & esteem."
Plus, Jefferson said CHURCH and State, not religion and State. The Constitution also does not say "religion", it says, ESTABLISHMENT of Religion. Also, take into consideration that ALL FIFTY state constitutions make reference to God in their preamble, acknowledge that our civil and religious liberties are blessings from the Almighty, and not from men. In addition, the Northwest Ordinance, passed in 1789 by Congress, said, "And, for extending the fundamental principles of civil and religious liberty, which form the basis whereon these republics, their laws and constitutions are erected; to fix and establish those principles as the basis of all laws, constitutions, and governments, which forever hereafter shall be formed in the said territory... Religion, morality, and knowledge, BEING NECESSARY to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged."

If this was my property, I’d go get a sprayer and a couple of 55 gallon drums of Roundup and I’d go in and spray it and kill anything that is there or will be for a long time. I’d also be laughing my rear off as I did it. Have fun with your garden now suckers…
Actually, you know what would be fun? It's an organic farm that test bugs as bug repellant. Drop a boatload of bugs on them and see what happens. I'd buy tickets to watch that!

Simpletruths, I know the man well and I know his children as well. I’ve spent time at his property in Concord MI outside of Jackson. Ted is a wonderful father and family man who’s kid love and adore. You on the other hand are a liberal fool who repeats half truths that you read on sites like Moveon.org and try to impress everyone with your lack of knowledge. I would love to have you and your small minded liberal friends stand 40 yards down wind of a Nugent arrow. I’m sure when it went through you you’d bleed kool-aid.
