Quote of the Day–Linoge (03/15/2012)

In a just universe, that much fail concentrated in one organization would create a small, short-duration microsingularity that would simply erase the entire bureaucracy off the face of the planet, never to be heard from again. In our universe, the people in charge get raises, and we get our junk groped.

[The lack of critical thinking ability of some people astounds me.  It seems that the majority of the populace seem to think that doing  it again but this time harder somehow actually works.  Not only do they want to do it harder, but they want you and they’re skipping the Vaseline.  Just lie back and think of England. –B]

    Why thank you – I must confess to being proud of that particular paragraph. 

    I am really at something of a loss as to why Americans allow the TSA to continue to exist…  At this point, that permission stands as mute witness to my notion that most Americans want the government we have… 

    • Some may want it, some are lethargic not understanding the actual issue.  Who cares if they grope me says the soristitute, they’re government employees.  To which my wife says to her, “So your only requirement to let a stranger touch your junk is that they work for the government?  If you think honest non perverted people work for the government, much less the TSA I have a nice chunk of waterfront real estate to sell you.”  At which point the conversation ended.

      I think the majority of Americans stand silent because of fear.  If they stand up they become a”terrorist”.  A good chunk of those who fly still do so because they must.  Many of us have just stopped flying. No one wants to be disappeared in the middle of the night.  When your tyrannical overlords are claiming a right to kill it’s own citizens outside the law there’s going to be a large group who are afraid.  So afraid that they will no want to speak out in fear of what can happen to them.
