So let me preference this by saying, I am not bashing anyone's lifestyle, people are free to do as they please. However, some folks are meant for certain jobs. That being said, let me begin my story. Today I was flying home and like everyone I was faced with jumping through the usual hoops that the TSA forces on weary travelers. Take off your suit coat, take off your shoes, take out your lap top, remove everything from your pocket, blah blah, blah blah just strip down buck naked. Well I made up that last part but you get the drift. Being that I had been traveling since 6:15am, I was tired and well, I made the dreadful mistake of not removing my belt and proceeded to walk towards the death ray machine. As I stood in the machine and the glass doors moved around me I thought, damn, I forgot to take off my belt, this will not end good. Well I didn't just think of the belt, I was also thinking of how many x-rays were going into my body, why do I have to hold my arms up like I am being stuck up. But I digress. As I began to step out of the machine I was told that my torso had been flagged...damnnitt I knew it. So I did what every logical person would do, I pulled off the belt and handed it over to the agent. In my mind, I thought, now they are going to make me go back through this damn machine and thus will continue their efforts to deep fry my pancreas, liver, kidneys etc. This is the point where the comedy began, I was informed that my infraction would result in a full body pat down. Now let me pause this story, becuase I think its important to note who and what is telling me about the pat down. Since words won't work in some instances, sometimes a picture speaks volumes:
well it was one of these guys...let's move on. So this dude begins by rubbing my arms, I am uncomfortable at this point, but what can I do. Next he lets me know he needs to pat down my chest. Okay so dude does 4 individual rubs on my chest...at this point being uncomfortable is now moving towards becoming angry. Only if it had stayed at that point. This dude begins to reach inside my waistband, yes my waistband...so I blanked for about 12 seconds and when I came back to, I had his arm jacked up behind his head. I was like oh. oh, looks like I am about to go to jail......well I will stop the story here, because it becomes a bunch of "look I didn't mean too's, and he provoked me and come on I just want to get homes.....
At any rate, I thought I would share, NOT EVERYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO WORK EVERY JOB, DISCRIMINATION BE DAMNED....
When a party cannot inspire the electorate through future opportunities or the chance at greatness, they have to demonize the opponents. They do this by telling many groups how bad they currently have it and how it will only get worse if their opponents are elected. Hence, the war on women. Women had no clue how bad they had it until Obamas team started telling them how put upon they actually were and Romney would take them back to horse and buggy days.
Now, you have to wonder how much patronization the modern woman can take. Pretty much if voting patterns are any indication. Same with blacks. They have been a poor underacheiving group for the last 60 years and Dems have been and will continue to be the beneficiaries of their low position. All they have to do in each election cycle is to tell the black community that their woes are due to the conservatives and they fall right back in line. It does not matter that generations have never made any progress under Dems, they are victims of the right and the Dems are their only saving grace.
It happens all the time. And the Dems just keep creating more victims and more constituents. Why then, would the Dems ever want any group to "rise above"?
If there ever was any question about you in anyone's mind you sure as hell just answered it.
wow, your comments re affirm my position on mankind. I am sorry this doesn't cause you issues, because as a father it did for me. I empathize with the family and to watch that has to be the worst experience I could ever imagine. TCF I respect what you felt about this and appreciate that you didn't want to share it with others but wanted to vent about it. I get it
