T.L. Davis Asks a Good Question..................

Barack Obama: Why Doesn't He Like Us?

Can't pull a money quote for ya. Just go read it.

In other news, this is kinda nice-
TRAINS exclusive: Amtrak police chief bars Transportation Security Administration from some security operations
"WASHINGTON — In late February, the Transportation Security Administration took over the Amtrak station in Savannah, Ga., and thoroughly searched every person who entered. None of the passengers got into trouble, but the TSA certainly did — big time.

Amtrak Police Chief John O’Connor said he first thought a blog posting about the incident was a joke. When he discovered that the TSA’s VIPR team did at least some of what the blog said, he was livid. He ordered the VIPR teams off Amtrak property, at least until a firm agreement can be drawn up to prevent the TSA from taking actions that the chief said were illegal and clearly contrary to Amtrak policy.

“When I saw it, I didn’t believe it was real,” O’Connor said. When it developed that the posting on an anti-TSA blog was not a joke, “I hit the ceiling.”

Am I seeing a trend here?
Texas lawmakers look to limit TSA scans, pat-downs at airports

"A bipartisan group of more than 20 state lawmakers have signed on in support of measures to ban the TSA from using controversial screening procedures in Texas airports.

State Reps. David Simpson, R-Longview, and Eddie Rodriguez, D-Austin, have gotten about 20 fellow legislators to co-author bills the pair filed last week banning the use of full-body scanners and invasive pat-down searches on fliers."

Sounds like a good start.
Hard for me to believe that a lot of this TSA crap is only for the purpose of training the citizens in compliance.

Oh, by the way, Financially? We're still Boned.
U.S. sets $223B deficit record

"The federal government posted its largest monthly deficit in history in February, a $223 billion shortfall that put a sharp point on the current fight on Capitol Hill about how deeply to cut this year’s spending."
$223 BILLION dollars of debt in only one month.

And you're telling me that the friggin' geniuses in Washington DC can't find any way to cut some of the spending out of the federal budget?
My aching ass.

"We're Boned". Better get used to that idea and start planning accordingly Kids.

Gratuitous Picture for a Tuesday Morning-
