Freedom infractions
« on: August 16, 2011, 03:41:44 PM »
Howdy all! I wanted to pass on a tidbit I found alarming. I went to UPS and sent a small package with a cable modem in it to Cox Communications. They ID'd me in accordance with Homeland Security protocol (the beast I'll call them now). I may be too old fashioned, but since when do you get ID'd to send mail? To think I have spent my whole adult life defending this nation's citizen's freedoms only to come home & find that those freedoms were taken away by their own government.

Well Hell,
Erv

I hear ya Erv, sad, sad state of affairs.  I had the same thing happen to me at the Post Office not too long ago.  All I was trying to do was return a book that was sent in error, and I felt like I was being treated like a terrorist or something.  The guy actually had the nerve to ask twice if it was just a book (and explain the penalties for lying for getting a cheaper rate if it's not a book), when I told him I wanted the book rate.  No, I felt like saying it's a book and a bomb but I can't afford the extra buck for shipping!!!!But I kept my mouth shut, cuz heaven only knows what kinda trouble that joke would've got me into!

After 911 I was all for homeland security and the patriot act. I thought the only people that need to worry about it were rag head terrorist.
I had a friend with a last name Robinson have his name show up on TSA no fly list at the airport.
Vets coming home and watched like criminals?
Children, family members and old people molested by airport security, no common sense what so ever.
What a mess.

Guys, I got stripsearched in the Dallas airport in July 2003 while flying home on leave from Operation Iraqi Freedom.  They singled me out because I purchased a one-way ticket as I chose to leave my car at home while I was gone and I like to wear cowboy boots.  I was just like, really???  You are going to strip search a US Marine?  You think I am a threat to this country?  I just got home from Iraq for Christ sakes.  And just think... this was long before the TSA nightmare we are enduring nowdays.  Unbelievable how far we have traveled down the road to Communism in the USA.

I worked for many years in the airline industry in So Cal.  & finally "opt-out" & moved to Az. This was 1991. I didn't realize what I was doing at the time but now I know why I "opt-out" I continue to "opt-out" on a daily basis. I will not deal with brown shirts or jack boots.

the same thing happened to me comeing home on leave from iraq in aug 2007 in the Dallas airport, I was in full uniform! I pitched a bitch and they told me "its just because your number was up". the number on my ticket that is. looking for bad guys, well thats one thing but to do it simply because the number on your plane ticket matches thiers is wrong!

Amazing. Just freaking amazing.  I am now on recruiting duty in Kansas City.  Just the other day I walked into a certain court house, in uniform, that I have been to many times over the last 3 years.  This old man, homeland security guy actually made me empty my pockets, walk through the metal detector, and then gave me the wand.  I didn't say a word but just gave him that, "Really???" look.  He just stood there for the longest time waiting for me to say something.  I knew better than to say a word and he finally said, "Just doing my job Marine."  I said, "I didn't say anything Sir.  It is just that in almost 3 years on recruiting duty, this is the first time I have ever been searched entering a government building in uniform."  He replied, "Just doing my job Marine.  Have a good day."  I was blown away.  If a member of the military cannot enter a federal court house without getting the third degree, then something is seriously wrong in this country.

We are all considered bad guys until they can be sure we are not, that is their directive and I feel it will get brutally worse by Christmas time when all the package carrying public will be going about with purchases so cleverly disguised as a gift. All we can do is prepare for the ones we love and help those we are able , be kind to strangers but not a door mat and do only good for others. To cause strife will only bring strife and we must be the Humans we need to be. I most likely will try to be helpful on a very local basis. I dread that day the masses start to move{{:>(

Alfred, let's hope it is later rather than sooner, if/when that begins it would be wise to already be in ones safe place tho.
