I love the fall - every fall is college cross country and football season and every two years it is is political season(Congress every 2 - and president every 4) - and during the fall we have an official holiday during which we give thanks to God, eat turkey, and watch more college football(or run Turkey Trots)! It is a great season - even Halloween is great!
I hate to break it to you but Ron Paul will not get the nomination.

They really should shorten their name to the S.A. It would make way more sense! All they need now are new uniforms.

LOL - my favorite ensemble is all black - but when I gave a recent speech opposing the TSA - I wore a royal blue shirt and black slacks!

Does driving past a weigh station without stopping look suspicious? Are these TSA guys feeling up truck drivers now or is it just limited to the vehicle?

I think you should take your protest to the closest airport and take it up with the first TSA agent you see, vs. opening a thread about it. Tell us about it when it's over. Give us some inspiration and show us how we can fight the system. Take some cash, though. Might need to call a bail bondsman, afterwards. Might be a pay phone at the jail. Fight hard......but fight smart.

You are probally right - and that is a good thing - I don't want Ron Paul to get the nomination. Rick Santorum is on the ballot in my state which has not voted yet in the Republican primary - but I know better to throw my vote way on him. Willard is not ideal - but he is better then President Obama and he will receive my vote. My point was that we will not know who the nominees for any party are until mid to late summer.

This may be true - but the "Bush started it" excuse doesn't hold much weight. I supported President Bush - but I had many objections and complaints to and about his policies - and TSA was one of them. President Obama is the head of the executive branch now and he is continuing this misguided policy of setting TSA officers loose on our highways. President Bush is no longer responsible for this - President Obama is - my question for President Obama is - why?
