Brain stuff.
Josh 201604 KWP
Today was the day for me to post random crap.

I mean, where did the handgun stuff come from anyway? I guess it was premonition, because I got my concealed carry permit in the mail today.

I also am struggling with where I feel the balance of power should lie, which was triggered by a resurgence of my anti-TSA mentality.

What makes it tough is that I can see what the ideals of the TSA are. They're noble, but the practice is not. I don't think it's purely due to policy/procedure either. I feel it's an inherent defect in humanity that makes TSA's expansions impractical and unsafe.

Realistically, I'd take irradiation in lieu of a physical. I'm not too worried that some TSA agent will get caught masturbating to my picture as I walk through. I just don't like the idea of it. It's invasive, unwarranted, and sets a precedence of search without probable cause.

It's invasive, unwarranted, and sets a precedence of search without probable cause.

This is pretty much my reasons for being against it. I'm not concerned with the health risks, and frankly a full-body pat-down doesn't faze me. It's just is a big step in the direction I do NOT want to see our great nation go.

My high school didn't have doors on the bathroom stalls because some people would do "bad" things in there. To me it feels like the TSA, NSA, and other government agencies have been ripping off the bathroom stall doors of our personal, intimate privacy, *without probable cause or warrant* and I think it's wrong and completely in violation of our Constitution. Where does it end?

"Liberty — the freedom from unwarranted intrusion by government — is as easily lost through insistent nibbles by government officials who seek to do their jobs as by those who sole purpose it is to oppress; the piranha can be as deadly as the shark."
— Alex Kozinski, Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit

So, time to walk through security in speedos, a thin, undersized white shirt, and aquasocks...

Yeah, pretty much what vax said.

Also I'm pretty shy and even that vague outline of my figure is too embarrassing for the likes of me. I would turn bright red and be seriously uncomfortable for about a month after that. I know because I flashed someone while drunk once.

My captcha is Lord Navini. Today's gonna be good, I can tell.

Navini as in WiMax producer in Richardson, TX, or as in the resort island in Fiji? :)

Drunk flashing FTW!

I saw a lot of people posting to that Daily Squib article as though it were a factual account. It was pretty obvious just from its tone and language that it wasn't, but I guess most people don't question things.

It was believable, and we all WANT to believe.

I wanted more info, but it was all a text copy of the squibb one... so I snoped it.

They call it satire, but you know, satire is supposed to be just a little unbelievable, even coming from the Brits.
