    We're Here To Help You

    Once more you friends at the government, courtesy of the TSA, have kept you safe on the journeys in the airways from 8-year-old terrorist.

    According to the TSA website, the toys were considered "Realistic Replicas of Firearms" which cannot be in the carry on luggage. Since the highly trained, elite employees of the TSA goose-step to their own beat, they didn't care about an 8 year-old boy who had recently lost his father to cancer. They didn't care that the "weapons" were nothing but plastic toys. The rules are the rules and everyone must follow them. They also did not give them the option of mailing them to their home or placing them in their checked baggage. That the TSA agents were then seen playing with the toys just underscores the absurdity of the situation.

    I understand that these regulations were supposedly put in place for our "protection", but I also know that TSA agents have taken some leeway in enforcing them.

    Fortunately the people at Disney heard what happened and sent the boy replacement toys.

    This just underscores "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."-Benjamin Franklin

    Take back your liberty by being responsible for yourself.
