As a government employee who already suffered furloughs this summer, fark you TeaTards. You have done nothing to improve this country and done everything to destroy it. I've got bills to pay and you're not helping matters

Even better sitting out here in Afghanistan and having your pay suddenly stop.  Makes managing things at home from thousands of miles away REAL easy.

I can't imagine how "easy" it is. Maybe we could put you in Congress and send them over there...nah, that would never work. They'd shiat their pants waaaaaaaay before they even got on the plane

I was promised by fox news dot com that the sequester was actually going to be good for the country because...well, I don't think they gave a reason, I think they just pointed out that Obama didn't want it so it had to be good, but yeah. That's good enough for me and mine.

FTFA: Some Senate Republicans, including would-be 2016 presidential rivals Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida, have said they would vote to refuse to pay for the health care law, even if it meant shutting down portions of the government. Paul has called closing down the government "a dumb idea."


RINO!!!

Well shutting down the government would interfere with the Medicare payments his medical practice depends on

This sequester thing reminds me of last week, when I went through customs at Dulles. The line for immigration was long, but immigration was pretty well staffed. By the time you got to the customs checkpoint, there were  two agents and  three planeloads of people trying to make a connection. Thanks, Obama.

Slaxl: When will "welp" die?


Welp, y'know, it's just a filler word. Like, um, "like", and uh... "hmmm", or "y'know"... er..., so, well, it's going to stick around, because it's a simple monosyllable that conveys no information but breaks up speech giving the speaker more time to think and giving the audience more time to process.

//Seriously, though, the experience was miserable enough that I found myself wondering why on Earth I came back to the US after vacation.

These tards should cut their own benefits and premium health care first... show us how it is done; tea pots. Then I'll listen to them about cutting mine.

Also "Paul said Republicans still expect members to fight the law, which national polls show only about a third of Americans support. "

Only one third support it? Or is that a quote of what he "believes".

This is RAND PAUL trying to salvage his 2016 Presidential run.  Ted Cruz is going full derp ahead on this, and so RAND PAUL wants to be able to just sit back, let Cruz destroy himself, and then move in on his supporters.

How about "Do you believe the government should defund Obamacare?"

If that's the question, a majority of Americans say "No, Obamacare should not be defunded."

Lowering the number of people who use the ER as primary care, making sure everyone is vaccinated will help everyone. Doing away with pre-existing condition denials and lifetime limits will help most people.

I don't know about that. The deficit is as low as it has been in ages and the debt looks manageable. Hell, if we just shut the government down every year when we run out of funding, maybe, just maybe, we will actually raise taxes and cut discretionary spending to the point that we no longer have a deficit.

It stands to reason that new kids on the block of the TeaPartyPatriots wouldn't extend the debt ceiling again, as America shouldn't, but Obama new they wouldn't.

Serious question: did they ever submit an alternative route for approval? Last I heard the legislature and Governor of Nebraska would not approve the suggested route and TransCanada said they were working on developing an alternate route. It just seems crazy to me if it gets building approval before they even have a route for the pipeline that the states will agree to.

we get paid far less than the private sector, we're often the first people to get hit with these economic decisions. We're the ones that get furloughed, we're the ones who actually have it against the freakin' law to do our jobs during these times. When we can't work, it farks over the private sector.

I was promised by fox news dot com that the sequester was actually going to be good for the country because...well, I don't think they gave a reason, I think they just pointed out that Obama didn't want it so it had to be good, but yeah. That's good enough for me and mine.

Obama didn't want the sequester?

It was his idea, of course he wanted it.

I'm told on Fark by FarkLibs at least five times a day that Barack "BOBby Fisher" Obama plays 4th dimension chess. He new the sequester was bad, and new Dim's wouldn't be n'sync with R's on a deal. It stands to reason that new kids on the block of the TeaPartyPatriots wouldn't extend the debt ceiling again, as America shouldn't, but Obama new they wouldn't.

When all that happens there is only one direction to go he will institute martial sharia law and appoint himself King as America burns under 98 degrees heat next summer. At that point theres no turning back. Street boys in the new black panthers will run our local governments.

Liberals, uhhhh... didn't look as silly?


I agree with you yet the conservatives certainly act as if they've been pounded into the dirt and pissed upon.

It's like the chemical weapons in Syria.   Peacefully removing the weapons from Syria is about the best outcome the international community could hope, and we've got people biatching about how Putin somehow embarrassed the U.S. as if it would be better to risk soldiers lives and kill civilians just to make Putin look bad.

t3knomanser: This sequester thing reminds me of last week, when I went through customs at Dulles. The line for immigration was long, but immigration was pretty well staffed. By the time you got to the customs checkpoint, there were  two agents and  three planeloads of people trying to make a connection. Thanks, Obama.

Slaxl: When will "welp" die?

Welp, y'know, it's just a filler word. Like, um, "like", and uh... "hmmm", or "y'know"... er..., so, well, it's going to stick around, because it's a simple monosyllable that conveys no information but breaks up speech giving the speaker more time to think and giving the audience more time to process.

//Seriously, though, the experience was miserable enough that I found myself wondering why on Earth I came back to the US after vacation.
//"Welcome to the United States. Go fark yourself."


We've experienced that same feeling...most recently after arriving home after a trip to Scotland, but the worst time was coming back from Japan.

And yet the dickhole guy at the border crossing into Montana, with a million and one questions, etc.got us feeling all happy after he handed us our papers back and smiled (for the first time I the whole exchange) and said
'welcome home.'

The Grand Old Party is working diligently to save America. The biggest job killing piece of legislation since the days of FDR is Obamacare, so it's important to tackle that first. But, BOB and the dems have been stubborn and have only changed Obamacare in ways that benefit their cronies, i.e. BOB and the dems have not been looking out for the American people.

I'd bet it's a lot more that Obama keeps pitching traditionally Republican ideas. It's kind of hard to play partisan politics when he's just reading out of their book from 10-20 years ago.

And I think it's driving them crazy.


It's the method to his madness:  Trot out GOP ideas that mainstream Americans accept, then watch the GOP go apeshiat over it.

we get paid far less than the private sector, we're often the first people to get hit with these economic decisions. We're the ones that get furloughed, we're the ones who actually have it against the freakin' law to do our jobs during these times. When we can't work, it farks over the private sector.

Have you read the ACA?  I don't think they lost at all, they just didn't outright win.  The fact that we have something like the ACA is a victory in that it begins to officially admit that health care in this country is fundamentally broken, from which point maybe some solutions can be found now that the problem has been omitted.  I very much doubt that ACA as written is going to be that solution.  Some of the fallout from the "improvements" and "compromises" made to it are going to cause much misery.

2013-09-23 10:34:06 AM  
This is what happens when you send faux-ideologues to Congress, as opposed to competent legislators.

I get it. Folks are upset that the Libbiest Libs Who Ever Libbed a Lib have seats, and a President who speaks softly and lets you hit yourselves with your own stick, but at some point, maybe folks might want to STOP giving them ammunition to dun you with. Especially when the plan you oppose so much, was the pretty much the plan that you put forward a few years ago, and your Presidential nominee actually signed into law already.

I am NOT a fan of the ACA. It is a giveaway to the insurance industry, though less of one that Romney put forward in Mass--and perhaps THAT is the real feature that folks who are leading this "fight" have: it doesn't just give huge amounts of government cash directly to the middlemen to dole out at their leisure and a huge opportunities to turn that cash into interest elsewhere. It is still an awfully big giveaway that we might better use by not shuffling it between bank to bank to bank, and maybe actually see it in circulation. That was the modification that got it to pass though, and it still offers a better course than: hope y'all don't get sick and die. There's still a lot to do: mental health care in the nation has been gutted, jobs are still sparse, and the current model for "growth" apparently is more of the same house of cards shuffling and an assisted market model that only benefits a few, as opposed to opening up markets for real competition. For folks who claim that they want to see a free market, they are digging their heels in damn hard to prevent real competition and actual entrepreneurs to enter said markets. Coupled with a damning "law and order" mentality that shackles local, state, and the Fed to wasting millions upon untold millions on keeping a dollars flowing to private prisons, attorneys, and a seizure plan that allows looting of the public coffers and skimming directly from human misery, and we have some issues still to deal with at home, and yet, folks seem bent on getting us involved in every conflict across the globe, and then cry and wail when someone suggests something that WON'T get a lot of folks killed, and wail when the President might actually take a firm line. Then again, it does go back to the idea that mental health care is in serious jeopardy in this nation, and sadly, more than a few of our legislators, despite being well covered at this point for such care, they won't avail themselves to it, and their families are loathe to get them committed to save not just themselves, but the nation that they imperil....

And this is why the reasonable leaders from each party will make sure that the extremists on the GOP side will not succeed or if they do, they will be punished.

It is kind of like how the stock market is now driven by quarterly gains and not any reasonable look at the economic future and a roadmap of sustainability.  If you look behind the curtain, it is the same 'job creators' pushing both ideas.

Considering that Syria is a Russian client-state, it has ALWAYS been up to the Russians to clean up that particular mess, too. That they've been dragging their feet on this for nearly two years isn't exactly a "embarrassing" the US. It is the usual hemming and hawing that the UN community has been doing for generations, and the clucking of tongues, and hoping that someone(else) will do something that none of them have the courage or wherewithal to do themselves. Getting the Russians to finally address the issue, by forcing it with the potential to have said client-state bombed to sh*t while there is a civil war on, possibly destabilizing a fairly delicate dance to keep their boy in power so that their contractors and business interests will be firmly protected, that was not a pretty bit of theater, but it worked.  And all the while, that the supposed foreign policy geniuses who KNOW we have NO legitimate interests in the region were trying to come up with reasons that ANY action we took would make this President look weak. The entire hue and cry on this crisis was nothing but shameless opportunism, and it only made the GOP look even weaker and more shrill, while trying desperately to look "most punkest!" at the same time.

When I was bouncing, it was always the guy who talked the loudest, screamed the most, boasted the most, and derided everyone who curled up like CheezDoodle when things actually got to the point where action was required. At this point, the shrillness telegraphs a huge amount of what these folks actually have in the tank for a real fight. And afterwards, these loudmouths were the first to blame ANYONE else for their performance, and at this point, the parallels are far too similar for me to have much respect for the endless stream of armchair quarterbacks....

TheMysticS: t3knomanser: This sequester thing reminds me of last week, when I went through customs at Dulles. The line for immigration was long, but immigration was pretty well staffed. By the time you got to the customs checkpoint, there were  two agents and  three planeloads of people trying to make a connection. Thanks, Obama.

Slaxl: When will "welp" die?

Welp, y'know, it's just a filler word. Like, um, "like", and uh... "hmmm", or "y'know"... er..., so, well, it's going to stick around, because it's a simple monosyllable that conveys no information but breaks up speech giving the speaker more time to think and giving the audience more time to process.

//Seriously, though, the experience was miserable enough that I found myself wondering why on Earth I came back to the US after vacation.
//"Welcome to the United States. Go fark yourself."

We've experienced that same feeling...most recently after arriving home after a trip to Scotland, but the worst time was coming back from Japan.

And yet the dickhole guy at the border crossing into Montana, with a million and one questions, etc.got us feeling all happy after he handed us our papers back and smiled (for the first time I the whole exchange) and said
'welcome home.'


Strange thing is, as a Canadian I've visited the States more times than I can count and I have never had a bad experience with US customs and immigration. Granted, whenever I fly I pre-clear at the Toronto airport (US customs agents actually clear you at the airport before you board so you don't have to deal with immigration at your destination), and whenever I drive I cross at either Niagara Falls or Fort Erie, both of which are very busy and hence very efficient.

Aristocles: Graffito: Aristocles: Jairzinho: FTA: "...the presidential prospect said Republicans in Congress could use votes on measures in the House and in the Senate to come up with compromise legislation that could make the law more palatable."

Now that you guys realize that it's not going to happen, now, now you want to COMPROMISE? What would you guys give up that you could still obtain? NOTHING!! so Fark OFF!!!!

Actually, no. If the dems, libs, and Farklibs would simply listen to what the Teabaggers are saying, maybe there wouldn't be so many misconceptions.

The Grand Old Party is working diligently to save America. The biggest job killing piece of legislation since the days of FDR is Obamacare, so it's important to tackle that first. But, BOB and the dems have been stubborn and have only changed Obamacare in ways that benefit their cronies, i.e. BOB and the dems have not been looking out for the American people. As Obamacare is slowly forced down the American people's throats, Republicans are keeping an open mind about ways to prevent the bungled, anti-Freedom legislation from destroying our Great Nation.

Who the hell is BOB?

You know, it's annoying how pathetic the Farklibs are getting on this issue. You know you can't defend BOB's dud, so you try to change the subject.

If they set a precedent where they can just defund any law they don't happen to like, then no law is sacred. They can use the budget to punish their political enemies for passing laws they disagree with.

Our government is broken beyond repair

The bolded bit above is correct. No law is sacred.

hubiestubert: This is what happens when you send faux-ideologues to Congress, as opposed to competent legislators.

I get it. Folks are upset that the Libbiest Libs Who Ever Libbed a Lib have seats, and a President who speaks softly and lets you hit yourselves with your own stick, but at some point, maybe folks might want to STOP giving them ammunition to dun you with. Especially when the plan you oppose so much, was the pretty much the plan that you put forward a few years ago, and your Presidential nominee actually signed into law already.

I am NOT a fan of the ACA. It is a giveaway to the insurance industry, though less of one that Romney put forward in Mass--and perhaps THAT is the real feature that folks who are leading this "fight" have: it doesn't just give huge amounts of government cash directly to the middlemen to dole out at their leisure and a huge opportunities to turn that cash into interest elsewhere. It is still an awfully big giveaway that we might better use by not shuffling it between bank to bank to bank, and maybe actually see it in circulation. That was the modification that got it to pass though, and it still offers a better course than: hope y'all don't get sick and die. There's still a lot to do: mental health care in the nation has been gutted, jobs are still sparse, and the current model for "growth" apparently is more of the same house of cards shuffling and an assisted market model that only benefits a few, as opposed to opening up markets for real competition. For folks who claim that they want to see a free market, they are digging their heels in damn hard to prevent real competition and actual entrepreneurs to enter said markets. Coupled with a damning "law and order" mentality that shackles local, state, and the Fed to wasting millions upon untold millions on keeping a dollars flowing to private prisons, attorneys, and a seizure plan that allows looting of the public coffers and skimming directly from human misery, and we have some issues still to deal with at home, and yet, folks seem bent on getting us involved in every conflict across the globe, and then cry and wail when someone suggests something that WON'T get a lot of folks killed, and wail when the President might actually take a firm line. Then again, it does go back to the idea that mental health care is in serious jeopardy in this nation, and sadly, more than a few of our legislators, despite being well covered at this point for such care, they won't avail themselves to it, and their families are loathe to get them committed to save not just themselves, but the nation that they imperil....


It's boy bands! Boy bands, right?

CSB time!

Last time I had to fly commercial in and out of the States was when my dad passed last May.  I kind of left in a hurry (understandably) and didn't empty out my wallet.  As I live in Southern Spain, I have Euro and Gibraltar Pound Sterling in my wallet, in addition to the American currency I use on base.  So I flew from Madrid into Chicago.  I got stopped in Chicago O'Hare on my way into Detroit because the back-scatter machine apparently decided that my wallet looked suspicious.

So, the guy asked to see it, which I was a little leery about, but figured if I wanted to make my flight I'd just have to do it.  He opened it up, and then looks at me with an upturned eyebrow.  

TSA: "Why do you have three kinds of currency in here?"

Naturally, I'm not in the greatest mood (my dad was dying, after all) and told him where I lived, and why I used three kinds of money.  

TSA: "I don't see why you need three kinds.  Europe uses the Euro."

Me: "Yes, but the British Isles, and it's territories like Gibraltar, use the Pound."

TSA: "....I have to talk to my supervisor."

So, he left and came back from behind a screen with a sour looking gentleman with a John Bolton mustache, which instantly made me hate him.  HE asked me why I had three kinds of currency.  I sarcastically told them "You caught me.  I'm actually Jason Borne.  I just really let myself go and got really fat.  Part of my disguise."

TSA Supervisor:  "Sir, joking about terrorism is grounds for arrest.  Don't do that."

Me: "But I wasn't jokin....  You know what, I'm sorry."

After explaining it to this guy, he finally let me pass just in time to make the run to my connection gate.

fsud: Obama didn't want the sequester?

It was his idea, of course he wanted it.

I'm told on Fark by FarkLibs at least five times a day that Barack "BOBby Fisher" Obama plays 4th dimension chess. He new the sequester was bad, and new Dim's wouldn't be n'sync with R's on a deal. It stands to reason that new kids on the block of the TeaPartyPatriots wouldn't extend the debt ceiling again, as America shouldn't, but Obama new they wouldn't.

When all that happens there is only one direction to go he will institute martial sharia law and appoint himself King as America burns under 98 degrees heat next summer. At that point theres no turning back. Street boys in the new black panthers will run our local governments.

"Paul said Republicans still expect members to fight the law, which national polls show only about a third of Americans support. "

They keep repeating this but I really find it hard to believe. Obama ran on a platform of health care reform and was elected. Then he ran on a platform of implementing the ACA, and he was re-elected. What part of "elected to reform health care and re-elected to implement health care reform" do these people not understand? The national polls in question must be framing the question in terms of "If you knew that Obamacare would murder your grandmother, would you still support it?"

rosebud_the_sled: Is it just me or has everything conservatives have tried to do in the last 15 years ended in failure?  And managed to cost the public trillions.  Iraq?  Afghanistan?  Fighting Obamacare?  Trying to manage the US economy.

Is there anything they are capable of beyond pooping their pants?  I realize that they are all intentionally ignorant, but they must have gotten something right over the last two decades.

/getting morons to vote for you is not success, it just means that you are from a red state


They have not failed, it is just your criteria for success are not their criteria for success. See, you assume they are governing for everyone and that is not true. Their success is that they have looted the treasury, twice now, allowing their friends to acquire massive amounts of wealth. They have successfully slowed or stopped investigation into the financial sector, twice now, so that the financial sector can commit fraud, their friends can gain billions of dollars in wealth, and get the public to pay for the clean up.

They have successfully created this idea of class war, and pitted the middle class against the poor. While at the same time decimating the middle class. They have successfully used fear of change, fear of god, and fear of whatever to keep themselves in power.

So, by my measure they have been an unprecedented success, it is just that the middle class and poor have been hurt and sometimes destroyed by their success.

So a "real job" can only come from the private sector, huh?  Police, firefighters, and soldiers don't have real jobs?  We should just abolish all government--local, state, and federal--and turn into an anarchic mess because you don't like that, in order to function, governments require workers, which are in turn paid by tax dollars?  That's pretty stupid, don't you think?

Perhaps, but if you live in Costa Rica, you are no longer "Paying salaries like [his]".

You are also paying for the healthcare of people that are not you, so, sorry buddy, they're still stealing 'the fruits of your labor'.  Whatever your labor may be.

Because the government doesn't poke its collective arse into everything under the sun, patient care, medication, etc is affordable.

He's never come out and explained this BOB thing.   *shrugs*    I think it's meant to demonize our President, but I don't get it.   I say we just point and laugh at him.   It's up to him to explain this new meme he keeps pushing.


Well, we call the government Uncle Sam.
President Obama is the representative of that government.
President Obama is your Uncle, because he represents the government.
Bob's your Uncle, is a saying that means everything is okay.

Hence he is really saying that everything is okay, because BOB, who is your uncle, Uncle Sam, President Obama is okay.

Felgraf: phenn: Felgraf: Also, psst, psst. Costa Rica provides universal healthcare.

You would be partially correct.

There is a government-underwritten health care system here called CAJA. It benefits the residents and citizens - not emigrants. It is funded by a consumption (sales) tax and works well for those who use it. For those who do not, health care is cheap. VERY cheap. Because the government doesn't poke its collective arse into everything under the sun, patient care, medication, etc is affordable.

Still taking the fruit of your labor at no benefit to you. Tax is a tax.


How do you figure that health care insurance isn't a benefit? Or do you not understand how insurance works? Not everyone gets more out of an insurance policy than they put in.

Costa Rica. Far from perfect, but a good life.

I get a lot of people here who say things like 'then, why do you care?' So, to make it clear, I still have children in the states and what happens there affects them. Hence, I care.


I now understand: your children have effectively disowned you, and you wish to punish them.

I wonder if the health care is very cheap because the vast majority of the health care consumers are on a single payer system.

Nah, that can't be it.

udhq: The biggest flaw in the philosophical underpinnings of galt trolls in that they assume property rights are God-given and universal. Try driving a really nice car around downtown Mogadishu for a while and leery me know how that works out for you.

The only reason that you got yours is that a government is present to maintain the social order that keeps property from being seized by whoever has the biggest gun.


Exactly. People who complain about the government interfering with their "right": to their property need to be reminded that without the government there is no property as we know it.

In my experience, breathing is sufficient to make the TSA grumpy. When I flew to Salt Lake City for my dad's funeral a couple weeks ago, I got pulled aside for a "random" check.

He's an immigrant in costa rica, and he specifically said that their universal health care does not apply to immigrants.

Thus, he is still doing something the he *claims* is the reason he left the US.

I think it's some kind of puzzle.  Like a multi-post/multi-thread cypher that you have to try to put together.  Just filling in 'POTUS' in exchange for 'BOB' in most of his posts obviously doesn't work, too many of the facts don't line up.  From the context, I've concluded it must stand for some organization or individual who is a shadowy, malicious power broker manipulating events from behind the scenes -- but so far I don't have any leads.  These word search and word substitution games sure keep the politics tab fun!

Already done.

So, no taxes or government where you live?


No no no no no. They have that stuff. What they don't have is MOOCHERS, PARASITES, and LOOTERS. It's just a Galtian paradise of self made men, titans of industry, and independent productive achievers like him.

So, the strategerie is

1. make the gop in general seem as barking-mad crazy as possible

2. Run as a POTUS candidate as a republican who unlike those guys actually cares for the needy and dispossed. A "compassionate conservative" as it were.

Gee, where have I seen this scam before?

No. There is no government here. No taxes and no civilization. I live in a tree and am typing this on a coconut. When the sun sets, I can hear the sounds of savages hunting crocodiles in the pitch.

YES, GENIUS. There is a government and there are taxes. Why do people insist on asking absurd questions?


Why do you take absurd stands like "NOBODY IS ENTITLED TO MY LABOR BECAUSE OF REASONS", but only feel strongly about it when living in America?

If you go all the way back to the start of this, you'll see that I responded to someone who said 'fark the tea tards, I have bills to pay'. He/she also said he worked for the government.

I told him/her to get bent. I don't like the attitude that, because he/she works for the government, he/she is ENTITLED to that job and, since I am formerly someone who paid his/her salary, I dislike his/her attitude.

Where anyone got the notion that I'm for life without any shred of government is a bit beyond me.

But, this is FARK. And, here is where people come to create arguments out of thin air, using the most absurd nonsense they can pull out of their arses.

I'll get over it.

Sadly, these tricone hat wearing CHUDS have as little to do with the actual American Patriots as possible. They scream about "freedom", but in reality, the only freedom they want is freedom for themselves to be inhuman buttholes at everyone else.

A scattered mob of cranks and asswipes, brought together under a common flag of faux empowerment, and too stupid to know that they've been drafted into the Koch Army to do the bidding of the filthy rich.

Because once you get into Galt's Gulch, they only take from you what you are able to contribute to the society. And those takings don't go to MOOCHERS, they are distributed according to who actually needs them.

Interesting. You seem to like the fact that the government helps maintain a civilization in which you enjoy living.  Hard to believe all those 'not real jobs' can manage something like that.

What was that you were saying about 'absurd'?

So what's the end game of your  "NO ONE DESERVES THE FRUIT OF MY LABOR" whargarble?

Obviously SOMEONE deserves it, just not Americans?

The end game of your "Taxes are theft" bullshiat is a feudal society where the rich have huge armies to protect themselves and the poor routinely starve to death. I know you're thinking "That's ok, I'm a Job Creator. I'd be rich. fark those poors." The problem with that- very often the rich would get TOO rich, and someone would get a bigger army and take their stuff, or the poor would get too poor and have nothing left to lose, so they'd burn your castle down.

As a non-govt employee who is tired of govt employees doing their best to feather their own nest at the expense of the private sector, who really cares that bad economic decisions are finally impacting you? Did you think these dumb ideas Obama is implementing would keep screwing over only everyone else forever?

BMulligan: Shadowknight: what_now: I have 7 kinds of currency in my wallet. Not much, just a few bills (or coins) in low denominations. Why? Because it's farking cool.

Well, I had about 30 of each.  I always keep Euro and American on me, but we had just gotten back from Scotland and were SUPPOSED to go to Gibraltar for some sort of celebration of something or other.  A monkey, I guess?

Either way, I kind of made a last minute trip home, and had my wallet laden with foreign bills.  Which apparently makes the TSA grumpy.

In my experience, breathing is sufficient to make the TSA grumpy. When I flew to Salt Lake City for my dad's funeral a couple weeks ago, I got pulled aside for a "random" check. The guy who conducted the examination was a real pip, let me tell you. You'll be happy to know that I tested negative for explosives residue, though.



So...a friend of mine just visited the US from Germany. She's 29(this will be important in a moment). Besides the usual retarded questions("Are you planning to commit any terrorist acts while in the US?", "Are you planning to kidnap any American children", etc), they asked her one so utterly stupid that I have to bold and separate it to really let it sink in.

"Did you have any involvement in the mass murders committed by the Nazis in WW2?"


Upon pointing out that she was 29, and thus not alive when WW2 happened, the agent told her that didn't answer the question.
