AMonkey'sUncle: Note to people: If Rmoney and rAYN win in November all your petty arguments and temper tantrums will be in vail, because you'll be too busy looking in dumpsters for food.

The only people who win are the rich and pundits, whose fortunes depend on fomenting outrage between the two sides. And most of them are rich, so...

When I want to throw tantrums and argue with the rich, I usually go to aspen. But if vail works for you, go for it.

Come on, guys:

These machines see through your clothing. What could be more transparent than that?

randomjsa: As I said when the subject of the petition came up.

Do you honestly think anyone in government doesn't know that we have a problem with the TSA? The TSA has been in violation of a court order for months now and nobody is doing a thing about it.

OWS and Tea Party... This should be your new target.

The politicians on both sides of the aisle have really stepped on their dicks with this one. they have created and environment where any opponent can go after them as "soft on terrorism" if they relax any of these dumbass regs - and if they do and "something" happens, they're relly screwd.
But they know they have to get rid of this shiat - people hate it.
You can lie to Americans, cheat them, steal from them, and desecrate their dearest values right in front of them, and they'll just burp and turn up the sound on "Dancing With the Stars" - but heaven help your poor political ass if you inconvenience them.
So they have created quite a little pickle for themselves - it will be amusing to see them try to work it out.

tenpoundsofcheese: Weaver95: tenpoundsofcheese: Another "surprise" from the President who promised transparency.

The only surprise actually is that people believed in his hopey changey schtick. you think we should cut back on TSA funding and chop down their regulations to something reasonable..?

Don't threadjack. This isn't about the TSA.

This is about the actions of President Hopey Changey administration becoming even less transparent and subverting the goal voice of the people by pulling down this petition

/you sound tired. you okay?

Obama should have used his presidential powers to keep the petition up past the date it was expired at, this is an injustice beyond anything that has been done before. You are absolutley right this needs a full investigation, Issa is asleep at the wheel here. This may call for UN intevention. Never before in the history of our country has something on a website been removed when it said it was going to be.

O no, they have angered the hive mind of Reddit.

And it will last until the next cat picture or facebook drama distracts them.
