"They Thought They Were Free"

Each step was so small, so inconsequential, so well explained or, on occasion, ‘regretted,’ that unless one understood what the whole thing was in principle, what all these ‘little measures’. . . must some day lead to, one no more saw it developing from day to day than a farmer in his field sees the corn growing. . . . Each act. . . is worse than the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for one great shocking occasion, thinking that others, when such a shock comes, will join you in resisting somehow. —Milton Mayer, - “They Thought They Were Free.“ The Germans: 1938-1945. The Americans: 2000-present.

TSA Confiscates Sci-Fi Ray Gun Belt Buckle

Because it was "kind of shaped like a gun"
In their latest display of insanity, TSA agents at LAX airport confiscated a belt buckle from prominent videographer Sean Malone, telling him that the reason was it is “kind of shaped like a gun.”
TSA’s idea of “replica” weapons has, in the past, included a toy monkey holding a 2 inch plastic toy guna steam punk watch, a perfume bottlea photographer’s blowerAluminium foilpeanut butter, candy pies and cupcakes.
There’s nothing more comforting than seeing government agents keeping America safe from deadly confectionaries.
Meanwhile, people are routinely waltzing through security lines with swords, knives, explosives and guns. Of course, many agents are too busy groping women and searching old people’s diapers to bother checking for anything else.

Know that your Goverment is keeping you safe from terrorist with belt buckle ray guns.

Why Do We Elect Mean Spirited People?

Don't Let Them Eat Cake: More U.S. Cities Are Banning Feeding the Homeless
