Well, At Least The President’s Consistent

“If you’re too dangerous to board a plane, you’re too dangerous to buy a gun.” President Obama is calling on Congress to close a dangerous firearm loophole.

The President is speaking of the ‘loophole’ of The No-Fly List, wherein one may be assigned without knowledge or the ability to appeal for removal.

Of course, we now live in a nation wherein one may be stopped and questioned, frisked, asked regarding one’s citizenship and/or sobriety. And have one’s private communication’s intercepted.  Or may even be imprisoned by a secret court in a secret location, for an indeterminate amount of time.

And perhaps tortured while so incarcerated.

In the name of national security.

So, the President is being consistent with his continuing with the previous administration’s policies, and addition of his own.

Roberta Ecks said it best (on FB):

Roberta Ecks Denial of civil rights without due process, via a secret list you’re not allowed to know if you’re on and for which there is no means to clear your name (unless you’re a U.S. Senator), is this really a direction we should be going in?

If the people on the “no-fly” a/k/a “terror watch” list are so dangerous, why are they out walking around? They can buy gasoline and matches anywhere — and tanks full of butane.

AMEN, Sistuh!  Preach it!

At least until they put you away somewhere…

But wait, there’s more!

THIS from Irish (in part)…

 They are pushing hard to strip the last of our rights from us, on the off chance Hildabeast doesn’t get elected.
Not that it matters. To them, we are the enemy.

These are the people supposedly in charge of protecting the country.
Yet we are supposed to trust the fed in believing that denying people on the watch list as a reasonable course of action.
Except, no one is allowed to see the list.
No one is allowed to know how you got on the list.
No one is able, for the most part, to get off the list.
No due process, no evidence – just because!
Hell, even Ted Kennedy was on the No Fly List, and it took him WEEKS to get pulled off of it.

Reasonable?
I don’t friggin’ think so!

  1. This scares me… Who knows who is really on that list and why???

  2. *A secret list.
    *No due process.
    *No way of knowing if you’re on it, why, or how to get off of it.
    *Run by bureaucrats with zero oversight.
    What could possibly go wrong??
    If you disagree, you obviously should be *on* the list.

    I would bet a good chunk of $$ that if you donate to the DNC at one of President Dipstick’s fundraisers you get a free pass.
    Our once great Constitutional Republic is just a mere shadow of its former self. The dolts in charge are supported by legions of dolts.

  3. I know someone who can’t buy a gun in this state because of a court case that hasn’t been adjudicated. The problem is that there never was such a case. But some computer entry somewhere says there was and he is trapped in a bureaucratic mess where no matter what his lawyer does to prove that there never was a case, the response is that he can’t buy a gun here until that case is cleared off the books.

    Lists are only as good as the people creating and maintaining them. That’s even BEFORE you get to the issue of denying rights to a citizen based on a suspicion.
