ID to Fly? Not If You're an Illegal

A seven-minute local news story (Las Vegas)!!

(Evidently reporters actually report on Government stupidity in Vegas.)

Federal Air Marshals are concerned that illegals fly out of Vegas regularly without proper identification.

You're taking off your shoes, allowing your luggage to be rifled, and maintaining sheep-like stances in lines?

You must be a US citizen!


By the way, it's not the Mexicans the Air Marshals worry about. It's the Middle Easterners.

As you might expect, Homeland Security doesn't give a rip...

Frightening....but not surprising.

I recently returned from Israel. The Israeli Airport in Tel Aviv is reported to be one of the safest air ports in the world. Interestingly, we didn't have to take our shoes off or shove our liquids in a 3 oz container.

Homeland security is basically a theater to convince us that we are safe. We spend a fortune on it and get nothing but inconveniences in return.

Not so fast, SuperId.

We have a JOBS program there...

Not just jobs, taxoayer-supported Union jobs.

But seriously, Super is right. I see nothing gained from TSA or Homeland Security.

We actually have a pretty good media here, with trhe exception of a former Madison TV anchor hack.
The main newspaper is conservative and the TV stations do break a lot of stories. Much better than milwaukee.
