I am not, nor have I ever been a politician, but I sure know that lying to any sworn member of federal law enforcement is a felony. That is one reason for the face-to-face meeting with a TSA agent for TSA pre check or Global Traveler credentials. If something happens later, they have you on a felony, and its recorded.

WTF is wrong with politicians?

Trump convinced them that they were all above the law.

Yes. They're being shocked into reality.

I got PreCheck and my wife got Global Entry. I only had to provide documents in person to a third party screening company for PreCheck, not directly to a government agency. My wife did need to meet in person with TSA for Global Entry.

Thanks. I knew at least one involved a face to face with The Man.

Our face-to-face for global entry was mainly to get our fingerprints electronically copied for the airport kiosk. Otherwise, it was just unrelated small talk, took 10 minutes for both of us combined (not counting the 90 minute drive to get there).

Gohmert sounds like a crazy person these days. Everything he says is irrational.

It's like they're all completely disconnected from reality. All of them. All sides. It'd sure be nice to clean house this fall, but all the kookbiscuits lined up as possible replacements are 100x worse.

Good people don't last for long as politicians.

That's an actual quote, not a forum editorialization.

I had to follow the link to get the 'actual' quote.

Maybe I shouldn't be by now, but I'm stunned.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I think the sea change we’ve seen, that has badly damaged the country, is over the last few years Trump, and others (and yes, I’ve come to believe that includes foreign state elements) have normalized the adoption of one’s most noxious thoughts and positions as one’s public persona.

There is no ‘inside voice’ anymore. There are no longer things you don’t say out loud. Everything but the nuts and bolts planning of criminal activity is out on the table.

It is now conceivable that, if the course is not reversed soon, the arrival of some ‘Great Unifer’ perhaps, we could suffer the collapse of the country.

An overstatement? I’m not sure such a thing is possible anymore.



National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
As of July 16, 2022, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is now available by simply dialing 988. The previous number, 1-800-273-8255, will remain active.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

It's a change from just sounding like a stupid person all of the time.

I guess Boebert stole that crown from him.

That is why we all should be Republicans. Home fee. Louie said so.

I think he was a judge before he became a politician who’s mouth equals Another Republican named Rudy.
