Rand Paul vs the TSA

I finally read all the posts/news stories etc concerning Rand Paul being held up by the TSA..REALLY?? He held himself up. I have had 4 body-pats from false alarms....alarm goes off they take you in a windowed room (normally) and they pat you down.... Rand Paul chose to NOT allow the pat-down....why???

I have always needed to get on my plane, and knowing the alarm was false, I gladly spread my arms and legs and let them pat away!! Am I correct in thinking as a common citizen I could never use my cell phone, but he was allowed too, or did they get upset he just did it? http://dailycaller.com/2012/01/23/rand-paul-on-tsa-detainment-i-was-barked-at-do-not-leave-the-cubicle/

Anyhow, why do our elected officials think they are above us, the common citizens?? I have to follow the rules, and I do it with a smirk on my face, or a smile, depends on my PMS...but really, this is the news for this week?


  1. welcome to blogging, sella. hope you enjoy it as much as the rest of us do.

  2. Hey Sella...welcome to the crazy world of blogging! I have to warn you, it becomes addictive after a while!

    One thing about it, you'll meet a lot of the "common citizens" that all have pretty much the same values!

    I'm gonna add you to the blogroll over at my place, OK?

  3. I think he was being opportunistic. He wanted to make a point about what he thought was excessive screening and he was not in a terrible hurry. I would make a bet that if he had really needed to be where that plane was going to land then he would have gotten the pat down and never said a word to the cameras.

  4. TY everyone. I am not sure where this blog will go, and I am sure I will have a lot to learn. But it seems fun and I will try to keep my boring life in Iowa interesting..:) Thanks again for the warm welcome.

  5. Always nice to find a fresh point of view to read and consider, and if the Hermit recomends you, well that is good enough for me.
