The face palm is a classic of non-verbal communication. Sometimes, someone does something so stupid, there really aren’t words for it. So instead of speaking all you can really do is put your face in your palm and wonder if Darwin had it wrong when he assumed humans were evolving upwards.
With the Obama regime, there are a lot of face palms. And of course, they are doing it again. To err is human but to reach this level of stupidity, you need the Obama regime.
In Detroit, TSA agents harassed a man named Drew Mandy getting on a flight to Florida. The twenty nine year old man had trouble complying with the TSA instructions. The reason the man had trouble complying was that he is mentally disabled and functions at the level of a two year old. The twenty nine year old man wears adult diapers because of his handicap and that is certainly something that should legitimately be checked out. But then the TSA decided they were going to confiscate his six-inch plastic toy hammer. Yes, I am sure a terrorist boarding a plane is going to use a six-inch plastic toy hammer to attack the flight crew.
When the man had trouble following the TSA employees’ orders, his father, who was taking him to Disney World, tried to tell the TSA about his son’s disabilities. The TSA reply should be a classic, right up there with, “we are from the government. We are here to help you. Trust us.”
The TSA employees told the man to back away, saying (and don’t laugh when you read this), “Please sir, we know what we are doing.”
That guy should try out for open mic night at the comedy club.
The TSA has no clue as to what they are doing. Neither does the Department of Homeland Security, the clown of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano or of course Obama.
This same week, Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell released a letter he sent to the chief clown at DHS, Janet Napolitano, complaining about DHS’ lack of action on his request that 28 state police officers be trained to assist in the Department’s 287(g) program. The 287(g) program allows police officers to be trained by Immigration and Customs, so that when someone is arrested for a criminal offense and there is some reason to believe that they might not be in the country legally (no identification, can’t speak English), the police can check with immigration and if the person is in the country illegally, an immigration detainer can be placed on them.
Of course the Obama regime has all but put a halt to deporations of illegals, but still they could be at least temporarily jailed.
Perhaps someone should remind the Obama regime that at least three of the 9/11 hijackers had overstayed their visas. At least one of them was stopped by the police while he was in this country illegally. Who knows? Had the police been able to arrest him for the immigration violation, 9/11 might not have happened.
Of course it is worth remembering that six months after 9/11 the government approved a student visa for the ringleader of the 9/11 attacks. I know some government workers are not the sharpest knives in the drawer but you would think the name Mohammad Atta would have rung a few bells back then!
Perhaps DHS should spend a little more time on enforcing our immigration laws and that might help keep America safer than TSA fast food rejects harassing a mentally handicapped man.
How many Americans would still be alive today if DHS and the Obama regime took seriously their constitutional duties to protect this country? Perhaps Houston Police Officer Kevin Will would be. Kevin Will was killed earlier this month by a twice deported illegal alien. The illegal was drunk and slammed his car into Will, who moments before impact pushed a civilian out of harms way. At the time of his death, Will’s wife was six months pregnant.
2012 is coming and we will vote these clowns out of office. Voting them out of office is not nearly enough. When the Republicans took over after the 2000 election, George Bush swept all of the Democratic mischief under the rug. No more. We need someone who will come in, dismantle all of the socialist apparatus the Obama regime has put in place and indict some former members of the Obama regime for what they have done to America.
As for Drew Mandy, his toy hammer, which he had carried for twenty years, ended up in the trash. His parents were given the option of trying to mail it back to their home, but they would have missed their flight if they had tried to do that.
Perhaps Drew was the one with the last laugh. His mother, also on the trip, had put a back up plastic hammer in her backpack and that went through TSA screening without a problem.
...WHAT blows me away practically everyday, is the incompetence all up and down the line of elected officials and appointees. Just the other day, the blonde woman in charge of the DNC, what's her name? Wasserman? Said, with a straight face, the "Republicans think illegal immigration is a crime." Huh? I'm reading and hearing stuff like this everyday!
...at least 2 generations, working on a 3rd, that have been indoctrinated.
...conservatives have remained "viable" only because it's our money, our work, that sustains everyone else...
What blows me away...is that we all whine amoung ourselves about problems that are obvious to us...but don't spend much time addressing the real problem...his supporters. We need to spend more time in "outreach" to our ignorant zombie fellow citizens that have fallen under the spell of Progressive propaganda.
We need to chill out a bit, and get control of our passions and our tongues... so that we don't start off our conversations with,
"Look you misguided idiot, you're high on Progressive cool-aide, which is adverely affecting you're only half a primate brain, you have become a socialist Obama puppet ...NOW listen to me as I amaze you with the facts"
Obama, like Adolf Hitler understands how to sway the masses to get what he wants.
"All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach."
We need to be smarter than that...smart enough to teach instead of threaten... smart enough to be compassionate of the misguided. Wise enough to lead, not insult and threaten. Strong enough to hold our tempers in check and our brains clear to discuss our beliefs without losing it...and any hope of changing the hearts and minds of the masses...
Its not Obama who is the Hitler...It is Soros....
Obama is brainwashed just as the Germans were brainwashed and looked the other way or became the murderers...
Obama was elected, not Soros. And even if Obama is nothing more than a Soros pupit...we can put an end to Obama's negative impact by removing Obama from office.
How, pray tell...do you remove Soros?
Work on the problems you can solve, not those that lead you down dark alleys
It is just best to have your eyes wide open...
They all need to go back under the rocks and back into the woodwork!
But we just have to always remember that they are always there wanting to destroy us. This is what Israel does...
