Still taking those shoes off at the airport, aren't ya? (almost 20 years now)

For a terrorist attack that never even happened. The guy failed.

If he succeeded in making us all take our shoes off in every security line for the rest of humanity I'd say he succeeded.

booblitchutz 32 points ago +32 / -0

True. I guess I mean he didn’t blow anything up. In fact he had has face caved in by passengers on that plane when he tried to ignite it.

I wonder if people today would be brave enough to beat the everloving dogshit out of a guy trying to light a match on a plane? Or would they just call him “stunning and brave”?

Depends what airline? A Russian one? He's getting put in a wheelchair. If there were Armenians on that plane he would wish he were dead. (I only say that because I am Russian Armenian but call myself American first.) I'm sure some other cultures would be less forgiving too.

Sure there are a few groups that would make life hard on a failed terrorist....

Having worked along side quite a few bosinan and albanian vets from the 90s and hear the stories and seen some of their wounds.... I wouldn't want to be stuck in a room of them after failing to kill them that's for sure lol

German/Scandinavian - ohh, I am so sorry that you have lived such an oppressed life that you feel the need to blow up your shoes. I am so sorry for your pain, please, here is my daughter to help you feel better

Not enough information; need to know the “guys” race and how they vote before that determination can be made.

why dont they make people take their weaves or dreadlocks off? you could easily have toxic chemicals in dreadlocks that would ignite like a molotov

Honestly how we cam trust non sedated passengers is beyond me. The ideas people can have. They should be drugged up strapped down and shipped upright for maximum efficiency.

What is even dumber is just before you check anyone for anything you cram 5 planes worth of people in a big group.

till taking those shoes off at the airport, aren't ya?

No, I paid my $85 good-boy-bux to TSA so they could spend less than ten minutes with me in a shitty back room, take my picture, and ask no questions so I can have the privilege of passing through airport security the same way I did in Q1 2001. Good thing they verified that I'm not a terrorist - a white male with zero felonies, misdemeanors, or parking tickets, a credit score of >830 and a clearance, who flies 200k miles a year for the last five years.

That’s all they do? Here I was thinking you’d have to be fingerprinted and have more of your privacy violated somehow than walking through the naked picture machine.

Sorry, you do have to be fingerprinted, but they already had mine. Which is why it was nonsensical that I should have to pay or take my shoes off.

FakeNewsandFakeMeat 23 points ago +23 / -0

20 years? That's nothing. In 1936 there was a flood that destroyed Johnstown PA. In order to aid with the rebuild the state passed an emergency 10% liquor tax. By 1942 the state had generated the necessary funds to rebuild the city but the tax continued. In 1951 the state bumped the tax rate to 18%. Here today, 84 years after the flood and 78 after they recuperated funds the state of PA still collects that "emergency" tax, taking over $300 million per year from tax payers.

Gas tax was only supposed to be during WWII IIRC. And the rubber tax on tires.

Income tax in the U.K. was to pay off the war debt from fighting, Napoleon. Two hundred years later still have that tax.

2
darkgwalchmei 2 points ago +2 / -0

Temporary Gas tax was imposed to reduce deficit for the Great Depression, when it was set to expire Congress voted to extend and increase it due to Prohibition, when Prohibition ended, it dropped back to the initial tax rate, then with World War 2 it was increased again to the Prohibition rate, then after the war, it was made permanent

A homogeneous group of people with the same politics would be allowed through without checking shit as long as those people are peaceful.

Basically we’d all be able to fly if it wasn't for retards with shit ideologies and violent behaviors.

This goes a lot further but people in general fail to understand the concept. NEVER give up your personal sovereignty, especially over your MIND. I see people all jazzed about neuralink and transhumanism in general, they fail to see its all a scam to control. Its like the trojan horse all over again but because its repackaged no one semms to be able to recognize it. If the states and government won't even relinquish an outdated tax law, what do you think will happen when technology gives them direct access to your brain? Humanity should never go this route, ever ever ever.

The worst part here is the fact that people think the government can TAKE your rights.. as if they gave them to you. They fucking didnt. Those rights are limitations ON the GOVT. We preserve or relinquish them. All of this, is our fault. Vote better.

I remember when those little armrest ashtrays were used for ashes and the no smoking sign had a purpose. I remember taking my long gun aboard and stowing it in the first class coat closet. (Ammo was in checked baggage. They asked me if it was loaded but never even looked at the rifle or luggage.)

During the lockdown in New Zealand you we’re allowed to buy textbooks or “self-help” books online, but not fiction. I thought that had to be fake when I heard it but no it’s true.

So NZ elected a socialist PM, and so far she has: taken away their guns, banned fiction, opened gulags (for Covid infected people, like it or not), and “postponed” the election. Well, you get what you voted for!!

Wreckonteur 8 points ago +8 / -0

Are you talking about fiction for an educational setting, or did they literally ban all fiction works?

7
mingram 7 points ago +7 / -0

They banned delivering "non essentials" which includes fiction books. Book stores were forced to close. So, they didn't technically ban fiction, but effectively did.

5
MsAnthropic 5 points ago +5 / -0

School texts were allowed, but they banned the online purchase of fiction books. Because they’re “non-essential”: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8243605/Jacinda-Arderns-ban-fiction-order-self-help-books.html

I've seen these statist idiots flat out support this totalitarian police state because they believe that most people are just "too stupid to follow the science."

The projection is alarming. Basically, I'm too stupid to interpret information on my own so I think that authorities should interpret it for me and everyone else.
