    No-Fly List

    http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opi...957645514.html

    If you're on the No-Fly List, you can be effectively exiled from the US.

    There's no due process, no real appeal.

    Over 500 US citizens seem to be on the list.
    If all the atheists left the USA, it would lose 93% of the National Academy of Sciences, but less than 1% of the prison population.

    Obama makes me feel safer all the time!
    The legend of Doug Atkins was real:
    “Look, here’s some things I want you to remember,” Skornoski said. “Number 81 is Doug Atkins, he’s 6’9” and he weighs 265 pounds. He said DON’T CUT HIM, and if he falls down, help him up and say nice play, Mr. Atkins.”

    “Well, I (Curry) started to laugh,” Curry said.

    “Kid, this is not a joke, and I’m not kidding you now, because if you cut him, on his knees, the first thing he’s going to do is kill you, and then, he’s going to kill me.”

    It's secret, until they try to fly and are denied.

    Even then, the reasons are secret.

    Other than the Republican stupidities on FEMA, I don't see much difference between Obama and Republicans on homeland security at all.

    This is not a good thing.
