New TSA Outrage: CONgress Exempts Itself from ALL 'Security' Measures!

Maybe this news will finally piss off the 'peons.'

"No Security Pat-Downs for Boehner"
By JEFF ZELENY

3:37 p.m. | Updated Representative John A. Boehner, soon to be the Speaker of the House, has pledged to fly commercial airlines back to his home district in Ohio. But that does not mean that he will be subjected to the hassles of ordinary passengers, including the controversial security pat-downs.

As he left Washington on Friday, Mr. Boehner headed across the Potomac River to Reagan National Airport, which was bustling with afternoon travelers. But there was no waiting in line for Mr. Boehner, who was escorted around the metal detectors and body scanners, and taken directly to the gate.

Mr. Boehner, who was wearing a casual yellow sweater and tan slacks, carried his own bags and smiled pleasantly at passengers who were leaving the security checkpoint inside the airport terminal. It was unclear whether any passengers waiting in the security line, including Representative Allen Boyd, a Florida Democrat who lost his re-election bid, saw Mr. Boehner.

forget filming disgruntled travelers..

train the camera on those who bypass..(i.e, i have seen several mentions of spotting al gore sailing thru)..get any politican or high profile personality who 'sails' past security..now THAT would be the video that NEEDS TO GO VIRAL.

yup,

like the orange alien, and FULL TIME George Hamilton impersonator, one Mr.BONER.

HERE IS HOW TO END TSA

Paranoid sychophantic schizoids.

Mulit media lies and distractions.

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

I'm really surprised they let him slip through.

It seems most of the TSA agents couldn't wait to get their hands on Mr. Boner.

Name-calling

The problem with jokes about names is that they aren't really funny when you realize that each person got their name from their parents. They probably got teased all their life, and yet, did not have their name changed, but kept it, which is a sign they honor their family (if the last name, then for many generations).

It's a low blow to tease about something one can't change, like a limp or a scar, and joking about a name is similarly cruel. Imagine his children reading this post.

There's a difference between making a point about the hypocricy of this politician and making fun of him using name-calling or ridicule involving something he was born with.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

indeed, that IS true.

However, it is also often observed that most people live up to their names.

For instance, Dr. Ronald ERNEST Paul, is his full name. And I'd say, he's certainly living up to his middle name, very well.

Boehner, which I'm assuming is German in origin, should be pronounced more like 'BANE-r' or 'BAY-ner.'

Of course, none of the following can be fully verified, unless we trace Boehner's own family history, or in the unlikely chance that he actually provides his own family tree/ancestry record to us, then compare that with publicly available records, but here are what some available online info suggest:

Boehner Name Meaning and History

1. occupational name from an agent derivative of Middle Low German bönen ‘to board’, ‘to lay a floor’
2. topographic name for someone who lived in a loft, a variant of Boehne + the suffix -er denoting an inhabitant.

http://genealogy.familyeducation.com/surname-origin/boehner

Last name origins & meanings:

1. North German (Böhner): occupational name from an agent derivative of Middle Low German bönen ‘to board’, ‘to lay a floor’
2. North German (Böhner): topographic name for someone who lived in a loft, a variant of Boehne + the suffix -er denoting an inhabitant.

IF so, he's certainly not laying down any sound flooring. Craftsmanship SUCKS, even by Statist standards. If anything, he's acting like a DEAD-BEAT Renter, or a mere loft-dweller whom leeches off of other more productive individuals. THAT sounds much more fitting.

The following suggests his family name is derived more from the Czech/German border region, as in BoHEMIA fame.
"Boehner Coat of Arms / Boehner Family Crest" http://www.4crests.com/boehner-coat-of-arms.html

Hesus Cristos, and then, there's the issue of his obnoxious tear theater.

Of course, there are DEFINITELY moments in life when even the strongest of amongst us is moved to tears, but to cry on cue just to sell some BS rhetoric that he OBVIOUSLY doesn't even believe in, that is just so despicably low.

Perhaps Boehner should just ask one of his rich corporatist donors to buy him a set of balls. What a FAKE piece of SH*T this idiot is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ir1UABBe1v4

Besides, suggested Bohemian Family Crest or not, personally, I don't see anything noble about this BONEhead.

Regardless of his family name, John Boehner is a statist douche, working hard to fulfill the wishes of his NWO.Wall St.Bankster overlords, that alone put him into an irrevocable box only comprised of sychophantic turds.

He voted FOR the Wall St.Bail-outS. I think his loyalties are clear; it's certainly NOT with We the People, NOR the Republic.

I respect your opinion

But I will continue to call him by whatever name I wish. And you are right, he probably comes from a long line of Boners and can't help it.

My Goodness... Politicians,

My Goodness... Politicians, many of whom can be bought off now,using taxpayer money wherever they fly,should particularly be more susceptible to security screening just on their corruptibility alone.

Realize This is only to affect the "unwashed middle classes"

Low income people rarely if ever fly anywhere, if they do it is a rare experience and therefore they will not consider it quite the same imposition as one whom flys often. I fear they, the working poor, would jump up and down on one leg if they were told as much was required for clearance by the TSA.
Upper middle class and above most often charter or utilize air taxi's, flexibility in schedules as well as in landing strips make a 6-8 passenger twin prop or take the Turbo prop for longer flights/pressurized cabin.
The lack of humanity by the govt is going to turn more and more people away from commercial air travel.

The Liberty a society retains is inversely proportional to the number of Lawyers in the Government.

I understand the point of the

I understand the point of the post, however after we were all created equal that's where the commonality ended. We live in a competitive society, and as much as some folks don't like to be reminded of it, money, power and influence matter. Sure, you might like to believe you're good as the next guy... but if the next guy is a billionaire, the head of a political organization, or a great actor... you might be wrong... they actually might be better than you. :)

I reserve the right to determine whether someone else.....

...is "better than" me. It is not others right to decide that for anyone else.

Have you ever met someone with an IQ 30 points less than you?

It is not about being "better" but about being different. My husband and I both score in the "genius" realm - there are LOTS of people who CAN NOT understand us, not matter how hard we try to explain. They have gifts, but among them is NOT the capacity to understand the intellects of those whose gifts are intellectual.

Here is the hard part... once you realize the person is never going to grasp what you are trying to relay, what do you do? Stop talking to them? Let them believe they convinced you that their completely illogical nonsense is true?

This is the article that got my posting privileges revoked:

demolay, you can decide to reserve any right that you wish.

Unfortunately, that doesn't mean anyone will pay any attention to your decision.

Call 911

Call 911 and report a security breach. After all, everyone needs to be vigilant and report suspicious activities.

'All animals are equal but some animals are more equal.....

....than others.'We have to stop elitism, it is killing our society.

nice!

lol

Some are more equal than others.

Keep up the good posts.

Positively infuriating, but.....

Does that mean that Ron Paul

Does that mean that Ron Paul is exempt too? Because I've heard him complain about going through TSA and how awful it is. I guess that is one upside to this, at least our guy can be on his way without molestation and radiation.

Ron Paul is probably exempt from this exemption!....

knowing these people.

I bet Rand Paul will be, too!

I take exemption to your exemption!

Now you have compound exemptions.

Exempting themselves from Obamacare, Social Security, ....

Going to Jail, and now this.

They seem to be acting like elitists.

Congress exempts itself from

Congress exempts itself from all "security"?
Congress exempts itself from Obamacare?

It seems that all Congress can do is to force communism down our throats while holding themselves on a different plane.

Do these people sound like they understand what it means to be a PUBLIC SERVANT?

Congress is exempt from

From gun laws.
Traffic violations.
The list goes on.
