A prominent talk radio host and author who has had previous run ins with the TSA noted Sunday that many TSA agents are wearing their identification badges upside down, making it more difficult for travelers and anyone attempting to film the agents to identify them ahead of the Infowars led Opt Out And Film Campaign this week.

...If you see a TSA 'agent' with an upside-down badge...

...tell them you are proud of them for joining in the protest...

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

People should start working

People should start working to put measures on the ballot that would outlaw the actions of TSA - specifically the unwarranted sexual gropings.

Marijuana initiatives are passing all around the Country. I have a hard time believing that people wouldn't vote for a law that prohibits someone else from grabbing a person in places that they shouldn't be grabbing.

Anyone in CO want to start working to draft legislation?

The Texas Travel Freedom Act

The state legislator in texas has a Bill, House Bill 80 "The Texas Travel Freedom Act."

Yeah, I linked to that. But

Yeah, I linked to that.

But for my home state of Colorado, I believe we would need to get the question on the ballot.

Sorry Adam...didn't see that.

I flew last week out of IAH

I flew last week out of IAH in Houston. After I showed my ID and boarding pass to the TSA agent she told me not to take my camera out until through the security line. At first I didn't understand a word she said, but I realized it as I continued on. If I'm not mistaken, you're allowed to film their operations.

How long are we going to let this shit go on?

Seriously. Not we as a country, we as citizens. It's quite clear the government has no plans to stop this, so when are we going to stop it for them?

As long as we allow it to.

Maybe we should start mounting our car license plates on

upside down as well? As a symbol of unity or defiance?

Hmmm....

According to Texas Law as I'm reading it, it appears that mounting your plates upside down may not be a violation of the law...well this law at least! I'm not sure if this is the only statute addressing mounting license plates in Texas, but his could be a fun way to get pulled over...if you're into that kind of stuff!

If enough of us did it, it would keep them very busy

Just keep a screw driver in the car to remount them when pulled over. If you really want to have fun, when you get pulled over ask for a copy of the regulation that says they have to be mounted upright.

That's what we used to think

That's what we used to think about the drug laws, back in the '60s. Just look at "the drug war" to see how badly that failed. B-b

More info on the topic...

Turns out, due to a clerical error with the most recent law, it may not even be crime to NOT display plates in Texas! Am I reading this correctly?!

Where does this leave the state of license plate laws in Texas, beginning January 1, 2012? The law, in Section 504.943, says that it is an offense to operate a vehicle without the required plates. A court may dismiss a charge against a defendant for driving a vehicle that does not display two license plates if the defendant remedies the defect before the defendant’s first court appearance and pays an administrative fee not to exceed $10.9 Clearly, the bill was intended to just renumber the offense. Unfortunately, it is now an offense for which there is no penalty. Is an offense without a penalty even an offense? On October 19, 2011, Rep. Pickett requested an attorney general opinion to answer the following question: Whether it is a Class C misdemeanor not to display two license plates on a motor vehicle? The request asserts that “the portion of H.B. 2357 that separates license plates from registration did not specifically include the penalty language of the offense being
a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine not to exceed $200. A general penalty was meant to be added similar to those that appear in Chapter 502 . . . and Chapter 520 . . . but was inadvertently left out of the bill.”

Some states have a default

Some states have a default penalty for each class of offense, applicable when a law doesn't call out an explicit penalty of its own.
