    Rand Paul files bills that take aim at TSA - Burgess Everett - POLITICO.com

    The first bill they describe strikes me as being mostly pointless, but the second bill is certainly a step in the right direction.

    Not a single other member of congress would have had the audacity to introduce legislation like this, but nonetheless I'm supposed to be OUTRAGED that he endorsed Romney :rolleyes:

    All the more reason for Rand to make a few inroads with some of his more establishment colleagues.

    If he thinks endorsing some of those losers will help him push his agendas then I say more power to him.

    Right. These bills are clearly the work of a traitor.

    Good for Rand on this, however he knows they are going nowhere and so do his collegues.
    Just a statement at this point, nothing more.

    A statement about the number of statist scumbags we still have skulking around the halls of congress.

    The TSA is hugely unpopular. There's plenty of potential for constituent demand to sign on to this in all states, so that being the case I would say this is a great move. It's got to start somewhere.

    I agree regarding the first bill, but the second bill does strike me as being useful. You can object to it being called a "passenger bill of rights," but if they're going to ignore the actual Bill of Rights then something else has to be done.

    Sadly, you're correct. It won't get out of Congress.

    He wouldn't consider working for JOBS.

    Little twerp got his feelings hurt so he's going to whine about it and cost the taxpayers to do it.

    JOBS.

    I am so sick of the dam R's being against the US and against the US working class.
