Strip and Spread 'Em, Grandma!


Some overzealous Airport Gestapo have taken to disrobing, patting down and groping travelers whose only offense is trying to get on a regularly scheduled airline flight. When our nanny government gets to the point of subjecting your grandma to a full body cavity search before she can get on the bus to ride downtown to the senior center, we will know that this country is no longer fit for a free people to live in. Before it goes that far, we will surely have conceded victory in the so called "War on Terror" to Osama Bin Laden, because he will have succeeded in converting this formerly free nation into a totalitarian state. One sure hopes that we are not too far down that path already.
