Skip to comments.TSA Asking About Secession Petition (vanity)
Posted on 11/13/2012 7:33:23 PM PST by TigerClaws
Buddy flying DC to Louisiana was asked if he'd signed the petition to secede at WhiteHouse.gov.
Surprised that's being treated as anything as political theater. Do they ask people if they are members of Occupy Wall Street or Code Pink?
They are making their lists and checking them twice...
...just wait `till they unfurl their new policy of body cavity searches for “ammunition or drugs.”
Great way for .gov to get lists, just put up a petition like cheese to mice.
That didn’t take long.
Are you sure your friend wasn’t just pulling your leg?
Just got back from flying and TSA only asked me what I had strapped to my crotch because it was glowing on the xray.
Say no but scream YES YES during the patdown.
OK, I’ll bite, (and I acknowledge that may be a turn of phrase I should eschew) what did you have strapped to your crotch that glowed on the X-ray?
And just yesterday I said I was afraid to sign a petition because I didn’t want to end up on the no-fly list.
If this is true more reports of it will be coming in.
Sign the petition and you too can become tagged as a domestic terrorist. The no-fly lists weren’t long enough I suppose.
Asked BY WHOM?
Please answer the question.
And if he was asked by an official of any kind at the
airport, what did he answer, and what was the response to
Asked by TSA if he’d signed the petition. Thought the title explained it. He said no he had not.
They are up for 30 states. Sure many others will be asked if it is on their lost of things to ask. Surprise posting here isn’t on the list.
Been on the lists for decades, good company there!
“What secession petition, sir?”
“What secession petition, sir?”
Lists? So are we :).
I had thought of taking a flight after painting a silhouette of a 1911 on my waist using silver metallic paint!
It ought to get me a guaranteed room and board for my remaining years.

Even better, like peanut butter to mice, but you’re right, these petitions are serving the gestapo well.
I actually got asked three times today. Once while paying my county property tax, once at the weigh station on the interstate, and once by my priest during confession.
"No, I did not. They want to leave peacefully, and I think we should kick your asses first."
I do not know nothing there. ;-)
She showed me the xray and my crotch was glowing, I also got swiped for explosives.
The woman standing behind me, yelled and said “she is not a threat, get real”.
They pulled her aside for a full search.
I have had my shoulder glow, because I have pins in it, but my crotch....never before (maybe I am entering into a new phase of my life)
You told everyone that it was none of their business right?
LOL, now that is funny!
They don’t need to burden the TSA with this, harassing citizens who annoy the government is what the IRS is for. And with all the new agents that Obamacare will be bringing on board, they’ll probably be able to haul every secession petition signer in for a complete audit and body cavity search.
No, have you got one handy?
Looks to me like folks are free to petition however they feel aggrieved.
Of course, I'm just a cook, reading the plain language, not a constitutional scholar.
The wonder woman phase?
Wow, and I’ll wager they’re quickly getting the names of everyone who signed the petitions.
Of course. But this “petition” stuff setup by Obama’s comrades on his website is nothing more than a mockery of the constitution. No good can come of it.
I don’t grok this fully, but can’t anybody put any sort of petition up there? Why not put up our own mockeries. Let’s petition for 40 acres and a unicorn.
On one hand, if they push it, and declare signers terrorists, that's what they will create. On the other, this is really bad PR for government and all parties in general, if they don't intend to push it.
Not much a cook can do about their choice.
I do refuse to despair.
I’m in the middle of 35 treatments for prostate cancer. Wonder if I’ll glow at the airport. I’ll find out if there’s any residue Dec 26.
Yup. I want a free Obama phone, free birth control, free socks and free lunch. It’s my right. Especially the socks. All of God’s children deserve unholy socks!!
No justice, no peace!!
I don’t think the body cavity searches should merely be confined to airports anymore.
If, as a nation, we’re really concerned about domestic, home-grown terrorists, it seems to me that the TSA should go by everyone’s domicile weekly in armed teams to conduct thorough searches. I think we should expect nothing less from our protectors.
Indeed, if only the government could control every aspect of our lives, down to and including bowel movement times and masses... then we could truly live in a free utopia.
I told ‘em I’d sign, as long as I didn’t have to show a photo ID.....
“Indeed, if only the government could control every aspect of our lives, down to and including bowel movement times and masses... then we could truly live in a free utopia.
And “indeed” back at ya’!
I do believe that’s exactly the direction they AND our bowel movements are heading in. So much in sync, in fact, that I can hardly tell the difference between them any more.
Pretty soon all Romney voters will be subjected to extra searches.
EVERYONE should tell them yes.
They have you name and email address if you signed it.....
With wide, innocent eyes: "I have to sign a petition at the White House before I can fly?"
(I'm flying this weekend. I'm a great granny. I can play real innocent. What do I know about petitions...)
I didn’t sign it. U. S. would collapse it states split up. Not convinced what’d replace it would be any better. Likely chaos and civil war.
And each of those states would have issues of trade, tariffs, monetary base, the feds coming after them for things that the feds claim to own.....I just wish these folks would put their energy into building a friggin ground game that can win against the dims
Well, I am surprised. Of course they can keep these little “inquiries” few and far between until their point is made that anyone who signed the petition ‘may’ be in some potential trouble. It’s obviously a way of nipping the
“movement”, such as it is, or might be, in the bud.
Yeah, let’s keep slamming our heads into the brick wall of the electoral process.
The ballot box of liberty was officially closed nov 6.
As much as people want to secede....that will never end well. That has already been played out. O is in charge of all sorts of nasty things that can and will kill all those who oppose him. (The only question is when not if).
I agree that liberty died a bitter death this November. I will keep on trying and working to change that but somethings are so obviously dumb I will not participate. To put my name and info on a petition to the goons in charge (who by the way will do nothing about the petitions except perhaps take names and get even) does not seem like a logical thing to be done at this point.
RE: “They have you name and email address if you signed it.....”
Not to mention your IP address, and that’s a keystroke away from your GPS coordinates, which the Census gathered to everyone’s front door a couple of years ago.
They can then feed those GPS coordinates into any weapons system they’ve got for a quick attitude rectification, or to a DHS population relocation / reduction team for further disposition.
How ya like that State cheese, Mr. Patriot?
