Skip to comments.Don’t Touch My “Junk”

Since the new TSA touchy-feely rules are now in effect and the blog topic of the week I thought Id share a riveting and revealing story that is quickly going viral. This gentlemans blog post on his fun at the airport has received over 5,000 comments and his calm but brave stand against fairly invasive airport security procedures has made him a Robin Hood for a great many Americans who are just fed up with it all. Pay special attention to the multitude of threats he received and the statements about him giving up his rights that pepper the account. Kind of makes you wonder what they would do if entire flights just refused to participate in technological strip-searches and government groping exercises. Collective action often forces changes in policy. It would just take the American flying public to show some courage and outrage.
You can sense we are on the brink of that happening, well just have to see if it does. Especially as we enter the busiest time of the year for airplane travel, well be watching to see if any other incidents of this type comes to the publics attention. Weve already seen the boycott of the airlines beginning to become a national movement.

Leave my junk alone!
All I can think of right now is the famous word Gen. McAulliffe said to the surrounding Germans at Bastogne,
forget flying. the train is a much better option for cost and dignity. yea, the travel time is longer but you don’t have to get felt up by some wannabe Eichmann.
Elect a Democrat and watch them burn the Constitution.
It gets worse now they are investigating this guy and he may face an $11,000 dollar fine.
Big hug billboards about 1/2 mile near the entrance of major US airports.
They could say "WELCOME TO [DALLAS-FORT WORTH AIRPORT]. A CONSTITUTION-FREE ZONE"
Just vary the name of the airport for each billboard.
>> an $11,000 dollar fine.
Wait til he’s fined again for Obamacare!
a) They will make it a federal crime to tape (video or audio) within 100 meters before, during and after security stations at US airports. (They already have a cellphone and pic ban at most Immigration and Customs sections of airports when you enter and by and large people obey them for fear of being denied entrance to the US.) I am sure I write something here that they are already thinking post facto after this incident where they were exposed, (also the case of the terrified 3-year old blonde girl being recently TSA-molested), so I am not giving them ideas.
b) They do a "Joe the Plumber" on this guy in San Diego. They are going to IRS him. They are going to leak stuff. They are going to try to damage his credit score, attack his family, the whole nine yards, maybe even threaten imprison list. He will be on a No Fly list for at least 10 years (or until President Palin can have him removed).
Look, you just don't kick the Federal Government in the shins like that as a "little guy" in "flyover country" and get away with it very easily. The $11,000 in my opinion is just starters for this poor but courageous fellow.
"Hug" (sic) is what the TSApervs will want to do to five year old boys.
Don’t touch my junk was a good line, but even better was his comeback when some TSA idiot told him “this isn’t considered sexually inappropriate” - “it would be if it weren’t government sponsored” he said.........
I just got a letter from the IRS.
Seems my accountant added a $30 fine to my payment to cover a late estimated payment.
But, the IRS claims that I overpaid my taxes by $30. I asked my kids what they think should happen. Answers were 1) send me a check for $30. 2) Credit next years account and 3) Sorry - we’re keeping your $30, be more careful next time.
All were wrong. For paying $30 too much I
1) have to pay a penalty of $208.
2) pay interest of $122 (not sure on what - the penalty?)
3) BUT- I do get credited for the $30, so I only have to pay $300.
Ironic thing was, my one daughter was asking for help on her history question “Why were the colonies leary of creating a country with a centralized form of government?”
I think she figured it out as I was pacing acround the room waving the IRS letter around in the air, yelling and ranting.
It sounds like the IRS didn't think the $30 was enough to cover the penalties and interest for your late estimated tax payment. Sometimes, the letters they send out are an exercise in obscurity.
Of course, the other possibility is they mad a mistake. I got assessed a penalty for late payment when I had filed an extension with what ultimately turned out to be the correct payment amount.
Despite having signed the return receipt (green) postcard and cashing the check, they lost the filing for extension. Eventually, they closed the matter, but their reason was: "you've always paid on time, and we are granting you this one-time forgiveness".
I couldn't make up a more absurd story.
“I think you should read the letter closer.”
As I was sending it to my accountant I did just that. The first page summary made it seem like what I had said. But, the other pages of it showed the actuals. The $30 penalty was the standard rate I think for paying late. Then a penalty based on how late it was. And then interest on the tax after it was late (58 days).
Sometimes it is a real drag being stupid! Like John Wayne said “Life’s tough. It’s even tougher when you’re stupid.”
Of course now I’m wondering why my accountant didn’t figure it out properly?
Leave it to the Democrats to have the whole world laughing at us.
Maybe he asked his kids for their opinions on your return. :p
The IRS does fine you for overpayment.
Seems the missed what the $30 was for.
My accountant once overpaid my taxes and they did the same to me.
