Sen. Charles Schumer is calling for better rail security now that the raid on Osama bin Ladens compound has turned up plans to attack trains in the U.S.
Anyone, even a member of al-Qaida could purchase a train ticket and board an Amtrak train without so much as a question asked, Schumer said. So thats why Im calling for the creation of an Amtrak no ride list. That would take the secure flight program and apply it to Amtrak trains.

Chucky Schumer should be at the top of such a list.
Would be good to have a ‘Do Not Elect’ List for Congress. Schumer would figure prominently on it.
When it hits the fan it'll be bad news.

I think biden was on that list before 2008 but he was so boring no one noticed his boarding...
We need a “Do not interview” list. Schmuckie at the top.
Rode Amtrack last month and had to produce a photo id to ride the train.
If we had control of our borders, we wouldn’t have to worry about these things.
Schumer really wants to eliminate whatever is left of Amtrak ridership.
But wasn’t one of the desirable benefits of “high speed rail” is that you wouldn’t have to stand in line and be irradiated or groped by the TSA idiots?
WTF, you KNEW this was going to happen the first time some towel head blew himself up on Amtrak.
How about a “DO NOT DRIVE” list for illegal aliens?.................
What about a “Do Not Breathe” list?
We had sleeping car ( or whatever replaced Pullman car ) tickets from Sebring, Florida, to Washington, DC, two months ago. The Conductor was really, really busy (we were told later), didn't check his passenger manifest and forgot to tell the engineer to stop to pick us up.
I'm just counting the days until the same people are in charge of health care.
Or, "No CO2 from YOU!"

Really? I mean, I’ve seen those empty trains. Is this necessary?
All about attempting to use the crisis to control the flow of people and commerce.
ZERO to do with terrorism.
And Chuckie was always complaining the Bush Administration was causing fear among Americans. Sheesh! My husband rides the rails every day.
Quote “We need to put in place screening processes where possible. In this case we’re talking about Amtrak, the Amtrak ticketing system is quite like the airline ticketing system where you have to buy a ticket in advance and have you’re name on the manifold of who is taking the train. We should be comparing Amtrak manifolds the same way we compare airline manifolds to the terrorist watch lists and not let anybody who might be near that list buy a ticket.”
I suppose he meant “manifest”, but who knows? Dems don’t have to be intelligent.
