Schumer Calls For ‘Do Not Ride’ List For Amtrak
CBS ^ | 09 may 2011

Posted on 05/09/2011 1:41:50 PM PDT by rellimpank

— Sen. Charles Schumer is calling for better rail security now that the raid on Osama bin Laden’s 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 that’s why I’m calling for the creation of an Amtrak no ride list. That would take the secure flight program and apply it to Amtrak trains.”

Would be good to have a ‘Do Not Elect’ List for Congress. Schumer would figure prominently on it.

Yeah, well if the lib RINOs and demoRATs hadn't been inviting these savages into the country, we wouldn't have to worry about it.

When it hits the fan it'll be bad news.

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.

Hmmm. Mrs. Lucky and I must be on the 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.

“Schumer Calls For ‘Do Not Ride’ List For Amtrak”

Really? I mean, I’ve seen those empty trains. Is this necessary?

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.

I’ll give my age away, but I remember when you could just get on the train at the station and pay for your ticket when the conductor came around with his punch.

We’re one train bombing away from having the TSA move in on the trains, and do the same thing to that industry they’re done to the airlines. Chucky is merely stating the obvious.

These guys really, really need to shut their yaps about may or may not have been found at OBL’s pad.

In related news:

Voters call for “do not reelect list”. Voters concerned about material exposed at the Democratic Party headquarters Sunday, which has turned up plans to attack the US Constitution.
Voters said Sunday they would push for the creation of a “do not reelect list”. The list would be similar to bills calling for term limits that would keep suspected abusers of power from the halls of government.
Notes and talking points memos uncovered from Democratic operatives calling for renewed attacks on any opposition group by demonization and labeling “extremist”.
Voters are calling for an end to funding for taxpayer supported liberal support groups in light of this new intelligence.
Voters say that citizens must remain vigilant in protecting their rights from future attacks

Of course, a terrorist could just do it on a subway train, instead. So I guess we’ll have to have a list for subways, too. And busses, and taxicabs, and cars and trucks, and bicycles.

I’m just sayin...

Anybody else ever notice that the first three letters of Chuckie’s last name are the same as the first three letters of the word “schmuck?”

The first time I had to produce an ID (driver’s license) when boarding Amtrak, was four years or so ago. Small town stop in the middle of the prairie at 3 in the morning.

And the rest of the Senate right behind him. Especially the smelly ones like Reid.

If Schumer REALLY cared, he would be working at securing our borders.

Seems odd translators could go though Osama' s stuff - and find the info about trains so quickly.

I don't believe it.

Takes time to translate - - lots of stuff hauled out of the mansion...

My guess? Liberals are doing their totalitarian control freak thing - - the only 'terrorists' that fit their paranoid delusions are conservative, white, middle class Americans.
