WASHINGTON Cabinet secretaries, top congressional leaders and an exclusive group of senior U.S. officials are exempt from toughened new airport screening procedures when they fly commercially with government-sanctioned security details.

Oh please, stop w/the self righteous attitude. You are offended by the letters FU? Actions are more powerful than words, and that is exactly what this administration is DOING TO YOU! So have yourself a feel up and that dirt will stay with you forever. Or will you bless those evil b*stards?
Imho, you are missing the point.
Bustard noun a large, heavily built, swift running bird found in open country in the old world. The males of must bustards have a spectacular courtship display.
ORIGIN: late 15th cent.: perhaps an Anglo-Norman French blend of Old French bistarde and oustarde, both from Latin avis tarda slow bird : the name is unexplained, as the bustards are fast runners.
Profanity - by words or deeds.
Take your pick - actually you DON’T get to pick!
Since you are so offended by words NOW deeds have been thrust upon you. Live with your feel up for the rest of your life and you’ll see where your mind takes you with that one.

Some pigs are more equal that others.
Why are you getting so angry at my simple request that we conservatives make our arguments in standard English, without profanity?
