Laura Ingraham: Airport Workers Stole My Baptismal Cross!
http://dailycaller.com/ ^ | July 18, 2011 | Mathew Boyle

Posted on 07/18/2011 5:34:08 PM PDT by Biggirl

Laura Ingraham’s baptismal cross went missing from her checked luggage at the Newark airport this weekend, and the syndicated radio host says either a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) worker or a Continental Airlines employee is responsible.

Ingraham had just finished several radio and television appearance in New York City and was in a rush to the airport. She told The Daily Caller she normally carries her luggage on planes, but since she was pressed for time and was carrying copies of her new book, she checked a suitcase before her Friday evening flight from Newark to Denver.

Those X-ray machines can sure come in handy if you are in a hurry to find items of value.

I would never put jewelry or any valuable or any semi valuable item in my checked luggage. Bad decision.

*headline only*

Oh my! Isn’t it just horrible to be treated like the rest of us? Well come to think of it, you weren’t...you just lost your cross. “Oh my!” /s

Lots ‘n’ lots of Muslims work for TSA now, don’t they? Shakin’ down and pattin’ down us kaffirs, right?

And it’s devout Muslim Somalis who are `cleaning’ the airplanes in many airports, too, aren’t they?

So why shouldn’t a blonde naked-faced kaffir female get relieved of the hated cross symbol of the evil `nasrani’ infidels?

(please to note my tagline)

My daughter learned that years ago when she stowed a favorite silver bracelet in her bag.

I'm surprised Laura would trust the TSA thieves. Kind of like putting a steak on the floor and trusting the dog to leave it alone.

This could be religious intolerance or simple jewelry theft, but there's something Soviet about the confiscation of religious articles and the course that the U.S is on now. Hugh Hewitt has been interviewing the ADF very recently about anti-Christian policies around the world, and then just a few days ago I saw this decal on the back of a minivan in my home town of Denver.

“I’m doing my part. I haven’t flown in seven years, though life would be much easier if I did.”

One of the objectives of the exercise is to convince people to *not* fly.

The “Luddite left” hate airplanes and air travel. In Britain now there are calls to heavily tax flying in addition to the taxes they already have.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/travelnews/air-passenger-duty/6466220/Air-Passenger-Duty-APD-or-travel-tax-and-what-you-can-do-to-scrap-it.html

“The tax – originally presented as an environmental measure – will penalise not the well-off business traveller who flies on private jets but the ordinary British holidaymaker on a well-earned break.”

Think about it, there is absolutely *no* legitimate reason for the TSA to keep increasing its level of offensive behavior, and yet it does. Why do they *concentrate* on the most innocent of people, such as small children, people in wheelchairs and the handicapped, the sick and elderly?

Security almost has nothing to do with it anymore.

NEVER EVER put valuables in checked bags. I’ve had stuff stolen and learned my lesson.

Nothing but union thugs working the luggage.

Likely the sleazy -8A types the TSA hires took it for the scrap metal value.

Interesting observation... Why do they *concentrate* on the most innocent of people, people in wheelchairs and the handicapped, the sick and elderly? The procedures and policies of TSA are in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, I would think, because the elderly and infirm, passengers with wheelchairs, crutches, implants and prosthetics, are singled out every time for the abusive patdown. Why has this issue not surfaces? Am I missing something?

Sure Burrack. You sound just like a dimocrat. Your stupid comments are not funny to some of us. Take them elsewhere, or simply, grow up.

I am sorry that Laura was robbed. However, on NRO there are two threads on this and I think the purpose is to shame the Newark Airport into giving up the culprits. Good luck with that one!

The tsa uses the xray machines to see if there is anything in your bag worth stealing.

I had a flat piece of metal stolen. A sample of a piece of metal with a special coating of paint. Not really valuable, but stolen just the same. Guess some tsa goon wanted something shiny. Should have coated it with itching powder or habanero pepper oil. Would make their next trip to the little thugs room rather interesting.

Just be prepared and don’t pack anything that you can afford to have lifted.

You are obviously humor-challenged. How dark life must be for you.
