The saddest part of this story is, far too few people will read into it.

The average Joe, or John Q Public won't be alarmed about this until there are Transit Police running roadblocks at every crossroads of America.

Public Safety and the newly created 'Homeland Security' will be distorted, perverted and corrupted while the real intended targets of those efforts will be missed by a long shot!

Sort of like our 22 thousand plus gun laws, and our tax code...

Of course it's whining...it was written in the "The Progressive." Better known as socialists, this group only whines.

The story might as well have been written in China. We're beginning to act like them.

I am on the no fly list. I refuse to fly as long as I have to give up that much liberty. I would rather walk if it came down to it.

I'm with you all the way there,buddy.I imagine that there are none of arab-middle east descent on the fed's list.

I beleive that I am on some sort of watch list. EVERY time I have flown since 911, I have been pulled out of line for "additional screening". I firmly believe that it is because of my acquaintance with several conservative organizatiosn that have been critical of the government.

Who is "Peace Action"? Sounds like a left-wing organization.

And your point is?.

The (no fly) list is a compilation from intelligence agencies and is shared with the airlines.

Everyone who has ever been monitored by the FBI or CIA? Or the DEA?. Or your local police? Or the IRS? Or the ADL?

Peace Action is probably left wing. However, if a Republican administration can do this to a left wing organization, the next Democratic administration can be counted upon to do it to right wingers. Can you imagine a President Hillary Clinton NOT using this power?

Exactly.

Cornie's not kidding. Apparently, if you request 'no more posts' from your specified opponent, [and have the pull] -- the moderators will send out a 'warning', - No pinging, no freepmail, no reference, no posts allowed.

Check out the 'discussion' JR & I had on the matter yesterday at the 'PING' thread on the general interest forum.

I was just placed on a personal 'no post' list, by, -- 'He who cannot be named'. -- I kid you not.

It's obvious that I wouldn't have such a list, -- but apparently others do. - I've heard from several freepers that have been given 'the warning'.

It appears there is now a select group that must be obeyed. -- By others who must stay silent. -- Kafka anyone?

I found out last week that I was on the no fly list when I tried to fly. I as treated like a criminal at the airports and was not allowed to be checked all the way through to my destination. I had to have port authority come and identify me that I was not a criminal or a terrorist at each stop, and was drop searched twice at each airport. (8 times total RT). This goes the same for my husband who was traveling with me. The security was very rude, and I was threatened twice and I was not doing anything wrong. By the way, I am a caucasian, stay at home mom, in my 20's, and have never had a run in with the law!
