For all the bravado that the Republicans and especially the Tea Party Members have with reference to being strong on terrorism, it seems that the checks and enforcement of the policy should not apply to them.
At a Nashville,Tennessee airport this past Monday, Republican Senator Rand Paul, was stopped for setting off an alarm and REFUSED the pat down. This of course prompted his father, U.S. Presidential Candidate Ron Paul, to accuse security officials of being part of an “Out Of Control” police state. (I guess these laws only apply to the little people of the United States)
After Rand Paul refused the pat down, he was escorted out of the airport security area in Nashville, Tennessee, by local authorities, the TSA said. Paul missed his flight to Washington, but was later rebooked and re-screened without incident. (I’m guessing he removed what ever he was carrying that set off the screening detector.)
Rand Paul has recommended that authorities eliminate pat downs as part of everyday security, saying TSA should more heavily emphasize non-invasive methods for assessing risk.
The senator has even complained that close screening of members of Congress and other frequent fliers known to airlines and security officials is a poor use of security resources. (Like I said, should only apply to those little people smucks.)
When will the people of the United States realize that he and some others are “SPECIAL PEOPLE” that are above the laws of the country and everyone needs to get in line and on board with this fact?
Don’t worry Rand, I got your back, because you and I both know that our country’s laws don’t need to be applied to you.
