Rumors of precious metals seizures are nothing new, but given the severe situation with budget, the debt, and rumors of "Red Money" resurfacing in conversations I've been party to, it can't hurt to keep an ear to the ground.
Oh look. I haven't seen this in the American media, but the British have no qualms about skewering the TSA. Thanks all you American media types out there schilling for Totalitarians!
I wish it was just cash. They stole all my Klein hand tools out of checked luggage when I had to fly to L.A. to do a job couple of years back. Broke my O-scope too.
*&%$ers. Phone calls to them and the airline were useless. Fel laughs because every single time I fly, the "random" luggage search seems to land on me. My bags are always rifled through with that ever friendly note left behind about how they're doing it for our safety.
Praise the Lord! Some good news! Now if only they would stop paying themselves, maybe the debt would start heading in the right direction.
The subject of this book, A Renegade History Of The United States, came up over at Mayberry's place. Thought maybe you'd like to check out an interview with the author. I looked for an e-book version to link to, but sadly could not find one.
However, I did find these. Click the cover to go to the download site. Click the titles below the covers to learn more about the book.
