In the “You gotta be effing kidding me” news, photojournalist Michael Yon was “detained” (read handcuffed and treated like shit) by TSA drones at the Seattle Airport for refusing to answer a question regarding the safety and security of our country:
How Much Money Do You Make?
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot are these idiots thinking about? And why does TSA have to be asking how much anybody makes? What is the possible use anybody’s income in detecting a possible terrorist? Is AlQaeda paying Social Security? Have our intelligence services detected pay stubs by Taliban INC. Has Janet Napolitano instituted a directive in which income alone is a sign of possible terrorist activity? Maybe if Mr Yon was on welfare he would have had no problems at all.
This is a quote from Michael’s FaceBook account
When they handcuffed me, I said that no country has ever treated me so badly. Not China. Not Vietnam. Not Afghanistan. Definitely not Singapore or India or Nepal or Germany, not Brunei, not Indonesia, or Malaysia, or Kuwait or Qatar or United Arab Emirates. No county has treated me with the disrespect can that can be expected from our border bullies.
Seriously, I refuse to fly commercial while our safety is in the hands of these self imposed mentally deficient morons with federal powers and bad attitude to match. Mr. Yon was rescued by port authority police and let go.
