What Amerika has become

Want to see the new face of Terror? First check out this guy's credentials.

He's Walter F. Murphy, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence Emeritus at Princeton University, critic of ROE V WADE, supported the Alito nomination, retired Marine colonel who fought in Korean War and was decorated for heroism, then served 5 more years followed by 19 years as a reserve officer.

Tried to board an airplane in Albuquerque, and was refused a boarding pass because of being on the Terrorist Watch List.
"Have you been in any peace marches? We ban a lot of people from flying because of that." I explained that I had not so marched but had, in September, 2006, given a lecture at Princeton, televised and put on the Web, highly critical of George Bush for his many violations of the Constitution. "That'll do it," the man said. " (Emphasis mine) Full post at this link.
They finally gave him a boarding pass, but warned him that his luggage would be ransacked. In the end his luggage coincidentally was "lost."

And we all thought that antiwar demonstrators were just paranoid in the late 60's and early 70's. HA!

In the new AmeriKKKa, peace is considered an act of terror?

For me, it would be a badge of HONOR to be on THEIR damn list!

Means I have given them something to worry about...idiots.

So does this mean that all of us who were at the Austin Million Musicians protest on March 17 are now potential terrorists?

What a crock of crap.

What's really weird is that he's a Constitutional scholar who supported Alito. How? The ONLY thing wrong with Alito is his lack of comprehension about, and thus support for, the types of things this guy seems to be opposed to...

Very weird... I've re-read it twice but still may be missin' something. ('swhy I'm givin' up "hemp" don't ya know...{-; )
