More Outrageous Behavior From The TSA

Elderly woman asked to remove adult diaper during TSA search

A woman has filed a complaint with federal authorities over how her elderly mother was treated at Northwest Florida Regional Airport last weekend.

Jean Weber of Destin filed a complaint with the Department of Homeland Security after her 95-year-old mother was detained and extensively searched last Saturday while trying to board a plane to fly to Michigan to be with family members during the final stages of her battle with leukemia.

Her mother, who was in a wheelchair, was asked to remove an adult diaper in order to complete a pat-down search.

“It’s something I couldn’t imagine happening on American soil,” Weber said Friday. “Here is my mother, 95 years old, 105 pounds, barely able to stand, and then this.”...

Teenage Flash Mobs

A little information about teenage flash mobs:
...Called “flash robs,” these crimes are being organized by young teenagers through various social media outlets, most notably Twitter. Police say the suspects select a time and place and enter the store in droves taking what they want and leaving before security or police can catch them.

Some of the most brazen robberies take place in the light of day and on busy streets despite all the security cameras and the watchful eyes of workers....

Government Cracks Down On The Gold And Silver Trade

The crackdown begins on July 15, 2011.

This crackdown applies to U.S. residents.

Could this be the first step to making the private ownership of precious metals a crime?

Anniversary Weekend

(If you must have politics, please scroll down)

My bridal bouquet included lavender roses.

My maid of honor, my only attendant, wore a lavender dress.

The wedding cake, made with extra butter, was decorated with lavender roses.

Even the rice was dyed lavender.

Yes, everywhere lavender thirty-nine years ago on June 17, 1972:

Video: The Obama Legacy

With a hat tip to AF Ticker for the video below:


Don't allow the Weiner scandal and the inane media obsession with Sarah Palin's emails to distract your from the real issue at hand: Obama must be defeated in 2012.

Mind-Boggling Hypocrisy

I wasn't going to post anything about the recent distraction known as Weinergate, but then I stumbled across this from Congressman Anthony Weiner's Congressional website (Set down your beverage before reading on):

Troubles Here (With Addendum)

Our beloved Cameo, 3/4 Russian Blue and 1/4 Siamese, is quite ill with a raging bladder infection.

At age 9, she should be able to recover, but this bladder infection has apparently been going on for several months. Mr. AOW and I didn't observe any overt symptoms until the last few days. Cats are very secretive and hide their illnesses until those illnesses are well advanced. **sigh**

The veterinarian has prescribed pain medications and antibiotics, with a special diet soon to follow.

For at least few days, blogging will be light as I attempt to get Cameo through this health crisis — and clean up after her mad dashes to the litter box. Her urgency sometimes results in misses!

Addendum: Alex's get well card for Cameo below the fold.

Video: "Obama Is Lying"

Most know that I'm not particularly a supporter of Sarah Palin. That said, in the short video below, Sarah Palin minces no words (hat tip to Gateway Pundit):


Whomever the GOP chooses as its candidate in 2012 needs to be aggressive in pointing out Obama's lies and misdeeds. Indeed, the GOP should be so doing right now and should be pointing out some of these details, too.
