You Are Now Safe To Move About The Country

Somehow, this story from last December escaped our attention until now. Apparently, according to Congressional Quarterly, the TSA wants to put veterans with PTSD on the infamous No Fly List.
As it turns out, the government was taking steps in that direction almost a month before Rigoberto Alpizar was plugged by U.S. air marshals after he ran down the Jetway with a bundle in his hands while saying, according to the government, that he had a bomb.

A Nov. 15 notice put out by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which is always thinking about new ways to keep potentially dangerous people off our airliners, states TSA is looking for contractors to add a number of new databases for screening passengers and airport workers.

Up first are the files of the Defense Department (DoD) and Veterans Administration (VA), which the TSA says it wants scoured for "mental defectives."
I feel safer already knowing that America's next Timothy McVeigh will have to walk, ride a bicycle, drive a car, take the bus or the train, carpool or hitchhike his way to the site of his impending mass casualty attack. God forbid we let those crazy muthafsckers take an airline flight.
