Imagine my surprise to run across this piece informing me that I haven’t the protections of our beloved Constitution here in New Orleans. (NOT) We’ve been getting royally fucked since the Federal Flood and the “thrusting” still continues to this very day.
Here’s the map of the areas affected-
Notice that most of these areas marked are Liberal/Progressive strongholds? That the Fourth Amendment doesn’t apply in these zones? That your skirt can be lifted, your panties pulled down and they can run a camera up your tush, and you have no recourse under Law? It don’t matter if you have a legal ID, or a VA ID, and no priors, but you are still treated as if you did something wrong?
This isn’t the country I was brought up to love, respect and defend. This is not the nation I gave almost a decade to in Her defense. That catch phrase “Home of the Free and the Brave” only has meaning in that we have no Freedoms, but we are brave for living in these zones. What a crock of shit.
That’s why the ACLU is fighting against this program. This is why the ACLU exists. (and one of my ancestors helped found the organization, so there)
And now Lou Dobbs thinks that the ACLU is the monster for fighting for our Constitutional Rights, our Rights and Freedoms given to each and every one of us by virtue of being citizens of the U.S.?
Lou, you TV over-made up talking head- SHUT THE FUCK UP. You have no probs with this excess of governmental interference of ordinary peoples’ lives. You are a “newsman”, you fly anywhere you wish without having your body groped and your family history investigated back four generations. You will never know the degradation of being handled like a piece of meat in a packing plant, the embarassment of others seeing you as a “suspect”, the utter humiliation of realizing that you are a subject, not a citizen.
Maybe I’m being too tough on Mr. Dobbs and the mooks from the “Heartland”… I seceded from the U.S. after the Federal Flood of my homeland, and yes, I am no longer a member of your tribe. Maybe folks like me should be examined whenever we leave our homes. Since we believe in our Rights and Freedoms, fuckmooks like you have everything to fear. We, the real people of America are the demons to fear.
And I hope that people like me haunt your dreams Mr. Dobbs. You deserve it.
