Pack Lightly

The LOVELY people at the Dept. of Homeland Security have the right to take and search your laptop, MP3 player, flash drive, etc. Oh, and they can keep it as long as they want. The money quote comes from Chertoff himself...

PhotobucketHomeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff wrote in an opinion piece published last month in USA Today that "the most dangerous contraband is often contained in laptop computers or other electronic devices." Searches have uncovered "violent jihadist materials" as well as images of child pornography, he wrote.

Bullshit, Michael you skeletal fucking waste of skin. You found rants from unhappy people (I.E., my posts) and called them 'jihadist'. As for the child porno, where are the convictions, asshat? And you found this on how many computers? One? Two?

Chertoff is playing a game that bureaucrats like him LOVE, Justify Your Existence. The sad truth is that there is no need for him TO exist. In fact, we could significantly scale back DHS and achieve the same result. Meanwhile our coasts and our borders leak like sieves and there are few (if any) real inspections of shipping containers entering the US through our major ports. Containers that could easily hold 20 W88 class nukes. But Michael and his staff are more concerned about what might or might not be on your computer.

This is absolutely ridiculous. Once again, Feingold is leading the way to refocus on DHS on REAL problems...give him your help.

Comrade Chertoff's policy of advancing despotism is no bargain at any price.
