The TSA, Beetles and happy savages ~ By Robert Ringer

Reading Robert Ringer's columns will always be one of "my favorite things." This one is no exception. Robert delivers punch after punch here, but not necessarily landing just on the TSA or Oprah Winfrey. No, these punches were delivered on the "happy savages," those Americans still living below the waterline, those Americans that haven't quite woken up yet. Don't worry, they will before too much longer. I guarantee it.
Question: What the hell is a "deserving viewer"? Is every viewer deserving? Of what? Why? The reason an intelligent CEO of a major corporation would say something so eminently silly is that the masses must be constantly told they are deserving … they are entitled … they are, above all, "hard-working Americans" – even if they're receiving unemployment benefits!

There's no question that children respond well to this kind of reassurance. The only problem is that these were not children. They were adults!

Which brings me back to the TSA's Barney Frank Anti-Terrorist Fondling operation. When the reality that a Marxist had moved into the White House began setting in with people, millions spontaneously rebelled and became part of a new "tea party" movement.

But millions more refused to come to grips with what was happening before their very eyes. They rejected the notion that Barack Obama was anything but a personable chap who had, bless his youthful heart, simply flirted with far-left ideology as a college kid. Van Jones, Anita Dunn, John Holdren, Mark Lloyd, Cass Sunstein, et al. were simply figments of Glenn Beck's imagination.

Now, however, as a result of the TSA's police-state tactics, I believe a second wave of people are ripe prospects for the tea-party rebellion. And it may not be a peaceful rebellion if the feds don't reign in the perverts who are molesting our wives, our mothers, our children and our grandchildren.

At the recent New Orleans Investment Conference, I participated in the "Summit on America's Future" panel discussion with Charles Krauthammer, Newt Gingrich and Dick Armey. When the moderator, Gary Alexander, asked if we thought America's decline as a great civilization was inevitable, Krauthammer summed it up perfectly: "Decline is a choice. It's not inevitable."

Meaning, in the end, it's strictly up to us. We can continue to be the United States of Stuff, with our minds below the water line, or we can wake up, grow up and push back hard against an oppressive government. At the end of the day, it's a clear choice between submission and all-out resistance in an effort to re-establish the foundations of our once-free and proud republic.

Beetles be damned, if we could accomplish the latter, that would be a legitimate reason for being ecstatic.
