Texas House of Representatives Seeking to Ban Current TSA Pat-Down

*** begin quote ***

What’s our take on the Texas House of Representatives voting to ban the current TSA pat-down? Well, the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution (Article. VI. Clause 2) prevents states from regulating the federal government.

Interesting, interesting, interesting … …

This is another “great fight” that is shaping up to head for the supremes.

(Never understod the Dead Old White Guys thinking that the Gooferment would be regulated by a Gooferment “court”. But they were pretty smart and never expected “We, The People” to be so dumb.)

Guess whoever writes the TSA blog never heard about “the better part of valor”.

Last thing I’d do is tell a bunch of <past tense synonym for urine output> off Texans that “we do cause we’re the tsa and better than you”.

Guess they’ve never read the 10th. Soon to be a MORE popular topic in Texas.

(The folks in the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee are still trying to be better socialists than California or New York, so this will be unknow to them.)

While not enough to move the folks into the streets, it’s certainly gotta sit like a burr under a saddle.

And, if I was a troublemaker, I’d forward this story to everyone I knew in Texas.

(And, call them “goat ropers”. They just love that. It’ll put them in the proper frame of mind to read it.)

Federal Communications commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker announced Wednesday that she will resign from the FCC on June 3 and join Comcast-NBC Universal as its senior vice president of governmental affairs.

Baker, a Republican, joined the FCC in 2009 after working at the National Telecomunications and Information Administration under President George W. Bush. While at the NTIA, Baker oversaw a $1.5 billion coupon program to help consumers make the transition to digital-only television.

The commissioner’s announcement comes four months after she voted to approve a joint venture between Comcast and NBC Universal.

Regulatory capture or just biz as usual.

Politicians and bureaucrats have NO shame!
