Oh yeah, THAT'S IT - let's just tag little babies as terrorists and prevent them from boarding planes thanks to secret Government "no-fly" list

Babies Caught Up in 'No-Fly' Confusion
By LESLIE MILLER, Associated Press Writer (source: Yahoo News)

Hey, it's good to see we're not allowing *some* "evil baby terrorists" to board our planes. Way to go, TSA; that's keeping our friendly skies safe!

"... WASHINGTON - Infants have been stopped from boarding planes at airports throughout the U.S. because their names are the same as or similar to those of possible terrorists on the government's "no-fly list."

It sounds like a joke, but it's not funny to parents who miss flights while scrambling to have babies' passports and other documents faxed.

Ingrid Sanden's 1-year-old daughter was stopped in Phoenix before boarding a flight home to Washington at Thanksgiving. ..."

Do you ever wonder if perhaps YOU are on this secret, Government "no-fly" list of over 100,000 Americans? How would you know? Other than trying to fly in peace just to be stopped, you wouldn't know. How would you get on this list? You would hope it would be pretty tough to do so, but let's face it; 100,000-PLUS Americans is a lot of names per capita. Can you end up on the list because you write a blog that disagrees with some donut munching G-man's own political viewpoints? Because you staunchly defend the 1st, and/or 2nd Amendments? Dislike the USA Patriot Act, or RealID? Again, who knows how you get on the damned thing?

But I do know THIS. I know that no matter how many times I read the Constitution, I just cannot find a single loophole for the Government to just slap my, or your names onto some list that prohibits our rights to travel freely, ESPECIALLY within our nation, but they do indeed do just that when they invent little "lists" like these. It truly sounds like the kind of thing that our Forefathers fled far away from to me.

Again, before you disagree with me on this, how do you know YOU are not on this list? You might very well be on it, so don't be so sure of yourself.
