The mentality of our government never ceases to amaze me. Just proves common sense is not so common. Shouldn't there be an IQ test or something to be a goverment employee? But then againg it would be another goverment employee making up the test. And there seems to be no recourse when these things happen. Our goverment is completely out of control. I wonder what list this puts me on?

Like any article, consider the source and it's agenda. Any pro-2a site will portray anything they write to shine on their side and shadow the other side. There's three sides to every story: Side A, side B and the truth.

That's a sucky situation to be in. I guess he wasn't prepped for that, huh? Maybe his buddies in MS will get together, build a raft, paddle out and pick him up.

Every time I hear or see stories like this, I am reminded of our Key Club counsellor back in high school.
This was back in the 60s. When I told him about my mom canning all sorts of things from our garden for the pantry, he told us about his pantry and the spare bedroom in his house where his family stored stockpiled non-perishable food, water, and supplies.
He said it was expected by his religious denomination.

You know, the Mormons.

When Romney is elected I wonder if he will be on the no-fly list?

The State of Hawaii is the big looser in this. If I were the Governor, I would get the Air National Guard to transport him back to where he came from.

Have you guys heard what all he had with him??? Quite honestly I'd be pretty curious and expecting this guy to answer some questions as to why he was flying with body armor, pepper spray grenades and several of the other items as well. BTW Hawaii was his first US airport on his way back home. So to try to blame the TSA (god knows they deserve enough of the blame they get) is kinda one sided. They just happen to be the ones to stop him and ask the questions that should've been asked in Singapore and Australia.

How do you boil a frog alive? A little at the time. How do you destroy a country? A little at a time. It's happening, right in front of us.

You are missing 1/2 of the story- the important 1/2.
The reason why the flight was diverted to Hawaii and the reason why the man was singled out, was because he had previously used the freedom of information act to check the credentials of and outed an undercover DHS agent who was posing as a Navy Seal. This whole fiasco was the DHS or the DHS agent placing the man on a no-fly list in retalliation.

Someone please again remind me why the extra-constitutional agency of the DHS exists and why do I feel like its turning into a an agency similar to the Stasi or KGB?
