So, I guess this makes Schumer like the Soup Nazi - only he's the Train Nazi.
This is really getting insane.
I mean honestly, if people don't believe these are the trappings of a police state then it's time to just pack it in.
Apparently he's all concerned because of some new information found at "Bin Laden's lair" that suggests train travel in the US is a target for the terrorists - specifically New York trains - AMTRAK trains. (and really, why would they think otherwise?)
He said the following,
"Anyone, even a member of al-Qaida could purchase a train ticket and board an Amtrak train without so much as a question asked, so that’s why I’m calling for the creation of an Amtrak no ride list. That would take the secure flight program and apply it to Amtrak trains.”The "do not ride" list is supposed to be like the no-fly list that the airlines have which despite TSA groping children and general population, is supposed to keep suspected terrorists from flying the friendly skies. Now we can grope children at train stations and deny people travel ... just because.
So who do you suppose will really be denied riding the rails? Lots of people are considered terrorists these days ... according to the MIAC report .. you know, people such as returning veterans, Ron Paul/Chuck Baldwin/Bob Barr supporters, people who have knowledge of the U.S. Constitution, and people who display certain political bumper stickers as potential domestic terrorists. The MIAC report equated Ron Paul supporters, Libertarians, people who own gold, or even people who fly a U.S. flag and members of Campaign For Liberty, with radical race hate groups and terrorists! No doubt, Schumer would love to see those people detained and locked up.
Remember the Enemy Belligerent bill that was floating around?
Don't forget.... Who or what is a terrorist will be solely the determination of those in charge... and that includes Chuck Schumer.
But - it's all in the name of "safety" of course.
Maybe it's time we boycott public transportation, and vote liberty sucking tyrants like Schumer out of office!
By the way... where was Chuckie regarding securing our borders? (sound of crickets chirping)
