755,000

So, that’s how many people are on the terrorist watchlist. I think it indicates an issue with the .gov’s tracking. Because if there really are 755,000 terrorists here, we’re in trouble.

And, don’t forget, that’d be 755,000 prohibited from buying guns without due process of law if the anti-gunners had their way.

    One of my coworkers has a 4 yr old grandson who is on the no-fly list just because of his name. They can’t get him off the list, but TSA lets him on the plane when they get a look at him. What happens when he grows up? Jack.

    That’s less than 1 in 400…

    The Muslim population alone is over 5.2 million in the US, so if they are ALL Muslim, then that’s 1 in 7 of them, meaning at least 6 out of 7 Muslims are not on the list at all.

    Now, if only the 6 out of 7 took care of the 1 in 7, we wouldn’t have a problem at all.

    Keep in mind, if the Hildebeest is elected, that number goes up by about 4 million when she declares the NRA a terrorist organization.

    While I agree, there’s actually 755,000 names on the list, not people. that means that multiple Robert Johnsons, Ted Kennedys, James Moores, Walther Murphys, and a few people named John Lewis are all annoyed by this ineffective war on teh terror.

    You can apply for a “I am not a terrorist” card, but that does not escape you from extra scrutiny, or allow you to print yourself a boarding pass on your own printer like normal people.

    The best part about all this TSA mischief is that it’s pretty easy to circumvent.

    Circumvention is a crime, so I’ll only recommend this path for people planning to meet Allah next Tuesday.

    The kid can try various variations of his legal name. Sen. Ted “series of tubes” Stevens’ wife, Catherine Stevens, ran in to this problem when she tried to fly under the name “Cat Stevens”.

    Yes, it’s really that easy, and that stupid.

    I used to have *some involvement* in this area in the past. Needless to say, I’m in the database vis-a-vis said involvement, purely from an *administrative* standpoint. However, I’ve not had a problem with domestic air travel, and I always print my own documents and I’m usually checking a firearm.

    I’ve not travelled internationally since that time and I can’t address any incidents I may have in doing so, but I doubt I’ll have any. I do, however, think the whole list is combersome and unwieldy and in dire need of an overhaul as well as some level of end point oversight with a single point of accountability…as opposed to how it is now.

    …and that’s all I can say about that.

    Regards,
    Rabbit.

    Maybe most of those 755,000 people on the list are liberals who’ve been openly pro-Osama. IMHO, morally supporting terrorists and acually being one are one and the same.

    Just wait until the names from the 2640 list are added.

    My mistake. My source says that even with the ID card, you canít check-in online or by using a kiosk, you still need to check in in person.

    Spoof yourself a boarding pass!

  10. Rabbit Says:

    Oh, I still go to the counter and present my credentials, such as they are (I’m not a LEO and don’t purport to be one.) I announce I’m checking a firearm, smile, and wait for a reaction. Usually, Southwest smiles right back and doesn’t get freaked, although there was one time in San Antonio where my Pelican case (safety yellow) caused some PSH from a counter drone who thought it should be ‘in a bag’. She was quickly overruled by her supervisor, who ‘got it’.

    I also carry a printout of TSA’s rules and the airline’s rules and have them available to show full ‘compliance’ on my part and to ensure compliance on their part.

    Regards,
    Rabbit.

    Would think there are more Mohammed’s on the list than John’s…

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
