ACTION ALERT: Help South Carolina Nullify the NDAA!

The senate finance committee is considering a bill, S. 1184, to amend state law, effectively nullifying sections of the NDAA authorizing indefinite detention. The bill prohibits the agencies of the state and its subdivisions, including their officers and employees, acting in official capacity from “[engaging] in any activity that aids an agency of the armed forces of the United States in execution of [the NDAA], in the investigation, prosecution, or detainment of any citizen of the United States in violation of Section 3, Article I, and Section 14, Article I of the South Carolina Constitution.”

S. 1184 was introduced February 7, 2012, and now sits in committee with two sponsors; an additional two sponsors have signed on from other committees. Given recent passage of Virginia’s own nullification of the NDAA, let’s continue this trend and send yet another message to the politicians in D.C. – we won’t allow them to abridge our liberties.

You are urged to contact individual members of South Carolina’s Senate Finance Committee, politely explaining why S. 1184 will help restore liberty and continue in the restoration of our Constitutional Republic. Should this bill pass, South Carolina will be the second state to reject the Feds and their unconscionable, unconstitutional NDAA.

A Little PRIVACY!

The world we live in is changed since the War on Terror began.  That is a fact that cannot be denied.  The truth is, anyone attempting to board an airplane is a potential terrorist.  It is possible some of us could be without even knowing it.

To save us from ourselves, we have the Department of Homeland Security bravely labeling Christians, returning war veterans, pro-lifers, and many other groups unrelated to 9/11 as terror threats, just to be safe.  And at our airports, we have the Transportation Security Administration engaging in enhanced patdowns and revealing scans of children, grandmothers and nuns.  These are the people most effective at preventing shoe bombers and underwear bombers and assorted other wardrobe bombers from getting on the planes.

I for one feel safe knowing we have these aggressive measures in place to prevent another terror attack.  But what happens if the wrong people get hired for the job?  What happens if the terrorists infiltrate the TSA?

Enter brave citizen Carol Jean Price.  A woman of 59 years, she was boarding a flight to Ohio when she was chosen for a patdown.  After the procedure was completed, she asked to speak with a supervisor.  According to other TSA Agents, she reached down and grabbed the leg and crotch of the TSA Agent to demonstrate what happened to her.  A police report, according to the story on Wink News, was filed, along with charges of assault and resisting an officer.  Similar incidents have occurred elsewhere, one in Miami, another in Phoenix.
