    TSA agents in St. Louis, Missouri, disarmed Rooster Monkburn, a cowboy sock money, of his two-inch toy gun after a woman brought the stuffed monkey through security. Agents said that it posed a threat because it could be confused for a real gun, according to local reports.
    “[The agent] said ‘this is a gun,’” said Phyllis May, recounting the experience to fly back to her home in Washington state. “I said no, it’s not a gun it’s a prop for my monkey.”
    May, who has a small business selling sock monkeys, was also questioned for bringing the sewing supplies she uses to make the stuffed animals in her carry-on bag. TSA agents told her they would have to confiscate the miniature firearm and call the police, although Washington’s KING-TV reports that the TSA never did call the authorities. May’s sewing supplies were ultimately returned to her.

    You know that NSA hasn't caught a single terrorist, right?

    I strongly suspect that the NSA hasn't a thing to do with terrorism.

    Do you think their main purpose is to spank monkeys?

    I got my first .410 in '48. 'Course, I didn't have a cell phone to monitor, either.

    It doesn't, actually. Their function is to gather and process electronic and signals intelligence on anyone or any entity on whom or which they are told to gather it. They existed and functioned long before 'Terrorism' was treated as any specific threat, and will exist long after the focus moves to the next thing.

    Law enforcement and intelligence agencies lie about whether they are investigating any particular person or thing, and are even allowed to do that by law up to a certain vaguely-defined point. Even when they are telling the truth, what they say has to be very carefully deconstructed to understand what it actually means, since they normally make statements about their activities that are only true in a very hypertechnical, precisely-tuned sort of way, rather than literally true in the broader way they are meant to be taken.

    I wouldn't trust those sock monkeys, either. They look evil.

    Don't judge the TSA agents by their appearance.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
