The TSA Edition of the Private Sector Does a Better Job

The Transportation Security Administration has become infamous over the years for things that it doesn’t allow on planes. Consider these examples of the Keystone Cops in action. Confiscating a plastic hammer from a mentally retarded man. Detaining a woman for carrying breast milk. Hassling a woman for the unexplained red flag of having sequentially numbered […]

The TSA: A Perfect Symbol of the Federal Government’s Waste and Incompetence

Conservative Comedy 7/31/15

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative where I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. The Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change isn’t feeling hugely wordy today, so he’s experimenting with giving you a cartoon with minimal commentary. For example, as much traction as the Cecil story is getting, he was surprised that Obama didn’t quickly pencil a “Save the Lions” clause into his deal with Iran in order to ram it through Congress. Because lions are clearly more lovable than Israelis, right? Jodi Miller at Newsbusted takes us into the weekend with these headlines: Obama’s wants to raise the minimum wage for millions of Americans because he hasn’t killed enough jobs, Hillary Clinton’s approval numbers are down due to the vast right-wing conspiracy, and the Iran nuclear deal provides new hope. Additional stories include: the British Royal Family is broke, Greece is getting a new loan but needs a co-signer, and Oregon flyers don’t need a plane to fly thanks to marijuana. She wraps up her show with a story on the rising prices at Starbucks, and […]

Conservative Comedy 7/24/15

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative where I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. We’re just going to be totally up front about the fact that there’s no way B. Hussein could come out ahead, in our eyes, in his long-delayed decision to lower flags to half-staff for the victims of Muhammad Abdulazeez. But now Obama has ordered the flags to be lowered. Not because it was the right and moral thing to do,  but because too many angry members of the public called him out on it. In a rare instance of genuine transparency, it was clear that Obama simply wanted to bury the story as quickly as possible, along with any troubling questions about Islamic radicalism in our nation. The Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change is glad that the victims are now being shown appropriate respect, but saddened that the tragedy of their deaths was compounded by the spectacle of a president who cared only about his own agenda. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted takes us into the weekend with these headlines: Obama’s job approval […]

Conservative Comedy 7/17/15

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative where I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. Barack Hussein Obama took to the airwaves early Tuesday morning to announce that our years of tough, hardball negotiations with Iran have finally paid off in a deal which forces the “Death to America, Death to Israel” terrorism-exporting, always-lying nation to not only pinky-swear that they will stop developing nuclear weapons, but – at the insistence of John “Swiftboat” Kerry – also cross their hearts not to cheat this time. In return for all this impressive promising, Obama’s tough deal has given the Iranians very, very little. All we have to do is remove all economic sanctions from Iran, immediately ship them tens of billions of dollars, allow them to keep feverishly spinning and enriching nuclear materials in their cyclotrons, supply them with additional and more sophisticated cyclotrons, and allow them to continue development of ballistic missiles and weapons systems. Check out this week’s edition of The Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted takes us into the weekend with […]

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative where I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. The Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change is taking some time off, but even on an imaginary vacation, he has something to say about what’s happening in America today. As bad as things are, it’s nothing that a couple of fruity drinks can’t numb away for a little while. He’ll be back on the 13th. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted takes us into the weekend with these headlines: Obama celebrates Independence Day during Ramadan, Bernie Sanders is climbing in the polls, and TV Land pulls the Dukes of Hazzard. Additional stories include: Fidel Castro shows up at a Bernie Sanders campaign rally, Malia Obama skips her birthday party after she learns that Michelle planned the menu, and Greece’s financial difficulties. She wraps up her show with a story on Rapper DMX’s child support troubles. Traveling this summer? Avoid these officially terrorist-y behaviors—or you might get detained. For a friendly guide to actual suspicious signs the TSA looks for, watch the video below from Reason […]

Conservative Comedy 6/26/15

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative where I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. According to Chief Justice John Roberts, “Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them. If at all possible, we must interpret the act in a way that is consistent with the former, and avoids the latter.” So Roberts is again violating his duties by ruling on what he believes the intent was when one political party unilaterally passed an act they hadn’t bothered to read. And in coming to his conclusion, Roberts has had to ignore Jonathan Gruber’s plainspoken admissions that the Act was written to deliberately punish states which did not establish their own healthcare exchanges. The “pertinent statutory phrase” was clear, deliberate, and the exact opposite of what Roberts is now saying. But the Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change  takes it a step further. The Affordable Care Act was written to destroy health insurance markets, so that when the full implementation of Obamacare fails (as it is already doing), no market solution will […]

TSA and the Republican-led Congress: a picture of ineptitude

Over the past few months there have been several alarming reports about the Transportation Safety Administration–the word “safety” is apparently a relative word–more commonly referred to as the TSA. Some of the recent revelations in a Townhall.com story included: Documents detailing alleged sexual assaults by TSA agents at airports across the country. Thousands of missing TSA uniforms and security badges. Failure by the TSA to prevent potential terror attacks, detect explosives and other weapons in 96% of undercover tests. Failure to screen dozens of airport workers who ended up having ties to terrorism. Americans are outraged, and lawmakers claim to be angry about it too, but what is Congress actually doing about it? Well, if you’re a big spending, big government Democrat or RINO, you cry for more money because the $7 billion a year we are currently spending just isn’t quite enough to get the job done. And if you’re Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI)–chairman of the committee in charge of the TSA and candidate for re-election in 2016–there are three things you do. You go on national television to demonstrate your incredible stupidity by confirming the public perception that the TSA is nothing more than “security theater” because it […]

Another Strong Entry in the Least-Sympathetic-Victim-of-Obamacare Contest

Shortly after Obamacare was enacted, I began to maintain a list of groups that were victimized by the law. But after listing kids, low-income workers, and retirees, I quickly realized this was a senseless exercise because virtually everyone in the country was going to be hurt by this expansion of government power and control. So […]

Conservative Comedy 11/14/14

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. On Saturday, Healthcare.gov reopens for “open enrollment” so that everyone can see the wonderful new prices that the government didn’t want you to know about until after the election. The Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change tells us that he will be getting involved this time around, thanks to the affordable care act raising the cost of our old “like it, keep it” policy by another $4,000 this year while reducing benefits. But hey, it could be worse. At least the people who made healthcare less accessible and more expensive when they wrote the Obamacare bill aren’t laughing about how stupid the American people were in failing to stop the law. Oh wait, yes they are. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted provides laughs this week on several news stories, including: Vladimir Putin is voted number one leader in the world, illegal immigration and the border, and Willie Nelson’s memoirs. Additional stories include: Kim Kardashian’s new reality TV show, how snoring can raise your risk […]

More Horror Stories from the TSA Bureaucrats

I’m wondering whether the Transportation Security Administration is a valuable part of government. Not because the bureaucracy does a good job, but instead because it does so many foolish things that it helps convince more people to become libertarians. Consider these horror stories. o Confiscating a plastic hammer from a mentally retarded man. o Detaining a woman […]

September 11, 2001 – The day liberty died

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness – Declaration of Independence __________________________________________ As we approach another anniversary of the terrorist attacks that took place in New York City and Washington, D.C. on September 11, 2001, we are reminded of many things. We remember the thousands of innocent lives that were lost and the billions of dollars lost in economic damage. As great and tragic as these losses were, there was another loss that is proving to be the greatest loss of all. Because it was on that dreadful day that liberty died in America. Sadly, the demise of this God-given right didn’t occur at the hands of the hijackers. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The Patriot Act. The Patriot Act II. Spying by the National Security Agency (NSA). Fake cell phone towers used to tap your cell phone. These are just a few examples of how government of, by, and for the people has become government over, above, and beyond the people. As the list of post-9/11 changes above shows, the president who “abandoned free market principles to save the free market system,” could […]
