Libertarian wins 250k from TSA for his arrest

FUCK THE TSA. FUCK THE GOVERNMENT.

A Virginia man who wrote an abbreviated version of the Fourth Amendment on his body and stripped to his shorts at an airport security screening area won a trial Friday in his lawsuit seeking $250,000 in damages for being detained on a disorderly conduct charge.

Aaron Tobey claimed in a civil rights lawsuit (.pdf) that in 2010 he was handcuffed and held for about 90 minutes by the Transportation Security Administration at the Richmond International Airport after he began removing his clothing to display on his chest a magic-marker protest of airport security measures.

He didn't create the disturbance and he isn't a threat to our civil liberties. They could have cleared him peaceably if they had chosen to.

You can scarcely argue that the sight of his bare torso was offensive to people who were about to examine his nude form on a video screen or else conduct a hands-on investigation that might result in a full strip-search.

Actually R3, there is a huge amount of simple minded young kids that identify as libertarians. They see things as black and white, know it all at 20. So that kid fits right in.

The problem is, they dont see things clearly, only cherry picked facts and concepts. They hate government except when THEY need it. But F everyone else.

Even Ron Paul was doing the cherry picking dance. Do you want private police force? Private fire department? Private emergency care? What happens when you get into a car accident and your payment didnt go through? Should they leave you to die because you didnt save enough money to pay a 40,000 bill from the hospital?

Because maybe r23 is smart enough to acknowledge freedom is never absolute, and is traded to some extent for a measure of protection under a social contract. A society without any government is nothing but a vacuum for warlords to fill. How much better off are people in nations where government doesn't have the resources to govern? Is the population of Central African Republic enjoying unbridled freedom and prosperity? Or are beset by poverty and disease, and terrorised by warlords, slavers and madmen? Our government is not without its faults and fundamental reform is needed, but abolishing the federal government entirely is a fool's solution.

There is deep fear of libertarianism because many *incorrectly* think that it will be the end of welfare and social security.

The thing is, is that there are many different types of libertarians. Some are outright socialists who would support free health care, welfare, and education. Others would want to eliminate these things given by government, and have it distributed by charities only (bad idea).

Mostly, though, libertarian means an official policy of equal rights. It is also strongly against U.S. involvement in foreign wars. Regarding Somalia, it was our Democratic and Republican policies under Clinton and Bush that sent the military over there, along with aid. Somalia was destroyed by the Democrats and Repubs, not any Libertarians. LOL!

A U.S. District Court judge has accepted a third amended complaint from a woman who got into a tussle with security officials at Bob Hope Airport when they wouldn’t allow her to bring applesauce and other snacks on a flight in 2009.

Nadine Hays of Camarillo claims she was taken into custody after the April 2009 incident based on a falsified citizen’s arrest form and tampered evidence.

U.S. District Court Judge Patrick Walsh said several defendants who have been served, including some airport employees, must now respond to allegations in Hays’ complaint — or enter a plea — by March 1.

The defendants include Tesia Tettah, the Transportation Security Administration employee with whom Hays allegedly got into a tug-of-war. The three arresting police officers from the airport are also named, as are the Burbank city attorney’s office, Burbank Police Department, airport police department and the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority, which oversees the airfield.

All of Hays’ previous complaints were rejected by Walsh, who described her second amended complaint — in which more than 60 defendants were named — as “long and rambling."

R55 Please demonstrate any feasible way in which the rich can pay for almost a trillion dollars in deficits without being taxed on more than 60 percent of their income.

As a person who has seen economic prosperity occur in front of my own eyes through the privatization of his hometown's infrastructure, I doubt that you're talking the talk of a true economist. As a person who's inspired a movement in a country that has turned it around, I believe in what you say about welfare for the rich. We should do away with it indeed! That's what I want.

I want to eliminate corporate welfare entirely. I think it's a feasible political model and that the economy will remain sustainable without corporate welfare. Let them sink when they fail instead of crying to momma.

While I can agree with you on that, I can't agree with the "paying taxes is patriotic" rhetoric.

I can agree with you also on the fact that the rich CAN afford taxes. But do we really want them to pass the taxes onto end-users and consumers? We might as well tax products, not production.

This is the story of gay politics. The government (both major parties) have screwed us royally for generations. Obama changed his stance on gay marriage only very recently when it was politically expedient. Yet, gay liberals will happily lick up the crumbs brushed from the table as long as the crumbs come from a Democrat.

The deafening silence of the anti-war Left nowadays is telling. Clearly, war and the stripping away of human rights is okie-dokie if it comes from a fellow liberal. Of course, liberals traditionally are more concerned with chimeric "group rights" than with individual rights.

How often do we hear anyone on datalounge question the war in Afghanistan, the lingering occupation of Iraq, or sloppy drone attacks? Who on here questions Obama's grab for power and authority? These are all more than political inconveniences. If what Obama is doing now were done under a Republican administration, we can just the shrieking on datalounge.

The Libertarian Party is the only 2nd-tier party in the United States that has *for years* openly endorse our marriage freedom, and it has done so because it's the right thing to do and not in some cynical attempt to garner votes at the last minute. But most dataloungers prefer to lick the boots of those who hold them captive. So, yes, R76, this is the wrong crowd.

Completely false. The Libertarian Party's official platform is that the government should stay out of marriage completely (which is, of course, impossible, so this aspect of their party platform is a thin veil covering their true agenda which is to deny gays rights), and they are against legal protection for gays against discrimination. This is abhorrent.

Libertarian favorites like Ron Paul and Rand Paul make their hatred of gays and contempt for gay rights more explicit. Ron Paul and Rand Paul, for example, are opposed to the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the Constitution, and believe that states should not have to recognize the same-sex marriages performed by other states, in clear violation of the Constitution. They believe that individual states have the right to ban gay marriage in violation of the 14th Amendment. They believe individual states have the right to ban sodomy, in violation of the 4th and 14th Amendments.

Libertarians are not allies of gays, nor are they defenders of the Constitution. These are two myths that the media loves to repeat, but repeating a lie over and over again does not make it true.

[quote]Sexual orientation, preference, gender, or gender identity should have no impact on the government's treatment of individuals, such as in current marriage, child custody, adoption, immigration or military service laws. Government does not have the authority to define, license or restrict personal relationships. Consenting adults should be free to choose their own sexual practices and personal relationships.

by Anonymousreply 8901/31/2013

[quote]Please tell us in what way our true agenda is to deny us our rights? Please be specific.

Whenever extending the right to marriage to gays is discussed, libertarians do not support it, claiming that they believe that the state has no business being in the marriage business. The consequence is that marriage continues to be a right only enjoyed by heterosexuals. Of course, the very idea of marriage being separate from the state is absurd because marriage has always been an institution of the state. It makes about as much sense as having private police officers, private roads or private firefighters.

Libertarians are also opposed to adding sexual orientation to the list of groups protected from discrimination, because they oppose protection from discrimination in general. In their eyes, it is only the government that shouldn't be allowed to discriminate. They see landlords or employers as having an absolute right to hire, fire or evict whoever they want and for whatever reason they want. This has the consequence of creating a system where only the rights of white men with money are protected. Looking at the demographics of libertarians and seeing that they are overwhelmingly white men with money explains why they fight to protect their own privileged status in society.

Hopefully that's clear enough for you.
