Ask yourself which is more Dangerous. A130 lb scrawny guy with a pocket knife or a 200lb professional boxer.. Fact is there are many people out there that are more dangerous with their hands then your average person with a pocket knife.
BTW how many of you know how to make a newspaper into a spear that can kill some one? Or turn a towel into an effective club.

This is just like the Department of education, billions spent results zero. TSA has never prevented a hijacking, but they have embarrassed many blue haired old ladies.
Ya gotta love this use of the phrase "low information", currently in vogue by the right wing brain dead. The irony of course is that the wingnuts know only what they are programmed to know. This is why they keep getting burned by their handlers, yet keep coming back for more.

Would that be my handlers on Link TV or on Radio Pacifica sense I listen to both. I wonder how many Liberals even know what I am talking about.
Understand Radio Pacifca in danger of losing its transmitter atop the Empire State Building in New York. Seems like there should be enough progressives around that area to raise fund to save it. Or do they prefer to complain about Right wing Media to saving one of their own news outlets.

If you take "wingnut" personally, you are more apt to listen to the voices in your teeth. However, I don't think you fit the stereotype.

You can't take shampoo on an airplane and this moron wants to give you knives. Congress said no. So if a terrorist takes the plane down with a pocket knife can the families of the dead passengers sue this idiot for everything he ever owns? Where does the government get these stupid people?
