BOOM box! the new meaning of the phrase!

THIS is Ticker's Blog........He has an amazing bunch of posts up now; installments from a book called THE FALLEN EAGLE.   Absolutely riveting and not far from what we've been discussing here for a long time.

BUT, I mention that mostly because I want to thank Ticker for having left the comment below, in italics, on my Burqa's/TSA post....it's a comment that absolutely cracked me up and I wanted to make sure you all saw it!;

Someone sent me via e-mail the perfect solution to this problem.
Simply have a booth, similar to what the bomb squad boys use to disarm bombs but, you know, make it look nice for the airport. Every person has to enter the booth, the door closes, if there is no bomb on the person the door opens and the person boards the plane. If the person is carrying a bomb there will be a soft muffled "boom", the cleaning crew will be called an an announcement will go out..."There is an available seat on Flight 0000."
Now how simple is that! No profiling, no discrimination, no pat downs and no body scans. You'd think someone in the "gubermint" could come up with something that simple, but then again, Naw, never happen.

"Naw...never happen.."   But it sure is funny, and it sure would solve the problem with very little fuss 'n muss (unless you're on Airport Clean-up!)  Yes, I know I sound heartless but I love humor like this and I had to post it!   Thanks, Ticker!

How is it heartless to blow up somebody who was going to blow up hundreds? Bring it on!

Shadow, good point....even I've become so PC'd, I guess, that it's hard to imagine that 'boom room'!
I guess this scanner room TIcker describes gives new meaning to "Boom Box!" huh?

And yes, the enemy thrives on collateral damage and we're afraid to kill one innocent victim in order to save our thousands. THIS is exactly why I keep asking why our country's not got laws and practice which err on OUR SIDE as it once did, when our children were raised to love America, when we stood tall and proud and threatening. An AMerica which no one fears is no AMerica and it's exactly what we have now; a president who ticked off Europe through trying to get them to use 'stimulus packages' of their own (Germany didn't and they are THRIVING now), who went to Asia and got ZIP, who's put us horribly in debt to CHina, who's printing $600 billion to 'help'!!, etc etc...very scary times.

Yeah, the same China who is helping N. Korea build their nuke facility.

It's not. It's called self defense. But the leftards think the attacker is the victim.

When I reincarnate I will become a brain surgeon and will study the lefty brain to see if circuits haven't been connected the right away. It seems like + is - and - is + in theirs.

Sounds good to me, Shadow, but then I'm an extreme right-wing hawk. I can hear the Duck quacking already.

Actually FrogBurger there has been a study of the "Leftist" brain and it was found that it is actually hardwired backwards from those on the Right. I can't find the link right off hand but when I do I will be sure to pass it along. That way you can come back as something more enjoyable than a psychologist or brain surgeon.

Thanks Z for the "plug". I think a lot of folks would enjoy Thomas' book. I have just tried to present a tidbit of it to sort of tempt the appetite of those who enjoy reading.

Nah silvrlady, I'm getting ready to catch Bristol on Dancing with the Stars.

If she wins I'm betting she comes out with a diet tips book that bulk buys to No. 1.

Z said...

the book sounds GREAT, Ticker.

Ducky, you aren't bugging me when you slam Bristol, sorry...I hate to disappoint you.
I don't watch that show...surprised YOU DO :-) Enjoy.
They should leave the winning to the judges, not tweeters. How stupid.
She apparently dances like a brick....

Cube,

Actually, the North Korean nuclear facilities are already built, courtesy of US dollars provided by President Clinton.

There's no danger from them though, because Madge Albright gave Kim Jong-il a Michael Jordan basketball in exchange for an agreement not to build nukes with the nuclear weapons program we paid for.

The sad thing is, I'm not joking.

FrogBurger said...

I can't stand dancing with the stars. Not surprised Ducky is watching. It must turn him on actually.

beamish said...

FB,

Ducky's just up in arms because Bristol Palin's run on DWTS is the only clear rebuttal to vote fraud allegations his side can come up with.

FrogBurger said...

Beamish that's a good one.

I'm sure Ducky is secretly voting for her using his cool iphone.

I'm just happy a commie like him is enjoying a type of TV show that is the symbol of capitalism and consumerism.

beamish said...

Well you know how it will go.

Someone will want to talk about how JFK and LBJ got more votes in Tarrant County, Texas than people that actually lived there and Ducky will sputter something about Bristol Palin winning DWTS. That's the only "vote fraud" the lifeless left could give a damn about.

FrogBurger said...

That must go with the brain being wired the wrong way, Beamish. They have weird priorities.

Ducky's here said...

Beamish !

I used that vote fraud line at mustang's. Stop stealing my material. You did it at Beak's also.

Just as long as the box is reinforced so no innocents get injured...

Never watched the show, & don't intend to start. Couldn't even tell you the chanel. Amateur night at the Roxie never appealed to me.

Ducky,

You're just as predictable as a light switch, but sadly not nearly as intelligent as one.
