“… Against All Enemies, Foreign…”

by De Doc

“… And Domestic.”

If the facts of the case are as reported here, sounds like some Federal employees and officers have forgotten a few things. Like, oh, their allegiance to the Constitution?

(See: the Bill Of Rights, you wretches.)

zombyboy may be right; for all I know, Ms. Davis may well not be “a person I would like”. It hardly matters in such a case; there is no reason that bus riders, merely passing through a piece of federal property, should be subject to random ID checks — much less charged with crimes, much less told she will be arrested if she ever goes to such-and-such a place again.

What good will it do us to win victory over Islamicists and other foreign threats to our liberty, if petty government functionaries take it away from us at home?

I hope the bullies who acted in this matter find new careers.

Food services, I’m thinking — “…fries with that?”

I will watch this case with some interest.
