National End the Fed weekend, Nov 20-22nd

Two years ago on November 22nd, 2008 a movement started known as End the Fed.  Rallies were held nationwide at all Federal Reserve branches in the hopes of spreading the message to abolish the central bank and the fiat currency empire.  In 2009 momentum in the movement continued to grow following all of the Fed’s bail outs, and pretty soon the Audit the Fed message was being easily accepted by the majority of Americans.  This become evident when Ron Paul’s audit the fed bill, a bill that in the past had failed to get more than a dozen cosponsors, quickly grew to 295 cosponsors.  Thanks to the End the Fed movement and Ron Paul, the shadowy Federal Reserve bank was suddenly being scrutinized and talked about in mainstream America.  People were beginning to question its actions and wonder if it was really helping or hurting the economy.  Sadly, bipartisan politics and shady back room dealings put an end to bill, and pretty soon all the democrats co-sponsoring it did a flip flop and voted it out of a financial overhaul bill.

But now the iron is hot for the striking to Audit and End The Fed.  There is now a Republican majority in the House of Representatives (who had unanimously supported the Audit the Fed bill in the last Congress), Ron Paul is destined to be the head of the Committee on Monetary Policy which oversees the Fed, Rand Paul is a definite co-sponsor of an audit bill in the Senate, and the Fed just announcing QE2 has pissed off many people and has drawn harsh criticism from economists and other countries from around the world.

This weekend we are picking up where we left off and are launching nationwide End the Fed protests once again at all the Fed Branches around the country.  The events are scheduled Sat – Mon, Nov 20th – 22nd, and you should definitely consider going to one in your area.  More information about these events can be found at the following locations:

Don’t Touch my Junk and National TSA Opt Out Day

Recently a 31 year old man, John Tyner, chose to opt out of the newly installed TSA full body scanners when he was going through airport security.  Instead of getting an invasive full body scan, the TSA then decided to give him a pat down that included rubbing up and down on his inner thighs.  While the TSA agent was describing the procedure, Tyner told the agent that if he touched his junk then he would have him arrested.  The agent then responded by calling extra security and had him removed from the airport and threatened to have him fined $10,000.  While this all was happening, Tyner was recording everything on the smartphone in his pocket and this video has gone viral online.

More stories have been coming out recently about young children being groped by TSA agents, while adults have equivocated the pat down procedures to being molested.  Also there have been some concerns about the radiation of full body scanners possibly causing skin cancer.  All of these ridiculous new TSA safety procedures have ticked off quite a few people and many have been engaging in civil disobedience while going through airport security.  To focus these efforts, there is now a nationwide Opt Out Day set for November 24th where people are encouraged to opt out of the full body scanners and elect to do the pat down.

As more people do this, the TSA will be taken off guard because they don’t have the resources to handle that many special requests to opt out.  I’d even consider taking this approach one step further and follow John Tyner’s lead by telling them to don’t touch your junk, but you have to be ready to face the consequences of missing your flight.  However, no one is above the law and molestation is molestation no matter who you are.  The government gets no exceptions.
