Doesn't this video make you sick? But, there is a way to avoid all this. If you are Federal Reserve chairman, you don't have to go through any of this. On December 7, 2009, Fed Chairman gave a talk before the Washington D.C. Economics Club. I attended the event.This is what I reported the next day:
Yesterday at the Economic Club of Washington D.C. luncheon, where Ben Bernanke spoke, during the Q & A he was asked what he liked best about being Fed chairman.Two days later I followed up with this report:
He joked, "Moving quickly through airport screening lines."
As the old saying goes, there is probably an element truth to this "joke." After all what best epitomizes, power and some kind of sick superiority then being able to move through an airport security line without having having to empty your pockets, take your shoes off and stand with arms spread for a wand inspection? All the while cruising through with two armed guards.
As I reported earlier this week, Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke bragged about being able to go through airport security without being screened. He also teased the crowd and said he could carry a container with more than three announces of liquid. Well it turns out lots of politicians get this VIP treatment.
The Internet posting of the TSA 93 page, airline passenger screening playbook was a real eye opener. Not only have TSA’s screeners made up their own rules, politicians get special treatment, reports Paul Huebl.
Members of Congress, governors and lieutenant governors, the mayor of Washington, D.C., and their immediate families all get special treatment and are not screened.
That's right, become a top grade sleazeball politician or bureaucrat and you are not screened.
BTW: I am convinced it is Obama Administration operative Cass Sunstein, who is behind these "options". See The Obama Administration From Nudge to Grope. I'm sure he is planning many more nasty options for us, in many parts of our lives.
