  1. That's Rand's son. Here is a pic of the two of them and Ron together, from Wikipeda, for a comparison:

    1. I have no idea why this stuff is posted at all. What does it have to do with anything?

    2. Idiots. It has to do with the fact that Rand Paul has been harassed by the TSA. Now his son.

    3. Yeah, people sure won't be interested in this story.

    4. LOL, anonymous called me an idiot.

      Americans and their libido for the ugly.

  3. He's an adult, no longer his parents' responsibility. Just goes to show principles are not genetic but behaviors are environmental.

    1. No not environmental but simply he choose to act stupidly. Human stupidity is limitless.

    2. I don't think this is a big deal. A lot of 19 year-olds probably don't get that acceptable behavior at airports post 9/11 is much different than other places. The only reason this is news is because of the possibility that he was held to an unfair standard by the TSA because of his father's political positions.

      That said, your statement is ridiculous because there is a huge hereditary component to alcoholism. Same with intelligence and personality. Behaviors are both nature and nurture.

    3. Yeah, I never did anything stupid when I was 19.

      Don't know a thing about this kid and I gave up on Rand long ago, but still. A 19 year old did some thing silly, nobody got hurt. Time to move on.

  4. reeks of targeting the first family of anti-TSA

  5. Unfortunate that it happened, but chock it up to another life lesson.

    However, that last charge of "CONSUME BEER/WINE UNDERAGE" is from a totally BS law. Ironically wouldn't be of issue if he were smoking. It's not like that nearly anywhere else in the world (and several countries it's 16) and wasn't like that a few decades ago in the US either.

    The bad thing is that since he's not underage these will be on his record forever now

      Hold on NPC, why do you assume to know the facts? Have you seen a video or talked to non-government eye witnesses? If so, please share this information with us.

      One fact I can see already in error is that the authorities state "DISORDERLY CONDUCT AT BUS/RR STATION" and at the same time state that Mr. Paul was arrested at an AIRPORT. Typo? Nevertheless an error. For this, and other reasons, it is best to assume that other facts provided to you by the authorities are in also error.

    2. I'm not sure about the airports where you are, but the ones near me have bus stops. Many also have light rail stations included.

  6. Drinking underage is no big deal. The drinking age, if there should be one at all, should be far lower.

    I'm a big believer in families introducing alcohol to teenagers at dinner. Let them experience it safely so that they'll be apt to make (hopefully) better decisions when they are independent.

    Another example of our state extending adolescence for far too long. That said, drinking underage before getting on a plane was a terrible idea.

    This is why I'd never be a cop: I wouldn't want to arrest people for stupid things.

  7. People....use your fucking heads when you drink please. Don't drink to drunkenness. Is that really so hard?

    1. What fun would that be?

    2. College kids shouldn't "drink to drunkenness." Good luck with that. Why else would a college kid drink? The great taste and less filling?

      Delete
    3. It's not hard, but sometimes it's more fun to get totally hammered.

    4. "Don't drink to drunkenness"

      That doesn't compute. What is the point, then? I don't drink because I just love the taste of scotch, I drink because of the effects of the scotch.

      Delete
    5. Depends on the scotch. If it's a Glenfiddich 18 or 21 I'm going to savor it for the taste. It would be a waste of good scotch (and money) to get drunk off of. Now anything in the 12 to 15 year range is going down the hatch until I'm warm and fuzzy inside.

    6. Glenfiddich 18 yr...fine choice. However the ridiculous rate of duty I have to pay for it means I can only savour it occasionally like at Hogmanay. I normally prefer to get that special state of wastedness only whisky can provide, so its usually cheaper stuff for me. It was £35 ($56.41) and that was on a discount. And I live in Scotland. Couple of hours drive from where its distilled.

    7. Glenfiddich 18 yr old....nice choice. However, the ridiculous rate of duty I have to pay on a bottle means I can only savour it on occasions like Hogmanay. Since I'm quite partial to the special state of wastedness only whisky can provide its normally cheaper/younger models for me. It cost me £35 ($56). And I live in Scotland. Couple of hours drive away from where its distilled, in fact. It ain't like Saudi Arabia here where the locals get a massive discount on the product. Although it may be a blessing in disguise considering how much us Scots like a drink ;)

  8. I guess he missed class today. this cannot compare to Bush's girls, can it?

  9. Imagine that, a son in the Paul family not listening to the counsel of his father.

    Ron to Rand: Son, do not take any Congressional junkets, especially not to Israel, and stay away from those darn Neocons.

    Rand to William: Son, do not cause any problems, because you are in the spotlight, and stay away from darn liquor until you are 21.

    It is a bit of karmic payback, Rand.

    1. Rand's trip to Israel is being paid with private funds. Fail.

  10. I work for a consulting company where everyone travels. I'm on a plane at least twice a week. I have never done this myself, but I've witnessed and personally know people who have gotten completely wasted, been kicked off planes, not been allowed on planes, and one guy who had to be escorted off a plane by security due to drunkenness and belligerence. None of the people I know or saw were ever actually arrested. It does make me wonder if William was totally blasted, or if he was picked on because of who he is.

  11. Maybe he was bummed that his dad was off sucking up to Zionists, disgracing his grandfather's legacy, so he got loaded to try to forget about it.
