Be Prepared to Be Groped at Amtrak and Beyond

You know it's coming.

Sen. Charles Schumer is calling for for a "no-ride list" for Amtrak trains, Can pat downs be far behind?

Most disturbing he is talking about even harrasment funding for passengers of commuter trains.

Schumer said he would push for added funding for rail security and commuter and passenger train track inspections and more monitoring of stations nationwide.

"Circumstances demand we make adjustments by increasing funding to enhance rail safety and monitoring on commuter rail transit and screening who gets on Amtrak passenger trains, so that we can provide a greater level of security to the public," Schumer said at a press conference.


  1. Thank heavens we killed Osama when we did and found those plans to attack trains here in the U.S.

    Maybe we should outfit each train and bus station with a waterboard room.

  2. And Schumer hits the fan...

  3. He's such a reactionary it's embarrassing. This man wouldn't know a proactive thought if his wife asked him what he wanted for dinner that morning at breakfast. He's a glorified weathercock shifting with every left leaning poll that comes out.

  4. Don't you people realize the tremendous risk from terrorists crashing trains into skyscrapers?

  5. Schumer rides Amtrak all the time when commuting to D.C.
    He is always asking for more money for Amtrak.
