Wow, Great Video. http://beforeitsnews.com/story/2370/221/Nazi_Checkpoints_All_Over_California:_Welcome_To_The_Police_State.html Even I know that police can't detain you for no reason ... and yet I'd probably pull off to the side or answer questions and get out my papers. Great Video.

You have to agree.

The loss of rights in the USA will drive a backlash in voters, a cultural backlash, a backlash against the prison military industrial complex, a Backlash against Faux Conservative Nazis!!

There used to be laws against impeding commerce as well. Business people should be Backlashing Against this Faux War on Terror. Were are the business people voting against the war on terror that increases the cost of business, and eventually will be higher taxes on businesses (because of the public debt and reduced public services as public sector jobs continue to be cut, higher transportation costs, and slower shipping times)

I watched the video clip and read all the comments on that site. It seems like many people fully support these checkpoints. They buy into the story that it's for illegal immigration. Yet all the border patrol do is ask a single question, and let you on your way if you answer a simple "yes".

Any illegal immigrant who understands and speaks just a small amount of English would probably get through these checkpoints with relative ease. Unless they screen for Hispanics and try to make them pull off for further questioning. I'm not sure if they screen like that or not, but it wouldn't be surprising.

This isn't really anything new though. When I lived in California back around 2005, at the state borders of CA/AZ and CA/NV they'd occasionally have a K9 cop ask if you are an American citizen. Then they'd circle around your car with drug sniffing dog. They'd either let you continue with your business, or have you pull off to the side. They tried to get me to pull off to the side once. I had just waited in line for fifteen minutes already and didn't want to waste anymore time, so I just played dumb and kept driving. No one chased after me or anything.

Yeah, maybe the police look for signs that you are dirty, haven't had a recent shower, smell like body oder, slept in your clothes, have twigs in your hair, drive a van or truck full of people, etc ....

If pretend we are military, then they might be looking for radio-active readings, signs of radio-active poisoning, sign of biological disease, transportation of something but looking out of place.

Maybe the debate is like Alex Jones says. It is more about fear, power, and continuing to fund all the military, DHS, Border Protection Agency, and all 14 of our Intelligence Agencies. Oh and re-electing NEOCON politiicans.

The last Air Force air show I attended this summer in California required the now typical, "put any metal objects in the basket and walk through the scanner please". Wore my Occupy hat to keep the sun off. One serviceman's eyes bugged out, another noticed but didn't say anything.

They used to run supposed "sobriety check points" in a nearby city, but the real reason was to get illegal aliens with no driver license/ no registration and their cars off the road. Surprisingly they don't get deported. The catch 22 is that they are illegal and can't get a license or registration even if they wanted. They tow the cars, but the impound fees are so high that they can't afford to reclaim them. So they buy another car with tags that are still good for 6 months or more, so they don't get pulled over, and the cycle repeats itself. I don't know who profits more, the towing company, or the department running the "check point".

Yes, I don't have any experience with security other than at the airport. I guess if you flight a plane or captain a boat, then you can probably search or request to search people. I suppose that makes sense. You don't know if someone coming on your boat has contraband, or guns, or bombs, or chemicals, or compressed gas, etc...

Seems pretty weird to go to a ball game and get TSA or DHS security search areas. I guess Alex Jones says they have them all over Texas and I think they want them in Malls... maybe?

I don't know what to think about the immigration issues. I met a couple of guys that had to pay lawyers to get relatives out of jail who were legal. I think one guy was the son inlaw. So I guess many people are put through the ringer by the system and they are legal.
