Man Detained at Airport After Announcing ‘I Have a Bomb In My A**”

Apparently the primary qualifications for being an airport security screener are having an IQ under 80, and no sense of humor whatsoever.

They held this guy for five days.  That’ll teach him to get mouthy with authoriteh.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
