Richard, I can tell you also that Carhart didn't even bat an eyelash when asked. The only reason I got involved (I'm Seavey) is because of rules govering charitable giving from companies that also do business with the DoD. Carhart was awesome in this, and they didn't even make a big deal of their huge contribution here. So good on them. I know that my coworker who handles the Legion's Twitter is sending this out today occasionally.

Alas, I am relegated to only one mention by Teh Yon, and that was largely indifferent. Which hurts my feelings, because I think he is batshit crazy, and opine on that belief nearly daily.

I'm with you Froggy. Just to review, DHS says returning vets should be regarded as a potential threat. Justice says threats to the US, even among citizens, can be determined by the executive, absent ANY legal recourse, with lethal action. I hope no tea partiers, veterans or Sarah Palin (for instance) vacation in Belize. The three prongs that Holder put forth all seem to be actionable, and justiciable by the Executive Branch alone. Why anyone would think that is a good idea is beyond me. I have no problem with killing Awlaki, but like Froggy, I would prefer this done in a FISA court.

Thanks Matt. But let's be honest, Goblin did have one righteous Thor's Hammer of a cock though. It had so much gravity from its density that it kept pulling my eye into its orbit.

Although it was nice to see that Bob, that case will be moot here in 3 weeks when the Supremes take up Alvarez. Granted I liked the decision, but not sure it will have any long-term effect. Hopefully the Supremes will rule the same way, but I am not optimistic.

I'm confused about one of the YouTube comments: "Who the hell is this gay lord puppet think he is" I don't know what this means. Are you a puppet master who only has gay puppets? Or are you a gay puppet? Or are you a puppet, but an exalted one, sort of the Grand Foobah of all Gay Puppets? And, are gay puppets (and strait ones) imbued with some sort of self-consciousness? Were you spawned in a basement by a lederhosen/Beegies listening Gepetto? Have you, Jimbo, ever taken another another puppets wooden schlong in your hand/mouth or other orifice?

If the bill said that, or was limited to uniformed personnel (LEO types) or any number of other limitations, it might be perfectly fine, but that isn't the way this bill is drafted.

SoldiersMom, those folks are already eligible: Federal civilian employees who die of injuries in connection with their service with an armed force in a contingency operation are eligible to receive a United States flag. 10 U.S.C. § 1482a. So, this bill would not change the hypothetical you pose here.

From TSA: I write to you today on behalf of the Office of Disability Policy and Outreach (ODPO) at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). ODPO has partnered with various disability-related organizations to facilitate mutual understanding and the exchange of information regarding travel concerns of their constituency. This coalition of over seventy (70) groups and organizations was formed to assist TSA better understand the concerns of persons with disabilities and medical conditions. This coalition continues to play a vital role and has, in several instances, raised concerns which have assisted TSA with the evaluation and redrafting of procedure. It has also helped TSA identify areas in which to focus and provide additional training. ODPO’s function compared to other similar Federal entities is unique. ODPO reviews, investigates and adjudicates complaints that allege discrimination on the basis of disability by TSA stakeholders. As a result, this may include issues that relate to our service members as well as veterans such as the use of prosthetics, traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder. In addition, ODPO serves as the primary point of contact within TSA for the disability policy agenda of the Department of Homeland Security. Furthermore, TSA has partnered with the Department of Defense and developed procedures for our wounded warriors through TSA’s Military Severely Injured Program. The purpose of this program is to support and facilitate the movement of injured service members, and their accompanying family members, through the security screening process at the nation's airports. In furtherance of our commitment to those who also have a primary responsibility to secure our country as well as those that have done so in the past, we would like to initiate contact with your organization, and similar organizations, to develop a similar alliance. ODPO would like to open an ongoing dialogue with willing organizations regarding travel-related interests of veterans with medical concerns, as well as active duty military personnel, and their families. We would also like to let you know that we are available to respond to your constituents’ informational needs—whether it be via teleconference or in-person presentations at your meetings, conferences or conventions. We would be interested in discussing your organization’s participation in this alliance at you earliest convenience. ODPO envisions the alliance serving as a forum to gather and exchange information related to travel, to gather input from organizational constituencies regarding issues of mutual concern, and to collaborate with the leaders of these organizations to address those concerns. Sincerely, Bryan W. Hudson, Esquire Program Analyst Office of Disability Policy and Outreach Office of the Special Counselor Transportation Security Administration Department of Homeland Security 601 South 12th Street, Room E11-203S Arlington, VA 20598 Office (571) 227-4122

That was from over a year ago. TSA has reached out to the Legion among other groups, and asked to look at any problems that veterans with Prosthesis and other problems are having. I can get you more info on it, but I don't have it on me. Don't get me wrong, TSA annoys the ever loving shit out of me, but they appear (at the national level anyway) to be reaching out to make it as least intensive as possible.
