Our Rulers delayed a flight departing from JFK because — get this — a “passenger on the plane had a duffel traveling bag that had the word ‘ISIS’ on it… (http://www.kare11.com/story/news/local/2014/09/18/twin-cities-sun-country-flight-delayed-at-jfk-after-security-concerns/15856071/)” Actually, the mark only looked like the word “ISIS” and then only in the fevered imaginations of the Warriors on the Constitu-sorry, Terror. The I-word was instead the “logo of a travel agency appearing similar to ISIS insignia. The travel agency had given out bags with the logo to a travel group on the plane.”

No matter: this phantom “triggered a security alert. … the plane and luggage were swept, but nothing was found.” No, really? Ten hapless victims were “taken off the plane” and “questioned by police and FBI agents…” Wonder if they had to enhance the Tourist Ten’s interrogations or if these dastardly criminals immediately confessed their intentions to see the sights and spend money in Amerika’s devastated economy.

Ninety minutes later, the flight departed, with the TSA blaming its hysteria on the airline: “Upon landing at JFK, the flight crew requested that the airplane be screened for explosives,” prattled one of the agency’s spokesliars. “An explosive detection canine cleared the aircraft for continued operation.”

Whew! Saved from Insignia! Hmmm… S … I …I better watch out: a few more initials, and an explosive detection canine will be clearing this blog for continued operation…

You’ll recall that last week, Our fearless Rulers held a flight for 90 minutes while summoning the FBI, cops, and “an explosive detection canine” (http://www.lewrockwell.com/lrc-blog/land-of-the-slave-home-of-the-wuss/)—all because tourists aboard carried luggage with the “logo of a travel agency appearing similar to ISIS insignia.”

Well. Chris Durkin not only reads LRC, he’s as patriotic a serf as I. He therefore alerted me to a company out there that calls itself ISIS, and I duly publicize this obvious terrorist-wannabe per the ubiquitous advice, “See Something, Say Something.” Chris’ ISIS ought to know better, too: it exploits the “security” scam, or, as its homepage intones, it “provid[es] international security and intelligence services (https://public.isishq.com/public/SitePages/Home.aspx).” (For an extra hoot, catch the revolving montage’s shot of the old coots in suits with black bands obscuring their eyes, as if anything worse than 20 extra pounds menaces them.) At any rate, I hereby warn the TSA that another ISIS is on the loose. Let’s hope the agency’s crack ISIS-fighters can work with the NSA’s crack eavesdroppers to monitor these International Security and Intelligence Servants. That way, when said Servants next show up at an airport clutching their ISIS-emblazoned bags, the FBI, cops, and explosive detection canines will already be standing by. Yes, yes, I know, all you grateful passengers: Chris and I have probably shaved 15 or 20 minutes off the hour and a half this nonsense will delay your flight. You can show your appreciation by purchasing my two novels, Halestorm (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008YF7H9A/ref=as_li_ss_til?tag=lewrockwell&camp=0&creative=0&linkCode=as4&creativeASIN=B008YF7H9A&adid=0XNVWDNWMBR3Y6152EMD) and Abducting Arnold (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00H6J50T4/ref=as_li_ss_til?tag=lewrockwell&camp=0&creative=0&linkCode=as4&creativeASIN=B00H6J50T4&adid=0XVJYQCVYAK1D4ZREXZ3). Both describe the actual perils our ancestors confronted as they fought for freedom, versus the faux ones the corporate police-state dreams up.

Second, the USSA has no monopoly on wusses: way too many curse Australia as well. We might suppose a country renowned for its outback, Crocodile Dundee and beer-guzzling mates is drowning in he-men, but alas, it’s as craven as ours. Rick B. sends this story about “a Melbourne man [who] was hauled off a Tiger Airways flight by federal police (http://www.theage.com.au/national/passenger-ejected-from-flight-over-notebook-doodles-20140920-10jrhs.html) on Saturday after claims he was seen doodling and writing sentences in a notebook satirising the current terrorism threat.” A satirist, huh? No wonder the Aussie Warriors on Decency-sorry, Terror trembled in their jackboots. Satirists endanger them almost as badly as the truth does.

And finally, David Martin, a.k.a., DC Dave, contributes this poetic commentary on Amerika’s tragic state:

Say Again (http://www.dcdave.com/poet3/p061698b.html)

“O say does that star-spangled
Banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free
And the home of the brave?”
The question’s still a good one
But these days you have to wonder
Not about the symbol over
But the people under.

And Down Under, too.
