61-Year-Old Woman Arrested For Groping TSA Agent

Although stories involving groping allegations and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) have become commonplace, this one stands apart. On July 14, a 61-year-old woman from Longmont, Colo., was arrested at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport for sexually assaulting a female TSA agent.

Whether The Government Wants Us To Or Not!

We don’t need no stinkin’ permission to exercise our rights. We need to exercise our rights whether the government wants us to or not. I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my views with readers of the Personal Liberty Digest™, and am looking forward to doing so as often as possible.

Guide Offers Advice For Interacting With Police During Tech Searches

With so many recent, conflicting court decisions on what police and other law enforcement officials can and cannot do regarding citizens’ technological property, it is easy for one to get confused about his or her rights. With this in mind, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) recently released the “Know Your Rights” guide, which offers a variety of tips on interacting with officials during searches and seizures of cellphones, computers and more.

Learn to Park, Ya Big Jerk

I pulled into the parking lot with a couple of minutes to spare before my appointment. I could see a parking spot available. But as I approached, I saw that the car on the left spilled over into “my” spot by half a foot. Yes, I could still pull into the space. But the only way out of my car would have been to climb out the sunroof.

The UPSA

How long before every aspect of government has its own police force? Apparently, we are nearly there, as an 83-year-old New York woman found out on June 25. On that day, Darbe Pitofsky threw a brown bag filled with old papers in a city litter basket — a crime for which a city sanitation worker wrote a summons.

Murdoch-Owned Tabloid To Close Down After Public Outcry Against Hacking Scandal

One of Britain’s oldest newspapers, the tabloid News of the World, will shut down after printing its Sunday issue, according to CNN. The tabloid’s parent company, News International, is owned by the massive Rupert Murdoch media conglomerate News Corp. News international Chairman James Murdoch, who is Rupert Murdoch’s son, said the tabloid had been “sullied” by a hacking scandal that has rocked the foundations of the newspaper industry.

The Barbecue Of Independence

This past Monday evening, I mused silently for a moment about the “reason for the season,” so to speak. Taking in the patriotic panorama around me, I couldn’t help but wonder: How many of these people have spent a single moment wondering why we’re not at work today?

Casey Anthony Not Guilty Of Murder, Guilty Of Lying

Today, the 12-member jury in the Casey Anthony trial returned a verdict: Anthony is not guilty of first-degree murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie. However, she was convicted of lying to the police and will be sentenced at 9 a.m. on Thursday. “The verdict means 25-year-old Anthony was found not guilty of all charges except for four counts of providing false information to law enforcement officer. She will be spared a death sentence, but could still potentially face years behind bars in a Florida prison,” the Orlando Sentinel reported.

The Avaricious Progressive Homo Sapiens

Americans are easy prey when it comes to political distraction debates. Proposed card-check legislation is a distraction. Our obsessive meddling in Middle Eastern countries is a distraction. All these are important issues, but they are merely subcategories of the foundational issue that Americans should be focused on: loss of freedom.

The Foundation Of Liberty

Last year, we reprinted the Declaration of Independence for Independence Day. I was fascinated by some of the comments it received. More people than I anticipated recognized that our government today has taken on many of the characteristics of the British government that the Founders sought to “dissolve the political bands” of 235 years ago.
