TSA is a government institution designed to harass citizens, get them used to being controlled, bless the security industrial complex and airlines, and increase national debt to bless the Federal Reserve private shareholders who monetize that debt.
TSA has no motivation to make a profit and no good reason to provide excellent service for competitive market prices. Let the airlines pay for their own security. Stop stealing from the public to pay for the TSA, especially those who don’t fly.
The public is awakening. If you’re awake then awaken your friends, family and neighbors.

I considered calling this article, “The Tyranny of Unconditional Denial.”
Suppose you submit an application requesting governmental permission to build on your private property after you’ve done your best to conform to their laws and ordinances. You are granted approval based upon certain well-stated conditions that you must resolve. That’s good government. It reminds me of the Mormon scripture:
I, the Lord, am bound when ye do what I say; but when ye do not what I say, ye have no promise.—D&C 82:10
Instead, suppose you submit the same application but are unconditionally denied. You may have spent your family’s fortune and are now faced with an impenetrable roadblock. Should you rectify the situation, borrow money, incur whatever new costs are required and resubmit?
What if your government rejects your application again, presents you with another roadblock, or introduces a new roadblock just to thwart your progress? That’s bad government.
Now suppose instead the government upholds inalienable property rights—that your right to own property is God-given and existed long before governments were formed, and refrains from dictating what you can or cannot do on your own property as long as you are not harming your neighbors and taking away their rights, that’s better government.
While it is easy to create laws and ordinances, enforcing them requires the use of force—application denials, fines, liens, confiscation or even imprisonment. Considering property rights were really never delegated to the government, they have been usurped as laws were corrupted.
When lawyers dictate the actions in government you can expect tyranny. Using cunning and deceptive words and references to legal ambiguity, they may dictate approvals or denials based upon their personal whims and justify it either way by referring to the same written laws and ordinances.
If government approves one application upon certain conditions and denies another application because of certain conditions, you can be sure it is not a government of laws, and surely does not derive “their just powers by the consent of the governed.” When this happens it must either reformed by good men and women in leadership positions or abolished by the People.
—That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. — Declaration of Independence

During the Brigham Young administration alone, Mormons founded nearly four hundred settlements with three hundred more thereafter.
Surveyors drafted township plats. Pioneers moved onto their land with no regulations other than to follow the golden rule.
Today Utah County’s Land-Use Ordinances are 290 pages. How many violate inalienable private property rights as implied by The Declaration of Independence, stated in Article 1, Section 1 of the Utah Constitution and probably every other state’s constitution?
For example, suppose you are denied subdivision approval because Utah County will not recognize your private road easements even though they are clearly stated as enforceable for perpetuity on your agricultural subdivision plat. Do you want government to tell you that you cannot build on your own property without first building and paving an interior road and turning ownership over to them?
Or suppose the county health department decides they don’t approve of your well water quality and demands you buy expensive filtration equipment. Does government have the right to dictate whether or not you can drink your own water, distill it or import it?
Notice the Utah County Code is also more than 200 pages.
Do these codes and ordinances truly represent the consent of the governed?
If you own property in Utah County, especially outside of the cities, try and develop it and you’ll discover the unconstitutional burdens placed upon you. Remember, every ordinance is backed by the use of force.
Are Mormon Utah County government employees worried about their eternal exaltation regarding how well they defend the U.S. Constitution, uphold free agency, and oppose socialism and the regulatory state that burdens mankind, requires non-limited government, encourages debt, and enslaves citizens via legalized theft (also known as taxation)?
How do Mormons who create and enforce these ordinances interpret versus 7 of D&C 98:5-7? I sincerely want to know.
5 And that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me.
6 Therefore, I, the Lord, justify you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land;
7 And as pertaining to law of man, whatsoever is more or less than this, cometh of evil.
The only exception I can find in Mormon scriptures is D&C 101:79:
Therefore, it is not right that any man should be in bondage one to another.
Of all the citizens in the United States, as far as I know, Mormons are the only group whose scriptures specifically affirms and endorses the U.S. Constitution. I’d expect Utah government to lead the nation in their resolve to uphold it, especially in Utah County—home of Brigham Young University and the Mormon Missionary Training Center.
I’d be happy to discuss this anytime in public or private. Please enlighten my understanding.
Every free state must ready their defense against internal tyranny.
Cunning deceit, false charges, made-up evidence and learned lawyers. This Book of Mormon’s description sounds like the current policy towards declared homeland terrorists and whistleblowers:
13 Nevertheless, there were some among them who thought to question them, that by their cunning devices they might catch them in their words, that they might find witness against them, that they might deliver them to their judges that they might be judged according to the law, and that they might be slain or cast into prison, according to the crime which they could make appear or witness against them.
14 Now it was those men who sought to destroy them, who were lawyers, who were hired or appointed by the people to administer the law at their times of trials, or at the trials of the crimes of the people before the judges.
15 Now these lawyers were learned in all the arts and cunning of the people; and this was to enable them that they might be skilful in their profession. — Alma 10:13-15
An excellent article that enlightens our thinking:
…if the minimum wage is $10 per hour, and a worker only produces $8 of goods or services per hour, he will never be hired. Naturally, with a little experience, an unproductive (in the economic sense of the word) worker becomes more productive with job experience. But with a minimum wage, how is the worker supposed to get his first job? He can’t. As a result, many workers caught up in this catch-22 become long-term welfare recipients or they turn to black markets where they are branded criminals by the legal system.
