33 of the Day

Colorado Lawyer Files Injunction Against Janet Napolitano and TSA:
Currently, there are over 330 million citizens of the United States, none of whom have ever engaged in any terrorist activity onboard a commercial airliner, at any time or place on the planet Earth.
Wiki lists the US population at almost 310.8 million.

The lawsuit is generally admirable--
Colorado lawyer, Gary Fielder, has filed for a Permanent Restraining Order in federal district court against Janet Napolitano, John Pistole, the Department of Homeland Security and the TSA. Attorney Fielder made headlines earlier this year when he refused to go through a naked body scanner installed at a Colorado courthouse. He has now filed a Complaint for Injunctive Relief to stop the naked body scanners and enhanced pat downs at our nation's airports.

In his complaint, he details his personal story of how he and his daughters were treated during an "enhanced pat down" by the TSA on a recent trip to San Diego, describing the TSA agents' behavior as "disgusting, unconscionable, sexual in nature, unnecessary and a complete violation of his and his children's constitutional rights."
-- but the 33 gives me pause. And if the US does have 330 million people, watch out!

Here's a bonus related 33:
"The grain grown to produce fuel in the US [in 2009] was enough to feed 330 million people for one year at average world consumption levels"...

In para 71 of his complaint, Fielder asserts that non-citizens don't have constitutional rights. This is wrong, and unnecessary to his argument.

"That is such an inane, false, discredited proposition that no responsible person would ever make that claim."
