Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Ignorance + Authority = Thugs with Badges

From We are Change Chicago, documenting the rise of the Brownshirts. 

Following my video back on July 5th "TSA Invades Chicago's Union Station", I went back to Chicago's Union Station on July 18th to meet with the Director of "Why in The World are they are Spraying Mike Murphy". Before I met with Mike; I walked around Union Station to see if TSA was still lurking around the Union Station Grounds. As I approached Metro's Union Station Restaurant I spotted a group of TSA agents about to eat lunch, so I decided to document them again at Chicago's Union Station. As I began filming I was approached by a member of Amtrak Police who noticed me from my prior TSA video. The Amtrak Police officer admitted to me that the government has seen and sent my TSA video over to them for reviewing. I was also told not to film TSA inside the Amtrak Passenger area, and if I did, I would be arrested for trespassing. 

The bigger question is- should the American public have a right to film TSA agents? Or should we trust them with securing our airlines, railways, and buses?

"Any seasoned journalist knows you follow policies and procedures."

And that, friends is how they go outside the rule of law to do whatever they damn well please, because it is "policy". I hope no one looses brain cells watching this video.

Listen to how a professional journalist has a "permit" and a citizen with a camera is dung under their feet.

Update: You know what? Chicago doesn't deserve the yummy, tasty goodness of ChickFilA.  You are you're own worst enemy, Mobster-town.
