Miss USA molested by TSA

Why would anyone travel to the USA anymore? To those readers inside the US gulag the world is increasingly concerned about the scans and worse required when traveling to the USA. Just look at the inbound tourist numbers if you don't believe me. It has become a very sad fact that international travelers have far less concerns traveling to Communist China than they do visiting the Fascist USA.

From the US Bill of Rights ~
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Ms. USA 2003 Susie Castillo is a frequent flyer, but rethinks her travel plans after a recent incident at Dallas airport. Castillo, an actress, says that she was sexually harassed by TSA employees while flying out of the Washington DC-area hub. In this video she explains how she opted out of a body scan machine and, as a result, was humiliated and hassled by a government employee. Has it come to choosing between a dangerous machine or molestation? Castillo discusses her encounter moments later here.

Bernanke speaks, dollar falls

From: RTAmerica | Apr 27, 2011

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke held a press conference today to discuss the dilemma of the US dollar. Will his coming clean do anything to save Americans from the economic slump as the dollar hits a three year low against other currencies? The Market Ticker's Karl Denninger says Americans should not be quick to trust Bernanke, as the dollar is only further sacrificed to serve his best interests and not that of the public that is being hit hard by the state of the economy.

Gerald Celente: 'Bernanke devaluing the dollar'

From: RTAmerica | Apr 27, 2011

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke spoke to the press today during an undeniably dire time for the American economy. During that very speech, the US dollar hit a three year low and gas prices rose yet again. Should Americans be concerned? Absolutely, says Gerald Celente, director at the Trends Research Institute. While Bernanke may have taken to the press, Celente says Ben's "jive talk" shouldn't be trusted as he devalues the dollar and distastes the economy.

Fed stays the course on interest rates

A very nice stack

For my Aussie readers:

$1 million Aussie (AUD) worth of gold weighs ~ 22kg in 1kg bar form, or in coins a bit over 21kg, approx. 680 gold kangaroo 1oz 9999 gold coins.

In silver a $1 million weighs 680kg in 1kg bar form or approx 18,200 1oz 999 silver kookaburra coins!

In other words you can put a $1 mil AUD in gold in a briefcase and still pick it up. A $1 mil in silver still requires a Chep pallet and a forklift. The day you can put $1 mil in silver in your briefcase and pick it up easily might be the time to consider taking some profits, but before then keep on stacking.

Putin: Who gave NATO right to kill Gaddafi?

From: RussiaToday | Apr 26, 2011

Who gave coalition forces in Libya the right to eliminate Gaddafi? That's the question Vladimir Putin's been asking, during an official visit to Denmark. The Russian Premier also said NATO's effectively joined one of the warring sides in the conflict. And more responsible action should be taken instead.

Putin: Measure your success by non-fired missiles!

From: RussiaToday | Apr 27, 2011

The Russian Prime Minister says he's alarmed by NATO's approach towards bombing Libya. At a news conference following Russian-Swedish talks, Putin said the coalition is quick to act no matter the cost. Putin says: "It's well-known that I used to serve in the KGB. At that time, the Soviet Union was waging a war in Afghanistan. Many of my friends served in Afghanistan. One of them was the head of the advisors group on the security bodies in Herat. One day, he went on leave, and I asked him, 'Listen Sasha, how's the situation there?' And at that time, our country had a very patriotic spirit. We believed that we were doing a very good thing having this war in Afghanistan. His reply came back unexpectedly: 'You know, without my signature no single missile or bomb attack can be fired.' 'So what?' said I. 'I assess my success and my achievements by the number of orders that I don't sign.' For me, it sounded just shocking. Can you imagine hearing that from a KGB officer at that time? I asked, why? He said, 'Do you know how many peaceful civilians perish because of these missile attacks, no matter what reasons are behind them?' Sometimes I contemplate how easily decisions on using force are made today in international affairs, and it leaves me gobsmacked. And that happens against the background of all the fuss around human rights and humanism which the modern civilized world seemingly practices. Don't you see a significant contradiction here between theory, the words and deeds, the practice of international affairs? And we should do our utmost to eliminate this imbalance.
