A Thousand Words

 

 

This is what we've come to. I'm thinking that at some point in the future signs like this will end up in museums, allowing future generations to look back at us with wonder and pity.

    Crap like this really take the fun out of travelling -.-
    As Mr Franklin once said: "Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither."

    YOUR SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY!

    or

    TURNING AMERICANS INTO A NATION OF COWERING JELLIES IS OUR PRIORITY

    If you outlaw snowglobes, only outlaws will own snowglobes.

    wow !

    The American-style national security state is out of control with their War Against Civilians. America hates people, it seems -- even their own considering that 1 in 33 has been criminalized by their state as police are militarized and freedoms stripped.

    This makes me sad ):

    When I bought a snowglobe in Germany, it made it's way back. Do they have different rules? Idk..
  • James Glave 5y

    Don't y'all remember "The Rock" with Nicholas Cage? Those glass balls weren't full of plastic flakes and water, people!
  • Geoff Glave 5y

    I guarantee you wouldn't see an asinine sign like this at Ben Gurion.

    this stirs so many emotions - my first response is that I found it hilariously funny. then it made me mad. after reading your wonderful manifesto (I agree wholeheartedly) I feel sad about our acquiescence and kinda hopeless that things will ever get back to normal. now I'm frustrated.

    This is normal. It's just that you are just noticing.

    well spotted. I enjoy reading your comments about security as well.

    Now, what if we reverse the initials "TSA" so that they read "AST"? Yes, here in Alaska in another, but related context it stands for "Alaska State Troopers".

    But I shall think of it as the TSA's truer mirror image:

    Absurd
    Security
    Theater

    Well, we're at war with Christmas, I hear.
  • silverfang77 4y

    What harm could snow globes possibly cause?
  • shendot 4y

    they're banned because one day someone will take one upside an assaulting thugs' head
  • nosae94305 4y

    But I can bring my 2 liter bottle of contact lens solution on, no worries? Or a gallon of baby formula, even though I have no baby?

    Oh man! Now how am I going to bring my snow globe souvenirs from Europe >_<
