Say it isn’t so, a liberal who thinks that the rules don’t apply to them.
What a shock, a liberal not listening to some one in authority and thinking that the rules do not apply to them. Such was the case with NBC 30 Rock actor Alec Baldwin aboard an American Airlines plane at LAX. Baldwin was removed from the flight for not listening to the flight attendant. The incident caused the plane to have to return to the gate and delayed the flight for other passengers. More from TMZ regarding the incident.
What a smart Alec.
Hot-head Alec Baldwin was kicked off an American Airlines flight this afternoon in Los Angeles because he was playing a game on his phone apparently past the point when passengers are supposed to have turned off their devices.
On his Twitter account, Baldwin wrote: “Flight attendant on American [Airlines] reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving.”
Fellow passengers stuck on the runway at Los Angeles International Airport quickly tweeted about the incident moments after it took place.
“On an AA flight at LAX. Alec Baldwin removed from the plane. We had to go back to the gate. Terrible that everyone had to wait.”
Baldwin was aboard AA Flight 4, which was delayed an hour, when the “30 Rock” star was booted for not listening to the flight attendant.
So here we have an example of some one behaving badly and not following the rules, yet Baldwin tweeted as if he was the victim.Oh and wait, he attacked women as well. I guess he must have had a flashback of leaving a message for his daughter calling her a little pig. What would have happened if Baldwin had acted so rudely to TSA agents before getting on the plane?
An American Airlines spokesman declined comment, saying the company does not comment on “something that might or might not have happened” due to customers’ privacy concerns.
Meanwhile, Baldwin continued his criticism of the airline on Twitter.
He vowed never to fly American Airlines again.
“#theresalwaysunited,” Baldwin tweeted. “Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950?s find jobs as flight attendants.”
Nice. How selfish could one be, but then again, He’s Alec Baldwin and he’s special.

UPDATE I: American Airlines fires back on Facebook of what took place to have Baldwin tossed off plane.
Since an extremely vocal customer has publicly identified himself as being removed from an American Airlines flight on Tuesday, Dec. 6, we have elected to provide the actual facts of the matter as well as the FAA regulations which American, and all airlines, must enforce. Cell phones and electronic devices are allowed to be used while the aircraft is at the gate and the door is open for boarding. When the door is closed for departure and the seat belt light is turned on, all cell phones and electronic devices must be turned off for taxi-out and take-off. This passenger declined to turn off his cell phone when asked to do so at the appropriate time. The passenger ultimately stood up (with the seat belt light still on for departure) and took his phone into the plane’s lavatory. He slammed the lavatory door so hard, the cockpit crew heard it and became alarmed, even with the cockpit door closed and locked. They immediately contacted the cabin crew to check on the situation. The passenger was extremely rude to the crew, calling them inappropriate names and using offensive language. Given the facts above, the passenger was removed from the flight and denied boarding.
Way to Go TSA … Stun Gun Found Abord JetBlue Plane that Landed at New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport from Boston’s Logan Airport
Things that make you go, hmm.
The TSA has egg on their face as a stun gun was found aboard a JetBlue plane at New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport. The weapon was found after the plane had landed in Newark, flight 1179 that departed from Boston’s Logan International Airport.
The crew discovered what they deemed to be a suspicious object in a seatback pocket while cleaning the plane. So how did the TSA miss this during the screening process? I guess they were too busy fondling little boys and girls and making elderly grandma’s with cancer remove their diapers in the name of security.
Authorities are trying to determine how a stun gun got aboard a JetBlue plane that landed at New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport.
The crew was cleaning up after the 10:20 p.m. flight arrived from Boston on Friday and found the stun gun tucked into the back of a seat.
Port Authority spokesman Steve Coleman tells The Star-Ledger of Newark it’s not clear who the weapon belonged to or how it got on the plane. Coleman says there’s no indication the weapon had been fired.
Port Authority police turned the stun gun over to the Transportation Security Administration. Why, to provide an example to the TSA of what they should actually be screening for?

Who should be frisking who? Well, well, well, isn’t this rather ironic.
A TSA agent, Nelson Santiago, has been busted for for stealing $50,000 worth of electronics from the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Get this, he found found with an iPad in his pants. I guess it is the TSA agents who need to be groped and padded down, not the airport passenger.
While most Transportation Security Administration employees are busy groping people or taking naked pictures of them, the cops say one of those employees was putting fliers’ electronics down his pants.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office says 30-year-old Nelson Santiago stole around $50,000 worth of electronics over the past six months from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport’s Terminal 1.
Santiago — a TSA officer since 2009 — was caught earlier this week by a Continental Airlines employee taking an iPad out of someone’s luggage and stuffing it into his pants, the cops say.
Damn, was beat to the punch by both Vodka Pundit and The Other McCain … “Is that an iPad in your pants, or are you just glad to frisk me. Ha, Ha, Ha.
More from the TSA … Woman Freaks Out at Sky Harbor International in Phoenix, AZ after being Molested by TSA Agent
More TSA pa tdowns …
So this is what TSA pat downs have come to? Check out the video below when a woman completely freaks out after being molested by a TSA agent over Memorial Day weekend. The incident occurred at Sky Harbor International in Phoenix, AZ. The video is disturbing.
Read more ion the story HERE:
Video of an incident recorded over the memorial weekend at Sky Harbor International in Phoenix, AZ, documents how the TSA deal with people who are traumatized by grossly invasive enhanced pat downs.
After a woman refused to go through a full body scanner she was pulled aside and made to undergo the pat down procedure. When the TSA agent touched the woman’s breasts, she broke down into tears and screamed for a police officer.
As stated by the Gateway Pundit, a special shout out to Barack Obama and the liberal LEFT for turning American airports into a police state with woman and children being molested so that the liberals can feel good about themselves for not profiling. How can a policy be so wrong where is causes this type of reaction? Or allows 6 year old girls to be touched in this manner?
Unbelievable, this is how the TSA treat injured US military vets? A note to TSA agents, military veterans are heroes, you crotch grabbing ingrates are zeros. Another assault of Americans by the “Crotch Police”.
On this Memorial Day weekend, have the TSA no shame, or no clue? The story below of how injured US military veterans were treated by the TSA is beyond shameful. It is treating America’s heroes at its worst. TSA agents responded in a “guilty until proven innocent” when two inured military vets set off metal detectors because of the shrapnel. They were accusatory asked by the TSA what they were hiding in their face and legs, but before they could answer, the TSA agent grabbed him, without notice, right in the crotch area as if trying to find something hidden.
Two injured US military veterans traveling to a ceremony to honor the lives of fallen friends who gave their lives to protect the rights enshrined in the Constitution were harassed by TSA thugs, with one of them having his crotch grabbed, according to David Bellow, an Army National Guardsman and a State Republican Executive Committeeman.
“One of the wounded warriors, a friend of mine who personally told me what happened, has bullet fragments in his leg. The other wounded warrior has shrapnel in his face,” wrote Bellow on the Texas GOP Vote website
The Texas House had previously passed a law that would forbid TSA agents from inappropriately touching men, women and children. However, when the vote came to the Texas Senate, the US federal government threatened a “no fly zone” over Texas if they dared pass the law.
TSA Says they Will Keep Feeling Up Passengers, Uses Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution as Excuse
More poor PR from the TSA …
The TSA says that it will continue to fondle and inappropriately touch in what ever way they deem necessary in Texas. This after the Texas State House passes a bill last week that would make it a criminal offense for public servants to inappropriately touch travelers during airport security pat-downs. However, the TSA is saying that Texas has no right to pass a law that tells the federal government what to do and is citing the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution.
What’s our take on the Texas House of Representatives voting to ban the current TSA pat-down? Well, the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution (Article. VI. Clause 2) prevents states from regulating the federal government.
We wish we lived in a world where you could just walk on a plane with no security screening, but that just isn’t the case unfortunately. Aviation security agencies worldwide have been using pat-downs long before TSA was created to prevent dangerous items from getting onto airplanes. The pat-down is a highly effective tool to resolve certain alarms and keep these dangerous items off of planes that could cause catastrophic damage.
They are actually worng on two accounts. One, how many terrorist have TSA agents nabbed while frisking them during the pat downs? The answer would be none.
Two, as stated by the PJ Tatler, The supremacy clause says nothing of the sort. Here’s the full text:
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.
How soon will it be before TSA agents are being arrested by Texas State police? Hey TSA, are you feeling lucky?
Inappropriate pat downs by TSA agents made a criminal offense by the Texas House. What will the TSA do now when they try an inappropriately touch an individual in an airport pat down. This could get interesting. Imagine a TSA agent being arrested in an airport? One thing is for certain, cell phone cameras and video will be running in all Texas airports for proof. The TSA anti-groping law would mean that not just children cannot be inappropriately touched, but also adults.
This will now be considered a criminal offense
The Texas House passed a bill that would make it a criminal offense for public servants to inappropriately touch travelers during airport security pat-downs.
Approved late Thursday night, the measure makes it illegal for anyone conducting searches to touch “the anus, sexual organ, buttocks, or breast of another person” including through clothing.
It also prohibits searches “that would be offensive to a reasonable person.”
We had stated in the past that the bill was gaining momentum … it has now passed.
For every action, there is a reaction … and the TSA pat downs are about to get a backlash of reaction.
A bill in the Texas legislature is gaining momentum that would make it a felony for TSA agents to intentionally grope and touch an individuals private areas without probably cause. The TSA has recently come under fire for a multitude of bad PR as they have had videos of the groping of old and young alike. What a novel concept, to have probably cause in order to perform a search, isn’t that what the 4th Amendment was supposed to address?
Does anyone not think that the above pat down of a 6 year old girl was not a felony?
The bill would make it illegal for a security officer to intentionally touch someone’s private areas — even atop clothing — unless they have probable cause to believe the person is carrying something illegal.
Bill sponsor State Rep. David Simpson says the searches are removing people’s dignity.
Recently, a former Miss USA claimed she was groped during a pat-down at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. If this bill passes into law, such a groping would be considered a felony. State Rep. David Simpson, R-Longview, who sponsored the bill made the following comment:
State Rep. David Simpson, R-Longview, who sponsored the bill, said Friday that the invasive pat-down searches at airports nationwide are a violation of the Fourth Amendment, which prohibits unreasonable searches. Last fall the Transportation Security Administration implemented a new pat-down procedure that includes a security worker running a hand up the inside of passengers’ legs and along the cheek of the buttocks, as well as making direct contact with the groin area.
“We’re taking away people’s dignity and freedom,” said Simpson.
Didn’t Obama’s Transportation Secretary say that they “would not sleep” until this problem was solved? I am guess ing that Ray Lahood has had some zzz’s since Wenesday.
Another day, or should we say night, and another air traffic controller falls asleep … Why am I getting the feeling that the band Queen needs to do a remake of their 1980′s song and change it to “Another One Falls Asleep”.
Steve sits warily at his seat,
With his head slumped way down low
Ain’t no sound but the sound of his feet,
Radar dispalys ready to go
Are you ready, Are you ready for this
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat
Out of the tower the snoring rip
To the sound of the beat
Another one falls asleep
Another one falls asleep
And another one naps, and another one naps
Another one falls asleep
Hey, I’m gonna fall asleep on the job too
Another one falls alseep.
Yet another air traffic controller has fallen asleep, this time it’s Moonlight over Miami. The Federal Aviation Administration has stated that it has happened again, an air traffic controller at a radar facility in Miami that handles high altitude air traffic fell asleep while on duty early Saturday morning. Add this one to the one earlier this week in Reno, NV and the numerous others reported before that.
It appears that finally the FAA will make changes in the scheduling of the controllers. FAA chief Randy Babbitt stated that changes will be made to work schedule for controllers that have been identified as most likely to cause fatigue. It’s about time. We had reported earlier this week that just adding air traffic controllers to an overnight shift was not the answer. It would not solve the root cause problem and just be yet another wasteful and ineffective solution by the government.
The FAA says 12 other controllers and two managers were working at the time.
The sleeping controller has been suspended.
FAA chief Randy Babbitt says changes will be made to work schedule that have been identified as most likely to cause fatigue within 72 hours.
It’s Ronald Reagan’s Fault that Air Traffic Controllers are Sleeping on the Job According to Joy Behar
More pearls of wisdom from the LEFTIES on The View … This time it was not George W. Bush’s fault.
BLOG WARNING:YOU ARE ABOUT TO LOOK INTO THE MIND OF A MOONBAT LIBERAL, DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK
So who is to blame for the air traffic controllers falling asleep? It has happened all too often lately and the most recent incident of an air traffic controller deciding to nod off instead of doing their job happened in Reno, NV. So who is to blame, the air traffic controller, the scheduling of shifts, management, etc? Yesterday, Hank Krakowski, the Federal Aviation Administration’s Air Traffic Organization resigned. But, according to Joy Behar of the view, he is not to blame.
Believe it or not, Joy Behar blamed former President Ronald Reagan firing the air traffic controllers in 1981 for these folks not being able to stay awake in 2011. Welcome to the mind of liberals and their thought process.

JOY BEHAR: Reagan- Ronald Reagan.
WHOOPI GOLDBERG: It sort of started with the- Ronald Reagan saying, you know, you guys asking for too much money. He fired everybody. He cleaned them all out.
BEHAR: He busted the union, the air controllers’ union. And they probably would have been strict about having two people there. The main thing about the unions is they want more people to work.
Thankfully Hasselbeck was there to remind the Libs that there was just a bit of time between Reagan and nap time by air traffic controllers. Although, does any one really think that unions would have prevented such acts? As stated by Hot Air, after all we know that unions are enforcing rigorous performance standards among their members and disciplining them. Sure they are.
