I was talking to my brother last night when it hit me - what Jim DeMint really wants to do is hire illegal immigrants to work at TSA.
There is no other explanation. As a self proclaimed patriot and proud teabagger, DeMint doesn't want government telling people what to do. He says he believes in the Constitution, and the inalienable freedoms it confers on America's citizens to do what the hell they want to do while wearing a firearm on their side.
Which, if my logic doesn't fail me here, means that if the citizenry who happen to work at the TSA want to unionize, it would fall under the all of a sudden pesky little "inalienable freedoms" section. In other words, as AMERICANS, they have the right to do what they want, including the right to organize themselves.
You don't really have to go to law school to see that.
I don't really give a damn about the intent of the Framers of the Constitution, especially since they basically hooked up everybody but the brown skinned folks from Africa who were doing all the work. Frankly, even after some people with good sense amended it down the road to correct the gross inequities against brown skin and the female sex, I was still less than ecstatic about it.
But since we need something to keep the undisciplined among us from unholstering that firearm from their side and plugging people in the streets when they feel like it, something to keep cats like Jim DeMint from rounding up us brown skinned folks and making us work at TSA for free, like we did in the old days, I can work with it.
Back to Mr. DeMint.
The only group of people you can hire and treat with impunity in this country, Senator DeMint, are illegal aliens, which is why they are so popular with the kind of businessmen who want to keep all the money in their pockets. It would be a bit of a strain, since everybody in uniform might not know much English, but I can guarantee you it would be the last group in the world who would consider organizing.
I can't think of anything more un-American than a senator who wants to reduce or infringe on the rights of his fellow American citizens - especially those tasked with helping to keep our airways safe from terror.
