He fought the law — and won

A victory of sorts for liberty. Steve Bierfeldt of the Campaign for Liberty writes that the TSA has changed its rules after an incident where he was detained by TSA “agents.”

“We often forget that the power wielded by government exists only because there are those willing to carry out its orders,” Steve writes. “The ‘Government’ is not an Artificial Intelligence that exists in a science fiction movie.”

“Rather it comprises real people who have the choice to either follow or refuse an order.

“A law passed by Congress, signed by the President, and upheld by the courts will never be carried out or enforced unless there are men with badges and with guns willing to comply.”

If we only had more COs in the Federal government.

Listen to the audio recording of the caper. In my humble opinion, all the TSA employees recorded ought to be fired.
