You're probably thinking the guy had drugs or that he had aquired the money through some nefarious means. But none of that was true. No, he was simply a guy who buys a sells trucks and he was leaving Chicago heading back to California after his latest deal.
TSA ID'd the money in his carry-on bag and he was whisked away to a beautiful windowless room the bowels of the airport where he was accused of having drugs in his bag and his money was ultimately stolen.
It's yet another story of our law enforcement abusing its power to line its pockets.
But I don't think that's nearly as important as the President banning a CNN reporter from an open press event.
You see, Twitter can't hurt you. There are a million ways to get your voice out these days and if Twitter wants to silence you it's simply a matter of switching platforms but when the government starts banning reporters we have a problem.
The government is, by its very nature, force and if we don't have a free press to check that power the people are no longer in charge.
