Repeat After Me: None of Your Business. Am I Free To Go?

My love of the TSA and the mouth-breathing pickpockets and gropers is widely known.images

So it should come to you as no surprise this guy — also a Reason contributor –  is my new man crush for how he handled overbearing Customs and Border Protection agents.

“Why were you in China?” asked the passport control officer, a woman with the appearance and disposition of a prison matron.

“None of your business,” I said.

Her eyes widened in disbelief.

“Excuse me?” she asked.

“I’m not going to be interrogated as a pre-condition of re-entering my own country,” I said.

This did not go over well. She asked a series of questions, such as how long I had been in China, whether I was there on personal business or commercial business, etc. I stood silently.

Read his whole encounter here.

    Well, well Mr. Garrison…standing up for people against TSA or…is it China? Make a decision. We all know China is out to get us; they caused he 2004 east coast blackout by hacking our power grid as nobody wants to admit. That’s why we need x-ray machines like in Total Recall with Arnold Schwarzenegger, except with flesh. Look, if you don’t like it, then don’t go to China. I’m sure they can all fill you in about the current issues of the day over there, like Nothing Happened At Tienanmen Square Day.
