Good Enough for thee, but not for me

We’ve all heard the horror stories about the grope-a-thons at the airports. I wrote about them here. Now, we find out, that according to this article some government officials will not be subject to the screenings at all.

Of course, most government officials worth their salt will fly on the government’s own jet fleet, but even if they are subjected to flying commercial, they’ll be exempt. In other words, TSA security hassles are just fine for the rest of us, but for the government’s elite, they are unacceptable.

While calling Obama a Stalinist or a true “socialist” may still be over the top, is there any question that American society is starting to look like the Soviet Union where a small ruling class controls society and the rest of us just do what we’re told?
