It seems some people in our government have never heard of "Due Process".
It's in that God damn piece of paper that is our fucking constitution.
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

There is no apparent rhyme or reason why anyone gets on this list, shit, they have little kids on it.
The real bitch is, you don't know yer on the fucker until you actually try to get on a fucking air plane to go somewhere!
They say, well, we have a website you can go to...
What they don't tell ya is that you never get anywhere using it, kinda like a dog chasing his tail.
People have no way to find out how they got on the list in the first fucking place and no way to confront their accusers or argue their case.
That is unconstitutional and this No Fly List stinks to high heaven of Tyranny and Police State tactics in the first place.
I hope the ACLU wins this case but I can already tell you it is a forgone conclusion the Government will stomp their little feets and cry National Security, you fucking watch.
