One cash prize winner of $10,000

“You are also reminded that any ‘inappropriate’ remarks or jokes concerning security may result in your arrest.” – TSA public announcement at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport.
The Transportation Security Administration and the National Security Agency are moving quickly to kill free speech in America.
These agencies want to silence any criticism aimed at them while they continue to violate our rights with impunity, yet criticism of our own government is the most protected freedom of expression by far.
They don’t like that.
Earlier this year, the NSA began shutting down t-shirt vendors under the guise of “copyright infringement” because the vendors dared to sell shirts denouncing the agency.
The NSA also engages in the ultimate suppression of free speech by recording all of your electronic communications.
You’ll no longer feel secure speaking openly because someone sinister is listening.
You won’t want to talk as much to your friends and family or say what you want to say on the phone, through e-mail or instant messaging. You may even be more careful with your on-line footprint to keep from getting ensnared in the NSA’s domestic dragnet.
The NSA is not only assaulting the Fourth Amendment but the First Amendment as well.
Meanwhile, the Transportation Security Administration is ensuring that airports across America are zones of total tyranny and Orwellian control.
You can now be arrested for just complaining or making jokes at the airport. If you dare tell a TSA agent “please don’t touch my privates” or “this line is too slow,” you can be arrested because you are simply a slave to the TSA.
Its menacing agents are already pulling passengers off of planes prior to flight because they dared to speak up about their treatment and service.
At the Phoenix airport, our very own film crew witnessed the TSA arrest a sandwich vendor for merely telling them that the agency was sweeping a plane, perhaps due to a bomb threat. He wasn’t arrested for a bomb threat; he was arrested because he said that someone else may have made a bomb threat!
The TSA is simply using color of law to make you believe free speech is a crime.
The agency tries to justify its suppression through the threat of al-Qaeda, a terrorist group our government openly supplies with arms, but the true intent of the TSA is to prepare the public for the next phase in America: complete martial law.
The airport screening process is conditioning the American people for checkpoints under paramilitary control.
With an imperious hatred for the Bill of Rights, both the NSA and the TSA are moving quickly to destroy our republic and our country. It is time for you to reassert your right to free speech and our new contest will allow you to do just that.
