Yeah this was my immediate thought. I had this model in green with the Yosemite logo for ages, and wound up sacrificing it to the TSA gods.
That's how I lost my first one. tbf, it wasn't that far after 9/11, and everyone was on edge. I tried to explain that I'd had it since I was a kid, that it was a gift from my childhood, etc... but the TSA lady was not feeling sentimental that day.

What is it about us liberals and progressives that just cannot help ourselves with the constant friendly fire. All the time. Who needs enemies when you can have people who share the same values as you, aspire to the same ideals, turn around and shit on you with copious doses of cynicism, dishing out generous portions of skeptical quips about your intentions. I honestly don’t f get it. You see that stuff in primaries, with progressive dick measuring contests and people doing a better job at destroying their own nominee than the other side, and you see it here again with some people enjoying target-shooting those who actually stand up for a cause they share. No wonder we cannot win an election against an absolute brain-dead bigot when we constantly shit on people we should be locking arms with, and spend our time questioning motives and true wokeness level, rather than focusing on defeating bigotry, racism and inequalities. Turn your guns around and pick better targets, if you really want to achieve something.

Well said, that's why I became an independent and voted for Gary Johnson last election. Both Republicans and Democrats are running around with their heads in their asses.

Cool, but don't come crying to us when you are detained and taken to a black ops site in the Middle East. Just sayin'.
I remember losing a brand new big bottle of Davine's.
I was soooo pissed. I told the TSA person, at least take it home and use it.

I used to smuggle home entire legs of jamon iberico and big wheels of Manchego from Spain. The stores were completely in on this and would triple vacuum seal them for you if you asked. We'd have massive cookouts with gigantic Paellas and grilled sausages and then copious amounts of flan.

That is next level stuff. And the food just tastes twice as good, because...

Haha I didn't know about that. To be honest I voted for Gary Johnson without knowing any of his policies because I was sick of all the shit going on with the 2 main parties.

The idea that the two main parties are basically the same doesn’t seem believable if you’re paying attention
It tracks if you're still of the outdated viewpoint that both parties are equally corrupt and depraved.

I wasn't literally saying the 2 parties were the same. Trump is a racist and a shitty person, he should have been easy to beat if a decent candidate was put out. You can blame whatever you want for Hillary losing the 2016 election, but the fact was the Democrats screwed Bernie over (even though he wasn't really a Democrat) and gave Hillary the questions before the debates which I felt was a big reason she lost.

I just couldn't vote for her and this is coming from a lifelong Democrat who voted for Obama twice. The same thing is happening with the 2020 candidates. Are you kidding me with Biden? I'd argue he's racist too (you see his interview with Charlemagne) or a complete senile idiot. He has claimed he's going to fight racism but what has he done in his 40 year political career? Nothing was done until Obama came along. Biden's a lifelong politician who hasn't done shit besides being Obama's VP.

And I hate the Republicans. A lot of people assume you're one now if you say bad things about Democrats.
