Jesse Ventura Loses Patriotism, Threatens Mexican Citizenship After Lawsuit Is Thrown Out - November 8th 2011, 02:28 AM

Former Minnesota governor and professional wrestler, Jesse Ventura, said he had lost his patriotism on Friday after a lawsuit he filed against the federal government was dismissed from a district court in St. Paul, MN.
In January, Ventura sued the TSA and Department of Homeland Security, claiming that airport scans and pat-downs amounted to unreasonable search and seizure. Ventura filed the suit after he was subjected to what he felt was an excessively invasive search, when his titanium hip implant set off an airport metal detector last year. He said he hasn’t flown since and refuses to fly commercially ever again.
On Thursday, a district court judge dismissed his suit, ruling that it should have been filed in a Circuit Court of Appeals.
Then on Friday, Ventura stood outside the federal courthouse in St. Paul with a crew from his television show ‘Conspiracy Theory‘ and said he wanted to make his case before a jury, not a panel of judges. He even joked that he might run for president of the “Fascist States of America” in order to change the policy and what he considers to be a broken court system.
The former Navy SEAL then vowed to apply for dual citizenship in Mexico so he could spend more time living there instead of his native land.
“I will never stand for the national anthem again,” he said to his audience, referring to his lost patriotism. “I will turn my back and I will raise a fist.”
Ventura hasn’t decided if he’ll continue pressing the suit.

Wow. I think he went a little overboard with the whole refusing to stand for the national anthem etc. I have to agree with him that the court system is screwed up. But I believe he took it to far.
