Scan, Grope, Or Perhaps A Fine


Air travel in the United States is officially broken.
Now one cannot travel by air without being subjected to x-ray radiation, or being groped by a TSA agent.
Yes, you must virtually strip naked or submit to an "enhanced pat down" that touches your breasts and genitals.
It appears that the extra added attraction of a huge fine for non-compliance is now in the offing, unless that is just another lie the TSA agents are telling people just to get them to comply.


This young lady - Meg - was even hand-cuffed to a chair.




Amendment 4 - Search and Seizure. Ratified 12/15/1791.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.


So where is the probable cause? Did Meg look like a terrorist? Americans who don't fit any type of terrorist profile such as mothers traveling with children, disabled and elderly passengers, and even airline pilots and staff are being patted down, groped and detained. This is complete lunacy.

Bottomline, we need to follow the money on this one ... GE and other companies get to sell more X-ray equipment to airports in 2010 and beyond - we lose more rights and the government controls more people as a result of fear. Fear has an economy - and that translates into lots of money for some of these companies that are working closely with Homeland Security and the Obama Administration.
Fear also allows government to control and manipulate the public. That is precisely what Homeland Security and the TSA are doing.

Assaulting our rights like this is just a travesty.

The public DOES have a choice.
Perhaps it is time for people to avoid the airport all together and drive or take a bus or a train.
Maybe we ought to start hiring private individuals to fly us to places.
And if you insist on flying - prepare yourself to be scanned (and your pictures ARE stored) and/or sexually assaulted.

Here is a list of airports using these body scanners.

The TSA are the terrorists to law-abiding Americans.

I have a slightly different take on this on my site.
