I just flew "The Friendly Skies" last week (Washington to Florida). The new TSA is more macabre than ever, the paranoia in the security line is approaching the ugliness of the first few months after 9-11 nine years ago. Now it's EVERYTHING out of your pockets, including one's billfold and clad coinage (that REALLY pi**es me off). And removing shoes is so obviously a screw-you measure. A simple x-ray at foot level would be "sufficient" but that would be insufficiently mean-spirited! Gotta diss the passenger as much as possible. And do we even have to go to the obvious discussion about TSA -- Never has caught a single "Terrorist", violates Probable Cause and Illegal Search & Seizure. Now we're doing the TOUCHING thing. Shutting down TSA would be a presidential platform all by itself Here's the headline from ANUNEWS.NET:

I haven't flown since all this crap came about and really dread it. I feel one ought to sue them in advance or work up some other grand strategy for getting around the degradation, but there are only so many hors in the day. Drive to Canada or Mexico and fly from there? Wear a rabbi costume and flash a fake ADL card?
This country is stark raving mad. The more the System stomps people under, the more the sheeple lick its boots. Nobody but nobody likes it but most people would literally rather [see their country] die than contemplate that everything has gone rotten around them.
The TSA rampage is not unexpected. A move under the Obama Democrats to enable full-scale molestation of captive Americans was on the Obama agenda. But what a bonanza for TSA hiring! If you can't afford internet Porn or an expensive subscription to The Playboy Channel, just join TSA! There you can demand total nudity on demand, and get paid and congratulated! And there's no pesky age limit on what constitutes "Child Porn", so naked 13 year-old girls are comin' your way! Now every sex-offender in USofA has a brand-new avocation - Come work for Janet Nappy!
TSA is doing it's best to limit air travel,and it is by design,most Americans are worn down by driving,traffic gridlock,high gas prices,check points,etc.All other forms or travel will be limited also in an effort to keep the public at home,it is much easier to control the sheeple that way,it will be interesting to see how the boycott against the TSA goes on the busiest flying day of the year,11/24,remember how American voters punish politicians by voting them back into office,"will show em"!
<H1 ="mb min entry-title">The highly Neo-con I-love-Israel Washington Times has a stinging anti-TSA editorial today. I never believe a word from the Times in terms of sincerity, but it was still interesting to see this article in print. The TSA assault on America is welcome bad press for the Negro-in-Chief and his Communist cabinet</H1>

The Washington Times 12:33 p.m., Saturday, November 20, 2010</DIV>
<DIV ="story left mb">
<DIV ="column c160 last right ml mb max">In the past few days, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) policies have been probed almost as thoroughly as the elderly men and teenage girls subjected to one of the agency's indecent "enhanced" pat-downs. They've come up short. TSA's top man, John S. Pistole, testified Wednesday that he had no choice but to implement the security measures based on the intelligence he has on potential threats. Not that he is willing to share this information. It's all classified, of course.</DIV>
A more likely explanation is that the Obama administration is engaging in a classic form of bureaucratic backside covering. Should another Islamic extremist board an aircraft while TSA agents are busy grabbing sippy cups from toddlers and confiscating fingernail clippers from Marines, the agency plausibly can claim there was nothing more it could have done. After all, with nude photography sessions and stories of nuns and 3-year-olds being groped, TSA has made it clear it has crossed every line of common decency - even laws governing sexual assault.
That's an oversight that at least one member of Congress seeks to remedy. Rep. Ron Paul, Texas Republican, introduced legislation last week that would strip federal agents of any perceived immunity from prosecution for their actions while handling passengers at the airport. The measure strikes at the heart of the present problem: TSA's arrogance.
Consider the case of Oceanside, Calif., resident John Tyner, who famously refused to be scanned or manhandled with the phrase, "If you touch my junk, I'll have you arrested." TSA field director Michael J. Aguilar decided to get back by announcing at a press conference that he would investigate Mr. Tyner and perhaps impose an $11,000 fine. It's now clear this threat was nothing but unauthorized bullying. Mr. Aguilar's boss stated under congressional questioning that he had no interest in pursuing the matter. "I'm not aware of any instance where someone who's refused screening has been fined," Mr. Pistole said. "It is being reviewed. I don't want to prejudge anything, but I do not anticipate anything coming from that."
TSA's tactics are all about bullying. The agency wants every American to enter a literal position of surrender while being undressed by an X-rated x-ray machine. There is good reason to question whether such devices are effective, let alone safe. The airport backscatter machines can easily detect metal objects on people, but they are quite a bit less effective at detecting chemicals whose atomic makeup is similar to that of the human body. Rational discussion of whether such machines do any good are swept away with the, "It's classified" dodge.
In other words, surrender your judgment - and dignity - to the Department of Homeland Security because Big Sister knows best. One could only imagine what would have happened if the passengers on United Flight 93 had embraced this misguided "government will protect us" mentality. Likewise, it was the passengers on Northwest Airlines Flight 253 who caught underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, not the TSA.
Allowing this rogue agency to demean and diminish the American spirit makes us less safe, not more secure. TSA must be stopped from its exploitation of fliers' fears and doubts for the sake of expanding bureaucratic power. The current security charade weakens the nation.

Well,so much for the public not flying to protest TSA actions,on a 5:00 A.M. news cast in Pittsburgh the airport was packed,and I imagine all U.S. airports were the same,most American citizens deserve what they get!
An article entitled "'They were staring me up and down': Woman claimed TSA security staff singled her out for her breasts"
An article entitled "Mythbusters’ Adam Savage carries 12″ razor blades past TSA body scan."
http://cofcc.org/2010/11/mythbusters...ge-12-razor-bl ades-tsa/Adama Savage passes TSA goon check carry razor blades much bigger than what the 911 hijackers are believed to have used.
Where are the Feminazis?
As usual, the Feminoodles are absent on a heavy-duty national issue that should be prominent in their protest portfolio. But Femintwits are just communist sociopaths hiding behind a buzzword. The national issue is the TSA "security" orgy of assaulting middle-class Americans, sexually and spiritually, at airports, soon to spread to every governmental function under the sun. The Feminutjobs are silent because they LOVE the new police state. It's so gulag! It's so Stasi! It's so ... well, Abzug! America's Feminasties actually would enjoy being in a TSA uniform. There they could play out their not-so-hidden lesbian impulses on nubile teenage female ticketholders. And the highly-paid congress-critter Feminethers like a Babs Boxer or a Babs Mikulski (barf!) are absolutely THRILLED by the burgeoning police-state measures that are bringing down the civil aviation industry. Somewhere, the Reigning Butch Slime of them all, Queen Elizabeth II of the English Jewish New World Order, is smiling. Where are you, Feminabobs?</DIV>
An article entitled "Will Mexicans Be Allowed to Bypass Airport Security?"
http://blog.vdare.com/archives/2010/...-mexicans-be-a llowed-to-bypass-airport-security/Are you disgusted about the manner in which our government manages airport security? Do you believe intrusive security procedures are harassing American citizens while not looking out for the real terrorists who would do us harm?
How about if, simultaneously, 84 million Mexicans were authorized to simply bypass security in American airports? Judicial Watch reports that Janet Napolitano has just signed an agreement to allow it.
The TSA backed off at the Christams travel rush to lull the cattle back to their respective comas,many travelers commented,"see, it really is not that bad",forgetting what happened prior,and what will be the future,denial is a powerful opiate.
An article entitled "Your Tax Dollars In Action"
The so-called Transportation Safety Agency, in addition to preventing not one single hijacking since its inception, appears to be turning into even more of a joke than the usual federal bureaucracy.http://www.whitecivilrights.com/?p=7117Why do they call it zero tolerance? Does that mean some airports tolerate TSA agents stealing some of your stuff?
Remember when the big complaint about airport security used to be that they were unqualified and unhygienic rent-a-cops from some contract security company? Well, doesn’t look like much has changed, except that now in addition to thieves like this character Dovel the TSA attracts perverts who like to grope travelers’ genitals.
If enough Americans just refuse to fly, the Feds can be forced to get rid of the TSA. Just tell your Congressman that you won’t fly again until the TSA is gone.
An article entitled "The TSA and minority revenge against whites"
http://cofcc.org/2012/06/the-tsa-and...gainst-whites/Travelers at the airport can’t help but notice all the white people being harassed by non-white Federal employees. Black are dramatically overrepresented in the TSA. They make up 13% of the general population, but 21% of all TSA employees.
