TSA: The dangerous stranger

In this article the girl had just seen a movie about “stranger danger” before she got molested at the airport by TSA thugs. So now I have a cool title (or headline) and just need to write the article. When I was a kid, we had the dangerous stranger, but no TSA. It hadn’t been institutionalized yet.


I also enjoyed the fact that TSA has agents helping to boost the drug supply in America. Thanks guys!

TSA screeners charged in LA drug trafficking probe


And in a story becoming increasingly typical in Texas (accolades to Texas for that), The TSA has gotten itself exposed for the power perverts they are by grabbing a legislator’s “junk.” I guess he had to call it junk; he couldn’t say, “He grabbed my dick.”

I would have though, which is why I quit flying. I know I would get into trouble with TSA eventually because, aside from all the funny tricks you could pull, it’s just normal reactions to what they’re doing that would get me arrested. So I just quit dealing with them.


Texas Republican rebukes TSA; Lt. Governor sides with feds

As some of you know, I quit flying and announced the fact on Tom Sullivan’s national radio show. Channel 10 covered the “protest.” There were only three of us at the Sacramento International Airport, and I was not posturing. I’m completely serious.

I’ve already looked into booking passage on ocean freighters as an alternative to flying internationally: http://www.seatravelltd.co.uk/

The following piece from Brasscheck offers that the sexual humiliation TSA routinely inflicts on the public is similar to what Nazis did to Jews as they were being loaded onto trains. Mark G says that’s not true. I can see how that might be exaggerated, but I don’t think it’s surprising that the Nazis would check people for guns, and when drunk men get too close to women, weird things can happen. I’ll solicit a response from Mark G, whose opinions I respect. I kind of like to think the Nasties did it because if they didn’t, that would make TSA more debased than them.

In any case, I disdain the practices of TSA whether or not any of that is true.

The Texas legislature is apparently the only lawmaking body that has even tried to stand up to TSA in some meaningful way. We can only hope that the other wimpy states follow:

Alabama Alaska Arizona Arkansas
California Colorado Connecticut Delaware
Florida Georgia Hawaii Idaho
Illinois Indiana Iowa Kansas
Kentucky Louisiana Maine Maryland
Massachusetts Michigan Minnesota Mississippi
Missouri Montana Nebraska Nevada
New Hampshire New Jersey New Mexico New York
North Carolina North Dakota Ohio Oklahoma
Oregon Pennsylvania Rhode Island South Carolina
South Dakota Tennessee See below Utah
Vermont Virginia Washington West Virginia
Wisconsin Wyoming

Texas Republican Dan Patrick had the brass balls to propose legislation that would make it a crime for TSA agents to sexually molest pasengers. Unfortunately, Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst intervened and saved the molesters from harm.

“TSA screening: no logic, no freedom, just fear, hatred and molestation”

There is seriously something wrong when the government demands its citizens be molested or to undergo x-raying and be viewed naked, in order to travel.

It’s hard for me to believe people are serious when they ask what the big deal is about being viewed naked on these porno scanners. Clearly, if people are generally comfortable being naked in front of complete strangers, it would not be illegal to be naked in almost all public places. And is it that hard to imagine that victims of rape or sexual assault might be extremely uncomfortable with strangers seeing them naked or groping them?
