TSA: The dangerous stranger

April 28th, 2012

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.

December 24th, 2010

“Fuck you, Fuck all you cocksuckers, you wont change anything. ride the bus, TSA is here to stay there [sic] doing a great job keeping americia [sic] safe.”

The message was clear enough. It’s a typical hate message one gets for saying anything controversial about anything in this Land of the Free. But someone traced the source and found it had come to We Won’t Fly from someone at the Department of Homeland Security:

KPFA Story on ‘We Won’t Fly’ Opt Out Day Protest

November 25th, 2010

I just filed this story on KPFA Radio about the ‘We Won’t Fly’ campaign. The story treats it more fairly than mainstream McMedia that all read from the same AP script and said the event “fizzled” too early in the day for there to have been time to accurately assess it. That reminded me of the story about John Tyner, the man of “don’t touch my junk” fame. Immediately after that story broke, the media was reporting that “8 out of 10” Americans supported the TSA’s actions in the case when clearly there had been insufficient time to have conducted a valid poll. It was an example of media not reporting news but manufacturing it. That’s what we saw yesterday in coverage of Opt Out Day.

It didn’t fizzle. TSA backed off for the day and fewer people were flying due to We Won’t Fly’s efforts. Accolades to those who protested despite the lack of support by others.

Channel 10 covers Opt Out Protest at Sacramento Airport

November 25th, 2010

As most media did around the country, Sacramento’s News 10 focused on the perceived failure of this event rather than the underlying issues. This, of course, is no surprise.
