Heavy-Handed Tactics of The TSA

         
Have Americans finally had their fill of the heavy-handed tactics of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA)? Are parents en route to Disney World fed up with having their three-year olds brought to tears by manhandling TSA employees? Will senior citizens stop consenting to be prodded and poked while seated in a wheelchair from which movement may be quite painful? Are adult air passengers finally ready to declare, "enough is enough?"

TSA has greatly increased the number of full-body scanners at airports across the country, and instituted a program of aggressively hand- searching passengers who decline the full-body x-rays. Whether these indignities finally will prompt the travelling public to rebel, however, remains to be seen.

After all, for every traveler who realizes that a full body scan or physical body search conducted after they already passed a weapons and explosives detection device, adds little if anything to their safety, there are others who shrug that, "if it makes us safer, well, that's the price we have to pay." And for every citizen who understands that the Fourth Amendment prohibits the government from conducting an intrusive search of one's persons and possessions without any suspicion they've done anything wrong, there's another who accedes to such searches, because they "have nothing to hide."

Recent polls indicate an air passenger rebellion is brewing; and none too soon. As a nation, are we ready to reaffirm our heritage and cast off the yoke of fear that has gripped us since September 11, 2011? Do we become once again a nation of laws -- in which the Bill of Rights still has meaning -- or have we succumbed to the federal browbeaters who assert that whatever intrusions they assert are necessary for them to protect us, are permissible? Are we willing to ask the tough questions?

I think the 10th aniversary of 911 should not be a day of rememberence.  It should be a day of protest against all our government has done to disgrace the memories of those who died.

And some of us are asking "Where is the ACLU?" Would they be in the Libs pockets? :-P :-P :-P

In each country, the government agencies are really provoking people beyond endurance.   When it breaks, the FEMAs are waiting in the wings to mop up the supposed ringleaders.

Not a single terrorist has been stopped by airport security, they fail because of spooks type Intelligence or their own stupidity.

Is it any coincidence that a major aim of eco-fuckwittery is to stop the public flying and is this a back-passage way of making flying uncomfortable?

Sheriff said...

No coincidence at all, mate - this is all part of the Agenda 21 big picture, from the eco-fuckwittery to the TSA - it's all part of the NWO plan and it's really easy to see once you can look at it in that way! >:o

Sheriff said...

I'd like to see those bastards being mopped up instead, James! They aren't keeping the US and UK armies out of the way in Afghanistan for nothing! >:o

We have our own equivalent over here called "Liberty", Odie - and they are about as Liberal as you can get - plenty of noise made when the poor MooseLimbs are being "oppressed" but strangely silent at the moment! >:o

Sheriff said...

I totally agree, Trestin, but instead of being a day of remembrance, Obama is going to allow a fucking mosque to be opened at Ground Zero - talk about rubbing our noses in it........ grrrrr! >:o

Sheriff said...

This is horrible and I will not be flying anywhere.
Now they want to do all this crap everywhere else, it's only the beginning.
They should all be horsewhipped for targeting little old ladies, sick people, and harmless women & children.

Sheriff said...

They need horsewhipping and hanging, Bunni, I see now that a visiting ambassador from India was shoved into the glass cage and groped by one of these totalitarian fuckwits! >:o

She has now said that she will not be going back to America - this is only the start of the protests from people they won't be able to ignore! :-P
