Ben, this is what your kids are getting for Christmas, to prepare them to be good servile American sheeple.

We do have to remind folks first that it was George W. Bush who gave us the Department of Fatherland, er I mean Motherland, er I mean Homeland Security. A big part of that useless, over-reaching, and unnecessary bureaucracy of despotism is the TSA, which, in itself, is becoming more monstrous everyday. Although they “missed” the Underwear Bomber, who waved more red flags than the Chinese Olympics, and whom Barney Fife could had nabbed even on a bad day, they are making sure they get to “Play with your junk.”

Even the airline pilots are getting fed up.

Also in recent news, the valiant Blue Shirts protected us from this gal in the name of “Public Safety”, “National Security” and “for the children."

“As the TSA agent was frisking plaintiff, the agent pulled the plaintiff’s blouse completely down, exposing plaintiffs’ breasts to everyone in the area,” the lawsuit said. “As would be expected, plaintiff was extremely embarrassed and humiliated.”

TSA workers continued to laugh and joke about the incident “for an extended period of time,” leaving the woman distraught and needing to be consoled. After the woman re-entered the boarding area, TSA workers continued to humiliate her over the incident.

“One male TSA employee expressed to the plaintiff that he wished he would have been there when she came through the first time and that ‘he would just have to watch the video,’” the suit said.

The incident bears similarities to a 2002 case involving a pregnant woman who had her breasts exposed by TSA agents in public. Her husband was thrown in the airport jail for complaining about the treatment of his wife.

Or the incident in which a single mother traveling with her baby was subjected to a little groping in the name of “National Security”.

Never mind the fact that if anyone “searched” a 15-year old girl on the streets the way TSA does, they would wind up in prison and on the Sex Offender Registry. This is National Security, peasants, so shut up and get back in line. Or else get in that other line, the one leading to the cattle cars.

Civil rights groups contend the more intensive screening violates civil liberties including freedom of religion, the right to privacy and the constitutional protection against unreasonable searches.

"The Transportation Security Administration says airline passengers won't get out of body imaging screening or pat-downs based on their religious beliefs.

"That person is not going to get on an airplane," [TSA Chief ]Pistole said in response to a question from Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev., on whether the TSA would provide exemptions for passengers whose religious beliefs do not allow them to go through a physically revealing body scan or be touched by screeners.

Um, well, unless the religious person in question turns out to be a member of the Religion of Peace. You know, the folks who’ve knocked down more airplanes around the world than the RAF. They get special privileges and a big pass.

"However, Muslim women will not have to face such worries. has reported that Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — which is frequently tied to domestic terror plots — has been guaranteed that TSA officials will only pat down Muslim women in the head and neck area."

The Constitution of these United States does not take precedent over TSA regulations, but Sharia Law does.

Thank God we’ve sacrificed freedom for security. Well, the illusion of security. And a growing police state. Orwell would be proud.

Eliminate the TSA.

Fully restore the rights protected under the second amendment to all citizens... everywhere, including airports and airplanes.

Security still wouldn't be perfect, but it'd be a LOT better than it is now, we'd save a LOT of money, and flying would be as convenient as taking a cab ride.

The TSA is getting a great deal of free publicity out of this. What was that expression again, the one about spelling your name right? :)

This one should appeal to you.

Excessive spending improved Congress at the last election, this will improve the commitment to personal liberty there next time. In 2013, you will have a Goldwater Republican President, a new crop of Reps and Senators that the LP hardliners would have trouble faulting, and leading up to the 14 midterms, big government RINOs will be leaping off tall buildings.

Also, what are these TSA boneheads going to next after some persistent terrorist sneaks something past even these "enhanced" security measures? They'll begin sawing passengers in half or something.

I'm kind of amazed the airlines are even still in business as much as this senseless BS has angered even the sheeple. I can't imagine it does the tourism business much good either, especially in places like Hawaii or Alaska. All the while it has done absolutely NOTHING, ZERO, NADA ZIP to make us any safer.

I flew about two years after 9/11 because I had to for work. At the time, I was wearing the uniform of a Federal agency and traveling on a ticket purchased for me by the same Federal agency. I had to be subjected to the enhanced search because their computer said I FIT THE TERRORIST PROFILE.

While we're all getting treated like we're Charles Manson, they still have all these illegals and assorted misfits with the magic security key running around behind the locked doors because they work at the airport.

Last time I went through Salt Lake, I caught a glimpse behind one of the mysterious locked airport doors. There was a guy working for the caterer. He was carrying an RPG, wearing a T-shirt that said "I H8 Infidels" and was spitting on all the ham sandwiches. Then I was subjected to a cavity search because I dared look behind the magic door.

TSA my ass. I would have called Bruce Willis.

Similar to the link in Jim's post and Bawb's post:

I was going from Baltimore to one of my favorite desert locations. A TSA goon completely ripped my gear apart and went through everything. When I asked him why he replied, "You baggage is full of military items". I held up a copy of my orders and said "Duh". That and I was standing in a long line of hundreds of other deployers.

My oldest was in the Marines Reserves. TSA stole his Kevlar helmet while he was returning from a training exercise. Poor kid had to pay for the "missing item".

I just don't fly for any reason now.

SNL has a great skit on this:

Seriously, I feel sorry for TSA agents. They probably did not sign up for the job thinking they would have to touch people's junk. If they don't do a thorough search, they can be fired. If they don't follow procedures, they can be accused of sexual assault. And Republicans are trying to replace TSA with private screeners, so that the people touching our junk will probably not be getting adequate pay or benefits (but the CEO of the company will be).
