Americans Cower Before the TSA


.
It’s obvious, is it not? The TSA is the perfect symbol for what happens when huge government runs amok. They say that the universe trends toward chaos. Why should government be any different? And so Americans have become acclimated to accept the abuse as the TSA gropes their sexual organs to assure that we are all safe, Safe, SAFE.

Well, OK, our freedom and privacy isn’t so safe, but that’s a small price to pay to know that no crotch or teat bomber is going to blast us from the sky. We believe that, don’t we? We must. Why else would we submit to being felt up by a complete stranger?

Americans have this thing about zero risk tolerance when it comes to air travel and the TSA. So I’ve got a question. How come we aren’t hopping mad that only 1 percent of the 28,000 daily commercial flights have an air marshal aboard? I mean if we’ll let our 6 year old daughters be sexually groped in the name of safety, why do we stand for the virtual guarantee of no armed authority on board the planes we fly? Curious, that.

We accept it because the government mandates that’s the way it is going to be. We accept being groped for the very same reason, when you get down to the truth. Oh, we say things like, they can strip search me if it keeps me safe . . . but that’s just an excuse for not resisting our government betters (what a joke). Go along to get along. Don’t make a scene and besides, there’s that appointment that must be kept in Oshkosh.

It’s sad to see Americans cowering before a government agency like the TSA in the name of being safe. Americans make all kinds of decisions every day that involve risk. There’s risk in most things we do. What about those people who decide to buy a motorcycle? Do they know and accept the risk or do they not think about it? People will make a 100 mile trip to see granny without concern for the travel risk. We just accept that over 40,000 Americans die every year in auto accidents.

One could take that same logic to ask why the government needs to be groping it’s citizens. Why must a 95 year old cancer patient remove her adult diaper while being detained for forty five minutes? How desperate are we to be safe? How desperate are we to comply with our government? Are body cavity searches where we draw the line? Only TSA Chief Joe Pistole knows for sure and even he may at last be having questions. But Mr Pistole apparently has no problem with his TSA hit teams showing up at Bus stations and other public places. Seems a little contrary to the *4th Amendment but perhaps you have noticed the Obama Administration plays it fast and loose with the law.

With 28,000 daily flights, over 2 million Americans are under the security authority of the TSA every day. Think about that. Consider the inconvenience and the cost of the security measures affecting that many people every single day. Now think about the thousands selected daily for pat downs. Is it worth the nightmare? Many people just will not fly any more at all. Others are like me, flying only when there is no other alternative. The airlines are nearly all suffering financially. Is it worth all this to go along because the government claims it makes you safer? How much safer?

Shouldn’t Americans be demanding that little children and the aged be exempt from groping. Hey moms, how come you won’t let your little Wandas walk two streets over to play with her friend, but you stand there compliantly while a stranger with a government uniform puts her hands all over your precious baby? Curious, that.

What about the rest of us? I say we should put a stop to all this groping and invasive security measures. Does it really make us safer? To regain freedom, our privacy, our dignity and our productivity, shouldn’t Americans accept whatever tiny fractional amount of risk might be added if the groping was made illegal?

I must ask a hard question. If one airliner crashes because a crotch bomber succeeds, how does that stack up against all the TSA overreach that is crushing our freedom, killing the airlines and retarding American productivity? It’s our bodies, our freedom and a lot of American jobs at stake. Are we going to let bat crap crazy terrorists and our own government do this to us?

When can we ever answer the question, “is it safe yet?” It’s never safe! It’s called life. The ultimate question is do Americans have the guts to live free?

  1. Could Ben Franklin have been peering 236 years into the future and seeing the TSA?

    They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

  2. Recalling 9/11, this airplane thing was new and frightening, actually using the things as weapons. So a lot of ad hoc arrangements were made. One thing I couldn’t get a handle on was the Dept. of Homeland Security. I thought we had the Dept. of Defense, and the Coast Guard, and the National Guard, and the FBI, et cetera and we already had metal detectors, so I thought all we needed to do was tear down Jamie Gorelick’s ‘wall’ to let agencies share intel, hire and train some profilers, and go overseas and wage war. When GW said ‘terrorists and those who harbor them’, I thought that should define the mission. And when he said we should go about our daily lives and not let the terrorists win by cowering, I thought that was OK, too. The problem with creating another gov’t dept. or agency is that the left will always, always, always take it and run with it.

  3. I think everyone (except the weirdos who like getting groped) is waiting for the next elected non-idiot, non-graft ridden, non-corrupted president and administration to boot the TSA and their slag union to the curb.

    Some TSA perp will end up touching the wrong person and find themselves praying to God they never should have hired on to the touchy-feely patrol. I’d say those results will be rather messy.

    • Should we be organizing Minutemen? I think so. Next elections will not fix what ails us. We are going down and we will have to suffer for decades like the pilgrims on, before we can ever become half of what we were.

      • “A well regulated militia being the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Second Amendment

        Article I Section 8
        To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress.

        Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

      • I don’t like the sound of it, but you’re right, a lot will not be fixed by the next election. There are many people prepping for the worst case scenario. Check ammo sales for verification.

        Already we are seeing multiple wildings in the big blue cities, especially Chicago. Reaping the whirlwind.

        In DC this weekend, mass chaos at Howard University. The N word was flying between blacks, along with fists and metal chairs, 1 dead.

    • Oh, no, they didn’t take it off her, but “the options offered them were to remove the diaper or “she was not going to get on the plane”.

      Texas was threatened with no airlines being alowed to fly in and out if they kicked out TSA.

      • Probing as a form of probing? 🙂

        I suspect they are more surprised at how far we have let them go than we are. Like a teenage boy with a cougar.

        More seriously, I agree with you. This is in some way an attempt to either see how far they can push us and / or an attempt to draw a high magnitude response that can be used to justify some further erosion of our civil liberties.

        • Rogue, I think they are and have been trying to goad us into a response, for the sake of establishing the claim that there is the need for martial law. Then they could shut down just about everything any time they choose, invade what remaining privacy we have, confiscate property (including guns), go to what extremes they desire when it comes to limiting free speech, separate and isolate us from society, remove our children from our custody, etc.

          What’s more, I’d almost bet that a lot of us out here are consciously aware that they are trying to bring this about, which may be why we haven’t gone off the deep end…because we don’t want to give them that opportunity.

  4. Plus there is this uneasy feeling in the air we all feel that things just aren’t right, that it isnt America anymore. Back in the 1950s and even yes 1960s headlines like these of this kind of activity would have been thought to come out of an Ayn Rand book or a “political thriller” or even an episode of Twilight Zone -but lo and behold now they are happening in real time right before our very eyes.Don’t forget gun puchases and applications broke all records during – when?- the 1992 Los Angeles riots. Usually by good liberals too. The LibDem power structure only wants to use minorities as a useful voting bloc to maintain power, but turns viciously on the street crowd when they get on the lawns in Brentwood and Hollywood. And, when the street crowds get the full picture they’ve been played all along by the Dems since 1963 – in LA, in NY, Detroit, Philly,Miami and elsewhere, how hard is it to predict cities will burn and be looted as they were in 1965 -1968? BTW fascinating side note here on why SF, which could have burned from the rioters assembled in it, did not. Check it out.
