The TSA is a good example of excessive government groping!

Mark Levin writes in his book "Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America" writes:
"The LAW has been used to destroy its own objective. It has been applied to annihilating the justice that it was supposed to maintain; to limiting and destroying rights which its real appeal was to respect.
The LAW has placed the collective force at the disposal of the unscrupulous who wish, without risk, to exploit the person, liberty, and property of others. It has converted PLUNDER into a right, in order to protect plunder. And it has converted lawful defense into a crime, in order to punish lawful defense."
In 1970, the Code of Federal Regulations had 54,000 pages. Today it runs to 165,000 pages and takes 27 feet of shelf space when printed and bound.
One new federal agency which has been empowered by Congress to make us all possible terrorist suspects is the TSA. This agency has complete control over you once you decide to board a flight. If you've NEVER felt like a criminal, just wait, the TSA can change all that.

I remember my own outrage at the Logan Airport TSA (Boston) when my son was in Army uniform boarding a flight back to Ft. Benning, GA. The TSA agent basically strip-searched Josh, forcing him to remove his shoes. Here was my son defending the freedom of this agent who was treating him like he was a suspected terrorist.

I voted for George W. Bush but many things that he did after 9-11 were stupid and only served to expand government while limiting our liberty and freedom. The TSA is a good example of an agency that has complete control over you as a person the minute you want to board a flight.

In order to get on an airplane in America today, you either have to allow TSA agents to stare at a movie-quality image of your exposed body or you have to allow TSA agents to grope your entire body including your most private areas. The truth is that any nation that treats its citizens like dehumanized cattle does not deserve to be called a "free nation" anymore.  Under the guise of protecting our liberties and freedoms from terrorism, we are being told that we have to give up all of our liberties and freedoms.

Here are some examples of TSA "over-reach" or "over-feel":
  • A 61-year old bladder cancer survivor was left humiliated, crying and soaking in his own urine after his "enhanced pat down."
  • A flight attendant named Megan describes what she went through at the hands of the TSA, "The agent went up my right leg first and then met my vagina with full force...the same on the other leg with the same result. She then used both of her hands to feel my breasts and squeezing them. At this point, I was in shock."
  • ABC News producer Carolyn Durand claims that a TSA agent actually reached inside her underwear and felt her way around.
  • Flight attendant Cathy Bossi was shocked when she had to actually show her prosthetic breast to a TSA agent. "She put her full hand on my breast and said, 'What is this?'...And I said, 'It's my prothesis because I've had breast cancer.' And she said, 'Well, you'll need to show me that.'"
  • A lawsuit filed on behalf of a female college student from Amarillo, Texas claims that a TSA agent actually exposed her breasts to the public: "As the TSA agent was frisking the plaintiff, the agent pulled the plaintiff's blouse completely down, exposing plaintiffs' breasts to everyone in the area."
  • Meg McClain never thought the infamous TSA abuse would happen to her. This very attractive, twenty-something female, was singled out by the TSA for a little “fun” because she is cute and the Tampa chapter of voyeuristic TSA pot-bellied perverts were bored. However, the TSA got more than they bargained for when she would not play ball and subsequently refused to submit to second degree sexual assault at the “hands” of the TSA. The TSA officials subsequently handcuffed her to a chair and spent the next 30 minutes berating her before one agent tore her boarding pass in half in a fit of rage in response the McClain’s opposition to being sexually molested. 
  • The abuse of the TSA knows no bounds. For example, they like feeling up children, handicapped children. A toddler in a wheelchair is stopped by the TSA at ORD (O’Hare Airport in Chicago) and forced to into a sequestered area. On his way to a family vacation in Disney, this 3 year old boy is in a body cast for a broken leg. Watch as the TSA employee gleefully puts his hands on this child, in front of his father, and amazingly, the father capitulates. The following was filmed by a horrified bystander.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is a cookie cutter version of the East German Stasi and because of the pot bellied perverts who work at the who expose the flying public to degradation, extreme violations of our bodies and lethal doses of radiation. All of this is being done in the name of keeping us safe.  No other country in the world subjects its air travelers to the combination of highly invasive screening procedures that Americans are being forced to endure. Thank-you George W. Bush. What a legacy!! I'm sure you must be proud.
