I can state without hesitation that I would currently be sitting in jail had this happened to any member of my family. I would not have allowed it, not without a fight. Sometimes, a thing is so repugnant that no law and no authority on Earth is worth standing still for it. This is one of those things.
Where is this leading us?
As more and more people avoid flying, the Airlines will suffer.
What's next...a Bailout?
As we have seen with GovernmentMotors...there are strings attached to any bailout coming from this administration.
I am sure that KingBarry would love to be in control of our air travel.
Every airport that has an air traffic control tower is under the purview of the Federal Government.
To its credit, Texas tried to rebel against the Tyranny of the TSA.
But Obama threatened to shut down the airports in Texas, if they tried to interfere with TSA's invasive procedures.
He can do that...unfortunately.
Shutting down the airports in any state, would severely hurt the citizens and the economy of that state.
KingBarry doesn't care.
He will make an example of any state that threatens his power.
Since when, in America, do we sit back and allow our elders to be stripped of their very dignity in the name of "security"? The question was rhetorical, folks, because we started allowing this about the same time that we put a community organizer in the Oval Office, and allowed him to appoint pathetically unqualified people in key positions of government. I want to live in the America that gave us Freedom and Liberty. Not in the one that promises "hope & change". And I'll do whatever I can to help us get back to where we were.
The power rests in our voices-we must care about the young and the elderly and we MUST speak up about this foolishness that is taking place here. This craziness is putting us the consumer at risk-while they are busy frisking dying American citizens, or innocent children they pass on the potential radical muslim behind us that might be on the flight...
This is unconscionable. Because some Western muslims will be inconvienced as we kuffars try to defend ourselves against the racist genocidal hatred of jihadists, Western muslims demand everyone to be profiled. What better expression of contempt muslims have for their host countries in the West who offer them a life a million times better than they could ever find in a muslim country. At best they display complete indifference to the jihadist menace trying to eradicate us kuffars. And the authoritarian socialist ruling class is only too happy to oblige.
Wow. Jean Weber is my mother. I'm stunned that this made the national stage so fast (happy, very happy, just stunned). We are all outraged that my grandmother had to go through this. I just don't get how this is supposed to help stop terrorism and I don't think anyone has ever been able to explain it in a way that makes any amount of sense.
Just wait until the TSA are unionized, there will be much worse than this, and no stopping them. All this while the Mexicans walk across our borders unscathed, unhindered, armed and with drugs.
I wonder the same thing, especially since the TSA came out to day releasing a statement APPROVING of what the agents did. "We have reviewed the circumstances involving this screening and determined that our officers acted professionally and according to proper procedure" http://bit.ly/l2J1MM
The American People MUST speak up-or they/the government will continue to trample all over us...and while they were busy checking this poor women out they passed on the "terrorist" behind her ( I mean if there might have been one) how incredibly foolish this government is.
I thought Texas was going to fight back, but now it seems the legislature there has wimped out and replaced their anti-groping bill with a meaningless resolution: http://bit.ly/kxCPx5
