Government sanctioned sexual molestation has gone too far. They are illegal, but they could put the 'thrill' back in flying!
The American public should show their displeasure by refusing body scans and physical molestation by Transportation Security Administration.
Such searches will continue only as long as the public refuses. Holiday flyers have a perfect opportunity to refuse - would could draw attention as it gums up the national transportation network.
This continued and gradual theft of individual rights is one reason I don't fly anymore. I worked for an airline. I loved flying in the old days. Frequently I'd get off work at 10 or 1 1 p.m. at Los Angeles International, board a plane and fly to Seattle or Portsmouth overnight - getting great night's sleep.
On the return trip to LA, I be awakened and served a filet migon steak and champagne breakfast, offboard and go home for rest of the morning. Travel was fast and easy. I designed a system to move bags from airliner to baggage area as quickly as 30 seconds after opening the hatch door.
Now, that freedom and convenience has been replaced by bureaucrat whackjobs applying increasing frustrating and ineffective rules and regulations.
PROFILE - that's the solution. 60 YO Iowa grannies ain't a threat. Mormon infants in diapers ain't a threat. If you can't look at a couple and tell whether they are likely to make homicide bombers out of their babies, then the bureaucrats should be loose on the public.
But more than anything else? The molestations and scans are unconstitutional:
The 4th Amendment of the Constitution states:
Security from Unwarrantable Search and Seizure.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. U.S. Constitution U.S. Con. 4th Amd. (1791).
"The probable-cause standard is a "nontechnical conception that deals with the factual and practical considerations of everyday life on which reasonable and prudent men, not legal technicians, act." Maryland v. Pringle, 540 U.S. 366, 370 (2003) (internal quotation marks omitted).
"...absent specific facts... insufficient to establish probable cause . . . . Maryland v. Pringle, 540 U.S. 366, 366 (2003)."
Scheduled airline passenger, John Tyner, 30, was to fly out of San Diego this past weekend when a TSA Queer accosted him and wanted to fondle his genitals to make sure he wasn't concealing a weapon of mass destruction. didn't object, but told the TSA Queer he would bring criminal charges 'if you touch my junk.'
Now Tyner has been charged with disrupting a TSA Queer trying to get his jollies by fondling his cojones.
Hey, we have a solution: You touch mine, I get to touch yours. If you find an agent who doesn't turn your stomach, grab 'em and give 'em a big ole sloppy lip locking kiss. Fondle the breasts of female agents as they fondle your junk.
We also think it would be great for a troop of nudists to come into the airport and strip naked.
Yeah, that's a ticket. Blow their minds with inventive social techniques.
Better yet, let's get a good law firm or group of attorneys General to bring legal action against the TSA for sexual molestation and violation of the 4th Amendment.
I don't travel anywhere I can't carry my gun. So my days on an airline getting the family jewels fondled won't happen. Happy flying! And get your thrills where you can.
