Breaking: Former Gov. Ventura Will No Longer Fly Due to Abuse Hes Endured at Hands of TSA
Current TV ^ | November 19, 2010

Posted on 11/20/2010 1:38:08 PM PST by george76

Jesse Ventura, announced he will no longer use commercial airlines due to the egregious abuses of the TSA and the government.

Ventura said he made the decision to avoid public aircraft after he found himself becoming too comfortable with being routinely searched. He said he was subjected to pat down and search three or four times a week when he traveled for his television show. Ventura had hip surgery and the metal in his body invariably sets off airport metal detectors.

Jesse said he will no longer be forced by the TSA to prove he is not a criminal or terrorist. He refuses to be considered guilty until proven innocent by the government in violation of the Fourth Amendment. He also admitted the decision not to fly may put an end to his career.

If everyone stopped flying for three days, all at the same time, it would send a message to the TSA. Pick a date to start. Airlines would be all ove the TSA.

All that steroid abuse must have made the Gov a “little” self conscious.
He never complained when Hogan grabbed his junk.

Waitaminnut Jesse—the homosexuals in the TSA (you can bet under the Obama administration the poofters are fast-tracked to the “ogle or grope” positions)—will just flit themselves into foofoo fairy dust if they can't “secure” such a hunky bod like yours!

The first Nazi concentration camp at Dachau trained the Death's Head SS how to do evil without guilt.

The homosexual agenda is using the TSA “ogle or grope” for the same purpose—the elimination of DADT is next—the queering of America.

If he needed to fly because of his TV show, does that mean he’s been canceled?

Not flying is the best way to handle problems with TSA procedures.

Until they:

1. profile
2. apply random searches before, during, and after flights
3. apply them equally with no exceptions

I’ll not support TSA procedures, although I will submit to them if I must fly. I will keep “must fly” to an absolute minimum.

The airlines will then complain to the government about the reduced traffic.

It was funny that here in Cleveland, the Mike Trivisanno Show, on WTAM, would put on this “conspiracy” talker named “Mr. Blue.” The voice was heavily modified electronically to sound inhuman. But I knew by the end of the first sentence that it was Ventura! He has a very identifiable speech pattern and mannerisms. Can’t fool me! I emailed Triv about it a couple of times, but got no answer. If he comes on again, I’m gonna call in and ask him;
“So Jesse, what’s with this “Mr Blue” pseudonym?”

I'll skip over commenting on why any thing this guy has to say is
breaking news, ...

But I think the [alleged] steroids have done damage to points North
of his junk.

I had Dennis Miller (radio) on in the background when Ventura
came on to promote his conspiracy show a couple of weeks ago.

I think Miller asked him about the twin towers being an inside job,
and instead of saying something like the standard "The
producers are presenting alternative theories blah, blah,
blah...", Ventura got quite irate.

I'm pretty sure he hung up on Miller.

Heck, even Arlen Specter will give you the facts as he thinks what
they are on his "magic bullet" theory w/o blowing up in a rage.

The only way I will ever fly again is if they profile, OR, they have a lineup of Hooters girls that I can choose from to do the grope. Hooters needs to think outside the box and start its own airline.

If I remember my history correctly, they did decide to boycott the buses.

The Montgomery Bus Boycott is famous. Dr Martin Luther King arrived and told everyone the only way to fight was to boycott the buses. People were arrested for arranging car pools, waiting for rides, etc.

It’s famous. It was non-violent on the part of the boycotters.

It’s probably an excellent idea.

Too bad we don’t have a conservative with the stature of Dr King to get it kicked off.

Maybe I’ll just call in to Mike’s show, and ask him when he’s gonna have “Mr. Blue” on again. “Ya know Mike, Jesse Ventura?”

Hey,Jesse, here's a scanner image of a real criminal. Instead of paying for crippling the airline industry and conditioning Americans to more and more indignities and abuse at the hands of her minions, she'll wind up with a fat pension paid by the same taxpayers she's humiliating and, more importantly for our freedoms, PISSING OFF!

Hooters did start their own airline several years ago. It has gone out of business or it just does charter now, not sure which.
