TSA refuses to let woman board for bad attitude
The Blaze ^ | 9/9/2012 | Erica Ritz

Posted on 09/09/2012 5:50:01 PM PDT by Astronaut

Woman: “Do you think that I am honestly a threat…?”

Male agent: “No, no, no, but with your attitude…”

Woman: “Let me get this straight. This is retaliatory for my attitude. This is not making the airways safer. It’s retaliatory.”

Male agent: “Pretty much…yes.”

Woman: “Is that legal?”

This article is posted more thoroughly on info wars .com but FR wont let me link to that site. Don't know why.

I think the world of President Bush but one of his greatest mistakes was creating the TSA, and agency manned by Nazi-wannabe thugs who ought to have jobs flipping burgers, but are instead harassing innocent citizens. The TSA is trying to condition people to blind obedience to the Federal government. If President Romney wont shut this nightmare agency down, we need to resist en masse. Complete resistance to the TSA/Gestapo would shut air travel down, and get noticed by our government masters pretty fast. BTW, the TSA has NEVER caught a single terrorist!

Wow. Just wow.

Warning to Freepers: You are all potentially banned from flying because you have bad attitudes.

Yeah, but there’s no telling how many they have
felt up, who were later so embarrassed they couldn’t
bring themselves to explode. /s

Good thing that TSA goon wasn’t dealing with me. There are times when it’s not really a good idea to try and exercise your authority over me, it doesn’t always work.

The only requirement to join the TSA is if you have a strong voice to yell for 8 hours straight...’PUT YOUR SHOES IN THE GRAY TRAY...IN THE TRAY DAMMIT!”

We will now have these brownshirts for the rest of our lives. They are the new IRS. Feared and despised.

one of his greatest mistakes was creating the TSA

His biggest mistake was his failure to shut down our borders. He should have closed our borders, especially our southern borders, immediately after 9/11.

But then his brother Jeb and his hispanic relatives would have been upset.

My bad attitude about the TSA is enough to keep me from flying. Also, not profiling Muslims is an insanity I prefer not to participate in.

I live in Alaska, I have relatives in the lower 48 I have not seen in many years, and probably won’t because of the TSA.

When its gone I’ll fly again, and go see Disneyland.

There was a time when the only “masked man” was the Lone Ranger, and he was one of the good guys. If you don’t believe me, ask Tonto.

The biggest problem I see is that the TSA employees are evolving into having “we are the overlords, you must respect and obey us” attitudes.

Although they try to appear to be polite, frequently what they are really meaning in their interactions with the American public is “You dissin’ me?-—YOU DISSIN’ ME?”

I suspect that many of them are of the mind that after 6 months of experience they should all be journeyman GS-15s and be able to retire at 75% pay after 15 years of strenuous TSA service.

That Agency is clearly in dire need of being “privitized” and the work contracted out in ALL of the nation’s airports.

You state that as though you're thinking about not flying. I take it a step further. I quit over 10 years ago. I will not put up that crap. They can take their damn planes and ram them where the sun don't shine!

While these pistoleros aren't TSA, they're the same type of critter. Taking sneakypete's comments from long ago, consider them semi-mobile supply centers for comms gear, colorful patches, badgers, paperwork,spares, vehicles, etc, and if you're really lucky a source of hi-carb hi-sugar snacks.

They are now playing “freeze” games, ordering people to freeze on command....I kid you not. It’s called Code Bravo.

I’m embarassed to admit that one of my brother-in-laws is a TSA agent at SFO (SFIA). He’s a big-time liberal loser, arrogant and is a jerk. Must be qualifications for the job. Anyway, he agitated and provoked me into an argument with him the other day while with relatives, out in public. Almost came to blows, but relatives kept us apart.

So while walking off in anger, he shouted “Don’t you dare come through My Airport!”. That was a clear threat to my well-being. Think I should call it in, or would his bosses congratulate him on his attitude? (By the way, his name is Sid if anyone there at SFO is reading this.)

Me too. Haven't been in an aircraft since 2005 and until the TSA is gone I won't sent foot in one. No need to be hassled by a flying bus service.

Agreed! I'd rather drive. We live in such a beautiful country.

I have never really liked flying. Love planes, looking at them and watching them in the air, but the whole TSA thing distances me even further from stepping foot on one.

Attitude? This is what the TSA Kabuki dancers are becoming:

Have you ever been tempted to ask them why they wear a badge if they have no police powers?

TSA is nothing more than a Bush administration jobs program for the chronically unemployed.

You are exactly right. TSA was a jobs program for the people that they are phasing out of the post office. It keeps the illusion of close to full employment alive.

It is also a great hidden tax as the cost for TSA is absorbed in the cost of the tickets.

I was going through security at BWI, and I forgot to take my watch off, so I covered it with my other hand, as they used to let you doe pre-9-11. The TSA-hole made me go back through with both arms at my sides, and no suggestion that I take my watch off.

Predictably, I set off the medtal detector, which resulted in a thorough wanding and a very personal pat search, which found nothing.

I hate flying anyway, and I keep hoping they will keep me off the plane, although not in a way that will put me on the no-fly list, or get me arrested, although putting me on the no-fly list may convince my wife that we are better off driving to most places.

I really laugh at airport security, which won’t let us take a bottle of water through, and then lets some people get away with taking all their wordly possessions in carryon luggage, precipitating pre-flight arguments over space for carryon luggage. I was on a flight on which it took an hour to get all the carryon luggage situated.

I have flown once since 9/11. I won't say "never again", but that farce of taking my shoes off every time I got on a plane was enough. I'll drive if I need to go somewhere.

Are there boats you could take? Or are they checking those, too?
