TSA Asking About Secession Petition (vanity)

Posted on 11/13/2012 7:33:23 PM PST by TigerClaws

Buddy flying DC to Louisiana was asked if he'd signed the petition to secede at WhiteHouse.gov.

Surprised that's being treated as anything as political theater. Do they ask people if they are members of Occupy Wall Street or Code Pink?

They are making their lists and checking them twice...

...just wait `till they unfurl their new policy of body cavity searches for “ammunition or drugs.”

Great way for .gov to get lists, just put up a petition like cheese to mice.

Are you sure your friend wasn’t just pulling your leg?
Just got back from flying and TSA only asked me what I had strapped to my crotch because it was glowing on the xray.

OK, I’ll bite, (and I acknowledge that may be a turn of phrase I should eschew) what did you have strapped to your crotch that glowed on the X-ray?

And just yesterday I said I was afraid to sign a petition because I didn’t want to end up on the no-fly list.

If this is true more reports of it will be coming in.

Sign the petition and you too can become tagged as a domestic terrorist. The no-fly lists weren’t long enough I suppose.

Probably nonsense.
Asked BY WHOM?
Please answer the question.
And if he was asked by an official of any kind at the
airport, what did he answer, and what was the response to
his answer?

Asked by TSA if he’d signed the petition. Thought the title explained it. He said no he had not.

They are up for 30 states. Sure many others will be asked if it is on their lost of things to ask. Surprise posting here isn’t on the list.

I had thought of taking a flight after painting a silhouette of a 1911 on my waist using silver metallic paint!
It ought to get me a guaranteed room and board for my remaining years.

.
Even better, like peanut butter to mice, but you’re right, these petitions are serving the gestapo well.

I actually got asked three times today. Once while paying my county property tax, once at the weigh station on the interstate, and once by my priest during confession.

Or

"No, I did not. They want to leave peacefully, and I think we should kick your asses first."

I do not know nothing there. ;-)
She showed me the xray and my crotch was glowing, I also got swiped for explosives.
The woman standing behind me, yelled and said “she is not a threat, get real”.
They pulled her aside for a full search.
I have had my shoulder glow, because I have pins in it, but my crotch....never before (maybe I am entering into a new phase of my life)
