Posted on 11/17/2010 1:24:16 PM PST by FS11
Yesterday, two airline pilots filed a federal suit alleging that airport scanners and aggressive pat-down procedures constitute unreasonable searches in violation of the Fourth Amendment.

They’re already practicing by doing the strip searches/pat-downs and X-Ray machines at random bus stations. Some news show featured one in Tampa the other day. I can’t remember which channel, but of course the spin was how wonderful it is that we’ll now be harassed at the bus stations.
And those of us who live and travel within 100 miles of the border are no longer free to drive our cars, without interrogation and obtrusive questions from the BP, dogs sniffing cars like we’re criminals, etc. All in the primary lines, mind you.
Thousands of miles of border are wide open, north and south end, anyone can cross over. But in the interior, we Americans must present papers at will, be groped and pawed, humiliated, subjugated, interrogated. The New World Order is a delight.
Yep, exactly why we must fight this stuff tooth and nail. Isn’t living in a police state just wonderful? /s
“I wonder if hogs could be trained”
The Muslims would love that.
I’ve been posting about this for years (here and other places), and although most people in general seemed receptive, I still felt like a lone voice. I am so proud of these people taking public stands (the pilots and others) — they are very brave. Gives me a teeny bit of hope....
I could see the police state coming ... but it was always just a little over the horizon. Now it’s completely here!
Hussein said that an illegal might get stopped in AZ for buying an ice cream cone... he’s awfully quiet now that this is about Americans being harassed and monitored (AND WITHOUT PROBABLE CAUSE!!)
He had Ann Coulter and some commie lawyer on talking about the TSA molesters and the ACLU commie lawyer kept interrupting Ann Coulter not letting her get a word in and Sean just let it happen.
You can clearly hear Ann ask Sean "can you hit the mute button?". But Hannity let the left wing psycho lawyer go on and on.
I'll stick with Glenn Beck and Michael Savage. Hannity caters to leftists. He has Bob Beckel, Marc Lamont Hill and other commie pigs on his show.
What he did to Ann Coulter tonight is inexcusable.
> you would justifiably be sued for many millions of dollars for people’s lost vacation and travel expenses.
You cannot be sued for exercising your rights, or they aren’t rights at all.
You have the right under the current regs to opt out.
Starting your argument with a dispositive negates your line of reasoning.
“And why does Sean still have Karl Rove as a guest from time to time on his radio show? Rove betrayed conservatives.
Because Sean Hannity has extremely poor judgement, and is not the brightest bulb on the tree. He has Al Sharpton on and calls him a “good friend.” or at least he did the last time I heard him, which caused me to quit listening to him.

Much easier to implant an device into men’s abdomens. Shorter recovery time, larger volume, less people staring.
LOL...Welcome back darlin’. How ya doin’?
It was disgusting.
I pity the women the most. As I sat there and there were 3 women in 30 minutes that set off the metal detector even after taking off all metal objects. All three were 55-65 year old white women that were full figured. My assumption was they were likely wearing underwire bras.
So under the new rules they get subjected to the “enhanced patdown”. This is the disgusting part. In full view of the entire frick’n airport a TSA agent stands in front of the victim and rubs the back of her hand in circles around each breast. Then the TSA agent rubs the back of hand up and down over the front surface of the victim's breast. Each of the victims turned bright red with embarrassment while this was happening. The TSA agents took their time and were in no hurry as they stroked the women's breasts. It was very disturbing to watch.
The look on the faces of the victims as they walked away was that of abject embarrassment. I really got the feeling they have never been treated like this before (having their breasts stroked repeatedly in public by a stranger).
This crap has to stop. These women were no threat to anybody and they have to groped in public according to the new rules? It is sick and twisted.
From what I understand, it's sort of the other way around: more perverts will be working for the TSA in order to perform the kind of groping for which they would otherwise be arrested.
I lost that whiny, liberal loving douche bag a long time ago.
Hannity once almost had sex with Charlie Rangle on his show. After letting the criminal have free use of the airwaves for 10 minutes or so he then told him how much he respects him.
Hannity = POS.
The scanners make an image of the outside of the body, making them essentially useless for bomb detection, so why the scans (besides the multiple levels of psychological warfare)? To inflict illness?
Or is this all going into a database... a full bodyprint identification system? Start with the airports, move on to the DMV, banks, etc.
Those Amish grandmothers are so dangerous, they need a panty check..
Hannity is a slobbering hack. He is a worthless piece of scum.
