Since when did Sheriff’s Deputies or State Troopers become an arm of the Federal .gov? They certainly aren’t enforcing state law. I smell a rat.

Considering that the Feds had a cartwheeling fit when State and local authorities in Arizona were going to enforce what they said was Federal Law, someone has some 'splaining to do.

I didn’t need one during that visit. It was actually fun to see many of them agreeing with us. I think all but the brain dead are realizing what a complete failure Barry Soetoro is and what his goals are and they aren’t liking it. But I have no doubt that they will vote for the POS again. They are sheep.

It’s way easier to kill rail passengers with bombs - longer time frame, more places to hide explosives, including the tracks. Trains are just another metal tube filled with people.

Americans will be “bitterly clinging” to their cars, I’m afraid:)

If you don't comply then you can't fly. All this talk is silly.

Not exactly. Two words: Charter.

You nailed it. This is the story that no one is talking about.

People forget that the Bush color-code system has, for the most part, has completely gone away. Personally, I liked it. Now, we suddenly see pretty elevated screening procedures, but not a peep on any increased "chatter" or threat level.

I want to know what they know, but aren't talking about. And, that's what we should be focused on.

It is clear from all the arrests of TSA Perverts (including high ranking TSA Officials) that BO & Big Sis intentionally hired sexual perverts to assault the American People.

Call your County Sheriff, DA, Grand Jury Foreman and Police Chief and demand that BO’s TSA Pervert Thugs be arrested for assault.

It is impossible to ‘act the fool’ for asserting your Constitutional rights against unreasonable search of one’s person. And getting arrested for it is okay with you?

You sir, are on the wrong site. China’s State Security blog might be more in line with your thinking. Don’t bother responding. I am indeed done with you.

Please . . . remember to call it “Obama’s TSA”. (nuff said?)

No, not enough said. It was Bush who appointed a Democrat to set it up this monster.

If well trained folks are checking out passengers I wouldn’t be as concerned. But no way could there possibly be that many micro expression experts willing to man security checkpoints. I’ve considered just wearing a t-shirt that says “Just anxiety... I am not going to blow you up or steal your stuff. Leave me alone.”

Welcome to the Brave New World. I’m not flying anywhere anymore.

I have not flown for almost 10 years, and I can't imagine that I will ever fly again. They force us to submit to demoralization or to reduce our lifestyles. This is what the government does to people.

As a global business traveler for 40+ years I am well aware of what you opine...In fact I just returned from Perth AU two weeks ago - having made two round trips there since June.

Other countries, including Australia, currently do not subject passengers to this type of aggressive process

As to Michael Chertoff’s antics - is that “guilt by association”..?

My key point still stands - i.e. the current level of outrage over “implementing” these nude scanners and enhanced “groping” of private parts would be 10 times greater - with the lamestream media leading the charge, if it were Bush (or any Republican) occupying the White House

Pistole’s action as an employee of the FBI is not germane to his responsibilities in the TSA., except insofar as now the entire population of the US are his ‘bad guys.`

He is now in a Policy and Public relations position and obviously he has failed disastrously in those endeavours.

I am sure he is good to his children and would help old ladies across the road - but that should be immaterial to a Senate Oversight hearing at the very moment went the county is in an uproar of terrifying 3 year olds, groping children and assaulting women.

Even if Sen. McCaskill refers to them as ‘love taps’ and is ‘wildly excited· at prospect of being electronically stripped. Of course after showing her Senate ID card to avoid such a situation.

Exactly what this Arizonian had in mind when I wrote it.

On your post 56: great point about the children. And the backscatter scan is unsafe, it exposes you to a dose of radiation, that could be very dangerous for people that are prone to cancer, have had cancer, the young and the elderly.

I need to get to Boston next month and had considered flying, but we really do live within (long) driving distance and will do that instead. This settled the matter for me.

Mr. mm and I were thinking of a trip to FL to visit his mother and I don’t know if he’d go for driving or not. That’s a long trip on the road.

**I will ask my contact for clarification but my understanding is that it means once you are actually in the process of being screened.**

So, once they start molesting your young child, you cannot tell them to stop and leave the area. This is crazy and these people are thugs.

Everyone needs to be stopped and frisked on the sidewalk, and in public parks, and everywhere else... until it is determined that they don’t pose a threat. After all, the operating paradigm is apparently the presumption of guilt until innocence is proven. This includes molesting children - for the children, of course.
