Write your new Congressman - First order of business - Eliminate The Naked Scanners (and then the T.S.A itself)Submitted by adam1mc on Mon, 11/15/2010 - 12:56
We need a good old fashion email campaign to all of our new (or maybe not so new) Congresspeople. The first order of business should be to eliminate the naked image scanners from the nations airport.
I've already written my Congressman. I copied the letter below. Feel free to use it as your own.
It'll only take 2 minutes. Everyone get to writing
First and foremost -- CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR RECENT VICTORY!!!!
Now, down to business. Congressman, recent and national outrage over the T.S.A. and their absurd policies of sexually assaulting passengers is well warranted and this behavior MUST be reined in as soon as Congress returns.
The employees of the T.S.A. have proven themselves time and time again incapable and too morally deficient to over-see security operations for the nation.
T.S.A. employees are routinely making the news. Regardless if it's a pedophile T.S.A. agent:
or a T.S.A. agent who claims that he is God:
or T.S.A. agents who are so unprofessional as they (1) intimidate others because of the image that appears on the naked scanner AND (2) subsequently gets pulverized by another T.S.A agent for very said jokes:
or even the person who was threatened (by a Federal agent mind you) with a $10,000 fine if he didn't consent to a sexual assault by T.S.A.:
This behavior is repugnant and unconstitutional and must be reined in as one of the first orders of business for the new House.
Federal employees can NOT be allowed to violate the 4th amendment of the Constitution all for their own benefit. The Constitution is in place to protect the people from an oppressive Government and we are in need of these protections today.
Ben Franklyn's words must be heard today:
"People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both."
These untested x-ray machines are not only reported to be unhealthy, but is also widely known do not detect certain types of weapons that are currently in use by terrorists today.
These machines DO NOT make us safer. They only serve to steal the liberties of every day Americans thus subjecting us further to a totalitarian government which routinely listens to phone calls, reads emails and now searches people WITHOUT CAUSE.
What next? Cameras in our house?
Please rid our Country of these evasive machines and once that has been completed I urge to to put forth legislation to eliminate wasteful spending. ELIMINATE THE T.S.A.!
Thank you for your time.
