How to make "Opt Out" REALLY mean something

Please consider getting the contact info for your local airport, and editing this email with it. This is a way for all non-fliers to put teeth into "Opt Out" day.

"Opt out" of the x-ray, sadly, means "Grope me." And today they
announced refusing the grope will result in a fine. I want to relate
this to my background in medicine. The patient can stop surgery right
up to the point of being sliced open with these magic words: "I
withdraw consent."
Those TSA perverts now have MORE power to grope you than your doctor.
Here is the thing - the AIRPORT can hire a private security firm

Perhaps they would be less beholden to Michael Chertoff and friends.
Please start at 4:53 to get to the point here:

For the record, I "opted out" after they murdered Carol Gotbaum, we no
longer fly. Period. We drove to the RNC, remember?

If you all have had enough, I recommend you call AND email the airport
and tell them to OPT OUT OF TSA.

Please forward this to all local contacts. It would be nice to bombard
their lines and emails all day on "Opt out" day.

UPDATE:
Thanks to Bob45 for this excellent sample message that can be spoken or put on a 1/3 page flier and passed out:
THE THREAT OF TERRORISM IS REAL
Exposure to radiation, psychological and physical abuse, all out the hands of our government-annointed terrorists, the TSA.
YOU can do something about these terrorists. Opt out of the program and throw the TSA out of ... airport. Get TSA out of ... and out of our lives."

My Opt-out participation

Email to the airport:

To Whom it May Concern:

I usually fly once or twice a year out of _____ airport, and I want to inform you I will not be flying again until you opt-out of the TSA screening program.

I will not expose my body to unnecessary radiation, nor will I be subjected to the psychological and sexual abuse of the invasive pat downs that are now “required” by TSA if you opt-out of the radiation scanner.

I suggest you hire a trained, courteous private security firm instead.

Enough is Enough,

Sadly

Nothing we do will make a difference. We are far outnumbered by the sheep. People that will gladly let pervs look at their naked bodies or grope them and their families.
We are the minority and our voices do not matter. I have had to slow down on watching and reading here because it depresses me so badly.
I am so afraid of what our future holds. I would love to be reassured and told that we can make a difference. But we have seen that calls to our elected reps means nothing to them. Still the same people get re-elected and carry on business as usual.
I sound defeated, I know. Today I feel defeated.

Formerly rprevolutionist

yes, I am seeing this--

most people are accepting this.

I'm glad I don't have the $$$ to fly--

:/

but then I don't have any place to go anyway--

LOL!

besides right here.

And I'm here.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Yeah, the sheep will suffer

Yeah, the sheep will suffer any humiliation or crime to their person to "JUST GET THERE" so they can stuff their obese violated backsides with as much Turkey and gravy as they can, until they get probed and groped and x-ray sterilized and pornofied on the return trip.

But they'll already be used to criminal violations of their person, and too engorged to complain...

I like the idea Fishy. As I

I like the idea Fishy. As I will not be flying, I will be calling Philly Intnl., Northeast, Newark and Atlantic City.

thanks!

That's the spirit!

Here's what opting out is

trying to accomplish.

0:30-3:00, scenes from the movie Gandhi

It's an assault of a different kind they're trying to make a spectacle of.

Defend Liberty!

But so many people can not go to any kind of protest

and ANYONE can make a phone call. Or several! And these efforts dovetail perfectly. Additionally, people going to airports could say "I opt out and I want YOU to opt out of TSA contracts."

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

It might also help to call ALL the airlines flying out

of your airport and scream at them a little bit.
Tell them you have a ticket for a flight with their airline and your serving notice that if and when you are touched in an inappropriate manner you will be calling 911 and making a report of a sexual assault. When the police arrive GET ALL THE COPS NAMES WHAT JURISDICTION THEY'RE WITH AND THEIR BADGE NUMBERS, report the rapist and demand he / she be arrested. If they fail to comply
call again to report your being obstructed in reporting a felony sexual assault. Same thing. Get all names and identifying information. A crime is a crime, they are obligated to follow the law.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

I see the TSA intrusion as a long term positive.

I believe we are moving head long into civil war. What will bring this about more quickly is more government repression and certainly the TSA running roughshod over our rights is highly visible repression. I say make it even more insane, more offensive, more intrusive, and more widespread; the more people who feel the sting of this outlaw government the better.

And hopefully Obama will become even more visible in support of this thuggery.

One think about much of government thuggery is that it is not widely visible. The press certainly is nothing more than a rubber stamp for federal authority, no matter how unconstitutional, and don't even think that the federal courts which have consistently turned a blind eye to unconstitutional government will suddenly see the light. The IRS operates against us, one citizen at a time, and others do not see what happens to individuals; the unconstitutional monetary system is so complex that nobody seems to grasp the offense to their freedom that it brings; and much of the unconstitutional activity has become so common place that people just don't understand what it is doing to them.

So let them bring on more repression, the more visible and widespread, the better. We are going to arrive at a point where people will no longer support the existence of the federal government, and the quicker the federal government drives people into this mindset, the better, in my view.

Attempts such as these promoted in this thread are evidence of support for the federal government, not a reflection of the understanding that it is uncontrollable and should go the way of the USSR.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

We need to do all we can.

We need to do all we can. This is an outrage!

Will someone post examples of a good opt-out statement?

It will make it easier for those who WILL call their local airport on Opt-Out day. The phone lines will probably be busy and voicemail may answer.

"The threa of terrorism is real..."

Exposure to radiation, psychological and physical abuse, all out the hands of our government-annointed terrorists, the TSA.

Very helpful!

I will print it out and personalize it for my airport and have it waiting for opt-out day!

thanks for asking

and thanks to Bob45 for answering. Added it to the OP, I hope many will follow your lead!

Good work fishy!

^^

PLEASE take a look! This is insane!

Folks will bump the very funny joke about checking the man's ass, but this is THE serious thread about how to END TSA - and I have to self bump and beg for bumps.
PLEASE listen to me this time! I have to watch world changing ideas just roll away, no one reads or understands, I will never know, but this is a no brainer! Why do I have to pitch this so hard?

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

I hope others will post airport info--

Those of us who can't participate in "opt-out" day can call or email their local airport with a statement that they will not be flying UNTIL the airport does away with the unconstitutional pat downs if you refuse the radiation scanners.
Thanks for the contact info, Fishy. I will call or email on that day.

Thank you!

Exactly! ANYONE and everyone can have an impact that day, from the comfort of their home!

another resource, TSA flyers and posters

http://www.yaliberty.org/tsa

The link above has some great flyers ready for you to print.

Check out http://iroots.org/
"If you’re into political activism, at least for Ron Paul if not for anyone else, I strongly recommend spending some time with iroots.org." - Tom Woods

Can they make one about getting the airports to opt out?

I feel like I am not getting through. Individuals opting out is just ASKING to be groped. We could use all this "Opt Out" momentum to drive TSA out of existence. The entire airport system can opt out of their services, and that is what we need to explain to flyers. They need to go in and every time they encounter an airline employee, give them a flyer explaining that the AIRPORTS can opt out. If I make the flyer, will YAL post it?
