Surprise! TSA looks closer at people who complain about ... TSA

From the Keep-Your-Mouth-Shut-and-Everything-Will-Be-OK department:

Washington (CNN) -- Don't like the way airport screeners are doing their job? You might not want to complain too much while standing in line.

Arrogant complaining about airport security is one indicator Transportation Security Administration officers consider when looking for possible criminals and terrorists, CNN has learned exclusively. And, when combined with other behavioral indicators, it could result in a traveler facing additional scrutiny.

Let's do something about it

This bill will outlaw TSA groping in one of the largest states in the union:


I complain all the time, no trouble from TSA

Perhaps because I won't fly.

TSA is Homegrown terrorism. It figures the government would create what they feared, all by themselves, with our money.

And they couldn't find anything to cut? They weren't looking.

Free includes debt-free!

In that case, would wearing

In that case, would wearing an "I Love the TSA" t-shirt allow you to fly through security with ease?

The searches obviously

are not to find terrorists of the 1st kind. Soo, what are they for then? To hassle people until some rebel and then they have found what they are looking for. Terrorists of the third kind-or whatever the number is for searching out patriots who hate our government including the TSA.

Yeah right, like a ter'rist

Yeah right, like a ter'rist is going to call attention to himself by complaining and pointing out the idiocy of thier protocols. That department must be the biggest morons in gov't. Doesn't help their case that Pistole blatantly lied when he said that children under 12 wouldn't recieve the enhanced patdown yet they still do.

That's what tyrannical and oppressive

agencies do.
They use fear and intimidation and retribution to stifle dissent from anyone questioning their absolute authority to destroy your life.

In other words, the TSA is a terrorist organization.

The TSA and Homeland Security must be disbanded.

Behavior Officer!

Vote this up if just the idea of Behavior Officers alone is outrageous!


or punishment for dissenters?

Chertoff's next money grab for Israeli contracts


INTERVIEW-Chertoff keen on Israeli airport security technology

Thu May 29, 2008 By Avida Landau

JERUSALEM, May 29 (Reuters) - U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said on Thursday he will seek to adopt novel Israeli methods, like behaviour-detection technologies, to better secure America's airports.

"That's a scenario where Israel has a lot of experience," Chertoff said in an interview with Reuters. "I think that it is of interest to us to see if there is any adaptation there."

Israel's Ben-Gurion International Airport, known for its strict security measures, relies heavily on techniques that detect suspicious behaviour among travellers.

Chertoff said such methods, as well as Israeli technologies that detect explosives, are some of the things that may help protect U.S.airports and other public places against attacks.

Chertoff, at a conference in Jerusalem for public and homeland security ministers from around the world, signed an agreement with Israel to share technology and information on methods to improve homeland security.

One of the new systems presented at the conference, developed by the Israeli technology company WeCU, uses behavioural science, together with biometric sensors, to detect sinister intentions among travellers.

"Give a man a gun, and he could rob a bank. Give a man a bank, and he could rob the world."

Israel is a Democracy, America is a Republic.

The last thing we should be doing is copying Israel!

Notice they're only

interested in the technologies. Pistol learned a lot from Chertoff, mainly keep those contractors happy and you too might one day get a high-paying "consulting" position when you leave.

As I was reading this, I'm watching a movie called Equilibrium about a postapoctalyptic society where emotion is outlawed...weird. Don't show emotion as you're being molested. How much more outrageousness are we seriously going to put up with from these thugs? It's interesting that the only "behavioral indicator" they released to the public is "Very arrogant and expresses contempt against airport passenger procedures," as I'm sure that's the normal reaction of any red blooded American not willing to lick the jackboot. These "procedures" are put into place to catch terrorists?...Give me a break.

Have these people no sense of history?

Do they not know what eventually happens to oppressors?
I would expect Janet Napolitano to know.

I suspect what they lack is a

I suspect what they lack is a sense of decency. Whatever happened to Ron Paul's Bill about travel with dignity????

So the message is: "Shut up"

CNN is basically saying if you don't like getting groped, keep your mouth shut and you MIGHT avoid it. Maybe people should grope back?? When the agent grabs your "junk", rub their cheeks (your choice which ones).
Or get really into it and ask if they could do it for "just one more minute--I'm almost there".
Or--pack a bunch of random crazy stuff. Rubber chickens, the 30ft hankerchief, etc. Make the stupid slaves earn their $11/hr.


I love it.

I always thought I'd do the same thing. Warn them that you are extremely sensetive "down there" and as soon as the pat down starts moan like it's the greatest thing ever. When finished, ask if there's anyone else that might like to practice their pat down skills.

I'm still laughing over the 30ft hankerchief. Wow.

Just had a thought...

If you are a gay guy, does a male or female TSA guy get to feel you up?

Let those in the military

Let those in the military know that this(partly) is what they're fighting for.

Children being groped by the government at airports and elsewhere...
The destruction of the dollar by the governments central bank...
The highest prison population of any country
and a label for ex military as possible terrorists
and many more...

articles get me more upset then just about anything else. Scum of the universe They told me to stop taping them molesting my 67 year old grandfather. Why? Well, because you might also tape other people that want to maintain their privacy. No, I want to tape your men assaulting my grandfather and nothing else. Well how do i know that that is the case. Because i just told you, you ass. I hate the TSA with every bone in my body, I never wear underwear when i travel so that the day I get selected for and advanced pat down I can slap my coin purse against someones chin to make sure they get a real good god damn look.

I can see the news article....

They are really gonna call you a "Tea Bagger" now.....


I wouldn't even get offended if they did.


I'm smiling.

I can't figure out the relationship between no underwear and a coin purse.

Happy traveling.

I will be flying in a couple of months...

..& I intend to make lots of eye contact, & verbally express my contempt for the screening process.

I also will ask my son (whose wedding I am attending) to write the following on my chest.

"Attention predators and pedophiles:
the Nuremberg Defense didn't work for the German nazis. What makes you think it's going to work for you?"

& on my back, the list of alliances below. (& for anyone who could help me out with the Lakota for "I am Mean-to-Horses" I will send a "One Dollar" Federal Reserve Note. & I'll even spring for the postage!)

First Rule of the Police State: Critics Shall Be Punished!!!!!

"First Rule of the Police State: Critics Shall Be Punished!!!!!"

Its written right there, in the TSA manual.

Call a TSA Agent a civil rights violator, a criminal, or a sexually abusive groper, and expect to be PUNISHED.

First Amendment Rights is meaningless when the guys with the guns are calling the shots.

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

And they call it the Patriot Act.

Homegrown terrorism.

President Ron Paul will take care of this BS

I can't wait to see the faces of people employed by TSA DHS IRS e.t.c. when they get the pink slip courtesy of Ron Paul's administration.

Thanks for posting Michael.

We could only hope.

I guess I wouldn't mind first the TSA being dismantled, as long as later in the day the IRS is next on the chopping block. Then the EPA, then OSHA, then the DOE, then the FCC, oh gosh, just fire everybody in the federal gov't.

And believe it or not, life would go on.
