TSA Screenings - Not Just for Airports Anymore!

When I was an 11 year old, my parents took me on a bus through Checkpoint "C" (Charlie) from West Berlin to East Berlin. I believe my father, a WWII Veteran, wanted me to see firsthand what tyranny looked like.

This looks a lot like what we were staring in the face that day passing through the Berlin Wall...

Bring it on TSA. Bring it on.

This is me at the airport today: a walking Ron Paul billboard, complete with Super Brochures at the ready. Slightly blurry, but you can just make out "Revolution: A Manifesto" by Ron Paul in my hand as well. :-D

I so very much enjoy the opportunity to educate others about liberty and our Constitution. Especially TSA agents. :)

Our constitution is burnin

The Government is counting and inspecting their Cattle

I remember...

Being singled out in Czech Republic on a moving train. The doors were suddenly flung open and out of the 5 people in the cabin I was the only one detained by two police. It was quite embarassing being asked for my papers in front of others like that.

They did not even take me aside first, just blurted it out in front of everyone. lol

After a once over, I was free to go.

Nevertheless, it was still quite an unique experience.

Police search people all the

Police search people all the time without probable cause. I've even seen the Coast Guard do it on the ferry boat between Galveston and Pt. Bolivar Texas. We go to war without a declaration of war (as required by the constitution) all the time. The government takes people's property all the time. The restraints the constitution originally placed on government have been ignored for so long that most Americans aren't even aware of them.

What is happening is NOT the destruction of our liberties, that's old news. What is happening is that a lot of Americans are waking up to the fact that all that "We live in the freest country in the world" crap was mere grade school propaganda. The constitution is dead and has been for a long time. The only way we're ever going to get freedom in this country is recognize our lack of it and need for it.

WTF La Times

"Privacy advocates worry that the agency is stretching legal limits on the government's right to search U.S. citizens without probable cause — and with no proof that the scattershot checkpoints help prevent attacks."

No, privacy advocates rightly point out that what the TSA does is outright illegal. Legal limits are utterly broken, not "stretched".

The

only "Terrorist" threat I see is the TSA.

That is no threat, they incite genuine terror.

I absolutely, positively, never in this life, will consent to sexual assault. Ain't happenin' - I will walk wherever I need to go or stop going anywhere. I am stubborn, granted, but it is more than that. I am absolutely terrified of the very thought of trying to fly, and it has nothing to do with airplanes.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

I said something similar below:

I won't let some goon touch me or my children. I will probably get tased and put in jail.

That scares me, but I am NOT submitting to sexual assault without a hell of a fight.

Even then,

You could face a much more severe sexual assault at the hands of jailers. Best to steer clear as best you can.

They'd beat me to a pulp before that.

I will not submit.

Have the "terrorists" already won???

How despairing it is to see that we are quickly becoming a "policed-nation" at a very rapid pace. Give it two weeks and you will have to be approved at a security check-point to use a pay toilet or put quarters into a parking meter. Basically, we ARE being "terrorized", we are funding it, and they are trying to "display" it all as being "good for us". I am not trying to be bleak, here. I am being realistic. At the same time, I refuse to cave to any sort of defeat when it comes to my freedoms and liberties as a Red White and Blue U.S. citizen. In terms of American leadership, I remain a hardcore and steadfast Ron Paul supporter. As long as we continue to "fight the good fight", we have a chance to restore our Freedoms and Liberties. Also, a big shout-out to Michael Nystrom for keeping this hub alive and well. TY, Michael!!!

There seems to be no outcry

There seems to be no outcry from young people. They think this keeps them safe. They are already indoctrinated from Federally run schools. Things like this make me lose hope. The neighbors and business owners should have all come out and told them to GO.

Not quite sure what kind of

Not quite sure what kind of young people you are hanging around. This young person and her peers have been living with this utter shyte fest for our entire lives and we are sick of it, absolutely SICK of it. And the comments on that article are telling. Think the tide is starting to turn. I can't believe that people are so utterly afraid of death that they would live in hell.

Yep

The young people are not happy. Trust me. Us 20 and 30 year olds are just waiting for the baby boomers to die so we can step in.

We may not be able to wait much longer.

Won what?

They lost my business, I used to fly a lot.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

The TSA are Nazis.

They should be wearing swastika armbands, so they can be properly identified.

Link doesn't work for me

I'm angry at the people who let the TSA get away with molestation at the airports. If we all had boycotted them then, they wouldn't be prowling the highways for people to fondle and humiliate.

They are trying to "make us feel weak and pathetic so we'll willingly give up our sovereignty, our liberty, our destiny. We should NOT SUBMIT to dehumanization!"

(Quoting AJ)

I won't let some goon touch me or my children. I will probably get tased and put in jail.

TSA....

9/11 was an inside job .....time to get some answers..RP 2012

Funny comment

Frightening story, but at least one of the comments made me spit out my coffee:

"ALL YOUR GENITAL ARE BELONG TO US!" -- Tourism Suppression Agency

Too funny!

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

This is what we are fighting against.

It is depressing and frightening to see

what our country has come to. I just wish more people would wake up. There is a lot of historical precedent that indicates this will all end very badly for the American people.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

Complete with a TSA choir on the right-hand bottom lol

Oh, I love the choir....

Our tax dollars in action. I can hear Lawrence Welk now, "Thank you boysa. We would now like to entertain you with a magical Broadway tune, "Springtime for Hitler and Germany."

*****The Federal Reserve is neither.*****

I have to laugh to keep from crying. :)
