TSA: Carcinogenic Petting Zoo

Katie Kieffer | Town Hall

The TSA is effectively an unconstitutional, carcinogenic petting zoo. Deep down, we all feel that the airport security system is an FDA-approved rubdown and radiation parlor. But we are busy, rushing to catch flights, and we tell ourselves it is for our “safety.” So, like sheep, we comply.


The TSA security process is in violation of the law of the land, specifically the Fourth Amendment: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Let’s be honest, when I “opt” for a pat-down over a blast of cancer-inducing radiation, it is not a choice—it is a preference for the lesser of two fixed evils. A pat- down is a clear violation of my “person;” there is no probable cause warranting random government agents to feel me up for weapons.

We have to leave early and visit the petting zoo.

It's an odd sort of prostitution?

Is it a free sex massage? Or Uncle Ernie diddling about? Who is the beneficiary?

In a free market trades are voluntary and both parties benefit or there is no trade.

Free includes debt-free!

I agree - I will not go through their back-scatter machines.

I just endure the grope and have to put my dignity on hold.

If this country had a real threat the borders would not be left wide open.

Pulling diapers off of 90 year old ladies makes us so much safer. I sure sleep better at night.

This is so obvious

"If this country had a real threat the borders would not be left open"
This is so obvious and yet many just do not "get it"

The spirit of Hitler and satan is alive and well in our government.
