organized TSA protest

What if a whole group of us bought some cheap plane tickets and throughout the day we each go through the TSA line and lay the heckling on the TSA agents? Normally we have somewhere to be and can't afford to be detained, but can you afford a hundred bucks for a good opportunity at a peaceful but rude protest?

Basically refuse the body scanner, refuse to be patted down, and yell out remarks every time you see it happening to anyone in front of you, like "You enjoy rubbing him down, don't you, you big sexy beast? I bet you can't wait to put your hands down the pants of that 14 year old girl, you sicko! How about pulling out some catheters? Does that get you off?"

What do you think? Any flaws in the idea? I mean clearly you'll get detained, but assuming you've got time.

How Funny!


Or Play this Song as You are Patted Down


The song is great, the video that goes with it is even better.

My Favorite Protest of TSA

It got little news coverage a few weeks ago. The man was arrested but released as the judge recognized his "non-verbal" right to freedom of speech. The man put up his hand stopping the agent getting ready to pat him down. The man then stripped naked, now go ahead and pat me down.

I wish I could be that bold!

From the TSA website:

On September 11, 2001, the Air Marshal Program consisted of less than fifty armed marshals who, by statute, flew only on international flights flown by U.S. air carriers. The tragic events which unfolded that day demonstrated the need for an expanded law enforcement presence on board American carriers on both foreign and domestic flights.

As a result of the attacks, President George W. Bush ordered the rapid expansion of the Federal Air Marshal Service. Over 200,000 applications were initially received, from which several thousand qualified Federal Air Marshals were selected. Those who were hired came from a diverse background of experience including other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies and the military.


So, you see, you are fighting the wrong end of the stick.

Fish rots from the head (as Russians say).

TSA agents are close to mimimum wage control freaks. But they are put in power by someone above.

Most sheep will oppose you sabotaging their airplane seating. Security trade off for liberties.

You'd be better off handing out some educational material on liberty rights erosion than starting a rucus in the airports.

Yeah I hear ya

We all are feeling the frustration and a bit hopeless and helpless.

If this were a Clint Eastwood movie things would be different.

I hope a few days off will revive us.

Not a bad idea, as long as we don't arrested
