Yea, Right: Our Rulers Want Your Comments on The TSA

The TSA suffered a partial loss in a lawsuit several years ago when the Electronic Privacy Information Center “petitioned the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to suspend the body scanner program, stressing its core assertion that ‘the TSA has acted outside of its regulatory authority and with profound disregard for the statutory and constitutional rights of air travelers.’” With profound disregard for those same concerns, the gowned clowns decreed that the TSA could continue irradiating passengers; after all, a technology so dangerous that Europe has banned its use is invaluable for training American serfs to obey: “The Court did not require TSA to stop using [porno-scanners] to screen passengers,” as the TSA itself says, “explaining that ‘vacating the present rule would severely disrupt an essential security operation,’ and that the rule is ‘otherwise lawful.’” Well, yeah -- so long as you eviscerate the Fourth Amendment. But heck: the injustice system’s job is to strengthen the government and keep our taxes flowing to its cronies, not uphold the Constitution.
