HomeGovernmentTSA Gropes The Wrong Person: A Congressman’s Niece Black & Right November 21, 2012 Government 7 Comments And as long at this happens mostly to us while as seldom as it appears to happen to our ruling elite and their families, this unfortunately will continue. With that, have a great traveling holiday. Tallyman The blue gloves substitute for jackboots to empower the evil of these cretinious low life who would receive no respect if they weren’t in Barack’s homeland security corps(e). Lord Acton quoted. “Power tends to corrupt” and “The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections.” These blue gloved statist thugs are corrupted as easily as Barack and his cronies. They are a vanguard without jackboots of Barack’s promised army for internal control. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2012-11-21/guest-post-statist-thugs-and-rocks-they-crawl-out-under Koala The congressman called for a PROBE? Ouch! n.n It is also not an isolated incident. Furthermore, the technology and approach employed by the TSA does not and cannot prevent terrorism. At its worst, it will motivate a detonation at or near the checkpoint. What it does do is narrow the avenues of opportunity for prospective terrorists and other criminals. Well, other than for the security agents themselves. The system must be closed-loop in order to ensure accountability. As for the TSA itself, as it is currently constituted, it seems to represent little more than an effort to shift liability and direct costs from private sector actors. Koala You are so right, n.n. My cute little dog could root out the terrorists with less intrusion. n.n They’re cute and effective until they permit their egos to overwhelm their better nature and judgment. RightSide Right on! By jamming passengers up in long security checkpoint lines they’ve created a choke point that has more targets than a single aircraft. Blowing up the checkpoint would generate a much bigger yield; some 400 to 500 waiting line line versus 130 in a plane? IMO, they make it LESS secure by bunching everyone up. This is brain dead security. n.n It’s possible that there are also covert measures, which escape public scrutiny; but, that does not excuse the overt measures, which remove the assumption of innocence, and are blatantly unconstitutional. Frankly, I’m surprised there was greater offense taken to querying status of criminals than unnecessary and excessive molestation of citizens and residents. The human rights businesses were, once again, selective in enforcing their “mandate.” I’m not sure who has a worse record, the authorities or their official overseers.
