Nice thread but I have said this before. Flying is neither a right nor a privilege, it is a consumable product folks.This is not a coup against our rights as i am pretty certain the amendments and bill of rights do not protect us or address this. This is about common decency. My questions is WHY has the president of the United States stepped forward and said stop....
Shut up and be scanned
Would you rather pose for a nude photograph or be groped by a federal employee? To hear many fliers these days, those are the only two choices for air passengers as the Transportation Security Administration installs full-body scanners at airports and introduces a more invasive pat-down technique that some have likened to sexual molestation. We're not wild about the new methods either, but they're a necessary evil in the era of suicide bombers who board planes with chemical explosives in their underwear.

I just read this article on Drudge Report: www.sun-sentinel.com...
So your options will be like it states, submit or pay!! So, now, you not only can be stopped from boarding the aircraft, but be questioned by TSA, law enforcement, and face a fine!!
First, the current administration just signed the largest arms deal ever so it is everywhere and not just Bush and Co. When are people going to stop that garbage? Read a book and do some more research as it is widespread.
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.

Sorry, I guess should have said insert sarcastic comment here about the president stopping it. He is not in charge and I laugh at the use of tele-prompters with him. He has been an embarrassment on the world stage. My point was actually that this is in a 9/11 forum trying to link the Bush cabal to the loss of rights/FEMA/whatever when this is being done during an administration that could step forward and STOP this since it is a Federal Agency instead of trying to associate blame. The TSA is tasked with creating the law and the TSO's are there to enforce them but they are just workers. Why have NONE of them stepped up and said they will not do it?
This is another step to slowly degrade and bring down we as a nation...crime is common...jobs are hard to find...now the last step is to subject yourself to a grope by a complete stranger to get on a plane? It is like a man or a woman who slowly brings their mate down to a submissive level where anything is acceptable and anything can be done without hesitation or resistance. For too long we as a nation have been told to look the other way and not get involved and it has allowed us to be slaves to what is our government. Most people do not see it, they just want Starbucks, monday night football and SUV's.....edit on 20-11-2010 by esdad71 because: (no reason given)
