I remember the line from Predator - "If it bleeds, we can kill it".
It's bleeding and it's time to kill it. Ironic that one of the stars of that movie now refuses to fly due to the harassment associated with doing so. www.infowars.com...
We can see and smell the blood. It's time to end the TSA. Hell, it's time to end the DHS, FEMA, DEA, and I could go on and on.

Definition of "search"
In Katz v. United States, 389 U.S. 347 (1967), the Supreme Court ruled that a search occurs only when 1) a person expects privacy in the thing searched and 2) society believes that expectation is reasonable.
so in that respect, since we are all aware that we will be subjected to unreasonable searches at the airport, though unreasonable they may be, our argument ends and is defeated when this ruling is applied, as none of us can expect privacy any longer (and ignorance is no excuse!), and society has accepted this.
Quote from : Wikipedia : Katz v. United States
Katz v. United States, 389 U.S. 347 (1967) is a United States Supreme Court case discussing the nature of the “right to privacy” and the legal definition of a “search”.
The Court’s ruling adjusted previous interpretations of the unreasonable search and seizure clause of the Fourth Amendment to count immaterial intrusion with technology as a search, overruling Olmstead v. United States and Goldman v. United States.
Katz also extended Fourth Amendment protection to all areas where a person has a "reasonable expectation of privacy".

The TSA is drunk with power. I am flying home next month to see my family and I don't know how I will handle this pat down.

Wow. There is a lot of fear and fearmongering in this topic. Casting fear of government in the minds of conspiracy theorists so they oppose government enforced security and support their own security to protect themselves from the government which then causes them to take away their own liberties by themselves.
