TSA, A Major Threat to Public Health?

The Transportation Security Agency has potentially become a major threat to the Public Health of the nation. This ties in nicely to amping the FEAR factor in this time of terror-awareness that comes with every holiday season!

All those blue-gloved creatures that are so busy fondling and squeezing and caressing the intimate organs of the human bodies of both men and women, as well as children and infants, present a very real problem when it comes to sexually transmitted diseases. AIDS, Syphilis, and a whole family of sexually transmitted diseases are transferred by human-body-fluids.

Nothing has been mentioned about this by TSA, in their zeal to molest everyone that chooses to fly in America: But I don't recall ever seeing any of them changing their gloves from one "passenger" to the next.

Rude as this might seem there are a great many Americans that do not wear underwear; and these people tend to be some of the better looking people; hence the additional treatment that such people might get from TSA agents. However this practice might just be rewarded by leaving some of the liquids obtained from their exposed genitals upon the gloves of the agent, who can then freely pass those potentially infected bodily fluids on to the next person they are eagerly waiting to fondle.

No mention of this possibility has been even been "touched on" by TSA (pun intended) which is why I'm raising the topic here. But the threat of the possibility of passing out deadly diseases is more than just possible under the current practices and procedures of TSA: It is more than likely that you might have to pay for going through a molestation, given by that private-corporation that is the government, by contracting a life-ending disease; "just because you thought you had to catch a plane?"

It's your choice people is your life worth the risk that TSA might give you AIDS or Syphilis, or any of the other extremely harmful if not deadly diseases just because the perverts at TSA don't give a damn about the health or welfare of the chattel they routine molest every hour of every day!

Call the Centers for Disease Control and ask them if this "practice" of physical exams without changing gloves each and every time is healthy or better yet ask them what they can do to prevent their brother federal agency from passing out major diseases wholesale - to the general public: In the interests of maintaining NATIONAL SECURTY of course.

If this turns out to be the case who is going to pay for this callous disregard of the Public Health in the name of National Security? Both are agencies of the feral corporation which has 37,000 subsidiary components so who exactly is going to sort this out because every aspect of the courts are also part of this giant stock-holding company that trades us like commodities on the Stock Exchange each and every day. Who among the 37,000 subsidiaries will absorb the "loss" when someone comes down with AIDS which agency exactly will have to eat the cost of this little problem and how many of you want to run this risk!

Thanksgiving weekend has traditionally been when colds and the flu EXPLODE and come on full force .. culminating late January into February. But everyone will tell you ... this weekend is when the germs all get mixed around and it's due to travel. Add to that mess the TSA spreading germs with their blue gloved hands .... YUK!

I have never understood the need some people have to get together with family on this weekend. They drag sick kids to visit the elderly grandparents .. they drag themselves with runny noses into the kitchen to prepare mashed potatoes (sneezing and coughing the whole time) ... they go though germ infested airports and bus stations ... they lie and say their kid feels fine come on over for a visit when in reality the kid is running a 103 temp (we've had that happen to us!
) .... all so they can sit at the same table with people they argue with during the year and eat a freak'n turkey.

Very strange.

For example, here's a standard set of instructions on how to avoid catching the 'flu.

Preventing Flu Spread via Personal Contact
Human beings for the most part enjoy social and personal contact. Hugs, handshakes, kisses, touches are displays of affection and modes of social interaction. During flu season, some people fear this and reduce such contact to a minimum. Since most flu is mild and short lasting, others consider this too drastic, a "cure worse than the disease."

Still, it's prudent to reduce the possible impact of personal contact, and the main method is hand cleansing, either with soap and warm water or an alcohol gel or other antiviral substance.

Wash hands before:

handling or eating food, or feeding others
brushing or flossing teeth
inserting or removing contact lenses
treating wounds or cuts

Wash hands after:
having contact with a person who has flu, or anything in their immediate environment
going to the toilet or helping a dependent at the toilet
changing a diaper
blowing the nose or wiping a child's nose
coughing or sneezing
handling garbage
handling items shared with others (toys, common equipment etc.)
treating wounds or cuts
Detailed instructions for washing hands are widely available on health sites such as Health Canada or the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Flu Prevention via Infected Surfaces
According to the CDC, "influenza virus can survive on environmental surfaces and can infect a person for 2 to 8 hours after being deposited on the surface." (CDC, 2009 H1N1 Flu ("Swine Flu") and You, November 3, 2009). The CDC recommends the following:

Keep surfaces (especially bedside tables, surfaces in the bathroom, kitchen counters and toys for children) clean by wiping them down with a household disinfectant according to directions on the product label.
Linens, eating utensils, and dishes belonging to those who are sick do not need to be cleaned separately, but importantly, these items should not be shared without washing thoroughly first.

Linens (such as bed sheets and towels) should be washed by using household laundry soap and tumbled dry on a hot setting. Individuals should avoid "hugging" laundry prior to washing it to prevent contaminating themselves. Individuals should wash their hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub immediately after handling dirty laundry.

Eating utensils should be washed either in a dishwasher or by hand with water and soap.
It is not listed on the CDC site, but some health authorities recommend using a tissue on the towel dispenser or to turn on and off the tap in a public restroom.

Make Flu Prevention an Annual Event
Every year, the flu season rolls around. Reduce the chances of catching it by practicing common personal and home hygiene. Show good respiratory etiquette by covering coughs. Reduce the risk of transmission by personal contact with frequent hand washing. Reduce the risk of transmission by cleaning possibly infected surfaces.

End of snip.

Then, of course, more worrying still is the possibility of MRSA transmission.

If you opt for the pat down, it is imerative to insist that a TSA agent washes their hands and puts on a clean pair of gloves before touching you. If they touch their nose, eye, etc, after putting on the clean gloves they should remove them and put on another clean pair. The same should apply if they are going to rummage through your bag to check your personal belongings. This is just standard, basic hygiene which everyone has the right to insist on.

The whole establishment is the greatest threat to public (mental) health right now. From where I sit they are all aboard the runaway paranoia train of paranoia and fear. The media just GOBELLS (See: SS) it up.
