they will be back on monday




But why? If they arent considered imperative on one of the busiest travel day of the year, why do we need them at all?

Now, let's see if people believe in their rights 365 days a year and not just for a national boycott day..

This obviously shows that the establishment is scared of an intelligent and question-asking populace. Keep it up on all fronts. It's time we started putting our chess pieces in place.


" everyday is opt out day?"

Who the crap is that? al-ciada?

You haven't heard that expression before? Al-CIAda is a nick name for Al-Qaeda, based on the past history of the CIA training the mojahedin fighters that later (and the database of names kept on them, called Al-Qaeda) became the terrorists we now fight.

. You know, don't feel bad. The first two times I read it it didn't make sense to me either, I was like Al who? It didn't hit me until I spelled it out in my head trying to figure out how to pronounce it!

I hope they STAY OFF!

No need to waste energy on x-ray machines that only detects non-explosives.

Not everyday being an "opt out" day, but where people stop staying subservient to these injustices everyday and not just on this day. I never want to see the, "The government did what?! They cannot do that, it goes against the Constitution!" Then a couple months later people are okay with the new government regulations.

It's now or never.. How do we expect to win a war against these elitists and government pawns if we cannot even win this battle? We've shown that we can stop them in their tracks for at least a day, well take it over to tomorrow, and the next day. All I'm saying is, keep it going. The more you stand up against these atrocities, the more others will stand along side you.

If they've turned off the radiation-machines wouldn't that imply the body searches will go full-force on everyone now.....children, infants and grandmothers?

Got a call a while ago from a friend that went through security at SFO (San Francisco) and she told me that they used the body scanner on one person and the rest went through the regular metal detector and no one got pat down. This was at about 3:30 this afternoon PST and there was about 30-40 people in line.

I have a sister flying this thanksgiving. I spoke to her today about how security was, did she get scanned or "Enhanced Searched." She told me that no, she did not go through one of the scanners but just a normal metal detector. She did not get searched. Her husband, however did get a pat down. But he is a diabetic and had some sort of medical reason for being taken aside. The flew from Madison, Wisconsin to Ithica, New York. I suppose it is possible those airports just didn't have the machines.

I then heard later that evening on NBC that the wait times were actually MUCH less then expected... So I too wonder if the threat of a public opt out day scared them enough to back down to a lower security level.

Agree 100%.
I believe the"ruckus"had influence: I also believe TPTB are crafty buggers; are patient; and play 3dimensional chess.The old "patriot": materials speeches; pamphlets books and vhs tapesfrom the 90's talked about "blue helmets" ( u.n.); foreign troops and the ultimate bad guys the "FINCEN" forces.

A at the time I could never figure that one out fin= finland?" Now I can see Fin cen:"Financial central" ( world bank)???? too many dots line up for me not to be"reactionary"( as I was called in another thread some where else tonight)and get worked up over each false step as it becomes obvious. we are already hearing Ms napolitano talking about"security " for trains busses; malls; and sporting events. There are fairly new gates( like train crossing gates) installed on some interstate on ramps around here.I live outside a podunk town of less than 40,000 the local state police barracks falls out to the asphalt helicopter pads some past summer mornings in full stormtrooper riot gear; shields;and batons form a line abreast on the open asphalt pad and practices advancing and wheeling formations.Yeah I'm a bit concerned.

Okay- this worries me. It's not strange for them to just shut down all the measures??

This seems fishy. So they have very little support for the added security, and turn them off. What if they are setting up a false flag to increase support? Like, a plane gets shot down but it's blamed on 'terrorists', the TSA says "I told you so" and suddenly nobody's complaining anymore. Sound familiar?

I didn't know either, so I looked it up.

whinge (hwnj, wnj)

To complain or protest, especially in an annoying or persistent manner.
[Dialectal alteration of Middle English whinsen, from Old English hwinsian.]
whinger n.
whinging·ly adv.

whinge [wɪndʒ] Informal
vb whinges, whingeing, whinged (intr)
1. to cry in a fretful way
2. to complain
n
a complaint
[from a Northern variant of Old English hwinsian to whine; related to Old High German winsan, winisan, whence Middle High German winsen]
whingeing n & adj
whinger n

whinge (Informal)
verb
complain, moan, grumble, grouse, gripe (informal), beef (slang), carp, bleat, grizzle (informal, chiefly Brit.), grouch (informal), bellyache (slang), kvetch (U.S. slang) people who whinge about their alleged misfortunes

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The TSA will most likely go back to scan or grope Monday. It's really sickening to me that they are playing these silly games. Guess they were preparing for local news teams to be out filming their actions all over the nation and wanted to keep the controversy down.

They turned off the machines for the one day to avoid bad publicity with due to the protest. Now, they'll have a bunch of soundbytes from people saying TSA was great and very quick.

The machines will be back on tomorrow when the media is paying attention again.

Like Denzel said in Training Day..This is chess, not checkers.

Because it is chess they made the best move they could..to win the game..not just win this confrontation.

Even though it is victory by temporary concession..it is still a victory. Don't let anyone convince you that it is not a victory for those that oppose tyranny. (unless of course they launch a false flag and by Monday the people are begging to be fingered and fondled).

We are in a position to take a pawn..will we?

I hope.

Peace

Just wait...after the holiday they'll have them running full bore again. All these scanners represent is more CONTROL of the masses. TSA has NEVER arrested a potential terrorist. Who do we have to thank for all this BS...none other than Obama as that's where it all originated.
