Stop the terror by all means, but dont terrorize the people you are trying to save from terror.... right?

How do you do that without being proactive?
Maybe we could send the Taliban a cease and desist letter?

There are enough frightening developments in the USA of late to make me think that the NWO is genuinely moving into its final phase.

What give you this idea?
Congress is in gridlock. They can't agree on toilet paper let alone who should control what.
WHat happened to the gun control push? Fizzle
Washington is pushing financial responsibility back onto the states.
Do you think Montana wants the same laws as New York?

We were closer to a NWO during WW2 than we are now.

Congress reminds me more and more of the UN. Just another political machine that has failed and outlived it's usefulness.

The US Supreme Court disagrees with you and since im not ready to completely trash our entire government setup we need to work with what we have. People need to quit being lazy and actually participate in the system instead of just bitching while doing nothing else.

The TSA has always been involved in more than just Airlines. The problem, well part of it, is the apathy of the people to keep tabs on them. The Vipr units and the TSA expanding beyond airport security is not new and has been around for some time now.

That's the problem... You guys act like this all just occurred under your noses...

In fact it occurred when the TSA was created.... The problem then, as it is now, are people s apathy when it comes to paying attention and then doing something beyond just bitching.

Which is all I see people on here do...

Have you contacted your reps to be heard?
Have you contacted the TSA to complain?
Have you researched the TSA charter?

My guess is no...

Anyone else do the above?

Replace Congress with US Citizen and you hit the nail on the head.....

The concept for our Representative Republic required citizen participation as a final check and balance on the 3 branches of government.

People seemed to forget that while bitching can brings issues to light, one must do more than just that to effect change.

If this isn’t stopped now, TSA will soon be going home to home searching everyone and their vehicles.

And if they didn't search her the Taliban would use old ladies with bombs under their clothes, in wheel chairs.
If you consistantly fail to search a certain group of passengers bad guys will make use of it.

Get over it.

Bullet proof vests are just a guarantee of acquiring a head shot in any kind of gun battle. Pretty much a death sentence for the armor wearer. Did they learn nothing in Nam?

Bullet proof vests were never meant to be protection against marksmen capable of hitting a target as small as the head.

It was meant to be protection against the average shooter who aims at the head but is lucky to get within two feet.

Its funny over here in the UK our airport security do a pretty good job without brutaly searching people and conducting themselfs in a rude and unproffesional manner.

If the UK can do it then Im sure the USA can

Rude and unprofessional is what we are all about.

Besides it's payback for all those times they didn't tip a waitress.

VIPR operations promote confidence in and protect our nation’s transportation systems through targeted deployment of integrated TSA assets utilizing screening and law enforcement capabilities in coordinated activities to augment security of any mode of transportation.



TSA’s VIPR teams provide a full range of law enforcement and security capability; the exact makeup of VIPR teams is determined jointly with local authorities and can include Federal Air Marshals(FAMs), Transportation Security Officers (TSOs), Behavior Detection Officers (BDOs), TSA certified explosive detection canine teams, Transportation Security Inspectors (TSIs), Transportation Security Specialists – Explosives (TSSEs), explosives operational support, security and explosive screening technology, radiological/nuclear detection, and local law enforcement officers.


TSA

Most TSA personnel are non law enforcement and the few that are have very restricted scope and authority.

Most people don't realize this so the Intimidation Factor remains.

First off, I am not "Bad word here". It was a bit of humor in all actuality. I just don't always remember to apply smilies. I was kind of making fun of the thread in all reality. I of all people do not need lessons from you on being a active participant in my own nation and it's already implemented system of checks and balances on making my voice heard. My congressmen and senators know me on a first name bases to be a matter of fact.

Generally I respect you on all matters of content that you respond to but you seem to take most of this thread far too seriously.

That's a false extrapolation. Different cases.

By the way, what "Taliban ... old ladies with bombs under their clothes" were you referring to? Those equipped by the CIA ...?

As a real police officer I can say im not being replaced. The TSA is not commissioned law enforcement and their vipr teams cannot enforce state law. They can inspect interstate commerce, which is to say they can only stop big rigs and nothing else.

The first time they do, and if im in the area, a TSA employee will be going to jail for impersonating a police officer to start.
