It is only a matter of time before a TSA drone is cold-cocked.

It has already been too long.

I can't believe someone didn't already post this:


Which leads me to this blog posting showing a TSA monitor with that image & a discussion over its authenticity:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/mgrdcm/3304306634/ (read the comment)
So, whadda ya'll think?



I think this has become appropriate for TSA:

Semi-NSFW (People down to their undies) - Germans Protesting Body Scanners
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EqBcNHX_To

Man opts out of Body Scanner and tells TSA agent "If you touch my junk, I will have you arrested"  Guy not allowed to go past security and possible fine of $10,000.  Obviously there is more to the story.

It is much more powerful to seek Truth for one's self.  Seeing and hearing that others seem to have found it can be a motivation.  With me, I was drawn because of much error and bad judgment on my part.

If it were reasonable to grab genitals, it would make sense to grab everyone's genitals. Just because it looks like a nun and walks like a nun doesn't mean it's a nun.

Of course, that "if" is the important part. It's far from reasonable.

More on "don't touch my junk" dude.

http://www.cnn.com/2010/TRAVEL/11/15/california.airport.security/index.html?hpt=T2

So now everyone gets to either go through the x-ray scanners or get felt up before being allowed through Hmm, I think I may have misread the first sentence, my prior statement redacted unless proven otherwise. Then there is this little tidbit from the 9th Circus Circuit: In the event you do not wish to be viewed nude or groped you do not have the option to just leave.

Quote from: 9th Circuit
"requiring that a potential passenger be allowed to revoke consent to an ongoing airport security search makes little sense in a post-9/11 world. Such a rule would afford terrorists multiple opportunities to attempt to penetrate airport security by 'electing not to fly' on the cusp of detection until a vulnerable portal is found."

The 9th Circus ruling has me completely outraged.  Stark.  Raving.  Mad.  Outraged.

I hereby declare war against the Airline Industry until this is resolved... and resolved in favor of Liberty and Sensibility.

Shifty Arabs are the problem.  Period.  End of sentence.

My truck is nearly paid off, my school loans are nearly paid off, and my plastic is nearly paid off.  By this spring, I'm going to be in a WONDERFUL financial position to start truly experiencing the rewards of my income and the things life has to offer.  I was considering some travel with the freed-up income.  NY, MA, DC, UK, Italy.

Eff that.

I'm learning to fly.  I'm not letting the bovine government lock me to the ground, and I'm not putting up with the TSA bull.  I WILL assert my freedom.

Don't they compel private pilots with their own private planes/helicopters to comply with that same bullshit short of using only very small privately owned air fields?

I've got a couple pilot friends that puddle-jump all over to regional airports with no rectal probing.

They get into some pretty big airparks.  Scottsdale's Falcon Field can land some pretty big jets, and Williams-Gateway in Mesa has landed AF1 a few times, and used to be an Air Force base.  No rectal probe.

Not yet.  You can go access many private hangers at most airports without passing through any sort of security.

If the non-existent security at charter/private hangars proves what we've got now is security theater, I don't know what does.

Not that I'm not glad the private side still has some breathing room.

I'm still not sure how half of the TSA folks I see could pass a security clearance of any kind.

Not yet. if you visit a controlled airport, you must either have a ramp pass or be escorted by someone with one.

I say "yet" because TSA is desperate to regulate GA, of course.


Until then, I get to fly with an M4 clone and my M&P, heh...

This.

Heck, last month we were pulling out a Lear 60 when the pilot comes bounding over to me exclaiming, "Look at THIS!!!" while the co-pilot lugged out of the back of his truck (parked in-hangar) his brand new Barrett M82A1.  Suckers are heavy.  grin
