    Numbers are growing in opposition to the TSA. So suck it TSA!

    "If the thought of traveling during the Christmas holidays makes you ill, you're in good company. A new travel industry survey finds that 39 percent would rather take the bus than fly.
    Irked by new travel security requirements, higher traffic and the clutter of presents, many air travelers express frustration about flying..."

    Supposedly children under 12 no longer have to get groped. If they alarm something, they can go through the scanner -- again -- and again -- and again -- hey, no problem with radiation! -- and then, as Pissy has said, "we will work with the parents to try to resolve the alarm."

    Bottom line -- if they claim they have to grope a child, they still will.

    And this, pardon my French, is a (expletive deleted) lie:

    This is a the fourth time they've said this dating back to November 2010. Even Napolitano said they were changing the policy for children in October. Though fewer videos are showing up at Youtube, there is no indication that this has actaully happened.

    Yes, and you and I are getting calluses on our typing fingers from pointing it out, Bill! But the TSA lies as easily as its minions breathe, and there's no shortage of credulous cretins in this country, so it looks like those calluses will build up many more layers before this is all over.

    Not only will they NEVER separate kids from their parents, Lisa, but NEVER EVER! NEVER EVER!

    why bother to lie like this when it's so easy to see the contrary? The same sad useless propaganda. Everything is just fine. House sales will recover next year (mumble mumble except for the 4 million expected new foreclosure homes being dumped on the market which will hammer sales prices mumble mumble) Except when the truth slips out now and again, per christine lagarde president of the IMF

    and so with the TSA, lie after lie. The same sad screw ups because the agency is run by a major incompetent with a malicious streak and staffed by personnel with no morals and poor intelligence.
    So the lies will continue, the gropes will continue, the strip searches, and new ways to invade the persons of travelers will continue. An attempt will be made to spread out to other modes of transportation. They will be doing the same things right up to the end. And make no mistake, it is coming faster than folks think. Not ten years from now, but within 3 or less. 2012 looks to be a watershed....

    and air traffic continues to plummet. The bloom is off that rose.

    All of my friends and family in Europe no longer visit the States on holiday; they go elsewhere due the hassles of dealing with Customs and the TSA. Looking at lost travel revenue from Americans is only part of the story.

    I think you are mistaken. Breathing takes just a tiny bit of effort.

    Lying for TSA types is effortless.
