    Or trying get the FBI to rehire the biggest father-raper of them all (with all due respect to Arlo).

    TSA = group "W" bench? :D

    Probably, as TSA has demonstrated a complete lack of morals.

    With any luck, he's busy playing russian roulette with his service revolver.

    Perhaps he will use typical TSA skills and load 5 rounds.

    Or hope that he's using the standard-issue DHS sidearm - the .40 S&W.

    It'd be just like a TSA employee to play Russian Roulette with a SIG-Sauer P229.

    During my years in the military if a command ever had a member of congress on board or we were providing transportation the MOC was treated with with respect and the command bent over backwards to make sure the visit was more than pleasant for our guest.

    Now TSA on the other hand seems to not understand that these people not only write the bills that make their very existence possible but also pass budgets that continue their reign of terror. For the life of me I can't fathom TSA's stupidity towards powerful members of government.

    Just remember that you're trying to understand the motivations of people who take money to grope children and the elderly knowing full well that they're not doing anything productive, and all will be clear.

    Examiner: TSA aggressively pats down Republican Congressman

    The more public an event like this receives, the more people will realize they can stand up against these assaults.

    What I find interesting is that Conseco moved like a martial artist with countless hours on the mat. If you analyze his actual physical movement, you'll note that what he actually did was to step backward on his left leg and sweep his right arm down to prevent the groper's hand from following his private parts on their journey backward.

    The groper WAS DEFINITELY NOT "assaulted" by Conseco in any manner whatsoever. Conseco's behavior was ENTIRELY DEFENSIVE. Frankly, most people aren't able to be that gentle or smooth when defending themselves. Most people are so startled and confused by an assault that they flail about and strike their assailant sharply. Conseco was quite composed.

    From recent articles I've noticed that the police state really doesn't like the martial arts. I suspect what they like least about martial artists is that a well trained person can defend him or her self in ways that make it hard for the police state to make a case against them. Conseco did exactly that.

    Spot on, then the other one is that most that study the martial arts is that they only use enough force/energy and not overkill it, like wannabe's who wind up in deep :trash:.

    I wonder if our favorite (sic :td:) SAT"take my ball and go home" TSO was involved in this.

    great observation Elizabeth. I hadn't noticed that. A more advanced student might have followed up with a two finger eye strike. :)

    Given the stance from drawing the leg back, a knee might have been more appropriate - and well-placed, too...
