uh. I guess the SSI thing's not working on Congress, is it? So much for dipsh*t Janet's claim that we've all gotten used to a "real police frisk" at the airport. I'd say not. Let me supply the reason why TSA continues to use the crotch, boob, and butt rubdowns despite it being universally hated: Arrogance (in the words of Pistole, "get used to it or don't fly). We have no need to make sure our procedures are Constitutional. Our googling shyster Francine says its OK. We don't care what you (the American traveling public) think or how you feel about what we do. WE do not respond to YOU. Stupidity (all this effort on non threats, grandmothers, little kids, families, no efforts on below the wing activity with unvetted, unmonitored, unscreened airport vendors and employees) Wickedness. There is a complete absence of moral understanding both at TSA headquarters and in the TSA clerk rank and file of what these procedures do to people, the real nature and consequences of this personal violation without cause--explicitly forbidden under the 4th Amendment, lack of empathy, and so forth. None of these people should ever be allowed into a position of trust ever again. They should be jailed. The bell is tolling for TSA. Yet they continue to insist that everyone just loves them.
