    This could just as easily go in the Aviation forum because the TSA figures prominently in it.

    A good read and it draws some parallels between TSA gropedowns, NDAA, the strip-search ruling and the Secret Service protest bill, and likens them to other historical instances of governments using sexual assault to cow their populations into compliance.

    And now it's happening right here, in the land of the allegedly-free.

    I do not love America. (It's still legal to say that, right?)
