    How TSA’s Groping Softened Us Up for NSA’s Snooping

    Dark humor alert:
    In a nutshell:
    ...and dammit, I believe he's right:vomit:

    PS: My only quarrel with the gent is that as you all know, I hate the terms "right to privacy" or "privacy rights." I believe the 4th amendment protects so much more than the dignity privacy affords the individual. The 4th amendment is about the security of the individual against unwarranted search and seizure. People do have a fundamental right to control who has access to their bodies, their homes, their effects and their papers, (now also their electronic data & devices.) That's so much more important than mere privacy.

    And government is pushing to have data recorders placed in your vehicles. Your every waking movement will be recorded by Big Brother.

    Their prying is costing the taxpayer a fortune, and the power it affords our government will inevitably be abused. Look at the IRS for proof of that claim. If you give people access to such data about their fellow man, they will commit crimes against others.

    What worries me most is the "fusion" concept. The TSA claims it's looking for terrorists, but evidence shows they're really, really excited about looking for drugs. It's a case of government goons who've been granted an inch and taken a mile. It happens every single darn time they're given some new way of imposing their will against citizens. They take the opportunity far beyond its original intent, and we all suffer severe degradation to our quality of life as a result.

    I just sold 2 curriculum sets through an homeschool forum. What if one of those two families is on our goobermint's naughty list? Would that lead some authoritarian goon to rifle through my data with the NSA and find some other innocous contact or pattern in my communications that they imagined to be suspicious or sinester? How many tax dollars will be squandered to investigate the world's most boring middle-aged matron as a possible criminal mastermind?

    I object to all this snooping on practically every level.

    How many government employees do we have whose only function is to degrade the taxpayers' quality of life through 4th amendment violations? How many people are directly or indirectly employed in the domestic snooping industry? How is this productive or wholesome?

    Never Secure Anywhere (NSA) needs to go.
