    Here's the attitude that makes the TSA an EPIC FAIL:

    This :vomit:pOS actually has the nerve to usurp the words used by a citizen-hero to initiate his gang's daily abuse of other citizen-heroes.

    OT: I was thinking about Todd Beamer yesterday. Absolutely no mention was made of him yesterday in any of the media I read/watched. Nor was there mention of his wife or the NP she started.

    This was what we were before the Unpatriot Act, DHS and the TSA. We had integrity. We had strength of character and purpose. We were a force to be reckoned with. Read it and weep:

    Now we let children be irradiated and sexually assaulted by Federal thugs. We meekly follow 2-3 thugs away from the safety of our fellow citizens into isolated rooms, where we submit to having our sexual organs repeatedly pawed. We allow ourselves to be demeaned, stolen from, lied to and unlawfully detained, and we permit it to happen to our fellow citizens right before our very eyes. We gaze at the floor, shuffle forward and pray: "Please God, please - not me today. Don't let it be me."

    I'd like to know what gangs of federal thugs juggling the testicles of the Todd Beamers of America has to do with Transportation Security Administration.

    Note also the use of the term "front lines", as if they personally were in danger.

    This is what has happened to America. We're now cowards and weak.

    And those of us who dare stand up for our rights are now "Domestic Terrorists."

    I get chastised (and worse) all over the blabbosphere when I use the word "sheeple," or when I use neutral, anatomically correct language to describe what the TSA is doing, or when I point out the complicity of millions of Americans. Yeah, I'm the freak.

    TSA is on the front lines of terrorism alright. They are on the side of those who wish us harm.

    They are the face of terrorism as they are a terror to all that is a non threat in this country.

    Front lines my (expletive deleted), more like so far removed from its not funny, more like way behind the rear echlon as the janitors are closer to the front lines then the smurf wanna bees are.

    Using correct language to describe what is going on in my humble opinion is the way to go. I get my testicles touched to fly. I have no body part named "resistance". It is what it is. If people are offended by my description, it is likely because they have not flown enough to get the full TSA experience. I really think some folks just think we are making this stuff up.

    Yes, when I first started complaining about this back after TSA came into existence I was told:

    It can't be as bad as you make it out to be.
    You are misinterpreting what is going on.
    You are lying.
    You are wrong.
    Remember 9/11.
    No, way is it that bad. If it were the news would be covering it.

    Now others who aren't flying as much as I do are coming to the realization that it is worse than I made it out to be and that I was right from the beginning and that the news is now covering it.

    It's also straight-up denial. Of the Orwellian kind, I mean. Deny enough, over and over and over and over, and you come to believe your own (expletive deleted). Like repeating the same lie over and over and over and over. It becomes, to many minds, the truth. This is also why I fight it so strongly. I'm not going to let people get away with this. I'm going to, to use an indelicate turn of phrase, shove their complicity in their faces.
