So I saw. But now it's been removed. At least it's not showing up on my screen anymore.
I just came back to say the same thing. Wonder what is going on?
Can't have any desenting opinions that lay doubt to the Transportation Stasi Administration!
It's pretty pathetic that they're censoring comments. I hope some of you will go over there and try to post. Let's see if any of them show up.
For the record, here's what I posted, which appeared for a few minutes, then disappeared:
In other words, let's ramp up the fear factor! Nothing works like hysteria and paranoia to make the masses easier to control -- and to make money for the so-called security industry.
And no, National Opt-Out Day last year didn’t fizzle. Many of the strip-search scanners were simply turned off, passengers ushered through the ordinary (and entirely sufficient) metal detectors.
John Pistole has set the tone for his criminal, abusive agency. But millions of Americans aren’t buying what he’s selling.
I, too, posted but it hasn't seen the light of day. Perhaps someone should post something in praise of Pissy and his fiefdom to see if that makes it through the sensors.
He's ramping up the fear factor because that's all he has. He's being attacked on all sides. He has to shore up support somehow.
Except that even if you're a trusted traveler, Pistole has said that it doesn't guarantee that you won't periodically be groped (well, he didn't say 'groped', he said pat down). Once people realize they've been duped, and had to pay for the privilege, we'll see where his support goes.
You may be right though about an attack or attempted attack. Although, DHS/TSA may have cried wolf one too many times.
Sorry to be so technical, but yuck.
not showing up in the comments, alas. care to repost here?
nachtnebel, I did -- see above.
Thanks for the link and great comment on this Lisa. The other three comments were negative as well and I chipped in my two cents worth.
I try to comment at outlets that reach Federal workers hoping to demoralize the few TSA workers who can read. There are several like GSN, as well as the DC area outlets, WaPo and Wash Times, that are read by most in DC.
Whoa, my comment showed up again! Amazing.
