    Tenth Amendment Center: TSA – is Groping of the Public in the Constitution?

    Remember the guy in Portland Oregon who went naked at the TSA checkpoint to protest the federal frisking policy?

    I see he has been fined $1,000. And get this: the TSA said they fined him for breaking their rules. THEIR rules? Apparently they have a series of rules that We the People must follow: “no person may interfere with, assault, threaten, or intimidate screening personnel in the performance of their screening duties.” (What was a naked man threatening them with, one must wonder. But I digress.)
    And now for some humor. The TSA representative said “All of TSA’s policies and procedures comport with the law and the Constitution.”

    I have my Constitution out. I don’t see any delegated power indicating the feds may fondle people for simply wanting to travel ...

    I would think any TSA employee is intimidated when they have to deal with people with brains.

    You could just as easily substitute "morals," "ethics," "money," "real jobs," or anything else the TSA employees are lacking entirely.

    When one group (TSA) is so completely devoid of anything of note the descriptions can be quite difficult.

    There is just nothing positive about TSA.

    Well, the sheer idiocy of the entire agency is noteworthy.

    I can think of just one - their bright blue uniforms make it easy to figure out who not to trust at the airport.

    I really have to get back to work on "Give Me The Brain: TSA Edition". At least I now can have a pressure cooker card.
