Truly Suspicious Behavior, as Opposed to Actions that Distress TSA Goons

    If someone was willing to remain stoic while their genitals were repeatedly manhandled to the point of pain, just to get on an aircraft without further examination, wouldn't that suggest this person was more likely to be carrying contraband than someone who objected to the assault?

    Ditto for people who will permit their children to be terrorized or sexually assaulted, their private property confiscated (stolen actually), and generally submit without question to unconstitutional abuse from federal employees?

    Doesn't common sense suggest that the passenger behavior the TSA demands is the most suspicious behavior, and the behavior the TSA condemns is near proof positive the passenger in question has nothing to hide?

    Where's the common sense here?

    As has been stated many, many times before: scope n' grope cannot possibly be about security, because it runs directly counter to security. Whatever the TSA's true agenda is, that agenda has absolutely no relationship to Transportation Security.

    I don't know if TSA has some super secret sinister agenda, though TBH it wouldn't surprise me. It's along the lines of another discussion we recently had where inertia creates evil. It's not the intent, but it's there.

    TSA is about compliance. So long as you go along with whatever scheme they've got going, you're cool. They'll give you a pass, and less scrutiny.

    This is where they are so (expletive deleted) stoopit. Any terrorist would know that. Play the games, play right along into their hands. Put a half-empty water bottle in your bag next to your bomb. Time and time again TSA has proven that its slack-jawed knuckle draggers are distracted by shiny things and miss the dangerous items. Go through the scanner. Tell the morons at the checkpoint how grateful you are that they keep you safe.

    These people are so very, very stupid they will allow a terrorist with a bomb through doing something like this. It'd be funny if it weren't so sad.

    TSA screening procedures will not keep any kind of contraband off an airplane. The odds of any one person boarding any airplane on any given day of being a terrorist is so low that the whole TSA screening effort is a total waste of manpower and effort. Besides, we have enough evidence to demonstrate that any real chance of introducing contraband will be at the hands of TSA employees themselves, or others with the ability to bypass TSA's weak security.

    The airlines face a greater direct threat from TSA, not from the airlines customers.

    I think I don't have the 'compliance' gene. ;)

    I think this is all true. It's more than just sad. It's un-American. McCarthy would be proud. "Do as we say or we'll put you on a watch list. Stand aside as we molest your loved ones otherwise we'll have you arrested." It's really an abomination.

    I'll be thinking about this as I drive for nine hours today to get back home (did 5 hours yesterday afternoon). Could have flown except I just don't have that 'compliance' gene.

    Oh well. I'll just pop in some Type O Negative, God Module, and Combichrist and I'll be fine. :)

    The airlines have lost another customer - my chiropractor. Every time she flies she's chosen for additional security. Hadn't flown in two years but finally knuckled under from pressure from her family to visit them in Florida. This time she was groped both going and coming back. Why? Not a clue. One time she was asked about her "nationality". She's a little bit of a woman maybe not quite 5 feet tall, olive complexion, black hair, maybe 100 pounds. If she's being profiled because of how she looks it's a mystery to me because she certainly doesn't look like what I would consider "foreign" - but wait, the TSA doesn't profile does it...... In any event she's done flying the "friendly skies". Many thanks to those of you who participated in a previous discussion about how women can dress in order to provide some protection during the TSA's sexual assault as my chiropractor took advantage of that knowledge before going on her trip. And do the airlines care they've lost another customer? Nah.

    I think before it is over the airline executives will have a meeting among themselves and ask where their customers disappeared to.

    They will only need to look to themselves to find the answer to that question.

    Any dark-haired, olive-skinned person (such as me) is a potential AY-rab and therefore a potential terrorist to these morons. Either that, or they think they're going to catch an illegal alien.

    P.S. Any further details you wish to give so I can put her story into the Master List?

    I think the whole aviation industry will have to come crashing down before they get it.

    I asked for details but I think she wasn't ready to elaborate at this time. Maybe too soon - I'll see her in another 2 weeks and try again. She did say from now on she'd pay for her family to come visit her - she's done flying.

    I would only need airport, date, approximate time. That's all. Not her real name (am assuming she won't give, since most people won't, though some obviously do). And she doesn't have to give strict anatomical details if she doesn't want to. We all know what's going on.
