    New post up at TSA Blog.

    TSA is still sorry the lady didn't like being Strip Searched plus more spin.

    lying sack of pig excrement. "TSA agents do not ask you to remove clothing" except when they do, in a secluded private area. "There was miscomunication" about a back brace---means they didn't listen and didn't care.

    Bob, if you don't admit you have a problem, you cannot fix it. Therefore, these types of dust-ups are going to continue forever, which is a huge PR black eye for you folks. I do appreciate the help this gives our cause though.

    I heard something on the CBS network news about 90 minutes ago, just caught the end of it, and figured that's what happened.

    Lying bastards.

    I wonder how many Bloghdad Bobs are over here reading these threads regularly, keeping an eye on us? Lots, I'm sure. Our tax dollars at work, yet again. Paying for these lying s.o.b.s to keep track of us potential "domestic extremists." I hope I never have the misfortune of meeting a smurf at a cocktail party or something. I'll be damned if I shake his/her hand and make small talk.

    Oh, and I hope you guys are leaving comments at Propaganda Central. I stopped trying months ago because the Bloghdad Bobs kept censoring my comments. Lots of "Anonymous" are allowed to leave comments, but not someone who uses her real name. There's transparency for you.

    I think they've long since reached the point where only they believe themselves -- nobody else gives them any credibility.

    As far as the Blogdad Bobs watching us -- they stick out like sore thumbs. We're watching them watch us. There actually appears to be a major effort to feed us some disinformation, but people aren't buying it. :)

    It is funny, though, how they keep spinning, spinning, spinning. They're shameless. Black is white and up is down, and they just keep repeating the same lies, over and over and over again.

    Unfortunately, many people -- including our gutless wonders in the media -- are buying their lies. You see it in reader comments at newspaper sites, in editorials, in op-eds. And the number of people saying "it's no big deal" that those old women were strip-searched -- it boggles the mind.

    Looking at Google Analytics for this site must be fun. :D

    Another article at the Washington Examiner. Luckily, at that site (unlike, say, the Atlanta Journal Constitution), people aren't buying what (expletive deleted) Bob is selling.

    But it's breathtaking the crap he's spewing. I hadn't read his excuses at Propaganda Central. Now I see the story he's putting out there. A money belt?? Unbelievable.

    TSA thought woman's back brace was a moneybelt

    And even if it had been a flipping money belt, it's none of their damn business!

    Can you ID those who are working a false flag mission? I would suggest every time you notice such poster than you expose them in open forum.

    I think it is quiet noticeable that the tide is turning and the TSA lies are being seen for what they are. Even some of the politicians are starting to catch on.

    As for the comments at that Washington Examiner article, best one so far, by "Gaframer":

    Piece of cake. Have they never hear of cloaking devices? Alter the phase shift of your matter by the right amount & you could pass through another object, although invisibility is the normal benefit. I saw it on Star Trek so I know it's true.

    This is a topic that comes up periodically between me and my s.o.. I'm all for public shunning, pointedly asking uncomfortable questions when coming face to face with a smurf (in a social situation), and calling them smurfs (to their faces). My s.o. thinks this is wildly inappropriate - especially calling them smurfs. I see it more as counteracting the pro-TSA propaganda they all hear at work.

    I tend to be fairly polite and have good working relationships with people from all over the political spectrum, but I draw the line at the TSA. I consider them to be destructively un-American and regard it as my civic duty to point this out to them.

    Unbelievable. Un...FREAKING...believable. They thought it was a money belt? Come ON! How can they put that bull:poop: out there and expect anyone to believe that? :td: THAT'S what my tax dollars are paying for? Blatant, bald-faced LIES posted on the internet by a government agency? Sick. Just sick.


    I SO can't wait to get the (expletive deleted) out of this country.

    You know I was trying to determine exactly how I feel about TSA screeners. The thought came to mind that we have hookers in every state but some of the hookers in Nevada are actually working within the confines of the law.

    Still, at the end of the day they are all still hookers.

    Sunny Goth, in my younger days, when I was less confident and more conventionally "polite," I never, ever would've confronted someone like this. I would've been "nice" and even have tried to engage the person in a respectful discussion. But now, thank god, I'm older, more confident, and unwilling to put up with (expletive deleted).

    I refuse to accord the minions of a criminal agency any respect. I refuse to treat them as if they're "ordinary people just trying to do their jobs."

    No. They are, if not outright criminals themselves, aiding and abetting the abusive, criminal actions of their employer. I'm not making nice with them.

    Obviously, I wouldn't make a scene. Especially at a friend's house. But I would quietly refuse to shake the person's hand, succinctly say why ("I'm sorry, I won't shake the hand of someone who works for that abusive agency"), and walk away. I would expect that to be the end of it. If, however, they tried to talk to me again, or made a wisecrack, I would quietly let them have it. I'm not going to stand around listening to someone joke about sexual and other assault.

    I just had a conversation about this with the owner of our local grocery store. He's a man I know and like, but he was clueless about the TSA. He made a crack the other day, and I let him have it. He didn't believe me, trotting out the trusty, "I've flown many times, and I've never seen anything like that." So I said give me your email address and I'll send you my documentation. He did, I did, and now he's on our side.

    I agree. I'm sure there are some good people working for the TSA (law of large numbers and all), and maybe some of them feel they can change the agency from the inside....but even if that's true, I'm still not going to give them a pass on the 'hey, I'm just trying to get by' argument.

    Oh, me either!! The route that you describe is what I'd do too.

    That's generally what I do too. A lot of people just aren't aware, and I'll try to engage those folks first before I let them have it with both barrels.

    My tolerance level for all things TSA is roughly zero though, so my fuse is a bit shorter these days. :)
