    I think a determined group could overcome TSA's so-called security and attack commercial aviation if they so desired. So why haven't we seen any attempts? Perhaps the targets have changed (if there are any) or other factors are at play.

    I give no credit to anything done by DHS/TSA for this apparent low level of threat.

    In fact I see DHS/TSA as a threat to the United States!

    Welcome Jayve. I'm glad you're here.

    Have you written your representatives in both the state legislature and DC? How about your local government? If you're a resident of Nashville, perhaps you can get an encouraging response from your councilman.

    Local legislators like to be seen as responsive to the concerns of the members of their district. Such people might surprise you with their support.

    All the best,

    Elizabeth

    Welcome Jayve! I'm really sickened about what is happening in this country, and applaud you in your effort against this crap.

    Celtic, thanks for cross-posting my TSA News Blog account at that other place. But this question by a member over there makes no sense -- nowhere did I claim "grapich nudity," not even "nudity":
    Perhaps you can set him/her straight.

    I had to read your post a few times, Lisa, trying to find the words "graphic nudity" but with no luck. Perhaps the poster misinterpreted the word "indecent" to mean "graphic nudity." If so, he/she is as dense as a TSA screener.

    I would ask that any TUGger who is not persona non grata over there reply.

    I would suggest that no TUGger should waste his or her time "over there", unless you enjoy getting abused for expressing facts and honest opinions.

    Erm...wait, what? You mean FT? I didn't post anything over there.

    If it was posted with my account then my account's been hacked.

    If I'm not mistaken, are we talking about the discussion going on over at Facebook where this was also cross posted?

    I believe that poster, who is first of all long winded and way to eager to lick an authoritarian boot, though he says he hates TSA, is referring to the comments on the original video at youtube? I don't have time right now, but I'd need to go over there and re-read what was posted there.

    Ah, okay. I remember that user - I did a couple double-takes of my own when I read their posts, thinking "Why don't I remember typing that?" before double-checking the username.

    The video itself refers to "graphic nudiy" in the captions. That might help to explain their comment. :)

    I just had a chance to look, and the text on the video itself refers to "graphic nudity".

    Some people have a reading comprehension problem and have difficulty expressing the difference between the youtubes and the news blog.

    Welcome Jayve and many thanks for your effort in exposing this abuse.
    This is obviously a blatant invasion of your right to dignity and privacy during screening and, given the location, quite likely a case of racial profiling.
    If you haven’t found Counsel yet I suggest you contact John F. Banzhaf III at Georgetown University and hopefully he can help or direct you to appropriate legal representation.

    Also check the contacts section at the Forum homepage for more contact options including the Rutherford Institute.

    You are among friends here so let us know if we can help with information to support your efforts.

    There is a caption in the beginning of the You Tube video that mentions "graphic nudity".

    In discussion elsewhere it was said that the charges against Jayve were dropped several months ago. Wondering if that is the case?

    And the current contents of that post are????? I gutted it as quickly as I realized what I'd done.

    It's easy to forget where you are & click the reply button, but that's the FIRST time I've screwed up that badly in ELEVEN months, ever since Cholula put Blogger Boob up on a pedestal & said we couldn't criticize the moron.

    It's a hard discipline to maintain, but I'm shooting for 22 months for the next stretch. :)
