  1. The TSA needs to be defunded. I would like to see Sen. Paul call for hearings and berate the Hell out of the TSA director. I would like to see the TSA directoor squiirm in his seat, and I would like to see him get angry at the questions; I would like to see a heated exhancge between the TSA and Republican members of the Senate and House. If he is pissed off enough, if he doesn’t want annmoore anger filled hearings with members of congress, he might order new procedures dealing with young chilldren and the aged and elderly. To grope a child is really bad;

    Defund TSA. Let every airline be resopinsible for security, and not waste tax payer money. We coulc have really good security by having all air carriers operating in the US contract with El Al Airlines of Israel Air Line to conduct our airport security trajning. Each airline should be responsible for it’s own. They should send their people to Israel for extensive training, and have their people wotk with El Al doing security in Israel.

    El Al has lots of experience and they don’t grope young children and the aged. They have a really good system abd it works.

  2. “Is this the administration’s way of convincing Americans to shut up and accept the physical intrusion on their person? Is this what our founders – or any reasonable, rational human being – considers ‘freedom’?” (Parsons)

    Imagine, if during the revolutionary war, the war of 1812, or the civil war (when the enemy looked like us, and the war was on our soil) if the “Lincoln DHS” started lining up all U.S. citizens at sea-ports, patting down everyone prior to boarding or debarking a ship, checking for illegal contraband, creating a “no-sail” list, and performing intrusive body cavity searches, all because the “enemy” could infiltrate our lines and conduct unlimited mayhem.

    That didn’t happen. Why? Because Lincoln had the wisdom to suspend 4th amendment rights on “pro-confederate” activists. Somewhere along the line, this country became REALLY stupid, and in their infinite foolishness, thought it better to offend us all, suspend 4th amendment rights for all, rather than hurt the feelings of a profiled suspect.

    If this isn’t insanity, I don’t know what is.
