Australian Government: “No Porno Scan, No Fly”

Saturday, February 4, 2012
Posted in category Security State

Joe from Australia writes to say that his government is following in the footsteps of the TSA, only he thinks that the folks in his country are far less prone to dissent than Americans. That’s hard to believe, I know, but I have a couple of Australian friends, and they reinforce that notion. All aviation passengers in Australia may soon lose the ability to choose the option of a cop-a-feel pat down in place of a radiation porn scan because government officials think the porn scanners give the sheeple “peace of mind.” From the article in the Herald Sun:

The proposed Aviation Security Amendment (Screening) Bill 2012 will make it mandatory for any passenger selected to participate to have a body scan.

The “no scan, no fly” amendment closes a loophole in the legislation that lets passengers request a pat-down instead of passing through a metal detector.

Transport Minister Anthony Albanese said mandatory body scans were necessary to ensure the safety of airports.

    Bring trains back. The airlines should have total (private) responsibility for safety, whatever that takes. 1. Who rides, pays (for it). 2. Need to please customer, so reasonable. 3). Not safe, no fly. Incentive.

    We absolute no Jet riders help pay for the sickos.

    Citizens have not a trace of pride, so will only get worse. They don’t fly, Airlines would soon bring porns back in line.

    Bureaucrats don’t please nobody anymore.

    I HAVE WHAT i CAL A RATHER BRILLIANT IDEA. i THINK WE SHOULD PUT PROJECT “MAY DAY” INTO EFFECT. ON THE FIRST OF MAY ALL WHO LOATH THE T.S.A. SHOULD TAKE THE PLEDGE NOT TO FLY OR TAKE ANY COMMERCIAL TRANSPORT UNTIL THE T.S.A.IS CLOSED DOWN PERMANENTLY! THIS MAKES IT UNCOMFORTABLE FOR THE CARRIERS, AND IS IN NO WAY ILLEGAL. TRUE PASSIVE RESISTANCE IF SUFFICIENT PEOPLE DO THIS, AND SAY WHY , THIS MAY BRING DOWN THIS TYRANNICAL GROUP OF KNOW NOTHINGS. I AM SENDING THIS AS MANY ANARCHO-CAPITALIST WEB SITES AS I CAN FIND. i THINK THIS COULD WORK. THANKS MIKE
