Jim Bovard vs the TSA Oppressors

Monday, March 21, 2016 11:03 No Comments

The heroic Jim Bovard in the USA Today on his adventures with the TSA and the response to his Freedom of Information Act request. Flying home from Portland, Ore., on Thanksgiving morning, I had a too-close encounter with TSA agents that spurred me to file a Freedom of Information Act request. On March 5, I finally received [...]

The TSA Wants to Remind You That You Are A Captive

Sunday, November 17, 2013 20:43 2 Comments

The new “exit” portals gulags at Syracuse Hancock Airport are bulletproof pods that are meant to make you feel like a prisoner who cannot leave. They’ve been called pods, bubbles, capsules, even Willy Wonka’s glass elevator, and they have caused confusion and frustration. Adam Hayes, who was traveling from Fort Worth Texas, said “I’ve never [...]

Alban Gerhardt, an international cello performer, has been in the news this week, and not for his cello playing. Gerhardt was on his way from Berlin to Madison, WI to perform with the local symphony orchestra when the thugs at Dulles Airport decided to search his luggage. The barely functional TSA goons probably thought that [...]

Friday, November 2, 2012 8:33 1 Comment

Wikipedia describes it this way: “Sex offender registration is a system in various states designed to allow an government authorities to keep track of the residence and activities of sex offenders…” I’ve not been flying much, for the obvious reasons, but I recently wrote about my latest incident of molestation on my way to the Mises Institute [...]

On my way to the Mises Institute Supporter’s Summit, I just got molested by the TSA At Detroit International Airport. The gal was actually about as nice as a TSA agent can get. What boggled my mind was all of the sheeple who looked at me bug-eyed (GASP!) when I held up the line by opting [...]

TSA vs Cupcakes

Sunday, December 25, 2011 16:59 1 Comment

Folks may know how I like to pick on the cupcake craze because I see it as just one of many boom-bust absurdities that were born during the years of excess spawned by government monetary policy that encouraged and triggered credit addiction and high time preferences. During the boom years, we saw the rise of [...]

The TSA Makes Us All Less Safe

And less free. Charles C. Mann writes an excellent piece in Vanity Fair on Bruce Schneier, a security expert, and the security theatre of the United States government. Two months after 9/11, the Bush administration created the Transportation Security Agency, ordering it to hire and train enough security officers to staff the nation’s 450 airports within [...]

Airport Interrogations

As a response to my post, today, that I was molested by the TSA, Johnny Kramer FYI’d me on this Doug Casey article: “A Short Course in Clearing Customs.” I suspect many, even most, people resent being herded like cattle into lines in order to be interrogated, have their baggage rifled and have their government-issued [...]

Today I Was Molested

I just opted out of the porno fucking scanner at Detroit Airport, and I was molested by a female agent of the totalitarian state. She put her hands into my pants (INTO), grabbed my boobs, felt my vagina, and checked me over in every nook and cranny. She even spent an inordinate amount of time [...]

Do Not Do Unto the TSA As They Do Unto You

Sunday, July 17, 2011 14:53 3 Comments

The TSA’s wuss henchmen and strapping, corn-fed females can molest, grope, grab, torment, harass, and assault you as they please, under the guise of preserving your life, and this nation of sheep stands idly by and yields to the intimidation and humiliation. But dare to touch the breast of a TSA agent, and you are [...]
