Hot Bodies Running the TSA’s Gauntlet

Posted in category The Terror State

My latest article is up on LRC. The TSA’s antics have been all over the mainstream news. In fact, the local (Detroit) news on FOX at 10pm last night spent 20 minutes covering the TSA sexual assault issue. I am really hoping for a big clusterfuck at the airports this weekend. On the other hand, why fly at all? Is that trip necessary? If people would refuse to fly for non-business purposes, the entire travel industry would collapse.

    Ms De Coster, I enjoy your missives at LRC very much.

    I gave up flying over 12 years ago when a trip from Chicago to Toronto, and from Montreal to Toronto, took over 8 hours each. I could have hitch hiked it in less time (have done so from Toronto to Montreal and back).

    The constant lying and misinformation given to passengers finally broke this camel’s back. Since then I have observed the continuous deterioration of this mode of travel and have no intention of ever using it again. Knowing myself I’d probably punch the person groping me as a conditioned reflex action.

    If I must travel overseas… highly unlikely… I’ll go by freighter.

    Enough is enough!

    As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, I’m waiting for a full-scale RIOT to erupt at a major U.S. airport when some TSA thugtard gropes/molests the wrong wife or child of someone whose last thin strand of patience has been stretched to the snapping point and who decides to do what any decent man would do: stand up and protect his family. Today (“Thanksgiving Eve”) would be the logical time for anyone’s breaking point to kick in, as this is already arguably the most stressful travel day of the year, even without the TSAssholes making it infinitely worse. No doubt sympathetic fellow travelers would join the fray once some has declared that they’re “mad as hell and [are] not gonna take it anymore!”

    Now of course such an incident is exactly what the powers that be would love to see happen, giving them all the justification they would ever need to launch the bloody pogrom against the traveling public that they’ve been salivating for and to institute full-scale martial law throughout the nation’s transportation infrastructure. Of course the downside of that move for the State and the major benefit of it to freedom fighters would be that it would tear off, permanently, the semi-benevolent mask of “we’re doing this for your own safety” that they’ve used to justify this theater to date. Even the dumbest of the Amoricon sheeple would not longer swallow the totalitarian tripe that they’ve been fed so far.

    With any luck, the nation’s airports are nearly deserted today on “Opt Out” day.

    Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

    While I’m with you on the cop-a-feel issue, I don’t think not flying is cool, simply because you’re punishing the wrong people – the airlines.  You think they want this TSA BS?  Nope!  But hey, let’s see some sexual assault law suits against the TSA!  Personally, I can’t wait to get in line for my free groping!  They’d better be gentle though, or else I’ll be suing because they were recklessly endangering my right to reproduce!  ;-P

    I was disappointed to see that the national opt-out day didn’t have much impact.  I wasn’t surprised though.  Americans seem pretty good at indignation, but we haven’t quite got the “doing something about it” part down yet.

    Hopefully the gridlock didn’t happen because enough people opted-out of flying completely.  I can dream.

    Karen, great idea on bankrupting the airlines by not flying. I have avoided flying for years. But one problem:aren’t the airlines now mostly or at least partially owned by the government(us taxpayers) and won’t they just get a bailout if business tanks??

    Just wondering,
