Push just right...you end up with a Navy SEAL.
Look across our society and see if you can find that same pattern being employed by those who would be our Masters."Via Western Rifle Shooters Association

"Once I ran from Russia to freedom
To America of my dreams
Years later who came for a visit
If not the same damn regime
Sure differences abound
We are not yet USSR
But we better watch out now
Foes of freedom advanced too far
Not the worst but it comes to mind
Are strip searches at airports
We stand for such treatments, just grumble
Though time has come to do worse
Let's do what we can with letters,
With scorn, avoidance, boycotts
And plan to do something better
If lesser means don't work
For we live in a special country
It's our last, thin line of defense
The last ditch in war for dignity
And liberty for all men
Should we fail, we won't be able
To run to some other land
We must plan to prevail in battle
So liberty doesn't end
Where else can we run? Nowhere
The rest of the world isn't free
No help will come from without
This is up to you and me."
"TSA offend thousands of people daily. They aren't bright enough or ethical enough to avoid giving further provocation. They are becoming less popular than lepers used to be. Lepers couldn't help their own plight, whereas TSA blueshirted, bluegloved thugs can. They can quit and get real jobs, or they can kill themselves out of shame. Either outcome would be acceptable.
I look forward to them being hounded and demeaned by the compatriots, to the point where their status would be lower than that of regular child molesters, who at least don't have the protection of the law. Americans are patient and seldom use terminal means of discouragement when milder measures have not been completely exhausted. Avoidance when possible, refusal to associate with current or even former TSA creatures personally or professionally, lawsuits at every opportunity...with luck, the least stable of them would suicide and the rest would eventually lose their jobs and have to do something less harmful for a living."
News reports on Saturday reporting that the TSA was announcing warnings to would-be travelers that any "would-be commercial airline passenger who enters an airport checkpoint but refuses to undergo the method of inspection as prescribed by the TSA workers on duty would not be allowed to fly, (but far more importantly)--would not be permitted to leave the airport."
Sounds like false imprisonment to me.
But that wasn't all. The TSA also included in it's announcement for the first time the new fine of $11,000 and possible arrest for anyone who refused.
TSA worker Sari Koshetz was quoted in one report, "Once a person submits to the screening process, they can not just decide to leave that process."
