TSA national opt out day November 24

"Good, but they're not going to touch women's breasts or genitalia!"

That was a comment from my roommate made when we were discussing the TSA searches as she was assuming (as a lot of women do) guys being inherently evil that it's okay to submit them to the searches and that they would not touch women's privates.

"Ooooh….That's where you're wrong Bunkie."

When I explained to her what they are ACTUALLY doing including GROPING children, her jaw drop down to the floor in total disbelief that our government would actually go as far as it has without someone being arrested.

By now, I am assuming that most people are aware of what is actually going on during these pat downs.

That somehow the government has decided that it is okay for government officials to fondle your genitalia areas in order to board an aircraft.

But let me throw out a little reminder... IT DOES NOT STOP THERE!

If you travel by train or bus you are also subject to security checks, although they have not gotten as elaborate as air travel yet.

ONCE SELECTED FOR A PATDOWN... DO YOU THINK YOU CAN JUST WALK AWAY? NOT!

John Tyner at the San Diego airport going through security when the TSA decided that Tyner required a little bit more of the "personal touch." The TSA agent explain to Tyner what he was going to do and Tyner informed the agent "you touch my junk and I'm going to have you arrested"

Tyner had the forethought to switch his cell phone to record and recorded the whole incident. (See video at the bottom of this post)

After Tyner informed the agent that he would be arrested by touching him only where his "wife or doctor are allowed", the agent got his supervisor who later got his manager who then took down Tyner's personal information and informed Tyner that he would not be allowed to board the aircraft without being searched however, he would be allowed to leave.

Tyner still refused the pat down and chose to leave. As a police officer was escorting Tyner out of the boarding area, Tyner went over to the ticket booth to see if he can get a refund, which he managed to do.

Thinking the incident was over and that he could go home, Tyner was stopped by two other agents who informed him that "once you begin the search, you have to complete it. Failure to comply would result in a civil suit and a $10,000 fine."

That was the first time that I've heard about the fine for refusing to go through any of the security checks.

And here is some other food for thought...

What if during a TSA patdown, they decide that they suspect they found something in your privates?

Are you going to be taken into some back room (hopefully) and strip-searched?

How about a cavity search?

us women have this little extra convenient storage area where we can hide combustible objects you know.

The whole point of it all is that enough is enough. If we give in to this type of humiliation just to travel than the terrorists have won. If the government gives into excluding Muslim women wearing burqas based on religious reasons alone, there should be an outcry from citizens that the government has ever heard before.

Representative Ron Paul has introduced HR 6416: the American Traveler Dignity Act In Congress {LINK} which basically says that the idea which is common practice in Congress to pass laws for which they are not subject to that his legislation that he is introducing will change that.
"My legislation is simple. It establishes that airport security screeners are not immune from any US law regarding physical contact with another person, making images of another person, or causing physical harm through the use of radiation-emitting machinery on another person. It means they are subject to the same laws as the rest of us. 

Imagine if the political elites in our country were forced to endure the same conditions at the airport as business travelers, families, senior citizens, and the rest of us. Perhaps this problem could be quickly resolved if every cabinet secretary, every member of Congress, and every department head in the Obama administration were forced to submit to the same degrading screening process as the people who pay their salaries.


Lars Larson claims that we do NOT have a constitutional right to travel on an airplane, which is true, we don't.

However, WE DO HAVE A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT OF FREE TRAVEL!

Right now, today this type of indignity only affects air travel...

But what about tomorrow?

Think about it.
