TSA Still Bullying People

From this Texas TV station, we read of a woman who was arrested after she refused a pat-down molestation session from the TSA.  She couldn't go through the scanner, due to her pacemaker.  Having been a rape victim in the past, she didn't want to go through a repeat of her trauma.  Can anyone blame her?

The callousness of the TSA is abominable.  What is even more chilling is the attitude of the other travelers interviewed.  These are the sorts of people who would make great nazi pawns.  In fact these are the sorts of folks that might be called "sheeple" - go along to get along.

As I think of these folks, a quote from Benjamin Franklin comes to mind: "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."  They also wind up obtaining neither in the end.

Now let's watch this Rod Stewart-esque video on the TSA screening debacle.  At the very end you'll see the Fourth Amendment.  You might want to pause the video to study that amendment.  Click here if you can't see embedded video.
