Everyday, since Homeland Security decided they would fondle passengers, there have been many complaints and many comments. I can’t think of one single incident that was portrayed as pleasant for the traveler. Across the country, horror story after horror story has emerged. Women who had to suffer the embarrassment of removing breast prosthetics while being searched. Little kids being required to remove clothing while in line to be searched. A man whose urine bag was mashed, which covered him in urine. This AFTER he stated to the TSA that he had the bag on and it would leak if pressed on. The complaints that have been launched at the TSA is overwhelming and scary.
Sadly, this is America. Home of the Brave, Land of the FREE!. Yet, we are becoming more and more NOT FREE!
We are creating more and more invasive laws and rules that keep us under control. They say we are free, but that is an oxymoron. We are only free to the extent that the government wants us to be free, all the while saying it is to keep US safe. Sure, you believe that if you want to!
With the backlash from 9/11 still looming in the minds of the government, they have taken measures that at best, are ridiculous. We have for many years in this country, said, come on over. Come live in America. We want your money and your loyalty. We have let every Tom, Dick and Harry into the country. We have created a safe haven for terrorists. Now, they are killing us on every corner because we allowed them to come. America is on lock down. Only, it is just AMERICANS that are suffering. We let the immigrants come, we encouraged them to bring their foreign money and spend it in America. We let it get to this point and America is paying the price for that decision.
9/11 startled America. It woke us up to a reality that we had refused to look at forever. There are many haters of America. There are many that want to see us fall. This wasn’t news! It was a reminder. It was an advanced notice to come back from La-La land and pay attention.
Here we are 9 years later, still in a War, still looking for Osama Bin Laden and getting more and more paranoid. We are running scared in this country. With a President, that at best, has mini cajones and a Homeland Security agency that feels like, the only way to control this, is to harass Americans, we are not going to get anymore free. We are actually getting closer to being China than ever before. Still the terrorist problem is not any closer to being solved.
The measures that have been put in place by Homeland Security aren’t keeping the terrorists out! They have not stopped ONE SINGLE terrorist, in 9 years. But it is keeping Americans distraught and in an uproar. What is Homeland Security thinking? I can’t figure out a direction for them. They say they are protecting us from terrorists, however, it appears that Americans are being terrorized more than ever.
To have to be subjected to being felt off and being fondled, is absolutely the stupidest idea in the world. It seems that they create policy, based on the latest, almost terrorist act. The shoe bomber prompted them to make us take our shoes off. The underwear bomber prompted the full body scanners complete with radiation. Now, the last scare has prompted them to abuse us, by feeling parts of our bodies that most people reserve for a spouse or someone they love.
Why are Americans the ones who are being subjected to this? We didn’t attack us! And why are Muslims, in traditional garb allowed exceptions to search. Because of religious beliefs. According to the Council of Conservative Citizens, Barack Obama’s Homeland Security Czar, Janet Napolitano, says that she is considering allowing Muslim women to “pat themselves down” at airports. All while TSA goons grope everyone else including children.” According to the Washington Times, “The agency now threatens $11,000 in fines against anyone refusing to submit to humiliation at the airport.”
OK, so correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t it the radicals of the Muslim world that attacked us? Isn’t it the radical Muslims that continue to talk trash and threaten us? Why the hell are Americans getting harassed? Why are we being sexually molested and if you are a Muslim woman, you can walk through without any search? Self-Search? What is that? I can pat myself down and say, NO, I don’t have anything illegal or dangerous….Are you kidding President Obama? Say you are kidding!
This entire situation has been conceived and perpetrated by over eager, non experienced, control freaks who don’t really have a clue. So ill focused of the government. This is a situation that should be taken to the Supreme Court by all of those that have been subjected to this horrible policy. Which brings to mind, Are the TSA agents who are feeling passengers, happy with the policy? Are they getting their jollies by feeling penises and vaginas and breasts. Maybe there are secret pedophiles who enjoy feeling children. What kind of emotional stress are they putting on children who have been drilled about strangers touching them. Why would you search an American child? Why would you search any American?
Americans are not the enemies! We didn’t try and destroy America! Yes, we want to be safe, but this is government abuse. This is stupid in the extreme. We are losing both our minds and our freedoms here in this long standing, free society. We are standing around and letting the fools in Washington direct our traffic. We take it, because we don’t want to rock the boat. Are any of those NEW, Tea Party and Republican elected going to stand up and do their jobs? Will anyone stand up and protest this horrible, stupid policy?
We will see. This is my protest! I hardly ever fly, but this is going to filter over into the rest of our lives. This TSA situation is not keeping terrorists out, it is keeping America in paranoid gridlock. It is continually stripping us of freedom. The terrorists are sitting outside of the country or wherever inside the country, they have infiltrated and laughing at how stupid we are. They are laughing at our paranoia. They will continue to laugh and plan and jump one step ahead of us to kill us. Meanwhile, we are spending time, feeling children and old and sick people.
Do you feel stupid yet? Stand up and say it! Stand up and exercise your freedom of speech! Write, call, email or send a text to the White House and to the Government. We didn’t elect you crazies to take our freedom AWAY! Do your job, quit grabbing at straws and do something FOR America, instead of removing our rights.
President Obama, I am ashamed I voted for you today. To hear that your policy is to allow Muslim women to self search, while innocent Americans, true Americans are subjected to this crap, is ridiculous. This is not the way to get votes. Stand up and put your doggone pants on sir. Grab your cojones and lets make good decisions. Millions of people supported you, now do the job, we elected you to do. Stop jumping from place to place and get this country right. This TSA policy is very wrong. Maybe, you should take your daughters and your wife through the line at the airport and just SEE what it feels like to them. Do you want a stranger feeling your daughter’s crotch…Me neither sir! ME NEITHER!
