Well if it’s not, it should be, and while we’re at it, throw in some scented candles to accompany the “nudey pics” and the fondling. Where is this happening, at your local airport of course. In spite of our Constitutional guarantees that prohibit unreasonable search and seizure, the TSA has unveiled their new “nudey” X-Ray and enhanced search techniques. No warrant, no judge, no kidding. For those of you in Lake Jackson, the actual text of the fourth amendment is this:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Coming to an airport new you, the package check. No, not the carry on or checked baggage, your package. If you decline to take your “nudey” X-Ray picture, and you still want to fly, then Paul Blart the mall cop is going to “touch your junk”. But instead of searching people who might fight the profile of a terrorist, like any sane nation would, we decide to feel up a three year old little girl, her teddy, or Grand Ma in her wheel chair. This is just pathetic, and it really ticks me off. Enough is enough….
Now, I have been known to not be a big fan of the king pin of all Rontards, Ron Paul himself, but I always give credit where credit is due. Congressman Ron Paul introduced legislation today that would make the TSA agents just as culpable of taking nude pictures and feeling people up without their consent. You know, the same things we would to 5 – 10 years hard time (no pun intended, well maybe). Now I could really get behind that legislation,even if it’s the only meaningful legislation he has come up with in 20 some odd years. (what, I’m still gonna get my dig in there).
I don’t ever do this, but I have some homework for you… write your Congressman and your Senators, and demand they put a stop to the new TSA procedures. Your son or daughter could be the next unwitting victim of Paul Blart the TSA mall cop.
