While we sit down on our couches and watch the news, we can be fairly certain that the government is assaulting our liberties probably every time they convene in Washington D.C. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which is a part of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) which was authorized under the Patriot Act takes it to whole new levels almost daily.
Not only do they pat you down & search your bags, but people don’t understand that the mere existence of TSA is stifling business throughout the entire airport. Whether it be for the airlines or the companies that operate out of the airport that sell merchandise, I’m sure profits have declined drastically since the TSA has taken over the reigns of security checks.
You have probably seen stories popping up about the naked body scanners and the pat downs which equate to sexual assault if you opt-out of the scanners. Not only are the scanners degrading & bad for your health, but they’re unconstitutional per the 4th amendment:
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.
Here are some of the more recent headlines relating to the current issues with the TSA:
TSA Encounter at San Diego international airport
TSA fondles women and children who refuse naked body scanner
Meg McClain is harassed, has her ticket ripped up and gets hand cuffed to the chair
Pilot refuses full-body scan
as the saying goes: “give someone an inch and they’ll take a mile.” that sure does seem to fit with the government’s constant assault on our liberties.
It’s about time we STAND UP for our rights and demand liberty. If we allow a government agency to sexually assault us and look at photos of us in the nude, then they’ll never stop becoming more obtrusive.
