TSA Enters New Terrain

This video is currently Drudge’s headline, and at the time of posting has only about 8,000 views, so I’m sure it’s newly in the public realm. Frankly, this should be the metaphorical shirt stripped from the entire enterprise of the Transportation Security Administration:

Surely there are means of providing airplane security without strip searching children in full videorecordable view of the public… although we may have to discard a liberal shibboleth or two.

“Surely there are means of providing airplane security without strip searching children in full videorecordable view of the public…”
Yeah. It’s called profiling, aka common sense.
“Go on through Mr. and Mrs. Culpepper, kids, have a nice trip. Let me help you with that bag grandpa.”
“You, with the turbin and you with the burkah, behind the curtain, now!”
“Oh, you’re from Yemen? You can’t fly in this country! Security!”
Problem solved.

Of course no right-wing-nut like Conservative.. Gay-Bar bomber Eric Robert Rudolph, or Conservative child killer Tim McVeigh would ever think of strapping a bomb on a little boy…would never happen…
NEVER
even though it has happened..in many conservative countries around the world

Sam makes an allegation without even bothering to cite facts. Perhaps he could explain what he means by “conservative”. Because there is virtually no other country in the world that embodies the principles of American constitutional conservatism.
I suspect that he is wrongly applying the term to thuggish dictatorships and phony monarchies that make no pretense of embracing the Leftist programs and language. But merely not being Marxist does not make a person, nor a country, “conservative”.
Is anyone else getting tired of these lame attempts to smear those who believe in American constitutional principles?

Yeah Sam, sure …. a seven year old white kid traveling with his family.
Please, enlighten me. What countries where these? Dates? Come on Sam, prove to us that liberals can back up their stuff…
No wonder one of satan’s nick names is “the accuser”.
Get real.

Liberal fools grab desparately at the Rudolphs and McVeighs and conveniently forget the thousands of Islamist(as opposed to merely Islamic)terrorists bent on the destruction of “infidels”.
I know this isn’t nice to say,but I sincerely hope they are the ones to find out first hand.
If some woman in a burkha or other voluminous garb gets her nose out of joint over being searched by another femaale,screw her-she grab the bus.
And guess what?Young Islamic men should get extra scrutiny.It’ reality.

Please check out my memory. I notice in newspaper reports taht TSA people are now “security professionals”. It seems to me that when they were first hired, the standards were about those of a parking lot attendent. The pay scale was about the same. Then the feds took over and they were “federalized” and pay went up to about $40,000. I have never heard of any increased training for them.
Now they are demanding “collective bargaining rights”. And they want protection from “abusive passengers”. Hey TSA, take the bus. The terrorists have won.
I am sick of hearing of Timothy McVeigh, he was an abberation. I fear Islamic terrorists are not.
