    Its the old good cop/bad cop routine to NUDGE us to the scanners:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cass_Sunstein

    Progressives KNOWS we are too stupid to see what they plan for us is brilliant, a must do…so they NUDGE.

    AND this is confirmed by the propaganda press, aka establishment press making this story #1 but not discussing the violation of the 4th Amendment, by a regime that clearly hates the right to privacy and so is dangerous.

    Also their back door shadow government covert activities…the latest being net neutrality…that threatens our freedoms.

    Our times are too dangerous to be mindless…its time to wake up.

    Vote Demoncrats out, they are a cult, not the pro American Democrats of former years…a gaggle of Soros sock puppets who hate our freedoms but love getting rich destroying them.

  2. Olo Baggins of Bywater says:

    Everybody here knows exactly what happens if the DOJ or HSA backs down on security procedures, or even hints they might….they’ll get ridiculed to no end. “Obama is soft on terrorism.” It’ll be in every 2012 political ad.

    I’m laughing at how many situations BushCo set up in this manner…where changing (fixing) or backing down on over-ambitious Bush’s reactionary 9/11 policy will be conflated mercilessly by the right-wing press.

    If you or somebody you know is flying tomorrow, they better get to the airport at least a couple hours early. TSA is not ready for a massive number of pat-downs.

  3. Olo Baggins of Bywater says:

    Alfred: Glenn Beck is eating your brain.

  4. foobar says:

    Of course Alfred is outraged. Non-muslims are being groped.

  5. Dallas says:

    Blame the conservatives who vote in fear for wackos after being brainwashed by their GOP shepherds. Years later, they belly ache at the results you see.

    The liberals and centrists are always there to prevent and fight back…Let take a look….

    * Iraq war : Baby Bush avenges daddy Bush.. Nuff said. Protesters then accused of not “supporting our troops”. Today the conservative sheeple agree – a trillion dollars later.

    * Vietnam/Kent State protest. Sheeple called them hippies and communists. Now the same sheeple listen to woodstock music because it’s cool.

    * TSA : Cheney administration encroaches on civil liberties and creates TSA jobs program for government approved sexual assault. ACLU called “pro-Muslim”. Now the flying sheeple belly ache.

    * The GOP installed Supreme Court allows corporations unlimited money to buy government. Half the sheeple think this is a good idea. The other half have no fucking clue. In 5-8 years the sheeple will be bellyaching of corrupt government.

    * Bush gives away $800B in tax cuts – a spending because it’s unfunded. Half the sheeple like it because “tax cut” is in the sentence. The other half have no fucking clue of the math involved. The sheeple are just now figuring out thanks to Dvorak cartoon characters used to educate.

  6. The Pirate says:

    I blame you and sheeple like you Dallas. Regurgitating the liberal talking points/blaming Bush is tiresome, inaccurate, unimaginative, mindless dribble designed to disguise the real problem. You solve nothing, much like the politicians you claim to support.

    Both parties are up your ass Dallas, both will continue to screw you, and everyone else, in the ass as long as you, and everyone else, remain a one-sided idiot that can’t think for him/herself, take action and VOTE THEM ALL OUT.

    Term limits are where transparent government will come from. One term (change the House term to 4 years). The government should not be a jobs program or life-long career choice. Career politicians must be eliminated.

    More than one term in public service leads to less public service and more corruption.

  7. Alfred Persson says:

    #32-35 & uncle Dave

    A brain is a terrible thing to waste.

    Why grope children and grandma, if not to NUDGE the public to accept the loss of your 4th Amendment…

    The TSA has not caught one terrorist.

    It won’t stop chemcial explosives.

    We had terrorists attacking us for decades, why the over-reaction now?

    Why the panic?

    Why not adopt common sense security we know works well for the Israeli’s?

    Because that doesn’t fit the progressive agenda to scare us into accepting the loss of our freedoms.

    Vote the statist cult out, vote out all progressives, whether Democrat or Republican…

    Before its too late.

    Uncle Dave and sock puppets will rejoice Big Government runs their life, but many of you who are giving up your freedom, will not.

    How to get TRUE security? Tele-presence!

    No more putting up with being groped by underpaid, low-expectation, semi-literate, GED-carrying troglodytes.

    We need a much faster INTERNET and in return for this, our contribution to national security, it should be as widely and as inexpensively available as electricity.

    No more dicking around with telcos which try to rip a hundred bucks a month out of your pocket.

    Control ComCast and Cox and Time-Warner he same way that we control the power grid. And no censorship either.

    True net neutrality just like the phone system has. (“We serve everybody, from presidents and kings to the scum of the earth.” – Ernestine [AKA Lily Tomlyn])

    If they can do it in Finland, we can do it here: The internet as a basic human right.

  9. Olo Baggins of Bywater says:

    Alfred, you assume progressives want this touching. I don’t think they do. And with that the rest of your partisan rant floats away like a fart in the wind.

    Neither party wants to be seen as soft on terror, and the current admin sure as hell doesn’t want to be asleep at the wheel like the last guy. Therefore, TSA is stuck with implementing a policy that prevents the pols from being embarrassed.

    You realize that Beck is just one small step away from playing with his poop, right?

  10. RTaylor says:

    Again I have to remind people that there’s a lot of land between the coasts. The average American doesn’t care. They just want on the plane, and considers anyone that gets in their way of that a liberal asshole. There’s no unity in this country. If everyone would agree not to fly for a single day, the airlines would bulldoze the TSA out the airport. It’s all about me and getting to Moms house for in time for dinner, damn anything else.

  11. Alfred Persson says:

    #38 The only thing floating like a fart in the wind, is them mind you lost when a butterfly kicked you in head.

    Progressives love control, its what they crave…they know what’s good for us, and they will impose their will whether we like it or not.

    The proof is Obama’s shadow government working to make cap & trade, net neutrality, fairness doctrine, the law of the land, by passing congress.

    Now they over react to terrorism…a rational person would ask why…

    You believe they don’t want to be seen as soft on terrorism…but why insist they be given miranda rights, Civilian Trials that WILL result in their being acquitted?

    Because they do NOT care if they are seen as soft on terror… that won’t happen, they control the establishment press… it will not tarnish them as they do conservatives.

    So the reason must lie elsewhere, the group that supported the Ground Zero mosque, open borders, etc., against the will of 70% of Americans does not care how the public sees them…

    They care what the public becomes as they lose their freedom because of irrational fear…

    They want to be in control when that happens, and the only way to ensure that, is to make it happen while they control the bureaucracy shadow government…

  12. Olo Baggins of Bywater says:

    Shadow government. rofl that gets me every time.

  13. smartalix says:

    (shameless plug)
    In my novel Cyberchild (99 cents on Kindle!) I predict (among other things) that we’ll be sealed into personal cubicles (one- two- or three-seat models) prior to takeoff. Toilet needs are dealt with by using catheters (with placment assistance provided if requested).

  14. Nutjob says:

    #22 – Indeed. It is extremely suspicious. In fact it is even worse than you say.

    Just to remind everybody, this is what HAS happened:
    The crotch bomber was on a terrorist watch list. But his name was not put on the no-fly list, and his USA visa was not revoked.

    He went through Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, which, at that time, had the body-scanning machines installed. However, he was allegedly escorted by his handler(s) from the checkin counter to the departures gate without passing through security.

    So, this guy on a terrorist watch list managed to board the plane without presenting his passport and without going through security like the plebs. Duh?

    This is the basis for further humiliation of the people who actually go through security. Clearly, however, terrorists needn’t worry.

  15. Nutjob says:

    #42

    Oh god, that sounds appalling. DON’T GIVE THEM IDEAS :P (not that they need help, right?)

  16. Faxon says:

    ohhhhhh !
    I’m just so angry I could spit!
    ohhhhhh !

  17. JimD says:

    Yeah, the Titty Squeezing Agency (TSA), not satisfied with GONAD GROPING as well, will MADATE RECTAL REAMIING AS WELL !!! So the “Friendly Skies” will have been turned into the “F##K YOU Skies” !!!

  18. Alfred Persson says:

    #41 Your theory flies in the face of reality…

    A regime that doesn’t care about public opinion when backing the Ground Zero mosque, open borders, health plan, civilian trials for terrorists…

    Doesn’t give a hoot if a few believe it soft on terror, THAT won’t get air time in the establishment media, neither will Uncle Dave care.

    Rush Limbaugh just reported a better reason for these demeaning molestations of women and children.

    It diminishes us in the eyes of the Arab world, where touching women is forbidden.

    We are made to appear cowardly…which explains the goal of their attacks…to kill us by a thousand cuts…

    AND Imam Obama’s complicity.

    NOW we learn the Taliban Leader that was paid a lot of money for peace in Afghanistan, was an importer, he never never had to show his birth certificate!

    Where have we heard that before?

  19. Nutjob says:

    #46 – Remember, it only takes one half-assed terrorist attempt for “increased” security to be forced on the travelling public.

    Perhaps you have some expensive and unproven machines to sell, that your marketing department can claim could conceivably prevent a terrorist attack. No matter how contrived and unrealistic the scenario, the opportunity for your business is clear! Act now to secure your company’s future!

    Or, if you don’t have a machine to sell, here is your opportunity to troll the entire world! Imagine the perverse yet overwhelming sense of satisfaction you could bask in, knowing you were personally responsible for forcing full body cavity searches upon millions of passengers every day! Of course you could never tell anyone, but at least you would know.

    And remember, the contraband shoved up your patsy’s ass doesn’t even have to be explosive or even dangerous, as long as it makes for a scary sounding story on the evening news.

  20. Alfred Persson says:

    Rush Limbaugh just called on President Obama to do the right thing.

    Recall how he swam in the Gulf to prove how safe it was…

    Its time he take his daughters through a TSA groping event, to prove to us its safe..

    Surely even Uncle Dave will see the wisdom of this…they can bring some of fat ass Michele’s box lunches with them.

  21. chuck says:

    Well, it took a few weeks, but good old American ingenuity has developed underwear that can block the full body scanners.

    http://dvice.com/archives/2010/11/fig-leaf-underw.php

    It’s just a matter of time before a terrorist gets his entire outfit made out of the same material, and demonstrates just how stupid the entire TSA is.

  22. foobar says:

    Limbaugh has a 2 inch pecker. No wonder he’s “shy”.

  23. Alfred Persson says:

    Once the airlines are nationalized, scanners and molesters devastated its business, and SEIU runs them, then the pat downs will cease.

    But fat ass Michele’s menu will your only choice.

  24. Alfred Persson says:

    #51 Your mistaken…that wasn’t Limbaugh you met in the park, he lied to you.

  25. HaHaHa! says:

    Limbaugh’s radio persona would be the most ignorant thing on this planet if Glenn Beck would keep his mouth shut.

    If one of the former presidents advised Obama to go through airport security that would be worth something. But Limbaugh is a nobody and needs to do what he does best, taking drugs.

    I rather listen to nonsense coming from Bush Jr than to listen to the fairy tale queens (Limbaugh, Beck) speak.

    Stop flying…TSA will eventually go away.

  26. Alfred Persson says:

    #54 That’s a record, everything you said is wrong:

    http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/130549-next-step-for-body-scanners-could-be-trains-boats-and-the-metro-

    If we don’t lose these progressives, we lose America. They want Venezuela, they should move there. Lets confiscate their money first, what they stole would total billions.

    #54 Straight to the gay woodsy angle? Where did that come from?

  29. Alfred Persson says:

    #58 Palin on your mind? She kicks 2012 Obama ass, no doubt.

    It will be fun watching your Palin Derangement Syndrome in full outbreak, hilarious indeed. Can’t wait.

  30. foobar says:

    #59 Wow, you actually took my stupid little joke about Limbaugh as a personal attack on you. You really have been imprinted.

    I hope Palin runs in 2012, it’ll finish turning the US election into a reality show. If the US economy is still in the dumper she might even win, which would be hysterical. The Tea Party owners need their Zaphod Beeblebrox – and Palin fits the bill.

    Palin running is an easy predication. Try something hard, like Christine O’Donnell on Dancing with the Stars. And guys like you will suddenly start listening to Broadway musicals for no apparent reason.
