And then there's "Freedom fades as we grope for answers."
The current Homeland Security chief, Janet Napolitano, has no credibility either. She’s still insisting scanners are “safe, efficient” and that privacy is protected because “the imaging technology that we use cannot store, export, print or transmit images.”
Whoops. U.S. Marshals have already admitted saving 35,000 naked body images from a scanning machine at a federal courthouse in Florida.
I can’t wait for the lucrative TSA black market in naked body scans of 15-year-old boys and girls — and those of famous celebrities.
I can’t wait either for the next so-called “necessary” safety measure. Scanners don’t detect contraband in body cavities. Get ready for airport colonoscopies and gynecological exams. Why not? We all know the safety-first hysterics idiotic mantra: “If that colonoscopy saves one life...”
Refusing to complete the screening process once it’s begun subjects you to civil penalties. My new hero, John Tyner, found that out when he refused to let a TSA screener, in his moving rallying cry, “Don’t touch my junk.” Tyner is facing a $10,000 fine.
Oh, what a passive, steam-rolled embarrassment of a nation we’ve become. As Ben Franklin said so well, “Those who would give up essential liberty to buy a little temporary safety deserve neither.” That’s us, 2010: deserving neither.
Why don't we file molestation charges on TSA gropers?
