Proliferation of Federal Snakes. Totalitarianism on the McDonald's business model.

"TSA screenings aren't just for airports anymore." LA Times: "Roving security teams increasingly visit train stations, subways and other mass transit sites to deter terrorism. Critics say it's largely political theater."
More than 5 Billion Gropes Copped Nationwide. . . and counting.
The Transportation Security Administration isn't just in airports anymore. TSA teams are increasingly conducting searches and screenings at train stations, subways, ferry terminals and other mass transit locations around the country.
"We are not the Airport Security Administration," said Ray Dineen, the air marshal in charge of the TSA office in Charlotte. "We take that transportation part seriously."
The TSA's 25 "viper" teams — for Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response — have run more than 9,300 unannounced checkpoints and other search operations in the last year. Department of Homeland Security officials have asked Congress for funding to add 12 more teams next year.
I've got a question: When are we going to stop funding our own oppression? Or should we just wait until some righteous citizen gets drawn down on by one of Janet the Second's Ronald McDonald control freak 'roid rager clown with a badge and shoots all the sonsabitches in the general area in righteous self-defense to kick off the ball?

Hmmm - so in major metropolitan areas there is this big push for people to avail themselves of mass transit - but at the same time tsa (among others) are going to do all in their 'power' to inconvenience those travelers? Seems to me that their real goal is just to desensitize the masses to even more intrusion into daily life................
Don't get me wrong, an orderly and safe society is not a bad thing - but what is the price tag in terms of civil liberty for such a society?

I enjoyed this quote from SHTFPlan.com.

"You take a bunch of well educated and (formerly) well fed men and women and threaten their children and give them no alternative and they’ll hand you your ass way faster than a bunch of illiterate goat herders and poppy farmers."

Certainly our betters know that they are much smarter, more well fed, have much more resources than all of us proles and that they can visit any indignation upon us anywhere at any time of their choosing and there will never be any consequence to their superiority over us. Maybe they are correct, maybe they aren’t. What is going to happen when the TSA start pulling over legal transport on the open highway, of the productive class, who happen to take firearm ownership quite seriously, and are in fact quite well armed?

Has anyone read "Neither Predator nor Prey"? It is a quick read. Git it and do it.

creeping creeping creeping...tyranny

It is reasonable to expect that by some date in the 1st three quarters of 2012, before the November elections, all hell is going to break loose. The elites know well there is a deep rumbling across this land, an undercurrent of disgust and outrage because of the imposition of tyrannical tactics designed to intimidate and liquidate the threat of a great American uprising before it evolves into a force nothing can stop.
The founding and founders of this great nation have not been forgotten. It is safe to say, if anything, there is a Renaissance of Liberty afoot. A reawakening of the gospel of Liberty in our time. Things are very different in some respects. In those respects it is going to take a quite different catalyst than in our founding for the paradigm of our time and Liberty.
Paramount among these differences is that the tyranny we face lives deeply among us, there is not an ocean and weeks of communications between the tyrant, sycophants and apparatchiks. There is not a frontier wilderness to run to to reequip and fight another day. There is a gargantuan dependent welfare class of useful dupes, a plague of illegal alien locusts with a finger in the air, and a Nomenklaturer class who will stop at nothing to keep their self centered greedy meat hooks on the paychecks and tin pot power they wield.
The one thing that is going to change the entire dynamic is when the liberty minded rule of law-ers and productive people of this Republic come to the profound understanding they are not alone, that millions and millions share a commonality that defies time and history.
All the grousing and bitching, complaining and chest thumping don't mean squat. That time has passed. The dynamic in free speech needs to transition from the woe is us million man argument of the possible perils to Liberty to the simple fact tyranny just is. It don't matter to a bucket of warm spit the million details and distractions/misdirections, it is common sense and practical thought that if we don't realize together we are a powerful sovereign entity that trumps all other powers extra- or un-constitutional we loose. Period, end of story.
The might of this Sovereign will and the power sanctioned to it has not changed since our founding.
It is the sea change.
This is the paradigm.
It is the second front.

Easy fix.... See a checkpoint? Don't use the transit. At some point the Bozo's in charge of these systems will see the light (or not). But whether you get groped or not is entirely your choice.

No TSA child molester has ever stuck their hands in my pants, or ever will.

I pray for your safety and that of our comrades in arms.And I have every confidence that sometime in the not to distant future we will see the Bushes,Clintons,Obamas,and every other leacherous treacherous traitor who had anything to do with the rape of this country,"STAND BEFORE A WAR CRIMES TRIBUNAL"!

The idea is to get you used to it so when they start searching ALL vehicles you do not mind as much...

Just what is it the TSA does that the local Highway Patrol can not or does not do?

And why in the hell would a state allow such garbage any way?

What we all need is interconnected/intercommunicated militia. Come to a TSA/VIPER checkpoint and can't get out? Make a phone call.
"Hi. This is me. I'm stuck on Hwy 123 mile marker 456. I need any available long-range team out here ASAP. Thanks. Bye."

'Nuff said.

I'm with Woodman. TSA will have their asses handed to them first time they get all goose-steppy with the first squared-away, armed citizen that tolerates ZERO BS and is willing to back it lawfully with lead. Goes double when he calls in his crew for backup.
