    Right after 9/11 my National Guard unit got mobilized to guard airports. Obvioulsy we were carrying M16s in the secure area of the airport. One day one of the screeners (Don't think they were TSA yet) noticed that one of our guys had a Buck knife on his webgear and pitched a fit because it wasn't allowed in the secure area. The guy was allowed to leave it w/ the SOG but talk about stupid

    I'll go you one better:

    TSA do NOT need to touch my privates.Thus i will not let them.

    They are NOT "just doing their jobs", if they were, they would be apprehending REAL threats, rather than Grannis's knitting needles and feeling the crotch of a poor six year old.

    I have adopted a policy that will truly help things go smoother for those who DO fly... I won't. No lines for me, and shorter lines for everyone else. Until these perverts and powermongers are put in their place (at the back end of the welfare lines, NO pensions for early-out) I won't let those goons near me. And no, I'm NOT paranoid. I'm simply voting with my wallet, and my feet. If I have to fly internationally, I'll drive up to Vancouver BC and board from there. Or, if Texas actually manages to pass their "bell the cat" laws and banish TSA's pornogames from that state, I may well consider flying out from there. But, how to get back home...... now THAT is an issue.....

    Trust you with a loaded M-16 but not a knife. Typical of the TSA mentality too.

    Yea sure you don't want them to pat down you junk? I say hell have fun with it till they don't feel comfortable dealing with you. " Hey you need to wrap your hands around it to make sure there is nothing taped under it come on don't be shy" "yea thats the spot don't stop."

    And as it was pointed out I was being sarcastic. So many were saying just go along with the police stepping over your rights cause they are just doing their job and it will go a lot smoother if you just go along with it. So I thought why not post it here. But thanks for taking the time to point out those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.

    I'm in the Coast Guard which is the largest department of Homeland Security. Once TSA went crazy I bought this shirt online.

    I plan on wearing this if I ever fly again.

    Chap-
    Love the t-shirt. I'm going to get one simply for a laugh... 'cause a good laugh is worth it.
    To everyone: I was making an arrest and one partner wasn't willing to touch someones 'junk'. Someone else touched his junk and found a gun. It could have been a bomb or lethal chemical just as easily. I'm sorry, but everyone has the same biological 'bits and pieces' as everyone else.If that's all they need to do to ensure my safety, then touch my 'junk' all day, I don't care. If I'm not doing anything wrong, who cares? What do you think happens when you are detained or arrested?
    Nobody wants to be killed in the next terrorist action- not even me. Is it better to get blown up or touched? Gee, touched or killed...the great dilemma...hmmmmm....
    Put your testosterone away for a minute and think about priorities. If you don't want to be touched, then drive, take a train, or walk to your next vacation. I know people who do that...

I asked why the CCW here allows me to to bypass the check and was told because the CCW has a very detailed histry ran on me, so if I pass that search why should the state tie up the system when i buy a new gun. OK that makes total sence to me. So shouldn't the TSA look at that and let me surpass the check at the airport? i have had a background check done on me to say i'm not a bad guy! So why does the TSA look at everyone like they are a bad guy?

    Just curious what you guys think? oh by the way have any of you seen the video of the Tsa agent doing a full pat down search on a 6 year old girl? It is a truly sad thing to watch!
    My answer to all of this is just do not fly anymore. Seriously, if Americans would only fly or drive a car WHEN WE ABSOULUTELY HAD TO, then I think the TSA as well as the oil companies would reconsider all the BS they shove down our throats all the time. Hit them in the pocket book to make them cry "uncle" real quick.

    As others have pointed out, there needs to be an express lane also for those who have clean gov't records. If the US gov't ( read FBI ) had had problems with me, they would have known a long time ago. As many miles as I've had in the air at gov't expense or going to a gov't location. But it doesn't bother me as I can't fly anymore anyhow. And TSA does want to start screenings of passengers on ground transportation also. TSA never has caught anyone and is just on a power trip.

    Added note, the Feds also have my truck's and trailer's tags in their files too.

    This entire issue has nothing to do with being a liberal or conservative issue -- it's a human rights issue. When this entire fiasco started, I wrote numerous letters to DHS and Congress asking for action to be taken -- I never got any reply. I think any of us would jump to action if we saw something like this happening to our loved ones in our own homes or in any public place. The least we can do is keep the pressure up on our leaders. Offer alternative solutions, get the word out, keep pushing for positive change or nothing will be done. Many of us fly because we have to. I fear what TSA will do next once our real enemies find a way to breach the wonderful set of "security" measures we have put in place. I think it is a great idea to allow CWP holders to bypass security at airports. (Though the ignorant rabble will jump and say that guns are now being allowed on airplanes). CWPs already prove to society that the holder has passed a substantial background check in order for them to be issued. Though it makes me sad that a piece of paper or plastic could allow a person to be free from 4th Amendment violations.
