    Just curious... if there is ever a "rectal" bomber.... will you be OK with the new procedures that TSA will be sure to implement when that happens?

    Damm CDR, maybe they would have to develop a new scanner. I've heard Barney Frank is retiring. Maybe he's already done some R&D on this.

    Barney should be put on a "NO anything list".

    TSA only checks jet flights. I now only fly prop planes. When I can't get flights on prop planes I drive. I have been sexually assaulted twice by TSA and I will not put up with it again. The last time I was in a wheelchair and was returning home, after being medivacked, and could not drive. Flying is mostly a convenience for me I would rather take extra time and arrive to my destination relaxed than upset from the way I was treated.

    Air hijacking was ended by close of business on 9/11, Flight 93 showed us that. These citizens stepped up as others have done. Our country and way of life depends on the citizenry doing the right thing when called upon. These opportunities are rarely scheduled, the situation presents itself and you either step up or you don't.

    Was it Jefferson that said, "Those that are willing to give up liberty for security deserve neither"?

    That is easy for you to say. Just wait until they grab your left one and give a hearty squeeze. Let me tell you, it hurts like hell.

  7. I'm also wheelchair bound, but the TSA sees me as a mobile IED. I've been 'molested' in the name of 'security' but not by the screener I would have chosen!

    When asked about the what's and why's of their screening beyond what their site says (and I carry a copy of their ROEs & Air Carriers Act (the DOJ sanctioned FAA version of ADA & ADAA) they beg off with ill thought out excuses- even to stating that their Supervisors have the final say, not the TSA website.

    That any Government Agency would accept the vetting process of another is rare, and will be as long as we keep re-electing those that won't represent us.

    As far as 'rectal scans' go, go ahead and send me through the xray, but I agree with one thing....if they stick a finger up my ***, I'll fart on them....LOL

    Any agency of the Gov't that has rules that common citizens are not allowed to see even if in court is an open invitation to abuse. And that is what the TSA is.

    I switch to the tactical sash. Since it is made from fabric...no metal detector worries...

The entire time he is touching me inappropriately, I will be moaning and adding my own dialogue to the proceeding.

    "Oh, yeah, baby. Right there. A little left, oh yeah, don't stop! Ohh, do you like it, baby?"

    Wonder how quick my pat down will go?
    In theory a great idea but will get you a 4A permitted special pat-down, the one that is incident to arrest.
