TSA Agent wearing a burka

    I fly fairly frequently for work.

    I recently had the pleasure of not being scanned or pulled aside for a friendlier session in two major cities. Others around me were not so lucky. Blonde females between 18 and 22 seemed to be the likely candidates for further scrutiny - and a few elderly, Caucasian grandmothers.

    If the US is stilll on the "Arabs/Muslims are TeRrOrIsTs" kick, why are they searching non-arabs/non-Muslims: attractive young female college students, middle age white guys with pot bellies and grannies?:mad:

    The other thing that bothers me is the broken English of many of the TSA workers. There were a few Arabs working my line and I wondered how long they had had their green card and what exactly their qualifications were for searching me, a US born citizen. Who can feel safer when guys named Mohamed are the ones checking their bags? It's like they hired a bunch of NYC Cabbies to guard us from shampoo explosives.

    I made it through, had a surprisingly tasty omelette to order and then saw this: Yes, that's a burka, yes that's a real TSA agent, (I saw her badge when I passed her and made a U-turn to snap a pic)

    They're not just stripping us of our freedoms, they're rubbing our noses in it along the way.

    This ranks right up there just after the baby slave trade scandal. One would think that enough people will simply....wake up -snap out of it. There is no sense to make of this because it is a clear violation of liberty and the erosion of our freedoms, yet it is being played off as if it's all necessary. Look for these goons and burka ninjas to soon be walking our streets demanding papers and searching us wherever they choose. Believe it or not, it's coming if we can't put a stop to this insanity.

    The kidnapping of our children through the use of childrens protective services, when they pay special attention to the fact that if your child has green or blue eyes and dark hair, or if they fit the genetic category which is popular and where some sheik will pay a few million for the child is a disgusting business. Yet, it continues. Fondling and searching young women at the TSA checkpoints or making them go through naked body scanners is nearly as revolting.

    The Nazi's would be proud.

    Starve the Monster - stop flying. Yep, big inconvenience. But I will NOT have a Tango-sympathizer 'touching my junk'. Call it a personality quirk on my part.

    If it's less than 400 miles one way. I'm driving.

    if it's more, i'm still going to drive and make sure I can get some vacation/weekend time in there.

    alas, my road warrior days are behind me. Thankfully.

    I'd be banned from flying in pretty short order as I would have to push the boundaries. I'm thinking maybe a male enhancement device of some sort. I didn't see that on the list of no fly items

    One of my techie friends found underwear with metal filiments running through it. Haven't asked her if she tried them at airport screening yet. She got them after her um, free mamograms in NYC and Chicago after coming back from Europe.

    I go back to Nebraska every year in the fall to hunt pheasants and for the last 2 years drove there. I'm tired of dealing with the TSA morons keeping me safe and already planning my drive back there in 2011.

    Ha, those fools. I saw that on the evening news. It was a "planted" gun to test the TSA scrutiny. Notice, that they are not charging or firing anyone for neglect over this?

    I've never heard of a "snubnose" Baby GLOCK (and I own a 9mm Glock 26 aka "Baby Glock"). Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't snubnose designate a relover?
