    Default [US] TSA sued over domestic US cell phone searches

    Here comes the TSA, confusing everyone again. Must be a corporate policy. First all cell phones have to be off for security, now “travelers/passengers” have to turn them on. Then international folks get their cell phones searched, next we have reports of people in the us getting their phones searched.

    Quote There are a growing number of reports of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) searching the electronic devices of passengers on domestic flights in the US, according to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has sued the federal agency for records.

    Here’s my take on it. It’s called incrementalism. Once they start these invasive procedures, they never retract their practices. They just want more and more, year after year.

    So I started wondering, to solve this big supposed problem of terrorists trying to take down airliners, why don’t they just require everybody to fly naked? Is that where we’re headed?

    Here’s more of my take on it:

    Unconstitutional search and (temporary) seizure of private property private communications? Why am I seeing skulls and lightning bolts?

    I enjoyed this video, Joe. You had me laughing!!!

    What the TSA does is ridiculous. I've had my own experiences. I got a pat down when I refused a naked body scanner. I told them I didn't want either one-- and I reminded them that this was a free will universe, and my free will choice was to neither have a naked body scanner OR a pat down--but they had some supervisors come after me, so I went into a room with a polite TSA agent and she patted me down. That's crazy!

    It's an invasion of privacy.

    No, I don't wish to give up my rights for their so-called "security". They are creating the terrorists (our own rogue intelligence agencies and corrupt politicians) to invade our privacy.

    We know who they are and what they are doing.

    Thanks for the laugh!!!

    Now you understand WHY i do everything I can to avoid passing through USA when flying elsewhere, but everything i can - 2-3 hours delays at US check points, body scanners or patting, extremely rude custom agents, having to walk barefoot - no it is not all countries that are that difficult to travel to or through.

    So, as I am not the only one thinking and doing that way, this means that US airlines have a bit less clientele they would have had otherwise.

    However, to answer to Joe, here my case:

    I do not have any more air conditioning in my car. I told a friend I would die driving in summer without AC.

    He answered that the solution is to drive naked.

    I answered that I cannot because I would cause accidents all around me, for the opposite reasons of what would have been if I were 20 years old. lollllll

    Flying naked maybe the solution to stop the US airlines to make money, most flyers are over 35 aren't they?

    Because of the debased ideas of the TSA about "security, safety, and peoples' privacy and health", they indeed seem to revel in the effect that is crippling industries tied together with air travel, tourism/airlines/hospitality, (themselves not even realizing they are part of the system they are killing duh).
    "More Rules", just another way to tighten the noose by killing a great source of income for everyday people in the US trying to make a living.

    It's actually really disgusting..maybe the day comes, when we can make a book compilation of the abusive and humiliating experiences with the TSA.

    I haven’t flown since right before 9/11. Now I don’t want to because I’m concerned I’d end up in jail. Knowing the TSA was justified and created because of the 9/11 lie and their purpose has nothing to do with preventing terrorism (scanners would be replaced by dogs if it was), I couldn’t stand for any of their abuse and harrassment.

    The ONLY reason they are able to do this is people continue to fly. If just half of fliers boycotted flying for 1 year it would all stop.
