TSA still assaulting, abusing passengers - so what else is new?

The Arizona Republic filed a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request, and guess what they found out? That the TSA abuses people at the checkpoint.

Gee, I'm shocked.

The newspaper wanted documentation, which is reasonable. It's for the purpose of documentation that I've been compiling a Master List of TSA Crimes and Abuses for the past four years. It contains thousands of accounts of abuse. Not that it makes any difference.

Our legislators don't care, our courts don't care, and millions of United Sheeple of America don't care. The rallying cry, as ever, is "Just get me to my flight on time!"

Along with its corollary, "Who cares if other people get abused? As long as it doesn't happen to me!"

The Arizona Republic found that breast prostheses of cancer survivors are a favorite toy for TSA clerks. The clerks enjoy humiliating women in public -- and in private -- by forcing them to remove their breast prostheses. They also enjoy barking and screaming at people, especially old or infirm people.

But hey, no problem -- after all, if implants might be explosive, why not breast prostheses? Anything For Safety!
