What is going on in this country? I see that TSA and Secretary Napolitano are being sued for doing their jobs. One-time wrestler and former-Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura has filed a law suit for screening him at airports as a violation of his Fourth Amendment rights.
I guess the bombing in Moscow went un-noticed by some people, but we do not live in the same world we did when I was a child. Things are constantly changing; sadly there are those who may not want change or sadder are those who use progress against us. Planes were designed to move people and goods nearly immediately anywhere in the world; people have now used them as weapons.
It is vital that our law enforcement people are given all the support they need to protect Americans and actually our way of life. This country was founded on the principle of freedoms by the people and for the people. To ensure that those freedoms are preserved for all Americans throughout eternity, many men and women (military and law enforcement) have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect each and every freedom.
TSA and all of the men and women of DHS perform their jobs everyday to protect against the ever-changing threats and type of ways that dastardly people will use to harm us and disrupt our way of life and freedoms. Who are we kidding, and why are we wasting more tax payer money with these crazy lawsuits when people are risking their lives to protect us. I can say that there is not one solitary TSA screener, or any cop in DHS, who wakes up every morning thinking “who can I piss off today?” No, in fact, they wake up each morning knowing that they themselves could be in harms-way and have to catch the next shoe- or underwear-bomber who intends to kill someone.
Maybe if we just did away with clothing altogether (there would be no place to hide explosives and, the screeners would not have to perform any added checks). Even if the new scanners were able to give that level of clarity, it is better than seeing everyone at the airport in their birthday suits.
Funny, for a person who made a living running around without a shirt on TV and in movies, why would he be so concerned about someone screening him? I too do not look like I used to, but if it keeps America safe, then screen away. In my case, I would feel sorry for the screener who had to look at me.
