TSA Detains Rand Paul And Other Airport Scandals - January 23rd 2012, 10:46 PM

http://www.thedailybeast.com/article...-scandals.html


1. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky) is a libertarian who believes in limited government intervention. So it’s no surprise that he refused a TSA pat-down in a Nashville, Tenn. airport today, even after an “anomaly” with the body scanner. His dad, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), who is running for president, posted on his Facebook page that Rand asked to be scanned a second time but the agency rejected the offer. The senator was then reportedly detained for failing to comply with agents.

2. The TSA stumbled into Cupcake Gate last December when an agent confiscated a passenger’s frosted snack at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas. The cupcake’s frosting was too similar to a gel and thus violated the TSA’s liquid restrictions. After a minor media firestorm, a TSA spokesman said that passengers are, in fact, allowed to bring cupcakes on flights.

3. A Long Island grandmother alleged that TSA agents at JFK International Airport strip-searched her. Lenore Zimmerman, 85, said she asked to forgo the body scanner because of her defibrillator, but says she was then whisked into a room where two agents undressed her. At the time, the TSA claimed it did not strip-search, but later admitted wrongdoing.


4. Eighty-nine-year-old Ruth Sherman was also at Kennedy airport when she was reportedly told to pull down her pants and show her colostomy bag to screeners. The TSA said she was never asked to remove her clothing, but Sherman strongly disputes their claims. “They asked me to pull my sweatpants down, and now they’re not telling you the truth,” said Sherman, who uses a wheelchair.

5. It’s commonplace for a traveler to find a note in her luggage, informing her that it has been inspected. But blogger Jill Filipovic got a little something extra on her note when she opened up her suitcase after a flight from Newark to Dublin, Ireland. Someone wrote GET YOUR FREAK ON GIRL after finding a “personal item” in her bag. The TSA initially said there was no evidence suggesting one of its agents left the message, but later said it found the employee who did it and removed the person from screening duties.

6. File this under unfortunate. Back in June, TSA officials forced an elderly woman to remove her adult diaper for screening. The 95-year-old cancer patient was patted down by officials when they found something “wet” and “firm, ” and she had to walk through the airport without underwear, according to family members. The TSA defended its agents, saying they followed protocol.

7. Could that six-year-old waiting in the security line be a terrorist? Sometimes the TSA thinks so. The agency has come under fire for patting down children. Perhaps the most famous example is the video a bystander shot of a young boy at the Salt Lake City airport in Nov. 2010. The TSA agents selected the boy for additional screening after he set off a metal detector. When the boy wouldn’t keep his arms raised for the pat-down, his frustrated father removed his shirt and gave it to the agents to inspect.





Sad thing is your more likely to die from gangs like Ms13 Crips, Latin kings or any other gang

I only take my dick out or pull my pants down if I want to:

1. Relieve myself
2. Take a shit
3. Jack off

If the TSA ever asks me to pull my pants down for having too much icing on a chocolate bar or something... or for having too much cream in my coffee, I will likely do one of those things. Most likely the first. I'm talking for real. To take a shit would be messy without toilet paper, plus I only do once a day and usually in the morning. And jacking off... I'm just not the type to jack off with some perverted males standing around in the same room as me.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.
