Via Oleg: TSA behavior is causing more and more people to quit flying. Not only that but it is causing people who are nude models to be uncomfortable. The whole concept that one group of strangers is allowed to record intimate pictures of individuals without their consent while others can just don’t make sense. Not to mention the fact that the TSA has been known to hire sexual deviants. Back in 2004 I swore I would never fly again until The Security Theater is abolished. I know many others who will only fly commercially for business and tourism in the US has decreased due to the TSA.

Translation: “So we’re breaking the law and we would like to be allowed to continue to do such until such time as you actually issue your ruling saying we’re breaking the law.” The TSA Steals, Molests, and Abuses our American citizenry under color of law. They should be destroyed. If only there was a way.
