http://www.pixiq.com

The so-called “sovereign citizens” movement — men and women who believe they are exempt from most state and federal laws, regulations and tax codes — is spreading like a prairie fire.

TSA promises $10,000 fine for refusing sexual assault

http://www.thepeoplesvoice.org

At the San Diego International Airport yesterday, about one-fifth of the travelers were selected for sexual assault by transportation security agents.

Under 49 CFR Sec.s 1540.105 and 1540.107, as summarized in these 2004 TSA Sanction Guidelines, apparently TSA has Congressional support to fine people for refusing to submit to molestation.
