TSA Shenanigans on my way to Liberty Forum

http://silverunderground.com

I approached the security checkpoint at the San Jose airport, sent all my personal property into the black hole of the x-ray conveyor belt and looked around for an opt-out line, but I didn’t see one. I asked a friendly TSA agent (we’ll call him “Tiny”) where the opt-out line was and he said, “You’re in the opt-out line.”

Confused I asked, ”Isn’t this the body scanner line?” and Agent Tiny told me, “Just step through the backscatter machine and they’ll screen you on the other side.”

Engineer petitions White House to build starship Enterprise

http://www.examiner.com

An engineer who created plans of working replica for the starship Enterprise has created a petition for NASA to consider the project.

The engineer suggests that the 3,000 foot-long ship be built in space and not land on the surface of any moon or planet so that it would never need to reach escape velocity. The ship would use on-board nuclear reactors, cutting down cost of fuelling the ship. He estimates his re-design of the Enterprise would be able to travel to the moon in a mere three days, and Mars in three months.

NJ Governor will not sign 'Seatbelts for Dogs Bill' calls it 'stupid'

http://www.courierpostonline.com

Christie recently said that a bill that would require pet owners to buckle their animals into seat belts while driving is “stupid,” and that he won’t sign it. No argument here. The bill is an egregious example of nanny-state governing, the product of legislators believing that most anything that crosses their mind can and should be turned into law.

TSA detains woman. "You're not a threat. It's just your attitude."

http://www.youtube.com

A woman was at the Houston airport in August for a layover. At the gate they were "testing" everyone's liquids. She drank her water instead of letting them test it, and was not allowed to board her flight. TSA tells her that she was kicked off her flight not because she was a threat, but because of her "attitude."

How much do we really hate the TSA?

Editor's note: The Traveler's Psyche is a five-week series focusing on travel scenarios that stir emotion. We're starting with frustration and will wind up on a happy note in June. Next week, we'll look at relationships forged on the road.

(CNN) -- It's the kind of thing that seems to happen every day to innocent grandmas, teens and toddlers when they pass through the airport: Savannah Barry, a 16-year-old Type 1 diabetic, uses an insulin pump that can malfunction when exposed to technology used in airport screenings.

$1B of TSA Nude Body Scanners Made Worthless By Blog

http://tsaoutofourpants.wordpress.com

This video is here to demonstrate that the TSA’s insistence that the nude body scanner program is effective and necessary is nothing but a fraud, just like their claims that the program is safe (radiation what?) and non-invasive (nude pictures who?). The scanners are now effectively worthless, as anyone can beat them with virtually no effort. The TSA has been provided this video in advance of it being made public to give them an opportunity to turn off the scanners and revert to the metal detectors. I personally believe they now have no choice but to turn them off.

TSA asks female passenger to ‘prove’ breast pump is real

https://www.examiner.com

This is beginning to get a little silly. If the lechers at the Transportation Security Administration are this eager to score a glimpse of a naked boob, they should just man up and order every female passenger to remove her top.
