My great friend Becky started this whole brushfire.

Wow, but the fur – and clothing, and screeners’ hands – are flying at airports, aren’t they? Yee haw! Christmas came early this year for those of us who hate the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), who have prayed for nine long years that the good Lord would smite it from the face of the earth, who can’t wait to take to the skies again once LaWanda and her porno-scanners roast in Hell.
Not that I want to look a gift-horse in the mouth (yet another reason the TSA will never employ me since its perverts eagerly peer everywhere), but might I ask what took so long? Those Americans willing to tolerate a stranger’s rubbing the back but not the front of his hands over your body, enlighten me: why does a warrantless search violate your liberty, dignity, and modesty now, but a year ago, as you stood coatless, shoeless, and spread-eagled, it was merely an inconvenience – or, far worse, the price we paid for “security” and a “free” society?
The TSA has eviscerated liberty, dignity, modesty and everything decent since Day One. And before 9/11, it was the FAA conducting the massacre: recall that its high-flying dictators mandated checkpoints for rifling our luggage and forcing us through magnetometers without warrants. Remember ticket agents interrogating us about whether we’d packed our own bags (“You know, ma’am, hmmm, I think I had the upstairs maid handle it this time”), again per the FAA’s imbecilic dictates? And no, none of this approaches the TSA’s utterly incredible sexual assaults, but anyone who understands government could have discerned the embryonic bureaucracy and its abuses lurking in the FAA’s stranglehold. A people that allows the State to impede their travels with silly questions and unconstitutional searches has no logical argument against such lunacy’s going naked.
