Mission Creep at TSA

Many government agencies start out "small" and over time, with what some refer to as the "ratchet effect," grow into behemoths. One such alphabet .gov agency is TSA - Transportation Security Administration - protects the nation's transportation systems to ensure freedom of movement for people and commerce," or so says their website.

They grope, fondle and touch away our liberty all the while they say they give us "freedom of movement."  No, we lost our freedom of movement. Now we are subject to warrantless inspecting, radiating, delays and possible arrest if we refuse to submit, and attempts at intimidation. Day-byday they wax bolder in their arrogance and tyranny. These goons don't even care that they are creating an intolerable environment which they themselves and their children will have to endure.

This police state alphabet agency started their groping and radiating at airports and has now moved onto virtually every transportation mode in the United States.

"But more and more, they seem to involve giving airport-style pat-downs and screenings of unsuspecting passengers at bus terminals, ferries, and even subways."
