TSA at the bus station
TSA at the bus station

Our first TSA post included this:

First they kill an American with impunity, next they demand the rite to sexually assault any who wish to travel. Initially by air, but then by coach, train, car or on foot. Remember, human nature is not all good. Circumstances can corrupt even the best of us. Not least here, here, or  here.

At the least, try and ensure the fourth turning is for good not ill.

Remember as with people, so with rights:

They came first for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.

Then they came for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up.

On a lighter note, sit back and listen to Comply with me. Hat tip Boing Boing

It’s just been updated with this:

Boing Boing have linked to a  vidoe of a sycophantic report of the TSA at work at the Greyhound bus station posted by Reason.com.

Another of those occasions we wish we were wrong. Other posts on the TSA and these can be found here.

UPDATE

Top 10 outrageous airport security incidents posted by Kate Midena. It’s good to see the mainstream Australian media moving on the issue. The post includes links to videos leaving absolutely no doubt about how appalling the incidents are.
