TSA: Pump your breasts first
TSA: Pump your breasts first

TSA to nursing mother: breast-pump can’t go through security unless you pump your breasts first: The agent told her the ice pack would not be allowed through security without milk in the bottles. Strand said the ice pack is specially made for the milk’s cooler and would not be easy to replace. “It really confuses me as to how an empty breast pump and cooler pack are a threat to national security and 20 minutes later, with milk, they no longer pose a threat to national security,” Strand said incredulously.  She asked if there was a private place she could pump and was told there was not. The agent suggested she go to the public bathroom. Her electric pump required an outlet and there were no outlets in the stalls, so she had to use one in the bathroom’s public area.

Of course suicidal terrorists are capable of having explosives implanted into their body.  It’s way past the time we accepted there is risk in life. That giving up liberty for security carries risks of its own. What would your parents have said 30 years ago if told this sort of thing would happen? Heck, what would you have said 15 years ago? We can track the decline of our culture by such methods. It makes clear how many things that once secured us have been subverted. How our cultural protections have been dismantled and a new set of enabling features established. It’s time to turn around, and demand our freedom back. Including our freedom to take risks and travel unmolested.
