Dana Loesch

@DLoesch

Chris just set off TSA "alarm." Additional "screenings" required. Unreal. 10 Jun 12

You can thank George Bush for opening the door to the police state when he created the department of homeland security.

Is that a new Liberal trick? Spray your enemies with nitrates so they attract TSA attention?

Or was that just the fertilizer that was being distributed by speakers at the Netroots convention?

Yes, he did it single-handedly without even input from the DemonRats on having them be union employees.

Yes, I blame Bush!

Bush never thought this would be used primarily against conservative citizens... Does the TSA even bother with Arabs? Or are they too PC to check them?

An entity which corrodes anything that it touches... federal, state or local.

Yeah... We tried to warn folks about that.

"It's for security" we were told.

"It won't get that expansive" they assured us.

"You are just being paranoid" they insinuated.

"What have you got to hide?" we were asked.

I'd like to stand face-to-face with a few of those folks right now. I have a few choice things to say to them...

John Madden figured this method of travel out long ago. He won’t fly. If this continues, unless going off continent it would be best to avoid flying, ever! Of course, then the fedzilla will just start this same harrassment in all other areas of travel ... oh wait!

Yon cannot blame Bush for the status of TSA today. Remember who is in charge now? Napalitano from New Mexico is in charge and these are her orders for Obama to shut down air travel and make the airlines go bankrupt.

I hear a lot of whining, but I don't see anyone doing anything. Most do a lot of bitching, but continue to fly, continue to allow these thugs and perverts to molest your children, daughters, wives and mothers and yet you continue to willing fly so that these perverts can cop their feel and get their jollies. The quickest way to put an end to this is to STOP flying! I stopped flying 4 years ago after they put my wife through HELL because she was confined to a wheelchair at the time. STOP flying if you really want this to stop otherwise stop your bitching. Do you think for one moment the Government would allow the airlines to go belly up and that's what would happen with just a 30 day boycott of all unnecessary flying.

TSA's focus changed after the so-called flying Imams raised heck after causing a disruption on a flight and then got questioned when they landed. TSA seems to have had a hznds-off policy towards Muslims ever since.

I stopped flying after a flight last year. First of all, it was on American Express, which means we were packed in like sardines. Then my wife and I had to get a lecture from a woman because my wife’s hand lotion was more than the limited ounces allowed. Now, keep in mind the tube said one more ounces that are allowed but it was only half full. I guess that means you can’t carry an empty bottle if the maximan contents listed on the bottle is more than the TSA allows.

Second, I don’t need some dummy lectering me about flying rules. Just take the damned expensive hand lotion home with and let me get on the airplane.

About this time they started the x-ray scanning and that was the end of my flying days.

He was just the middle man in the klintoon-obama take over. Big Ears screwed up too much for TPB so the Bilderbergers are going for Mittens. I see they are pushing Daniels for V/P. Let's see how this plays out. Never forget TPB always sets the 2 prez nominees & the sheeple run like Pavlov's dogs to vote for the lesser of 2 evils.

I moved 1500 miles away to keep my job, and no longer fly due to this tsa nonsense.

Homeland Security doesn’t have to give any reasons for putting folks on a no fly list or terrorist list, do they? What is to keep them from blacklisting minor conservative bloggers and working up to more substantial ones? We have alternative media but what about alternative transportation? Even the election of Romney as president might not help because he, like all Republican presidents, won’t do a thing about getting rid of an agency that already exists and won’t do a thing about the personnel in those agencies.

Tom Ridge's DHS is NOT Janet Napolitano’s DHS

You cannot credibly go back over a decade to the unprecedented chaos after the 911 attack and double guess George Bush on what he should have done.

He restructured our national security establishment based on the best advice of the times (too much by and to appease democrats unfortunately), to deter or deal with a follow -on attack, possibly a WMD attack, based on intelligence provided at that time

Last month, my 79-year-old cousin and I flew to California together. We both are overly-white with blue eyes, one with grey hair and one blonde. We’re both under 5’ tall and semi-disabled. BOTH of us supposedly set off alarms and were subjected to additional screening, including obscene patdowns and swabbing! Obviously, neither of us were terrorists or capable of doing anyone any harm. I have never seen any Arab-looking people put through these humiliations, especially women in hijabs or burkas! WHY? What is the point of any of this? My personal opinion is to get us used to being sheep, to “prepare” us for what’s coming. Maybe I’m crazy, but it sure isn’t for our security!

Last time I flew, the TSA was on a granny watch that day.
Every older woman was pulled out for extra screening.
They pulled a wheelchair bound woman out and gave her the search of her life. Older black woman.
The head of the team there was a very beligerant goon.
I stood there after clearing security and watched the foolishness, until I was told to move on or I would be arrested.

During all this, no muslims were looked at or received any level of harrassment that the rest of did.

This is on purpose.

Forgot to say, my cousin was also in a wheelchair! I was just biting my tongue the whole time. The agent who pulled me aside had the gall to say, “I’m here to HELP you!” I did spit out, “No, you’re not.” But after that, I kept my thoughts to myself.

Establishing a new governmental department that depends on the person not the process is the dumbest thing one can do. Bush did more harm for liberty than he did good there is no arguing that from my perspective. As he traded free markets for tarp he traded our liberty for his notion of security

Next to Nixon he ballooned government departments like no other. It is completely reasonable to judge past decisions. Do I think his intent was bad... No he was just biased for security not liberty.

They have expanded beyond the airport now.

Wait till they declare all interstates their exclusive domain and if any state troopers or local police want to work on it, they have to become part of the Federal Task Force.

Previous post was on the wrong thread.

I don’t know why they do it. The last three times my wife flew (before they started making you take your shoes off) they would make her take hers off. And everytime she was wearing sandals.

Maybe you’re right. They’re seeing just how much we’ll put up with. And sadly, most people in this country will say “I’m more than happy to put up with it as long as I know my plane won’t be hi-jacked.” The thing is, TSA has never stopped one hi-jacking.
