WASHINGTON (CBSDC) The Transportation Security Administration is once again the subject of national scrutiny, this time after aggressively screening a 7-year-old female passenger with cerebral palsy which caused her family to miss their flight....They make our lives completely difficult, her father, Dr. Joshua Frank, a Long Island pediatrician, told The Daily. Shes not a threat to national security.
Frank taped the encounter, which ended when a supervisor inspected her crutches and let them pass. But agents followed up and insisted upon doing a full inspection of Dina.
Ultimately, the family missed their flight.

The commerce clause in Article 1 Section 8 does empower congress to keep the commerce trade among the states regular. Politicians and the carefully selected judges will find a way to try to fit all expansion of power into this "commerce clause", and it is in no way what the founding fathers meant.
Having the national government set up shop on private property and get between me and a private company the what the TSA does is in no way defined by: To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;
I am not against security check points in airports, or arriving an hour early. I am against the national government performing this task. It should be done by the airline, the airport, or the state. The national government has once again overstepped their constitutional authority.
PS: Can you name me ONE (just ONE) terrorist threat or act they have uncovered/prevented?
I rest my case!!!
The media and government have hyped the sheeple into a frenzy. The public are afraid of terror. They're terrorized by terror. It is part of the whole new 'scared American' culture - scared of everything. Home of the brave - not anymore.
So here's the truth - here are the odds we live with (pulled from various sources):
Getting divorced: 1 in 3
Dying from heart disease: 1 in 3
An American woman developing
cancer: 1 in 3
Getting arthritis: 1 in 7
Victim of a serious crime: 1 in 20
Getting colon cancer: 1 in 20
Writing a New York Times best seller: 1 in 220
Dying from falling down: 1 in 246
Injury from using a chain saw: 1 in 4,464
Dying on a bicycle: 1 in 4,472
Injured by a toilet this year: 1 in 10,000
Winning an Academy Award: 1 in 11,500
Being murdered: 1 in 18,000
Dying in a car accident: 1 in 18,585
Being wrongly declared dead by a
Social Security data entry mistake: 1 in 23,483
Non-felon being murdered with a gun: 1 in 500,000
Being in a plane crash: 1 in 500,000
Dying from being bitten by a dog: 1 in 700,000
Death by lightning strike: 1 in 2.5 million
Dying from food poisoning: 1 in 3 million
Getting AIDS from heterosexual sex
without using a condom: 1 in 5 million
Being elected President: 1 in 10 million
Dying in a terrorist attack: 1 in 30 MILLION
When you look at the odds you can CLEARLY see that this is just a way for the power mad control freaks in government get rid of individual liberty, to destroy the constitution and this country, and to grope grandmas, war vets and children - plain and simple. Just look at the numbers.
And please, please - wake up!! Being an enabler of the destruction of America and her constitution is not a great legacy.
Make the founders proud and just please, wake up.
Here’s a shocker. The humanists are inhumane. Who would have ever guessed this??? Now we know why Christians of the “inflexible” variety, are their number one enemy.
The TSA isn't securing anyone. The only people they fool is the public. It certainly isn't fooling Al-Qa'ida.....it seems most terror attempts these days are thwarted by security concious passengers.......then Janet Nagatalino gets her ugly fat face on television to say "the system worked."
Evidently handicapped Jewish girls from Long Island pose a threat to national security.
I find it absolutely nauseating to read posts by bootlickers that defend TYRANNY of any sort. The whole DHS & TSA needs to be completely DISBANDED. The fact that anyone can defend ANY of it makes me want to puke.
But the liberals say it’s our fault because we created a culture of fear........
“lets blame the TSA.”
Sounds good to me.
I blame the TSA.
“You have to have one set of rules that apply equally, to everyone.”
No, actually, you don’t.
Those before us would have left the airports deserted monuments to governmental stupidity...
The real culprits are those who continue to pay for the priveledge of being patted down.
Short of revolution, vote with your feet.
“On the road again” ( Willy Nelson ) comes to mind.......
