Re: I am losing my friends over the TSA "enhanced patdowns"
yea i havent flown since this started....i dont want to go through the dna shredding machines. and i dont want to be molested either. I dont care about the nakedness of the scanner, but those waves are not healthy. Those idiots calibrating and running the machines dont sweeten the deal either.

sucks but ill just stay home, drive or take a bus/train.

if i had to fly for some reason id probably choose to be molested over the cell shredders.

there is a reason you are losing your friends.

They realized how unreasonable you are.

Get over yourself. If you dont want to do the pat down, dont fly. You dont have a right to take a plane, so if you dont like it, TOO FUCKING BAD.

Perhaps you can go cry me a fucking river now, whiney.

Re: I am losing my friends over the TSA "enhanced patdowns"
...
Thank you, friend. I will ponder your advice. Here's where I'm at right now: The terrorist fed wins everytime I give money to the airlines and sacrifice my dignity to the security procedures. I feel that buying a plane ticket is a proxy for saying, "I'm okay with this" when that could not be further from the truth.

I realize most people will be good sheep and go along but I don't want to fall into that group. I realize it won't make any difference to the Fed or the airlines but it makes a difference in my soul. Nearly every aspect of the MIC takeover of our once great country is out of my control except this. Flying or not is one thing I can control and one concrete way I can say, "I will not submit to this madness."

And then there's the slippery slope issue. If this okay, then what next? Where do we draw the line?

I do appreciate your perspective and will carefully consider anything else you write. I'm totally isolated from many of my friends and all of my family and it fucking blows.

Thanks.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1239044



I know what you mean... this war on terrorism feels alot like war against regular people.

Also, I hate the feeling that if I stood up to the TSA...I would be made an example, also there is a good chance any regular fliers that witness such thing would more than likely allow TSA to make an example out of you.. It's pretty sad...

and like you said, ANY act of terrorism would be a boon, for that organization, defense related industries, and justification for tighter restrictions....it's like a really bad one-way ratchet effect, always tightening.


Anyway, it feels like a big false cry to "save us from our ourselves!"...

I'm not flying either and my friend refuses to believe it. I went on trips with her in the past and now she wants to go to Florida with me. I told her emphatically I was not going to fly anymore. But she still brings up the trip like it's an option for me.

I've gotten in arguments as well. You gotta have boundaries in this life, things that you stand up for. Otherwise you fall into the mindless category.

Re: I am losing my friends over the TSA "enhanced patdowns"
I do know what you mean, OP. First, realize if they don't care about 9/11 they wont care about any of it, because they are still convinced Washington is good.

They watch the TV and believe

Hitler = bad
Washington = good

Nope, they're all bad.

GM, Ford and IBM supported te Nazi effort. Te banks, too. Two sides of the same coin to bring about world government.

Once real history is exposed then they understand that 9/11 was one act in a long history of the same conspiracy that began as early as 1776 - ILLUMINATI.

History is manipulated and blame shifted all the time. This is the only way Washington keeps support.

Here is some good advice from the Talmud Jmmanuel:

10. "Truly, I say to you: Do not throw your consciousness-related treasure into the dirt and do not waste it on the
unworthy, because they will not thank you and will tear you apart, for their understanding is small and their consciousness is weak.

Re: I am losing my friends over the TSA "enhanced patdowns"
I've flown and I didn't have a pat down ever. You're kind of over reacting. That shit was a test, to how much they could get away with ad since the 30,000 law suits they have backed way down.

At Burbank, where I will fly out of later this month, they don't even have body scanners. They tested them there and I went through it, but it was like two years ago.

They don't have them anymore. Most of the fliers from that airport are commuters. They fly to Vegas or Phoenix and back.

Use Burbank if you're going to LA and want to avoid LAX, that's the shittiest airport in the West, IMO.

Re: I am losing my friends over the TSA "enhanced patdowns"
I'm with you.

My husband thinks I'm an evil person for so horribly denying my poor dear child a trip to Disney at age 4.

I mean, I don't want her assaulted by strangers and thus she's a DEPRIVED CHILD.

wall

Not wanting her to be groped and terrorized is depriving her and "nutty," but being perfectly fine with her being groped by a stranger is "normal."

You're not alone, for what it's worth.

Oh, and I would make a point of calling the airlines and the places you might have stayed or visited and TELLING THEM why you aren't.

I wrote to Disney to tell them.

If we all did this, they'd start putting pressure on the gov. to get this crap out of there.

You and I have little power alone, that's true. But if we talk with our wallets... the ones with the power (corporations) WILL start speaking. THAT is when change happens.

But why is this even a controversial topic? Anyone grounded in fact knows the Amsterdam-Detroit underwear bomber (the stated reason for the new procedures) bypassed security altogether with the help of government agents yet the masses must submit their child to a hired goon for genital fondling.

In what universe is it unacceptable to speak out against this abomination? I'm tired of keeping my mouth shut so as not to upset all the sleepwalkers living in their world of obvious lies.

It didn't take the new scanners and crotch groping by idiots to get me to quit flying in the US. I quit right after 9/11 and the patriot act. Didn't fly again until 2006 when I took a plane out of the US and haven't been back since.

There may be a million people in the US with the courage to stand up for what they believe in, but there are over 300 million who have no personal courage whatsoever.

I can understand your outrage and principled stand against flying, but it is kind of like the old saying, "cutting off your nose to spite your face".

I spent Christmas by myself had to pass up a fun NYC trip with my best friend who lives in London.

The most direct example of this conflict came when I casually brought up the new procedures to my friend's new girlfriend who up to this point I was totally cool with.

I asked her how she felt about it and we got into a HUGE fight. I couldn't believe it. She got really defensive - told me she was molested as a child - and "how dare" I compare the TSA procedures with actual molestation or rape. I was incredulous. So because her daddy touched her in naughty places its okay for government agents to do the same to little kids? She portrayed me as a hysterical idiot for having a problem with government goons sticking their hands inside men, women, and children's underwear.

I don't talk to her anymore and its causing a rift between myself and my friend (her boyfriend). It sounds like a silly thing to walk away from somebody over but it INFURIATES me. I can't see any other point of view other than she is a fascist boot-licker and I can't believe my friend was dating her.

The U.S. government attacked its' citizens on 911. The "underwear bomber" in Detroit on Christmas morning was escorted around the security gates by government agents.

This is actually the intent.

TSA is the groundwork of Agenda 21 to shut down transportation nationwide and herd people into hives living in cities. It's all laid out.

First they are going to shut down air travel in stages, first by humiliating passengers with pat downs and body scans which will progressively become more aggressive until people, like you, will avoid flying. Then when enough people stop flying, they will say OK, no one can fly at all without explicit permission, and then you will have to get paperwork, this will be the start of the internal passport system which they are already talking about.

The same thing will be done on buses, trains and highways.

Eventually people will be stuck and not able to travel anywhere. I believe they hired some top Ruskie from the KGB of Former Soviet Union to consult on all this shit, so they could employ the same system they had over there in the US.
