Breaking: Former Gov. Ventura Will No Longer Fly Due to Abuse He’s Endured at Hands of TSA
of course the former governor of minnesota, who must know a few holds himself, isn't really entitled to his own feelings, here
it's already been affirmed declaratively
and by no less a source than...
well, i can't quite remember who
but we've all been told (and told and told) that this hyperbolic hysterical has NOT been FONDLED
nor has anyone else
even the dozen or so PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS who are SUING the too touchy tsa for, it must be, some other reason
either way, they have NO RIGHT to their umbrage
why, you can look it up---in the DICTIONARY!
The guy was clearly looking for trouble so I didn't really take issue with it until they escorted him from the screening area and then promised to fine him for leaving same screening area. That's an example of Government double-speak that should never be allowed to stand.
The real problem though - if he hadn't recorded this whole incident, he would have no choice but to pay an $11,000 fine.

have you met virginia?
mcdonnell won by EIGHTEEN a year ago, on tsunami tuesday we took THREE house seats, came within 500 of a 4th (gerald connolly, fairfax, N VA, dc burbs, probably the most important house district in the nation), we dominate the commonwealth's house (oldest parliamentary body in the western hemisphere), 59 to 39...
but what does webb know?
it's already been decided
no FONDLE means NOTHING THERE
the tsa is gonna have to back down on this, just like the mosque (remember the mosque?), just like moving ksm to manhattan, just like closing gitmo, just like the fox news war, comprehensive immigration reform, ending rendition and detention and dadt, taxing the rich, pulling out of afghanistan next july, cutting the deficit in half, capping unemployment at 8%...
just a buncha lame ducks

Homeland Security chairman to TSA: 'Reconsider' pat-downs - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room
still sitting chairman of house homeland security bennie thompson and member sheila jackson lee have written a letter to pistole (the poser/posters who submit the most on this thread don't even know who that is, which, really, is an affront to those of us who do)...
have written a letter to pistole asking him to "reconsider" these "intrusive pat downs"
and hurry, urged the chair and ms lee, as thanksgiving is "typically the busiest travel time of the year"
they're concerned, their letter spells out, that the screenings and intrusive pat downs used by tsa "run afoul of privacy and civil liberties"
note: to those of you who see yourselves as somehow engaged in some kinda "debate" with some other forum "personality" over some hot topic, germaine or rather having to do with the definitions of common words, you may some day come to see that the ultimate "winners" and "losers" of these petty little piss contests you're so devoted to are gonna be determined not by your 60 second flashes of association but by TOMORROW'S HEADLINES
like gravity, i can't believe i'd ever have to point out something so obvious
such awareness is just a part of maturity, it comes with the territory
in other words, you simply have got to learn to see a move ahead
Really? So I can go to an Airport, and just skip the inspection station all together? That's great! How do you do that? See Joe, the control starts the second you buy that ticket when they feel that they can tell you to do anything as a prerequisite to your boarding that plane. Search you? control. Search your bags? control. Walk through a metal detector? control. See you naked? Control. Feel your junk? control. And all against the 4th amendment.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
