    Sounds like, in my opinion, something that really needs to be looked at, and tightened up - the definition, that is.
    I'm not addressing that. I'm addressing what is.

    Yes, standing up for yourself is such a rude thing to do.
    These people are just trying to do their jobs. This guy just wanted to subvert them doing their jobs for the sake of grandstanding. He's an idiot.

    Granted, it depends on how you go about it, but slowing down the process in of itself can't reasonably, IMO, be a reasonable gauge of interference - how about the TSA being able to hold you for 30 minutes or more [or so they claim] if you opt out of the body scanners for a patdown?
    The operative words in your statement are "in my opinion."

    Ya' gotta go along to get along. Some people just choose to go through life the hard way. Maybe he'll grow up.

    TSA itself interferes and slows the process for every single traveler. At this point, I'd rather take the low probability chance there's a terrorist on the plane than to be photographed naked by the government for some sort of added "security" which doesn't exist and won't ultimately help. While there were reasonable things the government could have done to increase airport security, they are now well beyond that point. There is no call for the aggressive and invasive techniques the government now wields against its own people when attempting to fly.

    TSA's the law. Does it make us safer? Don't know. But it's the law. You would rather take a chance that some idiot has explosives in his underwear or his shoes than be scanned? Tell your Congressman. Or don't fly. You have options. But don't be fightin' people who are just trying to do their jobs.

    Those people trying to "just do their jobs" are the militant arm of the government used against the People. We very much have every right and duty to fight the people who move to support intrusive and abusive government techniques against the People at large. The government isn't the end all say all, it is restricted in what it is supposed to be able to do; particularly when the rights of the individual are at stake. Of course I would take the chance that some idiot had explosives in his shoes. As I recall, that guy made it on the plane but couldn't detonate the "bomb". And it happened how many times? How many flights is that? What is the probability of it happening? Yeah...that's what I thought. Some people have lost all reason when it comes to terrorists. They hear the name and go wet themselves like some scared 7 year old school girl. But I'm not beholden to their stupidity, and when you really look at the situation and see the statistics; it's impossible for the rational person to excuse these aggressive and intrusive techniques now wielded against the people; wielded with the very power and sovereignty of the People.

    The TSA is a joke, it does very little now except for make long lines and view you naked at their pleasure. The government, its agencies, and its goons are never above reproach by the People.

    How was this guy fighting them? He refused to go through their security protocols and was more than happy to leave. He was even willing to pay for the ticket.

    Hey! Don't question the government! Just do everything it tells you to do with no protest. Remember, the government is here to protect us from all the little nasties in the world. How dare you think you have the right to protest or leave an area where heavy handed techniques are used against your person! That guy over there violating your rights....he's just doing his job. So shut up, stand in line, and wait your turn to be imaged naked for the sake of security!

    Re: TSA ejects Oceanside man from airport for refusing security check

    I'm glad I won't be flying any time soon. Nothing like facing the choice between having my wife and four-year-old daughter photographed naked so some TSA slob can jack off to it later, or allowing them to be felt up by some TSA slob so he can jack off to it later. **** that noise.

    I bet Osama bin Laden is laughing his ass off at this, by the way.
