Fuck the TSA. - Tulgey Wood
Fuck the TSA.|
Thank you for standing up for people's rights. This makes me ill. The TSA is so un-American for the country I grew up believing in.
[I pause my typing for 90 seconds while I avoid puking on my keyboard.]
Other than contributing to the ACLU, the EFF, and calling my senators and congresspeople every time this comes up I don't know what to do. The next generation it will just get worse, because they've grown up under constant surveillance and never known anything different. We have achieved nanny-state, and it's only getting worse from here.
The feeling of powerlessness is so infuriating. The TSA has absolutely no incentive to change. I can complain to them about my treatment at the hands of Stso. Parker, but so what? Nothing will happen to her, I'm sure, and nothing will happen to the TSA.
I plan to write to both California senators, as well as the ones in Hawaii, since this affects tourism, and right now I'm not especially keen on going back. Other than that I'm at a loss.
You are absolutely right: it is un-American. It's a police state. It's sick. This should not be normal.

You are NOT powerless. Don't forget that. Maybe in that one instance for that period of time, you were not able to control the outcome. But don't stop fighting it. There are many, many others of us out there that are fighting this battle. And @ Beth, teach your children. Talk about it. Teach them the Constitution. Teach them their rights as Americans. Instill in them good reasoning powers. Support them when they stand up to injustice. My generation really dropped the ball. The only thing I've been able to do at this point is teach my children well, fight the system as best I can, and trust and hope that there are millions of others like me that are doing the same thing. The greatest thing we can give our children is information and teach them to question. Information is power.
