Keeping the Friendly Skies Safe From Nonagenarians

Once again, our wonderful “you can’t professionalize unless you federalize” Transport Sturm Abteilung strikes a blow for freedom, safety and the American way by ripping the Depends off of a 95-year-old leukemia patient in a wheelchair (h/t LC & IB Bill Quick):

Jean Weber of Destin filed a complaint with the Department of Homeland Security after her 95-year-old mother was detained and extensively searched last Saturday while trying to board a plane to fly to Michigan to be with family members during the final stages of her battle with leukemia.

Note that the one she had on was soiled and she didn’t have a replacement after her daughter had been forced to take the one she was wearing off.

Insert usual: “TSA goons are good, decent people who are only follovink orderz and how were they to know what went down in Auschwitz?” here…

As to ourself: Come the revolution, those “good, decent people” and in particular the fascists making those orders will be particularly fun to stand against the wall before we hose them down with automatic weapons fire.

Thatisall.

I regard the TSA policies as the natural progeny of the moronic “zero tolerance” policies that have been plaguing our schools for years. No thinking, no situational analyses; instead, we must follow the orders mostest what. And, I suspect these assclowns get bonuses for harassing the elderly, the infirm, or the very young. And THIS is the mindset that liberals… Read more »

I

suggest an old fashioned navy hanging, where the prisoner is hauled into the air by his neck.

Kinda like current practice in the Mullahcratic Republic of Ahmajinnistan–using cranes.

I am soooo looking forward to the day these TSA goons try setting up shop in one of the local shopping malls and try to grope some gangbangers gal. I would cheer said gangbanger on…go for it, Bro’..dance on his or her face, .with my blessing. Then their uniforms become targets……….as usual, TSA goons flee behind a rule book, the… Read more »

While I find the TSAs actions totally reprehensible, I find it equally reprehensible that they were travelling without a spare Depends (or two). Every parent who has flown with a diaper-age baby knows to bring LOTS of extras. Was that poor elderly mother supposed to sit in her own poop for the duration of the flight? And what of the… Read more »

The only genuine concern government has about this issue is the fact that disposable diapers and modern gun powders are both nitrocellulose. But that is a lame excuse anyway. Smokeless powders are not explosives. They are propellants. It’s way beyond uncalled for. We ought to find out where these TSA sturmgefreiters live and picket their houses.

While I applaud the reactions by the good people on this blog I must also ask some questions. What did you think was going to happen when they started the Department of Homeland Security? What did you think was going to be the result of the passing of the Patriot Act? I remember that when I made the statement on… Read more »

These are the same drones that refuse to implement the one measure that’s actually been demonstrated to improve airline security–behavioral profiling–but seem to take it as revealed truth that groping six-year-olds and strip-searching incontinent, wheelchair-bound senior citizens is somehow keeping the flying public safe. It’s been nice, living in Asia for a number of years, where I could fly and… Read more »

Every one of those TSA pukes needs at least 2 good hard blows to the head every day with at least an 18″ piece of 1″ diameter steel bar, baseball bats with rusty, germ-ridden protruding nails are a very acceptable instrument as well. Anyone wanna bet that a suspicious looking muslim with a one way ticket would just sail right… Read more »

Southern Libertarian, The Patriot Act was signed a month after Sept 11, 2001. So, in answer your question of what I thought would happen — I didn’t know. Prior to Sept. 11, 2001, I was apolitical; in other words, a schmuck. It took me years to piece together what was going on in this country. In addition, during his first… Read more »

And the airlines wonder why they’re bleeding money and flying with empty seats. As a retired air traffic controller, and knowing a little inside-the-scenes stuff about who the FAA hires these days, I don’t fly anymore. That’s another story… But if you want to fly: Put six to ten people together. CHARTER is the way to go. Fly on YOUR… Read more »

Sir M is absolutely correct!!! When I first flew on a chartered/private jet….no security, no TSA, no baggage check in…and I could have carried my sidearm had I known I could! (On my first one!) :em01:

I already refuse to fly because of the TSA; but, this sounds like a story that many Americans might want to hear. :em06:

Sir M,
Unbelievable! Yet our government seems to think that the greatest dangers to the unfriendly skies are incontinent old-folks and six year old girls.
