Is TSA getting out of order with their searches or this all just media over-sensitivity?
So, it's all over the news these days...'TSA is groping me!!' People are taking videos and recordings on their cell phones, lawsuits are being filed, etc, etc. Is there something new going on here, or is the media blowing this out of proportion?
The reason the TSA uses these devices is not for our protection, but because Rapiscan Systems wanted a billion-dollar contract to sell these devices to the TSA. The TSA Director was the subject of a lobbying initiative. And that's how our government works. It's also the #1 reason why our government is so expensive.
The TSA is out of order. The fourth amendment of the US Constitution prohibits unlawful search or seizure without a warrant or probable cause. An old lady taking a ride on an airplane does not constitute "probable cause". But the law is somewhat flexible. Putting our personal items through a metal detector is acceptable. Removing our shoes is stupid, but I'll let that slide as well. Causing security to take twice as long just so people can stand in front of a backscatter X-ray is not acceptable. TSA personnel like these devices is because most are barely-literate perverts who think they will get to look at naked ladies. (Rapiscan is a fitting name) The pat-downs sometimes take a long time and sometimes do not. I have only seen female TSA guards pat down female passengers.
I believe it is just media over sensitivity. It’s plain and simple we either want to be safe while flying or we don’t. Take the full body scan or let them pat you down if you have nothing to hide. The pictures I’ve seen online and on the news don’t show anything really. The media makes it sound as if your being photographed naked, or sexually molested. But I bet if another disaster like 9-11 happens they will be crying about how TSA didn’t do enough. It’s simple stop crying or stop flying.
check out this video of a young boy being strip searched in the middle of air traffic. RIDICULOUS. Made me SICK.

Do you think that the TSA is violating the citizen's Fourth Amendments Rights?I just heard the Diane Rehm show where I learned the New York airports will not allow the scanners. I also found a super new animated video which shows how the people are responding. This has truly caused a powerful...

I thought that the order of keywords in a Title did not matter and likewise that the order of keywords entered for a Google Search did not matter. However when you do a search for - Green Tea Health Benefits (A) - and for - Health Benefits of Green Tea (B) - both without quotes the results are...

I found a name that first, last has 1 million searches and full green bar. But in reverse order last, first, there are 1 million searches but half the green bar. If I were able to write an article with the name in last, first order, would I have better chances of the 1 million searches?
