The simple fact of the matter is that these legislators are wimps.
There’s only one legal way to fight this crap – with your wallet, by snapping it closed.
I have long advocated that you simply not choose to fly. That’s one of the best ways to address what is ultimately a matter of the Airlines demanding (and getting) liability shields which they should not have, as they both have the most to lose from exploding airplanes (they’re both expensive and filled with passengers that have families who will sue) and the right to protect that investment.
The TSA is not about “safety”; we have TSA agents standing accused of sexual molestation (outside of their work, where it’s considered “legal” at present), theft and myriad other offenses. We also have the TSA now apparently providing “security theater” visions for such earth-shattering events as high school proms, where some kid might (horror of horrors!) smuggle in some alcohol.
There’s nothing like the jackboot of government on your neck, starting with a TSA agent reaching down your baby’s diaper to check for “things”, to set forth the principle that the government owns you – and thus has the right to do anything, including commit a sexual assault.
This abuse only stops when you, the American Citizen, demand it stop. And the best and loudest lawful way to do that is to withdraw your business from firms thatfund the jackals at the gate who were responsible for yesterday’s idiocy – in this case the Texas Legislature.
UPDATE from InfoWars.com: Republican Lt. Governor Killed TSA Bill For Obama
The man who was instrumental in working with the federal government to sabotage a bill that would have made TSA grope downs a felony in the state of Texas was Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, a former CIA agent and establishment insider considered to be the wealthiest man in Texas politics.
….Of The TSA, For The TSA, and By The TSA…
If HR [sic] 1937 were enacted, the federal government would likely seek an emergency stay of the statute. Unless or until such a stay were granted, TSA would likely be required to cancel any flight or series of flights for which it could not ensure the safety of passengers and crew.
Un-F***in’-Believable! Texas decides to pick a fight with the federal government and
the Gestapo TSA over sexual molestation of law-abiding Americans and then runs from it when the going gets tough! (InfoWars.com: Financial Terrorism: TSA Holds Texas Flights Hostage)
Since WHEN do Texans give a flying squirrel’s backend what the feds have to say about anything? WTF were Texas lawmakers thinking whilst begging ‘by your leave’ from the TSA and DOJ, and SINCE WHEN does the DOJ THREATEN an entire state (letter here.)
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO TEXAS, and when are Americans going to really say ‘ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!’ I still say that when we, as Americans, stop flying enmasse, the airlines will be FORCED to clean this sh** up! Money talks and bullshit walks…stop wearing your chains so comfortably!!!!
An astounding Department of Justice threat to cancel airline flights to and from Texas, in addition to underhanded lobbying by TSA representatives, has killed efforts in the state to pass HB 1937, a bill that would have made invasive pat downs by TSA agents a felony.
HB 1937, a bill that would have made it “A criminal act for security personnel to touch a person’s private areas without probable cause as a condition of travel or as a condition of entry into a public place,” was headed for an imminent Senate vote in Texas having already passed the House unanimously 138-0, before the federal government stepped in to nix the legislation.
In a letter sent to Texas lawmakers, including to Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, Speaker Joe Straus, the House Clerk, and the Senate Secretary, U.S. Attorney John E. Murphy threatened to cripple the airline industry in the state if legislators did not back down.
“If HR [sic] 1937 were enacted, the federal government would likely seek an emergency stay of the statute,” Murphy wrote. “Unless or until such a stay were granted, TSA would likely be required to cancel any flight or series of flights for which it could not ensure the safety of passengers and crew.”
“We urge that you consider the ramifications of this bill before casting your vote,” Murphy added.
The fact that Murphy can’t even get the name of the bill correct is almost as disconcerting as the rampant mafia-like attitude of the DOJ in using de facto economic terrorism to shoot down the legislation.
Following a fiery debate in the Texas House last night, Senate sponsor Dan Patrick (R-Houston) pulled the bill, remarking that TSA representatives had been “lobbying” the Texas Senate in an effort to mothball the legislation.
“I will pull HB 1937 down, but I will stand for Liberty in the state of Texas,” Patrick said.
