From a Parent

"We spend my child's whole life telling him that only mom, dad and a doctor can touch you in your private area, and now we have to add TSA agent and that's just wrong," he told Reuters. "At some point the terrorists have won."

More from Reuters. With the Thanksgiving travel season coming up, do you really want to put up with this?! If not, contact your elected representatives, the airlines, and your local police chief (the state laws against sexual assault are still on the books, why aren't they enforcing them?).

If you would like a sample letter, click here.

The story says Congress is going to hold hearings next week. The sooner you contact them, the more likely they are to put a stop to this.

The reason I have spent so much time on this topic is that the new procedures just went into effect (November 1) and the Thanksgiving travel period is imminent. According to published reports, Thanksgiving is the busiest air travel period. I don't want our readers stumbling into this unknowingly. Better still, lets hope Congress is successful next week and it is a non-issue by then.

  1. A government control issue, so many in the government have the notion they are are out keepers and can do as they please. There is a whole mindset out there that has serious control issues. This is but one example of the government controlling "Their Population."
    This one happens to be up close and personal and many will take issue. Look at the other laws that are passed to control the population.

    The proposed rules on the global warming is not so much about science as it is about controlling the population. Step back and look at it, the proposals are about control.

    Tax is a form of bondage, one becomes indebted to the government. At what level is there rebellion.

    The TSA issue is at that rebellion point because it is close and personal. Yet so are all the other laws that take away personal freedoms.

    As a society how many freedoms are we willing to give to the government in exchange for............?

    If the other laws and proposed laws were as personal as the TSA shake down, people would maybe take heed of what is going on in DC.

    In society there is a schism of control issues and many believe that they have the right to control others in some form or fashion. There are rulers, emperors, royalty, dictators and so on, each wants to control the population.
