We are Not All Equal In The Eyes Of The TSA
Washington, DC—The Internet posting of the TSA 93 page, airline passenger screening playbook was a real eye opener. Not only have TSA’s screeners made up their own rules, politicians get special treatment!
No American should be searched in the absence of a search warrant signed by a judge or at least probable cause. That was supposed to be a Constitutional guarantee. Without a Constitutional Amendment our cowardly courts have allowed this vile practice. Americans are frisked like criminals to enter a train, plane or government building. That’s wrong and un-American.
The politicians that have allowed this travesty have apparently provided themselves and families freedom from this indignity. Members of Congress, governors and lieutenant governors, the mayor of Washington, D.C., and their immediate families all get special treatment. These people must be required to live under the same conditions as every taxpayer.
No American should get special treatment. If the TSA assault on the Fourth Amendment is acceptable to use against me, than it must be acceptable for our politicians as well. If our politicians don’t like the screening they should abolish the practice.
Let’s demand an end to special treatment for politicians and their families!
