FReepers and DUmmies agree: We all hate the TSA!
Finally, some common ground! FReepers and DUmmies agree: We all hate the TSA! The hottest topic of the week in DUmmieland is the same as it is in FReeperville, i.e., thread upon thread of outrage over the latest excessive, intrusive measures of the Transportation Slowdown Administration.
So this will be a most unusual DUFU, where I mostly AGREE with the DUmmies. But now if we could only get them to take the next step and get equally upset over Big Government groping around in our pocketbook and taking our paycheck and taking away our freedoms! Why, we might make conservatives out of them yet! Well, don't hold your breath.
For today's DUFU I'm selecting just a couple of the MANY threads over there, this THREAD, "We're just ONE ceramic anus bomb away from mandatory cavity exams," and this THREAD, "Thanks to the TSA and Airline industries - I have absolutely no desire to travel by air anymore."
The DUmmie--or are they FReeper?--comments are in Thread Level Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, wanting somebody to write the book "Courage in Profilings," is in the [brackets]:
We're just ONE ceramic anus bomb away from mandatory cavity exams.
[We're SO CLOSE, benburch, aren't we?]
We cannot allow an Anus Bomb Gap. . . .
[Call Dr. Strangeglove.]
I'm wondering if the force of an intra-rectal explosive might not generate an air pressure shock wave sufficient to damage the fuselage of the aircraft.
[Laden, unladen, or been laden?]
"Rectum? Damn near killed 'em!"
[Thank you. Somebody had to say it.]
In that case, the next logical step would be mandatory enemas.
[With trends like these, who needs enemas?]
Now I get to decide if I want to be scanned by carcinogenic xrays or if I prefer to be sexually assaulted.
[They took an x-ray of a DUmmie's head and found nothing.]
Geez I'm a 40-something person born here in the USA. . . .
[Sure, that's what Obama said too.]
Did I mention those xrays can even show if I'm having my monthly curse or not (it will show if you're wearing a sanitary napkin).
[For those special times, Homeland Security will issue you an officially approved "Nappy."]
At least Canada is 6 hours away - I could drive there.
[I'll load the U-Haul for you.]
the last time I flew somewhere . . . it was Canada although it may have been Tampa.
[Now you'll have to pass through the Tampax-ray.]
It was FUN to fly in America, after the smoking ended and before the butt searching began.
[After the smoking ended, somebody was bound to search for the butt.]
Having known real freedom for so long, I don't want to become used to this level of intrusion. . . . we have overwhelmed good sense and given up the freedoms that made us a free people.
[Now apply that thinking to government intrusion into our freedoms in OTHER ways, and we'll make a conservative out of you yet!]
I survived drivign around Boston and that's fricking scary. . . .
[Especially the Pitt stops.]
Now I have to prepare myself to allow strangers to be touching me all over. . . .
[benburch's motto is "Always prepared."]
Personally however, this whole brouhaha would be tons better if Obama, Napolitano, and the rest of the TSA goons all went first through the scanners with their families.
[Having to see Janet Incompetano in the buff would cause TSA agents to quit in disgust.]
I wonder what would happen if I showed up at the airport naked?
[ben doesn't want to fly, he just wants to show up at the airport naked.]
