Quotes of the day

posted at 10:55 pm on November 16, 2010 by Allahpundit

“Last Thursday I was flying to LA on the Midnight flight. I went through security my usual sour stuff. I beeped, of course, and was shuttled to the ‘toss-em’ line. A security guy came over. I assumed the position. I had a button up shirt on that was untucked. He reached around while he was behind me and grabbed around my front pocket. I guess he was going for my flashlight, but the area could have loosely been called ‘crotch.’ I said, ‘You have to ask me before you touch me or it’s assault.’

“He said, ‘Once you cross that line, I can do whatever I want.’…

“I tell the cop the story, in a very funny way. The cop, the voice of sanity says, ‘What’s wrong with you people? You can’t just grab a guy’s crank without his permission.’ I tell him that my genitals weren’t grabbed and the cop says, ‘I don’t care, you can’t do that to people. That’s assault and battery in my book.’”

“Unlike a medical X-ray, the TSA X-ray machines are a sci-fi fan’s dream: they are lower-energy beams that can only penetrate clothing and the topmost layers of skin. This provides TSA agents with a view that would expose any explosives concealed by clothing. But according to the UCSF professors, the low-enegy rays do a ‘Compton scatter’ off tissue layers just under the skin, possibly exposing some vital areas and leaving the tissues at risk of mutation.

“When an X-ray Compton scatters, it doesn’t shift an electron to a higher energy level; instead, it hits the electron hard enough to dislodge it from its atom. The authors note that this process is ‘likely breaking bonds,’ which could cause mutations in cells and raise the risk of cancer.

“Because the X-rays only make it just under the skin’s surface, the total volume of tissue responsible for absorbing the radiation is fairly small. The professors point out that many body parts that are particularly susceptible to cancer are just under the surface, such as breast tissue and testicles. They are also concerned with those over 65, as well as children, being exposed to the X-rays.”

***
“Airline passengers who object to any type of physical screening are not going to fly anywhere, the head of the Transportation Security Administration told a congressional committee Tuesday.

“Quizzed by lawmakers about a controversial new airport procedure that uses revealing full-body scan machines and intimate ‘pat-downs’ of those who object or set off alarms, TSA Administrator John S. Pistole appealed to the flying public to become “partners” in the effort to combat terrorism.

“But Pistole told the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs that his inspectors at 453 of the nation’s airports are not going to back down in the face of complaints that techniques are invasive.”

If these government goons really want to prove how brilliant and forward thinking their ridiculous ideas are – all they have to do is show us the list of all the terrorists that the TSA has stopped from getting on an airplane. Oh wait….

To be frank, at this point in my life (early 20s), only my female doctor has seen my body. The next person ain’t about to be some TSA goon.

KellyBomelly on November 17, 2010 at 12:32 AM

That is a truly sad commentary on this whole mess. To be honest, I had thought about how this could traumatize the very young and cause significant stress for the very old. I had not considered the impact on young adults, particularly young females early in adulthood. You phrase it perfectly well, those images that the TSA lied about not being stored contain visions that should not be seen by any but to whom you choose to reveal them.

“But Pistole told the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs that his inspectors at 453 of the nation’s airports are not going to back down in the face of complaints that techniques are invasive.”

Oh yeah?

Did you know that the nation’s airports are not required to have Transportation Security Administration screeners checking passengers at security checkpoints? The 2001 law creating the TSA gave airports the right to opt out of the TSA program in favor of private screeners after a two-year period. Now, with the TSA engulfed in controversy and hated by millions of weary and sometimes humiliated travelers, Rep. John Mica, the Republican who will soon be chairman of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, is reminding airports that they have a choice.

Sorry, late to the show and not staying long. I have a big problem with what TSA is saying now and how the story will change. I remember when these scanners first came on the scene. The public was told that the images could not be saved but already we know that isn’t true and that hundreds of them have been posted online. I assume you can’t recognize who the picture is but shouldn’t we have heard about TSA employees being fired for this breach? Maybe these people would be trusted if they acted more trustworthy.

That’s a good point. The TSA is the epitome of overkill without any measurable results. A waste of money in my opinion.

I remember, even in coach class, the food was good, not great but good, served with real silverware, coffee and juice in real cups, not just paper, a menu to choose from, and plenty of leg room.

The TSA has contributed to the decline of a once great US industry. When I fly to Asia, I’m reminded of how it used to be, on China Air.

Well that’s too bad. Was going to see my parents after my birthday again early next year.

Was looking forward to doing some snorkeling (not a lot of that in Colorado in late winter/early spring).

But I can’t fly now. Oh I could live with the pat-down (pass on the scan, I get enough radiation). But on the off chance they’d be doing an “enhanced pat down” on a kid while I was there?

I don’t need the jail time for assaulting a TSA agent. And there’s no way I could keep to myself and keep quiet watching someone sexually assault a kid.

Oh, and if you don’t think it’s sexual assault; go to a playground, find a kid you don’t know, run your hand up his/her inner thigh until you “meet resistance”. Then in 10-15 years come back and tell us exactly what the courts called it, presuming the parents don’t beat you to death.

I am sensing the unrest in the country was not satisfied with the election.

Somehow the election was anti-climatic, Obama should have cried, Pelosi should have publicly admitted her communism… And Reid should have crawled in a hole in embarrassment.

Maybe then we would start to feel better about the direction of the country.

As it is… we voted for more freedom and we got Big Brother on steroids looking down our shirts, and up our skirts… and molesting little girls… all under the guise of Big Brother looking out for us little folk.

I am sensing a revolt of sorts over these intrusive machines and the way they are trying to force us to use them by making the patting down as unpleasant and embarrassing as possible.

Nudge nudge… do what we want… nudge nudge… lab rats.

Not everyone is a terrorist. If we can start on that premise, we can change the rest. If we can never reach that premise, nothing will ever change.

Every year I fly back home to visit my folks for Christmas. This year, I think I will take the train.

As it turns out, Amtrack has a direct run from LA to Houston for $133 each way. You get three checked bags, and two carry-ons of 50lbs each, and the check bags can be up to a yard on each side. The down side is the trip is 36 hours, and the direct train only runs MWF.

36h is a bit of a long trip, but given that the last flight, the way the aircraft seats were packed together managed to wrench my knee, I wonder if it’s not worth it.

Once a philosopher…

My earlier post mentioned FBI checks. I was behind the curve on that one. Check out:

From ThirdAge.com

Background checks, full body scans and other security measures are being rolled out to anyone flying in or through the United States due to recent developments coming out of the office of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. The catch? All of those security measures apply to anyone getting on board an aircraft – including pilots.
Captain John Prater, head of the Air Line Pilots Association, noted pilots are already subject to FBI background checks. Prater said that based on discussions with TSA officials Monday he was hopeful the agency will soon approve a “crew pass” system that would allow flight attendants and pilots to undergo less stringent screenings.

I’m already trying to figure out how to go to my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary in February without flying–they live across the country, and I don’t feel free to take two weeks off from work to drive. The very idea that I would be put in this situation, while the female members of the group who is the problem in the first place would not, is intolerable.

How our government works:
1) Get a position in the government.
2) Hype up some scare and advocate a solution to it
3) Sell/convince the government on your proposed solution, leave your government position, and partner up with the company that provides that same solution.
4) Sit back and enjoy your new money.

“And finally, like most government scandals, follow the money. Guess which company owns a large manufacturer of backscatter x-ray devices? Give up? The Chertoff Group which is a security consulting agency run by former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. That’s right, in the wake of the Christmas Day bomber Chertoff has been pushing for more and more of these full body image scanners and it’s no wonder considering that this is going to put a large chunk of money in his pocket. Go figure!”

hmmmm…it seems most of you are willing to massage the constitution to allow waterboarding if it “keeps us safe”, but now you’re objecting to a body scan? and then you reject the “need” for an aggressive pat down if you refuse a scan? seems to me if tsa can’t profile, which they should, then we all need to grin and bear/bare it

yes, yes, i know we’ll need to be extra vigilant about our rights, but we also know the terrorists are not above using kids to carry their bombs

i have the perfect solution: airlines should advertise flights specifically for the “don’t grab my junk” passengers; in fact, we can eliminate security altogether for these flights

me? scan me, squeeze me, just don’t appease me…i’ll choose a flight with people who prefer the israeli method for airline security

Rae on November 17, 2010 at 1:02 AM

What’s their liability exposure if they do it themselves or hire a private security company? Remember the case of the “flying imams” — a bunch of Muslim clerics (or so they claimed) flying sometime after 9/11 who were detained and questioned after behaving suspiciously in the airport. They sued everybody in sight — including the other passengers who had initially reported their behavior. IIRC, the imams ended up getting paid a settlement by the airport and/or the airline (after the complaining passengers were exempted from liability by an act of Congress).

I doubt airports are going to want to handle security themselves if they’re at risk of being sued by every Muslim who gets offended. We need to end this PC crap of frisking grannies and toddlers and start profiling the people most likely to be terrorists — whether it offends a particular group or not.

AZCoyote on November 17, 2010 at 7:27 AM

The Israeli method: Profile each passenger, interview those that stick out, depressurize all luggage before it is put on the aircraft. After that a simple metal detector and observing how people act before they board is necessary.

Note the lack of x-rays, squeezing, groping?

You can be very safe with next to no invasion of privacy to get security.

Of course since our pilots are almost all ex-USAF or Marine Corps pilots I think not letting them go armed is nuts. But then I also think that our air safety wardens being armed isn’t the brightest idea and the greatest deterrence to those wishing to kill their way through a population is a well armed population. De-pressurization will not blow a hole in an aircraft… that takes some real structural failure to happen, not simple cabin punctures. At that point you could do away with metal detectors and just have good observers around… human nature has its cues, and finding those wishing to kill us is far more important than patting down and groping granny, a medal of honor winner or a 4 year old child.

I would be very willing to pay less and bring my own on-board security, thanks. That and duct tape to seal any holes should do just fine, TYVM.

Just get your mind right.
This is not about safety,
But forced compliance.

The government has decided that you shall go through their full body scans, and you will go through their full body scans. If the the “Grab and Shake” pat-down is not enough to convince you, then they will start sticking their hands down your pants. Whatever it takes to make the full body scan the less offensive option. The government is going to do whatever it takes to get their way.

What we have here is
Failure to Communicate.

You said you’d prefer to fly with people who prefer the Israeli method, and that is exactly what people have been calling for. So what is your disagreement with what has been said?

Alden Pyle on November 17, 2010 at 9:19 AM

• Ladies and Gentlemen:
Michelle has to be congratulated for printing the most fearful words that this country has spent 234 years fighting to prevent from being uttered by a government employee.
‘Once you cross that line, I can do whatever I want.’…
The truth – Yes, they can threaten you in anyway they want and you allow. Yes, you must undergo a security screening to get on an airplane. But, if you cross their imaginary threshold and at the last minute you do not want to be screened, you have the right to refuse such insulting and indignant action.
If you refuse, you may simply state your claim and by law the screener is required to summon the Airport Security Police who will escort you to an area outside of the screening process to let you work out how you are going to get to your destination.
While this may sound like I fully support the TSA’s current actions – I do not. I am illustrating that the public has been lulled into a false sense of security because the Screener does not have the power to arrest you or enforce anything that would prevent your civil rights from being abused. The Airport or jurisdiction that operates the airport has the power to detain, arrest, and frisk you down in the manner the TSA screeners have implemented recently.
Remember, these actions are simply an overreaction to past and recent (the shoe bomber, Xmas Bomber and recent attempt to conceal explosives in printer cartridges) attempts to disrupt our Aviation Industry.
The public is engaging the proper method of protest. The more people that refuse (particularly at the last minute) to fly is gaining the attention necessary to tell the government that is not happy with their solution. This indignant groping and the arrogance of government employees who abuse their limited authority must be brought back under your control.
How long did it take the (D) controlled government to inject themselves into your lives and evolve into the largest beauracrey since the creation of the DOD? Several weeks correct.
However, airports could have had all security contracts the air carriers had with the security company used to provide the screening process as directed under FAA Part 108 nullified and all equipment used for the process turned over to the airport. These actions, combined with implementation of “Davis Beacon” would have improved the pay of the trained cadre of screeners (remember this was the major bone of contention with the screening process prior to 9/11).
Thus on 9/12 airports would have been able to complete the circle of security, by closing the last 36″ of the airport perimeter security that existed well in advance of 9/11. The Law of Regency, has allowed the public to forget there are still a small number of airports allowed to implement and use this security methodology to protect you – and I have not found any bad media emanating about the screening process these airports use.
Remember, you have the right to opt out of the screening process, and you have the ability to request your airports to consider opting out too. Thus, allowing your airport and air carrier to secure you the public and our valued customers from the enemy; whoever they may be.

we’re never going to get profiling even though it works…america is never going to take over all security for flights heading to the US…so, put me through a scanner…put EVERYBODY through a scanner…and, yes, give a good squeeze to those who refuse a scan

those of you who object, are you willing to fly on planes exclusively for passengers who refuse scans and pat downs? not only will you be protecting your rights, you’ll also save lots of time getting through security…so demand your special flights and laugh at the rest of us standing in line…i predict that it won’t take long before your special flights become much more popular

barnone on November 17, 2010 at 12:12 PM

erclimb on November 17, 2010 at 9:55 AM

I disagree that acceptance of waterboarding is incongruous with complaints about body scans. The former is done to extract information from known terrorists in order to save lives; the latter is subjecting American citizens who are accused of no crime to treatment reserved for accused criminals, because government officials are unwilling to tell the truth about the nature of the enemy.

And I’m not convinced that we won’t yet name the enemy and begin to profile–Americans are just about fed up with this nonsense, and the more particulars they hear, the worse they think it is. This past election was some indication that alarm bells are beginning to go off about how out of hand our government has gotten; this suggests we can be awakened and we’re pretty good at identifying the problem despite of decades of effort on the part of the Left. When enough people have experienced the reality of scanners and gropers, rather than just hearing that there is an x-ray machine and a pat-down, they will again be reminded of exactly whom we get to thank for all this.

DrMagnolias on November 17, 2010 at 12:15 PM

yes, yes, i know we’ll need to be extra vigilant about our rights, but we also know the terrorists are not above using kids to carry their bombs
erclimb on November 17, 2010 at 7:18 AM

So you’re ok with kids being sexually assaulted as long as you get to feel safer? You’re explicitly making that point, because terrorists might use kids to carry bombs; so we need to grope them… right?

And if they might have the bombs up the kids butts? Cavity searches for everyone? Or is that too far?

I’m just curious how far you’ll let the sexual molestation of a child go before you’ll consider that perhaps accepting some risk instead might be a reasonable option.

PROFILE! Sorry for you weak-kneed PC hounds. There is one demographic that has caused this problem and we all know it. I don’t mind the metal detector (although that did a FABULOUS job keeping BOX CUTTERS off the 9/11 flights) and then add trained people profiling when you check into security. Hell, take the border patrol agents from the US/Canada border. They don’t mess around and they ask hard questions to see what you’re up to. Let the TSA workers find porn on the internet to jack off to instead of our images.
