Senators call for end of TSA full body scans/pat downs (video)

November 17, 2010



Senator Michael J. Doherty (R-Hunterdon, Warren) and Senator James Beach (D-Camden) today announced they will present resolutions to the Senate and Assembly calling on the U.S. Congress to end TSA screening procedures requiring full body scans and pat downs at U.S. airports Their action comes in response to widespread concerns over privacy and radiation, as well as reports of inappropriate conduct by TSA agents during the screening process.

Excerpt:

“The pursuit of security should not force Americans to surrender their civil liberties or basic human dignity at a TSA checkpoint,” said Doherty. “Subjecting law-abiding American citizens to naked body scans and full body pat downs is intolerable, humiliating, vulnerable to abuse, and is fast becoming a disincentive to travel. Particularly concerning to us is the fact that physical searches result in children being touched in private areas of the body. Terrorists hate America because of the freedoms upon which this great nation was built. By implementing these screening measures, the TSA has already handed a victory to those who seek to destroy our freedoms.”

As George Orwell prophetically wrote...

"They could be made to accept the most flagrant violations of reality, because they never fully grasped the enormity of what was demanded of them, and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening."

We must be careful what they're grasping. Here's a man who resisted.

Is there a chart for the 'birth' of the TSA ?

oh dear, navigators, I've just happened again upon your question about the TSA having a natal chart - please pardon. The only reason I found your comment again is that I added linkedwithin.com to SOW earlier today and it's spotlighting an assortment of my posts both old and new...so I clicked.

As you may know by now, TSA was created "in the wake of 9/11" - Congress passed the Act that created it on Nov 19, 2001. There's a powerful YOD pattern w Mars/Pluto = Jupiter 15Can12 Rx - and Jupiter conjoins the Pentagon's natal Ascendant so right away we know who to thank for the financial bottomless pit that is TSA and HoSec. jc

Uh-oh, it's a double 'oh dear'! For when I set up the TSA chart, I accidentally used '2001' instead of Nov 19, 2002. So scratch what I said in the previous reply. The resulting chart is more complex and will need more study...please pardon for my duh-ness...I knew there was a good reason I should Never Type After Midnight! jc
