Tomorrow is National Opt Out day for scanners and genitalia searches.
As far as I'm concerned, every day is Opt Out day!
We still have the 4th amendment in place and the current TSA protocol is in clear violation.
There is NO LAW requiring us to submit to such offensive, oppressive tactics.
Yes, it's a different world since 9/11. But, I don't remember anyone saying anything about dissolving the 4th amendment. Until we do that, we don't have to allow a search of our genitalia to leave town. If we allow fear to rule our intellect, history tells us we are on a dangerously slippery slope.
Let's not let the argument be misdirected; this is NOT about being forced to absorb radioactivity (although a valid argument), it is about privacy and our inalienable rights.
Fear does not overrule the Constitution of the United States.
Mr. Pistole, the TSA Administrator, in his US News and World Report interview said, "We want to treat each passenger with dignity and respect.".
Mr. Pistole, treating citizens with "dignity and respect" does not include the presumption of guilt, rather than innocence and it doesn't include a reach-around!
Matt Kernan provides an example of how to be respectful, not allow the TSA or police to violate your 4th Amendment rights and then be allowed to travel.
Sam Wolanyk also declined. His approach was more attention grabbing.
Stand up for yourself. Stand up for your country.
All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.
