TSA agents force flight attendant to remove, show prosthetic breast

Nov 19, 2010 Full story: www.examiner.com 354
The TSA has taken much flak about its new full body scanners, and it has also taken criticism over its pat down procedure, which passengers can opt for rather than the scan. In the case of flight attendant Cathy Boss, she received an embarrassing addition to the procedure: she was forced to remove her prosthetic breast as part of it. Full Story

What do you think all this regulation does.....it eliminates the competition for those well connected to the regulators.
Yeah, but under deregulation, the larger companies just swallow the smaller ones anyway.

All this talk about cars gets me to thinking about the one I had that was built 50 years ago. Mine had the small engine that year, a 300 HP job.

Then there is my Silverado built 6 years ago that also has a 300 HP engine in it. It gets about the same gas mileage as that 1960 T Bird.

I've had Fords, Dodges, Pontiacs, Chevys (one was a Corvette), Datsuns, Toyotas, Plymouths and after spending 20 years in an auto factory, I'm not going to drive anything that weighs less than 4000 pounds with less than a 6 liter engine in it.

If I have to keep my truck until parts are no longer available, so be it. After that, I guess I'll just not drive if I have to have one of those plug me in things.

The mergers are ALL approved by Justice, anti-trust.

They were regulated, the mergers were regulated.

Look at Genentech, taken over by LaRoche.....study it. A regulated, well orchestrated take over. Could not happen without government.

Nothing smart about buying a smart car Jim that I can think of. Do you recon we’ll be shipping many goods from ports to destinations across the country in many smart cars? I’m not an eco nut Jim, I don’t buy into ANY of the popular fear puppeteering that so many others do. I’m all good.
Look, I don't own a "smart" car, but I don't judge those that do. I appluad people who make an effort to be conservative with out natural rescources, and I don't buy into the peer-pressure that says that saving gas makes you a "fag".

That was back in the early 1900's. I think there's quite a bit more regulation these days. Look, it's late...I'm tired...I'm sure the answers lie somewhere in between depending on the financial landscape of any particular time...just as there are times when Liberal policies work better than conservative ones, and vice versa. I don't think anything can be set in stone. Have a good night.

No, you assume mergers is a product of free markets......its not.

Name one merger WalMart has been involved in ?
Got many mergers locally, do your smaller local companies merge ?

Lets face it, the mergers that have taken place on our industries have been predatory to the worker. All were approved.

Did you look at Genentech....could not get FDA approval, got taken over by the big boys and BOOM.....approval. Then they pulled the product from the market..........

That is a regulated, predatory merger. More regulation and it gets worse. Fact is greedy people are attracted to government power, bureaucrats are attracted to money. Greed is the problem, more regulation will be more greed.

Yes, back in the nineteen hundreds progressive policy ruled, GM was a product of government. It was born of government and has been Government Motors since its inception.
It has received preferential ever since. In 2008 it went bankrupt......says a lot, does it not ?

All that help from government and it still failed. Did GM fail or government intervention into markets........

Yes, Jim, PRINCIPLES can be set in stone.

The expediency of the moment is not a principle, its an excuse for not having any.

TSA is a far greater threat to Americans than are terrorists

It doesn’t take a bureaucrat long to create an empire. John Pistole, the FBI agent who took over the Transportation Security Administration on July 1, told USA Today 16 days later that protecting trains and subways from terrorist attacks will be as high a priority for him as air travel.

It is difficult to imagine New Yorkers being porno-screened and sexually groped on crowed subway platforms or showing up an hour or two in advance for clearance for a 15-minute subway ride, but once bureaucrats get the bit in their teeth they take absurdity to its logical conclusion. Buses will be next, although it is even more difficult to imagine open air bus stops turned into security zones with screeners and gropers inspecting passengers before they board.

Will taxi passengers be next? In those Muslim lands whose citizens the US government has been slaughtering for years, favorite weapons for retaliating against the Americans are car and truck bombs. How long before Pistole announces that the TSA Gestapo is setting up roadblocks on city streets, highways and interstates to check cars for bombs?

That 15-minute trip to the grocery store then becomes an all day affair.

Indeed, it has already begun. Last September agents from Homeland Security, TSA, and the US Department of Transportation, assisted by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, conducted a counter-terrorism operation on busy Interstate 20 just west of Atlanta, Georgia. Designated VIPER (Visible Inter-mobile Prevention and Response), the operation required all trucks to stop to be screened for bombs. Federal agents used dogs, screening devices, and a large drive-through bomb detection machine. Imagine what the delays did to delivery schedules and truckers’ bottom lines.

There are also news reports of federal trucks equipped with backscatter X-ray devices that secretly scan cars and pedestrians.

With such expensive counter-terrorism activities, both in terms of the hard-pressed taxpayers’ money and civil liberties, one would think that bombs were going off all over America. But, of course, they aren’t. There has not been a successful terrorist act since 9/11, and thousands of independent experts doubt the government’s explanation of that event.

Subsequent domestic terrorist events have turned out to be FBI sting operations in which FBI agents organize not-so-bright disaffected members of society and lead them into displaying interest in participating in a terrorist act. Once the FBI agent, pretending to be a terrorist, succeeds in prompting all the right words to be said and captured on his hidden recorder, the “terrorists” are arrested and the “plot” exposed.

The very fact that the FBI has to orchestrate fake terrorism proves the absence of real terrorists.

If Americans were more thoughtful and less gullible, they might wonder why all the emphasis on transportation when there are so many soft targets. Shopping centers, for example. If there were enough terrorists in America to justify the existence of Homeland Security, bombs would be going off round the clock in shopping malls in every state. The effect would be far more terrifying than blowing up an airliner.

Tell me Jim where I said saving gas makes one a fag..Did I say that Jim? Please reference where I said that Jim. Now you asked me a simple question and I gave you an honest answer. Oh you maybe didn’t get quite the answer from me you wanted so you bent my post to fit your expression. Hey that’s just fine Jim I can handle it I’m used to people that use the bait tactic to shout out more of their point. It makes you feel good when you post it like you did something good for people. I still don’t know what the point in saving gas is to begin with. Unless there REALLY are puppets out there that think it’s going to go away. So much TV, wow…who should I listen to?

Can you tell me why people post these kinds of things? Do you figure this is some type of great discovery that needs to be seen by the entire world and tomorrow everyone will wake up with a bright fresh smelling world with cartoon bunnies hopping along with wild flowers? Its called LSD, it really works...for a bit!
