Aileen was going to post today but she didn’t so… I thought I’d slip this little rant in real quick before the nice Pinkpeppers notice it’s up.
4th Amendment right to be secure in our “…persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches…”. Blah, blah, blah. Anybody remember her high school civics class?
Airline employees and passengers are getting really fed up with the TSA attitude and the body scanners. If you choose to opt out of appearing naked before the TSA employee, hell to pay, they grope you.
Just in time for holiday travel, there is a growing number of news sources that are encouraging travelers to just say no to naked scanners.
“Grassroots groups are urging travelers to either not fly or to protest by opting out of the full-body scanners and undergo time-consuming pat-downs instead.Such concerns prompted a meeting Friday of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano with leaders of travel industry groups.”
Janet Napolitano was at the unveiling of the naked scanner in New York. When asked to unveil herself in the scanner, she refused. That’s only for dumb sheep, not important people like herself.

The fourth amendment is a single sentence, shame on us if we don’t know it.
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
