U.S. Airport Pat-Downs Are About to Get More Invasive

While few have noticed, U.S. airport security workers long had the option of using five different types of physical pat-downs at the screening line. Now those options have been eliminated and replaced with a single universal approach. This time, you will notice.

The new physical touching—for those selected to have a pat-down—will be be what the federal agency officially describes as a more “comprehensive” physical screening, according to a Transportation Security Administration spokesman.

Denver International Airport, for example, notified employees and flight crews on Thursday that the “more rigorous” searches “will be more thorough and may involve an officer making more intimate contact than before.”

“I would say people who in the past would have gotten a pat-down that wasn’t involved will notice that the [new] pat-down is more involved,” TSA spokesman Bruce Anderson said Friday. The shift from the previous, risk-based assessment on which pat-down procedure an officer should apply was phased in over the past two weeks after tests at smaller airports, he said.

Without the government there are no citizens.

The charge is for 24/hr tracking. The not-raping is a fringe benefit.

If anything, the citizen should be paid for everything he's giving to the government.

That's not a service the government is providing to the citizen, but rather a service the citizen is providing to the government.

In other words, every government program in existence...

Yet who pays taxes?

There's a big difference between social services and infrastructure being paid for by the public and the government favoring rich people with a different set of rules. You should not be allowed to buy government privileges.

How much of that budget actually goes toward the people who need it? I can tell you from experience(wife is a social worker), that contracts are met by pushing papers around, not by actually helping people. Ever heard the phrase "government boondoggle"?

Actually, the world Strategist wants is like North Korea, a place where authoritarianism is absolute. What I want for the United States is the exact opposite of what North Korea is. I want a nation where all persons are equal under law with the exact same rights and no privileges for anyone, a society where we all obey the exact same laws, no exceptions. Strategists wants a class society with different laws for different people. He wants America to be North Korea.

Americans are so brainwashed, divided, distracted, degraded, and demoralized now that they might even think these trends are necessary and proof that the US is improving.

Hello Dan, we already have that. It's called America, the land where millions risk their lives to get in. The land that has done so much for mankind. The land that sacrificed 620,000 young men so that slaves would be freed. The land that has given it's citizens a standard of living that is envied by the world. The land that allows you to criticize it no matter what.
The land that you hate.

When a TSA agent gropes you, should you punch him in the face?

You'll go to jail, but TSA agents might start to think twice before molesting people.

The fact that you actually believe that is proof that you are brainwashed. Any attempt to make America better or to save Americans you don't like, such as innocent blacks being murdered by cops, you call an attack on America. You are so full of shit.

Some Americans may have felt uneasy 35 years ago when DUI laws, DWI checkpoints, seatbelt laws, and car liability insurance laws were started, but most people felt that the experts must be right.

Pro-police state shows like "COPS" and "America's Most Wanted" were then aired, neighborhood watch groups were formed, "get tough on crime" candidates were elected, and laws allowing mandatory minimums, IMBRA, 3 strikes laws, curfews, police militarization, teen boot camps, school metal detectors, private prisons, and chain gangs were enacted.

Nanny state smoking laws then started appearing.

When 9/11 happened, the Patriot Act was passed, NSA wiretapping, no knock raids, take down notices, no fly lists, terror watch lists, Constitution free zones, stop and frisk, kill switches, National Security Letters, DNA databases, kill lists, FBAR, FATCA, Operation Chokepoint, TSA groping, civil forfeiture, CIA torture, NDAA indefinite detention, secret FISA courts, FEMA camps, laws requiring passports for domestic travel, IRS laws denying passports for tax debts, gun and ammo stockpiles, laws outlawing protesting, Jade Helm, sneak and peek warrants, policing for profit, no refusal blood checkpoints, license plate readers, redlight cameras, speed cameras, FBI facial and voice recognition, tattoo databases, gun bans, the end to the right to silence, free speech bans, searches without warrants, CISPA, SOPA, private prison quotas, sex offender registration laws, supermax prisons, and sex offender restriction laws were allowed.

Now that the USA is a total police state, Americans are finding out that changing anything is impossible and that freedom is lost forever.

This is exactly why everyone should be packing M134.

Cops trying to steal people's money at DWI stops would need to weigh the possibility that they'd vanish in a cloud of red mist and have to be collected with a garden rake.

The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere.
