$100 for Exemption From TSA Abuse

TSA-Fast-Pass

Just as shopkeepers can keep their windows safe from errant bricks by paying off mobsters, travelers can now avoid being seen naked or having their genitals fondled by petty tyrants by paying protection money to the TSA:

Those who wish to avoid body scanners and pat-downs at airports can pay $100 to opt into a Transportation Security Administration expedited security screening program.

Those who cough up the cash are also excused from taking off their shoes, belts, and jackets and are even allowed to bring liquids in their carry-on bags.

Nearly 100,000 American Airlines passengers have already signed up.

No sense wondering how many of them are named Mohammad. I doubt Homeland Security collects that kind of information.

    I hope that Janet and her goons keep groping members of congress.

    Janet and her goons will keep doing what they are doing right now… PROFILING!!!

    They will watch and count Middle Eastern persons to make sure they don’t get too much attention. And when they do get too much attention or they complain IN THE LEAST, then Janet will force her employees to take sensitivity training.

    Also, when a person of any other religion besides Islam complains about their invasive searches, they will whip out their handy-dandy, government-issues card which says, “If you don’t like it, then DON’T FLY!!!!”

    Who will we sue in 20 years when frequent flyers start getting increased rates of skin cancer from the screening machines?

    If the American people had any brains or backbone, which they don’t, they would launch a complete boycott against any airline that engages in this politically motivated scam. They would also demand the immediate firing of Butch Napilitano.

    I feel safer already. Good thing the terrorists don’t have $100 bucks.

    This program is called PreCheck and it’s actually free, not $100. However, the only people in it for free are the premium passengers that Delta and AA submitted for the trial program at Atlanta and DFW.

    The $100 refers to the fact that if you’re part of any other “trusted traveler” program such as Global Entry, you’re also enrolled in PreCheck. Global Entry lets you skip the lines at immigration because it includes a background check, fingerprints, and other documentation.

    After the initial program the TSA will be opening PreCheck up to more people and eventually most people will be in it.

    One of the benefits is you get to skip the “naked scanners” as well.

    People wanted “profiling”… and this is how the TSA is giving it to them.

    I won’t question your facts, but you seem to contradict yourself.
    You say the PreCheck program is free, then state immediately that “the only people in it for free are the premium passengers” in the trial program.
    If a trusted traveler program such as Global Entry costs money, then the “get out of grope free” card isn’t free. I’m not familiar with the G.E. program so I don’t know if it involves a cost. However, having gone through background checks, I do know that at least some of them you have to pay for.
    If eventually most people will be in the program, will the scanners/strip searches then be discontinued? If so, what was the entire purpose to spending the megabucks and creating the new bureaucracy in the first place?
    I’m guessing your profiling comment was just facetious, because this program doesn’t fit into any profiling context. It just basically says “If you can pass our background checks, rock on.”
    But hey, in the end it brings revenue to the Fed, thereby lowering the deficit! (sarc)

    Please sign my petition here:

    http://wh.gov/RPx

    It asks the administration to withhold funding for the TSA until the following conditions are met:

    1. Remove and destroy all imaging machines that potentially can “see” under our clothing, whether or not those images are retained.

    2. Cease and desist all invasive patdowns that involve touching genitalia, even through clothing, unless there is probable cause to believe that the individual has committed a crime.

    3. Cease immediately harassment and illegal detention of people who assert their constitutional rights during airport screening.

    Thanks in advance for signing.
