TSA Now Groping and Wanding Americans When Getting OFF the Train?

Because it's not really about security after all. Is it?

February 13:
The only bad thing on our trip was TSA was at the Savannah train station. There were about 14 agents pulling people inside the building and coralling everyone in a roped area AFTER you got OFF THE TRAIN! This made no sense!!! Poor family in front of us! 9 year old getting patted down and wanded. They groped our people too and were very unprofessional. I am all about security, but when have you ever been harassed and felt up getting OFF a plane? Shouldnt they be doing that getting ON??? And they wonder why so many people are mad at them.

And I'm sure the Republicans will get right on this. Right?

Doubt it, rickl. I doubt that "even" American technology has come up with a wand to find evolution textbooks. Give them time.

Drive to where you are going.
Especially if the flight is three hours or shorter since you are going to spend 1¼ to 1½ in the airport and another hour getting out of the damn place. That's 5 to 6 hours of being screwed with and paying big bucks for the privilege.

In you car, you can travel armed.

Just got back from Nantucket. 1900 miles one way. I drove my pickup. Cops were everywhere. Lots of "Drug task force" marked cars. Lot's of unmarked cars. I stopped counting at 15 TXDPS cars between Waco and Austin. Saw two people handcuffed on the side of the road with four or more police cars attending, TN and TX. Hoods up, trunks open, belongings spread out on the ground. These are asset forfeiture miners, not traffic cops, for the most part. You can't escape the police state. Recently I was asked when stopped (Texas) for speeding, "are you armed?" How do we get from you were speeding to are you armed? And if I had answered yes?

The more the Government fears it is losing control the tighter it will grip.

No Government believes in much Freedom and Liberty is a worse curse.

The airport here in Savannah averages about 3 flights a day. Which gives the TSA ample opportunity to create mischief elsewhere, including that fleabag train station over in Dumptown.
