TSA Invasion of Privacy

TSA is supposed to keep us safe, yet their invasion of privacy goes against our God-given and Constitutional rights. There are a number of people here in TX who are fighting against them by trying to pass a bill against the "advanced pat-down," or groping. Please be in prayer on this and possibly write or call! It could be a huge opening for other states to follow suit, and would be a major blessing for us here.

A dear, sweet woman from our church has recently had some run-ins with the TSA. Please read and imagine how that would feel. Perhaps you've had similar things happen to you.

Amen! "Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!" -Patrick Henry

"Because I was wearing a skirt". You wear a long skirt, you strap disallowed items to your thighs, you slip through security, you blow up your plane. It's not an invasion of privacy, it's a very real safety precaution. You have a problem with it, you don't fly. Stop whining.

That's a possibility, Victoria, but usually a metal detector would catch it, and the whole thing has gone ridiculously far.

It's not so simple as not flying, either. If we don't stand up now, they could take the same measures on trains, buses, sporting events, even private places...some of which they already done in certain cases!
