Former TSA administrator admits TSA violates 4th Amendment

I found this video at, of all places, World Nut Daily. Yes, World Nut Daily. Teabagger central. Birther control. Never met a right-wing infringement upon freedom that it didn't like. Well, unless said right-wing infringement is done by a Democratic darky, of course -- World Nut Daily is pinning this one on Obama. Which, in my opinion, is fair dinkum at this point -- Obama is in charge of the TSA, he could end this abuse simply by issuing an executive order, and he hasn't. Of course, if he did issue such an executive order then World Nut Daily would attack him for "making the skies unsafe to fly", but let's face it even a stopped clock is right twice a day, and this is's time of day to be right :).

For more context, see the longer version of the video.


  1. Flying is such a miserable experience these days, I'd say the TSA is the reason I don't visit my relatives often enough. Well, that & the relatives themselves, but you see what I mean. I'd rather stick needles in my eyes than fly somewhere.

  2. I guess the TeaBaggers would have analog clocks which are the only ones that are right twice a day when broken and stopped.
