Yeah, he really said that, which caught Hannity completely off guard. What he was really talking about was going through the airport scanners. Michael Roberts, a pilot who is now suing Homeland Security decided to forgo the airport scanners and the full-body ‘love pats’ and took the third option of going home, which is where he’s been ever since. He says that he’s always gone through the metal detector, but this is going way too far.

A point that Hannity made which I find interesting is that the logic fails on scanning and searching pilots because they can ultimately crash the plane anyway. There’s no procedure in the world that can prevent that and it just shows how ludicrous these measures have become. Last night on the O’Reilly Factor, Ann Coulter asked if body cavity searches would be next, considering that terrorists have already used this method to conceal explosives.

What we really need to do is to take a page out of Israel’s playbook and begin doing background checks on airline passengers and putting people on the ground in the airports that are specifically trained to interview suspicious passengers. These methods are much less invasive, and highly effective according to the former Security Chief of El Al airlines.

I’ll be glad when we get some common sense in Washington. This is really getting pathetic.

    John Mica who co-created the TSA is now speaking out against it and is urging airports to drop the TSA which by law they are allowed to do.

    • Extremely Right

      Glenn Beck made a good point on tonights show. The regime wants us to get pissed off, so they can ratchet it up a notch. I believe they want a showdown. Nothing else makes sense.

      • Tyler

        The only way us getting angry will be an accomplishment for the regime is if we resort to violence and destruction.

        If we resist peacefully…especially with a free market solution like the one I mentioned above…then we will ultimately win.

        I do agree though that the regime might be trying to test us to see what levels of tyranny we will accept and I think that all started with the creation of the TSA in the first place. Airport security went from almost non-existent to spending hours for security procedures before getting on a 45 minute flight almost overnight because of the very powerful tool of fear. But since people are seeing things more logically than through fear…that’s what is bringing this tyranny into light. I guarantee you there would probably be a bit less backlash on this had the underwear bomber actually blown the plane up and killed all those people. I could be wrong though, so who knows.

    Travel by Amtrack for awhile and let’s see how the airlines handle this when their sales really go down. They will be a much louder voice when they loose sales.

  • Extremely Right

    This is like watching a foreign film. Audio is not synched to video. lol

    We need the military working at airports instead of civilians!! At least they have common sense, in my opinion!!

    • Paulchri

      What?! UUUGGGGHHH! Did you say that just to get a reaction? I’ll give you one. First of all, government has no right to intervene as a third party between airlines and customers and engage in illegal search and seizure. This includes military. Military should not be allowed to police civilians. Though the patriot act got rid of posse comotatus which forbade military from being involved with civilians. The patriot act also took away your right to a trial, freedom of association, free speech, and much more. Yet you would welcome it all so long as cave dwelling muslims can’t be led onto a plane by the CIA and stage terror attempts to get us to give up more of our rights. Holy crap! Do you feel like you belong in 1930s Germany as a Jew? You have the mentality.

      • Steprock

        Perhaps Adkins_piperleo18 meant former military, like they use in Israel? I may be assuming too much.

      • Leel004

        Agree 100%. Getting the civilian sector to allow military policing in the airports is a GREAT step for total gov controll…..obama would LOVE this idea. Then he could make a giant step with his brown shirt ‘volunteer’ thugs.

    • Paulchri

      Sorry. I just can’t help myself. Now, I am going to be on a terror list as a threat to national security. Wait, I already am. I have a Ron Paul bumper sticker, and am a returning veteran from service, and post on right wing blogs, and want to end the Federal Reserve, and several other things in the MIAC report that revealed that I am targeted for my associations by my government.

      Ok. I’m done for now.

        Haha, I’ll make you an anarchist yet, just wait!

        • Paulchri

          The only thing that keeps me from being a full blown anarchist is pragmatism. I just don’t see it as a possible scenario. At least not in my lifetime. I think our founders largely thought this also.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=770715455 Daniel Tumser

            Practically speaking it’s not possible, the historical precedent is mixed and successes were rare. I can’t get past the fact that in the last century over 177,000,000 people have been killed by their OWN governments. That doesn’t even include international wars. It seems very unlikely to me, near impossible, for private violence to exceed that.

            There are risks in a stateless society, and a guarantee of some maleficence, but that does not negate that governments perpetrate these same evils. Governments also have the advantages of boot-licker philosophers like Hobbes to try to justify tyranny, public schools who program children that the state is benevolent and necessary and peoples short-sighted impulse for security working in the favor of the state.

            The US government has a protection racket that is the wet dream of the mafia.

            • Paulchri

              I think that small group rules for society tend to deal with misbehavior better, which leads to much less crime and violence in a society. When the State gets involved, we have a political entity dealing with punishment of crime. This tends to increase crime as the penalties are weak. We are a prison society. Anarchists have no use for them.

              Besides, if we hadn’t built all those prisons, we wouldn’t have anywhere to take the dissenters of the police state. Without the Army’s Rapid Action Civilian Inmate Labor Plan, we wouldn’t have a place to put current inmates when we have to jam more in under martial law.

              Just saying…..

        I’m not a returning veteran. I was using that as an example.

    If this method keeps my plane from being blown up or flown into a building, I AM ALL FOR IT. Its not like they are feeling you up and playing with your junk. They touch them very briefly only to feel for anything suspicious.

    • Fallon Cheryl

      Read your Constitution-then go read the Patriot Act-what next-declaring your religious affiliation on your boarding pass-honestly Benjamin Franklin was right when he said: Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

    • Tyler

      Just curious, Kevin. What if they somehow catch an “anal bomber” next? Will you be okay with them making you bend over while they look up your rectum with a flashlight like they did to the guy in “Clockwork Orange” when he went to prison?

      “If this method keeps my plane from being blown up or flown into a building,” right?

    There are females who can’t wear tampons, they will feel a slight bulge, then what?
    Do I have to expose myself and show my monthly attire? I do worry about that!

    • Leel004

      ….as the British say…..’what a bloody good idea”…
      sorry for the poor pun, but I need pitiful humor to make it through this liberal state I unfortunately live in….and those saying ‘just move’, believe me I am praying for that, but hubby “no like move”. Aloha,
