"Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Paul to the persecuted at Philippi (2:5-11)

Found on the almighty internet...
Faced with the miniscule chance of having to confront a terrorist on an airplane or the guarantee of being repeatedly assaulted in an airport every time I try to travel, I'd rather deal with the terrorist. If I defend myself against the assault of a TSA agent, I'm going to jail. If I defend myself against a terrorist, I'm a hero.
But what's the real difference. Let's think on this... a terrorist preys on opportunity, weakness in the victim, the unbalance of power. Aircraft are prime opportunity because the number of potential victims is high, and TSA has seen to it that we're not allowed to have any potential method of self defense on board. To them, we're strapped down, neutralized, and ready. Now just reverse the words terrorist and TSA... funny how that sentence still makes sense.
Face it, America. The terrorists have won. When you submit to fear enough to surrender your constitutional rights, be doused with cancer-causing radiation, allow women and children to be publically molested, you lose. Game over. You're in full submisison already. It doesn't matter if your overloards are TSA or Terrorists.
I would think the airlines would be livid. Their employees are repeatedly molested. Their stock is suffering as travellers look of alternative means of travel. Taxpayers should be livid; we're being forced to pay for our own molestation.
I'll still fly if I have to. But there is no way on earth I will allow my children to be irradiated and manhandled. If our babies are taught early on to submit to this invasion and abuse, our grandbabies will be no more than slaves.
I wonder when the day will come that anyone who can defend themselves without external weapons, anyone who votes libertarian, and anyone who pubically questions authority will be on the mythic "no fly" list... Every day, our airline passengers are further weeded out, so that only the most docile sitting ducks remain.
Dear TSA. I am a constitutional libertarian. I vote. Fear me.
