It’s good to know that the TSA morons are taking their job very seriously, here in the sixth year of The Long War (click for full size):


Suspicious-looking, possibly terrorist Catholic nun is frisked by muslim TSA agent.

Your tax dollars at “work.”

Somebody please tell me this is a PhotoShop!

    Those TSA goons are the equivalent of cops who pad their stats by writing speeding tickets on the freeway for 6 mph over the limit. The TSA Gestapo are in place solely to acclimate the American citizen to guvvie checkpoints.

    Power trippin’ little freaks. Now there’s talk of domestic passports. Both sides guilty on this one, for their own reasons. We will not learn until we get hit again, possibly nuclear. Then the moonbat brigades and RINOS will be held accountable by the American people. But at what cost? Contrary to popular belief, our government could not subjugate our armed, angry populace. Too many millions of people and guns, all knowing the home turf……..and all quite pissed off.

    I like to think positively. Maybe that TSA troop is a hippie instead of a muslim. Hippies would make great TSA agents, they’d scream like little girls if they saw a gun, and no drugs would ever manage to make it through a checkpoint run by hippies.

    When the Dodocrats forced the Federalization of airport security, I knew we were screwed. Another huge bureaucracy run by self-serving, politically motivated bureaucrats and staffed by non-accountable civil servants.

  14. LC Robohobo Comment by LC Robohobo

    I knew that the TSA was a sham when I saw an elderly gentleman in his 80’s, at least, at the San Jose, Ca airport being frisked by possible Muslim agent. The old guy was most likely a WWII vet, IMHO. He had trouble holding his arms at the required position parallel to the floor and they forced him to hold them at that postion the whole time they were doing their search. It really, really pissed me off that these obvious fu-cktards put this guy thru the ordeal and laughed and smiled about it the whole time. I wanted to rearrange their craniums for them. There should be some common sense applied to the whole thing and it is obviously sorely lacking.

    I know a few things about security. I used to design high security systems in a past career. All the airport security screening systems do is concentrate targets in one place and make possible mayhem more thorough. They would not stop someone who really wanted to do harm for more than a few seconds. All it does is p-ss off the rest of us who know better. More time should be spent profiling those who fit the profile of those who ARE causing worldwide mayhem daily. The rest of us should have to show our boarding passes, have our carry-on’s xrayed and be let thru. Taking off our shoes is just brain dead.

    But, it is the government placing these ridiculous obstacles in the way of loyal citizens. And to what ends? I hate to sound like a conspiracy theorist but it MAY be just a step in getting us used to random police searches. The TSA is now making random gate searches right before passengers WHO HAVE ALREADY PASSED THE ENTRANCE SCREENING! More gestapo type tactics are coming to the forefront every day.

    This thread just got me going on some of the ridiculous things I have seen recently. It may be time to press the reset button in this country if we cannot maintain a reasoned conservative government in that cesspit called Washington. If the Libtards get into power it will only get worse. Be prepared for it.

    I am very worried about the state of this country these days but I hope I am worrying for no good reason.

    LC Robohobo-

    Your San Jose story sounds reminiscent of what happened to former South Dakota governor and Congressional Medal of Honor recipient General Joe Foss. The TSA yoyos freaked out over a key chain given to him by Charlton Heston, which they thought might be a bullet, and his CMOH, which they thought resembled a ninja throwing star. General Foss was 83 at the time and they just about strip searched him three different times before he could board his flight. Ironically enough, he now has an airport named after him.

    I’m not Catholic, but I did scoot around the net a bit and though I couldn’t track down anything specific on rules, there were articles and postings on Nun’s wearing normal everyday clothing nowadays. I would assume any restrictions are set by the Order.

    If the lady has earrings on (your eyes are probably better than mine) or it’s just the lighting, I can’t tell. Her wimple isn’t exactly the same as every other one I’ve seen. I usually thing in terms of the “Flying Nun” type of head wear.

    Oh, and a friend of mine, who is Catholic, pointed out that outside of the wedding band, they usually also wear a cross.

  20. ACLPoo Comment by ACLPoo

    If only there was a way we could get muslims to permanently boycott a particular airline - promising never to fly it again - I would buy up stocks and buy tickets for men/women of the Christian cloth with every spare cent I had.
    Could you imagine? An airline with NO mUSLIMS? We could get rid of security altogether! No need for special meals, air fresheners, passports, it would be paradise!
    Even if we could do it as a sociological experiment - ask mUslims to avoid a particular airline, see it flourish, and basically show them how they affect our society. They would see why they’re no longer welcome, how they’ve made us this way. Then ask them to leave, preferably towards mecca in a trampling herd.

    Yes, I wonder if muslimes ever ponder, what OUR society would be like without THEM instead of what theirs would be like without us?
    Could you imagine our society without muslims? If we cut off all ties with the muslim world, in every way, just like bin laden wants, how long before they face famine/slaughter? Without western oil purchases, without foreign aid, without military protection? I know that scumbag Putin would be selling nukes to the lowest bidder, but still, how long before we’re zipping along in electric or hydrogen cars, without any security concerns?

  24. Terrapod Comment by Terrapod

    ACLPoo

    You have backed into the key issue. The ideal solution would indeed be to tackle the energy issue in a sane fashion, which to me (an engineer by training) means a comprehensive program to:
    1) Develop and exploit sources of oil under our control
    2) Develop coal gasification and conversion technology
    3) Build new, safer, better-controlled nuclear generating facilites along the entire length of the Mississippi, Ohio and any other river or lake that will provide adequate cooling water, along with activating waste storage in Nevada.
    4) Set up incentives for private industry to improve battery or other energy storage soutions, solar cell efficiency improvements and so on (note I did not say establish Gov’t run or funded operations - use tax incentives or moratoriums only).

    I could go on, but if we pursued the above, I think we could be independent of the ME oil in under 10 years. Of course, I leave for last the single largest impediment to this every happening - irrational, power crazed, politica correctness driven, sub human politicians which some morons keep voting into office.

  26. DJ Allyn,  ITW Comment by DJ Allyn, ITW

    Okay… So?

    You act as if people haven’t dressed up as priests, nuns, pregnant women or used babies to smuggle drugs or anything else in, out or around this country.

    You are assuming all of this is solely about terrorism. It is about security. Profiling an Arab male in his twenties isn’t going to stop a myriad of other potential security risks.

    Yeah, it looks ridiculous for a TSR officer to be searching a nun if you are only looking at it from a potential terrorist angle. You want to profile for Arab Males 18-40 and let all others go through. But there is more threats to security than the statistically unlikely terrorist attack.

    I fly a lot. I have been pulled aside twice to be frisked or wanded. No big deal. I have seen it done to other people. No big deal. At least we know that someone is doing something.

    I have seen people get indignant when they are asked to show the contents of their bags or purses. They take it out on the TSR — who are only there to do a job of trying to keep things safe. If that means that occasionally they look up the skirts of a nun — so be it. I am sure the nun didn’t care.

  27. sig94 Comment by sig94

    Profiling an Arab male in his twenties isn’t going to stop a myriad of other potential security risks.

    But that’s exactly how the joooooos (El Al) do it. They profile everyone, even if you’re not an arab. Tell us, how many planes have been hijacked or blown up in the last twenty-five years by non-islamic sources as opposed to moslem nutjobs? What or who is this “myriad” of other security risks that we should be concerned about? Are the Irish Catholics getting into the act now? Or mebbe those pesky, certifiably insane Methodists? Baptists? Norwegians? Rotary Club members?

    Profiling is not random searches. The only reason to search that nun is if she fits the profile (one way ticket, no luggage, ticket purchased under certain other circumstances, there are more).

  29. Unregistered Comment by Special Ed

    I’m afraid I’m with DJ on this one. The individual agents are merely following the SOP given them. It’s their jobs if they depart from it. They usually don’t like it either.

    Part of the problem with TSA agents is that they are paid on a national scale. What gets you fairly professional former military types in Spokane, Washington gets you “just got off of gov’t assistance and only TWO misdemeanors” in NYC or LA. Ya gets what ya pay for.

    If terrorista have any brains, and some of them do, they recruit non-profiled mules to ’splode stuff, so’s they can skirt security.

    I was in the armed response business for a while, and the best security for our airways would be lifting all restrictions on carry-ons (except total volume and weight, of course). Take the money spent on TSA screenings and invest it in more and more diverse airmarshals. Place a minimum of one per aircraft, and more at random or “high-risk” flights.
    I guarantee that if I was allowed my 1911 clone on any flight I’m on, the flight would either get to its destination or land early to offload dead terrorists.
    Yes, I’m that good. The “Special” is not an ironic affectation, it’s an accurate descriptor.

    Nothing wrong with searching the nun. After all her cherry is so old it might have fruit flies and releasing them in a new ecosystem could have disasterous implications! :twisted:

    As long as she wasn’t searched instead of a terrorist I-Slam because we can’t offend these vermin before their mass murders. :em38:


    You want to profile for Arab Males 18-40 and let all others go through. But there is more threats to security than the statistically unlikely terrorist attack

    So terrorist attacks are statistically unlikely to come from A-Rabs 18-40? WTF? Christ, Dave you are in Um Yeah Bizzaro-World obtuse here. You have officially entered the “fire is not hot, it’s actually cold” rubber room crowd.

  32. DJ Allyn,  ITW Comment by DJ Allyn, ITW

    Tell us, how many planes have been hijacked or blown up in the last twenty-five years by non-islamic sources as opposed to moslem nutjobs?

    Well, considering that most hijackings occur in the Middle East, it is highly likely that the perpetrators are going to be Muslim.

    Of course, how do you identify a “Muslim”? Are they going to be exclusively Arab, or didn’t you know that Muslims are made up of members of every race?

    We went through a period here in this country of a rash of hijackings to Cuba, or to free Cuban prisoners. We went without a hijacking here from 1969 until 1991, and that was a non-Muslim hijacking.

    * The collapse of the Soviet Empire and discord in China has contributed greatly to the distribution of hijackings since 1989. Hijackings in Russia, other states of the former Soviet Union, and in China account for more than 40 percent of the global total. [source]

    That last source was from February 2000, roughly eighteen months before 9/11, but I think it is still valid.

    The point is, there are no ‘traditional’ hijackings. Yes, the flavor-of-the-day is Muslim, but that is a faith, not an appearance — as in the case of this nun.

    You don’t know by looking at this nun that she is NOT a Muslim, or a hijacker, or even a drug smuggler. You assume that she is a nun solely because of the way she dresses.

    What or who is this “myriad” of other security risks that we should be concerned about? Are the Irish Catholics getting into the act now? Or mebbe those pesky, certifiably insane Methodists? Baptists? Norwegians? Rotary Club members?

    As I recall, you are a cop, right? And you have to ask that question?

    How many criminals have you seen that “dress the part”? Do all of the criminals you encounter fit a certain profile? If you think they do, then you are letting a whole lot of them slip by.

    Profiling is not random searches. The only reason to search that nun is if she fits the profile (one way ticket, no luggage, ticket purchased under certain other circumstances, there are more).

    We don’t know if this nun was “profiled”. We don’t know if this was simply a random search.

    Maybe her name matched a similar “flagged” name. Maybe she appeared nervous, or had acted strangely.

    I’m afraid I’m with DJ on this one.

    Dag nab it! How am I going to keep up my perfect “annoyance rating” if people are going to start agreeing with me?

    You take that back, right now!

    Take the number of flights in this country and the number of hijackings we’ve had in say, just the past ten, twenty, or even forty years. Hijackings of any kind are statistically a zero. So when I say that it is statistically unlikely, I mean that it is just that: not impossible, just unlikely.

    Where can I get your rubber spine so I can bend so far backwards to ignore the 10 ton elephant style obvious. I could retire and get rich as a limbo champion.

    Apparently, critical thinking is not a strong suit of yours. Perhaps you hadn’t noticed that we aren’t experiencing a rash of hijackings by anyone here in the US — Muslim or Non-Muslim.

    But as a general rule? Going back to the height of hijackings in this country — the sixties and seventies — the four Muslim-hijacked planes can’t even compare to the scores that were done to either get to Cuba or release Cuban prisoners held in US custody.

    Yes, we have only had four planes hijacked by Muslims in this country — all on the same day. That does not constitute an epidemic.

    Am I waiting and worrying about if and when the next one is going to happen? Nope — and why should I? I could sit in fear or I could just wait until it happens — because eventually it will and there is nothing on God’s Green Earth that is going to stop it.

    There are several elephants in the room — along with lions and tigers and bears, oh my! There is always going to be senseless acts of violence — some more spectacular then others. You can only hope that you don’t get caught up in it when it happens, but if you are — such is life. Actually, it is fate. We are all going to come to an end someday, and there is no guarantee that yours or mine is going to be slipping away peacefully in our sleep.

  42. Emperor Misha I Comment by Emperor Misha I

    Well, Deej, I guess the conclusion is that the absence of follow-ups to 9/11 is entirely because muslim males aged 18 to 40 aren’t a threat at all, except in our fevered, Neocon imaginations. In spite of what they themselves keep telling us and threatening us with.

    It has absolutely NOTHING to do with us keeping them busy elsewhere and intercepting their plans before they can be carried out.

    Also, for it to make any sense to start profiling the likely suspects, more people have to die. 3,000 just ain’t enough to justify that kind of police state, racist intrusion. It was just a fluke, an insignificant outlier. We need more dead bodies first, then we can react later.

    How many would be acceptable to you? 3,000 more? 10,000? 50,000?

    Folks, could it just be that the elimination of highjackings in the U.S. in particular and the world in general is precisely because of screenings and searches? Profiling is exactly what is needed to “adjust” your focus, but a hefty dose of vigilance also helps. Being screened annoys me to no end, certainly, but it beats having a would-be “martyr” taking me along to meet his 72 virgins (I split myself laughing silly at this religious nonsense :em99: everytime I read it). NEVER assume your ennemy will not use a disguise to get an edge (remember the Ardennes 1944?). And the world is, and has been, WAY too patient with Islam. I do not get angry at the security staff for doing their job, but at the very people who have caused this to become vital to our security. Yes, there is always a chance someone will get through, but at least, lest make it much more difficult for anyone wanting to try it. I prefer one seriously dead “martyr” shot by airport security as opposed to having S&R personnel combing through wreckage anytime. My personal inconvience is not worth the lives of my fellow passengers…

    I am with DJ on this one, if only because I can see that some smart Islamic hag might see this as a way to slip one by. Of course it’s not likely, especially given that the paperwork would also have to be in order. Still … all it takes is one. So if you make a point of profiling middle eastern males AND doing a random screening of everyone else, then it keeps them guessing. And I’m for anything that inconveniences them and screws with their minds. Bad habits are hard to break, though.

    What a fitting title. Are you scared yet?

    I know you’ve bought into this modern-day propaganda similar to the “Kraut” and “Japs” of WWII and the “gooks” of the Korean and Vietnam Wars, but you have to step back to realize that it is just that: propaganda.

    It is designed to make you think that there really is some scarey boogieman out there who “hates your freedom”, and isn’t afraid to die. That they are coming in waves to America to level our cities and enslave our wimmin and chillens’.

    I hate to break it to you but these are people who are only trying to take their OWN land back. They want control of their lives and destiny, not giving a bloody shit about some nation on the other side of the planet.

    I had a whole thought set out in my head, but the drugs I am taking is causing it to fade in and out.

    I will try tomorrow until then, good night.

    What a fitting title. Are you scared yet?

    Anybody that ain’t scared by now won’t be able to understand many other things, people and situations that they won’t survive.

    They scare me too.

    Your comment about about the arabs just wanting to get “their” land back is somewhat disturbing. So wanting a piece of land that NOBODY wanted before Israel was born gives them excuses to blow up children, turn their own kids into “martyrs”, ram airliners into buildings, bombs trains and tunnels if I follow the intent of your comment. Explain this to me then, why is it that Israel has turned a piece of barren land into a flourishing, blooming real estate while their arabs neighbours still live in medieval serfdom, controlled from birth to death in every aspect of their lives. They DO NOT have a say in the way their lives will be lived, it is already all decided for them. Tel Aviv is a vibrant city, growing and full of promise, while their neighbouring arabs “capitals” as a whole, are still depictions of life in the 7th century. The arabs still live in their fecces while Israel is marching on to a bright future. Let’s face it, Israel is here TO STAY. Should the arabs ever try to interfere, or worse, start playing the big league with nuclear weapons, rest assured that the rest of the world will severely deal with such nations, having the perfect excuse to finally eradicate the earth of this disease called Islam. You think I’m tough? The families and friends of those who were killed during 9/11 would do the arab thing and go down in the streets in celebration. Wanting their land back?!? They LOST that land trying to KILL the newborn Israel, and got sorted out. Everytime the arabs tried to destroy Israel, they lost more land, and now, you simply figure that they just want it back?!? No, what they want is to eradicate Israel from the map, in the process killing every man, woman and child and trying to save face after so many defeats. And defeated they were. Arabs just DO NOT see beyond the immediate perceived possible gains, they are totally unable to comprehend the long term consequences of their actions, so they keep trying, and the world is a worse place for it. Please stop trying to find excuses for these animals. They are kept in servitude by a belief system dreamed up by a mad pedophile, and having Israel next door boldly moving ahead is just not acceptable to their “leaders” who keep them chained. What if the arab populations were to start wanting a green, lush, progressive place to live and start wanting to make their own choices. Control, pure and simple, that’s what islam is all about, submission, like dogs. Never forget, never forgive. You are a civilized human being no doubt, finding excuses for the very same maniacs who attacked YOUR nation is not only disloyal, it is pure treason! The airliners slamming into these buildings were NOT “propaganda”, but an act of absolute savagery. May Israel live for ever!

    So wanting a piece of land that NOBODY wanted before Israel was born gives them excuses to blow up children, turn their own kids into “martyrs”, ram airliners into buildings, bombs trains and tunnels if I follow the intent of your comment.

    Uh, the assumption that “NOBODY wanted” this land is assinine. Clearly, the people that inhabited the land wanted it. By 1948, there were approximately 1.35 million Arabs and 650,000 Jews living between the Jordan and the Mediterranean, more Arabs than had ever lived in Palestine before, and more Jews than had lived there since Roman times.

    Could it have been worked out? Sure — but it wasn’t. Neither side wanted a compromise. Much of the land had been purchased by the Zionists from absent landlords in Beirut, not taking into consideration that much of the land being sold was being worked by Arab squatters who had been there for generations.

    The majority of Palistinians would just like to have a contiguous land that they can self-govern. Israelis want to have peace with those around them. The problem is, many of the Palestinians were driven from the land and ended up in other countries in the Middle East as refugees — not wanted by the host countries.

    I have been to the West Bank and the Golan Heights. I’ve seen the refugee camps, and they are horrific. I hear the argument — mostly by clueless people — that they put themselves into that situation.

    Horse Pussy. Most of the people in the refugee camps were born there, and it is all they know. I am sure if YOU were born in a place like that, you would be some kind of animal also.

    The problem, as I see it — and I am working from my own opinion here — is that because most of these people (and they ARE people regardless on how you want to de-humanize them) have lived in the camps most or all of their lives, they cannot just be released and expected to live a good life.

    It is a catch-22.

    This whole thing has been mishandled from day one, and it has continued to be mishandled. Here is something that a lot of people get really confused with: Muslims don’t hate Jews, they just don’t like the current “Zionist” government.

    Okay, I need to lay down again, as the nurse just gave me my meds.

    I must object to your comment that people not scared wouldn’t be able to understand relevant people and situations. I am well aware of what could happen. I am not scared. The odds of my being killed in a terrorist attack or hijacking are infitismal (sp?) out of all of the people in this country. Why should I worry about myself? The odds of my dying are most likely by a car crash or one of my myriad medical conditions.

    I do worry that things be safe for the country as a whole.

    Speaking of screening, at Rochester, they put me in a box and hit me with puffs of air–apparently it detects chemicals (mass spec?). It sounds like a great idea–does anyone know if that is common?

    Don’t think banning muslims and getting rid of security is a good idea: random psychos. I’m sure it would be great fun to hijack a plane for some people–the ultimate power trip. There are other political issues. What if a flight to Spain is taken over by Basque separatists? Flights to Columbia would face left-wing and right-wing terrorists. What about flying to Taiwan with someone who wants to protest mainland Chinese policy? What about a Falun Gong protestor on a flight to China (you know those violent Buddhists)? The world is full of trouble spots that do not involve muslims.
