As if to add injury to insult, the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) is now checking out your drinks as you prepare to board U.S flights. While they are checking drinks you bring from home through their Nazi like “security” check points, they are also testing drinks that you have purchased once you pass security.
The following clip was taken just this week at Columbus Ohio Airport. You can see two of Janet Napolitano’s finest going around and testing passenger’s drinks for explosives. That’s right they use a swab over liquid to see if it has explosive material in it.
What is amazing to watch is how no one seems to be bothered at all that this is being done. We aren’t talking about people just entering the airport. We’re talking about people who have been through security, the grope downs, the naked body scanner, and having their belongings rifled through, who are just waiting to board their plane.
One passenger joked and affirmed what I was thinking as he told of his encounter with the TSA explosive drink agents,
“My wife and son came back from a coffee shop just around the corner, then we were approached. I asked them what they were doing. One of the TSA ladies said that they were checking for explosive chemicals (as we are drinking them). I said “really – inside the terminal? You have got to be kidding me.” I asked them if they wanted to swab us all. She responded with something like, ‘yes sometimes we need to do that’. I then asked if she wanted a urine sample…nonetheless, the TSA is way out of control,” he said.
Does TSA not use any common sense? You would think if a person was sitting there sipping their drink that the possibility of the person actually having some explosive in it would be non existant, less they stand up and the rattling around would cause an explosion of either their head or their stomach. Why then would you even want them to move? Apparently there is no common sense in the TSA.
We know that the TSA provides no real security and that the millions spent on the naked body scanners have proved to be an insecurity. We know that TSA even makes women pump breast milk in front of them, check the elderly’s underwear, make us take our shoes off, empty our pockets and go through strip searches. We know they target attractive women and steal from passenger’s bags. We know that the TSA allowed an illegal to remain in security for nearly twenty years before he was caught, and on top of that, they weren’t the ones to catch him. We even know the TSA This crossed the line of the Fourth Amendment long ago. But now testing your drink? While you are drinking it? This is a bit ridiculous and should be immediately stopped and the TSA disbanded from airports.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
