Default The TSA- Mission Creep.

Mission Creep: This Tennessee Highway Is Now Patrolled by TSA - Conor Friedersdorf - National - The Atlantic

So the TSA was going to set up "checkpoints" across Tennessee,and by all accounts it was going to do so on a PERMANENT basis.

BUT because of the backlash of negative blog comments,they said PSYCH!

Is The TSA Screening Drivers In Tennessee? Not Anymore

And now they claim that it was never their intention of staying in Tennessee permanently,but that its part of their random,mobile "VIPR" (oooh what a SCARY acronym,right out of Saturday morning cartoons) program.

TSA believes that in order to "keep your children safe" from the "evil (fill in the blank)",you must accept random violations of the 4th amendment like this one:

Prison Planet.com » DHS Announces Halloween Checkpoints In Tennessee To Keep Children Safe

I don't know about YOU,but there is something about a government that would intentionally "let walk" thousands of guns across our border and into the hands of organized narco terrorists,in order to claim legitimacy to advance its anti-2A agenda and raise its stupid "assault weapons ban" up from the grave yard of failed policy,something about a government that has a consistent record of intentionally creating problems in which the "solution" is more power for itself at the expense of OUR LIBERTY,that I don't trust,especially when they want to "keep the children safe".

Seriously,would you trust a group of thugs who's resume includes gun running and groping strangers around YOUR kids?

Far from needing government to keep our children safe from whatever evil menace it can scare suburban housewives with,we really need to keep our children's freedom safe from the government that wants to destroy the legacy of liberty that we SHOULD be handing down to them from our Founders.

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."

I was looking forward to seeing how those ole boys put up with it. Especially the ones somewhere between Nashville and Knoxville.

Some of them apparently adopted the new USMC motto: No better friend, no worse enemy.

They'll give you the shirt off their back if you treat them right, and if you don't, you might just disappear. At least that's been my experience.

The article indicated the TN Highway Patrol officers were doing the actual inspecting; i don't know how many people (even the ever-more-policed truck drivers) would pull over for just the TSA.

They can kiss the fattest part of my ass.

So he's going to fund my next handgun purchase? Schweet!!!

Looks to me like he's been busy taking security away from the civilians instead.

...wow...things must have changed since I had little guys during Halloween. My kids went with an adult, up and down our neighborhood streets. I never once remember them going trick-or-treat on the highways!!! At least one adult was armed, and I don't need the likes of the TSA or DHS or any other agency safe guarding my kids during trick-or-treat....I am fully capable of handling that myself.

They keep reaching out, probing, trying things out......it does appear they are scrambling for more civil power and control....

As soon as you quote Prison Planet or any other Alex Jones front group, you lose almost all credability with me. I know Alex Jones. He is a little bit insane and a huge helping of hype. Mostly Bull Sh!t.

WTS, about 5-10% of his "stuff" is real. Somewhere in the back of his stories is a shred of truth. He just takes it to the nth degree. If TSA dog handlers were assisting the THP with truck checks, then suddenly there is a vast conspiracy? Maybe a couple of dogs needed more search time to get certified? That makes Alex Jones day. That is perfect for him. Suddenly TSA dogs are sniffing your grandma's crotch for drugs in her home in Boca.

anyone ever notice the very Nazi-ish "sobriety check points"!?!?

Now i am all for safe driving conditions, but having to pass thru a "check point" in a supposedly free nation bothers the hell out of me. But every one loves the idea because its "in the name of safety" so its ok to give up a freedom.

Incrementalism kiddies, incrementalism! They take your (OUR) rights a piece at a time. First check points, then the patriot act...if i took the time, i am sure i could come up with more examples.

Admit it folks, you no longer live in a free state....you live in a police state and it gets a little worse every year.
