LA Times - 'Shut Up And Be Scanned'
From Jim Kirwan
The ownership of the Los Angeles Times are the same people that control the
criminally-invassive polices that TSA is currently using and trying to justify.
That rag that used to be called the LA Times ought to be subjected to a review of their records and their management - which is at least as thorough as are the searches of people
which they are advocataing against here.
If this is fair and unobreustive enough for them to
advocate for the thought and mind control policies in our airports - then the LA Times
ought not to mind having their publication subjected to exactly the same policies
as their readers are being subjected to whenever they choose to fly.
Here is the new Logo for the LA Times that ought to BE their masthead!
Good piece, just remove the word "perhaps" from the last sentence.

Los Angeles Times Editorial Staff, Shut Up,
Stay Home and Suck Your Thumbs
November 20, 2010 by Szandor Blestman
This is a response to an editorial published in the Los Angeles Times on November 17th, 2010 entitled "Shut up and be scanned." ...
These people think that the TSA has not gone too far. They claim that the TSA hasn't yet crossed the line. According to them, that line isn't crossed until they start giving every passenger boarding a plane a cavity search. That's when you should start complaining, citizen, after they have bent you over a table and stuck a finger up your butt. Until then, don't express your concerns for either having your naked picture taken or being groped by strangers. These types of things are a "necessary evil" according to the wiser than thou editorial staff at the Los Angeles Times.
I say, evil is not necessary. I say, continue to express your concerns and exercise your first amendment rights. I say, continue to bitch, moan and protest those who want to violate your natural fourth amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures. I don't believe for a moment that the TSA has made flying safer in this country. I think that they haven't done anything but make air travel in this nation more difficult. ...
Do you realize that our nation has become one of the most draconian in the world when it comes to air travel? Do you realize that our measures are now far more intrusive than even the Israelis? Do you realize how much money this nation has lost due to tourists deciding not to come here because of the TSA? Do you realize that we're in a recession and how many jobs the tourism industry could supply if not for the TSA? Do you realize that high level politicians and former politicians are now making millions, if not billions, from the sale of these machines? How much longer do you think Americans should wait before they speak up? If we wait until we have to strip naked and bend over cold metal counters to have our orifices probed before we can board a flight, we have waited too long. ...
You want to tell people to shut up and be scanned, to just shut up and take it, to just go along to get along no matter your humiliation, to just stop trying to change what many consider unnecessary, unethical, or even illegal, to just allow those in power to set up bureaucracies that so overtly trample on individual rights, to just silently accept the tyranny? Well, I suppose that's fine. I support your right to express your opinion. I support your right to allow yourselves to voluntarily allow strangers to irradiate you, take naked pictures of you, and even grab your genitals if you so wish. Don't be surprised, however, when those of us who disagree berate you. Don't be surprised when the waking masses begin ignoring you for supporting such statist authoritarian policies. Mostly, don't be surprised when the state starts telling you what to say, when to say it and when to shut up. ... ...perhaps they already do.
