It’s now coming down to the wire as TSA employees are even ready to opt out (of their jobs), fearing that they might be getting sick from radiation released from the body scanners at airports.
While there have even been “Opt Out” campaigns organized in protest of such police state technologies by concerned passengers and citizens, this TSA bobble could usher in new class-action lawsuits by airport employees and TSA staff.
However, this likely will not change the mentality of the federal government and how they treat traveling US citizens. As one thing is for sure, now there is now a new passenger underclass.
In fact, Christopher Elliot wrote, “The TSA likes to talk about the “haves” — the elite-level frequent fliers, the soldiers in uniform, the crew-members, who can now almost always bypass the scanners, the shoe-removal and the pat-downs, and get to the gate quickly. It’s received a lot of positive coverage from an unskeptical mainstream media about those programs.
It doesn’t really say much about the “have-nots” — the passengers with medical conditions and implants that set off the magnetometers, the folks who don’t fly frequently enough to be part of the Pre-Check club and yeah, the opt-outs.
Actually, opt-outs are arguably the biggest segment of the new passenger underclass. The TSA doesn’t release statistics on air travelers who refuse a full-body scan, but anecdotal evidence suggests their numbers are large and growing.”
To say the least, the way TSA is treating US citizens now is disturbing. Apparently we have entered a Nazi style fascist dictatorship in America, and have already crossed the point of no return.
This last time I traveled I had to take 8 flights in the course of a week period. For the most part, I had your typical TSA experience. You know, the one where I always opt out, and they do a complete pat-down. Although I have to say, you can tell that TSA agents do not like it when a slave (citizen) opts out, as it causes them extra work.
As a matter of fact, the last time I opted out was in the Denver International Airport (DIA) last week. The TSA agent that was going to conduct the full pat-down said to me, “What, are you afraid to go through a magnetic scanner?”
I replied, “Don’t even try it Bro, I know too much about this technology”.
The TSA agent followed up by mumbling something under his tongue, demonstrating that there is indeed a new slave class in America.
The TSA agent didn’t want to hear it, but I told him anyway that he was being poisoned by radiation. He continued to treat me like a slave.
However he had better wake up as, “There have been complaints of radiation exposure-related illness made by Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) to the union”, a TSA official said in a report with KTLA5 news.
The report went on to read, “In addition to health concerns, many passengers had complained that the old body X-ray scanners were a little too revealing.
The TSA says that the new millimeter-wave scanners can not only catch the bad guys better, but the radiation emitted is well below safety standards.
So what can you expect? Ticket holders still have to “assume the position” like the old back-scatter machines.
The new machines don’t use X-ray, but rather radio-frequency waves that are considered safer.
The union for TSA workers says there is something called a dosimeter badge that measures radiation exposure, but they are not commonly used.
Right now, the government is holding a 90-day commenting period for the public to weigh in on the new scanners.”
What all of this demonstrates is that yes the federal government is poisoning us in more ways than we know, all the while, conditioning us.
