The New York Times reported "As he left Washington on Friday, Mr. Boehner headed across the Potomac River to Reagan National Airport, which was bustling with afternoon travelers. But there was no waiting in line for Mr. Boehner, who was escorted around the metal detectors and body scanners, and taken directly to the gate."
Airline pilots have been getting screened by the TSA. Old ladies obviously not terrorists get the "pat down feel up" but John Boehner just walks on by.
Who feels your nutsack before you fly your own airplane? If terrorists were going to bomb us they would just buy personal planes and dive bomb targets. How freaking smart does an idiot have to be to pull off bad stuff and stupid shit?
They haven't been doing it. And we are not safer because George Bush and his crew added dozens of overlapping intelligence services. the "underwear bomber" made a dramatic final call to his father that he found so alarming, the father approached Nigerian officials who took him directly to the CIA's station chief in the Nigerian capital. They were warned several times and not one of the overlapping spy groups managed to keep him off an airplane.
I do not believe the USA is under such imminent threat from terrorists. We were just fine before 9-11. You don't think it is really easy for people to launch nukes at the USA? No matter how safe you think you are ~ YOU ARE NO SAFER. And you are no less safe then you were on September 10, 2001. I was there then and many years before and I am here with all of you now.
Boo! Did I scare you?
I really don't care that Boehner walked on by the scanners and I don't think you or I should be treated any differently. No one should be subjected to molestation by the Government and being irradiated should not be an option.
I do feel that if anyone should be getting mandatory screening it is a public servant. Drug dealers are moving a lot of dope and cash, how many are politicians?
John Boehner was handing out checks on the house floor to buy votes and probably needs to be butt probed, x-rayed and given a prison style pat-down feel-up from the biggest, ugliest TSA guard.
If he isn't going to be searched you sure as hell shouldn't be.
