    Go Texas! This is just the first state to push back against the unconstitutional searches TSA is conducting at airports. Utah will be following suit in their next session. The federal government needs to be reminded that they work for us and that we aren't their subjects.

    What exactly does he mean by "intrusive touching"?

    I was thinking about applying for 'Senior Groper' at the TSA, but Rick Perry is putting a Kaibosh on my career plans. Damn you Rick Perry!

    Well, Perry just lost any chance he had of getting MY support for a Presidential run.

    Why? You enjoy getting groped?

    Go, Perry. The TSA represents all that is wrong with this gov't. It treats every citizen like a terrorist while doing nothing to hamper actual terrorists. It intrudes on the most private areas of life in the name of "public safety." Expensive and ineffective while being P.C.
    Perry is right to tap into the latent anger the citizens feel toward this rogue org.

    Would you folks rather be groped occasionally, or strip-searched, strapped into a straitjacket, and secured in a 5-point harness in your seat for the flight EVERY SINGLE TIME; because that's MY preference on how to secure these aircraft.

    Well goody. Is he going to extend that to Law Enforcement Officers?

    And you do know that searches are in lieu of going through scanners. Now people will either be forced to go through scanners or not fly?

    Because flying isn't a right. It's a service. And airlines have the "right" to refuse service.

    Michigan also considers criminalizing 'intrusive' searches by airport screeners... We need to take this nation back and remove the false BS that is taking place in the name of "Security"

    The moment these states start demanding that law-abiding gun owners be allowed to carry concealed weapons onto planes I'll be more than happy to back criminalization of "intrusive" searches by the TSA.

    UNTIL THEN, since the TSA sees fit to remove from ME the RIGHT to carry a weapon for my own defense, I will in no way support ANYONE complaining about the TSA restricting their RIGHT to privacy. The moment they disarm me, they become liable for ENSURING my safety beyond ANY reasonable doubt. I've already noted my preference for the system which should be used.
