Sign the Abolish TSA petition at WhiteHouse.gov

 

I know, what’s the point, right? For me, I just want to really, really embarrass the hell out of them with like a zillion signatures in a few weeks. Looks like they’re getting close to a thousand a day so far and the WH just launched this ‘We the People’ thing so a lot of folks haven’t even heard of it yet.

“Last month the White House created an online petition system through which constituents can directly voice any grievances and concerns to the US government.
Any petition that reaches 25,000 signatures (5,000 originally) is promised an official reply. This weekend the first petitions will be closing, and already many have far exceeded the required number of signatures. “

The soul of America to be sold at auction

The following article, written by Jonathan Benson, was originally published at http://www.truthwinds.com/siterun_data/government/homeland_security_patriot_act_fema/news.php?q=1308763416.

I get the point, and agree on a certain level. On the other hand, I think ‘willful surrender’ is absolutely the correct terminology. It’s not just their stuff they’re choosing to hand over, but their essential rights and human dignity when people buy a plane ticket and enter the airport. The criminal actions of DHS/TSA are public knowledge. If you still choose to fly, how is that not willfully surrendering, even aiding and abetting?

Stop it. Write your airlines and tell them why you’re not flying and demand that they bring their full weight to bear in lobbying for your rights and liberty, which you refuse to surrender for the privilege of purchasing their services. Money talks, and you say it all when you give yours away at the ticket counter or in the security line – or when you purchase stolen merchandise and encourage the criminals in Washington to keep it coming. Even if you can’t change the system, it’s still the right thing to do. This is disgusting on so many levels.

GOVERNMENT ‘SURPLUS’ STORES NOW SELLING PERSONAL ITEMS TSA STEALS FROM PASSENGERS !!

(NaturalNews) If you have ever wondered what happens to the countless barrels of personal items that the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) confiscates (steals) from air travelers every single day, you might be surprised to know that state governments are now reselling these supposedly “dangerous” items in government surplus stores for extra revenue.

According to a recent article in the Austin American-Statesman, Texas state surplus stores are reaping hundreds of thousands of dollars in new revenue every year for the state by selling travelers’ “legally” stolen goods.

Formerly reserved for legitimate surplus items, state surplus stores in Texas are making a killing on the thousands of new “security threat” items being stolen by the TSA, which is, of course, the result of artificially-generated government paranoia. So harmless personal items like snow globes, for instance, are now in great supply at the surplus stores because they contain more than the three ounces of liquid permitted by the TSA.

Most travelers, of course, would never in their wildest imaginations think that a snow globe is a security threat, which is why many are shocked in the security line to discover that their simple souvenir is considered a terrorist threat by the TSA. But apparently that threat magically diminishes once the government decides to resell that same snow globe for cash to fill its coffers — because surely the thousands of snow globes the shops receive are not inspected for the mythical explosives they could contain, prior to hitting surplus shelves.

Humorously, both the TSA and the agencies that are selling the stolen items refuse to admit that they are even confiscating them in the first place. According to the Statesman, a worker at a Texas surplus shop said, concerning how the items were obtained, “We say willfully surrendered.” Using this same logic, of course, a man who holds up a woman and steals her purse did not actually steal — the woman merely “willfully surrendered” her purse upon having a gun pointed in her face.

In reality, this fictitious robbery scenario, as absurd as it sounds, is exactly what the TSA is doing to air travelers every single day in the US. It is also what the illegal IRS does to American taxpayers with its “voluntary” income tax.

When presented with options that include inability to fly, arrest, imprisonment, or even being killed, most people will likely “willfully surrender” whatever is demanded of them, whether it is something as large as half their income, or something as miniscule as a plastic snow globe.

WTF(wjd)?

Disclaimer: My words below pave a somewhat long and winding road that leads beyond the normal scope of content at FedUpFlyers.org. Some may not wish to follow, and I respect that. I don’t want to unfairly exploit the attention of the kind people who log on to read my criticism and others’ regarding DHS/TSA’s unlawful groping and scoping of the traveling public and related topics. So I’ve carefully included a note in the text – an escape hatch, as it were, marking the point of my departure into the ethics and metaphysical guts of the matter at hand. That said, I invite you now to sit back, relax, and enjoy the read.

Most readers, I hope, will recall the incident last month in Memphis in which the crew of a commercial flight bound for Charlotte, N.C. refused to fly until two passengers were removed from the aircraft. The passengers were Muslim scholars attempting to travel to an Islamic conference focused this year on the topic of Islamophobia and discrimination against Muslims in the U.S.

Those are still pretty much the only hard facts that have been released to the public as of this writing – plenty to incite the typical torrent of speculation, commentary, blathering idiotic bigotry, hurt feelings, and late night comedy routines. Yeah, it’s great fun, but let’s be honest and fair: so far, unless we’re tangibly connected to the event in some official way, none of us has enough information to draw upon in order to frame a meaningful conclusion or comment on the situation.

It would be especially imprudent and unprofessional for me, as a pilot, to indict the crew based on the data currently available. The media and other rumor mills have reported that the flight pushed off the gate and then returned because the crew was unwilling to continue with the two men on board. That no sound justification has been publicly given for this does not necessarily indicate that such justification does not exist. The pilots (or, as the media usually call them, the pilot) would have been sealed up on the flight deck in front of a locked, reinforced, terrorist-proof door when they made the decision to return to the gate. Whatever prompted their decision presumably happened in the cabin on the other side of that door as they were taxiing out to the runway. Pilots must rely on the cabin crew to keep them apprised of what’s going on back there and make the best decisions they can based on that information. The public has been told nothing about any communications along such lines. So, for now at least, we don’t know what we don’t know.

It has also been reported that Delta agents spoke with the flight crew for over half an hour when they returned to the gate and even apologized to the two men when the pilots insisted upon ejecting them from the flight. On the surface, this might cast an understandable cloud of doubt over the crew’s actions. But I speak from personal experience and a solid familiarity with the stories of numerous colleagues when I say – difficult as it may be to fathom – that unsuspecting pilots are often met with considerable resistance when they decide to remove a threatening or problematic passenger from their plane. Many crews have made the mistake of contacting the airline and asking for a gate agent or supervisor to handle a belligerent drunk, an unstable lunatic threatening violence when asked to turn his phone off or buckle his seat belt, or some other superstar who just has to ruin it for everybody. I was shocked myself when I discovered that some airline support agents, managers, etc. seem completely deaf to the sound of a pilot’s voice calling for the removal of a threatening passenger or asking for police assistance, etc. They’ll go back and talk with the individual in question themselves, then return and say something like, “Okay, I got her to turn her phone off. She says she hasn’t slept and she’s going to her father’s funeral and she’s really upset but she’s sorry and it won’t happen again. Just don’t serve her any more alcohol and I think she’ll be alright…”

Then we say, “Yeah but, um, she broke the flight attendant’s nose.”

“I know, I know,” they mutter, shuffling their feet a bit and trying to muster a sympathetic expression. “But I don’t think we’ll be able to find you another one in time to avoid a late departure.” Then, to the bleeding victim, they say, “Hold pressure right there, like this. Keep your head tilted back. It doesn’t look that bad. You can hold up till you get to Guadalajara, right? Put some ice on it at the hotel tonight – you’ll be fine…”

Okay, maybe I’m embellishing the case a little. The point is pilots can have a hard time finding someone to take an unruly passenger off their hands. Very few of us, I hope, will give in once the decision has been made, but it’s kind of a big deal to deny service to a paying customer and a big responsibility (and potential liability) to those involved. Such cases are the exception and not the rule, of course. Still, it happens a lot more than one would expect in a terror-stricken, post-9/11 world. Besides, absent the ideal solution of a legitimate, professional security division, this kind of situation is really outside the airline’s scope of operational expertise. Fellow pilots, here’s my advice if you need real help in the overly regulated and litigious chaos of the system in which we work: Forget the company and call the control tower directly for law enforcement assistance. They’ll send the fuzz right out without questioning your judgment or prerogative as Pilot-in-Command. Remove the threat now. Sort out the details, ideological conundrums, and conflicts of interest later.

So, not to belabor the point, the bottom line is there may be a lot more to this story in Memphis than any of us has been told so far. Anyway, enough of that – there’s something else I’d like to discuss.

Biometric screening for airline crews: free range serfdom

Last week I wrote about TSA’s new Known Crewmember Program, which will enable crew members to bypass the current airport security screening process (see Who will watch the watchmen?) As I explained, a similar program called CrewPASS has been in limbo for years because no one ever agreed to fund it. One might wonder: why start a new program when they were never able to get the first one up and running? If the money wasn’t there for the former system, is anyone going to be willing to pay for the new one? Maybe the new one will cost less – yeah, that must be it.

Then again, state bureaucracies tend to shy away from things that cost less. Something about having unlimited access to the fruits of everyone else’s labor has that effect on the non-productive class.

And if you toss in some gee-whiz new products from the security and surveillance industry that’ll tastefully facilitate maximum control over the masses (and ensure an even tighter grip on the fruits of their labor), then you’ve got yourself a program worth throwing somebody else’s money at all day long.

Don’t get hung up on the details; economic stimulation is very complex and nobody really expects any of us to keep up with it all. The important thing to know is that it’s working like a charm.

Last week I shared my concerns that the Known Crewmember Program would probably use biometric technology to track the movements of crew members and control our access to the air transportation system and, thus, our means of earning a living. I haven’t had much luck finding specific and reliable details about the “different technical resources” that will distinguish the new program from CrewPASS. But today, here’s what Hugo Martin of the Los Angeles Times had to report:

Details of the proposed system have yet to be worked out, but TSA officials say they plan to hook into airline employee databases and confirm the identities of pilots and flight attendants using biometric measures such as retina scans and fingerprint matching.

That’s the first reliable confirmation I’ve seen using the B word in association with the new program. I fully expect to see a lot more of this as they roll out new screening procedures for the rest of the traveling public over time (especially if/when we win our lawsuit to end the current invasive, illegal, and ineffective security practices).

Tempted as I am to rant for a few thousand words more about why biometric technology is not the solution to the state’s crimes against travelers in the U.S., I trust I don’t need to. If capturing images of our naked bodies and/or physically pawing at us is unreasonable search and seizure (hint: it is), how will the increased control afforded by biometrics in the hands of the tyrants turn us back toward a system that honors our personal dignity, lawful rights, and civil liberty? Are we not driving ourselves further into the totalitarian darkness?

See Martin’s original story in the Los Angeles Times here.

Who will watch the watchmen?

So I got a pilot union propaganda email about the all-new Known Crewmember Program, aptly announced on Friday, April 1.

Well, actually it’s a test program for the next 90 days, to be rolled out nationwide thereafter ’cause presumably somebody agreed to pay for it (or perhaps the funding details are still being worked out).

If you’re familiar with CrewPASS (which never actually made it out of the testing phase ’cause nobody would agree to pay for it), this is the same thing, but different.

The idea is to confirm that flight crew members are who they claim to be, then require no further screening before admitting them onto the flight deck. Sounds good to me – we all had to go through extensive background checks and stuff when we were hired, and it really doesn’t make much difference what we carry on board the aircraft anyway. Surely those points have been covered well enough in the past six months.

But how do they propose to verify my identity? The information available as I write is curiously vague. The union says:

TSA requires on site testing of this system because it utilizes different technical resources

Hmm… Alright.

The Biometrics page at tsa.gov says:

Retinal scans. Fingerprint identification. A few years ago these things seemed like something out of a science fiction movie. Today, they continue to grow as important parts of our risk-based approach to security.biometric qualification Who will watch the watchmen?

Biometric identification allows us to verify a person is who they say they are by using their own unique set of identifiers – whether fingerprints, iris scans or a combination of the two. We continue to test this technology at airports and harbors across the country, allowing us to control access to important facilities.

Us, huh?

Mind you, they aren’t specifically referring here to pilots on airliner flight decks, but to ‘person(s)… at airports and harbors across the country’. I guess we should all sleep better knowing there’s someone in control. Oh, and it’s not just anyone; it’s them.

The Known Crewmember Program press release doesn’t mention biometrics explicitly. But could the excerpt above have been any more bold in declaring their general aspirations to wield total(itarian) control over your access and mine to these common modes of transportation?

And, um, I’m just wondering: who will control their access to our access to these common modes of transportation?

More to follow…

EPIC Cooties vs. TSA Maggots

EPIC’s Marc Rotenberg is, indeed, an OK guy – a gentleman seemingly undefiled by his inner-beltway environs. I probably don’t agree with him on every philosophical point, but I basically trust him. And, along with all lovers of freedom in our day, I am indebted to him for the work he has done to oppose the tyrannical crimes of DHS/TSA since well before I entered the fray in any noticeable way myself.

I have nearly identical sentiments toward Becky Akers. For years her work has helped me clarify my thinking about the deplorable Homeland Security parasites quietly gorging themselves from within the curdling carcass of our coveted free society.

Understand, darkness flees from the light. That’s just how it works. So it’s no surprise that a knave like TSA’s John Pistole would “have strong concerns” about sending his minions to contend with the “non-governmental” likes of Mr. Rotenberg. Becky, in her article originally published at LewRockwell.com, explains:


He seems like an OK guy.

Sure, he’s a lawyer – in fact, he “chairs the ABA Committee on Privacy and Information Protection” (pssst, shysters: failing miserably here). Worse, he consorts with politicians and bureaucrats. But otherwise, Mark Rotenberg is innocuous: “…Executive Director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) in Washington, DC.[, h]e teaches information privacy law at Georgetown University Law Center.” He’s also “testified before Congress on many issues,” as he did earlier this month to the Subcommittee on National Security, Homeland Defense and Foreign Operations.

Formerly known as the National Security and Foreign Affairs Subcommittee, Rep. Darrell Issa [R-CA] updated the group for our brave new Amerika last December when he descended to chairmanship of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee (yeah, riiiiiight). But even with the requisite “Homeland” in its title, the subcommittee seems deaf. Who among us hasn’t heard the shrieks and cries of the violated echoing from airports nationwide as the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) sexually assaults passengers? And yet the subcommittee held hearings March 16 on this grotesque evil, as if either the Constitution or simple decency allow a response other than immediate abolition of the TSA, with swift and severe punishment for its criminals.

You probably suspect by now that Congress has absolutely no intention of pulling the plug on this agency or even of reining it in. Indeed, it cannot: its power is as weak as its will. After years of incubation at the intelligence agencies, the totalitarian, homeland-security government-within-the-government has metastasized for a decade; it’s now as unbeatable as the most virulent cancer; the rest of Leviathan either joins it or is devoured by it. And the TSA knows this. It has openly defied Congress with the same impunity with which it flouts the law.

So why bother with a hearing? Photo ops and whitewash, among other benefits. Congress wants us to think it’s still in charge, that it has the TSA under control rather than vice versa. And it doesn’t hurt for voters to see their representatives whaling away at the national laughingstock everyone hates. Plus, these cowards now have an excuse when constituents complain about gate-rape: “Yes, we feel your pain, so acutely we’ve held hearings.” How many Americans still own enough savvy and gumption to ask, “So what?”

Ergo, this month’s charade. Various experts pontificated as did one of the TSA’s victims: Sharon Cissna, the state representative from Alaska who famously travelled via small plane, ferry, and car rather than submit to the TSA’s molestation. Her story is horrific, something out of Nazi Germany or the gulags of Soviet Russia – and it’s tragically typical, too: “Heading into security [at Seattle’s airport,]… I suddenly found myself directed … [to the] full-body imaging scan. … A female agent placed herself blocking my passage.  Scan results would again display … my breast cancer and the resulting scars [the TSA had irradiated and then sexually assaulted her 3 months before]….  I would require [sic for ‘the TSA would exploit my illness with the’] invasive, probing hands of a stranger over my body. Memories of violation would consume my thoughts again … I began to remember what my husband and I’d decided after the previous intensive physical search.  That I never had to submit to that horror again! … this twisted policy did not have to be the price of flying to Juneau! … as more and more TSA, airline, airport and police gathered, … I repeatedly said that I would not allow the feeling-up and I would not use the transportation mode that required it. … The freedom to travel should never come at the price of basic human dignity and pride.”

“Sharon Cissna TSA” turns up some 40,000 hits on Google; AOL News featured the story as did MSNBC, NPR, the Los Angeles Times, and the Miami Herald, among many others. So while sewers are a congresscritter’s natural habitat, it’s likely even they reverberated with news of the TSA’s assault on this citizen. Why listen to it all over again? Yet Our Rulers did – without rushing to horsewhip the TSA’s degenerates. Only in government do wusses call themselves men though thugs assail women and children on their watch.

Riding to the rescue were Mr. Rotenberg and EPIC, which has filed no less than five lawsuits against the TSA. At the hearing, “EPIC urged Congress to suspend the use of airport body scanners for primary screening. EPIC said the devices were not effective and were not minimally intrusive, as courts have required for airport searches” – even if the Constitution demands a warrant. “EPIC cited TSA documents obtained in EPIC’s FOIA lawsuit which showed that the machines are designed to store and transfer images, and not designed to detect powdered explosives.”

No hearing is complete without a defendant. But at the “last minute” the “TSA declined to testify – despite previously confirming through both verbal and written confirmation that they would appear,” Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), the subcommittee’s chairman, complained.

Who knew such appearance was optional? Yo, Jason: subpoena. Then again, Mr. Chair is no doubt uncomfortably aware that the TSA would have snubbed that, too, and in front of the whole country. He eventually capitulated to the agency’s orders for a session by itself.

But more astounding than this further evidence of the TSA’s contempt for Congress was its excuse: because of EPIC’s “multiple lawsuits” against the agency, its administrator, John “The Pervert” Pistole sniffed, “I have strong concerns over the Subcommittee’s intention to seat [the TSA’s assistant administrators] Mr. [Robin] Kane and Mr. [Lee] Kair alongside a non-governmental witness [Mr. Rotenberg]…” What, do non-governmental witnesses who dare to sue The Pervert’s fiefdom have cooties?

So far as I can tell, Mr. Rotenberg boasts a clean record aside from his lawyering and hobnobbing with Congress. He’s never sexually assaulted anyone. He doesn’t electronically strip unwilling victims to leer at their nakedness. Nor does he rob passengers, brutalize old ladies and survivors of cancer, or torment handicapped children.

No gentleman voluntarily rubs elbows with the TSA’s savages. If anyone objected to the seating, it shoulda been Mr. Rotenberg.

Planes, trains, and lamebrains

Grope a dope 13 Planes, trains, and lamebrains

As an industry professional with a very large stake in the matter, I’ve said for some time that TSA’s true mission clearly has very little to do with its stated mission of ensuring transportation security. This is evidenced by the outrageous stupidity of their policies and procedures and obvious disinterest in employing best practices that are scientifically and historically proven to work.

Whatever is driving the decision-making process, no one can reasonably claim that it has anything to do with legitimate, professional security. It would be a mistake to say that TSA has an authentic function that is simply being mismanaged by the agency’s leadership. It’s just not that easy to be that incompetent. Besides, where can one find a state-run, bureaucratic agency that actually does what it was ostensibly created to do?

I’ve also previously mentioned the recorded ‘public service’ announcement that plays every 15-20 minutes in my pilot base, Houston Intercontinental Airport (IAH), which says, in part:

Any remarks or jokes concerning security may result in your arrest.

This announcement ensures traveler security how? Can we reasonably understand this as anything other than a desensitizing warning to ordinary citizens against challenging, questioning, or objecting to the state’s criminal actions in the security lines? And this isn’t the first time they have publicly gone on record threatening law-abiding travelers with ARREST should they speak ill of these bizarre and abusive police state tactics.

Many of us have also said that this madness will not stay in the airports if we fail to defend our Fourth Amendment rights and freedom. (Our lawsuit is crawling along, by the way – nothing interesting to report – but the only resistance that really matters is our collective refusal to subject ourselves to this abuse out in the streets, airports, train stations, etc.) Indeed, it is quickly spilling out of the airports already and we are complying in abject servitude as a people who clearly do not value or deserve the blessings and freedom that have been passed down to us at great cost to our forebears.

Curiously, however, we are for whatever reason quite diligent when it comes to documenting the wholesale erosion of our rights and liberty, as if recording it all makes it less real or at least more tolerable in some way. Here’s a recent example from YouTube, with commentary, filmed at a train station in Savannah:

The only bad thing on our trip was TSA was at the Savannah train station. There were about 14 agents pulling people inside the building and coralling everyone in a roped area AFTER you got OFF THE TRAIN! This made no sense!!! Poor family in front of us! 9 year old getting patted down and wanded. They groped our people too and were very unprofessional. I am all about security, but when have you ever been harassed and felt up getting OFF a plane? Shouldnt they be doing that getting ON??? And they wonder why so many people are mad at them.

No, I don’t think they wonder why so many people are mad at them at all. Nor do they seem to care. Why should they when they have so many willing participants, angry or not? Keep those cameras rolling though. It’s good entertainment. But maybe eventually we’ll recognize that it doesn’t make any difference. Want to make a difference? Go out and disrupt the status quo. Direct action gets satisfaction.

Airport cafe: TSA traitors not welcome here

We the people have all the leverage and power needed to take our way of life back from the tyrants in Washington and their minions. It is they who are dependent upon our consent – not the other way around. -ed.

KC McLawson works for a cafe near Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, and since the body-scan and patdown controversy last November, her boss has taken extraordinary measures to ensure the TSA knows of his displeasure.

“We have posted signs on our doors basically saying that they aren’t allowed to come into our business,” she says. “We have the right to refuse service to anyone.”

McLawson explains.

My boss flies quite a bit and he has an amazing ability to remember faces. If he sees a TSA agent come in we turn our backs and completely ignore them, and tell them to leave.

Their kind aren’t welcomed in our establishment.

A large majority of our customers — over 90 percent — agree with our stance and stand by our decision.

We even have the police on our side and they have helped us escort TSA agents out of our cafe. Until TSA agents start treating us with the respect and dignity that we deserve, then things will change for them in the private sector.

…why do passengers hate the TSA? Perhaps a better question is, “Why not?”

I asked McLawson if I could talk with her boss, but he declined. She says she hopes telling her story will raise awareness of the anger felt by small businesses across America toward the TSA.

“Maybe more businesses will step up to the plate and do the same,” she says.

Let bright blue shirts and shiny silver badges be the scarlet letters of our time. Read the full article here.

Big business and the state gettin’ it on as usual…

…this time it’s TSA and the NFL:

Homeland Security Secretary Inspects Super Bowl Site, Says Fans Have ‘Shared Responsibility’ for Security at Game and Across the Country

Friday, February 04, 2011
By Penny Starr

“The idea is simple,” Napolitano said…

No, Janet – YOU are simple. And dangerous, because somebody put you in charge.

…Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, told CNN that millions of dollars were spent to make the stadium secure, including perches for snipers and surveillance cameras to cover every corner of the venue.

Snipers?

Fans both inside the stadium and those watching it outside on big-screen telecasts will be subject to security screenings similar to those at airports.

The NFL, which will pick up half the tab, estimates it cost $10 million to secure the game, according to CNN’s report.

DHS announced in a press release posted on its Web site on Monday that the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign will be rolled out nationally over the coming months “to help America’s businesses, communities and citizens remain vigilant and play an active role in keeping the country safe.”

Napolitano will watch the game at the White House, according to Matt Chandler, the DHS Deputy Press Secretary. Other guests invited to watch the game with President Barack Obama and his family include Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony.

Normally, conventional wisdom says good journalism places the most important details first in a story. See the complete original article here and judge for yourself. Freakin’ corporate media lap-dogs…

Seriously, people – don’t you get it? They’re not going to stop until they are made to stop. If you let the goons fondle your ‘nads so you can watch a bunch of grown men play a ballgame for more money than you’ll make in your lifetime, you’re stupid. And you’re a traitor. And you should apologize to your children for the slavery they will have to endure because of your weakness of mind and will. WTF?

Your help needed in ORD, ATL, IAH, LAX, SFO, PHX, CLE, DTW, MSP

The folks at WeWontFly.com are raising funds to put the following message on billboards in the vicinity of airports across the country:

WeWontFlyBillboard 1 1024x298 Your help needed in ORD, ATL, IAH, LAX, SFO, PHX, CLE, DTW, MSPThey need help locating and making the arrangements in major hub cities and airline headquarters. Jim Babb told me they’ve got someone in Dallas-Ft. Worth, but I’m trying to help him find people to cover ORD, ATL, IAH, LAX, SFO, PHX, CLE, DTW, and MSP airports.

It shouldn’t take more than a few phone calls and emails along with a familiarity with the local area. If you want to help out with the cost I’m sure they’ll appreciate that as well. Send related inquiries to the WeWontFly Contact page, or you can always contact us through ours.

The goal is to spread the word among the traveling public and get in front of the airline execs and shareholders to remind them that the tyrants and traitors at DHS/TSA are costing them money. As I’ve said many times now, this battle will be won or lost in the hearts and minds of the traveling public (expressed, as always, in dollars and cents) – and nowhere else. Of course, we already know if you’re reading FedUpFlyers, you’re not flying. Right?
