Taken by surprise, I found myself hustled through the Porn Scan at San Jose, then (because I'd kept my metal-free wallet) given the Gate Rape Lite on my right side..,things are hanging a little further to the left, damn the TSA.
I was tired, have a cold, and was a tad impatient...so didn't think to give the writhing, moaning, orgasmic performance appropriate to the situation.
In theory, we still live in a free country where the inquiry "Papers, please" before we are allowed to travel should be a foreign concept. Where either a warrant or probable cause must be shown prior to a search....oddly lacking in the TSA rituals running so counter to our nations founding document.
The LEAST we can do is to try and make it as unpleasant as possible within the law for the petty tyrants, criminals, goons, and desperately rationalizing appeasers inflicting these infringements upon a once free nation.
I shall try to do better next time - and hope you do as well. Tiny acts of courage can have great effects.....
