Government Has Become Too Intrusive

This is the story of John Tyner (interviewed by Fox News in the video below) who told a TSA agent he would have the agent arrested if the agent touched a certain area of Mr. Tyner's body during a pat down before boarding a plane. The agent took offense, brought in a supervisor and Mr. Tyner decided to get a refund and go home. The TSA refused to allow Mr. Tyner to leave the airport without a full security check (?) and threatened a lawsuit. Mr. Tyner told the agent to bring on the suit. TSA has threatened Mr. Tyner with a $10,000 fine.

Do you recognize tyranny when you see it? This is what happens to a nation that allows the federal government to do whatever it wants, whenever it wants and to whomever it wants, in the name of security. Refuse to fly, America! Drive to grandma's house. Leave the airports empty and desolate until these screenings and pat downs cease.

The mid-term election was the beginning and, once again, Americans fired a "shot heard 'round the world." The war continues and we must stand up against this intrusive, tyrannical government now or it will soon be too late for us all!


UPDATE: TSA  has announced an investigation of John Tyner. He was told the following: “By buying your ticket you gave up a lot of rights.”
