Mark Udall, Michael Bennet, Mike Coffman, Diana DeGette must stop airport molestations by TSA
Are members of the Colorado Congressional delegation, their families and their staffs exempted from molestations by TSA security agents in Denver and Washington, DC? Senators Mark Udall and Michael Bennet have the most power to stop intrusive government agents from groping and molesting travelers, but being Big Government politicians who don't want to be blamed if terrorists down a plane, they probably will get themselves exempted from the searches. The TSA is said to be using molestation to force fliers to go through dangerous body scanners, which expose people to radiation that accumulates over time.
And they'll let all other Coloradans suffer the indignities of air travel. Sooner than later, however, air travel will shrink dramatically as tourists and skiers go on buyers strikes. They'll refuse to fly, and they'll stop coming to Colorado on vacation.
The Colorado and U.S. economies will suffer as the politicians cover their tails and millions of Americans lose more jobs.
This is not an Obama problem. This nonsense started under President George W. Bush and his GOP Congress, and it continues under the Obama Democrats.
It's time for Udall, Bennet and U.S. Reps. Diana DeGette, Mike Coffman, Ed Perlmutter and other members of our delegation to force the TSA to use racial, ethnic and other kinds of profiling rather than universal profiling.
And it's time come up with other ways to protect Americans in the air. It's time to restore our liberties and freedoms. And it's time to crush the terrorists where they live.
Click on this link to read the account of a woud be flier who defied the TSA and has been told that he could be subject to a $10,000 fine for refusing to be x-rayed or patted down.

So if the government spends $1 million to prosecute the flier and suffers $1 billion or more worth of bad publicity, Americans who will help the flier pay for a defense will be the winners. And the politicians will show what kind of people they really are.
