Air passenger who refused TSA molestation will be persecuted; where are Colo. Senators, Congressmen?
John Tyner, the passenger who refused to let TSA agents sexually molest him, will be investigated and may be fined $11,000 for refusing to complete the pat down process at the San Diego Airport. Where are Colorado's Senators Mark Udall and Michael Bennet on this case? Where are Congressmen Doug Lamborn, Mike Coffman, Diana DeGette, Jared Polis and Ed Perlmutter? So far, none of them have posted any comments about the TSA's abuse of passengers on their web pages.
Will they move to stop the TSA's invasion of fliers' privacy and the destruction of Colorado's tourism industry? Unless the TSA is put in its place, air travel will shrink dramatically, and that will hurt Colorado tourism.
Meanwhile, Americans are being urged to not fly on "Opt out" day, Nov. 24. A message needs to be sent to Congress, which is responsible for this mess, and the best way to send that message is to not only call and write your congressman, but refuse to fly until the laws are changed.

Rather than countenance a federal invasion of privacy of American air travelers, why not issue the following ultimatum to terror tolerating nations?
- If you fund terror we will put a tariff on your oil or other products – call it, the “Terror Tariff” – and we’ll invest the money raised in Predator drones and missiles, special forces, and alternative energy research.
- If you allow terrorists to train on your soil and we will kill them and maybe your leadership too.
- And, if we topple your terrorist-loving government, we won’t spend a dime to occupy your nation and rebuild it – you get to do that.
- If you leave us alone, we’ll return the favor. But, if you, or your terrorist proxies attack us, you may not live to see the morning.
Bottom line: we Americans get to keep our liberty and the bad guys get to lose their lives, which, when you think about it, is doubly satisfying in an especially American kind of way.
