what country is this?

June 24, 2008

TSA inspectors had a woman remove nipple piercings with pliars. They’ve now ruled that you must show these piercings for visual inspection. Obviously, there are other places a person can pierce that one might not want to submit for inspection…

Don’t have any piercings? That’s okay your genitals are still up for inspection… New airport scanners now can see through your clothes… but don’t worry they don’t keep copies so they say… we’ll wait for the internet site won’t we… I’m sure you’ve seen the ACLU retort, “Passengers “should not be required to display highly personal details of their bodies [such as] the size of their breasts or genitals as a pre-requisite to boarding a plane.”

And if that’s not enough, you also now get to pay 30 dollars round trip to check your FIRST bag. So let’s recap…

We throw you in a plane that hasn’t been safety inspected in decades, charging you 30 dollars to take bags (sorting through your undies with our disease ridden hands, no worries we wear “gloves”) but before you get on we need to see you naked in one fashion or another and if you have body piercings we want to watch you remove them (yummy)… I suppose my only question now is… do you get vasoline with this experience?

I’m just disgusted by all of this. But I’m also tired so this post probably makes no sense ha ha ha…
