Although this video is a little breathless and melodramatic for my particular tastes, thank goodness that we have people like this gentleman who are out there making these recordings and sharing them online.
This is clear evidence that earlier this month the TSA set up shop in Chicago’s Union Station (a train station). What happened next, we don’t seem to know. I couldn’t find any other reports on this, either from mainstream or independent media.
“If you don’t like it, then don’t fly,” they say. Well, add riding a train to the list. Pretty soon, the masquerading TSA agents will have nothing left to say but, “if you don’t like it, too bad!” They’re reducing our choices little by little.
And that’s what this is all about: choice. Choice is what the TSA is reducing and choice is what we are fighting for. We want a freed marketplace in traveler security solutions where airlines, airports, travelers and security industry providers can work together to devise a diverse world of solutions that the end consumer can choose from. Eventually, if the government and the corporations don’t get in the way, the marketplace may be able to accommodate all reasonable needs for privacy and dignity.
