You doubt this TSA and related crap is about control?

and that they want to punish anyone who causes a problem?
The terminology contained within the reported memo is indeed troubling. It labels any person who “interferes” with TSA airport security screening procedure protocol and operations by actively objecting to the established screening process, “including but not limited to the anticipated national opt-out day” as a “domestic extremist.” The label is then broadened to include “any person, group or alternative media source” that actively objects to, causes others to object to, supports and/or elicits support for anyone who engages in such travel disruptions at U.S. airports in response to the enhanced security procedures.

For individuals who engaged in such activity at screening points, it instructs TSA operations to obtain the identities of those individuals and other applicable information and submit the same electronically to the Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division, the Extremism and Radicalization branch of the Office of Intelligence & Analysis (IA) division of the Department of Homeland Security.

Got all that? But wait! There's MORE!!!
For “any person, group or domestic alternative media source” that actively objects to, causes others to object to, supports and/or elicits support for anyone who engages in such travel “disruptions” at U.S. airports (as defined above) in response to the enhanced security procedures, the [applicable DHS administrative branch] is instructed to identify and collect information about the persons or entities, and submit such information in the manner outlined [within this directive].
So. Big Sis Napolitano considers me, and Breda, and the Amputee Mom and EVERYONE ELSE who objects to or gives support to anyone who objects to the Touching Special Areas clowns 'domestic extremists'. And wants us on a list.

Any doubts remaining about what these people are?

Screw them

national boycott of flying - like the bus boycotts of the 60s.

The money saved can be spent on more useful things for use around the home...

Just found out who the original Mr Boycott was the other day. A landlord in the west of Ireland who tried to evict his existing tennants and re let the land - and all refused to take it.

The Irish land wars could give some good ideas if things get as interesting as I fear they might. Red China's pet mongrel isn't misbehaving for no reason, and your commi in chief isn't going to do anything about it. These are getting to be interesting times.

The young Winston Churchill, during his officer training in the mid 1890s was afraid he'd never see a proper war as the nations of the world were all too civilised to ever have one. Now we've come full circle.

When I was in my teens I visited Soviet Union a couple of times with my parents. There were checkpoints everywhere, the men went through everything, including my stuff to the point of checking through the couple of paperpacks I had taken for reading.

I would never have believed something like that could happen in your country. Hasn't there been some talk about starting to check passengers in your trains and buses too?

Yes, Marja, there has; that leaked out the other day.
