My Take: This fits in nicely with my article from yesterday about how 9/11 continues to be used to dismantle the Constitution and further our progression into a police state. For those of you who haven’t read the Constitution in a while this is what the 4th Amendment states:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Is this really the kind of country you want to live in where government bureaucrats treat you like a criminal everywhere you go? Are you really that afraid of terrorists? Remember what the very wise Ben Franklin made clear centuries ago that “those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
How about we stop being a nation of frightened children and stand up proud and strong for freedom and liberty. That’s why all of our ancestors came here in the first place . Let’s not throw away all they sacrificed for us.
Houstonians Revolt Over TSA On Buses
“It was used as a pretext to harass people”

Friday, April 27, 2012
Dozens of outraged residents attended a Houston METRO board meeting yesterday to express their disgust at how TSA workers were used to interrogate passengers on buses during a so-called “anti-terror” exercise last week.
Complaining of how their fourth amendment rights were violated, residents were joined by several prominent lawyers in an extraordinary backlash against the federal agency and local authorities.
The meeting was dominated by more denials on behalf of METRO that warrantless bag searches had occurred during the drill, labeled BusSafe, which was billed as a counter-terror exercise yet only managed to snag alleged prostitutes and drug users.
