Big Brother at Work

So, it seems that we will all have a decision to make when we fly in the future.  Either we can submit to a naked body scan or we can opt out of those and allow TSA agents to fondle and grope our private parts - all in the name of national security, of course.  Sing it with me:

"My country, 'tis of thee, 
Sweet land of liberty, 
Of thee I sing . . ." 

On October 28, TSA released the following statement:
"TSA is in the process of implementing new pat-down procedures at checkpoints nationwide as one of our many layers of security to keep the traveling public safe. Pat-downs are one important tool to help TSA detect hidden and dangerous items such as explosives. Passengers should continue to expect an unpredictable mix of security layers that include explosives trace detection, advanced imaging technology, canine teams, among others."
I guess the "among others" in that statement includes fondling and groping the private parts of women and children, as the video below reveals (or you can go here and read an article on the subject - they pat-down men's private parts, too).

". . . Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From every mountainside
Let freedom ring!"
