Over at Coordinated Illumination, there is a video of the New Jersey legislature performing legislative theater--begging the federal government to call off their dogs at the TSA. Since at this point the use of the TSA is optional (per the original federal legislation), why don't the States start passing some laws requiring airports within their borders to punt the TSA and institute private screeners?? It's a great double whammy--asserting States rights as well as getting rid of a government agency that has overstepped its bounds by trampling the Constitution. It would be a nice 'in your face' to Napolitano as well as the socialists who are trying to grab power on several fronts.
In addition, I did write to my Representative asking him to support HR 6416, the American Travelers Dignity Act, which essentially removes the immunity of the TSA from prosecution for taking naked pictures and/or physically assaulting members of the flying public.
