Government Announces Deficit Reduction Measure

$11,000 fine, arrest possible for some who refuse airport scans and pat downs

If you don’t want to pass through an airport scanner that allows security agents to see an image of your naked body or to undergo the alternative, a thorough manual search, you may have to find another way to travel this holiday season.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is warning that any would-be commercial airline passenger who enters an airport checkpoint and then refuses to undergo the method of inspection designated by TSA will not be allowed to fly and also will not be permitted to simply leave the airport.

That person will have to remain on the premises to be questioned by the TSA and possibly by local law enforcement. Anyone refusing faces fines up to $11,000 and possible arrest.

There is no opting out, citizen. Get your junk touched or pay the price.

  1. I decided today to simply never travel anywhere by air with my family. If someone tries to fondle my daughters, I will have no choice but to slug him/her. So I’m going to avoid putting myself in that felonious situation.

    Fortunately, air travel isn’t really an issue for us.

  2. With my move to Springfield from St. Louis, I’ve moved myself out of one day driving range (that is, a long weekend trip) of my beloved Milwaukee. However, I’d hoped the recent arrivals of nonstop flights to the Branson airport would mean I could go home again easily.

    Well, no. In addition to traveling through the air as man was not intended to do, I would have to deal with air travel as Americans were not intended to do.

    My wife last Christmas gave me a weekend pass to Milwaukee, to see my grandmother and to see my beloved Milwaukee Admirals play again. But I might not make it.

    Ha! Serves me right, I voted for Bush twice, hey?
