    Yeah, because U.S. Senators are prime suspects for a terrorist plot...

    Yes... we understand it's bullshit. Yes, we should be racially profiling.

    Now go get it past the pc faggots. Good luck with that.

    It's bullshit alright and racial profiling is a no-brainer. But as it stands right now...members of Congress/politicians, other people of considerable power, famous people...deserve no special treatment just because we know...or should know...who they are. Suffer with the rest of us nobodies and take your full body search like a man.

    And he was looking right at your big blockhead when he said it, Ventura.

    Don't like it? Get the rules changed.
    Until then he should be treated like
    the rest of us.

    If he was on his way to do Senator things, at the Senate, then the TSA could have some problems.

    “The Senators and Representatives…shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same….” according to Article I, Section 6.

    That buzzer kept going off every time his knee went through the scanner...That was a clear Breach of Peace...The agents couldn't enjoy their low fat lunches with all that racket!

    I know nothing of his state of freedom.

    However, it is not very wise to fuck with one of the 100 tools that could ruin your Federal career, IMO.

    Here, let me inform you... he wasn't arrested. So the little Article and Section blurb you quoted above is inapplicable.

    I double dog dare him to try and retaliate. He'll just make himself look like a bigger entitled crybaby.

    I guess he should have used a private jet like his democrat colleagues do.

    On the other hand, this TSA agent ultimately has a job to do. So, there was an issue with Paul's knee and the scanner...what does the TSA agent do, assuming he knows the individual is a Senator?

    -Does he order a full body search and have this pompous fuck throw a hissy fit because he says he's a Senator and shouldn't be subject to this nonsense?

    -Or does he ignore the "anomaly" and risk having this pompous fuck go public about how the TSA let him through even when the scanner was indicating something was wrong?

    It's best to just do your job...especially when you're dealing with an anti-big gov't type that has the platform to make some noise at your expense.

    Fuck the TSA and anyone who stands with them.

    We'd all be safer with everyone packing a CCW in their carry on bags.

    No doubt about it. I'm right there with ya on that. But as it stands today, that's not the rules each and every one of us have to abide by. And these TSA dummies have to be assholes, even to people in power. Rand Paul should know that, unless the TSA was unjustly targeting him. Then I can see why it'd be problem, but I don't think that's the case.

    Let us line up the JBT's and their minions. Throw a rope over their necks and string them up like Xmas lights along the boulevards.

    That's right, only the ultra rich that can afford private jets are allowed to have their 4th amendment rights. Or congress people like Pelosi that use the air force and tax payer dollars.

    *sigh* Again, and I'll try to type slow so you understand. As deplorable as TSA searches may be, they, in no way, violate your 4th amendment rights. This is PRIVATE PROPERTY. You do NOT have the RIGHT to fly on a commercial airliner and more than you have the RIGHT to use a taxi. You do have the RIGHT to fly, as long as you have a license. So, just like if you don't want to follow a cab's rules you can get a license, buy a car and drive that instead, if you don't want to follow the TSA's rules you can get a license, buy a plane and fly that instead.

    Inconvenient? Yes. Unconstitutional? No.

    I didn't know being an uninformed rube was a prerequisite for Senatorial election in Kentucky.
