There Goes the 4th Amendment! The Unconstitutionality of the TSA

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.
-The 4th Amendment

Our founding fathers were a wise bunch. They could recognize a tyrannical government an Atlantic Ocean away. They rebelled and set out rules set in stone to give future generations a set of rules to live by. Slowly but surely, we have forgotten their wisdom and now we are paying for it.

By now you've probably heard of those TSA goons poking and prodding grandmothers and children. These are a bunch of useless bastards who couldn't get a job doing anything else. We don't need their useless security. What has made us more secure while flying is not forcing everyone to give up their liquids and nail clippers but by putting a gun in the cockpit of every airplane.

Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
-Benjamin Franklin

The excuse that by buying an airplane ticket you're waiving your Constitutional rights is BULL. Airports are government and therefore public property. The same rules that apply off the airport apply in the airport.

Technology has allowed TSA goons to strip you without probable cause. Their machines are exposing you to carcinogenic x-rays and stripping your dignity in the process. Are you going to
stand there and take it? I have decided to stop flying because I simply don't need to. Some of you still need to fly so here's a way to stick it to them:
Metallic-ink shirts that will prominently display the 4th Amendment on the TSA goons' screens when they strip search you.
