Supreme Court Skips Out: TSA Body Scanners Are A-OK

Written by Gary North on October 2, 2012

Discretion is the better part of valor. The Supremes have decided that TSA body scanners are not a constitutionally relevant issue.

We can always take the train.

The Invasion of the Body Scanners will not be reversed from the nation’s last protection against invasions of privacy.

We can always drive.

The new technology was installed in October 2010, two years ago. It is clearly an invasion of privacy. Well, it is at least blurred invasion of privacy. Americans don’t seem to care.

They can always take the bus.

Whatever the TSA implements is accepted. It is a kind of laboratory of privacy invasion. The government ramps up the invasive technology to see when the public resists. It never resists.

This is like one of those experiments in which the psychologist gives the lab rat a shock. Sometimes the victim is human. When will they resist? So far, the experiment has not detected any limit.

We can always hitchhike.

You can opt out of the scanning. You may choose groping. But if you do, this displays a bad attitude. The TSA does not like this.

  3. Oh, and I guess when the American Gulags are put in place, it's for our own protection, after all those mad Nationalist (still believing in the Constitution and the rule of American law) might actually break out into God Bless America or sing the Star Spangled Banner. This is what happens when you put moderates and liberals on the court. The moderates are just people to shy to say they are liberals. They just want to get along with the ones most likely to put pressure on them, and don't want to be seen as rocking the boat. This is the problem with American jurisprudence, wishy washy moderates who won't fight liberals and just go with the flow.

  4. Well, let's see…….Nope, still can't take a train or drive to Hawaii so I guess the statement, "you can take a train or drive" is incorrect.

  5. Texas Chris says:

    What we need is a couple of state governors who are willing to task their state police forces with arresting and jailing any federal agent that attempts to enforce regulations that the state legislature, state executive, or state supreme court decides is unconstitutional.

    I'd start with the 16th Amendment / Income Tax / IRS, then national senate races, then EPA.

    Once the states have re-established their dominance over the federal government, then begin to dismantle the apparatus at the state level. Then county. Then city.

  6. Texas Chris says:

    Greta,
    The SCOTUS's authority as the sole decider of constitutionality is unconstitutional. It's not their job. Nowhere in the founding document did the states give that power to the Supreme Court; it resides with each state.

    We are fools to believe that the SCOTUS will ever limit the power of the federal government, it being a branch of the same beast. It's not a liberal / conservative issue. It's not a left / right issue. It that the court long ago assumed a power the founding fathers never intended it to have.

  7. Texas Chris says:

    You can take a boat… But you'll have to go thru Customs, usually…

  8. Can you tell that the SCOTUS justices are merely appointed-for-life, spineless libtards who are on the gummint payroll? These fossils need term limits as badly as any politweasel in the feral gummint.
