Our state goons don’t wear fur hats
Your November 1 cover picturing a Russian protester being man-handled by the police in front of the mayor’s office in Moscow reminded me immediately of the TSA man/woman handling of passengers at our airports.
Although the comparison is probably unfair, I would have never believed that our government officials would be so controlling similar to the former Soviet Union (and present Russia) as they “invade” and destroy any vestiges of modesty that our culture hasn’t already obliterated. The TSA’s actions are tantamount to sexual assault in the “patdowns” and pornography as the body scanners “take” and send “nude pictures” in order to “search” for explosives and other terrorists’ contraband that might “bring a plane down.”
Again I ask, who would have thought that our government would be trampling on private rights that are guaranteed by our Constitution?
A final question, can you for a moment believe that if a Republican — say George W. Bush — was president the Democrats, the Leftist press, and the ACLU would be sitting on their hands and saying nothing about the TSA’s actions? You’ll recall that these entities had a “cow” when Mr. Bush was using the Patriot Act to keep us safe from terrorists. H.E. Todd Nashville, Tennessee
