TSA Kills Thousands Every Year

Statistically, Americans are 4 times more likely to die from a lightning bolt strike than from a terrorist attack. The chances of dying in a car wreck are 1 in 19,000 while the chances of dying in a terrorist attack are 1 in 22 million. Yet, trillions of dollars have been spent fighting an unwinnable war on terror that has nothing to do with making us safe, but everything to do with money and power, as is most everything else in politics.

We’ve given the TSA over $60 billion, and how many terrorists have they caught? Zero. Of course, security theater proponents use this to their advantage and say that the TSA have prevented terrorist attacks from happening. The TSA have saved lives, they claim. This is obviously wishful thinking and unverifiable at best. In fact, the only times terrorists were actually thwarted at an airport were when a traveler reported the person to law enforcement. The “counter-terrorism” measures haven’t worked to prevent real terrorists from doing what they want to do. The scanners do nothing except slow things down and make money for the scanner companies. The groping does nothing except humiliate people.

For these reasons, people don’t want to fly as much anymore. They don’t like being treated like cattle and being terrorized at the airport. They’d rather drive instead. And this drives up another statistic - car accident fatalities. Eric Peters is a regular contributor to Lew Rockwell’s site. He states:

"According to data compiled by Cornell University researchers, the ugsomeness of dealing with the TSA has pushed a goodly number of former air travelers into their cars – and back onto the roads. This, in turn has led to a measurable increase in monthly traffic fatalities – about 242 per month that would otherwise not have occurred. Some quick addition is in order. Let’s be easy on our calculators – and generous to the Blue Goons – and assume the figure is off by more than half. Let’s say it’s only 100 additional deaths per month attributable to TSA Avoidance Syndrome. That’s 1,200 deaths annually. Times four equals 4,800. In less than four years, then, TSA has managed to get more Americans killed than Osama bin Laden."

 Even if it could be proven that the TSA have been preventing terrorist attacks all this time, their invasive security theater have driven people away and caused these travelers to travel in a more risky way, thereby making their deaths more likely. So what if the TSA have prevented (hypothetically) a couple terrorist attacks. They’re still contributing to all the car accidents deaths. Just because these people aren’t dying from terrorist attacks doesn’t mean their deaths should be less scary than terrorist attacks. They’re still dead. Does it really matter how they died?

Americans’ fear of terrorism is completely irrational. The real threat is so low that law enforcement have to fabricate scenarios in order to justify their existence. This fear has been fueled by politicians and media alike who only seek power and control over us. What better way is there to control us than by scaring us into submission with the threat of terrorism that they often have to create themselves?

    Early in 2013, be prepared for TSA intrusion into rail, bus and mass water transporters. Also, be prepared for UN control of our constitutional freedoms with the First and Second Amendments on the forefront enforced by the forming socialist party brown-pants, which are now our family members and neighbors

      Jag, I agree that the changes will be as sudden and total as you predict. As sudden and total as was Hitler's assumption of total control in 1933, accomplished upon a far more intelligent, cultured, and law-abiding culture than present-day America. The sole ray of hope I see in all that, is that the quality of Americans to be righteous, even if "righteous" means disobeying laws, may still live in the descendants of "those who overthrew the King and the Empire", in the Revolutionary war. Let us pray.

      jag, and others on ths site, link onto "Agenda 21" on google. I believe the first and second amendments will be completely destroyed if the UN, with the US backing, passes Agenda 21. Say goodbye to personal propert say hello to a One World Government, with the Messiah himself, Obama, sitting on the throne.

    The TSA cant find any TERRORISTA AT THE AIR PORTS they now have taken to train stations bus terminals and FEDERAL HIGHWAYS. They are nothing but a BIG PAIN IN THE BUTT AND HARRASERS of no use what so ever. If stopped on the highway tell them to shove off as they are interfering with your CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS of freedom of movement any where in the U S A of your choice. Do not be INTIMADATED BY THESE GOONS!!!

    • JeromefromLayton

      Avoidance is the better path along with "decertifying" those enablers in the next two elections. Check Youtube for what can happen when you question authority. Hint: "Right" doesn't matter. Also, we need stronger candidates next time around who can handle the "Chicago" machine which has been around a long time, like more than a century.

      • fiftysevenchevy

        Stronger candidates won't do a Bit of good as long as the Dumocrats retain their Cheating by Fraud skills!!!!!

        • JeromefromLayton

          Remember, Strong candidates and an equally strong campaign. Can't remember the source, but "If it isn't close, they can't win by cheating." applies. The Republicans left issues such as Fast and Furious, Libya, Solyndra, etc. laying on the table when they should have been clubbing the opposition with them. Remember that "47%"? Romney phrased it incorrectly: They THINK they aren't paying taxes while the actual truth is that Obamacare crippled up their HSAs and set up a condition that may lead to them losing their jobs or going part-time, if they are lucky, and, yes, they pay a ton of taxes that don't show up on that 1040.

        Will there even be a next "election"?

    • cmdorsey

      You should just start screaming "RACISTS, BIGOTS, HATERS" like they do to us for not calling them ANY names (to their faces). You know the illegal aliens are discriminated against if anyone asks them for legal papers. Mexico has an ID system and call for Identification for them. But if they are in America, sucking our resources dry, it's suddenly RACIST to ask them for an ID. Basically, these adm. members are full-fledged, cold blooded communist-marxists, no better and probably MUCH WORSE than Hitler.

  • ARMYOF69

    I guess, our only hope left is for some brave generals to remove this piece if $hit president off his throne, along with our non existent representatives. I would certainly support that. The sooner the better.

    • cmdorsey

      I've been living for the day we get a national televised perp-walk with about 50-60 or 75 of them handcuffed and chained together walking out of our White House. We may need to appoint some people to take over some of the leadership areas and just tell the criminals, their fun is over. We can't sit and take this. We just can't. Too much blood, life, sweat and tears have gone before us, and present, to preserve liberty here and other countries. Karma's a bytch and it will catch up with them, I hope. One bright spot is that when I started this crusade against this izlomic Bassturd in 2008 (I KNEW what they were up to - I knew he was a groomed radical 'plant') I just got on twitter. I really hadn't been interested in getting a twitter account but when I did, I had gained abt 2000 followers. Then, abt 5 months before the election, I was gaining about 25 a day. Like-minded people coming together there and sharing ideas. It helped, that's for sure. They have been waking up, but I had hoped it would have been a year or so earlier, but I'll take it. I thought we basically were alone in our thinking. I knew about his exec. order he signed in Dec. 2009 granting full immunity to interpol on US land. He is signing exec. orders right and left. I was wondering, if you know, can he be handcuffed by the generals? The way they arrogantly stick their noses up at us and ignoring the courts, I didn't know if there was ANYTHING we could do. I see you were in the army in 1969? Nam?

        when elections fail us and the criminals take over, then theres the cartridge box

      • auhunter

        The Generals can't do anything, unfortunately they are under his direct control, and could be Court Martialed with some severe penalties, though they do have the option of disobeying any order contrary to the Constitution. They had better be on very firm ground on this though also as they would be Court Martialed and have to prove their case, which could take months, or even years, as in the Ft. Hood shootings. We could take him to court regarding his asurpation of his executive powers by use of EO's etc. You know though that no federal judge would take the case. The other alternative would be impeachment if you could find at least two Congressmen with balls enough to go for it. A MSgt & 1st Sgt, AF, 26 years, with 2 tours in Nam during the 60's.

        Maybe they can be hand cuffed & shackled & put on a three tiered box car & sent to a death camp instead of us. I don't understand why we cannot stand up to them there is more of us then of them, are we that afraid of Obozo that we can't run him & his minions out of office & take our country/nation back?

        • RH6194

          The numbers are clearly on our side, however they have the organization. If we had a way to become organized, it would be no contest! However that is always the problem when the masses are not happy with their governments. Even in protest rallies, you still have hundreds or thousands of people all doing their own thing rather than a specific plan for what it is that the protest wants to accomplish. The other problem is that a LOT of people complain and would be part of a peaceful demonstration, but with tensions as high as they are, it wouldn't take much for the government to unleash deadly firepower on the protestors. It's easy to make comments on these chat forums, but how many people are truly ready to die for what they believe? Heck, only 57% cared enough to even vote...do you really think they are prepared to die over a political protest? Sadly so many are apathetic that we could become socialist with America becoming a thing of the past and many of them would go on living with their head in the sand!

    Listen, our way of life has changed forever. The TSA perverts are not going away. The have nots gave BHO a referendum to keep the welfare coming. Believe me... the gov't will control a lot more before these next 4 years come to a close. Me, I drive... it's more relaxing and you get to see a lot more of the country, and the only groping comes from my spouse!

    • Vette66

      For my job I have to fly. 4 time I took toothpaste through the checkpoint. It was OK. The 5th time TSA said it was to big of a tube. I said I had traveled before with the toohpaste but she didn't care. Now I had to throw it is the trash. I wonder if she needed toothpaste at home?

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Doc-Smith/100002549106697 Doc Smith

        They take the trash bags to their locker rooms and divide their spoils after each shift.

    • DixieAngel_76

      Yet, I wonder how long it will be before every private car must pass through a TSA checkpoint as well? It's not that far fetched.

  • The Sull

    Wowwwwww! What a stretch. Just blame Pres. Bush for everything. I mean it could not have anything to do with cars being lighter do to CAFE standards and dumbasses texting while driving.

    • RogerZ

      No doubt those are contributing factors, but you can't deny the fact that people are "opting out" of flying altogether in favor of driving. And there are enough people doing this that makes driving a little more risky. There are many more people on the road that otherwise would have flown if it weren't for the TSA's security theater.

      As for "blaming Bush for everything," the TSA was created under his administration with a Democrat-controlled House and a Republican-controlled Senate. So, it wasn't entirely Bush's fault, although he did sign the bill.

  • jvb1980808

    TSA....now known as THE UNTOUCHABLES.

    • Vette66

      Yep, union membership does that.

      • DixieAngel_76

        That is why the unions must be broken. They are no longer serving any useful purpose, other than for an ever more communistic government.

        • pat78

          Affirmative Action and related "benefits" need to be broken down also.

        • DixieAngel_76

          Agreed.

  • rchguns

    The TSA was never really about catching terrorists. It was 100% about controlling the movement of Americans. It's one of the major linchpins That Diaper Head Obama has put in place to maintain control of America. He has homeland security as his private army answerable only to him( remember his campaign promise of the federal police force as well armed and well-trained as a US military). To successfully take control of any section of the country there are a few things you must do before hand. First off you must control or eliminate firearms in the hands of citizens. Second you must control the flow of information by controlling what is reported who doesn't report( is already got that , the media has become his lapdog) and thirdly you must control the movement of people so that no assistance other portions are other people can come to the aid of those under attack.

    Welcome to the wild wonderful world Of Obama Zombie Land.

    • pat78

      We face a bigger problem than Obama. As the global elitists, both republican and democrat, make money and rule over us, the devaluation of the dollar continues. When the dollar crashes, a new currency will be issued exchanging each dollar for four cents! That's a huge shift!

  • Dean

    I have refused to fly ever since the TSA was mobilized.

    • Penguin9penguin

      The last I flew was in 2001...and I don't intend to fly anytime soon. Too many rules and regulations

  • EHeassler_USNRet

    TSA claiming that they prevent terrorism is understandable. Some years ago, I installed elephant repellers in my front yard. I know they work because no elephants have ever come onto my property. If you need them, I'll be glad to sell you mine.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kathy.f.skaggs Kathy Fugitt Price Skaggs

    The TSA can't catch any terrorists the only people they search is 4 year old kids or 80 year old grandma's. They avoid any appearance of profiling and therefore don't even search young male arabs. What group of people have commited the terrorist acts in the USA in the last 20 years? Young male arabs they very people they won't search. They are worthless.

  • The Sull

    Instead of bitching about people you don't even know, why don't you put pressure on the politicians. Have you ever asked these people who work for TSA if they have served their Country? At the big airport in Houston (IAH) they have many who have served in all branches honorably. Some retired some served in Iraq and Afganistan. I saw one who had a prosthetic leg knee down. But I guess they suck too.

    • pat78

      It's not the individuals working for TSA, it's that there is a TSA that has expanded government tyranny.

      • Renellin

        You said it exactly right--it's the whole notion of the TSA and their purposes in humiliating people--but only the wrong ones.

  • freedomringsforall

    Another reason why:

    We need to get these commie, fascist, Islamic terrorist codling bunch of scum out of power in these United States.

    Then we need to work our bums off to get our freedoms and rights restored.

    We are the only hope left for this planet and for all those down trodden and less fortunate to look to as their hope for true freedom and all that it brings.

    We must stay united and take the hope, the light, and the right of freedom to every last corner and dark alley and to every last soul in this world.

    • Renellin

      Clearly we cannot do this by simply voting, as those counting the votes cannot be trusted either. Why no outrage about Cleveland and Philadelphia with their voting counts of 100%?

  • Renellin

    The author was doing well until the end--the threat of terrorism is real, and the rate at which terrorists will try is steady. However, they have already won by making traveler's lives miserable through the TSA, among other actions. As long as they are impacting us on a regular basis, they don't even need to blow themselves up.
