I'll be there! I'd love to hear some sign ideas:
"TSA: We get off, or you don't get on."
"Thousands of Sexual Assaults"
"John Pistole = Child Molester"

or maybe just "My body is my own." That's what I've been saying all along.

I'll see you folks there -- we should put together a mini FT contingent. :-D PM me if you're interested in drinks before or after (or heck, during!)

I'd love to join. Too bad my day job is the evening job, and I'll be stuck at work. I hope there are future rallies, on weekends.

I wasn't able to find any stories about it, but I am wondering how this event went?

This event was great! We heard from Michael Boldin of the Tenth Amendment Center that we're all responsible for telling the TSA, every day and in every way, to go to hell. That transcript is here: http://www.tenthamendmentcenter.com/...nkin-scanners/

We also heard from Michael Roberts, the pilot who objected to being sexually assaulted on his way to work, about his nauseating experiences with the TSA. We heard from Amie Stepanovich about EPIC's legal challenges to the TSA's sexually abusive tactics.

I held a sign that said, "I'm not your porn star, TSA!" and another one that said, "I was sexually assaulted by the TSA." I talked with many people about their traumatic and emotional responses to having their sexual parts rubbed by TSA screeners. We will stop this. We will never stop fighting until we stop this.

Lol I'm a little slow. No jokes, please.

Are you saying it was a bust, or just about?
