I’m not getting the connection between a nun in her habit getting a TSA pat-down and a recording of a man’s use of a crude expression on a TV station show in response to the explanation of a pat-down by TSA???

So when a terrorist placing a bomb in their rectum (which neither pat downs nor scanners can detect, and has already been done)… will we submit to full cavity searches as well?
The TSA completely violates the 4th Amendment by treating everyone as a criminal simply because they would like to board a plane.

Sigh. The times we live in today. I would say that nuns should be exempt, but then the next terrorist will just dress up as a nun…
Why can’t we all just get along?

Actually criminals are often treated far worse than airline passengers. Unless, of course, they are well off.

Interesting how those deffending the scanners/pat downs used to be outraged about having to take off our shoes!

Am I mistaken, or is the screener a muslim woman, searching a Catholic nun?

Has anyone noticed that the uniform worn by the TSA officer indicates that this picture is at least 3 years old? Why is this picture relevant now?
