We all need to boycott flying for a few months over these TSA goons. That would be long enough to drive most airliners into bankruptcy. The government wants the tax revenue from the airlines more than it wants to humiliate us so the TSA would disappear if a protest were done.
I can't believe people are such cowards that they won't do anything to stop this TSA tyranny.

Florida Professor Arrested for Having a "Suspicious" Bagel on a Plane
Passengers claimed man had suspicious package in the overhead compartment
A Florida professor was arrested and removed from a plane Monday after his fellow passengers alerted crew members they thought he had a suspicious package in the overhead compartment.
That "suspicious package" turned out to be keys, a bagel with cream cheese and a hat.
Ognjen Milatovic, 35, was flying from Boston to Washington D.C. on US Airways when he was escorted off the plane for disorderly conduct following the incident.
Recently, passenger complaints have resulted authorities taking action against innocent passengers who went to the bathroom too often on a flight and who were just being annoying.
In the hyper-sensitive world of flying, sneezing too often could get you kicked off a flight and questioned by the FBI.
Milatovic, who is a mathematics and statistics professor at the University of North Florida, was minding his business when other passengers turned (him in).
When confronted by the US Airways crew about his "suspicious package," Milatovic got on his cell phone. The crew asked him to hang it up and sit down. When he refused, he was cuffed.
Milatovic was also charged with interfering with the operation of an aircraft.
Poor guy went through a good groping just to get handcuffed in the end.
Even though a flight to Oregon costs only $400, I'm planning to drive. I simply will not subject myself to sexual assault in order to fly. And apparently, there's no guarantee that even after all that, you won't be arrested for having a bagel.
What a nation of wimps! Are the accusers being prosecuted for making a false report?
Of course not.
Think about where this is leading. Next thing, travelers will be looking around, trying to figure out who may be close to filing a report on them, and then filing reports on those people first out of fear that if they don't, they may be the one being arrested.
Life in 21st century America is unraveling quickly.
Some half-blind busy-body in Long Beach (and trigger-happy cops) got Doug Zerby killed because he couldn't tell the difference between a garden nozzle and a gun.
The sure sign of an a-hole official is when they won't back down when it becomes obvious they're wrong. They could see this man had a bagel and ordinary items with him, but they still got all uppity and had him arrested.
