We all know that air travel presents a heightened danger of infection — low air circulation (cockpit air is circulated twenty times more often than that in the cabin), other people’s germs circulating in a close environment, the problems accompanying air pressure (equal to an altitude of 8,000 feet on most long-range flights), and so on.
Now it comes to light (h/t to Drudge) that the TSA has no health and safety standards for its fondle-grip-squeeze-hack agents. They seldom change gloves between victims, and, when they do, they take the “new” pair from their soiled pockets, where they have a stash. Countless innocent passengers can be infected every day at each airport.
This is sanitation, North Korea style. I recall a medical study some years ago that reached the startling conclusion that physicians in hospitals unwittingly spread infection from room to room and patient to patient because of accumulated germs on their ties! Of course, if your pediatrician wore the same gloves examining your daughter that she wore with fifteen other kids that morning, she’d be barred hospital privileges in a heartbeat, and up for egregiously unprofessional conduct before the medical board.
For years, teachers government school employees have attempted to “desensitize children from their embarrassment and shame about sex,” as one such expert once explained to me. They do it with sex ed, with “bullying” and “sex abuse” programs, and with that paragon of protection, the Child Protection Service (“We love the public schools,” one CPS agent told me. “We can inspect the child right down to the underwear without the parents’ permission — or their knowledge, for that matter.”) The TSA outrages are not happening in a vacuum. They are part and parcel of the government’s unilateral Declaration of Our Dependence on incompetent, arrogant, and (now revealed) filth-laden slugs.8:23 am on November 23, 2010 Email Christopher Manion
