TSA keeping us safe from CNN reporters

Think the Federal government can't muscle its way into your life any more than it already does? CNN's Anderson Cooper and Drew Griffin explain how the Transportation Security Administration can make your ordinary, law-abiding life miserable:

According to a Northeast Intelligence Network report, Americans who opt out of radiation-emitting body scanners operated by TSA are being placed on a "Non-Islamic Domestic Terrorist" list by the US Department of Homeland Security.

Naming ordinary American travelers "domestic extremists" is insane. Every American should contact their elected officials - Federal, state and even local - to complain about this. Rather than truly focusing on air travel security, the TSA is being used to control and condition American citizens to the idea that Federal permission is required for everything in life. Congress must act immediately to stop repeated TSA violations of our Fourth Amendment rights.

If we accept all this as "normal," the terrorists have indeed won.
