´I don´t want to go to Disney

The parents of a toddler with spinal bifida are outraged after TSA officials forced their daughter to undergo a series of additional security measures ahead of their flight to Disney World. Nathan and Annie Forck were flying out of their home state of Missouri on a February 8 flight bound for Orlando, Florida with their wheelchair-bound daughter Lucy and their two other children. Mrs Forck took a six-minute video detailing their toddler’s cries as she said through tears that she didn’t want to go to Disney World anymore, and is claiming the TSA discriminates against people who use mobility devices.

Words fail to express the outrage at this utterly useless and creepy agency, the TSA. Let us not forget that the TSA, and also curly-que mandatory fluorescent lights with the banning of 60W(+) light bulbs, is an outgrowth of so-called "compassionate conservative" G. W. Bush. As much as I liked G. W., his presidency really turned out to be an overall dud.

Hey people, feel safer with TSA and Homeland security protecting you? Billions of dollars down the hole, rights being trampled left and right and yet these two agencies have not caught one single terrorist to date! Another example of your government coming to help you!

The TSA agent is a dang liar. She told the mother it was illegal to film the assault (yet sure wasn´t just a ´patdown´). Just another unionized government liar paid for by us.

i have a friend whose grandson is a quad and lives his life in a wheelchair. The TSA
made him leave his wheelchair, checked him out physically, went over the chair and any and all containers on the chair, and detained him and his family quite a while.

There are more of these outlandish searches
than we know about. Having peopis who are so challenge move about in spaces unfamiliar
is crewl. His grandfather is a doctor and his grandmother was a PTA.

How much do you want to bet these TSA agents never change their gloves the whole day through after touching hundreds of people.

My adult son has Autism. High functioning, but Autism nonetheless. He and I flew to a wedding a couple of years ago and I lived in absolute dread of him getting jacked up by some gung-ho TSA agent hell-bent on jacking someone up just for GPs. Fortunately it didn´t happen but after reading this story and others like it I´m scared to death to ever subject him to this kind of treatment. He´d probably end up in jail and I´d be in an adjoining cell.

When the citizens get tired of these abuses, there will be hell to pay.
What will be government´s response? Not reinstate the constitution. Not punish the guilty. Not even commit suicide in utter shame. No, they will try to ban more guns.

There are services that escort you through security and take care of your busy work at the airport. They can be expensive in some airports (like Atlanta -- ridiculous), but they are worth it a lot of the time. Especially if you´re traveling with a special needs passenger.

The headline is deceiving and unfair to Disney World which had nothing to do with what happened. Makes it sound like DW abused the boy so he didn´t want to go back. Aside from that, the TSA treatment was outrageous.

On a related note, the TSA will remove all of those ´´bare-naked scanners´´ by June. Something about how they could never come up a solution to the TSA agents constantly viewing the traveler´s ´wares´.

Next, all those wind mills.

Wait! FTA: "Mr Forck, an attorney, told Fox News that he knew it was legal to record the event and said that if the same instance had occurred outside the setting of an airport, it would be illegal."

How the heck is it illegal to videotape someone molesting your daughter OUTSIDE of an airport?? That makes no sense. If someone (even a police officer) is touching my child against my will (whether in or out of an airport), I will videotape them and I will fight any stupid laws that would counter my right to do so!!!

At one time I was a frequent flier but I stopped flying two years ago after the way they treated my wife,who needs a cane for stability, by making her stand with her legs spread for a complete pat down. Why? She was wearing a small gold cross she forgot to remove prior to going through the intrusive xray machine. They saw to it she would be sorry, vindictive low lifes!

Why do the people put up with this criminal abuse of their innocent children and their invalid family members. I haven´t flown since the inception of the TSA and never will.

#10, whenever my mom files, we call ahead and arrange a wheelchair (they broke her scooter, now we use theirs). An airport agent brings the wheelchair and gets her all the way to the gate. She goes through the employee security line, and has never been hassled.

The only bad time was in Jacksonville, FL airport. The guy brought the wheelchair and left us on her own, we had two carry-on bags, and two large purses. He said it wasn´t his job to push her through the airport. Mom couldn´t hold all of it in her lap, so she held some (and got bruised for the effort), and I had something on my shoulder, and something on the handles. He missed his $5 or $10 tip.

We have never been charged by any airport, it´s just the tip.

This is one reason we don´t fly much. But when we do, I am prepared to be barred from flying for life because I will not video tape my child weeping and being molested. I will be otherwise engaged.

A truly emetic announcement from the grim but indispensable Swedish flatpack furniture emporium IKEA: they are considering changing the recipe of their most popular food line--meatballs--in order to help save the world from global warming. [Snip] IKEA--the place you go to, reluctantly, because the furniture is so cheap and practical, not because you want to save the planet for Mother Gaia--actually employs a "head of sustainability"? If that´s not a strong dump signal for the stock, I don´t know what is. What´s worse, though, is that IKEA actually admits to allowing the kind of food it serves in its restaurants

Choc horror: It might be Easter but the

The price of chocolate could soar over the next few years as surging demand puts further pressure on the global cocoa crisis--and experts predict the demand could become unsustainable by 2020. Experts are warning that a growing taste for chocolate in Asia--particularly in China--means cocoa farmers will need more help to provide a greater amount to export or manufacturers will be forced to use less cocoa in their products. It is predicted chocolate prices will soar to keep up with the rising demand--otherwise consumers will increasingly be offered products filled with substitutes, such as nuts and fruits, to ‘pack out’ chocolate bars.

In 1925, Rudyard Kipling wrote an uncharacteristically restrained and sombre short story called The Gardener. It tells of a woman’s search for her illegitimate son, who goes missing in action on the Western Front. After the Armistice, she learns that he has been killed, and is buried in a military cemetery. Arriving there, she finds a man planting flowers in the earth and asks him where she might find her “nephew”. The man looks at her “with infinite compassion,” and tells her “Come with me, and I will show you where your son lies”. As she leaves the graveyard, she

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
