Resistance is possible

A restaurant near the Seattle-Tacoma airport refuses to serve the loathsome TSA people that come in the place. The owner of the joint travels a lot and despises the misery dealt out by the gummint gropers. Eight-sixing them out of his establishment is his bit of revenge. A waitress explains:
 We even have the police on our side and they have helped us escort TSA agents out of our cafe. Until TSA agents start treating us with the respect and dignity that we deserve, then things will change for them in the private sector.
Read the whole thing here. There's more TAC evildoing recounted in the post. It makes me happy to see any signs of resistance to the obnoxious government apparatus that has made travelling such utter misery these days. Once upon a time, we Americans would have screamed our heads off about the abrogation of 4th Amendment rights to refuse arbitrary search; now we just take it.

Maybe they could let the TSA agents eat, but before they pay the check, subject them to body cavity searches to make sure they haven't stolen, say, the flatware. They sure seem to have sticky fingers.

Rep. Cissna of Alaska ended up taking a boat home to Juneau rather than deal with another invasive pat down.
If I was in her shoes, I'd have done the same thing.
