TSA Will Now Be Even More Invasive as They Take On New Virus Duties

What was it that Franklin said about security and freedom?

Dealing with the TSA has never been fun, to say the least, and these blue-shirted goons are about to become an ever bigger nuisance than before.

Now, in addition to removing your shoes, being unwillingly x-rayed, and facing the possibility of being legally groped just to board a plane, the Transportation Security Administration will now be performing medical checks on passengers during the age of coronavirus.

U.S. officials are preparing to begin checking passengers’ temperatures at roughly a dozen airports as soon as next week, as the coronavirus pandemic has heightened travel anxieties, according to people familiar with the matter.

Airlines have been pushing for the Transportation Security Administration to start taking passengers’ temperatures as part of a multifaceted effort to keep potentially sick people from boarding planes and to make passengers feel more comfortable taking trips again. Demand for air travel has dropped more than 90% amid transport restrictions and stay-at-home orders.

It appears that, once again, we’ll be giving the government another slice of our own sovereignty in order to board a plane that we paid to board.
