    is an article by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, Tennessee.
    www.forbes.com/the TSA is coming to a highway near you

    I came upon roadblocks by the Border Patrol twice in the past year.No problem- the BP guys were very professional, courteous, reasonable .

    But the TSOs - Transportation Security Officers - might be a different story altogether. TSA personnel are not Law Enforcement Officers and cannot make an arrest, the article explains.

    Judging by some of the TSO`s I`ve met at airports- unlike the Border Patrol Agents ......well, courteous, reasonable, professional - NOT SO MUCH !

    Wonder if anyone in Tennessee( or elsewhere) has encountered those TSOs on the highway and how they treated people at a roadblock.

    But if the TSA starts doing highway border checks that will be the beginning of the end in America. 1984 here we come. :(

    *1984 the book not the times :)

    While I detest the notion that TSA is getting any more power, this isn't really on-topic for THR.
