Wednesday, November 24, 2010 is NATIONAL OPT-OUT DAY!
It’s the day ordinary citizens stand up for their rights, stand up for liberty, and protest the federal government’s desire to virtually strip us naked or submit to an “enhanced pat down” that touches people’s breasts and genitals. You should never have to explain to your children, “Remember that no stranger can touch or see your private area, unless it’s a government employee, then it’s OK.”
National Opt-Out organizer Brian Sodegren suggests that all airline passengers refuse to go through body scanning machines on November 24 and require Transportation Security Administration staff to perform manual pat downs on all travelers. The objective is to bring attention to what Mr. Sodegren claims is an abuse of government power “to virtually strip us naked or submit to an ‘enhanced pat down’ that touches people’s breasts and genitals.”
