Big Brother contaminates feeding tube

The TSA (Transportation Security Administration), which is the branch of government charged with taking away Americans' nail clippers, recently forced an adolescent with a feeding tube to open his sterile backup tube for inspection:

James Hoyne, 14, has a feeding tube in his stomach and carries a back-up in a sealed clear plastic bag. Hoyne said two weeks ago a TSA officer insisted on opening the sterile equipment, contaminating his back-up feeding up tube which he later needed."

I said 'Please don't open it' and she said 'I have to open it whether you like it or not. If I can't open it, I can't let you on the plane,'" Hoyne said of his conversation with the TSA screener.

Your tax dollars at work!!
