One of our local Anchorage reps refuses to be molested again by TSA, travels by boat.
Remember, no matter how much they may say that they are "public servants keeping us safe," TSA agents are not serving honorably. They are unionized, unprofessional, incompetent, and abusive of civil liberties.
I personally fly with several pocket constitutions which I leave at checkpoints and am prepared to give to individual agents. I'll grudgingly comply with requests if I'm required to fly with work, but I do not feel shy about telling individual agents that I think they are acting in a completely unacceptable manner. Don't let them go to bed at night feeling smug and satisfied. Don't make a scene, don't break the law, don't end up on the front page of the paper the next day -- but do quietly assert yourself and know your personal boundaries, just like Rep Cissna.
Don't think its fair to take out frustration on individual TSA agents? Remember, nobody is forcing them to work at TSA. TSA originally started out as a decent organization under ADM Loy but they've completely perverted their original mission since.
