#rsrh I say we take off and fire *everybody* in the TSA.

It’s the only way to be sure.

A man’s attempt to bring the ashes of his grandfather home to Indianapolis ended with an angry scene in a Florida airport, with the ashes spilled on the terminal floor.

Allegedly the TSA agent who broke her own agency’s rules laughed about it.  If true, that tells me that the rot in the system is so institutionalized that the only valid way of treating the problem would be the bureaucratic equivalent of BURN IT WITH FIRE.

  1. Question:
    Why does the Romney campaign not make a few noises about this? I.e., “First 100 days, the TSA goes ‘boom’!”

    I know that would buy him more than a few votes.

  2. Without a doubt, one of the most despised agencies in the federal govt. Even liberals hate this thing.

  3. I could almost be convinced to vote for a Democrat if they would promise get rid of TSA.

    Almost, because a promise from a Democrat is like a promise of rain from a blue sky.

  4. The TSA are the giant puppets of security .. they don’t really work that well as street theater, nobody particularly likes them, but somehow – there they are.

    If we have real security, we can do away with the ongoing joke of TSA street theater… if we don’t have real security, then we should still do away with the joke and use the money to get closer to fixing the problems.


    p.s. Prior to the TSA take-over, the company that provided screening agents in Chicago were praised for hiring ex-cons. All the TSA did, IIRC, was to change where the paychecks come from.
