Half Of TSA’s 30,000 Employees Accused Of Misconduct; Nearly A Third Multiple Times

I hadn’t been on a plane in a few months but last week I flew into Atlanta.

I always fall out of the TSA rhythm if I haven’t flown for a while. I always forget to take off my belt. Pretty much every time. Do I take out my wallet? Good thing I remembered to wear loafers this time.

It’s insane. Really, think about it. It’s nuts. Then we have to stand in that machine and get blasted by radiation while we stand with our hands over our head like some sort of criminal.

DEA Promised TSA Agent a Cut of Passengers’ Seizable Cash

Call it a finder’s fee, or a commission. What’s the big deal? So the DEA told a TSA screener that he or she could keep a cut of any cash he or she was able to sniff out? What’s wrong with that? As we know, anyone carrying a significant amount of cash is a criminal. The DEA and the TSA agent were just doing what they could to keep us safe.

If you have a private jet, no radiation at the airport, Fly commercial and TSA says you must be irradiated if they say so

This is a totally normal thing in a free society.

This comes from a concerned citizen –

Is another part of this angle that people wealthy enough to own private jets (including the late Osama bin Laden and other more current Arab ga-jillionaires, a small percentage of whom maybe politically inclined in Osama’s direction) aren’t forced through radiation in order to be able to board their own airplanes, while the other 99.9% are forced through radiation to board any airplane?

“The TSA does nothing but violate your privacy and wastes your time.” (Oh, and taxpayers pay for it too of course.) VIDEO

The TSA is a show. All the lines, the screenings, the taking off of shoes and belts, the snarky indifferent attitudes, the government sanctioned groping, is all nonsense. But there is now a TSA lobby which has entrenched itself and we’ll likely have to deal with it forever.

And don’t forget the radiation doses.

Of course, alternatively, you can just “fly private” and stroll across the tarmac to your plane from your car. No TSA for those with private planes.

TSA Screeners At Denver International Manipulated System To Grope Men’s Genitals

Not even the incident which is being investigated. This is just a stock photo.

No big deal. So what if you have to take off your shoes, your belt, stick your hands up over your head and get blasted with radiation every time you want to get on a plane. I mean if you don’t like it you can just charter a private plane or buy one of your own. (Private plane passengers don’t go through the TSA gauntlet. I wonder why?

Boehner: Shutdown of Homeland Security Department Possible

I certainly wouldn’t cry many tears if the Department of Homeland Security was actually shut down. (We unfortunately are not looking at a real shutdown – “shutdowns” never are.) In fact I think many Americans would be pretty darn happy if the DHS just faded away into the mist of American mistakes.

Like Dan Rather.

The TSA Will Require A Special ID Card That Contains RFID Chip To Board Flights Starting 2016

“I’m sorry sir but you do not have an RFID chip implant. That is in violation of the Public Safety Protocol of 2020. Please step over here for questioning.”

Well, it’s not implanted under your skin yet.

This used to be tinfoil hat territory. (BTW I don’t think I’ve ever seen actual tin foil before.) Those were the days. Not anymore. If you don’t have a drivers license with a tracking chip you are not getting on a plane come 2016 according to this article.

Dear America, I saw you naked and yes, we were laughing. Confessions of an ex-TSA agent.

Those of you chattel who must “fly commercial” have to go through the TSA gauntlet anytime you want to fly anywhere. I pity you. You let yourself be groped, x-rayed, and generally violated by the government just because you want to get on a plane.

May I suggest a private plane? It is so much more convenient, and there is no TSA. You see a private plane can’t be used as a missile in a terrorist attack just like a commercial airliner.
