Poop TSA fingers are coming out.
 
2011-07-06 01:25:52 PM
awesome, now they're going to x-ray us for realz and there will be no opting out if you want to fly. Welcome to the United States of Pissing Ourselves From Fear.
 
2011-07-06 01:27:51 PM
The way I see it, flying has simply become too dangerous. We should end all long-distance transportation, buy lots of guns and hole up in our cookie-cutter vinyl-sided suburban split-levels.
 
2011-07-06 02:05:53 PM
At this point, the goal of the TSA is basically to stop people from flying anywhere, ever, thus making air travel completely 100% safe.

Who's pissing themselves from fear? I'm more afraid of some asshole TSA-tard having a bad day can my life difficult or the cumulative effects of untrained morons running a radioactive machine.

That was my first thought. I refuse to fly anywhere until this stupidity and invasion of my rights ends.

I'd like Kaiser Permanente to simply set up an OBGYN clinic at the security gates to the airport and I'll get my travel and womanly medical needs attended to simultaneously.

There is no indication of an immediate plot, but the new information could lead to additional screening procedures at the nation's airports. Existing scanners would not necessarily detect bombs implanted under a person's skin, experts said.

Experts and anyone who doesn't have their farking head rooted firmly up their farking ass.

Anyone with an ounce of farking imagination could have figured this out, and if they lacked the imagination they could have seen one of the ocoontless movies where it happened or even the real life case in Saudi.

but hey we only dropped a few million on the cutting edge scanners, right?

2011-07-06 03:04:17 PM
Should we buy duct tape and plastic sheeting? Look for crop dusters we don't know?
 
2011-07-06 03:04:35 PM
"Measures may include interaction with passengers, in addition to the use of other screening methods such as pat-downs and the use of enhanced tools and technologies."

You ever go to the doctor and get a colonoscopy? Yeah, you don't have to go to the doctor for those anymore, just book a flight. Bend over sir, for your safety. Hose is going in. 9/11. 9/11. Better safe than sorry. Why do you hate America? BRB taking nude pics of your kids and groping grandma.

If somebody wants to kill you and has no issues with killing themselves in the process, there's nothing you can do to stop them.

Just accept this simple fact and let us on the farking airplane.
 
2011-07-06 03:05:31 PM
So, by that logic...if somebody figures out a way of taking down planes that is undetectable using current technologies...will the TSA just say "Sorry, we can't ensure your safety, no more flying"?
 
2011-07-06 03:06:13 PM
Dear TSAbby,

I have a large scar from a previous operation. I am a person who flies regularly. Will the uneducated wastes of flesh that you call agents be able to understand that this scar is years old and is in no way a result of any "new surgeries" or terrorism plots?

Go fark yourselves,

Artos

When will the powers-that-be learn:

GSD > TSA

Lobbying has caused us to waste so much time and money in this area it's literally criminal.
 
2011-07-06 03:07:17 PM
So all told, approx. 3,000 people were killed on 9/11. The USA has about 300 million people in it, so your odds of getting killed in a terrorist attack are very very low.

Fear was only the mask used to seize power. Now it's just about control.

...and lucrative contracts making some political cocksuckers and their good friends very, very rich.

I say start profiling, instead of checking over toddlers and 90 year-old women wearing depends. It may not be "politically correct", but it's the logical thing to do. This is shiat getting to be ridiculous.
 
2011-07-06 03:08:16 PM
You know what? F**k it. Abolish the TSA. If someone is going to work THAT hard to blow up the plane I'm on, good game.
 
2011-07-06 03:08:17 PM
If I may translate TSA-speak:

"These measures are designed to be unpredictable, so passengers should not expect to see the same activity at every international airport,"

means:

"We have no idea how to detect these things...so we're not going to actually do anything..but we'll SAY we're doing things...that you won't see..."

Condoleeza Rice said, "Who could have guessed they would use airplanes as bombs?" Maybe not an exact quote, but the answer is still Tom Clancy, among others. What a stupid worthless biatch.

On a related note to stories like this, it's amazing how many people have started considering Amtrak since all of this TSA groping started. People will literally take a day or more out of their trips in order to compensate for the slower speed of train travel because it means they don't have to put up with the TSA and the bullshiat of the airports/airlines. Train travel was non-existent in the traveling public's lexicon five years ago; now people in Missouri are mad because the Missouri River Runner between Kansas City and St. Louis is offline due to flooding. It used to be that no one would have cared.

Personally, I like that. At long last, we might have a solvent national passenger rail system and serious competition to airlines in the near future.

Cheap and easy transport on a flying machine. Ruined.

Thanks for being predictable.

Figured out yet that it has nothing to do with terrorism and everything to do with getting you accustomed to giving up your rights?

That's 1 in 100,000. Is that very very low? Or just very low?

We're all gonna die from something. Get used to it.

You can just do the math, it's not hard:

In 2001, the probability of dying in a terrorist attack was 0.001% (3000/3e8).

In the years since then, it's been ~0%/year, so averaged over the last 10 years, the probability of dying in a terrorist attack within the US is about 0.0001% per year.

Funny thing is. The people making these laws for people to fly on public transportation systems, have PERSONAL transportation systems, so they never have to be raped by the laws they passed.

I mean. If I had a private jet, were an American politician, and never had to go through a screening every single time I flew. I'd let them finger rape the public also. What do I friggin' care? I got the law passed, I got the votes, and most important. The rider got me a raise and a new jet!

Except now they're going to have the same security checks at train stations.
