Wouldn't that make them better at their job?

""TSA holds all of its employees to the highest professional and ethical standards and has a zero tolerance for misconduct in the workplace," TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said in a statement."


Then obviously she hasn't seen the TSA screeners at JFK airport for International flights. Just horrible.

At least when they're asleep they're not engaging in nard-grabbing. Yours, anyway.

It was pure coincidence that the pictures were taken while the TSA workers were ahhhh ummmmm in the middle of blinking their eyes. Says shop steward/union rep/democratic campaign donation bundler Joey Baggadonuts,

every night and weekend there are thousands of security guards in warehouses, offices and business parks that are asleep. you try doing a mindless soul-sucking job for crap wages and see how long you stay awake.

KrispyKritter: every night and weekend there are thousands of security guards in warehouses, offices and business parks that are asleep. you try doing a mindless soul-sucking job for crap wages and see how long you stay awake.


The difference is that we weren't sold on the notion that WE WOULD ALL DIE if those warehouses weren't held to the utmost invasive standards of security.

I have to wonder about those fancy new backscatter x-ray machines. I had a screener tell me to pull a boarding pass out of my breast pocket before going through the machine. If a thin slip of paper can fark up their accuracy, how are they supposed to find the bombs in real life?

They probably got a raise, new benefits plus profit sharing.

And if they were somebody's uncle/newphew/son/daughter then they got promoted into an executive position.

Just another day up in New Jersey.

You know, it's not that the paper would "fark up their accuracy"... it's that the screener knows that piece of paper will be detected by the machine, thus making them either pat you down or send you back through the screener. He/she was just expediting things by telling you to empty your pockets completely.

//Not that TSA is useful... just saying...
