Citrate1007: Reduce the Deficit......get rid of the TSA
cloud_van_dame: Yet more evidence the US is becoming a third-world country.
SweetSaws: Fark: man was carrying $500 in cash
offacue: That's the second time today I read drawer spelled as draw. Is this a thing?
LessO2: There have been more TSA screeners arrested than terrorists caught or plots foiled.Yet, some people think it's more important to kill Big Bird versus taking a hard look at this $8 billion a year expense who regularly fails us.
what_now: Last Sunday I was flying through SFO, and there was a medium sized security line, about 20 minutes in total, and a guy opted out. The TSA brat sighed and snapped out "Male assist" and the man went to the side. The next guy said "so..if you opt out, you just get an extra pat down?" and she responded "Yeah, but you might have to wait a really long time." with a disgusted look on her face.Bemused, because I never, ever go through the naked cancer machine, I waited till it was my turn and opted out, and she sighed and made a big deal of calling out "Female assist" and gave me a dirty look.I asked her if she knew how dangerous the machines were, and she started to respond and I cut her off and said "No one does".The lady who gave me my free molestation was perfectly pleasant and professional, as always. They put the real idiots at the front.
Pud: Who would ever have thought that taking people from the lowest rung in the ladder of life, giving them complete power over other people while removing any accountability would have lead to something like this?
zarberg: I have a relative who worked for the TSA a while ago, claims that this kinda thing happened a lot more often than you'd think. I think his anecdote went something like, "I knew a dude who would quickly pull bills out of wallets unattended for even a few seconds in those little trays, and then quietly brag about how many $20's he got at the end of his shift."/CSB
metallion: I'm sort of glad that my wife hates the thought of flying, so at least for now, I'm not going to have to deal with any of those lying theiving pricks.......yet....Never know when they'll be at rest areas, and stops along the interstate..
semiotix: After first denying to police that he had stolen the money, Irwin later admitted he had put the cash in his locker as a form of punishment in retaliation for the man complaining over his treatment. Prison PlanetFACTS & FIGURESLast month, a TSA screener admitted to a woman traveling through Houston Airport that she was prevented from boarding her flight for retaliatory reasons as punishment for a bad attitude rather than any genuine security threat, after the woman refused to allow TSA agents to test her drink for explosives. Prison PlanetThe TSA, in October 2010, directed the use of the scanners, sometimes known as advanced imaging technology, which some critics fear could emit too much radiation. ReutersIn addition, the TSA authorized enhanced pat-downs, which could include the touching of genitals, buttocks and breasts, for passengers unwilling to go through the scanners. Passengers who rejected both procedures would not be allowed to fly. ReutersCritics maintain the scanners, which use radiation to peer through clothes, are threats to Americans' privacy and health. wired.comThe effectiveness of pat-downs does not matter very much, because the obvious goal of the TSA is to make the pat-down embarrassing enough for the average passenger that the vast majority of people will choose high-tech humiliation. The Atlantic What kind of joke-ass SEO, link-bait, and/or content aggregator spam malarkey is going on here?
TacoBeelzebub: /It would be easier to blow up people in the security line now than to try to blow them up on the plane
