LarryDan43: 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?

But enough about Congress.


Congress is for people who can't pass the TSA written exam.

Yep. It's absolutely Bush's fault that 4 years later nothing has been done about the TSA.


So you're saying the Republican house would have welcomed an Obama administration proposal to abolish the TSA with open arms?

Who watches TSA employees in secure areas in airports? Other TSA employees? Lawmakers should travel incognito and without special privileges through US airports. How can people who do not get TSA'd pass laws when they don't get the benefits of either a high dose of radiation or an intrusive patdown.

Okay, being Fark we can all agree that the TSA front liners are a bunch of idiots in general, but did nobody notice they were reading a PressTV article, as in the propaganda mouthpiece of the Iranian mullahs?

Excuse me if I treat their stories with even less credibility than WND or a PrisonPlanet post.

Does anyone have a reputable source for the actual story that doesn't need to be taken with a bag of rock salt? Thanks in advance...

What you're attempting to do here is simultaneously threadjack, tell a story about how cops are dicks, and let on as to how you were Mr. Cool Ice the whole way through and not in any way still fuming about it however many years after the fact.

That's an incredibly high degree of difficulty. They won't even let you try it in tournaments, just exhibition events. No offense, guy, but you're not there yet.

You seem to suggest that Obama cares about civil liberties enough to want to abolish the TSA. He has been the worst President to date on civil liberties. So much so that his interpretations of laws on the books are unknown. He loves his secrecy regime and hides behind it at every chance.

I think Obama very much likes the TSA, It isn't like he has to go through their gates.

You're covered in security bukaki and can't stand up for your hard won and very own rights.
You lost, America.
And this is what you get.
You get uneducated thieves in polyester uniforms groping your junk and stealing your shait.
Not even white color crime.
You asked for it by not saying What thte FARK the first time it was suggested and now that you've had a taste, they are going to ram it up your asses for the rest of your lives.
Farking pussies.
Enjoy your flight.

It looks like working for the TSA is the dream job of rent-a-cops and police academy failures everywhere.. You get to wear a badge
You get to exert your authority, as much as you like
You get to frisk anyone your little heart desires
you get to intimidate kids and old people
You get to steal whatever you want, whenever you want, and unless you're caught red handed, Ol' Janet will cover your ass 100%..

//come to think of it, joining the TSA part time might be a great hobby job after retirement..
 
2012-10-04 04:10:55 PM
For lots of stupid reasons - I once ended up flying with 9k in cash stuffed in my bag.

I kid you not - but a TSA agent (after the security checkpoint, at the boarding gate) said he was going to be doing random searches as we boarded the plane. Some of us were asked to step aside and let them check our carry-on bags (again).

I'm also not joking when I say I got pulled aside. I was totally expecting to be detained and questioned or something; but oddly enough, the money tucked in my bag, rolled up in a pair of jeans, went undetected.

It took my about an hour after boarding the plane to go 'OH CRAP! DID THEY TAKE MY MONEY!?!??!'
But they hadn't!

I also have never gone through the scanner, always opting out. I like to wear loose pants, so when I take the belt off, the moment they start pawing at my pants, they fall down. Always gets a laugh...

//don't know what I'll do next time I go to Britain. They don't let you opt out. farkin' Nanny State

This Security Comedy is devloving into the worst sort of "lesson in respect for authority".
You allow idiot shills like Chertoff to mock any resemblance to integrity.
You morons are completely destroying any remaining respect for authority the population may still cling to.

TacoBeelzebub: /It would be easier to blow up people in the security line now than to try to blow them up on the plane


I have wondered about this. The effect would be similar, a bunch of people killed, many wounded. The whole damned (presumably major) airport would close for a day doing lots of hassle, and you wouldn't have to smuggle a GOTdamned thing. Just roll up 300 lbs of explosives on one of those rolling carts.

TacoBeelzebub: 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.

So much THIS. As many have said before in TSA threads, it's highly unlikely that terrorists are going to be able to take over a US flight ever again. Post-9/11 attempts have been met with extreme force by airline passengers and the would-be hijacker/bomber has been sucessfully foiled. Given this information, I believe that we should go back to pre-9/11 screening methods and ditch the TSA.

/It would be easier to blow up people in the security line now than to try to blow them up on the plane


Question (serious question, actually): of all the airports in all the world with much less onerous security than ours - how many terrorists have succeeded in their dastardly plots?

Are we still talking about TSA, or have we moved on to what happens if you give a PFC a badge and a gun?

MP: SGT, are you aware you were speeding?
Me: Really? I was doing 2 miles over the speed limit. In a 45 mph zone. So?
MP: Please step out of the car.

CSB 2:
Eglin AFB. I was driving from Niceville to Fort Walton. Decided to cut across the base instead of going around. (National Guard at the time). I was probably doing 43 in a 35 zone in the city. I came up on a military owned van full of MPs. They started following me. I figured they were probably in a hurry too. Slowed down to speed limit as I approached the base property. The second my wheels passed the guard gate, the light come on.
MP: You know you where speeding?
Me: Yeah, I know.
MP: You where doing 5 over
Me: Actualy it was 8. So what?
MP: You know how I know you were speeding? (smugly) I followed you and paced your car
Me: Yes. I know. I saw you. Again, so what?
MP: You're not allowed to speed in the city.
Me: I know. Are you gonna get to the point any time soon?
MP: We have joint jurisdiction with the city. We can pull over any military, anywhere.
Me: Oh, I'm sure.
MP: You know how I knew you were military? (smugly) You had an out of state license plate, short hair, and you drove on the base
Me: That is truely some outstanding reasoning skills you've got there. They're going to promote you to detective soon, right?
MP: You might have this fast little Mustang, but it won't be going anywhere when you lose your base driving privileges.
Me: Over 1 traffic violation out in the city? Seems harsh, but whatever. You gonna give me an 'off base ticket' or whatever so I go about my way?
MP: I tell you what. I'm gonna let you go. Normaly I would give you a tic ...


CSB, my ass.

So you were speeding, you got busted and you had to be an arrogant cock about it? And, an Army PFC MP is comparable to a TSA farktard?

"You can't professionalize unless you federalize," agreed Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, D-S.D.

In a 100-0 vote, the Senate passed a security bill that would put all 28,000 screeners and other airport security personnel on the federal payroll.


and

Sen. Max Cleland, D-Ga., suggests starting "with a fresh outlook here, giving the system a chance to work ... We need the domestic equivalent of the Customs Service."

I don't know what they get paid now, but in 2005 at Dulkles International Airport, one of the busiest in the country, TSA Screeners started at $10.00 per hour. Yup, $20,000 a year in Northern Virginia. And people wonder why they hire morons. You get what you pay for.

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.


b-b-b-but i've been assured that my tinfoil hat is too snug for thinking that our illustrious government would do anything that may put the population at risk.
