SurelyShirley: FTFA: "...with the TSA agent admitting the theft was a punishment for the man's lack of obedience."

Who the fark do these people think they are?


They're the people who can stop you from traveling, cause you to miss your connecting flights, potentially ruin your life by claiming they saw a weapon in your luggage, and you gave them the authority because 9/11, that's who.

amoral: MythDragon: Frothy Panties: 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?
Way to go you badass ARNG you really showed him!

Okay, the first one was a dick for pulling me over for 2mph over the speed limit. Really? 2 mph?

The second was a dick because he had no authority to pull me over in town (or he would have done it) and wanted to be Mr Cool MP and fark with me on the base, where I *wasn't* speeding.

So yeah, I was being a dick to someone who was being a dick to me. I get tagged doing 15 over on the hiway, I am polite and accept the ticket since I was clearly in the wrong.

Who lit the fuze on your tampon?

You reek of douche. Four people in this thread alone have picked up on it to the point that they felt compelled to point it out to you.

For me, it was the fact that you're so proud of being a SGT that you brought it up 3 times in a 60 word story. You have the same attitude as the PFCs you hate on. You have a little bit of power and responsability, and you think it makes you cool. That, and the fact that you told a story about being an asshole, confidant that you were coming out looking cool.


Lmfao all this reeks of is that youre an MP and got the lowest ASVAB score allowable to be in the air force, and got the job that came along with it, and finally figured it out. Or your 19 y/o kid is an MP and gave you stories of grandeur and you probably tell everyone about it on your blog.

Having been through similar situations as the Eglin AFB storyteller, i can at least relate and not immediately jump to conclusions and cry about it on the internet. Hell, just 3 weeks ago, i was in Robins AFB, GA, and, while riding shotgun through the gate from that rocking BBQ place across the tracks, and I had a 2 striper knock on my window, to tell me, to tell the driver, to tell the guy in the backseat, to buckle his seatbelt. Sure, the idiot in the backseat shoulda had his belt on... but It was just another "lol wait what?" type of moment. The TSgt in the back was like. ... "you can tell me to buckle my belt, its ok..." It just forces us to really wonder how the seemingly stupidest of the group get given the authority due to position, rather than rank, and as from Eglin AFB, see it abused, or in my case wonder why he wants to jump through hoops about it, and as a whole,make fun of it

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 ...

If the TSA is government sponsored and subsidized? It should end, now.

I asked a TSA agent once how they decide whom to send to the "little room" for extra attention. His answer? "Random".

Now considering this is true or even 80% true, can you think of one, single WORSE way to identify a potential threat?

That's like me having 1,000 pennies, and one is extremely valuable, so I toss all the pennies in a bucket and take one out without looking...then throwing the other 999 away. Good luck on it being the "valuable" penny.

Now multiply the 1,000 by 100 - and keep the other number as 1. THAT...supposedly...is the TSA. A "theatre of safety".

It's not about potential threats It's about being able to say "you can't complain if we single you out, we do it completely without any basis at all". It's ass cover protocol. It's plausible deniability for when they get called on their crap. Think about that.

Did I mention they have epaulets? If that doesn't scream authority and competence, then nothing does


Probably got it from standing near the scanners all day. A sad sight: epilepsy + Tourette's == epaulets.

debug: 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.


You couldn't afford to live in a cardboard box at that wage. That's messed up.

I told my boss I'm never flying through Newark again. Worst friggin' hole I've ever visited, and I just saw the airport. It's like flying into Mordor.

bunner: Just Another OC Homeless Guy: LOL! Well, it DOES give me a lot of time to think about stuff. That's one of the problems with our country today: everyone's working so many hours, commuting, worrying about bills, staring in psychic exhaustion at the Tube, listening to Republocrat/Demoblican blowholes telling them what to think, etc. that they never have time to notice that the shirt is being stolen off their backs and that their hands and feet are slowly being tied up.

That's sort of the idea. We call it "the way things are". And we're damned proud to piss our lives up a rope chasing that 5 B/R, 2.5 BA Cape Cod while they do it.


That may be the problem.

I remember a quote from one of Bruce Sterling's books:

"WORKERS OF THE WORLD, RELAX!"

Seriously, we are headed towards a crisis in work and self-identification. Most people identify themselves and stroke their self-worth by what they DO. We are entering a technological period where robotic advances and economy of scale automation will create a situation where there will simply not be enough REQUIRED work to keep people busy. It will make the upsets at the beginnings of the Industrial Revolution look like a picnic.

I'm gonna let you in on a little secret. The only way to kill a leviathan is to starve it. Or are the airlines too big to fail, too?



Of course they are, that's why we bailed them out. Wouldn't want the free market to get in the way of major corporations now would we?

At least the TSA just makes you walk through a detector.

Not only did my doctor make me take off my pants, he also suck his finger up my butt to check my prostate.

Now why my eye doctor did all this, wasn't exactly clear.


My doctor made me get undressed, stand in front of the window, put my thumb on my nose and go na, na, na, na, na
I said Doc, why you making me do this. He said he's pissed off at his neighbor.

Silverstaff: It would be more practical, cheaper, and effective to go back to pre 9/11 screening and security, disband the TSA and let the blueshirts return to their jobs at Mal-Wart and gas stations across the country, step up the Federal Air Marshal and Federal Flight Deck Officer programs, and make it clear to passengers that in the ...


You know what would be really effective?

Give the stewardesses tasers, tell them they'll be fired if they let a drunk person on the plane or serve somebody who's clearly drunk, and not check AT ALL. Somehow, we survive buses and trains without people killing each other. I think we can probably handle it on planes too.

adeist69: Don't worry TSA agents, when the Zombie Apocalypse™ comes and you're bitten I'll be blowing your heads off for potentially becoming a zombie, not in retaliation.

*snert*


Why? TSA agents are immune to becoming zombies.

mark12A: "Controversial 'naked' airport body scanners to be scrapped after failing to receive European approval."

That only applies to the x-ray based scanners. They'll still force you through the millimeter wave based scanners. You get nuked like a Burrito...


Millimeter wave won't fry you.

JWideman: I'm not one to defend the TSA, but that article was heavy on the Prison Planet, and light on the verifiable facts.


Agreed. The outrages of the TSA are well known but I see no reason to think this one was real.

Just Another OC Homeless Guy: If TSA authority is expanded to trains, buses and random automobile traffic stops we got some real trouble brewing, folks. People high up in government with agendas (the party really doesn't matter) are angling to turn them into a Brown Shirt army.


I disagree. I think this is a case of ignorance of history, not malice.

They like having a way around the 4th to hunt for drug couriers, they don't think of the consequences.

DaCaptain19: If the TSA is government sponsored and subsidized? It should end, now.

Unfortunately, random is the right approach. While it's terribly ineffective profiling is worse. If we profile the bad guys will figure out the profile and provide bad guys that don't match it. They can try again and again and see who gets searched.

I think this election should hinge on the JOBS candidate.

Because nothing says leadership like promising a gutted republic that they will have the opportunity to find a row of eggshells to tread lightly on and the the chance to - if they work themselves silly, unquestioningly, and don't ask any questions or think critically - almost have enough money to live on in this land of milk and honey.

JOBS! FOR FREEDOM!

Sure, some of these jobs we've allowed you to have will impinge upon other people's freedoms, but hey, sucks to be them. I seem to recall a time when the American dream clinging to the tattered end of having food, shelter, a few iconic CPU fueled gizmos and to do what you're told for a loaf of bread. If you actually believe that the whole idea is to sh*t where the OTHER guy eats and take HIS loaf, too and that that is success, you deserve to live that way.

"It is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." - Hermann Goering

About a week after the World Trade Center got hit by planes, I said "In 6 months, this is going to be a T-Shirt".

It took about 3 weeks.

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.


ALL while backing up the stereotype that people in the army are unaccountable weeners. No admission that speeding was unwise. It reminded me of how my 16 year old cousin told me a story about getting out of a speeding ticket by fast talking the cop.

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 ...

all you had to say was im an arrogant asshole, did not need such a long example, i would take your word for it


Well, I'm not MythDragon, but ill just go ahead and let everyone know that I'm an arrogant asshole. Glad that's out of the way...

I'm much too ethical to be a tsa employee. I hate people who molest others, and I hate thieves just as much.

So.....where do they get their employees from? Do they hold job fairs at the prisons for the soon to be released?

Theaetetus: shoegaze99: Frothy Panties: So you were speeding, you got busted and you had to be an arrogant cock about it?

In the re-telling, sure, which isn't at all embellished in any way.

In reality, he had to change his underwear afterwards.


Lol...

kindms: zarberg: Carousel Beast: Spanky_McFarksalot: Thankss Obama for your HUGE government expansion that is the TSA...this would never happen if small governement boot strappy republicans were in charge!

/what? If Rmoney can lie so can I

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?

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.


And he never will. Thusly, getting him to care is not ever going to happen.
None of the powers that be will experience going through the gate. That's why we are stuck with it and it will not change and only get worse. It's too far gone now, much like everything else.

Giant Clown Shoe: You sound like an asshole


I have to agree. My experience with US military police was awesome, seriously. Back when I was a 2LT in the Canadian Army Reserve, I flew to Germany one Christmas to visit the parents who were stationed in Lahr. I was picked up at Frankfurt by the base transport and the driver was an American gal who was married to a Canadian stationed in Lahr as well. On the way, she wanted to stop at the US base in Heidelburg for some stuff and as we were leaving it started to snow, really hard. If you've ever been to Germany in that region, you'll know that this is pretty uncommon. At any rate, she had a double whammy... She was from the deep south with no snow driving experience and in a minivan without snow tires. Needless to say, it didn't take all that long for us to spin off the Autobahn into a farmers field, stuck and going nowhere.

At any rate, the German Police called the US base to recover us and they sent out a truck to pick us up. The guy was a German national that didn't speak any English and when we got to Patrick Henry Village he stopped to help a buddy. We did the old pantomime going to a phone trick (pre-cell phone days) and when we got back, he was gone. At this point, all of the village was shut down and we were in the middle of it with no idea where to go and the snow coming down like crazy. So, we managed to find an MP shack and tell them the story. One of the guys gave us a lift the Guest House, arranged a couple of rooms, came back with a basket of fruit to help feed us and then did a run to McDonalds, off base, on his break to get us something other than apples.

The next day, the Canadian base sent a pick-up for us, so we stopped at the MP shack and left a note for the MP and his supervisor to thank them and to highly commend them on being so incredibly nice to us, I don't know if it helped his career, but I hope so. At the Regimental Christmas party for my father's Regiment, afterwards, my driver and I hung out together and got rip roaring drunk to celebrate surviving the German Autobahn.

So, to this day you'll not get me to say a bad thing about the US Military Police. TSA? That's a different story...

shortly after 9-11 a friend of mine (ex-military) was recruited to be a TSA supervisor. He lasted 3 months before he called my boss to see if he could return to his former job. He said he'd never so such a pack of losers in his life as his first training session. No amount of derp surprises me when going through the airport.


/in Shanghai China, I and all my fellow travelers had our bags searched 3 times in order to board the plane but I don't remember any body scan...but the subway stations all had scanners, most of the time they weren't even turned on or the scanner person wasn't even looking at the screen as you shuffled through it.  oddly I felt safer in China most of the time...
