Corvus: It's like yelling at the cashier at McDonalds because you don't like their corporate policy.


Oh, and for the record I don't yell at McDonalds cashiers because I don't like their corporate policy. I yell at them when they're rude and/or incompetent.

Likewise I flip off TSA goons when they're surly and expect me to lick their jackboots.

clyph: Corvus: I am sorry why do people like you think TSA agents are the people who control the operation. It's like yelling at the cashier at McDonalds because you don't like their corporate policy. It really makes no sense.

In other words, they're only following orders.

Check your history and let me know how that's worked as a defense in the past.


You are comparing them to Nazis. Serious you sound like a crazy person. This is my point. They are checking luggage and patting people down they are not gassing Jews, gays and gypsies!! That's a LOT farking different.

You are a nut if you think those things are comparable.

Headso: Corvus: You really believe an agents experience (oh and like I said NON-TSA USA screener use the same screening methods) bubbles up to the top level who are government top level appointees and politicians who make the policy?

yes I believe dealing with employee morale is an issue important to high level managers. You could probably easily find mentions of it among people involved with the TSA.


High level mangers don't set TSA policy. That is my point.

Foundling: Chick-Fil-A's interpretation of the bible:

"Thou shall not kill", an explicit commandment, isn't to be taken seriously.


Err, no, actually. That's a mistranslation. It should be rendered into modern-day English as "Do not murder."

So you believe they are very competent about management structure? Because most places I have worked it doesn't? Most work places I know most bad news never funnels past middle management. That is what middle management usually exists for. A one wave valve for shiat.

So do you believe (I don't want to put words in your mouth):

A) many people have problems with the TSA?
B) the information gets fed back up.

If both of those are true (if you believe them to be true) why has nothing already been done about it?

If people are complaining and they care like you said they do, why are they not doing anything about it? It seems to me A or B is not true or both is not true.

titwrench: Corvus: titwrench: Is this how you react to someone that isn't sure about something in real life? You sir are a cock and according to your profile you are in my city. Would you care to meet so you can speak to me that way to my face?

Not at all. It's how I react to people who are to lazy in life to check facts on their own. And question others about their facts without ever checking or themselves.

So you solution is through violence to see if someone is right or wrong? You believe beating people up because they do what you ask them to and show they were right?

I didn't threaten violence, you inferred it, I simply called you out for being a shiat talker. If I were in front of you you would not speak to me that way.


ITG taken to the next level: trying to meet people in real life to intimidate them about punctuation grievances. This is where LOL can be properly used.

Not all the Nazis personally killed Jews and Gypsies. Some just stood around at trains stations and airports, said "Papiere, Bitte" a lot, and otherwise harassed and intimidated law-abiding travellers. They were still Nazis.

If it talks like a Nazi and dresses like a Nazi, it's close enough for me to call it a Nazi.

Except there have been changes to TSA policies after complaints from passengers so your contention there is false. You could also google tsa employee morale and find that it was a topic being discussed and dealt with by the head of homeland security.

I used to take that same can to high school all the time by absentmindedly neglecting to remove it from my jacket^^^%%

You left out an "s" on "things."

You should keep quotes inside the punctuation on "things".

No you don't:

Rule 1

Periods and commas always go inside quotation marks, even inside single quotes.

Citation please.




MLA says so. It's the generally-accepted standard for American English.

It's largely a difference between British and American English, but the British or "logical" style seems to be taking over slowly.

So they have been making meaningful changes under the TSA? I have not heard of them. All I hear in this threads is how horrible they are and they don't make meaningful changes.

Which changes are you referring to that you believe are meaningful and have improved things for people?

I find the British way to be more logical also. To me the punctuation should go with the quote only if it is part of the quote.

Yes, I am.

The Nazis didn't start out killing Jews on day one. They worked up to it over time. One of their first steps was controlling internal and international travel.

If you're harassing your fellow citizens and treating them like criminals for having the audacity to move around the country, then yes, you are a motherfarking bootlicking Nazi collaborator.

You mean like the when you go into Disneyland and they check your bags? Or to a concert or a football game? Those people are all Nazis too right?

Because they also "treat you like criminals" at least how you are defining it.

You are aware before the TSA screening they checked your bags too?

serial_crusher: mat catastrophe: Why does a Chick-Fil-A exec own a security checkpoint at the Atlanta airport?

Get your eyes fixed. TFA mentions "the security checkpoint" singularly.
The use of "one of which" in this case clearly refers to ownership of one of the two hours, or one of the three arrests.

Because time is money, and the police are for sale, both meanings are equally plausible.


Oh, sheesh. I will schedule an appointment with my audiologist, post haste.

Funny I fly airplanes some through TSA and I have never been groped.

Then if you never have been irradiated you have NEVER flown because you are irradiated EVERYTIME you fly on a plane.

I have had pat downs. I have had pat downs BEFORE TSA at airports and going to concerts and going to football games. I and most people don't wig out about those.

You're a good little sheep. Say BAAAH and lick some more boots.

I've had private security try and pat me down. I usually just say NO and stare them down... and they invariably back off and let me past their little wannabe checkpoint. A rent-a-thug has no legal authority to touch you, let alone search you, you if you don't consent to it.

kitsuneymg: In prose, an ellipsis can be used to end a sentence to indicate someone trailing off and dropping their thought. A good example would be a line from Star Wars: " I sense something. A presence I've not felt since..." As you can see, Vadar drops his thought, leaving it incomplete. Typically, this ellipsis functions like a period, having no space before it and one after it.

In technical writing, an ellipsis is used only to indicate elided words from a quote. Each dot must have a space between them and a space on either side unless followed by punctuation. It is permissible to use your font's ellipsis character instead. If an ellipsis is used to end a sentence, the final period must be there as well.

Anyway, the original quoted text is badly formed. I just had to chime in to counter your assertion that ellipses cannot end sentences.


Too bad you failed. The example you gave, in addition to the usage you are describing, concern sentence fragments and incomplete thoughts, not full sentences.

I love the american "but it didn't happen to me so it doesn't happen" argument.

All enforcement, all harassment by people with various degrees of power via government, is ultimately selective. What's most funny is that when something does happen to these people that typically don't get selected, suddenly it's a news story. Like this one.

The people who things don't happen to don't seem to want to take up the challenge of changing their appearance or expressing views or doing anything that takes them out that comfortable area in the center of the bell curve. That area where they are least likely to be selected. They just go along to get along and submissive to ever increasing intrusion. Which of course is why they are spared most of it. They are already well conditioned and not someone who has to be shown who is boss.

All someone needs to do is be little less than totally compliant... and then something can happen. Like it did to this guy: http://hamptonroads.com/2012/10/extsa-agent-pleads-guilty-theft-passen gers-cash Or even congressmen who have opposed the TSA.

BTW, Remember as tyranny grows, government builds new enforcement organizations that don't have traditional loyalties and codes.

flux: ginandbacon: Ya know? I think that "forgetting" about your gun is a pretty good sign that you are either lying to law enforcement or that you seriously shouldn't own a gun.

Every firearm owner (excepting those with a collection so large it becomes hard to remember the list itself) should be able to state, off the top of his or her head, the location and condition-of-readiness of every firearm they own.


Which these people likely did as soon as they went "oh shiat...it's still on my hip".

From the vast majority of the posters this thread it's apparent that practically none of you carry regularly. If you decide to do so one of the first things you do is get a comfortable holster for it. Comfortable so that it's not constantly jabbing you or causing some other irritation and, as such, isn't a constant focus of your attention.

The thing with these folks most likely is that taking their pistol with them when they leave the house is no different than making sure you have your keys, wallet and cellphone...it's just one of those items they make sure they have. And unless you've never forgotten you were carrying keys or a wallet or cellphone then you probably don't have real reason to criticize. What's worse is that in all three of these cases, the pistol was in a bag. Not noticing it's on your hip would be harder to do...not being a panicky paranoid that it's in a bag you're carrying is rather easy if you treat it like other such famously banned items like multitools, trimmer scissors and wine corks.

Some folks simply don't live in a state of perpetual fear over an inanimate object because it's just a hunk of metal that performs a function when needed.

/yeah I know...hard for many of you to wrap your head around
