TSA Ruins Everything

TSA Ruins Everything

It’s funny because it’s true

The TSA is terrible. Probably one of the worst organizations we pay for.

Even worse is that collectively we’ve decided to tolerate wandering barefoot through nudey scanners and randomized government sanctioned, blue-gloved molestation.

Evidently, there exist those who still believe putting mascara in a plastic zip-loc bag makes it less terroristy.

Enter College Humor. In one of their latest videos, they challenge the misconception that TSA fulfills its sole raison d’etre — stopping terrorist attacks.

“They didn’t stop the shoe bomber, they didn’t stop the underwear bomber, heck, they probably won’t stop the crop top bomber,” Adam explains.

Really, everything and everyone else protects us from domestic terrorist attacks, except for the TSA.

“The TSA does nothing. They straight up suck at screening.” Truer words were never spoken.

Perhaps presidential candidates should add “strong proponent of defunding the TSA,” to their platforms. Universal loathing of the TSA and hatred of Comcast seem to be two issues that unite all Americans, regardless of partisan leanings.

“Not only does the TSA fails at everything. Yes, everything.”

Um… Editing by the TSA…???

    …seem two be two issues…

    Kemberlee seems to be having a bad day.

    Or…Kemberlee seems two be having a bad day.

      As long as we have our figurative red pens out… “they challenge the misconception that [the?] TSA fulfills it’s sole raison d’etre”.

      As least we didn’t get raison d’être as “raisin debt”. I’ve actually seen that one twice now, and I’m hoping against hope that in each case it was an unfortunate speech-to-text error. Because I don’t think I want to live in a world where someone describes caring for their children as their “raisin debt”.

Make the VA their health provider.

Behavioral and contextual monitoring would be more effective and less intrusive.

    Wait, what, do you mean to say that “profiling” works!?!?!?!

    🙂

      I just came here from read an article about the millions of Syrian refugees in Europe. An article of interviews with them. Pretty much they all hate America, support terrorism as long as it is aimed at Israel, and are wondering why the Europeans haven’t given them any more handouts.

      With people like these running around, I fully support profiling for security checks.

The problem is not the TSA as a concept. If J. Edgar hoover had been put in the creation of the TSA I have no doubt that it would be a more effective, less intrusive organization.

The problem is the politically correct environment it was created in.

    No, that’s made it much worse, but the concept is inherently flawed and it would be bad no matter who ran it. Government is inherently less efficient at anything than the private sector, even at those things that only it can do. That’s why government defense is such a mess; it has to be, but unfortunately it’s a function that only government can do, so we have to put up with it.

I thought that this argument would have been settled when it was revealed that TSA was hiring sex offenders.

And the American flying public could put a stop to this BS in a few days.

Just refuse to fly and tell them why.

Believe me if the Airlines started to lose money, they’d be on the phone to the head of the TSA, their congressmen and their local politicians.

And things would be changed overnight.

It’s Airlines penny pinching that led to the security faults of 9/11 and it will be Airlines that put a stop to your rights being violated just so you can get somewhere fast.

So take a holiday. About a week would do if just everyone would stop flying for that week. It won’t happen for a number of reasons and it doesn’t bode well for any other possible standoffs with Government, but I tried.

Do does your editor.
