Hooray for TSA! I'm Sooooo much SAFER with you guys around!
Flew from BWI to FL this Xmas, had joyous encounters with my friends from TSA. Happy, smiling unWhites searching through my baggage for contraband such as toothpaste, mouthwash or athlete's foot creme. Happy, and smilingly the TSA grunts examined my sneakers for traces of Racism ... er, I mean Saltpetre or Ammonium Chloride. Sorry to disappoint you guys, O Lovable TSA!
No government "agency" so smacks of G. W. Bush idiocy and paranoia as TSA. It IS starting to seem like a long time ago when a visit to the airport, to start a 3 or 4 part journey to another country, was an exciting and enjoyable event. And not so long ago Airline companies were bragging about the speed and efficiency with which they whisked their passengers through the nominal "security" process onto the waiting high-performance passenger jets from Boeing and MacDouglass.
Even in year 1997 I had a wonderful journey to Korea and back, passing through Tokyo, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Honolulu. In no airport did I ever wait more than 10 minutes in a security line, nor have any airport maggot rifle through my stuff. It would make a useful calculation to tabulate just how much time and $$ is wasted each ... MINUTE! ... now in the airline business to the useless hunt for phony "terrorists." CERTAINLY there must be some element of the Airline industry that has piszed-off the Zionazis enough to put the whole industry at risk.
I spent 52 and a half agonizing minutes, starting at 0600, slogging through my TSA line in a major Florida airport, to return from Xmas vacation. It sukked. The same flight in 1997 would have cost me, at most, a five-minute wait for a thoroughly sufficient metal-detection search in the pre-Govt-blew-up-the-buildings-in-2001 era.
Can we say it many more times? Not a single terrorist (ha!) has been caught or detected in the post-911 airport lockdown. That's because 911 was a Govt Inside Job all the way, and the War on Terrah is pure Bulloney. And the TSA props a TV set in each airport, with every six minutes, a big unWhite TSA supervisor explaining, in a deadpan, how the TSA will provide you with "World Class security and service." How extremely depressing and angering is the Bush-the-Lesser years. Vomit! Puke!
