The only way to do justice to this outfit of thieves and perverts is to create another level of Hell.
Yet another TSA screener in Boston was arrested yesterday for child pornography. What a sick system. There have been 13 TSA screeners arrested this year and another 72 TSA screeners arrested in 2011, including eleven sex crimes involving children. TSA can’t prevent crime within their ranks but want us to trust them with airport security.TSA is security theater and a jobs program for unemployable misfits. After sixty billion dollars over eight years they can't cite one success. In two separate GAO tests in 2011, TSA failed to detect weapons 70% of the time while allowing 60% of the freight in the cargo-hold to go unscreened. They confiscate items their website says are allowed but five of their screeners were caught smuggling drugs through security.It’s also pretty creepy that the wholesale sexual assault of groping women and children is being sponsored by a blatantly gay woman. Napolitano claims empathy for the breast cancer victims being felt up at the checkpoint but she conveniently doesn't have to endure it, although she may enjoy watching.Based on the $8.1 Billion TSA budget and 712 million screenings, each one costs $11.38. Since the security fee is only $2.50 the other $8.88 is taxpayer funded whether they fly or not. So those of us who have stopped or heavily reduced our air travel are forced to pay for TSA despite being driven away from flying by them. Since this security circus is free to the airlines, subsidizing the industry with free security to the tune of $4.8B per year, they will continue to accept all of the security antics that TSA dreams up. Currently there is no pressure to make TSA efficient or effective and the bottomless taxpayer pocket will allow TSA to continue to expand ad nauseum. If those who still fly want all of this intrusive security them make them pay for it and leave the rest of us alone.This agency is a national disgrace and the lack of responsible management enables many abuses, crimes and failures to continue to occur. TSA is too broken to be reformed and must be replaced with something that actually works.
Billions of dollars spent, billion passengers harassed and not one single terrorist caught by TSA on any mode of transportation. Lots of guns and knives confiscated from people stupid enough to pack them, but not one single terrorist. Case after case of bottled water and juices and tube after tube of toothpaste confiscated, but not one single terrorist. Hole after hole worn in socks after shoes removed, but not one single terrorist. How many other things will we have to put up with before we start assigning value to TSA's security theater?
