I am sure that the job at the TSA isn’t easy, but really!!!! Here is a 98 year old woman who could barely stand, dying, and off for a visit with family for the last time. The TSA must enjoy molesting and abusing the very young and the very old and dying.
The TSA tells you that wheelchairs trigger certain protocols, including pat-downs and possible swabbing for explosives. Then the TSA said that woman had to remove the diaper because it was soiled and was “impeding” the search. If the diaper was the concern, the reason of the search, then the TSA should have done the “dirty” deed themselves. I want them to inspect the poop and urine in the dirty diaper. Then they should give the dying, bomb carrying woman, a clean diaper. Why didn’t they check the wheelchair? It is metal, made of pipes and whatnot that could easily conceal a bomb, but obviously that was not as much fun as inspecting the naked body of a grandmother.
Terrorists all over the world are laughing so hard they are in tears. They have won. I am all for common sense. But that would assume that at some point their brains do actually work sometimes. The terrorists have won. We have become the very thing we are fighting against. America the home of the chicken-sh**s. Where have the brave gone. Al Qaeda doesn’t need to expend energy trying to attack us since as I said earlier they have won, We have our own “government” terrorists doing their work.
I travel a lot to Europe, and each time I go through a full body scanner and still get a pat down. It is as intrusive as can be. It is a joke. They do it in the patriotic duty of protecting us. But who protects us from them.
I wonder if this is the plan of the Teapublicans, small government never works, Teapublicans staffed TSA with idiots with order to do this very crap so that people have less faith in their government. So they would be afraid.
Don’t we all feel safer? Privatizing the TSA as the Teapublicans wanted, still hasn’t resolved the problem of TSA rules that make no sense. The Teapublicans dream of privatizing just everything, but it doesn’t want to be accountable for the basic and fundamental problems with the TSA. The TSA and the Teapublicans enjoy groping.
The TSA and the Teapbulicans and all their followers need to be groped and then removed.
