By now everyone is aware of the mischief, madness, and mayhem perpetrated by the TSA on the public who chose, or out of necessity have to use, air travel to get from point A to point B. Scanning which leaves little, if anything, to the imagination, or pseudo-professional physical searches of ones person, leaving no external area untouched.
Any attempt at even suggesting to the powers that be, there are better ways of arriving at a more secure state of being of our aircraft prior to take off, are willfully ignored. Recognizing and or acknowledging the catalyst behind the threat (Which would be Islam, for those who can’t or refuse to deal with the reality and fact of the matter.) along with instituting some form of profiling, would be a relatively simple and cheap “solution”. Or they could literally copy the measures used quite successfully by the Israelis. This might cost a few more bucks than profiling and such, but they have not had any major problems, perhaps the Israelis know what they are doing.
No, the asshats at TSA can not be bothered with something which might not only work, but would enhance their professionalism and in doing so perhaps improve their image (both to the public and other agencies/”real” LEOs). They would, instead, prefer to be video voyeurs, or cop-a-feel rent-a-cops. So in light of their seeming dedication in lowering their standards of professionalism, civility, and courtesy toward the very people who happen to be the ones who provide their paychecks (let alone their whole departments funding), I have found the perfect song.
It asks a question which I am sure they will be asking all you lucky frequent fliers out there, should you be fortunate enough to be subject to their video or groping pleasure, if not now, than in the very near future. After all, how else are they going to know if you are “comfortable” with having explosives or some other potentially dangerous device(s) parked in your lower colon?
Ladies and gents I give you the new TSA “Screener’s Anthem”
