Who in their right mind would apply for a position with the TSA? Honestly? This is the biggest joke of a security agency that has ever existed. Paul Blart: Mall Cop, was more capable. And he was a fictional character in a movie.
I’m not saying these people aren’t nice. I think the individuals welcoming us into the screening areas, and 90 percent of the agents that I have spoken with are decent people. However, considering the other 10 percent, and the charge that all 100 percent have been hired to keep: Securing our…humanity? Sorry. Nope. Not buying it.
Let’s consider this fine example in the video:
Did that TSA agent just swab that guys Starbucks? That he bought in the terminal? She most certainly did? And the water from the water fountain that this woman had put into her reusable water bottle? Yes. Yes, the TSA did. When the agent was asked why this was necessary, she explained that they had to randomly test for explosive materials. This, of course, after the airport patrons were seen drinking their beverages, aka, potential explosive materials.
This crap is out of control. I understand the theory behind it. The random nature would deter criminals from crossing that line…but c’mon. Are they really so dense to see a dude buy something from Starbucks and then need to swab it? And what if something is on those swabs, pre-swabbing. Might they consider the individual holding their beverage at an arm’s length?
They’re paid not to trust us. We naturally don’t trust them. We need to all start opting out of the machine screenings, and go straight for the pat-downs.
