I am not quite sure why everyone is upset at TSA, the Touch Someone Always . I see no problem with the pat downs. If I ever feel lonely, I can just wander down to the airport and make a new friend .
And the TSA is better than the IRS. Sure the TSA may strip search you, but they are up front about it. And it is a quick and easy process. When the IRS strip searches you, known as an audit, not only do they take off your financial clothes, the audit lasts at least a year and there is a good chance of getting screwed.
And I feel sorry for the TSA agents. 66 percent of Americans are overweight. So the odds are you won’t get to pat down some hot babe. Chances are that you will have to pat down some fatty to find the hidden bomb in roles of fat flesh hanging down.
And you are not getting rich working for TSA. The starting salary is only $24.000 plus the opportunity of dealing with pissed off travelers. But a benefit is you get to stand next to an x-ray machine all day. Think of what that little job perk is doing to your junk.
And when was the last time you saw a TSA agent smile. Not only do you get to stand on your feet all day and smell people’s sweaty socks, but now you get to pat down fat people. Quick – where can I sign up?
And let’s face it. In some professions, a 99 percent rate is not acceptable. Imagine an airline pilot that made 99% of his landings, a mailman that delivers 99 percent of the mail, a surgeon that saves 99 percent of his patients, a TSA checkpoint that is 99 percent correct.
The TSA has NO room for error. If one terrorist slips through, if one airplane gets bombed, you know what all the pundits will say. “See what happens when you put the government in charge of security? “
And the relatives of the victims who went down on the plane, may complain about being searched now, but they will be quick to find a lawyer when something bad happens and they will be quick to sue the TSA. Right after they attend the funerals of their relatives, who died, just because someone didn’t want his “junk touched”.
Oh grow up America. Quit worrying about your junk being touched and think of the bigger picture. The terrorists are happy you are complaining. If you win and the TSA has to back off, you have just scored a victory for the terrorists, you have just made their life easier.
You do remember the terrorists don’t you. You know those guys whose hobby is blowing up things, like the World Trade Center and the Pentagon?
