    • Morons on parade: TSA steals “grenade-shaped” perfume bottle - 18 Mar 2014
      posted in Big Gov & Columns & Politics & Govt & TSA News

      I can’t keep up with all these stories. They come too fast and furious, one more idiotic than the next. Although there is sometimes method to the TSA’s madness, as in this case where the employees clearly wanted to steal somebody’s expensive perfume.

    • Congress should abolish the TSA — it’s time to privatize airport screening - 02 Dec 2013
      posted in Big Gov & Civil Liberties & Life & Police State & Surveillance & Tech & Terrorism & The Constitution

      A government study that finds a program doesn’t work and proposes to cut it is almost as rare as pigs that fly. But a new Government Accountability Office study on aviation does just that: it proposes chopping the Transportation Security Administration’s SPOT security program because it finds no evidence that it could stop airline terrorists. The GAO […]

    • Government Shutdown: An Oxymoron for Real Morons - 26 Sep 2013
      posted in Big Gov & Columns

      I did a Google search for this phrase: “government shutdown.” I got 5.6 million hits. The one at the top of the list was from The Washington Post. It began with this: If the House and Senate can’t agree on a government funding bill by Sept. 30, the federal government will shut down. And, right […]

    • If you love the TSA, watch this - 05 Mar 2013
      posted in Civil Liberties & Columns & TSA News & Videos

      It happened again. At a time when the federal agency assigned to protect America’s transportation systems can least afford it, there was another dust-up involving a young passenger — this time to Lucy Forck, a three-year-old with spina bifida flying to Disney World with her family. When the little girl in a wheelchair is pulled […]

      posted in Civil Liberties & Columns & Police State & Privacy & Terrorism

      When the Minnesota Vikings faced off against the Green Bay Packers last weekend in Minneapolis, the big story wasn’t that the Vikings defeated the Pack to secure a wildcard berth. It was, strangely, the TSA. That’s right, the agency assigned to protect America’s transportation systems was patrolling the Metrodome. Nathan Hansen, a North St. Paul, […]

    • Are airlines responsible for America’s TSA disaster? - 13 Dec 2012
      posted in Bureaucracy & Terrorism

      One of the more interesting reactions to last week’s post arguing that the TSA as we know it is dead came from a publicist for one of the airline trade associations. In a polite but insistent email, he claimed I’d misunderstood the congressional testimony by one of his executives. The airline industry rep was criticizing […]

    • It’s Time to Overhaul the Transportation Security Administration - 20 Nov 2012
      posted in Big Gov & Bureaucracy & Civil Liberties & Columns

      “The TSA has grown into a top-heavy, unmanageable agency, evidenced by its 400% increase in workforce since its founding. The agency’s flaws are not the fault of TSA employees working everyday on the front lines, but instead that of a bloated leadership structure in Washington, DC. When attempting to conduct oversight, instead of cooperation from […]
