2012 is an Election Year: Are We Going to Reform the TSA?

From Vanity Fair:


As you stand in endless lines this holiday season, here’s a comforting thought: all those security measures accomplish nothing, at enormous cost. That’s the conclusion of Charles C. Mann, who put the T.S.A. to the test with the help of one of America’s top security experts.


The article demonstrates the TSA accomplishes nothing. And, it doesn't even talk about how it is diminishing our constitutionally-protected rights.

It is long past time to disband the TSA and turn it back over to private contractors. Far less cost and probably better security.

Instead, "Infowars" is reporting that Congress is going expand the non-airport activities of the TSA. Even though I have written them all once, I'm going to contact my Congressional delegation again about this ridiculous expansion of a ridiculous agency. And, I'm going to start looking for candidates that promise to put a stop to this nonsense.

  1. Agreed on this, but citing Infowars is bad practice, it's a conspiracy site that publishes more fiction than Tor Books.

  2. @ Dec. 31. Your point is well taken. However, the same bill has been pointed out by several "mainstream" sites. I'm confident that, in this case, Infowars is correct as to the content of the bill.

    Thanks for the comment.
