People hate the TSA. I mean, I get it. They will both go through your junk and get all up in your junk. They will search your bags, and they’ll check your sack. They will invade your privacy, as well as your actual privates.
I’m talking about your genitalia here, people.
The TSA has been the target of a lot of hate for many years now, mostly due to their weird practices, their determination to be annoying, and their implementation of body scanners that display all yo’ goodies. Now, the TSA has gone a step further. In the wake of a TSA agent being convicted of stealing over $800,000, new reports are coming in stating that theft is more the mainstay than the exception. What? People steal?!
One TSA agent admitted that theft became like an addiction for him. He would steal anything he wanted. The accountability cameras were often broken, and this dude would walk out with Nintendo Wiis in his hand. And to add insult to injury, TSA managers don’t search the agents’ bags. Why would they? It’s like Toys R Us up in the airport. Free pickings.
To be honest, I couldn’t care less if a TSA agent pats me down, or if some woman sees my junk through a computerized scanner. However, if someone steals my iPod, I swear to you this: I will come down on you like the hand of Zeus. I will write harshly-worded emails. I will construct my sentences in a manner that conveys pointed sarcasm and, dare I say, malice.
You steal my crap, and I’ll speak to you maliciously.
I’ve never been strictly anti-TSA, but now I am. Stealing is bad. Pat downs are just good, wholesome fun. And I’m willing to put up with a lot if it keeps me safe, except it appears as though the TSA is just letting anybody with a loaded gun get on a plane. A man didn’t realize he had a gun packed in his bag when he left for his flight, and neither apparently did the TSA. The gun went through the first leg of his flight with no problems.
A 5 oz. bottle of hair gel? Sorry, we’re throwing this away. You could be a terrorist.
A .38 caliber loaded gun? Enjoy your flight, sir.
Question: What do you make of the TSA?
