Went through the airport and through TSA with this in my jacket pocket on Thursday. My jacket went through the X-ray machine. Oops.

That could have created quite a stir.

Their not getting paid so they don't care. I'm sure more items than we know are getting past the screeners these days.

Last I read TSA failure rate to catch weapons and explosives was 95%. Near 100% useless. This was in 2015 so it had nothing to do with not getting paid. There are endless reports over the years, here's one of many. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...hrough-n367851

Airport security should have never been federalized. The airline industry has far more incentive to keep their passengers safe than low IQ federal employees.

Having done quite a bit of traveling last year... most TSA employees I observed were standing around doing nothing, and the ones working the detectors didn't appear that they could find their own ass with both hands.

Unhappy Aww Come On...........

Sure they missed that bullet. They were busy frisking your grandmother and your little girl. Maybe even a nice body cavity search!!

My best/worst experience with TSA came when my son was leaving Atlanta airport for deployment to Iraq. He was in full uniform. They made him take off his boots, get x-rayed and patted down. Right after he went through this dehumanizing experience, two Muslims stepped up to be "checked". They were in robes and full head gear. As they stepped up, the TSA agents all stepped back from the security equipment, raised their arms to shoulder height and waved the "Non-threatening" Islamists through the security area. No shoe removal, no x-rays, no pat down. Hell, not even a second glance!! Obviously, the TSA agents did not wish to be accused of racial profiling!

But by God they sure as hell checked out the U.S. Army Infantryman who had sworn to give his life to protect our freedom!!! I have NO USE for the TSA at all. My grandmothers are both dead, so they don't need frisking. If they want to try to pad down my daughter, well, I'll be happy to pat the agent down with a 2 x 4!!! That's called "Daddy Security"!! The agent ain't gonna pass. Pass out maybe, but not pass!!!

I'm feel sorry for your son, I've been a free man all my life because of the military.

I see you're in Georgia. Snowtao lives there, usually under guard and drone surveillance. If she ever reads your post, be prepared for the learning experience of your life!

She was an editor, and you'll get a post that is footnoted, source(s) provided, spell checked and has not only had your post copied, but she has corrected all your grammatical errors and historical mistakes.
