TSA Makes It Easier For Terrorists If They Have $85

Ever since 911, millions of Americans have seen their privacy invaded for the name of safety and security.  Unfortunately, that is the world we now live in, thanks to the abundance of technologies.  In response to the terrorist threats to the security of American airline travelers, the federal government created the TSA.

According to the TSA website:

“Following September 11, 2001, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was created to strengthen the security of the nation’s transportation systems and ensure the freedom of movement for people and commerce. Today, TSA secures the nation’s airports and screens all commercial airline passengers and baggage. TSA uses a risk-based strategy and works closely with transportation, law enforcement and intelligence communities to set the standard for excellence in transportation security.”

“TSA has established guiding principles to maintain the security of the traveling public and continuously set the standard for excellence in transportation security.”

Over the past eleven years, TSA Agents have been groping people and stealing their possessions in the name of security.  Millions of us have had shampoo, toothpaste and a myriad of other items confiscated because they were too big or appeared on the infamous list of banned items.  How many of us have had a TSA agent look at virtually nude images of our bodies in the name of security?

After any airline incident, TSA would tighten up their security and ban more items and place more restrictions on what was allowed on the planes.  Passengers were forced to remove their shoes and belts if necessary, empty their pockets, take off their jewelry, jackets, sweaters and coats and pull their laptops out of their cases.  I remember one time seeing TSA agents tell everyone to turn on their laptops to make sure they were a working computer.  My laptop had a lot loaded on it and it took 2-3 minutes to fully boot up, especially when it was trying to connect to the internet and couldn’t in the airport.  Many people in line were frustrated with the added waiting.  And yet, people still manage to smuggle weapons and explosives on board airlines.
