I want to take a step back for a moment, and explain my view on the TSA and NSA, and where I think it’s all heading. First, a few observations I think we can all agree on.
1. The TSA is a facade. They force travelers to feel like criminals, and make them raise their hands above their heads like a perp in a radiation scanner. They present the “choice” of a “pat” down by the local TSA handyman/woman as an alternative, which wraps up nicely the packaged illusion of security. We all know deep down inside that if a motivated and determined person wanted to kill one or many people, they could very well accomplish the goal. The recent misguided attack at LAX can be used as evidence. I’ll say it again as I said it before; violence is never the answer. Violence will only increase the power of the police state.
