I’d like to take just a moment to say something really nice about the TSA, as I’ve spent the past week and a half. Given their job, I’d like to say something really nice in support of them and their hard work, and their efforts to keep America safe.
Except I can’t.
Truly, they are morons.
In Dulles, they wanted me to remove my sweatshirt because “it’s bulky”. I wasn’t wearing a T-shirt, so when I started to pull it off, they could see they’d be looking at my flesh. And I ain’t 22 with a 6pack any more.
They started to panic when they realized that showing my naked upper body might cause a riot in the secure area, so they told me they’d pat me down instead.
Umm…What the F**K are these very expensive portals used for? They’re supposed to see through my 29.00 sweatshirt and tell these insipid sheep what’s beneath my clothes. If they can tell I’m wearing a leather belt with no buckle, can see how much money is in my wallet, then for hell’s sake, why can’t they see that I’m not carrying a gun!!??
