When you’re right, you’re right. And Jim Rogers – former university chancellor and television station owner – is “dead-on balls accurate” in tweeting on Tuesday that the TSA is “The Poster Child for Government Waste.” I couldn’t have written it better myself:
I was in one of the two lines going through the checkpoint at McCarran. When the line next to me grew shorter I asked one of the TSA employees why we couldn’t move some of our people over to the other line. His response was that I should stay out of his business and if I didn’t I would be arrested. If you have ever had a similar experience at McCarran or any airport, I would like to know about it.
If you examine the qualifications of a TSA agent, you will understand the level of talent and judgment of these people who last year were in a governmental agency that spent and cost 8 billion dollars.
TSA is the poster child for government waste.
WHO SAYS OSAMA BIN LADEN DIDN’T WIN THE WAR? JUST LOOK AT THE FALLOUT FROM HIS SPENDING NO MORE THAN $20,000 TO HIJACK THREE PLANES AND CRASH TWO OF THEM INTO THE WORLD TRADE CENTER ON 9-11-01.
Stay on ‘em, Mr. Rogers! The TSA sucks. Airport security needs to be re-privatized. These government “papers, please” apparatchiks have gotten WAY out of hand.
