'New TSA screening program implemented' - Title Oh, good! Maybe if
we make enough changes to the TSA, we can have a productive government
program. or, I could just not vote Republican.
Just heard someone who read this article say (and who may watch too many movies)
but who still has a valid point: "Whats to keep someone on the
per-approved list from being targeted by any kind of terrorist (large group or
small, foreign or domestic)and having a family member kidnapped to induce the
per-approved flyer to carry or smuggle bomb materials?"
For the past year TSA has insisted that everyone must be subjected to the same
security procedures, whether a child, elderly grandmother or US Senator. Now they are letting the privileged buy their way out of the program.
TSA is saying that wealthy people are "more equal" than the rest of
us. This smacks of racism and government extortion.If you are
âinvitedâ you must pay a fee and give them your financial
information even though TSA has lost the personal information of their employees
and accidentally published their secret procedures. For this you MIGHT get
expedited screening but could be selected for further screening anyway. What a
bargain. If someone can buy their way out of screening then this is
all security theater that is gratuitously harassing passengers. Congress must
demand that TSA adopt sensible and respectful procedures for everyone, not just
Should anybody have to go through such a ridiculous screening process. Whats to
stop them from going into our shopping malls or setting up checkpoints we have
to pass through everyday just so that we can go to work? If this is allowed to
continue we would be powerless to stop their expansion out of the airports
