    apparently TSA doesn't drug test their workers or even monitor them for aberrant behavior.

    If he were a dog, he'd spend his day chasing his tail.

    I'd bet on chasing parked cars. And "catching" them at full speed.

    At least the dog is trainable, TSA has proven it can't be trained.

    To bad the same method for getting rid of crazy dogs, isn't how we could do the same for all of TSA.

    It looks to me as if he has an upper motor neuron disease, which creates aberrant body motion.

    This, of course, could be the result of too much drug use....

    Hey Barbell, I thought the same thing - it looks neurological. As to the cause, well who knows. :confused:

    Yeah, so I think we should cut this guy some slack.

    The guy, maybe - but not the agency who thinks he's capable of handling baggage in which they're supposedly looking for bombs...

    While unprofessional, I am certain that this individual was simply thinkin gof music and "sorta dancing".

    Since he works for an unprofessional agency I see no problem with his behavior. It is the agency that needs to be locked up starting with Pistole.

    edit to add:

    Rugape, I find your signature line a bit interesting. TSA attempts to use fear as a reason for most of its procedures. How do you reconcile your signature with being in TSA using fear as a tactic of control?

    still can't find links to the videos you are discussing... not in the first post or any others, not in this discussion or any other discussions of videos.

    ???

    i've "allowed" all scripts to "run" to no avail and run the curser all over trying to find an invisible link... nada

    ???

    It's not a link, the script is embedded in the post, and it's even embedded in your quote of Fisher1949's post. If you do a right-click on the YouTube control, there is also an option to watch it on YouTube.

    It sounds as though you have something horribly outdated or misconfigured.

    eeek! there is nothing there! right-click reveals nothing either. <sigh>. recently "up-dated", have no idea how to configure. this computer is a piece of ____ <expletive> toshiba that ran like crap after the first month or less of operation. defragging, etal gains nada... it's still slower than a retaliatory bag check. i suppose it must be replaced. i'v had it with pc, nothing but trouble! are they all designed to fail?? i've taken to keeping a book nearby... it takes SO long to load pages, I can read entire chapters while waiting for the computer.

    <sigh>

    (installed adblock software in desperate attempt to speed up the loading of pages... figured they were getting bogged down with all the %$&# advertising)

    My signature line is pretty much the way I feel. While I agre with you that politicians, and muckety mucks the world over use fear as a leverage against people, I perform my job in a professional manner while trying to accomplish the stated mission of the organization while helping folks as much as I can along the way. I disagree with the way some things are phrased in some of our information and press, I think that the stated mission is a good one, and deserves the best I can give. I do not use fear to further that mission, quite the opposite, I try to present a positive and professional image to each person I come into contact with for both the organization and myself. Not all that hard if you believe in the mission and goals, even if you disagree with some of the things the organization does. There are people out there that wish to do the US and her people harm, in many ways, I disagree with many folks that simply stating the obvious is not necessarily fearmongering. If you follow the SOP, and perform your duties professionally, there should be no fear involved in the vast majority of situations I have encountered at TSA. The TSOs should be squared enough to work to communicate, resolve and get the person on their way - not escalate the situation to make things more difficult. I know that is not always the case, and wish I could change that, but knowing what your limitations are is a virtue. I focus on making each interaction with folks as painless as possible, and get them through with a minimum of hassle. I have an ancillary focus by bloggin and trying to get that message out to as many folks in and out of the organization as possible.

    What exactly is TSA's stated mission?

    More to the point, how do you reconcile that .sig line with fear being the only reason you have a job today?

    After all, if not for fear, the TSA wouldn't even exist - and there would be 50,000 thieves, perverts, and delusional asshats standing out on street corners holding signs, "WILL GROPE FOR FOOD."

    Ah. Back to the "just following orders" argument. Horseshit.
