    It's called American taxpayers who pay for this whole charlie foxtrot farce that provides neither safety nor security. Heck even my work uniforms with extensive embroidery (35-40% coverage) only costs $30.

    Remember the $500 hammers and the "Golden Fleece Awards" the one Senator used to announce for Federal waste?

    Yeah don't get me started on that subject as I can open a nasty can of worms on that. That's without even touching Medicare & Medicaid fraud/abuse.

    They are homo sapiens, but they are not people in the civilized sense of the word.

    They are people, but people who diminish themselves with every crotch and butt they rub. In the years to come, and even now, there will be a well deserved stigma attached to ever having been a TSA clerk.

    I'm not too sure about the sapiens part of that nomenclature on behalf of the TSA, either. "Sentience," probably. "Sapience?" Not so much.

    UPDATE:
    After seniors endure extreme TSA pat-downs, feds make amends for missing cash.

    Of course no smurf arrested or apology issued, just a check in the mail. The thefts are just business as usual for TSA.

    Agreed. The only thing that could have made this better would be if they had found the thief and taken proper steps to prosecute them.

    If a TSA employee they wouldn't know it they resigned or were fired.

    Yes. It's too bad the TSA is utterly incapable of identifying the thieves and terrorists in its own ranks.

    The original amount? No interest?:p

    What, you're expecting the TSA to not only do the "right thing," but to do the "ethically correct thing?"

    They'd have to hire at least one person who knew what "ethics," "morals," and "honor" are before that kind of action could even begin to be "expected."

    What you could do with one person would take TSA a couple of thousand.

    I did say "at least one person who knew what 'ethics,' 'morals,' and 'honor' are..."

    At the moment they have zero.

    Yes, but for TSA the issue is impossible to overcome. They don't have one person meeting these qualifications and even if they did one would not be enough.

    Exactly my point. The first step would be for the TSA to hire at least one person who knew what "ethics," "morals," and "honor" are.

    The problem is that nobody with such knowledge would ever accept a job "working" for the TSA.
