DHS asks: Do you have “malintent”?
The TSA can't even SPOT the known criminals in their midst, and they'd like us to believe that thirty seconds of conversation with a knuckle-dragger hired from an ad on a pizza box will accomplish more than actual intelligence work?
They just keep piling the crap higher and deeper, don't they?
That implies that they're on top of something. They're underneath & digging deeper.
Considering the mounting Congressional criticism and the current budget environment no rational organization would propose such a lame brained and easily ridiculed idea.
For TSA arrogance trumps reason every time.
BDO: "Do you have 'malintent'?
ME: "Yes, I suppose that from your perspective, I most certainly do. I take every opportunity to speak out against your agencies overreaching security theatrics and will continue to do so to all of my friends, family, co-workers, and elected officials until such time that every slimy, blue-shirted one of you is out on the streetcorners holding up signs saying: WILL GROPE FOR FOOD!! --- Any more dumb-(expletive deleted) questions for me, young man [lady]?"
Great comment! You should leave at original: DHS Asks Do You Have Malintent
Got this as a joke email this morning - more truth to it than most people realize unfortunately:
Airport Screening Results January 2012
January Statistics On Airport Screening From The Department Of Homeland Security:
Yes, a good one. I posted it at the Cogblog last year:
Malintent? No, but I would be happy to share a little methane with you.
I'd say right now they're about half way to China.
TSA operations are a fusion of three senses: Arrogance, Insolence, Nonsense.
Yes, in the worl of TSA Security Theatre, let's look to Hollywood fantasy for technological innovation. Imagine what would happen to a local sheriff if they told their constituents they were going to blow tax dollars on this kind of nonsense.
Sure, every time TSA employees find an illegal alien, someone with a stash of weed, deadbeat dad, etc. they'll just turn them over to law enforcement. What a convenient way to set up a dragnet and get around all that pesky Probable Cause stuff.
Had a conversation this afternoon with the gal who does my hair about the TSA. Told me she doesn't mind going through the scanner. Doesn't bother her a bit because it's "for our safety" BUT what did bother her was on her recent trip to Las Vegas the TSA agent in Seattle discovered her large container of perfume she forgot to put in her checked baggage. Told her he'd have to take it. She begged and pleaded with him and he let her take it. But on the way home the TSA agent in Las Vegas confiscated it - said she forgot to pack it again. I asked her what he did with her "dangerous" perfume. Well, he dropped it into the garbage can. I said - you mean the one he was standing next to, the one all the other passengers walked past? I said - you stand there in a scanner getting radiated and viewed naked having your Constitutional rights violated but you're mad because they took a damn bottle of perfume? And you think anything they are doing is making you safer? I felt like I was talking to a brick wall. Some people will just never "get it".
Yep. They will never get it. "Take my rights, irradiate me, feel me up, treat me like (expletive deleted), but whatever you do don't hit me in the pocketbook!"
People bitch more about the lack of peanuts and pretzels on the plane than they do about having their rights violated. Is it any wonder I say they're getting exactly what they deserve?
The problem with that (and yes I see the irony of my statement) is their compliancy and ignorance drags you and me down with them.
I know. But at least I can enjoy seeing them get their comeuppance.
I didn't get my pre-departure beverage, what kind of compensation should I ask for?
This is an outrage!
