    You gotta read this. A notice from CareerBuilder.com. I bolded the hilarious (expletive deleted) bits:
    Safeguard the American way of life! Participate in and facilitate the abuse of your fellow citizens! Make a world of difference! Go USA!

    Oh, the TSA is making a world of difference alright. Only it's not the world in which sane people want to live.

    Maybe we should see if we can infiltrate DHS? :D

    Pay is $89-137K including 24.22% locality pay. If any TUGgers are successful applicants, I'm sure Lisa would let you sleep on her couch as long you leave the blue gloves at work.

    We have very nice amenities! Including a wonderful brand new screened-in porch. You have to like cats, though.

    I'm surprised that no one has gone underground and done an expose' on TSA yet. It seems like an instant ticket to journalistic fame for an aspiring young journalist, or better yet a retired veteran.

    I really thought this would show up on 20/20 or the like last year, but apparently no one is willing to make the sacrifice of having to actually do that job in exchange.

    Someone did do that as a screener several years ago, then quit & published her account of life as as smurf.

    As long as they're not like Simon's Cat.

    This. A thousand times, this. I've been saying this for months. It would be so easy, too. Where are the bold journalists of yore who used to be brave enough to do such things? This one would be a slam dunk, but apparently we've just become a nation of cowards through and through. I can't see the risks that would keep a journalist from doing this. I'm sure they must be there, but I can't see them.

    Would be right up Barbara Ehrenreich's alley.

    Would be best to position the investigator at a mid to upper level just to see how fricking stupid TSA really is.

    Things like this take time. Maybe someone or maybe more than one person is already doing it. I sure hope so!

    How can anyone say this with a straight face?

    perhaps they're referring to how freely their hands move over the contours of our bodies.

    But yeah, what you said. This is the Orewellian use of words to mean their opposites. As if by words they can mask the deeds.

    And through our belongings.
