    and

    You'd never think the above if you asked the TSA.

    I don't think the number of congresscritters is yet large enough to stand up and take positive action against TSA. I sure part of it is protecting their chair in congress. It will take people like us, those who continue to travel, and others interested in this issue to keep awareness of how corrupt and anti-American TSA really is. Nothing is easy so expect a lot of effort to keep the pressure on.

    I tend to agree with you, RB. However, the numbers have gone from zero speaking out to a not-insubstantial number and they will continue to grow. The on-going ineptness of the TSA assures that.

    Agree the numbers are growing but not yet to the point being self sustaining. Consider a fire, we have some smoke and embers but no flame.

    I saw a comment at "the other place" that earlier in October both candidates discussed their position on TSA which was suppose to be reported in USA Today. I couldn't find it. It was said Romney wants to dismantle TSA as part of his budget-cutting proposal citing the ineffectiveness of a bloated agency with no oversight, and drastically reduce costs and size by sending to the private sector. Obama was business as usual with current TSA...of course I recognize rhetoric and empty promises but still, glimmer of hope if Romney is elected?
    I tried searching for the article and had no luck.

    I actually see a faint glimmer of hope, given that aviation security is more reasonable in most of the world and that The Obamination apparently doesn't know where he is at any given point in time:




    One way we get Romney, who might dismantle TSA. The other way we get The Obamination, who's lost.

    By 2014, there won't be money for nonsense like this. Unfortunately, there won't be money for anything else either.

    Beans. Bullets. Band-Aids. Those should be your primary purchases, not airline tickets.
