    Epic Fail!

    As a nation, as a culture and as a community, this is a textbook example of FAILURE.

    OK, the guy was in extremis and had to make landfall somewhere. Why penalize him for the failure of the airports "TSA Approved" security plan?

    Shouldn't he be rewarded for exposing this problem?

    That's what I think. If you have to cross the rail road tracks to get to the Hospital Emergency Room, should you simply die on the "correct" side of the tracks?

    Should the Jet Skier die of exposure before entering the airport in search of aid?

    This is a pattern, and I can only call it a collective


    for the United States.

    We should be better than this, but apparently we're not.

    It's all about safety folks-just don't ask who's safety.

    I think we can determine whose safety, take a look at my post in "What's On Your Mind" for a clue the size of a 4x4.

    Elizabeth is right here. What is wrong with us that the immediate reaction to someone just trying to save his life is that we want to throw him in jail for breaking some rule.

    This NYC. He's a revenue source, not a victim.

    He should be thankful he didn't have any improperly recycled materials in his possession when he was busted.

    That part of the article really stuck out like a sore thumb -- at what part of an incident does maritime law cease to apply? Or does it even apply in waters within U.S. jurisdiction? His vessel sunk. They were required to assist him. Period. Stop. End of sentence.

    Hopefully he'll get a lawyer and perform a double orchidectomy on some of these asstards. Though given they're working at an airport, finding their stones (microscopic pebbles) might take some effort.

    Why would maritime law apply when the TSA suspend/ignore/defy every other law in existence to suit their whim?

    TSA: Why Get Your Balls Groped When You Can Just Row Up With A Warhead?

    The 58,401 Stooges (aka TSA employees) are so busy pretending to administer security that they fail to actually do it. In New York, a jet-skier, stranded in Jamaica Bay, swam to shore and easily breached all the supposed security they have between the Bay and the terminal.

    Oh, the guy is guilty all right...guilty as sin...of once again embarrassing the black-hearted agencies (DHS/TSA) that are ostensibly protecting us from the scawey tewowwists!

    Oh, wait...that isn't a crime, is it? </rhetorical question>
