    The Pedosmurfs will just wave their fake badges and claim federal exemption from local health codes.

    I don't think I'd have any trouble giving the TSA the sample they want.

    As long as they don't mind it passing through my kidneys first, and retrieving the sample from their shoes, anyway...

  3. That's how I've heard they respond to anybody who mentions OSHA in any way, too. We all know they'll never provide anybody with an MSDS sheet for anything. But I do think we need to be bringing to light the fact that the TSA's procedures (or lack thereof, in this case) have truly turned checkpoint areas into biohazard scenes. TravelnMedic's cautionary tales should assure us all of this. Not to mention logical thinking about touching multiple people's drinks, touching multiple people's hair, sticking hands in multiple people's pants (!), etc., etc.

    TSA has also exempted itself from the Privacy Act......

    Yup, I know chinese restuarnts that were cleaner then TSA checkpoints. TSA disgusting misuse of PPE makes my skin crawl and I come into contact with some of the nastiest people, bacteria, and viri at work.

    No such expemtions exist, even though they like to claim otherwise. I know health inspectors who have told federal officals to go do something anatomically impossible, comply or get shut down. In one case in S Dallas the feds throught they would bow up and ignore till the health inspector came in with the fire marshall yanked there occupancy permit. Nice way to shut down a Social Security office.

    And they got away with that? Usually (expletive deleted) with a fed office means you get an invitation to explain your actions, nattily dressed in leg irons and belly chains.

    Yes. They attempted to bow up but didnt help due to small town politics.

    This fire marshal used to be the health inspector for this city share a office, so was real easy. The feds at the SS office folded like a cheap lawn chair after the FM had everyone removed from the building and the doors chained shut. However it took the feds 2 weeks to get the boot out of there butt before the FM would reissue a occupancy permit. Funniest part of it the typical blood suckers on the govt dole weren't mad at the city, but at the SS office. People at the SS office even 2 years later they catch flack for the whole situation.

    This inside the sterile area beverage testing can be ended. A campaign to not buy any beverages inside the sterile area would quickly bring this TSA abuse to an end.

    No it wouldn't. TSOs will continue to test the potentially explosive water obtained from drinking fountains.

    Providing, of course, the pseudosmurf was not aflame at the time you gave your sample...:D

    Even then, I probably would. I'd probably also need a few minutes to down some good Scotch, though, so as to produce a sample of higher "proof" than my Diet Coke usually provides.
