    Belch: Blogger Bob is as Fat and Smug as You’d Expect

    Belch has quite a few articles tagged "tsa". Blogger Bob is also tagged "fat" and "retarded". :D

    Possibly the truest statement ever flung across the Internet.

    I just added a comment remarking on the censorship on the TSA blog. Don't know if it has to be approved but did not show up after submitting.

    I gave up hope for a serious dialog with Curtis Burns / TSA Blogger Bob a long time ago when he ignored my repeated questions why specimen Nude-O-Scope pictures, in the same size and resolution as seen in the viewing booth, were never released. Occasionally I'll go see how he tries to spin the latest TSA screw-up, but that's about it. His socially awkward attempts at "humor" can be painful to read.

    There is no dialog with TSA or the TSA Blog. There is TSA propaganda by the truck load.

    It is for this reason I won't read anything that dbag writes on the TSA blog. He is as implicit in the atrocities committed by the TSA as Heir Pistole and his front line retard squad.

    In reference to the propaganda guru, there is another one at the FTF's... he goes by the board name Sattso (?) ... as with Bob... he parrots the same pablum... the tsa is always right and damned are your rights ect.... these serial sexual molesters are disgusting ! Not to mention the glee with which they violate our Constutional and civil rights , due to the total ineptness of our so-called elected leaders ( What ajoke ! )

    He graced us here with his presence also, but he couldn't stand the heat so he got out of the kitchen. ;)

    He didnt like that his actions could have (& Do) consequences and that there are people that wont stand for BS from pizza box rejects and will make them eat there own words. Since then hasnt been around. Ron hasnt been around much either now that i think about it.

    Because they couldn't match up against the common logic, reason and wit without hiding/invoking the strict censorships tricks over here.

    In a lot of ways it's reflective of the way TSA clerks operate on the job and how the organization itself operates in the political sphere. I've seen discussions with them in the comments sections of TSA blog posts, and on other forums, censored in their favor by moderators. They hide behind faceless arbiters with absolute and unchallengeable authority to make sure anyone questioning them is doing so against effectively insurmountable odds.

    When they post here, where anyone making a genuine effort to have a discussion is able to post freely in response to them, they get verb-stomped again and again and they wind up going away because no imposing authority figure is willing to bail them out.

    At the airport, they act the tough thug because people's convenience, schedules, family trips and sometimes careers depend on those people being able to make their flights. Those who have built themselves backup plans also have "Interference with the screening process" accusations to contend with. I remember the (all-too-brief) story of the restaurant in Oregon that decided to make TSClerks persona non grata. TSA was butthurt over this because they could do nothing to control it. Private enterprises can turn people away at will and "Do you want to fly today?" could just as easily be responded to with "Do you want to eat today?"

    It's evident when Reichskommissar John S. Pistole gets called into a Congressional hearing that TSA has an entitlement complex the size of Antarctica. He acts oh-so-shocked and offended when someone suggests that TSA is doing things wrong, and keeps reiterating as authoritatively as he can that "This is just the way things are." Trying to give the impression that "resistance is useless."

    They're only willing to stay and "fight" when they have totally unfair odds on their side.

    There was a screener at the other place that posted for a short time that defiantly did not hold the party line, much to the annoyance of the other more gong-ho types. I wish I could remember his screen name - it was about a year ago last summer - because I would send him an invite.

    But one of our most notorious TSOs, someone who routinely pens insulting, condescending and wrong posts never ever gets called out by his (alleged or real) co-workers on this forum, the 'other' place or on the TSA Blog.

    If they can't call out one of their own in the relative safety of an anonymous IBB, why should we believe they would call out a fellow employee face-to-face on the job?

    I believe it was HSVTSODean that you are referring to at that "other place" (which will remain nameless).

    No, it wasn't Dean; he's been around for a long time. I really wish I could remember their name.
