    At long last, someone from a national organization has spoken out about the TSA's abject inability to deal with individuals with medical conditions:

    Train, train, train. Yeah, that'll do it.

    What a joke.

    Yeah, man, juice is scary! I would've panicked, too. We all would. Juice! Juice! Terror in the skies!

    I think it has been proven beyond any doubt that TSA screeners are untrainable.

    Proof that TSA puts people's lives in jeopardy. Feel safer now?

    Obfuscation, backpedaling, and denial by Blogger Bob, et. al. in 3, 2, 1 . . . .

    No, but they can probably be conditioned if you beat them enough. Meanwhile, what's a few insulin pumps & a couple dead diabetics? After all, we're under attack. :rolleyes:

    There is no way to "fix" endemic stupidity except to excise it from the top to the bottom.

    Excision typically involves sharps. Can we amend this to include blunt force?

    Yes, the great, the stupendous, the incomparable Aretha!

    (Webmaster, may we have an Aretha emoticon that we can use for greatness, in addition to a fear emoticon, a baklava emoticon, and a sheep emoticon [​IMG] ?) Also maybe an Alice in Wonderland or Looking Glass or Mad Hatter or down-the-rabbit-hole emoticon. Wait, there's more: chicken and roost emoticons.

    But I want to perform double orchidectomies on them without anesthesia and watch them bleed out. (Need a "walking tall" emoticon tapping a baseball bat on his foot)

    If it can destroy an insulin pump, do I really want to be scanned? Author is having second thoughts ...
