    Seems Blogger Bob (or his puppeteer) has posted the latest TSA Fantasy piece.

    I am truly not sure if Blogger Bob believes the claptrap he writes or if he is such a weak person that he will say anything for his bosses.

    Sentences like this

    "In our mission to protect all people when they travel, our workforce is committed to treating each person with dignity and respect throughout the screening process."

    make me wonder just where this is being done as I can testify that the airports I have traveled through are devoid of TSA employees treating people with dignity or respect.

    I'm thinking Blogger Bob is due for a fitness for duty eval.
     
  2. Just read it. Ha! I think it was supposed to be satire. No way he could write that with sincerity.
     
  3. This was a comment from the "4 year old suspect" post, but it was too good not to share.

    I posted something about geese and "Terror in the skies!" in Jeffrey Goldberg's Atlantic column. Someone said that geese were a danger -- apropos of WTF god only knows.

    As for Bloghdad Bob, I'm not even going to bother reading it. There's no point. He's O'Brien through and through.

    Geese got into the engines of the US Airways flight that the pilot (whose name I can't recall at the end of a long work day, but whose accomplishment was astounding) managed to land in the Hudson River last year with no fatalities and only minimal injuries. I was actually going to mention it in the comments on the Atlantic thread, in response to the person who said "name the last time there was an airplane crash".

    They have since earned type certifications on the DC-7. Apparently they'd rather fly something that just chops those little mothers up instead of ingesting them.

    This would seem to be in response to the app recently launched by the Sikh group.

    aka Sully, who BTW, spoke out against TSA last year saying it was abusive and ineffective.

    I didn't express myself well. I know that geese are a danger to airplanes. A TSA apologist brought up this fact in that Atlantic thread. It had nothing to do with anything, given that he was arguing for the TSA and claiming that we're all gonna die if they don't search everyone's crotches. Even as he acknowledged that geese are a greater danger. It made no sense. So I left a sarcastic comment along the lines of "Geese! Geese! Red Alert! Terror in the Skies!"

    He passed. Why do you think I call him Blogdad Bob?
