    I believe a congressional report will be released today that will be unfavorable to TSA.
    Please help and keep a lookout today.

    Report is out:

    Mica proves what a douche he is once and for all:

    Bold, italics and underlining mine.

    'Scuse me while I go off to sulk awhile. Today's "news" has me seriously cranky.
     
  4. "Elevating the TSA administrator's authority," what on earth would that entail? That sounds very bad.

    Pistole is already out of control. He should be fired, not given more authority.

    We need to get a copy of the actual report, not just the PR that accompanied its release.

    Just finished reading the report. If I had such a report as a manager I would be fired. Pistole is a complete failure as an administrator.

    Hope our SDOO chances don't diminish with this statement

    Not to be a downer-debbie, but I've noticed with this whole mess for the last 10 years, Murhpy's Law illustrated by giving two choices, they will always pick the worse one.

    I wonder what it's going to take to convince travelers to start opting out in droves? That's the only viable solution. Only when the TSA cannot coerce a single sheep through the backscatter machines, or anything else for that matter, will the problem go away.

    If the sheeple get truly spooked, and won't walk through, near or toward any machine whatsoever, then the TSA will finally have to come clean. I wonder what it's going to take to spook 'em. If or when it happens, my guess is that whatever sets the sheeple off will make no sense to Tuggers. We'll scratch our heads and say, "Really? That bothers the herd? Who woulda thunk?"

    I know. I said this from the beginning. When they started "testing" these things, along with the gropes, in January 2010. I kept saying, all it would take is enough people opting out -- 50%, 30%, (expletive deleted), even 10% -- every time, at every airport, to bollux up the works. But of course I knew they wouldn't:

    When A.S.S. Strip Search Machine Operator cancer rates reaches a high enough rate I suspect some action will be taken.
    What I cannot understand is the stupidity of the A.S.S. who trust Pistole and stand around those operating x-ray machines all day.
    Hate to say it but it's their own fault if they become ill.

    I don't know, if you've ever dealt with insurance or government or lawyers-or all together, they could simply deny and say there's no satisfactory proof that the machines cause the illness and blame some factors in the employee's outside life.

    Never underestimate the power of denial.
