    TSA to buy thousands of badge holders from small business in Utah

    Presumably these badge holders can accommodate a sex offender registration card.

    They are special in another way, too. They can be flipped over with one smooth motion to avoid being identified by irate passengers who intend to file a complaint against the Airport Security Screener. (Sort of like the smooth motion used by that grandmother to pass the dangerous weapon to her granddaughter during a seemingly innocent hug. Oh, wait...:rolleyes:)

    Perhaps this is in anticipation of losing their pretend police badges?

    Those are the ones with the protection from skimmers, I have a similiar one for my .gov ID. They are pretty cool, especially since many of the ID cards have the chips in them (military branches and other .gov groups have these IDs as well).

    “The ultimate in one hand credential scanning where the card doesn't have to be taken out, significantly reducing wear and tear on the CAC or TWIC Card,” says the company’s Website. “You just simply flip open, scan flip closed and protect. Very durable and sturdy and prevents unauthorized data scanning or skimming.”

    Yet TSA demands that we remove our ID's from any kind of holder when going through a TSA Stasi "Papers Please" Checkpoint.

    When I enter the SIDA areas, I would have to remove it from the holder (if I were to keep it in one, due to that reason, I keep it out of holders).
