    Well, (expletive deleted). There goes a good thing.

    I might have found the next topic for my elected officials to ignore. Congress seriously needs to get up TSA's (expletive deleted) about this - force them to "allow" airports to use private screeners or just legislate the matter and take away TSA's right to say "no."

    What's particularly galling is this, assuming I'm reading it right.

    I assume "the measure" is referring to privatization, and not AFGE's attempt to stop privatization. This means that the general public came out in support of TSA and its pedosmurfs versus private screeners who could be held accountable. I suppose it could be seen as a case of "better the devil you know" but when the devil you know is already a Balrog of Morgoth...how much worse could it be?

    (And yes, that does mean Pistole is Sauron and Napolitano is Ungoliant, and thanks for asking!)

    TSA didn't say no here. The union lobbied local officials to change their mind, and they did. As long as it remains this way, TSA will never have to say yes or no to Sacramento's request for privatization because Sacramento itself has taken the request off the table.

    Much of California sucks up to unions, so this is no great surprise.

    Typical CA suck ups. These fools will believe anything that a PR campaign tells them.

    AFGE is the standard garden variety thug union screwing its members and the public so a few can get rich at the expense of the stupid.

    I know a fellow who used to work for the Assembly speaker, an old time Dem, and he's advising his family to look outside the state, as things will deteriorate in this state and stay bad "for decades" because the lawmakers cannot say "No". They particularly cannot say "no" to unions, esp public sector unions.
