Finally some good news from the terror front. The man who started TSA rapists wants the whole thing privateized! This would be www.theblaze.com... good idea considering the amount of test explosives the TSA let through was 75% compared to the private company in SF that only let 20% through. Maybe now the molesting and thefts will stop and maybe this will create jobs somehow.


Sorry about the link Im not too good at this yet lol

Bingo! Someone's good family friend will profit incredibly while the system bloats with expense, abuse and management at kindergarten level. Privatization is just another way of screwing the taxpayer, just harder and deeper.

Heres a quote since you must not have read the article
Washington, DC – Airport passenger screening with private security screeners under federal supervision is dramatically more efficient and less costly than the all-federal screening model, according to a Transportation Committee investigative report.

Privatization is not the answer. Completely dismantle the organization. End the SS and the Gestapo both.

Since privatization always lowers costs and increases quality, your point? You don't actually believe that, do you?

The entire cost could be moved to the customers who are flying and off everyone elses back. That and the fact we will then be able to file law suits when they abuse the authority, which is another huge plus for us.

A private company will not molest you because they will not want to lose their job for one. Also they would not want to be sued. These TSA goons thought they were above the law hence the theft and molesting. Thats how its better

while I certainly hope that would be true...won't the government still keep laws in place allowing such behavior in the name of security even if it were privatized?

sorry but I don't believe in these fairy tails of the TSA seriously getting better...I would "hope" so...but there's about as much "hope" in that sentence as there is "change" in Obama's presidency...

The dismantling part I like...not so much the privatization...but I guess if it's a step in the right direction I wouldn't mind privatizing it...it needs to change from what it is now for sure

Take the very last letter, the 'a' out of the word fiasco in your link. That is what is causing it to not pull up the right page. Here is a working link: www.theblaze.com...
