Dear TSA

Dear TSA: you need to go.  You need to go now.  Your previously annoying antics have grown to be truly disturbing, a representation of everything wrong with bureaucratic creep.  You are a personification of Benjamin Franklin’s saying, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Dear TSA: I know you are out there, and I know that you watch the blogs (even my humble little one).  Which frankly, is also somewhat disturbing. But I know that you have people working for you, normal people, who aren’t “bad guys,” people who are just doing their job.  Unfortunately, these people have come to rely on an institution that stands against everything that makes my country great.  These people have become accomplices to your agenda by way of their complacency.  They should not stand for your policies any more than I should.  As long as they do, I can not feel sorry for them if my words cut.

Dear TSA:  I know this may sound harsh, but I truly believe that we should burn you to the ground, and keep you in the history books only as a horrible warning.  You are nothing that should be kept, and I am ashamed that you are a part of my country.  It is telling that your Wikipedia entry has only a “criticism and scandal” section, with nothing detailing your non-existent triumphs.  It is telling that at this point if you had a success story, most would dismiss it as a staged publicity stunt. You are useless, and you should never have gotten beyond that brainstorming session in the U.S. Capital Building back in 2001. 

Dear TSA:  you are nothing to me, you are nothing to America, and you have no hope of gaining our love or respect.  You have jumped the shark, and I hope to see my tax dollars spent on something else, anything else, very soon.

  1. You've pretty much covered it, thanks.

  2. When I was going through boot camp, they told us about that whole "I vass only folowink orders" thing the Nazis tried, and we were told the difference between a lawful order and and what we might think is an unlawful order.The thing is, that we were supposed to try following it and then report it to "higher". If these people had a problem with it, there would be some kind of reports to find somewhere.So, with the lack of those reports in the public view, I can only believe that those proto NAZIs don't have any problems taking away our fourth Amendment rights.

  3. Burn it up, burn it down.

  4. Compromise, hell! That's what has happened to us all down the line – and that's the very cause of our woes. If freedom is right and tyranny is wrong, why should those who believe in freedom treat it as if it were a roll of bologna to be bartered a slice at a time?–Jesse Helms
