. Basically, the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) 'lost' the personal info of about 100,000 of its employees.
These are the same individuals who think they have the right to look through my personal belongings and then stuff them back into my bag. The same people who realistically believe it is feasible to concoct a bomb in an airplane bathroom from the contents of a chapstick tube.
If any of you work for TSA, my deepest concerns go out to you for your identity. However, know that I deeply disagree with most of the practices now necessary for boarding a plane. Taking off my shoes? Please! No liquids? Please! This is all a matter of conditioning. And this story is another example of a government sponsored foray demanding blind obediance while asking selective amnesia with regards to its failures.
It seems the Department of Homeland Security has done nothing but prove its own ineptness. It has proven that combination is not necessarily the best answer, with respect to disaster reaction and avoidance. Perhaps we should have placed more importance on open communication, rather than preparing for Martial Law.
Can the Government keep us safe during daily affairs? Is that the role of our Federal Government?
