Fired by TSA

No, not for stealing or groping or anything like that. They were fired because they failed to perform random screenings last year.

And the TSA admits that those random screens are useless anyway:

Castelveter said it’s important to note that every person who flew through the airport was screened.

“It’s the random secondary that did not happen,” he said. “At no time was a traveler’s safety at risk and there was no impact on flight operations.”

Then what’s the point of it, Sparky?

    A heck of an admission: 1) Our goal is safety. 2) We didn’t do our job. 3) Safety was not affected.

    So, umm, what are you there for?

    Fired for NOT stealing and groping?

    I opt’d out of the millimeter wave body scanner today in SFO and they took me through a gate to do the pat down but never put me through the metal detector. Seeing that the pat down only covered 75% of my body it’s rediculous that thy felt a metal detector wasn’t needed. Makes me laugh that they spend 5 mins on my waist band but will never pat down the bottom of my socks.

    Flying from Harlingen, Texas last November. After everyone had cleared security and was waiting at the gate, TSA came through with a machine that detects drug residue on skin and clothing. Several flyers were asked if they would voluntarily submit to testing. The, I watched the dolt who was operating the machine take a swab of a woman’s hands and walk to different area of the waiting area to test the sample. He did this outside of her presence and without wearing gloves himself. Why is this a big deal? Well, I operate one of those screening machines from time to time and I know how easy it is to have a sample tampered with. The TSA is staffed with bufoons and AA hires who couldn’t operate a snow cone machine. If you are ever asked to submit to this testing, make sure the agent wears gloves and that you sample stays in your field of vision at all times.

After several weeks of taking Viagra, I got used to it and took the drug only on the weekends. Noticing the changes, my girlfriend started to ask me why I'm so active on weekends. I had to honestly confess everything. She was not upset but supported me. So thanks to Viagra, I made sure that I'm loved just like the way I am.
