    They told me that if I voted for McCain, we'd be living in a police state …

    oops, that's Glenn's schtick …

    That is absolutely infuriating. And these people wonder why they're so hated.

    You know that there was an off-the-record training session where the TSA agents were told "You can't detain travelers for non-security issues. You must refer suspicions to local law enforcement. That's why local law enforcement will be on hand to help you detain people if your snooping bears fruit."

    Charles –

    Unfortunately, as I am sure you agree, there is no fruit here. Release the tort lawyers!

  5. Charles says:

    Oh, definitely, TomH. I think "fruit" would be defined in my fake briefing as "any bullshit you want to use as grounds to detain someone."

    That is one reason I won't fly anymore.

    Meanwhile, the TSA goons … err, twits … err, morons … oh the heck with it.

    TSA clowns allow terrorists to get on an airplane, probably because they did not have suspicious checks that might mean they were skipping town on their spouses.

    Useless gits let these terrorists go on an aircraft, despite lots of real suspicious stuff, and let them switch planes at O'Hare as well.
