I would be remiss not to reuse such a compelling headline, Kiro TV in Seattle reports:
“I didn’t really expect her to touch my vagina through my pants,” said Kaya McLaren, an elementary schoolteacher, of an airport screener.
Come on already.
In other news:
Erick Erickson (what a name) of Red State reports:
This is probably another good time to remind you all that all of us were carrying actual assault rifles, and some of us were also carrying pistols. So we’re in line, going through one at a time. One of our Soldiers had his Gerber multi-tool. TSA confiscated it. Kind of ridiculous, but it gets better. A few minutes later, a guy empties his pockets and has a pair of nail clippers. Nail clippers. TSA informs the Soldier that they’re going to confiscate his nail clippers.
And Gruber linked to this gem from Molly Grantham reporting for WBTV:
“She put her full hand on my breast and said, ‘What is this?’. And I said, ‘It’s my prosthesis because I’ve had breast cancer.’ And she said, ‘Well, you’ll need to show me that’.” Cathy was asked to show her prosthetic breast, removing it from her bra.
It appears that the TSA wants you to be safe and humiliated before you fly – ass wipes.
My TSA Story
Lastly here is something interesting that happened to my Wife when she got to TSA yesterday in SEATAC. She got in line a noticed that she was in the porno-scanner line. She lane jumped to a metal detector and did so a couple of times to make sure she got through TSA fast enough to not be re-routed to the short porno-scanner line. Upon clearing the metal detector an agent that had been watching her pulled her aside and search her stuff, telling her that she had too many liquids.
This ass of a TSA agent claimed that she could only have 3oz of liquids TOTAL in her bag. WTF. Here is TSA’s official policy:
What my Wife was told was clearly a lie, eventually they let her through. I have no doubt that this was in response to her jumping lines and probably looking freaked out that she may have to be groped instead of being given cancer with the porno-scanner. If that was the case though TSA should have asked her about it instead of passive aggressively making shit up.
