    The security breach comes on the same day that the Homeland Security Department acknowledged that some TSA agents went too far by strip-searching two elderly women in New York.

    This just continues to show that the TSA is not the great protector that the government makes out to be. The TSA can harrass old ladies but can't find a gun? At this point, I am not surprised.

    Which is the same as not finding it.

    TSA = Theater for Societal Abdication
    = Tyranny Spreading Administration
    = Technocrats Strutting Abusively
    = Totally Stupid and Asinine
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    ...and the plane didn't explode? Didn't come crashing to the ground in a giant fireball? No one was shot? No punctured fuselage?

    That's not possible. All those politicians promised me that it would happen if guns were allowed on planes, and that's why I want them banned!

    I wonder if any folks interviewed by the media stated that they had no problem with a 65 year old lady with a gun on board....in fact, felt safer because of it.....naw...the media likely excluded that type of comment.
