TSA Does Not Keep You Safe. It Never Has. It Never Will
July 15, 2012
In a little less than a week, I will be flying for the third time this year. When I get to the airport, I will be faced with three abhorrent choices:Have myself photographed in my birthday suit by one of those very possibly cancer-causing nudie-nukers. Have my crotch groped by some tax-mainlining pervert in an act that anywhere else would constitute sexual assault. This is also full of health risks. Not flying.
And if you are going to say, “Then just don’t fly”, then you just don’t get it.
As Vin Suprynowicz has put it, “It’s all a vicious game of ‘let’s pretend.’”
TSA does not keep you safe. It never has. It never will.
