1. The TSA, including its most incompetent procedures, came from “W” and conservative legislators’ actions.
2. I hate flying today, because of TSA, and found driving across the country far less stressful than putting up with them at the airport. There is no point in that, and going on an INTERNATIONAL flight from LAX, with better trained, more polite, and more competent screeners, was far less stressful than any domestic flight I’ve taken. It’s a matter of their training, and “guidance”, and experience. It seems the biggest idiots are the ones kept on domestic screening.
3. As to airport “security”, this case proves among other things, that the TSA facade, is just that, only an expensive facade we seriously need to neuter.
