    This won't get rid of government mandates to molest and porno scan but maybe it is a start to get rid of TSA government workers....and might prevent Obama's attempt to form a new Government union...

    Most airports are run by local taxing authorites. The pressure from those governments to keep those TSA union dirtbags will be immense.

    You know that the TSA isn't unionized yet, right?

    I stand corrected, but the pressure/blackmail from the Feds will be hard to overcome.

    he spews and spews and spews but hasn't a clue about anything.

    the world must be a terrible bleak and dark place for someone that ignorant.

    He didn't spew anything. Why do you always kneejerk? You kneed a neurologist or what?

    I highlighted that for you so the idiots onboard could read and hopefully comprehend that you knew they were not unionized yet. :lol:

    So really.

    What is the solution here?

    We should have people that make $8.25, no benefits, guarding airports?

    That's the solution?

    I love that people think that "privatization" will save money.

    Just like KBR doing our troops laundry and cooking is "saving money" too, right?
