“Anyone boarding an aircraft should feel maybe only a teeny tiny bit safer than if there were no TSA at all.”
An article by this anonymous former screener in the New York Post paints a devastating portrait of an agency that employs incompetents, enforces arbitrary regulations, and engages in what security expert Bruce Schneier calls “security theater”: public actions taken in the name of security that actually do nothing to make people safer.
TSA agents at the Louisville, Kentucky airport laughed at a deaf man, called him “f***ing deafie,” and then stole his candy – another perfect example of why this loathsome federal agency needs to be abolished immediately.

Blogger ‘Tea and Theater’ was traveling back home having attended a week-long conference for deaf people in Louisville. His t-shirt, part of promotional material for the conference, clearly identified him as being deaf.
As soon as he approached airport security, the TSA officers began laughing at the man.
“They went through my bag (for no reason), and found a couple bags of candy I brought. I was told I wasn’t allowed to fly with that (wtf? I’ve flown with food before — these were even sealed still because I brought them right in the airport).
The TSA has failed to respond to the now confirmed fact that the federal agency has introduced a bizarre new policy in which travelers are ordered to “freeze” on command by TSA screeners while passing through security, a policy described as “obedience training” by critics.

Bizarre power trip behavior of federal agency reaches new level of craziness
If you thought the bizarre power trip behavior of the TSA couldn’t get any crazier – think again. According to a friend of political commentator Lew Rockwell, the federal agency is now ordering travelers passing through security to “freeze” on command.
Agency claims it is attempting to be “unpredictable”
TSA Explains Bizarre New Policy Of Testing Drinks Purchased In Airports airport water
The TSA has attempted to explain away a bizarre expansion of its powers inside airports as part of a move to employ “unpredictable measure(s)” to snare would be criminals and terrorists.
In a bizarre and insufficiently explained expansion of the TSA’s power, the federal agency is now demanding the right to test drinks purchased by passengers after they have already passed through airport security.
TSA agents have once again been accused of conducting a strip-search on an elderly traveler after airport screeners carried out an “obscene” pat down on a 73-year-old grandmother during which they touched her breasts.
