A recent study stated that 1 in 5 Americans has a mental disease. Oddly enough, Gallup polls usually show that about 20% of Americans declare themselves to be liberals. Weird huh? What is even stranger is that that 20% is running the DHS/TSA at the top, i.e., Nutbag Napolitano.

Let’s examine some of the successes of the TSA since their creation.

1. Posting their security manual online. Classic. It is always a boon to the terrorist to know the security procedures. Usually terrorists have to post recon elements to observe their target’s security procedures, which puts them at risk of getting spotted and counter-surveilled by security personnel. That is Anti-Terrorism 101 and why random security security procedures work so well. The TSA took out the middle man and let the terrorists know exactly what was coming. Awesome.

2. The shoebomber Richard Reid, possibly the ugliest human on the face of the earth, was only busted by the passengers who subdued him. But the TSA and the Federal Gov’t, in their infinite wisdom, have forced millions of passengers to take their shoes off as they go through security. Aren’t there dogs who sniff bombs? Are there not machines that can sniff explosives? Wait, we can’t do that because Muslims don’t like dogs and the ACLU might sue. Oh, and at Detroit, the passengers who had subdued Reid, were held in the baggage area for over five hours until the FBI interviewed them. No food. No phone calls. Americans treated like criminals. Even the pilot was hassled. Gee, had he wanted to, he could've crashed the plane. Duh.

3. The skivvie bomber. One, his father went to the American embassy to warn against his son’s affiliation with al Qaeda and it was evidently ignored and two, the clown botched it, security did not catch it. Perhaps best of all, they DID manage to read him his Miranda Rights. Thank God for that. BTW, the skivvie bomber had no passport. You think someone might have caught that way before he got on the plane?

4. We STILL can’t scan cargo but we can grab crotches and force women to reveal their prosthetic breasts. GO TSA!

5. TSA is currently considering Council on American-Islamic Relations requests for special procedures for screening Muslim women. Guess what, they get to PAT THEMSELVES DOWN! Oh yeah, THAT is gonna work. (Proposed by Mohamed Elibiary, now a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council! What's next for this regime, putting Taliban Johnny Lindh on the Joint Chies of Staff!?)

6. The TSA made a mother drink her own breast milk.

7. The TSA says that terrorists have discussed putting explosives in prosthetics. And they've used womb bombs as well. Do we ALL need cavity searches? (Barney Frank nods yes) And since 2001, there have been no arrests of any American citizen getting on a flight in the United States, with the intent to commit an act of terrorism. ONWARD TSA CROTCH GRABS! (BTW, it appears that Barney Frank is flying incessantly now and opting-out.)

The Gunny studied the Israeli model back in 2003-2004, when he was working for a security professional credential. Oddly enough, they have NOT had ONE INCIDENT since the 70’s. It is called security-in-depth.

1. At the terminal entrance, armed security personnel keep a close watch on those who enter the buildings.
2. Plainclothes personnel (armed) patrol the area outside the terminal.
3. Hidden surveillance cameras operate at all times.
4. ANYONE looking nervous or suspicious, gets chatted up to further assess their intentions.
5. Inside the terminal, uniformed and plainclothes officers patrol at all times.
6. Departing passengers are personally questioned by security agents even before arriving at the check-in desk.
7. Baggage is placed through an X-ray machine unless the person is assessed as a low risk and they get passed straight through to the check-in desks!
8. Checked baggage is put in a pressure chamber to trigger any possible explosive devices.
9. Passengers continue through to personal security and passport control.
10. El Al puts at least one armed, plainclothes sky marshal on all its flights. Here in America, we can’t use retired military, for example, because many of them are over 40 by the time they are sworn-in and that violates... federal law. Kinda sorta a waste of a skilled asset huh and thus, many of our flights are sans a flight marshal.
11. THEY PROFILE. Oh oh, the ACLU, CAIR, the SPLC, and the Left won’t like that.

In a nutshell, NO ONE gets to the check-in counter until they’ve been checked but afterwards, they don’t have to remove their shoes, give up their toothpaste, their nose-hair scissors, or their bottle of water or get to enjoy a crotch grab! The TSA is just another sinkhole for money that has people doing jobs of little or no value to its security mission but it does manage to SNAFU the flying experience. Government to the rescue again. 

And evidently, there are no folks with prosthetic devices in Israel because they don't use that as an excuse.

Top down, bottom up, and inside-out, the Left’s game plan. Make it a HASSLE to travel. Keep you in one place. Aggravate the masses. Hamper airline commerce. All in the name of security. If it violates the Fourth Amendment, WHO CARES!

BTW, Obama says he feels our pain and Baghdad Bob Gibbs says suck it up. Have any of these elitists gone through this? Evidently not.

Dear Barry, as a Constitutional scholar (HAHAHA), here is a refresher:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."



  1. Good post,Guns. Why is it,almost a YEAR later they are just now worried ANOTHER fool may try to be the Fruit of Kaboom bomber? Always playing catch-up instead of catch them. The damned TSA ought to be disbanded IMMEDIATELY,Bush kicked SQUARE in the ass for creating it to begin with,and ISRAELI screening methods be deployed NOW. NOT A ONE of the hijackers,homicide bombers,whatever you want to call them,have had GRAY hair,or been under 15 years old,whatever. PROFILING works. You don't see this shit happening at Ben Gurion airport.

  2. TSA is the creation of "experts".
    Every time there is an event, from an act of terrorism (where they trot out a "terrorism expert" whatever the hell that is) to an oil spill (where they trot out an "oil spill expert".)
    "Expert". It should be stricken from the dictionary. Along with "free".
    Napolitano is head of Homeland Security. I guess she is the head "expert".
    See where this is heading?
    I'm tired of seeing some idiot on the television talking about stuff he might have read up on and being called a government expert.
    Government "experts" are about as expert as was the military advisor of Longshanks' son in Braveheart.

  3. They keep coming at our freedoms so fast that I can't keep up with it. While we are fighting one thing, they are sneaking in something else that will take a different freedom. While we are fighting TSA, they are pushing the Dream Act, and the "Fairness" doctrine for the internet.
    They say 62% of the sheeple say they feel these TSA things are necessary if it keeps us safe.
    If reality, a terrorist (if one of us) could step into the airpost and blow up the terminal, with hundreds of people killed. Why not do that instead of an airplane? The terrorists since 9/11, have come from a middle eastern country , on the way here.They haven't originated here going to a city here, or over seas.

    "Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither." Ben Franklin
    I don't understand Americans accepting this without a fight!!!!

  4. clyde,

    Exactly right. While the israeli profile, and I agree with that, (not many 80 year old granny terrorists running around), they also DO NOT violate what would be our 4th AM right in doing so. A few questions, some observations, and if you're kosher, you're on your way.

  5. Buck,

    This is what happens when people fail to take in all of the possibilities, and then decide on the best course of action. The Israelis were consulted after 9/11 and their method was rejected! STUPID! Again, the Dims and the RINOs shafted us on that one.

  6. Nanna,

    You are saying what I have been saying for the last five years at least. There is no security in-depth, starting at the entrance to the airport. The muslim wannabe shooter/stabber in LA a few years back proved that. And when it happens, the feds will knee-jerk react into more oppression, instead of smarter security, and the sheep will nod along with it.

  7. Experts = ex spurts =

    has been drips under pressure

  8. You know I ALWAYS have something to say about just about any issue posted here, but Gunny, Well Freakin Said! The TSA seems to run by people who are constantly asleep at the wheel. And you know I am about as liberal as it gets, but one issue where you and I will always agree on is the issue security of americans while at war. Because when it comes to commercial airliners which now should be classified as weapons, I say we take every measure possible to keep those weapons under safe operation. I had NO idea that they would post their security procedures online! JESUS MAN?! Just give them a playbook on how to sneak a bomb on board why dont we? Great idea TSA! And I say its time that we start profiling the hell out of people. "Oh sir you've been to Afghanistan in the last 5 years, step in this line please." "I see you're wearing a hijab sir, please step into this line where a fellow muslim can search you"
    (Because anyone wearing one of these cannot have their head wear searched under current laws)I am not a huge fan of racial profiling but when it comes to this it is not subjecting anyone to cruel or unusual punishment, its just asking for further verification that your not going to blow us all to shit! SPOT ON GUNNY!

  9. frankie,

    Careful, embracing profiling will get you excoriated by the Left!

    The part about all of this that angers me is that there ARE better ways to do it but it is all about filling the pockets of their buddies, i.e., Rapiscan, Soros, etc. THAT pisses me off.

    As far as you being as liberal as you get, I do beleive that there is a Conservative inside, clawing to get out. I converted BOTH of my lib sisters and am well versed it deprogramming libs!

  10. I know, I hope my communist friends dont catch wind of this or I'll have to find a new group of friends! hahaha! More and more when you actually take the time to learn about opposite ideologies the more you realize they have some good freakin ideas! "A hand up, not a hand out"?!?!?!?! Absolute poetry in motion. I have never heard a better compromise in my life. But as far as deprogramming, dont know if I can really lean that way. There are a few core beliefs that just clash with what the political right holds dear. But hey the more I learn the better so keep crankin em out Gunny!

  11. frankie,

    Moreover, once Americans realize that we need to do what is good for the COUNTRY along the lines of the Constitution as it was written, it gets even better. You see, liberals CLAIM to have an open mind but always seem to want to shut out the opposition, as Sharpton recently said that the FCC should shut down Rush.

    You are young yet and idealistic, as you should be, as WE once were. As Churchill (Winston, not Ward), said:

    “If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty you have no brain.”

    Next time you see one of your friends wearing a Che shirt, ask him/her if they know how many Cubans Che murdered. See what they say.

    frankie, the bottom line is that conservatism WORKS, while socialism, marxism, communism does not, and never has. If you read Gov Bradford's diary from the Virginia colony, it validates my premise.

    Remember, my question line is always open at:


  12. Hey,frankie,for $20 I won't tell them! bwahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
