    I feel a certain sour amusement that today, findingDulcinea posted a story about a teacher who asked Colorado high school students to invent a terrorist plot as part of their homework: I commented that you should leave stuff like that to the professionals, like thriller writers. Thriller writers, comic book writers: close enough.

    Always nice to see the people tasked with working for a government agency prove they are among the stupidest people on the planet.

    Stupid question: what does TSA stand for?

    • Glenn Hauman says:

      Transportation Security Administration, part of the United States Department of Homeland Security.

        Thanks for the info. After a while these government agencies start blurring together. FBI, EPA, DEA, NSA, CIA, ATF, DOJ, TSA, DSH, and etc.

        DHS was basically created for two reasons – Security Theatre (If you look like you're busily doing something good, people won't notice that you're not – or that you're even doing evil – and yes, Dick Cheney, i am looking at you and your sock pupprt), and union busting (the unions in all of the agencies subsumed under DHS were eliminated or castrated).Your public servants at work.

          Were the dissolutions of those unions followed by a drop in pay or reduction of benefits, or any of the other things usually assumed to be a goal of removing a union?

          • mike weber says:

            I don't have the figures – but i do know that Reagan's dissoution of the air traffic controllers' union resulted in a lot of not-very-experienced new-hires going live on the boards a lot sooner than the were ready.And i do know that, even when federal employees have unions, the carda are stacked against them.However, whether or not there is any (so far) discernble/quantifiable damage to anyone is irrelevant to the question of motive – unrestricted warrantless wire-taps with no supervision may not yet have been proven to be harmful … but they should be opposed, anyway.When someone who is demonstrably hostile to the existence and/or goals of an organisation manipulates the laws to eliminate that organisation, one should step carefully and keep one's eyes open."When the fox preaches, look to your geese."
