TSA Theater has officially 'Jumped the Shark!' Ridiculous Airport-purchased Drinks Testing... AT the Waiting-Lounge!

Worst part? Look at the sheeple blindly complying...

Who's worse, the sheeple? Or, Nuremberg-ignorant sub-20 IQ TSA thugs?

Only if we had history's hindsight 20/20 that "hey, I was just following orders..." is never an excuse. Oh wait, we DO have that historical perspective available...

TSA liquid testing inside terminal at Columbus OH Airport

Published on Sep 3, 2012 by danno02

09/02/2012: While waiting in the Columbus OH airport for our flight to Oakland, I couldnt help but notice the two TSA women that were "testing" any and all liquids that people had in their hands. Now remember that this is inside the terminal, well beyond the security check and purchased inside the terminal...just people waiting to get on the plane. My wife and son came back from a coffee shop just around the corner, then we were approached. I asked them what they were doing. One of the TSA ladies said that they were checking for explosive chemicals (as we are drinking them).I said "really..inside the terminal? You have got to be kidding me". I asked them if they wanted to swab us all. She responded with something like, yes sometimes we need to do that. I then asked if she wanted a urin sample...none the less, the TSA is way out of control. I understand that my ranting to one of these $11.00 per hour TSA goons probably does nothing, but you have to say something. Whats next...perhaps the TSA will come to your home prior to your drive to the airport? The police state of the US is OUT OF CONTROL!

Video Shows TSA’s Bizarre New Security Policy
Federal agency tests drinks purchased inside airport

Monday, September 3, 2012

A video clip shot yesterday at Columbus Ohio Airport illustrates how the Transportation Security Administration has dreamed up a bizarre new way to waste time and taxpayer dollars – by testing drinks purchased by travelers for explosives inside the airport long after they have already passed security.

The footage shows TSA agents walking around a departure lounge asking to test passengers’ drinks for explosive residue with a swab they hold over the liquid.

“Now remember that this is inside the terminal, well beyond the security check and purchased inside the terminal…just people waiting to get on the plane,” writes the You Tube user who uploaded the video.

I don't feel safe!!!

Why hamburgers and sandwiches are not tested ? I don't want the smoking gun to be a C4 Subway Veggie! Please TSA, step your game up!

It's like they are to dumb to

It's like they are to dumb to even realize how stupid they are!

Etymology of 'jumped the shark'

When Fonzie jumped the shark on Happy Days, it was clear that the series was in irrevocable decline and grasping at straws.

That was it. The peak. It was all downhill from there.

Just FYI.

allegory - ˈalɪg(ə)ri/ - noun - 1. a story, poem, or picture which can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a moral or political one.

precisely

my point, plus a splash of sarcasm.

I respect my audience enough to expect them to know where that pop-culture meme originated. If not, it's not hard to figure out with either google or wiki.

Frankly, if the very concept of informed sarcasm goes over someone's head, here at DP, then we're really in trouble.

When I was a Department Store Santa in the 1980's, sometimes

it got very slow and there were no kids to talk to and tell me what they wanted for Christmas..... so I would leave Santa Land and walk around the store singing a song here and there, wishing people Merry Christmas outside and generally amusing myself.

Sounds like TSA Theater is very much like Santa Land Theater.

$11.00 per hour? Are you serious?

"I understand that my ranting to one of these $11.00 per hour TSA goons probably does nothing,"

Try $26.00 per hour.

This isn't new.

Frequent flyer forums have brought this up before. Its been going on for years. Apparently people get away with refusing. If it happens to me I'm going to give it a shot. That is, if I fly again, in which case it will be my last encounter with the TSA since I'll be expatriating.

Tampa

Leaving convention on Friday, I was outside the theater screening area hustling to the checkpoint. Probably 50 yards away. I saw a TSA uniformed person busy checking their phone. I walked very close to him, and he said "Hey I need a minute to talk to you." I kept walking and apparently he couldn't be bothered to follow through with his random harassment.

For TSA, I opt out of everything. Eventually it gets to the pat down - happened in Tampa when I refused the dangerous xray machine. When person asks if I want to do it in a private room, I say, "Let's stay here in public so it is on camera." It was light, quick, and generally ridiculous. No metal detectors at all.
Then I told him, "What you are doing in unAmerican." He quickly turned and walked away.

Sigh.

I'm hoping for entrepreneurs to begin a lot of transport startups, like gypsy cabs only for long distance -- RonVans anyone?

Ron Vans!

a great idea! .o)

Think of the potential for networking

and assisting liberty people in transport with far less hassle, far more enjoyment. Better service and profitable for entrepreneurs -- perhaps gift fares to avoid bothersome legalities?

great idea!

very agorist of you.o)

$11.00 an hour? Are you

$11.00 an hour? Are you kidding me? I get paid $7.50 to work at a food store doing more stuff, all they gotta do is stand around and touch things.(until I find an engineering job)

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Its far worse

They get the government's minimum wage, not the regular slave minimum wage. So its most likely $17 an hour or close to it.
