TSA agent to Me "(America) lost a long time ago"

Whenever I travel I ALWAYS opt out of the body scanning machines. This encounter was between a TSA Agent and Myself today at LAX

TSA asked me why I wanted to opt out of body scanning machine saying its no longer X-ray.

Me: "I still don't trust it"

TSA: "come on you gotta trust your government"

Me: "I hope you're kidding"

TSA: "of course I am kidding"

Me: "how could you work for the government then?"

TSA: "we (America) lost a long time ago at least I'm on the winning side now"

I was TSA when I woke up

They allowed us more freedom back then, they changed a lot after a lot of the employees were waking up to the truth. It was after I was told the truth about 9/11 by my supervisors, and even the training courses, that I began to question the morality of what we were doing.

Declassified example: Liquids are banned above certain ounces, but in every use of bombs on airplanes, powders were used not liquids.
Powders have no limitation when boarding aircraft, as most powders are considered medicine...

There are times I had wished I stayed, just so we have some good people on the inside, but I am glad I left.

Reminds me of the Beginning

of Men In Black 3.

The girl helps the bad Alien dude escape and then he kills her.


He's winning alright

Ain't that the truth

there ain't no winning this game. Hell, just the fact that there are still a majority of people blind to the obvious fact that this country has been led to the slaughter should be evidence enough that there ain't no winning.

A logic which has a flavor strongly similar to "wars create wealth" during depression times.

Or more government spendings is good to stimulate an economy.

Or trading individual liberties for safety is sometimes or always necessary.

Etc, etc.

Yeah, riiight. We're all so much better off now, as we can see daily, with dear govt applying thoroughly for decades all these great principles... of legal plunder.

Aren't we?

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

You Can

Only win for so long. Then some one figures out how to beat you.

Well that's a rather cynical and likely idiotic response you got

Well, that's a rather cynical and likely idiotic response you got from that agent.

Cynical for thinking of it and boasting like that.

Likely idiotic for thinking of it and ... believing it.

Yeah, riiiiiight, he/she's on the "winning side":


Sure... Winning... "SORT OF."

He's winning because he joined the enemies side


There is an old saying, if you can't beat them, join them. This is an example of that. We should all join there side of things. We can corrupt the already corrupt system. All corrupt systems fall, let us speed up the process. The question is who will take control of our masters when they fall? The way the libertarians have been doing things have not worked. Time to change tactics, do whatever is necessary to win. Fake being a democrat or republican, cheer on the war machine, cheer on higher taxes, or lower taxes, education, drones, anti-terrorist, etc etc... Of course I speak only of those who are running for any level of power. For us to win we must walk around in wolfs clothing for awhile. Of course I would say record everything, for those recordings might be useful later on.

Who's side?

TSA guy think he's on the winning side.
You must be joking...
How can you think you are winning when you lose your liberties?
What about your children? or grandchildren?
Actually, if you think like this, then you are a big part of the problem in America today.
It takes a certain kind of mentality to want to work for TSA and abuse the power that's been given you over the people.
The side you are on sir is the losing side, because you do not comprehend that you are a part of "WE THE PEOPLE".
