Speaking of the TSA…

"It is the invariable habit of bureaucracies, at all times and everywhere, to assume…
that every citizen is a criminal. Their one apparent purpose, pursued with a relentless
and furious diligence, is to convert the assumption into a fact. They hunt endlessly for
proofs, and, when proofs are lacking, for mere suspicions. The moment they become
aware of a definite citizen, John Doe, seeking what is his right under the law, they begin
searching feverishly for an excuse for withholding it from him."
                        
                                                                                                                H. L. Mencken

 

 

(1880-1956) American Journalist, Editor, Essayist, Linguist, Lexicographer, and Critic

    -The head scratcher about the TSA, is there is a giant red arrow pointing at a certainsegment of the population thats says, "I\’m the terrorist! Yoo hoo! Here I am! It\’s me!"And the TSA is whirling around, looking every where BUT at the potential terrorists,looking in the underwear of 76 year old women.-
