I’ve said before that the biggest problem with the TSA is that it can’t backtrack. Any politician who says, “Taking your shoes off is stupid” will be seen as “soft on terrorism.” The TSA therefore adds new ridiculous things to inconvenience passengers and justify its existence and they’ll never quit doing those things.
But I found out there is one way they can get rid of this stuff. I heard that they might be implementing some detector that means we won’t have to put liquids in stupid little baggies. That’s the way to fix it! The TSA gets “new technology” that can now “detect shoe bombs” and we don’t have to take our shoes off any more!
It’s a lie to fix a lie, isn’t that how it works?
