No they don’t want it expanding because heaven forbid people realize that there are alternatives to the abuse from the TSA. The only reason currently people put up with them is out of fear. Some people were finally getting the balls to tell them to F’ Off and of course being the government they need to stop it. We can’t have any
sheep people with alternative choices, we must be the ONLY choice. Congratulations everyone, you are stuck with a single vendor with no alternate choice. That single vendor is the government, paid for by you, to molest and harass your children, violate your women, and abuse you.
“I examined the contractor screening program and decided not to expand the program beyond the current 16 airports as I do not see any clear or substantial advantage to do so at this time,” Pistole said.
The substantial advantage you pompous ass-hat is that it would be a private company, not the government. As such it would be more liable to restrain itself from abusing people. It appears you would rather just stand on your pulpit and yell “Respect my Authoritah!” Heaven forbid we have someone doing the scanning that could get fired, put in jail, and not have a position which makes him think he’s a god.
I have long resigned to no longer flying commercially until the TSA is done. The only reason I will fly is for business, and even then the first words out of my mouth is going to be, “Are we taking one of the jets?” In order to keep my job though, I’m going to have to surrender to the TSA if it’s commercial. How is that acceptable? Fear is used to deprive us of our rights. It’s no longer the fear of terrorism, but of the loss of our jobs or jail.
