So just what is the TSA good for?

Sweet.  Even sweeter is how Orlando International Airport is telling the TSA not to let it hit them in the gropeables on the way out:
One of America’s busiest airports, Orlando Sanford International, has announced it will opt out of using TSA workers to screen passengers, a move which threatens the highly unpopular federal agency’s role in other airports across the nation.

“The president of the airport said Tuesday that he would apply again to use private operators to screen passengers, using federal standards and oversight,” reports the Miami Herald.


Larry Dale hinted that the move was motivated by the innumerable horror stories passengers have told of their encounters with the TSA, noting that the change was designed to provide a more “customer friendly” operation.
Gee, ya think?  Come on - what's a visit to Magic Kingdom without a trip on the Pedobear ride?  It's a "E" ticket!

I still say it's a warrantless search by those that wouldn't have the right to do the search even WITH a warrant.

Uh, well, Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) is not "one of the busiest airports in the country." According to their web site in 2010 they had 1,165,435 total passengers.

SFB's claim to fame is it's in Sanford, FL, 27 miles north of downtown Orlando, 46 miles north of Disney World, and has much less traffic and lower costs. Also, a lot fewer flights....

Orlando International Airport (MCO) in 2010 had 34,877,899 passengers. That's a 30X difference. And, for 2010 MCO doesn't make the top ten busiest airports in the US. In 2010 it was # 13.

Absolutely nothing, y'all. Say it again.

It has cost $60 billion, yet we could save $1 billion by privatizing, and that's a savings of 40%?

Something's not adding up here.

Seems like a RP ad more than Troof. Not that i like the TSA. Far from it.
