Because They Hate You

Why does the TSA behave like it does? Because it can.



Mr. Shannon Thomas was taking his mother's ashes to scatter them in the ocean. Fulfilling her last request. The TSA opened the urn during an inspection, failed to re-seal the container, and Mr. Thomas opened his suitcase to find the ashes spilled out on his clothes.

While my distaste for the TSA stems from the fact that I grew up in a free America where this whole "Your papers, please.." behavior was something that we associated with Nazis, I could add that I have no use for incompetence.

I hope he wins his lawsuit.

I hope he wins his lawsuit for not only a lot of money, but the responsible people lose their jobs. There is simply no excuse possible for this.

That is COMPLETELY INEXCUSABLE!!! :-(

There is no shame that incompetent bureaucrats won't keep stooping lower and lower to do.

Grrrr. What next, forceful inspection of our military dead's coffins as they come back from overseas, on the tarmac, before being handed over to the bereaved family and color guard?

Mayhaps the next round of Trump appointees will help stem this stupidity.


Andrew, also known as 'Beans,' is very unhappy with this world.

Living on 1 island, and working on another, I am subjected to their crap regularly. They once separated 1 jar of peaches, out of 4 in a sealed package, opened it, and did not reseal correctly. Entire suitcase contents soaked in peach syrup. But this, this is just unacceptable.

No one will lose their jobs over this or anything else, because union. Expect to see quite a bit more of this in the wake of Janus. They're all Norma Rae, don'y you see?

For everyone's information, when my brother was cremated, the crematory gave me a letter, and told me to include it in my luggage if I ever carried his ashes on an airplane, and they highly recommended that I tell the agent about it, and show them the letter.

I can't say this happened with this fellow and he failed to heed it, but . . .
