Just wanted to pass on a little story about the caliber of people hired by the TSA. I am a retired military police NCO, I have been involved with security operations for all sorts of people up to and including the Vice President of the United States. I have familiarity with most other equipment that the current screeners use to screen passengers. I have supervised and established security procedures for these operations.
After 9-11 I placed in my application to become a TSA screener or supervisor. I wanted to help my country again, and since I couldn’t solider, this seemed a good idea. I never received a call back.
My brother who is two years younger and was in rehab for alcoholism, put his request in and he got called in for an interview, and hasn’t done any security or police work in over thirty years.
I have heard similar stories, so in the normal fashion of big government, instead of the best and brightest the public got what they deserved.p>Understand I am not bitter about not getting the call back. After hearing the stories I have heard about TSA, I would never want to be associated with such and organization. br> — SFC Kenneth E. Miller USA (RET) br> Tonica, IL /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
