Most of the airline employees have done whatever they could to snipe at TSA from the start, blaming the Federal screeners for losing their friends among the private screener force, and resenting the loss of control over security that the airlines experienced after 9/11. It was airlines that insisted that box cutters be allowed on planes, the better for their passengers to open peanut bags.
When the Feds took over, the airlines were still given input to security procedures, but they were no longer the last word.
Do Burger King employees take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution? How many Burger King employees do you know that go through a week-long, pass it or get fired re-qualification every six months? For that matter, how often are you youself formally tested, under threat of termination, on your competence at your essential job skills? Or do you work for McDonald’s?
I’m trying to be polite here, because this is Misha’s house. Normally, I just give assholes ignorant enough to make a hamburger reference the back of my hand. Consider yourself lucky.]]>
