Way To Go, TSA...!

It just another example of some of the blunders by the clowns of the TSA, here is a great story highlighting the "common sense" of their employees!

I would be ashamed to work at a place where things like this are a daily occurrence! I wonder why they can't find folks a little more mature to fill those so-called jobs?

TSA agent 'plays around' with pepper spray, shoots other screeners

An accident-prone agent proved you can't spell "caustic liquid" without "T-S-A" on Tuesday afternoon at JFK Airport in New York. Chris Yves Dabel found a canister of pepper spray on the floor in Terminal 2 and, according to other agents, believed it was a laser pointer. "[Dabel and other agents] were playing around with it," an airport official said. Dabel eventually figured out how to aim the aerosol can and accidentally shot five TSA agents with pepper spray, an idiotic incident that sent all of them to the hospital. The fact that Dabel could've given his co-workers (or outbound passengers) chemical burns is ridiculous, but so is the fact that a working TSA agent doesn't know what a can of pepper spray looks like.

It's scary to think these guys are part of our country's security system. Somehow I just don't feel any more secure after reading this, ya know?

Let's have coffee out on the patio today. I'll make some fried apple pies!

It's that quality government training that allows them to be so expert in what they do!

That's what happens when you hire people who can't hack being a real cop.

Ah - and these idiots have jobs - figures they work for the government!
Apple pie? Yummy - be right there!

These are the same caliber of people that can't get your order right at the donut shop. They make about the same amount of money and are as badly trained.

I have actually quit flying because of the TSA. I think they all are a bunch of boso's with humongous ego's. They let the power given to them go to their heads, which meant their brains sunk down to their a--. So this article somehow doesn't surprise me as to how stupid they really are. It is very scary that these idiots are what is supposed to be protecting us. Have a great weekend.

Morning HJ, when I read that story a while back I must admit I was glad they weren't playing with guns. Eh?

Weather is warming up a bit here and we are glad for that.

Yep. This article just kinda sums it up doesn't it? The fact that an organization as incompetent, worthless and corrupt exists and under the premise of "keeping us safe", and for the most part people accept it, just shows hope messed up this country is. Wait a minute...those adjectives also describe our Congress!! Hhmmmm.

JO said...

Are they sure his name isn't Dumbell. I'm so glad I don't fly.

I'll bring some fresh ground coffee to the table.

Sad part is...this is probably the cream of the crop!

Many thanks for the visit this morning!



Hey Sixbears...
Whatever they are getting paid, it's too much!

Sounds to me like some extra training is in order!

Thanks for coming by today!



Hey Linda...
I never have liked to fly, but now I won't for sure! These folks are just too thick!

Scary, indeed! Thanks for coming over this morning!



Hey JMD...
Isn't that the truth? I can only imagine the outcome!

Glad your weather is finally warming up!

Thanks for the visit today!



Hey Anne...
It's scary for sure...and shows no signs of changing anytime soon!

I appreciate you coming over!



Hey Jo...

Thanks, buddy, for coming over today!

Just think, WE ARE ALLOWING the TSA with these people to continue.

Billy Bob said...

I'm wondering if this pepper spray that sent these TSA agents to the hospital is the same spray used by our police on innocent citizens....and then place them in the back seat of a cop car with no treatment at all.

HermitJim said...

Hey Rob...
Makes you wonder why we don't start screaming, doesn't it?

Bunch of idiots working there, it seems!

Thanks for coming over today!



Hey Billy Bob...
Guess he couldn't read, or else he would have known it was pepper spray! Probably the same stuff!

Many thanks for dropping by today!
