    That should set off some kind of red flag for "special screening."

    I know, right?

    Many TSA Agents look to be smart and hard-working security professionals. But there's always one or two at each check point that make you wonder--what did they do before working for the TSA?

    How does their salary compare to other law enforcement?

    TSA at LAX is backed up by LAPD, DEA, ATF, and INS Agents -- a special task force that's been around for years.

    The ones in Atlanta have all the charm and poise of your average fast food worker.

    You should always be very cautious about giving unto the government any authority which you do not wish a perfect stranger to have over you.
    What was so perfect about that guy? Or anyone in government?

    To be brutally honest, the socialist concept of Total Kontrol has failed, yet once again.

    The number of military families on food stamps is evidence of that.
    If it wasn't a reasonable rate of pay, why did the man enlist?

    If he enlisted before he was married, why did he not refrain from marriage until he could afford it?

    If TSA agents don't think they're paid enough, they're perfectly free to seek other employment.

    It doesn't take a college degree to sniff shoes and look at TV all day.

    After a certain point, it's blow off some steam or loose your shiznit, you.
    That's no excuse at all.

Actually there were a few like Clear or Flo, but I don't think any of those companies are around anymore.
    So when al queda learns of this and presents some clean young stooges to get the fast track pass, and coordinates another series of air strikes, what then?

    Run for your lives, the sky is falling!

    I think I said that I don't believe the companies are in existence anymore. Mostly due to market forces.
