    Major US Airport To Evict TSA Screeners

    Major US Airport To Evict TSA Screeners
    Wednesday, March 14, 2012

    "Orlando Sanford International, has announced it will opt out of using TSA workers to screen passengers...

    With Sanford International having originally been prevented by the TSA from opting out back in November 2010 when the federal agency froze the ability for airports to use their own private screeners, a law passed by the Senate last month forces the TSA to reconsider applications."

    Senate Passes Bill Allowing Airports To Evict TSA Screeners
    Tuesday, February 7, 2012

    "The Senate has passed legislation that includes a provision allowing airports to replace TSA screeners with private security..

    Should airports choose to replace TSA screeners with their own private security, it would not only mean the screeners were better trained and more responsible for their actions, alleviating the problems of thefts and abuse by TSA workers, but it would also create tens of thousands of much needed jobs for the private sector.

    ...contract security personnel are more courteous than government workers,"

    Re: TSA To Get The Boot - Free Market Beats Central Government Control

    I like the idea of TSA being kicked out of airports.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Only to be replaced by a TSA for profit?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    They're going to have to follow the same laws, so I don't see how it's going to make much difference.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Dude, there are certain goods and services called PUBLIC GOODS that the government can and should provide instead of the private market. Now we can debate whether or not that is the case when it comes to airport security (I personally am rather wary of putting issues of security in any private hands, but that's another discussion), but having the TSA, much like having a publicly-funded and operated military, does not make a nation socialist.

    I fail to see what this has to do with socialism.

    It's a great thing, however. Immediate accountability instead of union rules. Sounds good to me.

    I also fail to see what any of this has to do with the free market. As airports are usually owned by local and state governments, the private security firms are merely being handed government contracts.

    I don't understand your post, SB. If TSA-type security is out-sourced, that supports the free market, yes? But I don't even "get" why free market is relevant here...

    By free-market, I am referring purely to the supply and demand dynamics of the private sector. Outsourcing a government job has little to do with the free market. The government is merely replacing its own employees with someone else's. It's still public-sector spending.

    If this is about anything, it's neither about socialism nor the free market, but the tension between state and federal governments.

    Edit: To make my point more clear, Maggie, compare this situation to the following one:

    Say, for instance, that the US federal government stops handing mail delivery through the USPS, and turns that role ENTIRELY to the private sector, and let Fedex and UPS handle the mail. THAT would be an instance of the private market performing a duty that it can do better than the government. There is an unsubtle difference between the government turning over one of its duties to the private sector, and simply outsourcing its jobs to a contractor. In one case, the government abandons its role altogether. In the other, it is still performing a role, but merely using outside labor.
