TSA’s kids’ video

I was a bit surprised when I saw that TSA has a kids’ video, and was getting ready for a good laugh. But it’s actually not bad. I especially like the fact that all the characters are dogs, and the one dog is wearing lipstick, so you know she’s a lady dog.

Granted, the video is ripe for parody, and I mean RIPE. Hopefully we’ll be seeing that one soon :)

    More like ‘Stop, wait, wait, wait some more, be yelled at by a surly screener for failing to follow their mumbled instructions, wait, wait, be pulled out of line for a ‘random’ groping, be screened, have some innocuous item which made it through dozens of trips before suddenly be confiscated this time, screen, go… no wait, there’s another line with more screening… and then another over there by the jetway…’

    Except when it doesn’t. Today, in the Orlando airport on the way home, TSA raced us through security because of the crowds. One cursory look at my boarding pass. Did not have to take off my shoes, jacket or belt. Did not have to take anything out of my bag. Did not have to go through the porno scanner, just the metal detector. Funny, I got home just as safe as if I had been half-strip searched and had all of my possessions scattered in four grey bins.

    This article, from Cracked.com of all places, says it all.

    I have said and I believe, that the TSA is not really about making us safe or protecting us…it is to get us used to complying with being searched without a warrant. They have put metal detectors in many schools – teaching our young people to comply with a warrant-less search, they have given them badges to teach them to comply with having ID that you must show on demand.

    I agree with GarySFBCN below – those who give up freedom for safety…scare the crap out of me. Really – you think you are safe? No you are not any safer because someone “frisked” you or your children – but you are more compliant and you are learning to behave…and then when you call the police for help with a mentally ill child or spouse and the police shoot them dead because they are non-compliant you will feel good about the outcome.

    I have been more and more afraid since the Bush Administration and frankly, under President Obama I am not feeling any better.

    EDITED: Putting back on my tin foil hat and moving along!

    Reminds me of the “Playmobil Security Check Point” toy on Amazon. Be sure to check out the comments, like this one:

    “Finally a toy that gets our kids used to living in a police state. Benjamin Franklin said that those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. But then again, he lived in France for awhile, so what did he know about anything.”
