    Harry Reid thinks the TSA's abuses and invasions of people's privacy can be handled with a smile and a hello.

    What a friggin simpleton!:rofl:

    "Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said this week that he will soon write a letter to the Department of Homeland Security to ask that Transportation Security Administration (TSA) workers be instructed to smile and greet passengers at airports."

    Smiling while groping my groin would either be good or bad.

    Depends on the agent I guess.

    that would be bad

    I might be able to cope with the one on the right.

    The TOS prevents me from posting any pix of myself getting groped. It's always had a happy ending :whistling:

    :cool: I think he's still recovering. I'm still on version 1.0 in the cardiac arena.

    I'd give you details, but it would just sound like bragging. Well, actually, it would be bragging. :rofl:

    Considering TSA's biggest problem is the need to impress stupid people wearing tinfoil hats, maybe he figures a smile is enough to fool them.

    Harry Reid, despite most of his actions, has been a friend of gun owners.

    I went through TSA yesterday.

    As an experiment, and remembering how Israeli police had told me that 99 per cent of the way they detect potential airliner terrorists is by talking to them and observing their reactions, and listening to their answers, to certain questions, I decided to see if I could go through TSA security doing nothing to communicate or answer TSA personnel. Just staring straight ahead, saying nothing, and ignoring every question they asked, but doing whatever they said.

    Went through like a rocket.

    Then, my gate was right by TSA so I spent an hour just observing them, leaned up against a wall at the area you put your shoes back on at, while making no secret of the fact that I was doing it, waiting to see if anyone would ask me why I was doing that. Nothing, nada, not for one single hour. I couldn't say I even saw one of them notice me.

    Any guys who served in Iraq or Afghanistan, tell me what you would be thinking and doing, if you were manning a checkpoint and saw that?

    TSA = Just going through the motions. No common sense allowed.

    TSA, not the brightest America has to offer.
