TSA is a Waste of Time and Money

I recall seeing that exposé a year or so ago showing that undercover agents working for the Department of Homeland Security were able to smuggle weapons and bomb-making materials through TSA checkpoints with a success rate of 95%. This article (link) makes a great point that TSA is mostly just something to make us all feel better about a very rare occurrence. This is in addition to the fact that a large portion of the TSA agents I encounter tend to be loud-mouthed and condescending pricks. Yes, I know not all of them are like that, but I have never taken a trip that involved traveling through a U.S. airport where I didn’t encounter one.
