16. I rarely fly and when I do, I dread it. The TSA
morons wouldn't be able to spot a terrorist if one bit them in the ass. But, they are hired because they will work for cheap and because they are major, major assholes who thoroughly enjoy being able to harrass the public for fun. I've seen a 90 year old women with dementia being hoisted out of her wheelchair to be "wanded." I've observed a little kid having his teddy bear yanked away to be swabbed with chemicals. I've had my bra felt up for no reason whatever. It's huge, huge bullshit - and never fails to amaze me how the public just goes along with it as though it's serving some sort of useful function. It isn't.
