Is the TSA Really Necessary?

A running commentary from those who favor government control is that Homeland Security and the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) are necessary for our survival as a country and as a people.


Then why is only one city in the Western Hemisphere listed in the top 64 cities worldwide that are at “extreme risk” for a terrorist attack? Oh, and that city is in Columbia (Cali, Columbia. #59).

Pro-police state folks would say that Homeland Security is the reason why no U.S. cities are in the those top 64, but that begs the question, what about the other cities in all of the other countries in the Western Hemisphere that aren’t on that list? Homeland Security and the TSA aren’t policing those countries, are they?

As The Telegraph noted, not even Paris made this list:

“Paris is ranked 97th in the world, up from 201st at the start of the year prior to the Charlie Hebdo attacks.” (hat tip to here for the source)

Add to this the TSA’s 95% failure rate when it comes to finding the very weapons they’re looking for, and it’s easy to see that the TSA is not improving safety in the U.S., much less the hemisphere.

What do you think, is the TSA just a scam to control us or is it necessary? Tell us below.

  • From bush’s beginning of the TSA, we knew it was a control scheme. It just gets worse under obama. Tell congress to get rid of it.

  • Tsa was a good idea but, as with all government institutions it is managed by people that should never have been placed in leadership positions. 25 percent of TSA are veterans, why? Because no one else will hire us! We are the retired NCOs, disabled vets, and vets that left before retirement. None of us are in charge, if we were things would be different, TSA is too in tune to trying to please everyone. Yes it needs to be abolished, just to get rid of the idiots in charge! The tests everyone now knows about are not guns and knives!they are advanced tests that explosives experts have decided to try to trick the tsos, the tests are impossible to pass. That being said I know no one that has passed these tests I currently am in Birmingham Alabama. I challenge anyone to step up and do our job! Remember airport security was private on 09/11/01.

  • Just get rid of security all togather people keep bitchin let people fly and take there chances! That way we won’t infringe on you dam freedom

  • In their present forms, both are not only useless but counter-productive. Homeland Security should be exactly that. keeping the Illegals OUT of the country, Keeping Terrorists OUT of the country. Keeping the Muslims and others who want to destroy the country instead of Join with it OUT of the country. TSA was a great idea, until the freeking brain dead morons took it in hand and turned it into a politically driven jobs program for people who lack the training, knowledge or aptitude for the job, Plus a small percentage of people who know what they should be doing but cant due to FAILED Leadership.

  • I never hated that system any more than when a big fat ignorant woman TSA employee (Detroit, MI!) held me up and nearly stripped me bare over a simple mistake to remove a complimentary water from the previous trip leg I forgot was in my bag! As a military officer veteran and one who once held a top secret clearance, I get real angry when I am targeted as a threat to American security? Just like the numbscals who harrassed Joe Foss (former governor and Medal of Honor winner) who was carrying his medal to an official ceremony.

  • tsa is, as another commenter said, a scheme to condition free people to submit to stops, questioning and “papers, please” mentality. Some people are ignorant and take the tsa seriously, while others, myself included, find them (and the phony border patrol…come back into the US at any small town and you will see) a joke…not the funny type either. As for Allen…what the hell are you talking about??? What do those goons really do that protects freedom??? “let people fly and take their chances” Because I don’t understand where you are coming from, that is exactly what I would do. In fact, if given the chance, I would fly on the airline that gave .45’s to every person that boarded for the duration of the flight…Can you say, no highjackers….

  • Dump the TSA, the IRS, the NSA, the EPA, the DHS, the Dept. of Education, the Dept. of Energy, the BLM, etc. because the are ineffective, wasteful entities in our oversize government. The do nothing to help the very purposes for which they were created and simply waste the taxpayers money while harassing and attempting to control the country. They haven’t caught a single terrorist, produced better energy, improved education (quite the contrary), provided access to our national parks and treasures (quite the contrary), secured our borders or made us safer, etc. We would be a country which would be better off and it would actually reduce our deficit while eliminating nonsense regulations and entitlements.

  • The TSA only has one purpose, and that is training to be a slave. Just as the Nazi did not immediately kill the Jews, by shooting them in the head, they train them to be obedient, by first having them do innocuous things, like forcing them in ghettoes, so they could be found easy, making them wear yellow stars, so they could be seen, and then relocate them to work camps for their safety, and then send them into communal showers for delousing and sanitation, and then sending them in one day, locking the door and gassing them,. Obedience assists in genocide.

    We are now being taught to show ID everywhere, to tolerate the records of our beliefs, thoughts and actions by the NSA, and track us with store cards, debit cards and showing ID when we buy things so we can be tracked.

    TSA teaches us to show ID, be touched improperly, and verbally harrassed and questioned while being cooperative, and be willing to be separated, even our kids, for deeper processing. This is all training for the shackle train cars, the dissident round ups, the FEMA camps, and the gas buildings that the trains can go in, for orderly genocide.

    They even have red lists and blue lists to order who needs to be killed first, and who can be used for slave labor, and then killed. Obama, keeping it classy……

  • I also just got horribly harassed a couple weeks ago while flying back into the States. There were 2 different stations where I was questioned. I asked why they were asking so many personal questions (about 50 or more rapid fire personal questions). They wouldn’t tell me anything except, very arrogantly, that they had the authority to ask me anything they wanted to.

    The 1st guy was actually yelling at me, saying, “You’re coming into the United States of America and you don’t think I have the authority to ask you personal questions!” Then he said, “What? Don’t you guys have jobs? Don’t you work or anything?” I replied, “No, I don’t think you have the authority.” Then he really got mad. Reminded me of Nazi Germany. What business is it of his whether I work or not. By the way, I do work, and very hard, but it is actually none of his business. Where did this authority come from? Who gave them this authority to dig into my personal life and harass me? I am a US citizen with a clean record.

    Some questions asked were:

    Where did I come from, what was I doing there, how much money was I carrying, was I traveling alone, where was my husband, why didn’t he come back with me, when is he coming back, is my husband coming back at all, where are my children, where do my children live, what do I do for a career, why don’t i do it anymore, what does my husband do, am I going home, if not, then where am I going to be staying, etc.

    Yes, the TSA is an ugly, intimidating scam to try to scare us into blind submission. Abolish it!

  • I think that everything typed was very logical. However, what about this? suppose you added a little information? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added something that grabbed people’s attention? I mean BLOG_TITLE is kinda vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news headlines to get viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get people interested about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.|
