    TSA

    Transportation Security Administration has confiscated 123,000 items in the first 9 months of 2009 from just the 3 main airports that serve New York City. Despite repeated warnings from the TSA, thousands of airline passengers still are attempting to board with prohibited carry-on items. Included in the confiscated items were 43 explosive items such as fire crackers, butane devices and a gassed-up chain saw. Also confiscated were 1,600 knives, several fire extinguishers, a 10-point deer antler, a tree branch, Karate nun chucks, a B-B-Q grill, a live baby alligator, and would you believe-even a kitchen sink. By far the most bizarre items the TSA confiscated were only described as, "unwashed adult toys." Nutz sez, "But they can't find explosive underwear!"

    Well, I think we should all fear the baby alligators. They can bite, and have sharp teeth!

    And exactly what danger is a 10 point deer antler?

    Unwashed adult toys? You suppose they had a regulation that allowed washed adult toys? I wonder how keeping that off protected the plane from terrorism. Never mind, the answer can't be posted here but would be a good line for the feuding late night hosts.

    Can't tell if I'm more amazed by TSAs choices in designating items contraband, or by the stuff folks try to bring on board.

    This tells me nothing. 1600 knives? They can re-define nail clippers as a knife.
    A kitchen sink is a banned item? Why? I can see where the airline might have a problem, but not the TSA.
    I once had a 4" long allen wrench, maybe 1.5mm. confiscated as a "tool".
    The chain saw might raise an eyebrow........I'll give you that one.

    But......I heard today that the CIA,FBI had intel in November that a person named Umar Farouk (part of name) was planning on using an airliner to detonate a bomb. Add to that that he bought a one way ticket, had no checked bags for an international flight, paid cash, and had been in Yemen. Still, he was able to board the plane.
    Meanwhile, Janet Napolitano is worried about the "Tea Party" protesters.

    Face it. There is no security.

    I can't wait till the screening agents get firearms. Some of these people certainly do not belong carrying shields to begin with.
    One more step and it's on!

    I think it would depend on what it is and where its put,

However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once."

    I used to work at an airport fire station when we kept an engine company there, and a bag was pulled once because it was making a suspicious noise. It turned out to be an activated personal pleasure device.

    I swear by all my credibility on the internet that it's true.

    They also confiscated one Makarov pistol when I was there, obviously communist influence. One passenger was almost admitted to the plane carrying a S&W revolver. Something about them confusing him with a LEO, perhaps a paperwork mistake? He didn't get into trouble, but I never did find out the story. The guy with the Mak did.
