    Could I add that this is another in the endless list of examples about why we should not entrust ANYTHING to a government agency.

    Doesn't that apply to all civilian agencies?

    The tsa is one of the prime reasons I will never fly commercial again, they are further proof that terrorists are winning.

    Guess I can wipe that item off the Christmas list. A foul smelling act by the TSA. A leftist movement in action. The paper work is never done!

    TSA deserves to feel cheeky. They found a toilet paper holder after all. Job well done. See what minimum wage will get you?

    My favorite TSA story is they held me up after going through the line and put my bag back through twice. I asked them, "Can you tell me what you're looking for? We could speed this up." But they wouldn't tell me. Finally, they found the "dangerous object," a harmonica, which was in a side pocket that was not easy to find. The supervisor handed it to me and told me, like it was my fault, that on X-ray, it looked like a "clip" for a .22 pistol and in future I should put in the tub on the conveyor belt.

    I hate flying.
    About 5 years ago the wife and I were flying back home from a wedding in Minnesota.
    I had a flask a little less than half full of a very nice single malt I had forgot to put in the checked bags.
    Well the wing nut at security spotted it and asked what it was I told him. He smelled it and told me I could not carry it on.
    Said I had the option to mail it or leave it.
    I came up with a third option.
    I guzzled it right there.
    Asked him if we were good to go.
    He started laughing and waved me on.
    Slept the whole way home

    Just another p***ing contest. We have the authority to do so, common sense and reasoning be damned!

    And I wonder who would be stupid enough not to pack it in checked luggage?
    I am careful with my carry on, been doing this for too long.

    I wonder if the TSA has finished teaching their employees that both the District of Columbia, and New Mexico are in fact in the United States.
    We get the government we deserve.
