TSA: Knives OK?

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) – a post-9/11 bureaucracy which was created in response to a terrorist attack launched with small knives – is once again allowing small knives on board commercial flights.

Say huh?

That’s right … blades shorter than six centimeters (or 2.36 inches) will be permitted on passenger jets beginnning April 25 according to new “carry-on regulations” promulgated by the agency.

Hmmmm … we don’t get it. This agency has been molesting Americans and subjecting them to dangerous radiation for the better part of the last decade in an effort to prevent precisely these sorts of weapons from winding up on commercial jetliners.

Now it’s going to let these weapons back on board these planes?

“This is part of an overall risk-based security approach, which allows Transportation Security officers to better focus their efforts on finding higher-threat items such as explosives,” TSA administrator John Pistole said in announcing the change.

Astounding …

This website supports the right of Americans to bear arms wherever they want – and we believe the ability of passengers to protect themselves is far more likely to deter violence than incite it.

But knives on planes? Really, TSA? We’re not knocking it, but what’s the point of all that government-subsidized groping (and peeping) if this is going to be the government’s policy moving forward?

And does this mean we can bring our toothpaste on board again?

They made the decision so you’d have another trivial point to bitch and moan about. I mean, really, your self-righteous schtick is totally dependent on someone feeding you another trivial topic to whine about.

The only thing more boring is the drivel of his “water boys.”

You can carry a knife as long as you still agree to be molested. Yay, freedom!

This “agency” is nothing more than a new gestapo. They are getting us ready for the real crackdown, when they stop us on highways, and cme into our homes to molest our wives and daughters. Numerous government teams that test these TSA checkpoints have managed to get guns, explosives, and the like aboard planes-but you don’t hear about these. This unconstitutional travesty should be dismantled. F*** the TSA……

The 911 terrorists used box cutters, not Swiss Army keychain knives. Besides, it’s all just security theater anyway.

Well, I’m just glad I won’t lose yet another Swiss Army Knife or Leatherman to TSA anymore… (at least 6 and counting)

I’ve done this move in the picture before. But my penis wasn’t wearing a blue glove, it’s a bit pointless when the goal is to make your “loved” one a frosted donut and there’s no risk of a baby.

I’ve always been concerned that I carry a 14 inch stick between my legs. It’s not a threat however.
