Bloviating Zeppelin: TSA = Joseph McCarthy

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

TSA = Joseph McCarthy


Communists were banned by Joseph McCarthy.

Dissenters are banned by the TSA.

So because some chick has the temerity to point out the obvious, that the Emperor actually has no clothes, she is banned by TSA from flying?

Just how does that happen?

OKLAHOMA CITY -- The woman who made national headlines for her near-naked protest at the airport in Oklahoma City is back and once again banned from flying.

A YouTube video put Tammy Banovac in the national spotlight. Banovac says she went through security wearing next-to-nothing, to protest new security rules at airports nationwide.


Is anyone besides me thinking that most of this crap has long-ago exceeded the boundaries of logic and common sense?

Banovac was back at the Will Rogers Airport Tuesday (12-28-10) and once again, security says she can't board her flight back home to Phoenix.

Last month security denied her access because they said they found traces of nitrate somewhere on her body.

Now, it's something near her bottom that is raising a red flag.

"The stated reason was there was... They were unable to clear an unusual contour of my buttocks area," said Banovac.

Tammy wouldn't say what the unusual contour was, but says she's sleeping at the airport. She was told she would be allowed to board her flight home Wednesday morning.


And the absurdities just keep on coming.

Isn't this just kind of bordering on some iteration of byzantine Kabuki Theatre?

P.S.
The major difference between Joseph McCarthy and the TSA?

Russian records, opened following the fall of the Berlin Wall, indicate that McCarthy was correct.

The TSA is clearly not.

Mostly they don't display the common sense that God gave the average houseplant.

The conservatives need to borrow a slogan from the anarchists, "Resist Authority".

I can recall, WSF, two very prevalent bumper stickers one would customarily see on VW transporter buses in the 70s:

1. QUESTION AUTHORITY

and

2. DISCO IS TO MUSIC AS ETCH-A-SKETCH IS TO ART

1 & 2: correct.

Maybe I should just stop harping on TSA.

Overheard on the radio today:
More and more airports are considering privatizing security.
The more we cry foul BZ, the closer sane thinking on this issue is.
Keep it up.

With an apparently nice figure, what does Ms. Bonavac do for a living?
