(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.

The TSA: BILLIONS of your invested tax dollars DEFEATED by a blogger: - How To Get Anything Through TSA Nude Body Scanners Video

And the TSA apparently couldn't see this coming?

From the UKDailyMailOnline (because I frequently can't find various important issues covered by the US press):

Controversial nude body scanners used at U.S. airports have come under fire again - after a blogger claimed he could easily smuggle explosives through them onto a plane.

Engineer Jonathan Corbett has published a video where he shows how he took a small metal case through two of the TSA's $1billion fleet in a special side pocket stitched into his shirt.

This is because, he suggests, the scanners blend metallic areas into the dark background - so if an object is not directly placed on the body, it will not show up on the scan.

The metallic box, he claims, would have set off an alarm had he passed through the old detecting system.

His revelation comes just weeks after Europe banned the 'airport strip-searches' over fears the X-ray technology could cause cancer.

MailOnline has decided not to publish the video because it details exactly how to circumvent the safety procedure - but it is freely available to watch online.

Jonathan Corbett's blog is here. That "forbidden" video is also available there. If -- following governmental and/or YouTube exclusions de-link -- then the transcript of the video is available at the link as well.

The most salient point? To wit:

While Corbett's actions have not been independently verified, and the TSA have not commented on the video, he said it proved the organisation's 'disregard for safety'.

He added: 'Now, I’m sure the TSA will accuse me of aiding the terrorists by releasing this video, but it’s beyond belief that the terrorists haven’t already figured this out and are already plotting to use this against us.

'It’s also beyond belief that the TSA did not already know everything I just told you, and arrogantly decided to disregard our safety. The nude body scanner program is nothing but a giant fraud.'

As you already know, much of America consists of smoke, mirrors and emotions. If government can get you to FEEL better about an issue it -- mostly, for the brain-dead amongst us -- has already won.

TSA: smoke and mirrors.

And a final question: just HOW MANY terrorists have been captured by the TSA, as opposed to ordinary citizens, for example, on flights already in the air?

Right. None.

YouTube deleted the video. I included it here. If I can find it, so can anyone else.

YouTube is Leftist and still falls back on their motto of DO NO HARM.

Do no harm?

Another layer of protection gone. No more armed flight crews because the funding to administer the program has been dropped.

So happy I no longer work a job that requires commercial travel.

I'm amazed, after all these years, the the American public is still giving in to what we are subjected to by the TSA.

Searches done in order to not offend a certain group of people who have the desire to board planes with the desire to kill and maim others.

We all know what the profile is of those that participate in these actions. We've known for well over 30 years.

It's well overdue and it's time to dismantle what the TSA is and create something that reflects the real circumstances of why we need airport security. What we're getting now is another waste of our tax money!

TSA has been and will continue to nothing more than a fraud. They neither have the training nor the experience to do competent job. You get what you pay for....anyone who has a fairly clean background is qualified to be a TSA wanna be Federal Agent. # years ago I stopped a TSA Agent for speeding while he was in uniform. In the process of issuing him a citation, he boldly said.."I am a "FEDERAL AGENT" and I am late for work, don't I get a break?

Don't get me wrong not all TSA people are people are BOZO'S, just the vast majority.

Help....we are drowning in stupidity,TSA is a wasted program
