There is no law saying you can’t crack a joke at the checkpoint.
The TSA constantly tries to intimidate people by claiming that there is such a law, but in fact, there isn’t.
Their little announcements, now being blared over loudspeakers, don’t change the facts. Such announcements are great, however, for compelling obedience. Just as is their little game telling you to freeze. If you don’t recognize the Orwellian nature of this, something’s wrong.
When even the TSA agents themselves admit that what they’re doing is merely window-dressing, how can you continue to believe that they’re keeping you safe?
Really, how much more proof do you need? I want to know. I’ve been asking this question for years. Yet the security cheerleaders and TSA apologists never answer it.
If The Terrorists Are Everywhere, why aren’t bombs going off left and right in all sorts of places in the country where there are no metal detectors, strip-search scanners, groping hands, or barking clerks? Hello??
