TSA Doing Spot Checks on Buses

TSA has been doing random searches on the MBTA trains and subways for a few years now. Every once in a while they’ll show up at my train station and randomly select people to rifle through their bags. Only one small problem. There are three entrances to the train platform. TSA only does spot checks on the main one. I enter through a side one and bypass them completely.

But I’m sure that if a terrorist was to bomb a train, he wouldn’t slink through on a side exit but head right for the TSA agents. So we’re safe.

VA. Lawmaker Claims Pat-Downs Part of ‘Homosexual Agenda’

Right side of the argument, wrong side of the sanity.

WASHINGTON – A conservative Loudoun County lawmaker says controversial airport pat-downs by the Transportation Security Administration are part of a “wide-scale homosexual agenda.”

Eugene Delgaudio, a Republican representing Sterling on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, made the comments in a widely distributed e-mail sent in his capacity as president of the conservative nonprofit Public Advocate of the United States.

In the e-mail — reported by WUSA9 — Delgaudio also says the TSA’s non-discrimination hiring policy is “the federal employee’s version of the Gay Bill of Special rights.”

“That means the next TSA official that gives you an enhanced pat-down could be a practicing homosexual secretly getting pleasure from your submission,” he wrote.
