On the one hand, I appreciate any attempt to cut the budget*. Really, it’s a big step for any politician to even say they want to cut funding. I don’t actually expect them to do it, but it’s nice when they mouth the words. And making us pay directly to the TSA is a brilliant way to anger Americans enough for them to rise up against the TSA. On the other hand, I don’t want to give the TSA more money. Why haven’t we gotten rid of them yet?
The last quote slays me:
“As long as it improves passenger safety,” said Ben Herrick, an engineer from Boxboro, “I’m pretty much OK with it.”
Poor, poor deluded man.
*Except NASA. Leave NASA alone. Give them a raise!
