The morons and perverts who grope passengers at airports are all a-twitter because for the first time ever, their bosses have “ratified a collective bargaining agreement with the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE).” This “contract… was in negotiation for about a year…” And what did that momentous palaver accomplish, aside from rooking taxpayers out of yet more money for these leeches (whose “uniform allowances [will] nearly double to $446 per year”; one astute analyst points out that they’ll “get to spend [sic for ‘waste’] more taxpayer money on their uniforms every year than a United States Marine Corps lieutenant can spend in a lifetime”)? It “sets policies in areas including scheduling of shifts and vacation time, uniform allowances and dress codes.” Yes, no molehill is too small for the unions to inflate to mountainous proportions: your sexual assailant may now wear shorts while he gate-rapes you.
Given the size and downright ugliness of the TSA’s shirkforce, shorts may well spell the agency’s end as passengers flee airports in sheer revulsion. Ancient Greece with its Gorgons had nothing on the TSA and LaWanda’s thunder-thighs.
Meanwhile, the agency’s victims can wage their own fashion war with a T-shirt reading, “I got to second base with a TSA screener.” Primae noctis, here we come! (Thanks to Michael for the link.)2:54 pm on November 11, 2012 Email Becky Akers
