I share this news reluctantly: Your Intrepid Reporter considered sitting on this nugget, incorporating herself, and reaping the windfall of 30 million fascist dollars the TSA’s offering. Alas, principle kicked in. I shall make my fortune some honest way whilst publicizing the horrific grammar and latest crimes of Our Rulers.
Seems the Thieves and Sexual Assailants want “a company to conduct training for [their] Inter-Modal Security and Training Exercise Program (I-Step).” And they are “exclusively” recruiting said trainer from the “economically disadvantaged woman owned small business (EDWOSB [yep, no jargon is complete without an unwieldy acronym]) industry”; milady will “continuously improve the risk posture of the transportation systems serving the nation” (I’ve helpfully added all emphases in case Our Rulers also wish to continuously improve their grammar. Yo, Tyrants: nouns do not modify other nouns).
And why? Because bureaucracies “are required to set quotas for hiring EDWOSBs by the Small Business Act, which was enacted in January … [and] sets government-wide goals that at least 23 percent of all contracts must be awarded to businesses owned by service-disabled veterans, ‘socially and economically disadvantaged individuals,’ and women.” Recall, if you will, the TSA’s constant claim that security is so overriding a concern its goons must molest you and your children while photographing everyone naked. So you might think it would merely hire the best, most rigorous teachers it could find. But no. In the State’s pantheon, social engineering trumps the god of “national security.”
At any rate, you now see why I was momentarily tempted: wouldn’t you love to instruct these cretins?! “No, LaWanda, you are not groping anyone ever again. You are instead going to demolish the checkpoints and, once you pass your exams, TSA’s HQ. Listen up, class: you’ll want the biggest sledgehammer you can find…”9:58 am on December 19, 2013 Email Becky Akers
