Today’s Laugh — and a Belly One at That!

Since most of the actual terrorists out there busy themselves in Congress, the White House, courthouses, and bureaucracies across the country, as well as various states’ capitals, there’s a dearth of ‘em at airports. Ergo, the TSA has long manufactured its own in an effort to justify its existence. Yes, it has its blue-gloved perverts, but I’m referring to another phenomenon: It pretends that passengers who’ve forgotten the “contraband” at the bottom or in an obscure compartment of their bags are intent on committing another 9/11, especially if said contraband is an oh-so-politically-incorrect gun.

But apparently folks are catching on that if we are indeed one of the TSA’s vaunted “layers of security,” as its nincompoops claim, a loaded gun might come in handy. So the TSA has added a new twist to the dangers weapons pose if passengers rather than Our Rulers wield them. When the TSA “stopped” a “Pennsylvania man … at Buffalo Niagara International Airport … today as he attempted to carry a loaded .380-caliber handgun onto a flight,” its spokesliar deftly hyped the threat: “A bullet was in the chamber and someone could have been severely hurt if the bag fell to the floor [sic for 'if our dumb and destructive thugs dropped the bag as they did some cremains last week'] and the bullet was fired [sic for 'the gun discharged thanks to our goons' carelessness and shot one of them in the foot']… But our officers are out there doing a tough job.

Yeah, I added the emphasis. Just too good, isn’t it?
