Oh, the Virtues of Abolition!

In what has by now become a habit, the TSA bombed its latest round of undercover tests. This time, though, the rate of failure was only 80% rather than the 95% of a few years ago.

These grim results monopolized a Congressional hearing today. And in what has also become a habit, Our Rulers clutched at various straws that will supposedly reform and improve the unspeakable TSA. New equipment, better training of the agency’s pedophiles and thieves, the ever-elusive magic bullet: both the TSA’s chief crook and whitewasher and the congresscriminals trotted out the same tired lunacy they’ve floated since 2001. But of course, nothing ever changes.

Which, as we all know, is the popular definition of “insanity”: doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results. I trust none of us needs additional proof that politicians and bureaucrats are certifiably bonkers. but if so, here it is.
