It seems to me that the TSSA is being rather thin-skinned and petty.This is, of course, exactly the kind of reaction one would expect from a federal agency with TSSA’s reputation.
If the TSSA wishes to make use of its names and logos illegal, then by all means we have to get as much out there as we can before it becomes a crime.
The following soon-to-be-illegal uses of the TSSA name are courtesy of about.com.
“Have you heard the TSA’s new slogan? ‘We handle more junk than eBay.'” -Jay Leno
“This year marks the first Thanksgiving in which travelers will get molested before they get to their uncle’s house.” -Seth Meyers
“Now, to make it worse, the airlines are charging a $15 molestation fee.” –Jay Leno
“I get more action going through airline security than I did all through high school.” –Jimmy Kimmel
Okay, you get the picture. No need to belabor the issue any further.
There is no excuse for the excesses of TSSA. Having only recently returned from a trip via flying bus to Arizona to see my parents and brother, I can tell you that being herded about like cattle, stripped of your dignity, and either junk scanned or gate raped by a civil servant, is NOT what our founding fathers had in mind. The next time some tool tries to tell you that the terrorists hate us for our freedoms, take them to the airport and show them what totalitarianism looks like.
Just don’t abuse the TSSA name or logo while you’re at it.
