Great Job, TSA!

So in the news today. . . our TSA hard at work. While looking through luggage they found a woman’s vibrator and couldn’t help themselves when putting in the official note that states they opened your luggage to inspect also included an extra penned note saying “Get Your Freak On Girl”.

I’m guessing the person who wrote it, male or female never thought through all the repercussions,thinking either they were kind of offering a sense of Girl Power camaraderie, or being funny. But in this time of immediacy of media coverage, the little stunt has blown sky-high.

Wow, how inappropriate and creepy. The woman involved is tossing out said “Silver Bullet” vibrator, no wonder. Would you want something so intimate to have been touched, leered over and even commented on by strangers?

Interesting fact, you can put a firearm in your luggage, but it must be in a locked container and separated from ammunition. Why is it that these “creepy people” found the vibrator yet missed a loaded gun not in locked container? Details, details. I don’t know about you, but this just brings home the fact that the TSA program should be in question.

I still do not want to be felt up when I fly, nor have young children touched. The smoke and mirrors of the safety issues involved in our paranoia of flight by our Government have been shown to be a little “under question” don’t you think?
