Read this funny excerpt, sent via email to me by Ron, about the TSA (who routinely searches my family top to toe at the airport):

"Chuck Muth's News & Views, March 31, 2008"

TSA WHISPERING SWEET NOTHINGS IN OUR EAR

Without question, if every American received a tax bill at the end of the year instead of having a "little" bit deducted from each paycheck, we'd have a revolt on our hands that would make the Boston Tea Party look like, well, a tea party.

And that's apparently the motivation behind a new reform at my least favorite governmental operation - other than the IRS - the Transportation Security Administration, or TSA. These are the government bureaucrats who strip search babies and grannies while letting 22-year-old Johnny Jihadis walk right through the airport for fear of being accused of "profiling."

Well, it seems the natives are getting restless. More and more people are reaching their breaking point with the interminably long lines at the security checkpoints - "Papers, please" - and the stupidity of having their mouthwash and toothpaste confiscated.

If the TSA isn't careful, the masses may just rise up and demand that Congress undo this mess they created - all in the name of "security" after 9-11, of course.So get this.According to USA Today, TSA chief Kip Hawley intends to put airline passengers in the proper mood for having their liberties assaulted at those airport checkpoints. The paper says Hawley believes that "serenity adds security."

Therefore, beginning in May at the airport formerly known as BWI in Baltimore, herded airline passengers will find "mauve lights" glowing softly while "soothing music hums" in the background as "smiling employees offer quiet greetings and assistance."Apparently, the only thing missing will be candlelight and a fine bottle of wine.

If a man sets a similar stage for a woman at his home, you pretty much know exactly what he has on his mind.

Apparently, so does the TSA - if you know what I mean, and I think you do.

Isn't there anyone in Congress willing to say enough is enough begin the process of dismantling this idiotic, multi-billion dollar bureaucratic nightmare brought to us by George W. Bush and the Republicans? Anyone?
