FOR OUR TIMES from Michael Yon. Let this be a lesson to you: when Democrats propose “professionalizing” an activity by turning it into a government-union sinecure, DON’T. LET. THEM. DO. IT!
When the TSA and DHS were first proposed, I then and there vowed I would never fly commercially again until their charters were once again rescinded and the pre-existing constituent agencies of DHS were returned to their proper places in the status quo ante.
The whole mess demonstrated and continues to demonstrate that the Feds are no serious about security, just covering their own asses by being seen to be doing something.
