Full Frontal Nudity Doesn’t Make Us Safer: Abolish the TSA
In the spirit of bipartisanship and sanity, I propose that the first thing on the chopping block should be an ineffective organization that wastes money, violates our rights, and encourages us to make decisions that imperil our safety. I’m talking about the Transportation Security Administration.
Bipartisan support should be immediate. For fiscal conservatives, it’s hard to come up with a more wasteful agency than the TSA. For privacy advocates, eliminating an organization that requires you to choose between a nude body scan or genital groping in order to board a plane should be a no-brainer.
Charles Peña calls the TSA the Theater Security Administration because of their
security measures that make people feel more secure without doing anything to actually improve their security
James Pethokoukis should add abolishing the TSA to his budget-balancing measures.
Meanwhile, the TSA is investigating John Tyner.
But don’t worry. Janet Napolitano assures us this is for our own good.
