TSA, please go away. You’re being more of a hindrance than a help to US citizens.

There comes a time when we have to say “Okay, this simply isn’t working.” And that time has arrived for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). We need a new plan. American citizens themselves have been responsible for stopping the only two serious terrorist threats in the air since 9/11. The only thing the TSA has accomplished is making it incredibly inconvenient for law abiding citizens to fly. Personally, at this point, I go out of my way not to fly because it’s so aggravating of a process. I’m sure I’m not alone.

Now I’ve heard that they’ve implemented full body X-rays similar to what was used in Total Recall. Ignoring the privacy invasion part of that, I shudder to imagine the health risks to the frequent business flier. Seriously, we can do better. Let’s scrap the TSA and build a new system from the ground up. They haven’t really accomplished anything besides making our life more difficult.
