Naturally, the Thieves Are the Lowest of Lying Cowards, Too (Becky Akers)

The TSA strikes yet again: A woman hoping to fly from Boston's Logan Airport to Chicago for a christening reports that one of its thugs at the checkpoint "holds my backpack up, and um, says there's a water bottle in this backpack, I'm going to have to take that." Literally: The thug "left the area with [the] bag."
The passenger, Terri Ivester, "says she continued through the security checkpoint and she never gave it another thought until she got dressed for the christening. 'I'm ready to put on my jewelry and I can't find it,' she says. She realized she was missing four pieces including a single strand of pearls and a double strand bracelet totaling $3,700. 'It had gone through the scanner, I think they saw the jewels and took them,' says Ivester."
Naturally, this is all the victim's fault -- and yours if you flew out of Logan that day, according to the TSA. One of its propagandists announced that "passengers have the right to stay with their bags," while the agency admonished Ms. Ivester and the rest of us serfs ""¦you should keep a close eye on your belongings." (Wanna bet the lady would be languishing in a cage now had she attempted to follow the thief out of the checkpoint? Or had she even voiced a bit of doubt: "Hey, where are you going with my bag?") But then Goebbels increases the insult by explaining why the TSA has paid a mere $3000 towards $60,000-worth of claims filed at the airport since last year: ""¦closed circuit cameras often reveal items are stolen by other passengers."
When will we rise against these thieves, perverts, pedophiles and liars and drive them from our shores?
