Just 2 point out the sheer pointlessness of the TSA: back in the day, there was airport security, local airport security. No over-the-top invasive searches n patdowns, no overpriced, untested, DANGEROUS equipment. And it worked. for all the decades it existed it worked. Considering there were only 2 terrorist attacks against the US, and neither 1 possible strictly by a failure of airport security, I can't wrap my head around the existence of the TSA 4 as long as it has.
