    ....a decade after the TSA was created following the September 11 attacks, the author of the legislation that established the massive agency grades its performance at “D-.”

    “The whole program has been hijacked by bureaucrats,” said Rep. John Mica (R. -Fla.), chairman of the House Transportation Committee.

    “It mushroomed into an army,” Mica said. “It’s gone from a couple-billion-dollar enterprise to close to $9 billion.”

    As for keeping the American public safe, Mica says, “They’ve failed to actually detect any threat in 10 years.”

    “Everything they have done has been reactive. They take shoes off because of [shoe-bomber] Richard Reid, passengers are patted down because of the diaper bomber, and you can’t pack liquids because the British uncovered a plot using liquids,” Mica said.

    “It’s an agency that is always one step out of step,” Mica said.

    It cost $1 billion just to train workers, which now number more than 62,000, and “they actually trained more workers than they have on the job,” Mica said.

    “The whole thing is a complete fiasco,” Mica said.

    I think a good place to start is to ask for Mica to resign. He's the loser who proposed this idea.

    BINGO!

    The departments of education and energy, among many others, should go as well.
     
  7. Another Bush disaster.

    Wonder if this will come up at the republican debate tonight? Wonder if the moderators will allow anyone other than the media-approved candidates, Romney, Perry and Hunstman, to actually say anything?


    I guess the media realized they made a big mistake allowing Bachmann to speak at the debate in NH. It shows just what can happen when you let voters hear everyone and make up their own minds. They certainly don't want to make that mistake again.

    Bush wasn't smart enough to cook any of this stuff up, even if it was a disaster. This is the work of the rest of those stinkin' lowlife neocons that have been around since Watergate. It looks like some are in the democratic party also. This country needs someone like Ron Paul. though the electorate appears too stupid and brainwashed to get him over the hump.
