The “Essential” TSA: Ignoring Terrorists to Grope Us

Written by 

Last week’s shut-down charade proved yet again how vast a gulf separates us from the sociopaths in office. For starters, who among us would hire even one “non-essential” worker, let alone 800,000 of them? Close to a million sponges soaking up our money for activities their employer readily admits are superfluous.

That’s depressing enough, and a persuasive plea for revolution: when the colonists went to war over “swarms of officers … harass[ing] our people and eat[ing] out their substance,” the parasites numbered considerably less than 800,000. (Estimates put England’s population in the 1770s at about 6.4 million; its American colonies added another 3 million souls. So even if the British Empire employed the enormous proportion of bloodsuckers the Amerikan one does, we’re talking 94,000 bums, tops.)
