- Wastes inordinate amount of money and does not do an effective job even stretching its job responsibilities outside of the United States.
- Steals from Travelers
- If you have to pick a Government to run it, it should be Israelly run…
Money spent on current TSA staff and procedures is a waste of resources and is making private companies rich off of fear-mongering
The TSA payroll includes over 67,000 employees and continues to grow. At the same time, although the TSA is a federal government organization, many privately-held, for-profit companies are making significant profits due to these security increases. Each full-body scanner costs up to $170,000, and the TSA expects to have at least 500 total machines in place by the end of 2010 – currently there are 385 in use.
This money would be much better spent on having a smaller, more highly trained staff and focusing more on intelligence gathering and less on screening.
- TSA Screening Methods are not scientifically proven (wasting both time and money!)

My question to you: Is the TSA effective and if not, what are you going to do about it? Comments welcome.
