When the Transportation Safety Administration first began after 9/11, it was reported that their motto was “Dominate, Intimidate, Control.”
Except of course that TSA is remarkably ineffective at that last part, and the first two elements of the formula only P.O.ed the vast majority of peaceful, innocent passengers. But blogger “Missred Muses” has come up with what a brilliant proposal for ending airborne terrorism that what change the T.S.A. formula just slightly, and since it would be applied to everyone, shouldn’t make America’s de facto state religion feel too singled-out:
Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before? A really neat solution heh?
Here’s a solution to all the controversy over full-body scanners at airports.
Have a booth that you can step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on you.
It would be a win-win situation for everyone and would eliminate this crap about racial profiling. This method would also obviate the need for a long and expensive trial. Justice would be quick and swift.
This is so simple that it’s brilliant.
I can just see it now: You’re in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion. Shortly thereafter, an announcement comes over the PA system, “Attention standby passengers, we now have a seat available on flight number……….”
As legendary electric utility executive M. Burns would say, Exxxxxxcellent.
