The Real Meaning of "TSA"

When you come right down to it, the real meaning of "TSA" is "Boondoggle!!"

--Since 2001, TSA staff has grown from 16,500 to over 65,000, a near-400% increase.  In the same amount of time, total passenger enplanements in the U.S. have increased less than 12%.
--Since 2002, TSA procured six contracts to hire and train more than 137,000 staff, for a total of more than $2.4 billion, at a rate of more than $17,500 per hire. More employees have left TSA than are currently employed at the agency.
--Over the past ten years, TSA has spent nearly $57 billion to secure the U.S. transportation network, and TSA‘s classified performance results do not reflect a good return on this taxpayer investment.
--On average, there are 30 TSA administrative personnel—21 administrative field staff and nine headquarters staff—for each of the 457 airports where TSA operates.


Another meaning for "TSA"?  Testicle Squeezing Agency.

Tax-testicles, or the ones 1/2 of us were born with.  Makes no difference to Gummint.
