The TSA is now unionized

The 21st century's version of the Keystone Kops, the Transportation Security Administration screeners, can now officially enjoying the benefits of being unionized. Last year they were permitted to join the American Federation of Government Employees and a contract has now been written.

I realize some people might feel that allowing the incompetentt, abusive TSA screener to join forces with greedy union thugs is a bad thing. If you cross a male lion and a female tiger, you get a liger, a larger, more powerful beast than either of its predecessors. Wouldn't this result in a more powerful TSA?

That's the wrong way to look at it. Instead, imagine these five wonderful words:

"The TSA is on strike."

Instead of bringing air traffic to a halt, a TSA strike could push congress into finally abolishing this horrible Frankenstein's monster of an agency. Since they've never detected a single terrorist, I can't think of a single downside to losing them.


  1. Unfortunately, no federal unions are allowed to strike.

  2. Neither can bumble bees fly, but that doesn't stop them.
