I've long thought the whole TSA checkin was as stupid as the govt could get. Then they started giving out the "TSA PRE" qualification on certain airline tickets which allow you to speed through the entire screening process. Now that they've shown how much faster you could get through the maze they've created, they're willing to sell you the right to bypass much of the screening process. "With a 5 year, $85 membership, you can speed through security and don’t need to remove your: shoes, laptops, liquids, belts and light jackets." https://www.tsa.gov/precheck?EMD=&R...fe0c06990e6ed61d6cbec66dc2d6cd68eac01b6f9a4c4 This is so irritating only a business person could appreciate creating an artificial barrier and then selling a way around the barrier. Someone like that Yella-haired Satan. But surely he's not smart enough to do it. It has to be one of his apprentices.
