More TSA Inanity

I wasn't planning to post anything else today, but this news item on CNN made me change my mind.

Guess what? If you think that our airport screening procedures are pointless security theater that violates your constitutional rights, and you have the audacity to express that opinion within earshot of a TSA functionary, you may be -- no, not the Ebola virus -- A TERRORIST. Yes, that's right, expressing contempt for the procedures used by the TSA is one of the "behavioral indicators" that the TSA is training officers to rely on when deciding whether a passenger is "high risk."

Many people have said it, but it's worth repeating here: 1984 was meant to be a cautionary tale, not an instruction manual.
