The TSA Racket is Now Selling Your Basic Rights Back to You

The TSA Racket is Now Selling Your Basic Rights Back to You

The TSA announced today that they will be accepting payments to give you back your basic rights in airports — if passengers pay to sign up for the TSA Precheck program, they can keep their shoes, belts and jackets on, leave laptops in their cases, and not have to remove liquids and gels from carry-ons.

The $85 pizzo also requires fingerprinting, and will be available in 100 airports by the end of the year. The program had previously been limited to frequent flier members from "select airlines".

No word on how this new protection plan will affect Hindus, passengers with light sabers, or three-year-olds.

Also set to change this year are the FAA draconian policies concerning cell phone use on airplanes. The FAA is set to make a formal decision at the end of September.
