Oct 2nd 2012 2:09PM Oh...TSA employees are in a union? Then why are they stealing? Usually beingb in a union means that you are paid a living wage...have benefits etc. No...I don't think TSA employees are unionized. I'm in a union myself, and earn a really good living. The only people who steal are low wage earners like these idiots working for TSA, and politicians and banksters.
Oct 2nd 2012 1:59PM You know...when I lived in Japan, I never had to worry about my personal items...ever. I accidentally left my brand new Cannon EOS Rebel X 35mm camera and three lenses in a camera bag on a seat bench next to me at the train station in Tokyo, Japan when I was on a business trip there back in the mid-80's. I arrived at work, and then discovered my mistake. I was really upset...because I knew that in the U.S. it would be LONG gone. But the security guard at the department store where I was doing a special effects installation, told me, "No...no, it's no problem. Go now, go back to that station. It will still be there." Are you sure? I asked. And he said go. So I went all the way back to that station, and when I arrived there almost 40 minutes later and got off the train, there was my camera bag intact. I was amazed. Because here in the States, there are only about half the honest people here and to me, I wonder why that is. Perhaps it's that Capitalist Republican attitude that what is yours is really mine. We teach our children via the Main-Stream Media and in our politics and the U.S. Foreign Policy (which is really U.S. CORPORATE Foreign Policy) that it is perfectly acceptable to steal whatever you want and that there should be NO consequences for it...at least within the government there seems to be little or no cxobnsequences...right? Presidential pardons and a really crooked Supreme Court...violent law enforcement officers etc., so forth and so on. TSA should be dismantled and a new agency that can acxtually be trusted, put ibn its place.
Jan 26th 2010 1:58PM Or how about those Tibetans? They chop your body up and feed you to the vultures. Then when your bones are picked clean, they crush your bones with a stone mallet and spread the rest for the birds and Mother Earth. I've watched the process, initially it seemed gruesome, but near the end of the whole process, it seemed more natural. Besides that, realestate is precious at those high altitudes and burying someone is costly. Sorry about my grammar.
Jan 26th 2010 1:41PM Proper grammar was drilled into me as a kid. That's not to say that I too am lax in my use of this bizarre language. Lazy pronunciation by my two children has been something that I've been working on for seventeen and twelve years respectively, but that does not seem to help my kids when their attitude in response is: "Whatever dad." Both of my kids tell me that they hate reading. Where did I go wrong? I read to them when they were little. They loved it. I had them read to me and they seemed to like it as well. But with the advent of shorthand texting on their cell phones, their English grammar has gone downhill fast. Conjunction Junction...where ARE you?! Help!
