Maybe it's because you're brainwashed

In an article arrogantly titled, "Stop whining about TSA pat downs," a NorthJersey.com columnist states:

In fact I cannot remember one unpleasant encounter with any TSA official ever in any airport in the United States. And as a business traveler, I have been through quite a number of airports since Congress created the TSA during the Bush Administration shortly after 9/11.

Is it luck? My innocent baby face?

Maybe it's my attitude. Maybe it's because I don't go looking for trouble.

I actually think it's because you're brainwashed, following the herd off the cliff. The article continues to say how "I have always treated the TSA screeners with great respect and admiration." and the man in front of him in line the other day was not so submissive. Instead, the older man (a "geezer") was mad he had to take off his belt because - imagine this! - his belt was holding up his pants and removing it would - yes, it's true! - cause his pants to fall down. How dare he actually expect to be able to board a plane without the humiliation of having his pants fall down!

But:
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
  • We must never forget 9/11
...

Are you ready to be a good, submissive citizen, now?
