Car Crashing Video ~ Real or Fake?

This video is just a little bit too crazy to not be staged, but on the other hand, its stuck in the middle of nowhere not being pushed or promoted so maybe it is real?

What do you think?

This Should Worry You

We all know that the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) is about as useful as a chocolate fire-guard or a rice paper condom as shown by these articles here;

English: TSA insignia

And this is what they boast what the TSA did find in 2011:

LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 02:  Transportation Secu...
And then I read this today and it got me really scared;

Fake Pilot 'Hitched A Free Ride In Cockpit'

Yup, with all of the European and American technology and the fear that the good lord put into us on 9/11 - we still managed somehow to let someone who should not be there, into the cockpit.

Nice work everyone involved.

Now, where did I put that railway timetable???

TSA agents, security and safe landings

I used to be a traveling salesman for a hi-tech firm. Pre 9/11 (therefore pre-TSA)I flew throughout the USA and Europe spending an average of 2 weeks abroad a month. So yeah, I know a thing or two about airport security.

I was still a smoker when I was a salesman and every time I went through security in the USA with a coffee in my hand, having just had a smoke outside, I'd set off the alarm bells. Apparently nicotine and caffeine were a potent mix.

Sadly it appears to me that in the decade (oy vey!) since then security has really not improved much.

I recently read an article over at HillBuzz about mixing death threats, attempted mass murder and liberalism together creating a weird outcome.

Here is a snippet from the article:

Riding the Orange Line to Midway or the Blue Line to O’Hare we run into plenty of TSA agents, whether we are going to the actual airports or not. Most of these people are circus clowns. They’re very young, sloppy, completely unprofessional in public, and couldn’t care less about how they’re seen behaving in their uniforms. 90% of the ones we see in TSA uniforms are black.

It sure feels like there is a very high minority hiring push for TSA agents — and that the standards for the jobs are very, very low. The pay, from what we hear, however, is very good, especially in this economy.

And the article concludes:

Increasingly, we believe we need Israelis to come in and restructure the TSA, weed out the bad and lazy apples, and give the entire outfit’s professionalism a serious upgrade, Liberals be damned.
