Quote of the day–Joseph Morton

About 43,000 Transportation Security Administration officers are sporting new uniforms that make them look more like warriors in the battle against terrorism than baggage handlers.


 …


The new look was rolled out today in Omaha and many other airports to mark the seventh anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.


The uniform shirts change from white to blue. Instead of an embroidered badge, the officers will wear a metal badge. Their belts will be wider to better fit with the uniform pants.


The 65/35 polyester/cotton blend shirts will stay cleaner and be more comfortable, according to the agency.


A new arm patch will feature an eagle and a portion of the American flag. The patch is intended as a visible reminder of the organization’s roots in the 2001 attacks.

Airport security crews go blue, and you’re paying for it

  1. What they said:
    “Their belts will be wider to better fit with the uniform pants.”

    What they meant:
    “Their belts will be wider to carry the weight of a firearm and a taser so that they can better protect the travelling public and enforce the will of your overlords.”

    I hate the TSA.

  2. Oh, goody! They get to look more cop-like. That’s fitting, I reckon, as their ambit is to act like the worst sort of dumb mean cops.

    Dammit, I need to quit drinking. The Feddle Gummint keeps supplying me with reasons to keep drinking. I wanna be numb when they come for me, numb, I tell you!

  3. “About 43,000 Transportation Security Administration officers are sporting new uniforms that make them look more like warriors in the battle against terrorism than baggage handlers.”

    A monkey in a uniform is still just a monkey in a uniform.
