Senator: 'I'm Sensing A Greater Friendliness At The TSA'

Daily dose of congressional comedy.

Senator blasts Postal Service as 'not friendly' ... but praises the TSA.  Maybe he should talk to Sen. Claire McCaskill who tweeted yesterday about her 'very uncomfortable' TSA experience.

The senator, who has complained about the TSA's security techniques in the past, tweeted that she was selected for a pat-down and that the experience was not a pleasant one.  "‪Today in my airport screening, test on my hands was positive," McCaskill wrote to her 89,100 followers. "Got private, more aggressive pat down. OMG. #veryuncomfortable‬."

"I try to avoid a pat-down at all costs," McCaskill told TSA Administrator John Pistole during a Senate hearing that year. "There are many times women put their hands on me in a way that if it was your daughter or your sister or your wife, you would be upset."

TSA has come under fire for its security procedures from other lawmakers in the past. Sen. Rand Paul was detained by TSA for refusing a pat-down last year.



CARPER: I just want to say that I’ve noticed this year in traveling by airplanes, most of us don’t like going through the security checks at airports. I ride the train most of the time, thankfully.  But I’ve noticed the folks at TSA – at first I thought it was my imagination but now I’m not so sure that it is – I’m sensing that a greater friendliness and helpfulness on the part of TSA. (...) But I’ve certainly talked to the guy who runs TSA a lot about this but I think that they are beginning to start a little bit of a culture change, it’s starting to take effect, I hope so.  

I just want to say when I walk into a post office for service whether it’s Delaware or any another place. In Delaware for the most part they like me, not everyone does I’m sure, but they’re friendly and so forth – but too often I see the provision of service in post offices that I would not describe as friendly and welcoming. And in some cases, because the folks providing the service behind the counter have so much on them and they’re trying to grapple with big challenges – and I can understand that – I would just ask that we move forward and come through this tough time and hopefully emerge on the other side of the river that we focus more on friendliness, a customer friendliness, not just deliver the stuff door to door – which is important – but also as we go to the post office to drop off our packages or buy stamps or whatever. I would close with that.

The debt-laden United States Post Office announced that it will end Saturday delivery of first-class mail in an attempt to cut costs -- it posted a $16 billion loss in 2012, defaulted on its $11.1 billion retiree health benefit prefunding payments and tapped out its $15 billion lifeline with Treasury.

The ass has it the other way around.

The Postal Clerks are the friendliest and most courteous people.

There must be something in the wings, as to the feds wantingto discredit the Post Offices, and abolish them. This may be the beginning.

Do you suppose ANY of these Washington politicians would pass a mental health screening? Judging from Obama's books .... he would not.

I don't fly very often, but I have learned to prepare the night before. I "enjoy" a hardy meal which includes some brochallie, lots of beans and some pickled eggs, if I can fnd them. I have found a pat-down to be very interesting and usually very quick.

We are given this tripe in order to do two things, both effective for the elite who are forcing this on us, and do not fool yourself, carper is or wants to be one of them. Those two things: 1. affect stupid people who do not think deeply at all, which they are banking on being the bulk of everyone, having dumbed us down with modern education systems and media which they own and control (so they are pretty sure they control enough of us) 2. upset the feckless worriers who pick apart this or that and do not attempt to address the overall whole.

Money is obsolete, as is poverty and hunger, so humanity has to catch up. There is enough for all, do not believe their lies. But we have to figure out together how to move forward, and money only separates us as one of their primary tools along with religion and the afore-stated media.

Anyway, laugh, but ignore. Don't stress about the TSA too particularly, except as yet another symptom of a money issue. It really is all related to money, which is not orgnanic or necessary. It divides us, and that's what power elites need.
