The TSA does not answer to the US Government

http://www.infowars.com/...ressional-oversight/

With public backlash against the TSA at an all time high, and given the scrutiny that the TSA has faced at the hands of the TIC and its subcommittees, it is somewhat unsurprising that agency head Pistole is no longer willing to face the music as it were.

Well since they apparently dont answer to or work for congress, I think it is completely valid to cut the paychecks of every TSA worker. I mean, why pay someone who apparently doesent even work for you, right?

For extra measure, I will throw in some bonus material:

http://www.cnn.com/...tsa-watch/index.html

A law enforcement source told CNN the incident doesn't appear to have anything to do with terrorism.

A true MIT scholar if ever I saw one...

Although I have no love (or even respect) for the TSA, I still believe buying/wearing stupid art, just like stupid fashion, should be punished.
No idea if this pic is legit (looks a lot like PS to my untrained eye)...

I could see how that would be a problem, but none the less, I am not sure he really did anything wrong. I mean the "bomb" is completely harmless and he was not threatening anyone.

One could make the same argument about someone yelling "FIRE!" in a crowded theater... But we all know why this is not OK... Same goes for if people on the plane were to see this 'fake device', as it could stress a lot of people, and even lead to much worse, no?

[hyperbole]Hell, if he were sitting next to pinkie on a crowded bus, he would probaby get shot, as pinkie would see his opportunity to be a "hero", and who knows how many innocent people would be backstops to his bullets.[/hyperbole]

Curious... Are you a fan of Jesse Ventura's show?

There's a difference between asserting that Congress has no oversight authority, and asserting that a particular committee or subcommittee has no oversight authority. It appears that the latter is what happened here.
