Looks like Obama has found a way to fix those pesky problems with the TSA.

Unionize them...... Do you feel safer now? Payoffs are just so sweet.

    Because unions are full of lazy people who are nearly impossible to fire no matter how worthless they are or what they screw up.

  • My goodness Carpy.

    "Because unions are full of lazy people who are nearly impossible to fire no matter how worthless they are or what they screw up."

    It's so sad that you feel this way. You think you are so smart, but you just prove how ignorant so many Americans are. I know you know that statement isn't true. So many union members are not lazy. I'm sure many are but you overgeneralize in almost every sentance you type. I was part of a union before I became a SAHM, I was NOT lazy. I did my job without my bosses telling me to. I certainly was not a worthless employee. I never ever hid behind the union.

    I was in a union for 10 years and my husband is retired UAW, and I can attest first hand that there are a LOT of lazy people in the unions.

    I did NOT say ALL. I said a LOT and that is because a LOT are. Just because YOU were not one of them does NOT tale away from the fact.
