"approximately 233 people re-boarded that plane with assault rifles, pistols, and machine guns–but nothing that could have been used as a weapon.""

The new meaning behind the acronym TSA: Totally Stupid Assholes. I wonder what they will consider a dangerous weapon next? Will newspapers be next as they can be used to give people paper cuts? Maybe shoelaces as they can be made into a makeshift noose to hang somebody.

The TSA is nothing more then a joke not and
That would be funny if it weren’t so sad
