People can cry for government intervention, but they can't escape the inevitable (and disastrous) results.
Reuters reports an astounding statistic on the damage that the TSA causes to American lives.
Airport screening delays have caused more than 70,000 American Airlines (AAL.O) customers and 40,000 checked bags to miss their flights this year, an executive for the airline told a U.S. congressional subcommittee on Thursday.
Several times this week, Ron Paul has been on Fox Business to offer the proper solution to this needless agony and waste.
It won't be fixed by crony "privatization," where a government-favored corporation takes over all airport security. One-size-fits-all whether instituted by government, or one of its crony friends won't work.
Instead, private property should reign supreme.
Each airline is responsible for its own business and has a vested interest in making sure that their customers are happy and satisfied. No airline wants damage to occur to its planes, employees or customers.
Each airline should then logically be responsible over the task of balancing security and customer satisfaction. They should compete with one another to find out what that is balance is. Profits and losses will clearly show what consumers want.
The TSA has no incentive to make anyone happy (other than their oversized egos). It's just another government run cookie-cutter solution. No one should be surprised by the results.
Whether it's the VA hospitals, government schools, government roads, government money, or anything else that government monopolizes, when the cookie-cutters come in, human misery must follow.
TSA has proven to provide nothing but security theatre.
