Privatize TSA



If a private company wins a contract to conduct a business, then has numerous rouge employees, the odds are great the company will not have its contract renewed.  TSA, with its Government employee monopoly, is a total antithesis of this common sense approach.

Below is my recent squabble.  I have had several .


April 8 at 6:30 pm, Newark Airport, I had 3 boarding passes inside my passport for me, my daughter 13 and her friend 14.  At checkpoint the TSA inspector rudely and loudly reprimanded me for not having the 2 girls passes in their passports complaining that it was slowing him down.  I politely apologized; he persisted with rudeness and loudness, told me to reassemble and called the next group. Quickly I reassembled and was on my way.  This insult was uncalled for.  This was an act by an immature ego maniac.  TSA has many.
What lunacy have we created with TSA?  It is arrogant and lacks common sense.  What a huge mistake Bush made in 2002 when he relented to Democrats request for a government employee TSA.  In private business the customer comes first.  For TSA the customer is last.


There are many private security companies with brighter and more dedicated workers.  Working in New York’s financial district for 3 decades now I have personally appreciated these private security experts that protect our financial institutions against harm.  Why can’t TSA follow this best practice?


It is definitely  time to privatize.

I then strongly believed in Gov role in helping the poor. However, as a USDA Child Nutrition Programs, I personally accounted for millions of fraud, abuse, and waste of tax payer money. I came to believe that the poor would be best served with less Gov programs and more with direct aid via tax system. Then after 5 years I became a free market capitalist, was a venture capitalist in 2007 and helped start 2 high tech companies. I dedicate this site to champion free market capitalism as the best road to Prosperity. Please join in. If you disagree, fine, but please post with dignity and class and be civil. Argue with facts always.
