Defending the Honor of Those That Silently Defend YOU

There have been many an example given in the last couple weeks alone of relative atrocities committed by our TSA (Transportation Security Administration). These actors aren’t the clean-cut do-gooders one might expect to be working a job of such critical perceived importance. No.
Rather, looking upon them & listening to them speak, one might wonder what gutter they were dredged up from. Better on the Government payroll than the welfare roll, right? More to the point, these people now follow a mandate to either view you naked in astonishing detail or, in place of that, lay their hands upon your very private places in very public view.
Now the Dept of Homeland Security, shoulder to shoulder with the White House, has issued a statement decrying the “overblown outrage.” They point out that “fewer than one half of one percent of the 34 million passengers who traveled on airplanes in or to the U.S. last week were subjected to crotch-area pat-downs.” Most of you are at least adept at basic arithmetic. So take a moment & do the math.
Better yet, Jim Geraughty, columnist at the National Review Online, has already done it for you: and you can see it here courtesy of AlwaysCatholic blog, written by Sean Norris (@commompatriot).
