The TSA, and reactivity vs. proactivity

I don't oppose increased security on airlines. I haven't opposed such since September 2001.

I do, however, think the TSA and Homeland Security can fuck the fucking fuckety fuck off with bells on, and jagged glass knobs dipped in habanero nacho cheez. I have no clue how they can justify groping or strip searching little kids, or breaking cancer survivors' urine bags, or having people arrested for opting to leave instead of having their "junk" touched--especially as none of those individuals are likely to be a terrorist.

As for the individuals that are likely to be terrorists...well, Homeland Security tends to bend over backwards hard enough to have their heads up their asses just to avoid offending them because of "racial sensitivity."

Which can also fuck off.

This is bad year round--it just happens to get highlighted by holiday travel.

My nerves.

Specifically, the sciatic nerve that runs from my heel up to my butt, can fuck right off. Especially as I can't afford to go get that treated.

Your turn.

Because I can empathize...

...this one is for Ricki.

Students who do none of the work, and won't show up for lecture, but come in in the last month or so of class whining about how badly they need to pass the class and begging for extra credit can fuck right the fuck off. So can the Department of Education and incompetent individual K-12 administrations that have taught said students that that behavior is perfectly acceptable by not permitting classroom teachers to fail students who haven't done the work with the 0% they've earned.

Heathens of all ages above three who won't respect rules in classrooms or libraries, or behave themselves in public (stores, restaurants, etc) can fuck right off, too. And so can the parents who permit, enable, or ignore such behavior--in fact, the parents can fuck off harder with a rusty chainsaw for not loving their kids enough to teach them to be human.

I'm sure there's some equivalent in the corporate world, but since I've always lived in academia, I have no clue what it might be.

Have a good weekend, y'all.

Ding, dong, the witch is dead!

A great big FUCK YEAH! to Nancy Pelosi losing the Speaker of the House position. And to all of the people who voted last Tuesday, whichever party they voted for. From what I've read, that was a record turnout for a midterm election.

Have a great weekend, everyone.
