The TSA is a Waste of Money

The TSA is hard to evaluate largely because it's attempting to solve a non-problem. Despite some very notable cases, airplane hijackings and bombings are quite rare. There aren't that many attempts, and there are even fewer successes.

So Homeland Security officials looking to evaluate the agency had a clever idea: They pretended to be terrorists, and tried to smuggle guns and bombs onto planes 70 different times. And 67 of those times, the Red Team succeeded. Their weapons and bombs were not confiscated, despite the TSA's lengthy screening process. That's a success rate of more than 95 percent.

Yeah, I have a friend who worked for TSA for several years. I don't think it's news to anyone who works there, or who knows anyone who does, that it's not security. It's just security theater.

A 7.6 billion dollar budget annual to make people feel safe theater.

Starting Oct 2020, everyone over 18 will have to use REAL ID. I really don’t see how this will make any difference.

Beginning October 1, 2020, every air traveler 18 years of age and older will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, state-issued enhanced driver’s license, or another acceptable form of ID to fly within the United States.
Check for the star.

REAL ID-compliant cards are marked with a star at the top of the card. If you’re not sure, contact your state driver’s license agency on how to obtain a REAL ID compliant card.

But it’s a pretty good jobs program.

maybe if they were better trained and paid?

Anyway, the impression that something is done might not discourage the terrorists, but might be a deterrent to wackos.

I pay money now so I don’t have to deal with them

That alone could be a deterrent. If you give off the impression that it’s highly secured, you might change your plans.

That only works if it isn't widely known to be a joke. Which it is.
