Posted on 01/17/2012 10:15:15 AM PST by John Semmens
Those mocking the Transportation Security Administration for recently confiscating a passengers cupcake are missing the point says Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
Its not that were saying that a cupcake, per se, is a dangerous weapon, Napolitano explained. But the risk of a random confiscation of any item is a way of throwing a monkey-wrench into a potential terrorists plot.
Napolitano also cited the collateral benefit to the TSA from foraging off the land. You know, Shermans march to the sea wouldnt have been possible if his troops didnt take opportunities to seize supplies from the inhabitants of Georgia and South Carolina. Seizing passengers property helps supplement the TSAs resources and enables us to accomplish our mission under existing budget constraints.

Dang it!! You did it to me AGAIN. It didn’t take me long, but it took me to the Sherman’s march thing to get it.Congrats
Please pay no attention to that woman behind the curtain eating the cupcake!
Janet, I know our economy is bad, but stealing cupcakes is a nono.
Can even a Snickers bar be safe?
“You know, Shermans march to the sea wouldnt have been possible if his troops didnt take opportunities to seize supplies from the inhabitants of Georgia and South Carolina. Seizing passengers”
Thousands starved after the seizure food and supplies in Georgia and South Carolina
There was a real story very similar to this.
Ill see if I can find it. Dont hold your breath, it will take a while.
And then they feel their balls...........
An idiot's approach to security.
But everyone else can walk right through with a prune danish. Denmark always gets all the breaks.

War is Hell. Supply lines to Lee were cut, and his soldiers were demoralized. Mission accomplished
You know things are getting bad when the satire is a better explanation for what is happening than the truth.
