    My point was meant to be that the legacy of the Americans of the WW2 era must be remembered. And their legacy is under attack wrt fellow Americans of today in the TSA not receiving their weekly pay due to a so called parital gov shutdown.

    While rich Bankers and Wall Street stockbrokers make loads of money, and while US Senators and Congressmen have loads of money.... our fellow Americans in the TSA are not getting their weekly checks. What is this North Korea, no this is The USA and the TSA workers have to get their weekly checks. If there is backpay for TSA workers during a so called partial gov shutdown, that is unacceptable, some workers have bills that have to be paid. Apartment owners wont wait for the rent check.

    Why is WWII so significant? Don'ít the people that fought in WWI deserve to be remembered? And what about the civil war should they be forgotten as insignificant? Or the men and women like me that were in for the cold war doní't we count for something?
    To point to one period as more important than any other is insulting to everyone. Just because you have a hard on for WWII doesn'ít mean that it is the be-all, do-all of all time.

      TSA = Thousands Standing Around.

      It is ten times as expensive as the previous Private Company that did the same job.



      When they are hired, they have to be on call at all times in order to get 20 hours a week. These guys ain't exactly top-tier, nor are they respected or even very successful at their task... if that task is to catch bad guys.

      If their real mission is to bully people and get the American people used to being treated like garbage, they they are going like gang-busters.

        It depends on the airport. In Philly you can slip on through.
        At L.A.X. the TSA agent examined the cash in my pocket. Though to be fair, I hear they just ask you to throw out any cannabis-infused products they catch you with.

              Yeah, it is okay with me. Welcome to real life. If a financial emergency hits and you were unwilling or unable to save a cash reserve you may have to take a loan to make ends meet. Most people taking out emergency loans don't get special deals for being hard luck cases. These guys do. So, yeah, not seeing a problem.

                YOU talking about REAL life. lmao.

                To be able to SAVE you have to make enough. Check on the amount of savings the average have. The financial emergency has be caused by their employer, in this cast Trump. YES Trump, remeber him saying on TV in the Oval Office he would be PROUD to take responsibility for the shut down

                  The 'financial emergency' is self-inflicted by Trump. There would be no problems financially for anyone affected if Trump actually had empathy for those he is supposed to govern. He couldn't care less.

                  And it is now getting dangerous in the airline business because of furloughs, national parks are getting trashed, and Homeland Security is greatly affected.

                  The House is submitting bills to get all of the affected departments, with the exception of Homeland Security, back to work. And it should be noted that contract personnel won't be getting any back pay at all. The wall is a very bad joke with Trump as the court jester.

                    Of course you don't. You are just following your leader to the fantasy of a 'wall.'
