I can't believe you think this is okay, or even bad but tolerable. It's completely intolerable

It is worse than intolerable. The waste of resources, checking and
re-checking someone who should not be on 'the list', puts the rest of
us at risk. TSA has limited resources. Thiink about the one that got
away because of unneeded checks of people incorrectly on 'the list'.

The error is either systematic, and therefore the waste is much larger
than one person or, as some have implied, intentional and willful waste
of taxpayer monies, in which case the bureaucrat responsible should be
removed. Bureaucracy is about deligating action to those who can not
be allowed to make decisions. Stepping out of that role further
corrupts the system.

Nixon had his list. I had thought Rep. were smarter now. LIbs. keep
telling me the Rep. are just the same as then, but I do not want to
believe that. We can have social and economic freeddom without their
crushing, insensitive view of life and politics.
