The TSA Found More Than $500,000 In Loose Change. Now What?

The TSA Found More Than $500,000 In Loose Change. Now What?

Commented Dec 9, 2013 at 02:27:48 in Politics

“Let TSA spend it on an annual party at each airport. It's a low wage job that is mostly unappreciated by the public and as we've recently seen, it can get you killed. These people take a lot of abuse from travelers, so I say "Keep the change." Think of it as a tip and let them enjoy it at the holidays.”

“Republicans always talk in circles because they never have any facts. Whichever way the wind is blowing in their heads determines their explanations for any entitlement cuts. They are never interested in the facts, just the cuts.... because poor or disadvantaged people really don't matter to them.”

“It sounds like a FOX news story. The Republicans know that racism isn't over and they demonstrate that daily in how they treat the nation's president and first lady. Rosa Parks was courageous and changed the world a little. That's good, but it didn't end racism in the GOP or anywhere in America. I'm proud that America elected a person of color to lead the nation. TWICE! There is hope that King's dream will be realized someday.”

fibs4libs on Dec 3, 2013 at 03:16:19

“Dr. King's dreams will be realized when Dems stop treating any opposition to a President as though it is driven by racism. I'm guessing that he wouldn't be thrilled by the idea that so many people voted for him purely based on his race, which is something many liberals shamelessly admit.

BTW, "person of color?" Seriously?”

“With all due respect, as a minority, I hear a condescending tone in your post. Michelle Obama ain't jack, she wasn't elected, so let's please, not go there with her. I'll leave it that.... the rest is way too obvious.”

“Hold that Tiger! Those right leaning, lying, fascist conservatives intrude into the personal lives of females in this country everyday. In a democratic republic, group thinking and voting calls the shots. We are not a collective of uncivilized individuals who can just do whatever we please. Absolute freedom is absolute anarchy. Civilization must have structure and laws. Government ensures that the rights of the citizens aren't superceded by the will of the rich and powerful. Government provides protection from greedy capitalists. A famous Republican once said: “The only problem with capitalism is the capitalists.”

― Herbert Hoover”

“Despite the survey findings, Walmart reports that Black & Blue Thursday was a huge success. They raked in mega $$$$$$$. I suspect that they rather like the free publicity and enjoy attracting their usual Walmaniacs to the shopping brawl.”

“That's an interesting observation. Selling businesses to foreign companies is simply getting the best deal, perhaps. We borrow money from China, so I'm not clear about how the sale of these iconic companies makes white people responsible for our foreign debt. Perhaps you could provide some details and examples.”

“They sell of our Iconic brands which most Americans think are still American owned but in fact are not, the first thing they do is corporate the HQ overs seas, so they can avoid the U.S. Taxes on companies HQ's here. Budweiser, and the bunch of them..bet you still think French's Mustard and Good humor are U.S based Companies..oh yeah neither is Campbell soups or Hershey chocolate.

“It's Arizona, the land of dried out, sun-baked retirees who don't want to spend a nickel for anything that doesn't quench their thirst or cool their homes. Most of those people think that children should live in other states. The old folks in AZ are terrified of the Latinos whom they suspect are all illegal immigrants. Old Republicans live in fear, are pretty dysfunctional and not a bit interested in helping communities with child abuse problems. Brewer has made it a low priority because low taxes always come first. Voters like that in Arizona.”

VinAZ on Nov 30, 2013 at 21:41:37

“While that is all true, even they can't be held accountable for this. Taxpayers were paying salaries the last four years but none of the calls into the abuse hotline were investigated, not one, that's over six thousand. Think about it, not one tip on child abuse was investigated, what were they doing for four years??”

darrtown on Nov 30, 2013 at 21:06:19

“Back off. I'm an Arizona retiree. My son and grandson live here and I darn well hope they stay. I do not fear Latinos. Hispanics are 40% of my city and they add so much to the joy of living here. I do not live in fear of anyone as you intimate, and I am not dysfunctional and I would hope the authorities get their acts together concerning CPS. One good move would be a top down clean out of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Dept. Republicans have held majorities in our state House and Senate for 43+ years in a row. This is not healthy. Your verbal abusing of retirees and the rest who live in Arizona will not be in any way helpful.”

“America has a history of doing both and it usually works quite well. Big government happened for a reason. Quite simply, capitalism is corrupt and rotten at it's core. Government has had to grow to keep it in check. Unfortunately, the capitalist crooks have purchased a team of obstructionists (tea party) to hold the government down while Wall Street, the banks and big corporations steal America blind. Your freedom, Bill of Rights and the Constitution aren't in any danger. That's just the smoke and mirrors provided by the Heritage Foundation to push your conservative buttons. They're selling you a bill of goods to get your focus elsewhere, when in fact they are the real problem.”
