Just Doing My Job

I opted out of the full-body porno-scanner at the airport this morning.  As I was being frisked—including my buttocks and groin areas—by the very polite TSA agent, I asked him if he really thought that these procedures were going to stop a terrorist.  He shrugged his shoulders.  When I opined that what was happened was that the State was stripping Americans of our rights, including him of his, he mumbled something about "just working here."  I told him that this was the same justification Nazi war criminals used at Nuremberg.

So Liberty dies not with a bang, but with a whimper of "just doing my job."
