The TSA is just now fessing up to stealing money from passangers? The report is only for 2010,k what about 2011 and what kind of wind fall can we all expect from 2012, maybe it could pay off our nation debt?

TSA airport security checkpoints are also a source of funds for the Transportation Security Administration.

Travelers who were upset witht he way they were treated and late for flights because of delays have left behind $409,085.56 in loose change in 2010.

They also ditch their pennies, dimes and quarters at the checkpoints, but they also left behind foreign currency.
Sure thing

TSA is a joke.

We're being trained like dogs for the day they implement mandatory body scans and pat downs at schools, stadiums, malls, and anywhere else they feel like.

It's a psychological game they are playing to make us bow to our masters.

As an American, there's a better chance you'll die from an animal attack than a terrorist.

Where's our trillion dollar war on sharks and bears?

It's a big phony lie to take your money and shut you up when you ask why they're taking your freedoms.

How about spending a trillion dollars fighting cancer?

Or not filling our foods with the toxic hormones that kill us off early in the first place?

It's all a big joke.

I don't know whether to laugh uncontrollably at this or wonder why people would leave their change for the TSA to pick up.

I am surprised the reported they found any at all.

I figured they would make a change jar in an office and use it for drinks after work.

I guess its not bad enough our tax dollars have to go to the TSA, they just want to rub it in a little.

These are the last group of people who should be given a tip!

I know when their feeling you up you feel obliged to throw some money at them for the effort, but they aren't even worth loose change people!

Where do they get the authority to take money?

Seems to me they should bring it to the traveler's attention they left something behind.

And this is just declared money, who knows how much these TSA individuals have pocketed already?

Maybe this money is whats left over after they have stuffed their pocket for the shift?

Federal officials had initially insisted that all screening procedures were followed after Ruth Sherman, 89, and Lenore Zimmerman, 85, went public with separate accounts of humiliating strip searches.

Please provide the last BOMB carried by an 80+ year old woman!

Has there ever been one?

And one a handheld metal detector wouldn't be adequate to search for?

Like I said, the terrorists have won. When we have people so paranoid and delusional to suggest that these old women are probable terrorists, they've been driven into La-La land by their fear of terrorists.

Mission Accomplished!

Expand TSA = Terrible, Stupid, Asinine. Government (public) unions need to be diminished both in scope and power.

Having worked for 16 years in a public union.

These TSA zombies aren't keeping us any safer than we were before 9/11.

The U.S. Senate has passed legislation that includes a provision allowing airports to replace TSA screeners with private security.

This opens the door for the widely loathed federal agency to be marginalized from aviation security altogether.

Besides the TSA screeners are cooked and anchors dragging down travel.

TSA should be the one under investigation.

While they’re wasting time groping children and strip searching elderly women, anyone can gain access to the airstrip.

This is the same TSA incompetence that resulted in the death of Delvonte Tisdale last year when he stowed away in a plane wheel well.

The TSA security director at PHL should be fired for allowing a private vehicle to enter from the street on to the aircraft runway.

This agency is a colossal failure and needs to be replaced with FAA operated security.

A Hawaiian breast feeding mother said she was humiliated when asked to prove her breast pump was real in front of TSA agents (of stupity).

The woman says she was flagged for additional screening at the Lihue Airport Wednesday because of her electric breast feeding pump.

She claims agents told her she couldn't take the pump on the plane because the bottles in her carry-on were empty.

I feel each TSA agent heeds to take a drug, alcohol and stupity test each time they come shift or show up at their work station or guard tower!

America’s busiest airports, Orlando Sanford International, stated it will opt out of using TSA workers to screen passengers.

This move will threaten the highly unpopular federal agency’s role in other airports across the nation.

Once again the people has spoken!

Are they makeing TSA agents , more stupid these days?

North Texas man says TSA airport security agents at Dallas Love Field strip-searched his wife and handled her feeding tube.

She had medical release forms etc. to explain all her condition ad medical devices.

Melinda Deaton has a four-inch medical tube sticking out of her stomach. The medically implanted tube is needed for treatment after complications with a gastric bypass surgery.

Still Transportation Security Administration agents strip-searched her and touched her feeding tube Wednesday, July 18, 2012 when she was on her way to three days of treatment.

The penalty for conspiracy is a maximum term of five years in federal prison. TSA agents should get double the prison time.

The case against Perez, Littlefield and the drug couriers is the result of an investigation by the FBI, which received assistance from other agencies.

The five defendants are scheduled to appear in federal court on August 14, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

Welcome to the KGB style of mass control.

A man and his wife were treated as potential terrorists and kicked off a Delta Airlines flight.

All over a satirical T-shirt because it made passengers and employees feel “very uncomfortable”.

This all happened at a small airport and with a private plane.

Today August 29, 2012 eight TSA goons told the Ron Paul entourage they would need to be screened before they would be allowed to leave because Willard Mitt Romney might be nearby.

Didn't the TSA agents know GOD is every where?

The TSA’s bizarre new policy where it orders travelers who have already passed security to “freeze” on command has been caught on camera.

Video clipss illustrating once more how the federal agency has implemented a series of ludicrous policies that seemingly have no other purpose than to act as an obedience test for the traveling public.
