Adam Conover of College Humor’s and Tru TV’s Adam Ruins Everything recently released a very funny (and sadly accurate) sketch called “Why the TSA Doesn’t Stop Terrorist Attacks.” In the sketch Conover discusses the reality that the TSA is simply a very expensive placebo for American travellers. While there is little (to no) evidence that the TSA has ever done anything to protect travellers from the threat of terrorists attacks, we continue to pour millions of dollars in resources into the program. Even worse than the HUGE sums of money we waste on the TSA is the freedom that we abdicate to allow them to operate.
Watch as Conover brilliantly explains why we should dump the TSA and put the money we waste on them to better use.
