As ever, only partly true, can't comment on the marshall's criminal/careless behavior.......but the threat of one on each flight is not a bad idea....but I think maybe arming all pilots and flight crew is a good idea, second off is to abandon the TSA, that agency is staffed by inept dummies that never graduated HS, let alone know WTF they are doing,....

then there is eliminating the #1 threat to transport....islam, easy do on their home turf....easier here still yet.....

So what is your point?

Do you agree that the marshal's service is a waste of money?

Do you think the speaker is misguided in some way?

Phil is conflicted over this one.

Eliminating the the Air Marshal Service would take people off the government payroll. It's bad anytime you take people off the government payroll.

However, some of those people would be on welfare or unemployment, so that would be good.

You would also eliminate the jobs of people that carry evil guns...and that's a good thing as well.

He is my congressman and a personal freind. I was not previously familiar with the statistics he cited, but it certainly paints the picture of a bloated, inefficent government program.

It would be intersting to compare the payroll and the "catch" rate of the remainder of the TSA to the Air Marshals. There are a lot of people in the whole system being paid to do very little.
