Another pro tip about sniffer dogs. If you're trying to hide something from them sprinkle some pepper around. Worked for me

I went to NYC and brought back some bags of specialty coffee as gifts for a few friends and neighbors. The TSA opened all them, there were coffee grounds in all my shit, and a nice little note from them saying, in effect, "yeah, we ****ed with your shit, so what?" I made a complaint that went nowhere. Back when the airlines handled their own security, they only cared that I wasn't going to bring the plane down, something everyone was OK with.

I assume the TSA thought I was El Chapo, trying to smuggle drugs. I mean, so what if I was? a bit of coke in a checked bag isn't going to bring down the plane, assholes. Talk about mission creep. Yet another reason I haven't flown in almost 20 years.

From what Iíve observed the semi-cops are the most obnoxious bureaucrats you can run into, always wanting to throw their weight around.

People that can't get hired at the Post Office, go work for TSA.

I've been told that @Strats-N-Vettes always has wieners in his pockets to keep women away from him. Weird.

Since we kicked out most of the liberals in FL, we have very few disasters, we have a few natural disasters on occasion, but nothing we cannot handle.

Yeah, Doug isn't all that troublesome. Just keep him occupied and he's easy to deal with.

doug is harmless, to all peoples, but himself, but I believe he currently has great reasons to keep it between the lines, especially trying to be a baller on a budget.

He's harmless and won't hurt anything....except a Ford Bronco and he might kill a box of Franzia. Other than that, he's harmless. I still don't think he should be allowed to handle a drill, though.

No worries man. If you have the radio on you may have up to 8 hours to escape. I'm sure the highways will all be clear sailing for you, absent of 14 million other Floridiots all traveling north at the same time.

Not sure if he took out any of those raccoons when he had that infestation problem.
From what I have been told, soy marinated raccoon is a delicacy in Central Florida.

You cannot help yourself!!

But at least you need to give a heightened effort and appearance of being wiser.

FLORIDA has 22.25M residents, more than double your hayseed state.
FLORIDA has $22B surplus, which is almost 4X your state.
FLORIDA has the very best Governor in THE USA!!
your shit state has a dipshit socialist as its leader since 2017, and he has two more years.
FLORIDA has 20 of 28 R congresspeople.
your shit state has 7 of 14 socialist POS in congress.

You are the only one who believes your state is better-than-average, it is a shithole, no even on the same page as FLORIDA!!
From where I sit, viewing the objective data, your state is a shithole, going downhill very fast, will be blue in the next cycle.
FLORIDA will remain dominant in all things, ALL THINGS, except in your BS mind, which is okay with me, as you do not matter.

FLORIDA, either you LOVE IT, or you are miserable where you live!!

Lastly, the best thing about FLORIDA is you live elsewhere!!
