Don't be silent...

This is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard about. Click the link above and read the story of a man that was not allowed to get on a plane because of the t-shirt he was wearing.

I am in the service for a reason. Part of the Sailor's Creed reads "I represent the fighting spirit of the Navy and those who have gone before me to defend freedom and democracy around the world."

I don't serve, and I certainly don't send my Sailor's into harm's way defending JetBlue's actions. We serve defending this man's right to wear whatever t-shirt he wants to. (As long is it doesn't say "I have a bomb" - cause we arrest anyone that says that at an airport.)

How about "I am da bomb" ?

I think you SHOULD be able to wear that on your shirt. The question is, would some TSA jerk-off that was having a bad day give you a hard time about it?

On one of my recent flights, I met an old co-worker wearing the white TSA uni and badge. He is a PMI certified Project Manager. Got downsized at a large company we both used to work at. I had to catch a flight, so we didn't get to chat - but it made me wonder, what are they paying those guys? He had to be making $60K+ easily as a tech project manager.
