"Like the TSA, the facility wouldn't exist if it weren't necessary."
I really would like to not have the TSA considered "necessary". Political theatre to provide cushy jobs to well-connected players, shift taxpayer money to services We Don't Need, shorten the dole queue and keep the population aware of the fact that Big State can finger your rectum before inviting you to a visit to a political prison. Sure. But necessary or even useful? No.
