Not at all, but I like the cryptic potshot.
Maybe you can speak in tongues with your next post.

They need protections from us evil taxpayers.

And now when caught groping, can't be fired.

Who will protect us from them, I wonder?

Why not? A bunch of the unionized parking attendants at Logan Airport in Boston took home more than 100 thousand dollars in 2010.

Oops I'm sorry, they are "Parking Utility Technicians".

Some Logan parking lot attendants make $100G a year (http://www.myfoxboston.com/dpp/news/local/some-massport-employees-make-100g-a-year-20110203 - broken link)

I don't but the TSA sure does. Now we'll have even more overpaid idiots searching people all over the country at our airports all because some liberal nut job feels that everyone should make $100K a year and get full medical benefits at no cost to themselves.

Default TSA Collective Bargaining for screeners

Bad idea.

This will not turn out well.
