How to end the shutdown

I fly weekly for work, so I deal with the TSA very often. They could fix this themselves with a few simple changes if implemented around the country.

Delay every GOP senator or congressman
There are so many ways this can be done - random searches, extra pat downs, more questions, searching of luggage and the subsequent bomb residue test... So many ways these assclowns can be delayed and miss their flights. Waiting for the supervisor to get back from her break is another gem.

The top of the list for this effort should be Mitch McConnell, for he is the main reason this is dragging on.

How many of these working stiffs really support his damn wall when it takes money from their pockets?

That has happened in 2013 and that TSO was disciplined with a several day suspension.

2. Won't be necessary

to intentionally delay. I would suggest you give yourself extra time for security clearance.

Hundreds of Transportation Security Administration officers, who are required to work without paychecks through the partial government shutdown, have called out from work this week from at least four major airports, according to two senior agency officials and three TSA employee union officials.

The mass call outs could inevitably mean air travel is less secure, especially as the shutdown enters its second week with no clear end to the political stalemate in sight.
"This will definitely affect the flying public who we (are) sworn to protect," Hydrick Thomas, president of the national TSA employee union, told CNN.
