I kinda like the way some unpaid TSA employees are protesting the government shutdown with music

This is day 26 of the government shutdown in the US. Some 800,000 federal workers, including TSA screeners at airports, missed their paycheques on Friday. But because they’re an essential service, they keep showing up for work (minus those calling in sick) otherwise civil aviation would grind to a halt.

This, however, doesn’t mean they can get in their own little digs. It’s reported that at some airports (JFK included) that uncensored rap songs are being played through the PA systems in the security area.

Like what? The Twitter Machine has reported the following tracks being heard at airports.
