TSA stands for ??

In many a podcast, Dave mentions the TSA and becomes almost apoplectic trying to come up with a phrase that would match the TSA letters. Some of his choices normally start with "Totally Stupid Agency" or... As a regular listener, I would like to offer the following: "Theatrical Scaremongering Aggrandizers" .

Doesn't exactly flow off the tongue, does it? Does anyone else have an idea that we can offer Dave?

It's actually their mission statement:

"To Slow All"

How about "They're So Anal"?

I have a 45 minute commute each morning and afternoon-I've got too much time to think about these things.
