Default crap like this makes me fume...

im sure this has been posted before.

what the hell is wrong with the country/world we live in? i think we are at the point that the only way we can truly be saved is for mother nature to step up and hit the flush button.

A society that will trade its freedom for security, will have neither.

Clearly, TSA is a huge expense to this country and there is a tremendous amount of waste involved with them, but that's another thread altogether.

Shoe bombs, plastic explosives, plastic guns, hijackers, 9/11, we've all seen kids that have been used to smuggle drugs, so what else will their parents place on them.... point is you can't put anything past the "evil-doers" of the world to try.

Sometimes innocent people get caught in the crossfire of safety. They've searched my bags, and I've gladly let them. I feel better when they do a mass search right before boarding as well.

I say search anyone that stands out for any reason whatsoever, search randomly as well, so all of us can fly safely.

Was taking my Mother-in-law home to die after 6 months at MD Anderson in Houston, after chemo and stem cell transplant failed. Wheelchair bound, 75lbs, gaunt, sick as hell, they wouldn't let her unless she removed her hat covering her bald head. They took away the one thing that gave her some dignity. While this was going on I noticed they let a towel head through that refused to take his turbin off. Pieces of shit!

Seems like you are OK with the video. I fly alot and I dont ever get the "warm fuzzies" knowing that TSA is on the job. These idiots couldnt find a terrorist if he walked up wearing a sign. The little kids and the grandma searches are getting stupid

But at least no one can accuse them of racial profiling.

They might not say they profile but they do to a certain extent. I travelled with two guys who worked for the government of Egypt. They were inspecting some plants for export. They were clean cut and wore nice sport coats. However, their names were something like Mohammed and Siad (sp?). They got pulled out of line to the extra security at every airport. Both of them. When they got to Dulles to fly back, Air France took their passports to check against some list that they had. They disappeard for about 30 minutes before coming back with their passports.

The original post, I hear ya nate. Crazy stuff. I travel so much I don't think much about it anymore but yes they do that crap to little old ladies in wheel chairs and moms and kids.

Of course they do. Anyone who thinks otherwise is not paying attention.

And it doesn't just happen at the airport. It's how a lot of rings (cells) have been busted.

Actually if you research bombings in Iraq and Afghanistan, you'd KNOW that terrorists are using women and children as human bombs. And right now, as all you people rant about how outrageous this is, al quaeda is building a wheelchair-leg cast bomb and it will kill people. Congrats on making us less safe.

Funny that when 9/11 first happened and "liberals" were upset about invasions of privacy, "non-liberals" all jumped on the "Well its for national security and if you're not a terrorist you have nothing to worry about".

Remember saying that?
