I feel SO much safer now seeing how our tax dollars are at work.

As I have said before, anyone who knows anything about the air transport system knows that TSA is useless window dressing.

Yep, TSA is a fine incompetent gov't agency. Several years ago the sorry asses at the TSA refused to board an Army officer who was shot all to hell in Iraq. The mans jaws were wired shut. He carried a small pair of wire cutters to cut the wires in case he had to puke. These TSA idiots strip search grandmothers and kids while letting men dressed in Muslim garb walk on the plane.

This sorry crap makes me wanna puke.

I have two thoughts about this TSA harassment of returning US Soldiers.....TSA, a Govt. Agency is likely filled with hires who have the desire to Lord it over on others, racists of a minority group who hate the majority of the American population, and real cop wannabees...Second, the rules that govern their actions likely dreamed up by some nitwit with no idea of whats right and whats wrong with the TSA system in it's entirety....Go automobile and leave the driving to yourself !

What are their qualifications for hiring? They ask them to count to twenty, and if they do it with their shoes still on they're too smart for the job?
What part of 'shall not be infringed' confuses people?

I was talking about it on Facebook, no common sense these days. However though, all citizens should be treated equally: the solution shouldn't be to prevent soldiers from having their nail clippers but ALLOWING EVERYONE to have theirs. Everything can be made into a weapon, a belt can strangle someone, the buckle can knock someone out. This whole war on terrorism and drugs is destroying our rights and privacy. If we lived life based on a probability of 0.0000000001% that something bad could happen, we wouldn't live at all. And yet we have to surrender a bunch of objects that hardly present any threat, "better be safe than sorry" has a limit when it treads on my rights.
Remember this when you support the labeling and tracking of people and the complete digital takeover of commerce:

"It causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand of the forehead so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name" Revelations

"So you say your prayers and you thank the lord, for that peace maker in the dresser drawer"
