Been here a lot about this ~ The shirts that are coming out and utube clips are too funny!
I don't think it's a big deal, but then again I'm not a person who gets all crazy about "personal freedoms" and "privacy" like a lot of people do. If the government wants to tap my phones, monitor my internet usage, install a tracking chip in my wrist, and scan me with their body scanner as I go through the airport, it really doesn't bother me one bit.
I use my iPad to shield off the deadly rays...
I'll let you know after Thanksgiving. We are flying out to Las Vegas for the weekend (leaving Wednesday at 8:00am. Are we crazy or what? Don't answer that!). I am definitely not looking forward to going through security. I just want to get on the plane (with my iPad of course!) and get to where I am going!
it is as the lady who was just won her seat in congress said this statemnt on tv about the patdowns .. it is Japanese Kubuki theatre for the American public to put on a show them ...
as a women i think you would understand this ..it more about them putting there hands into places as adult on a child that iam not flavorable because of the teaching of the child that the no one touchs them this way and now they are beening basic felt up by a person..so as a father of four girls do i want some stange person feeling up my girls --no-but HECK NO IN THAT AREA..
i can understand the fact with a name that might not sound as total American as jones or smith ..but i have say that flying into and out of Israel was a lot less of a hassle than flying now and it was quicker they have offer to show us the system but the top heavy knuckleheads of the TSA wants to spend the tax payer money on something that is getting into the personal privacy areas that the book 1984 warned us about ..
they are not going to be happy with the american people are in orange jumpsuits with leg irons and shackles on the wirst and then you can fly on the plane just like con-air like the US marshel runs on a daily bases for the flights to pick up people from all over the states and the world
the problem has been with the tsa is that do something only after the horse has gotten out of the barn not before for now it has grow to over 67 thousand people working in the airport and they still can not figure a way out to do the job ..one airport failed 22 times out of 24 times there socalled security test where the failed to catch the items that was in the carry on bag ..
remember this simple statement ..you as a paying person who is paying for the ticket to get on the airline who should the ticket have a basic right to some basic things about personal space....this does get into some personal space issuse about your basic rights..

All the prudes and liberals, will wail and moan until they stop the searches and THEN, when someone blows up a plane or shoots a bunch of people on a plane, EVERBODY will scream that the TSA didn't do their job. Dammed if you do, dammed if you don't!

It wont bother me one bit as I have been patted down and wanded every time I fly and that is about six times a year. I have two artificial knee joints so I have to tell them up front so its into the booth lift the pant legs and go through the whole nine yards while everybody was looking at me as if I had a weapon on me. So its no change for me.
it more of a simple fact that the tsa is not working along with the basic fact of your body langauge and other things that you should be watching for when in the airport ..
first it was the shoe bomber .now you take your shoes off
then it was the guy who tried to mix two items togerther make a bomb so no more large bottles on planes.
now it the underwear bomber and now we are getting pat downs ..
it not like the people who are working the security system outside the country is doing the right type of security for them to find this guys before something happens right
but as soon as something happened outside the country on a inbound flight to the states we go through a another step of beening treated like cattle on the flight ..it was a person named jones or smith who flew the planes into the building it was people who name is middle eastern sounding..i know that not p.c here but it the truth and the truth is getting farther from the everyday life ..for to many groups that support the socalled effect and backlash againest the middle eastern type saying that we are profileing them and that wrong .. so guess what stop beheading people about the socalled ways of your religon and i will not make you strip search going through the airport to fly that how easly it is in the doing it right the first time ..
wrong is not saying to the outside world here is the trouble makers and we we do want needs to be done ..that way i think of Israel as my second home for not that it right or wrong but it does what needs to be done ..it nut cutting time and it getting done .. so if it gets so bad here i might move there for i know i will be safe when flying in and out of the airport ..
do not what i was taught many years ago in Germany where i was stationed at the time about the world of Terroist is that the make the other country make there own people insecured about themself and you have won the battle in the public eye for they will become more p.c. about searching a person who last name is middle eastern ..
do not belive me look at Paris France and how the west has caved into the demands of the muslin world there about the rioting and burning of the people personal items ..
look at point in many world newpapers about the simple statement .. if you make fun of the muslin or the leader of the muslin faith you are marked for death or there public outcrys and riots and other things about the person ..
look at England and other western European countrys right now for the socalled peacefull religon is takeing over peice by piece in the areas ..firs it simple things then it changeing of your laws to meet there laws not them changeing to us and our laws ..
it time to stop beening p.c about and if you name is something that comes from the middle eastern area of the world and you get on a plane then the only way for you to fly is a complete search of his body and luggage ..
the problem is we are paying for them to search us and treat us like cattle instead of the person who paying for the salary of the people in the airline..
so how far must it go before we have enough of the problems that this people of that faith brings down onto us.. we are at war and it starting in nov 4.1979 and you better get your head wraped around that fact.. for they kill as many as they need to get the point across that are going to take over the world and they will stop at nothing intill they do and they are winning for they are slowly chipping away at the basic personal right that we have in this country of our ..
