    Didn't have time to read the entire novel. I understood your point the first time, just thought it was BS. I never liked that type of reasoning. In reality, I need a job to support my family. I can't simply quit because I don't want some dude feeling me up. I don't personally have that big a problem with it, I just didn't like the reasoning, nothing personal.

    Since you're all for the rights of the airlines, maybe you'll help them stifle government intervention, since treating their customers like criminals wasn't their idea, but the governments.

    In a free country, they should have the right set their own standards and people the right of choice to avoid them if they're as paranoid as you, or fly with them if, like me, they realize that TSA is mostly a government public-relations stunt to make flying look more safe to the ignorant and unsophisticated.

    Actually, I believe I will take a third, much more typically American option, or perhaps an amended version of the above. I will follow the rules and then complain about them. With all of the actual rights that we are losing in the name of safety, I'm pretty sure that is one I can still freely exercise. :D

    Fair enough, i did take it personal with the dont be born comment.

    I know you need your job. Its all good.

    As for the posts about rights and stuff, it is a private enterprise. As far as the government stepping in, you know, its real easy to post that " government " is taking over crap.

    When those people were running for their lives as the towers crumbled to the ground, that was their government, our government, taking over to save as many lives as possible.

    Open your eyes a little and think about why, just why we might want to check a person getting on a commercial airliner before it takes off into the sky.
    Think about why we have to keep adopting to information that comes in.

    Sure you can disagree, but if you think your country is safe and sound, like people did on sept 10th, you certainly are the ones acting like sheep.

    If you are paranoid that big brother is taking over your life, get out and vote for those that fight for your values.

    That is pretty much what I do, but somehow I always back the losing side!

    I agree with the rest of what you are saying. It is an impossible problem, and any solution is going to be wrong to a lot of people. I wish there was an easy solution but I sure don't know what it is.
