    I thought they did it at certain government buildings, but I can't find anything online. They also search vehicles at the borders.

    Your Constitutional Right against search and seizure does not grant exemptions like this.
    Maybe your interpretation of the 14th amendment doesn't, but mine certainly does.

    Not randomly. At least that I'm aware of and I would be against that. They simply looked underneath ours.

    I'm betting you'll not find any verification on that either.

    Where? At government buildings or the borders? Because they definitely do random vehicle searches are the borders.

    What do you mean? The Supreme Court has already verified it.

    We were going across the border.

    ......but the U.S. Supreme Court has never handed down a nationwide ruling on just what privacy rights an airline passenger has. If and when new measures are challenged, a majority of the justices could decide a passenger gives up the "expectation of privacy" -- the key to invoking constitutional privacy rights -- simply by trying to board an airliner.

    Or they could rule they don't give up their rights to privacy. The 9th have ruled they do but...........

    Funny how Rand was going to an anti-abortion rally where everyone thinks there's no right to privacy like the one Roe v. Wade was based on, huh?

    Give the performance and behavior of the TSA, I would very gladly much rather trust the airlines themselves than the government in this regard.
    That's not what I meant by any stretch. Private companies are notorious for overstepping the boundaries of lethal force in order to protect their assets. Some private employee making 1 mistake would mean a multimillion lawsuit against the company and if the passenger is American, they'd most surely win. Now multiply that by 1 mistake a year (this isn't even the average of **** ups airlines have on their own) and you have a few millions gone down the drain simply on human error. Airlines would either call for the creation of a government agency like the TSA or getting on a plane would be nothing short of a nightmare.

    The airlines were responsible for security before the TSA was created. Airline-run security was in charge on 9/11.

    Terrorist attacks will happen from time to time. The rules of hijacking were different back then. If you played the good victim, you stood good chance of making it out alive. That's over with now. A few tweaks to the existing system would be all that was warranted.
