    LOL, and the TSA isn't causing any problems.

    P.S. I never called for checkpoints. Since you seem to not want to discuss what I actually proposed there really is nowhere to go.

    I don't think it would be ruled unconstitutional in the former case if they were also searching people and bags that seemed 'suspicious' in addition to the 23rd person.
    Hopefully we get to find out

    .Perhaps, but I doubt he'll get far. He would need to sway public opinion.
    No he doesn't. He needs the courts to rule it is unconstitutional. It matters none what public opinion is. Public opinion was fully behind McCain/Feingold.

    As far as the political correctness in searching, the terrorist want to fit the profile, they are doing these attacks for a reason and they want you to know it was them. How many 80 year old ladies in wheel chairs have been caught in a terrorist attack?

    The Fourth Amendment sets the standard for invasive searches of a person's property, papers, or person. The TSA's actions do not meet this standard.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    I applaud Paul for standing up for what he believes in and raising awareness of the TSA's onerous screening process.

    How did he do any of that? He just got searched. Big deal.

    Are you that dumb?

    The terrrorists aren't that dumb.

    They'll hide a bomb in an old lady's wheelchair, or disguise themselves as an old lady. Duh.

    Profiling is stupid, not PC.

    When did I say it wasn't causing any problems? Strike one for putting words in my mouth.

    You asked me how TSA actions would be different from having random searches in the inner city. I told you what I think such searches would entail and that all that such searches would entail (including checkpoints) would be ridiculous. How else would you expect me to answer the question if not by addressing what I think random searches in the inner city would entail?

    Hopefully we get to find out
    Fine by me. I'm already pretty certain how it will turn out.

    No he doesn't. He needs the courts to rule it is unconstitutional. It matters none what public opinion is. Public opinion was fully behind McCain/Feingold.
    Cool.
