    Everything starts out with good intentions it seems but slowly turns sour. Look at the number of fumbling Barney Fife TSA agents at your entry point the next time you fly.

    Put one retired Marine DI with a loaded M-16 at the metal detector and call it a day. The money would be better spent on more uncover Sky Marshalls on planes.

    As for the innocent baby, I really wouldn't put it past Al qaeda from inserting a bomb into the anal cavity of a baby.

    Note to self: Get every baby placed on no-fly list.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Everyday millions of people all over the US fly without a problem. We're talking about thousands of daily flights where nobody is flagged as being a terrorist. A few mistakes get made every now and then and people are calling for the defunding of the TSA. Frankly, it's ridiculous.

    Hatuey-

    You are no fun at all!!!!!

    I fly a lot, seem the 'undercover' air marshall's, they stick out badly. Flew when armed soldiers patrolled the terminals. Been frisked and questioned, all things considered nothing I didn't go through getting into many bars.

    Funny when they pooch the deal everyone stands up and barks like a well trained dog.

    The oddest thing about it all is most the whiners don't fly, are clueless what really happens...

    But damn sure have to rant away...

    I actually laughed out loud when I heard this story.

    Mistakes happen I don't see the issue.

    I went though Charlotte Douglas and Pheonix International last month. Boring flights to say the most. Got frisked 2 times and then the small bother of having to answer a few questions. Then I got on a plane. Ive grown a bead and have my daughters name and Arabic writing on both arms. NOTHING happened to me. I wasnt taken aside, I wasnt flagged, I wasnt even asked about some of the pottery I bought in Phx. However like you suggested, most people who bitch about he TSA dont fly regularly. Id be willing to bet dollars to rocks that some of them havent even been on a plane in the last 6 months.

    I wouldn't say we fly without a problem. Huge use of TSA affects everyone going through the airport. And yes, some get through and yes TSA should be defunded. Mostly because TSA is an aggressive branch of the military making inexcusable breaches of privacy and search. And that's not just some isolated case, it's generalized use of government force.

    Who are we? I fly a minimum of 4 times a month and have yet to see any aggression from the TSA. ****, most people clap at the end of the flight for the people ensuring they make it to the other side without blowing up in mid air. Your emotional and completely disconnected opinion is noted though. I only see responses like yours on websites. Most people at airports go through without complaining. It must be like a meme where you get points for joining the sheep and complaining about an agency you seldom deal with.
