    I saw two TSA agents start fighting each other in the security line in NC a few years back.

    I fly on average at least twice a year. And I have done so since before 9/11. They really have gone too far. It really isn't necessary for the small amount that they likely prevent with the new security measures.

    And yes, it is very annoying to fly when everyone has to stand in line and is treated like we're all terrorists because they can't figure out how that we are already relatively as safe as we are going to get. In fact, we were almost as safe as we were going to get before 9/11. The biggest failure in our security prior to 9/11 was that everyone was taught that if terrorists take over your plane, you do nothing to provoke them and you will get out alive, no matter what they are using to hold the plane with.

    I don't like losing freedom for security. Terrorist attacks are tragic but lost freedom is worse.

    Yes, good little sheeple is how they want you. Now turn you head forward and continue to wait in line.

    I have highlighted the parts of your post which show why the supposed aggression of te TSA is not common place or even something the majority of passengers deal with.

    That's because if you complain too loudly in line, you'll likely see some consequences there of. The fact of the matter is that terrorism plots which blow up planes are exceedingly rare events, low probability systems which have little to no significant impact on the chances of death in life. The overreaction of government and the aggressive search procedures used are unwarranted.

    What continues to stun me is the lack of common sense--making a state senator remove his prosthetic leg, refusing to allow a Green Beret with documentation to fly because he is carrying a little screwdriver to undo part of his jaw wiring if he chokes, the groping of people like Geraldo Rivera. No common sense. No decency in the humiliation of old ladies whose Depends are checked.

    And for the partisan quip of the day... wasn't the TSA brought to us by a Republican administration and Congress?
    What president is running the TSA now? Are you saying Obama has no control? Thanks for confessing what most thinking people know.
