    That one thing would very likely have bankrupted two US airlines and their insurance companies. IMHO, the smart call would have been to have let that happen and to ground all airlines until security was improved. The government should provide security standards and personnel to check for compliance but not to assume security responsibility directly - especially, after the fact.

    What are the odds that these two unionized, government employees will get their jobs back and if they don't there will be human rights lawsuits filed for discrimination based on sexual orientation?
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Half of the problems; if not more are from our own poor decisions in that region of the world.
    I do not disagree that we have made (and continue to make) poor foreign policy decisions. What, exactly, do you suggest that we do to get all of that toothpaste back into the tube? When someone declares war on the US that is not time to say that we deserved it - that is time to defend ourselves from attack by eliminating the attackers.

    Not really though, or they'd have arrested him and brought criminal charges. If a crime is seen, it can be reported and acted on and they claim his hands were turned the wrong way. If that's groping and the authorities saw it, then a crime occurred. IF they didn't arrest, one did not.

    TSA is terrible and I hate it. So, so, so much. But it doesn't mean it isn't useful. I think people underestimate the psychological impact airport security has on peoples confidence in flying. Even if they don't acknowledge or realize it.

    TSA application is incredibly long, both in waiting just to get to the interview part and getting through all the steps, oh and waiting some more until you get drawn from the pool of qualified workers. IIRC after all that (and training) you start on probation for a year and can be fired for pretty much anything, as well as randomly tested.

    When I applied I recall it being more then minimum wage, see the lowest pay band is pretty close to it though (link below). Maybe locality pay here bumped it up a good bit *shrugs*. Get better benefits then most minimum wage jobs, as far as I'm aware.

    The article explained why there wasn't charges filed. The man in question didn't report it and thus the government hasn't done anything.

    No, the best solution is to leave and never come back.

    You want to see what works the best follow what we did to the USSR where we showed them how much better it is when we extend a hand of peace instead of war.

    We've never done that in the region.

    I haven't flown since before 9/11. Guess why.
