    If I were you, and given what I know about teenagers these days (I have one in high school, and one in middle school), I'd suggest that your biggest worry should be that she will text or post someone a picture of her pussy all on her own. That scenario is about 6 million times more likely to occur than the scenario that's got you all twisted and addlepated. Also, you live in S. Louisiana. Her odds of getting knocked up in high school are about 1 in 3. That would involve her SHOWING HER PUSSY to a teenaged boy, up close and personal like.

    This is a great example of a typical behavior engaged in by parents....hyperbole about perceived risks, lack of awareness about the ACTUAL risks.

    Like I said, you're not going to strip search a 90 y/o black maw-maw, if you're looking for white supremist terrorists.

    Good luck 'racially profiling' them.

    Silly Hatuey, don't you know we can recognize terrorists in the airport through keffiyeh scarf they wear for identification purposes?

I know the TSA screeners in my local airport on a first name basis, I see them several times a month, and the same crew has worked there for years (it's a small airport).
    Which exactly explains why you've had little to no problems [nor have I when going out of the small airport near me]. If you traveled out of the likes of JFK, EWR, SFO, LGA, TPA, MIA - big airports in of themselves for the most part, you'll more likely than not get a much more varied set of experiences [like I have] than smaller airport.


    I've done a LOT of traveling across the country, airports big and small, and have seen a lot.

    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    What part of "I've flown in and out of most of the large airports around the U.S." did you miss? Yes, I leave from a small southern airport, but I land in large, URBAN areas because of the work I do...in the past month: LAX, RDU, CLT, and DCA. Reading is an important skill.

    Wouldn't you agree?

    Wow. Thanks for the head pat. I'm sure glad I have a big strong traveling man like you on this board to set me straight about traveling, and the ins and outs of dealing with TSA. You men, you know EVERYTHING.

    Maybe someday they'll let women on planes, too. And not just as wives, either!

Also deleting said HDD at the end of each day helps. Yeah, it could happen, but it is not a big enough risk to not have them implemented because of this.
    There are serious safeguards for credit card #'s, music, movies, health records, etc... that doesn't make them safe nor does it prevent them from leaking on the internet. There is no safeguard that would prevent pictures from getting out on the internet if someone wants them to be there. Safeguards are to make it more difficult - but that does not mean impossible. By admitting no safeguard is 100% effective 100% of the time means that it's not a matter of IF these pictures will be posted - but WHEN.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The scanners are the Libbos's solution to racial profiling. I thought they were bad idea, from the git-go, because, obviously, some little girl's cooter is going to end up on Youtube.
    Flew yesterday to California from Phoenix. And I was selected to have my hands swabbed to determine if I had used chemicals. The African American TSA agent that I was performing this function was only swabbing other African Americans and any with olive or brown skin person.

    She was not swabbing anglo americans hands. My wife was in line, is anglo american, and she was not swabbed. My point is that they are already profiling. Did I mind being swabbed, hell no, but you have anglo waco's that want are domestic terrorist, e.g. McVey, Nichols, Neo Nazis, etc., Why not check everyone. Scanning is good because the present day devices cannot detect weapons made of plastic if carried on you body.

    I get swabbed occasionally, and so does my laptop. I'm a white woman. I'm not sure what the randomization calculation is, but it definitely occurs. Do I mind? Only when I'm running late for my flight. And even then, it's just part of the world we live in, post 9/11.
