    You're only giving in to the hysteria yourself by playing the "OMG, take my liberties and privacy to stop the terror" card.

    You've seen polls of people who have gone through it? Point to these. G'head.

    You have a habit of freely declaring "fact" when there is none. I'll declare mine: when Democrats do it, Boo Radley thinks it's fine. When Republicans do it, Boo Radley thinks it's a crime against humanity.

    I've seen polls of people. However, how many do you think have gone through it? How many are complaining?

    And I wasn't aware this was a partisan issue. Are democrats doing or TSA? Is there a republican TSA and democat TSA?

    What I appose, across the board, regardless of party, is hyperbolic exaggeration. No one is being fondled.

    Enough. By this reasoning, if few complain about random searches of homes in any given neighborhood, then it's OK.


    And I wasn't aware this was a partisan issue. Are democrats doing or TSA? Is there a republican TSA and democat TSA?


    Was it the Republicans or the FBI/NSA doing warrantless wiretaps? I didn't know there was a Republican FBI or NSA.

    In any case:



    This doesn't happen without her approval.

    Yeah. You've never engaged in that, ever.

What stops a few terrorists from stashing body armor and AR15's in a duffel back, going to the restroom, then coming out as Rambo? How many people could you shoot in a crowded airport with a 90 round drum magazine? With a little training, you could easily take down the out-gunned security guards--maybe even escape if you plan well. Even Infinity Ward thought of it!

    Yeah, but unfortunately your cohorts shoot you in the head at the end.

Good God people we all have the same equipment! Get a grip you're not in Cub Scouts anymore! I also would think it would be harder to touch some other guy's "junk" than have mine touched. How'd you like to do that every day if you're straight? Yuck!

    Hey take your pick. Blown apart at 30,000 feet at 70 below zero or a body scan. Personally I find the scan a lot less intimidating.

    If you can't be checked for contraband don't get on my GD airplane. Take a car, bus, or train!
    You didn't read one iota of this thread before you posted that tripe, did you?

    I'll ask you, since you have all the answers - how does one visit family in China in a timely manner without flying?

    No I don't, because it isn't the same thing. The partriot act gives too much power to people doing nothing more than being at home or going to work. People at the airport are getting on a plane were something did go wrong, have had a problem, and people have tried to smuggle something on to. A real difference.

    I see the rationale. Nothing bad ever happens at home or work. It's always on those darn airplanes.

    No, that would not be my reasoning. Only pointing out that just because a few complain, that also doesn't mean it is wrong.




    Was it the Republicans or the FBI/NSA doing warrantless wiretaps? I didn't know there was a Republican FBI or NSA.
    Would it be right or less right either way? It was wrong then and is wrong now. Agian, not a partisan thing.






    Yeah. You've never engaged in that, ever.
    Certainly try not to. Yourself?
