    The fundamental problem here for you, Boo, is that I didn't. The closest I came, at all, was to say that there are those who have gone through it who thought so.

    So, all this "hyperbole" bull**** is exactly that. You simply dismiss any argument as such.

    Congress did not mandate these procedures.

    And even if they did, it doesn't matter, as per point #2 which you quoted.

    No, the rules and regs were put in place by order of the Congress of the United States of America. I merely included the public poll to show that those with strenuous objections are in a definite minority.

    Oh, I get it -- you making a childish statement isn't really "childish," but if someone says it applies to you, no, that's childish.

    I'm sure that 4 out of 5 Americans were for segregation 50 years ago, so what's your point??

    Very few people fly regularly and fewer have flown since these draconian rules went into affect. As more and more people see what's going on (probably a lot over the Thanksgiving weekend) there will be a larger and larger uproar.

    No, Congress created Homeland Security. Homeland Security and TSA wrote the rules and regulations.

    Agreed that there are jerks everywhere, but nobody claimed that this was "typical behavior" in 2008. If this behavior is deemed acceptable, we can all be sure that there will be more of it.

    I take it from your response that you don't think this was sexual assault or harassment in any way, shape, manner or form, and that you would think a simple complaint to the supervisor would be an adequate response if you were the one who had been victimized.

    I think this is a fact that should be repeated a lot more than it is. I trust my fellow passenger to handle a situation a lot more than some TSA flunkie's screening abilities. I suspect the odds are pretty good that on most flights there is at least one military or police member who is trained far better than 90% of the TSA. Plus, the person on a plane with a bomb has a helluva lot more motivation to shut down any incident than a TSA clown on the ground.

    For years we were told by the state to acquiesce to terrorists' demands when a hijacking occurs. Obviously that was totally wrong. Now we're being told all kinds of things about this virtual strip search and/or fondling system in place now. Why should I believe any of this?

    Very true. Last year the underwear bomber was thwarted by a Dutch tourist.

    We are told that these measures have to be in place because of the underwear bomber, when that man boarded the plane in Amsterdam in the first place NOT here, and Dutch authorities ignored warning signs and red flags including his own father pleading with them to watch out.

    This is the "crisis going to waste" theory. And it might interest people to know that not only does former HS Sec Chertoff have a stake in these machines, but up until two days ago so did a company Called OSI, owned and funded by Geo. Soros.
