    Ah go take your blatant baiting and stuff it.

    Why the **** should we bend over and throw away our rights, when doing so in the fashion these pat down methods and body scanner force us to, isn't even needed to keep us safe? To appease to the people whom blindly support them, and in the case of a lot of those blindly supporting these measures, people whom come off as being too stupid to even do a 2 second Google search to get basic facts about what is causing the controversy in the first place?

    If one is so afraid of the absurdly minuscule chance of dying on board the statistically safest mode of transportation SO MUCH SO that he or she somehow believes the lack of these specific methods will make flying insanely dangerous, perhaps that person, and not the one who takes the small chance, whom shouldn't fly.

    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.

    If one is so afraid of the absurdly minuscule chance of dying on board the statistically safest mode of transportation SO MUCH SO that you somehow believe the lack of these specific methods will make flying uber dangerous, YOU don't fly.
    If the general public feels unsafe on airplanes, they won't fly. If they don't fly, our economy's in deep ****...or should I say, deeper ****. Call it what it is and you'll get no complaint from me -- but call it groping, raping, nudie booths, yada yada yada, and you're a crybaby. A whining one at that.

    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Take off your clothes (or leave them on - your choice) & Show your Ass, folks, if you want to fly.

    Pornography, in the form of pictures of Terminal body Scans, now available at all Airport gift shops.

    Just go to Terminal 13, and ask for the porno Sales desk, before leaving the Airport.

    They will be happy to Sell to you all the dirty that you want, and may your Airport experience be a happy and horny one.

    This message brought to you by the TSA - Adult entertainment* and protective services while you wait.

    * We are such whores.

    ** Taxes and surcharges apply.

    *** Service not available to Bill Clinton, John Edwards, Larry Craig, or Diaper Dave Vitter.

    And yet if that lawyer's wife and children died in a terrorist attack involving airplanes, I bet he would be the first to file lawsuits against Janet Napolitano, John Pistole, the Department of Homeland Security and the TSA for not doing more to prevent it.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Ah, the old red herring [and false contradiction] that commonly gets brought up in this discussion [wherever it is online, or offline].

    The opposition is to these specific pat down methods, and the body scanners - both of which have very gaping holes, neither of which has stopped anything, or thwarted anyone. You can oppose these specific measures and still want better security - you can have better security without these specific measures.

    Not having these /specific/ measures doesn't make the likelyhood of getting killed in an airplane any more or less likely than without them.

    [and don't even get me started on the TSA's claims with regards to the images made from these things]

You can oppose these specific measures and still want better security - you can have bnetter security without these means. Hell, even with the TSA as it is, they aren't exactly doing as good a job as the quoted statements seem to imply.
    And how is it that you know having these procedures in place hasn't thwarted anyone? The people guilty of this crap haven't exactly been rocket scientists. We've had a shoe bomber, an underwear bomber -- both of which would have been stopped by security measures now in place.

    The ultimate truth is that the public must feel safe. If they don't feel safe, they won't travel. Why just knock what's being done? What's your suggestion? Or should we just wait for a DC10 to come down out of a dark sky and watch all hell break loose? Or maybe listen to the cellphone calls of passengers being hijacked into the ground?

    Something is better than nothing. So. What's your plan?

    And that still doesn't negate the premise of my post.
