    Obviously a lesbian out to corrupt children with the gay agenda then.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Re: Six-year-old gets TSA patdown

    I don't see the need to pat down a 6 year old. I disagree with patting down a 6 year old.

    However, I watched the linked video and I believe the TSA officer was very polite and businesslike in the way she approached this. She made sure the mother was right there... she was polite and it appeared somewhat apologetic in demeanor... she explained slowly and carefully what she was about to do each time she touched the child... and I saw no groping, fondling, etc.

    Essentially, I think the TSA officer made the best of a ****ty situation.

    And the child was wonderfully well behaved as well.

    Mom gets a kudos for having such a fabulous child amid a ridiculous situation.

    Only? There are no other tactics that could be used? Really? Yeah... no, there are other tactics. Also, if severe inhumane oppression is what it takes, then that is what it takes. Didn't stop us in good ol' WWII.

    Because it's not a conventional war. Hello? There is no doing again something which is now different. It's not Nazi Germany.
    Right. Yeah. Got it. Not Nazi Germany. Understood. Different. Not the same. OK. It has now sunk in. Whew. Thanks.

    Sorry for being absurd throughout this, but really, I could issue an automated response repeating a few points people don't seem to be able to get over or get around.
    This is not a preposition.

    Why thank you, I certainly feel sparkly today.
    All that glitters does not shine... hey, so are you now ready to explain why we couldn't win?

    A ridiculous situation that is repeated daily and that has no business being conducted...

    That is just a few...

    You explain to your cognitively aware children the reason ... and there is no harm. Your alarmist response will cause more harm.
    You don't explain the reason for a pat down to a 5 year-old, are you nuts? And how do you explain it to a toddler anyway? What's next... search a babies diaper? That could conceal more than that little girls shirt. Get serious. Do you even think before you type?

    I will roam freely in a foreign country without fear.
    What a silly statement. Many countries are lawless wastelands. Go roam freely Juarez and get back to me...

    Come on people ... those whining the loudest would also be finger pointing if crimes occurred inflight or worse ... hi jacking or a nosedive ... or explosion.
    I sure as hell wouldn't... anything else?

    I fly often ... I was just through LAX and they worked to make a smooth yet safe process for travelers. I flown into the mideast, Asia, Central America, Western and Northern Europe. Everyone is cool except for a few who think the TSA actually wants to grope. Get over yourself!
    Did they pat down your child? If not, you can shut up at anytime...

    Terrorists are not beneath using a child or grannie so everyone will go through security.
    You should have no problem pointing out the precedent then... I will just wait. Thanks!

    It is a choice and privilege to fly ... if you do not like it ...use other transportation!
    A privilege? Is that a joke? Anybody can fly if they can pay. How is that a privilege?

So if you want to make this analogy, you need to declare war, embarrass an entire people, force their unconditional surrender, and then start building up.
