    How often do you travel overseas without luggage?

    As for paying cash for a plane ticket - that should be outlawed as well. Credit cards only - at least there's some kind of paper trail to follow.

    Nope, I don't believe in that one either. I think once a person has fully completed the punishment as handed down by the courts including community service, parole, etc. that the full of their rights should once again be recognized. But this is a different topic, I don't want to really derail this one.

It's pointless measures to try to make the stupid and fearful feel better. But as this case shows, nothing is going to stop a determined terrorist from getting on the plane with something which could blow it up. It's going to happen. While there are reasonable precautions to take, the current set up and rules go well beyond that. Only stupid people think that the degree to which the TSA goes is necessary and effective. And I for one don't think we should make policy and rules off of what stupid people think.
    With this I do not disagree. My only poiint is that it's not violating your right to be secure in your person and property.

    As I understand it, he didn't CHECK any luggage. This is a common practice among frequent travelers. Even international travelers.

    It is since it's the government doing it. Also, how much of my money goes to subsidize the airline industry? Lots (in the aggregated sense). Those are my planes now!

    So after the guy that shot the liquor store owner during a robbery served his sentence he should be allowed to carry weapons again?

    You do know that our prison system does not rehabilitate cons, don't you.
    Most cons are worse after they get out than before they went in.

    Convicted felons should lose that right forever.

    As I said, another topic. But if you want infinite punishment, it must be life in prison. Otherwise at some point an individual's rights must be recognized in full once again after the appropriate punishment has been served. It's a repercussion of freedom.

    You are kidding, right?

    You commit the crime, you forfeit your rights.

    Do you beleve passengers should be allowed to carry guns on a plane?

    You're free to make a thread about that if you wish, but this thread is about airlines and security issues thereof.
