    There were 3 low probability events that happened on 9/11. It killed 3000+ people. So yeah, admittedly, the probability of it happening is small. But when it does happen....and it DOES happen....it has the potential to kill thousands. Sorry but thousands of lives is worth far more than a little inconvience of going through extra security. If you don't like airport security then how about taking a train? Or a car? Or if you must your feet? Those options are available to you so TSA is not really hindering any of your rights. Especially since there is nothing on the law books that gives you the "right" to fly.

    There is no right to fly, but there are certainly privacy and property rights of my own. Additionally, my tax money keeps those damned airlines afloat; so I own part of it. Additionally, while low probability events will, given enough time, be realized; they are still low probability. So 9 years ago, a terrorist attack occured that killed almost as many people as cars do every year. Been 9 years. Given enough time, we'll have another terrorist attack. Then people will go crazy again for awhile. But until terrorist attacks on our soil get to the level of cars; it will remain low probability and something we don't need to freak out about. Be cautious about? Sure, we can take reasonable steps. But we don't need to go insane.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Your privacy does not extend beyond your front door and beyond your car. A few years ago a judge showed that by telling celebrities that the paparazzi can follow them and take pictures of them where ever they go when a suit was brought up against the paparazzi.

    ugh...I have more to say but I have to take my daughter to school now and help out at the school...will be back later.

    Dang it. I had more to say but for the life of me I can't think of what I was going to say atm...grrrrr hate when that happens. I'll cogitate on it a bit and hopefully it will come to me. Just didn't want you think that I had skipped out on the conversation.
