As for pat downs, I'm not one to be super sensitive about a professional person just doing their job. I wouldn't object to a pat down from a police officer to prove I'm no danger, and I would not object to a TSA officer either. And the same thing goes for the "virtually strip searched machines".
    Today its just virtual strip searches tomorrow it could be the real thing, random cavity searches and this being implemented in Bus stations,highways and other places. You may love the idea of getting people used to their rights being forked over and living in a police state, I do not.


    What's the big freaking deal? Are people that sensitive about others seeing their silver parts? I can understand some people having religious complaints, but otherwise I just don't get why people are so sensitive about their anonymous silver junk being seen on a TV screen for 15-20 seconds by a professional TSA officer.
    So you wouldn't mind if it was your 13 year old daughter(I believe 12 and under are not subjected to the virtual strip searches), niece or little sister's silver anonymous silver junk being seen on a TV screen for 15-20 seconds by a professional TSA officer.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Just put up a big sign and a bell button. Have the sign read "Push button to enter aircraft" in Arabic. Take the button pushers to a room and read "The Pet Goat" to them in English. Anyone sitting through the whole story should be promptly arrested.

    I'm not one to believe every slippery slope theory I hear. Nor am I one to believe everyone watching those TV screens is a deviant.

    I think we should waterboard everyone wishing to get on an airplane. It's not torture, so we're good there, and if you're innocent you've got absolutely nothing to fear!

    Invasive pat downs
    Non invasive pat downs.
    Subjected to radiation so you and or your children can be virtually stripped searched.
    Real strip searches.
    Cavity search.
    Walking through a metal detector.
    other
    Cavity searches are going way too far, even if it does feel good.

    Uh, who draws the line on non-invasive pat downs? Is face slapping permissible?

    Does bump and grind music accompany strip searches?

    The El Al airport procedures and in-flight safeguards work for me.

    In addition, all El Al passenger aircraft are equipped with an anti-missile system.

    Wasn't the last hijacking of an El Al aircraft the one back in 1976?

    I'd defer to Tashah on this one. Whatever Israel does, they do a damned good job of it.

    I would be good with metal detectors, non-invasive patdowns, minimal profiling, and one option not mentioned - air marshals on international flights. Armed ones. Ones that won't have any qualms about putting a bullet in the back of your head if you don't do as you're told.

    Sounds like you are looking for new love in your life. There is nothing that can be done to insure your safety, that's life.

    Israeli has the best method.
