    Your reading skills suck.
    As do your posting skills.

    I assume your quote here meant the public service airlines, right? Oh wait... there IS no 'public service' airline, is there. Just private airlines. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

    Instead of just throwing that out on the table, how 'bout you explain how positive law and natural rights apply to this argument? This isn't a quiz show.

    Positive law = government creates rights. Natural law = humans are born with rights.

    This is pretty basic stuff ...

    And this relates to the subject at hand.....how? That you have a natural right to fly on a private airline without regard to regulations? You can't even do that if you own your own plane. This argument is getting ridiculous. When you are trying to claim that flying on an airplane is your inalienable right, well.....pfft.

    You must be a bugger at a traffic stop. After all, it's your inalienable right to drive too, right?

    So you have nothing further to contribute. Thanks.

    I don't know why I bother trying to explain anything to you. All that ever happens is you end up totally misinterpreting what I've said, go off on some idiotic tangeant based upon that, then end up with some smartass remark. It's a total waste of effort to hold on any sort of conversation with you that would actually require any sort of neural activity on your part, I guess.

    Oh well. Carry on without me, dearie.

    Honestly the metal detectors and a non invasive pat downs are all that is needed. Although, when I fly home Monday I may ask for an invasive pat down so I can say some one else touched my junk and not be lying.

    Because the full body scanners give you a very unhealthy dose of radiation that is why pilots are now refusing to go through them, and I wouldnt call feeling up someones "groan" or breasts a professional search. The reason they do the pat downs is to scare the public into using the body scanners.
