    Bomb sniffing dogs. They are more accurate than machines, don't see you naked and don't need to feel you up.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Why are the conservatives joining the anarchists in attacking the people who are trying to keep us safe? It's so wrong.

There is absolutely no evidence that anything the TSA is doing is protecting anyone, they have NEVER caught a single terrorist in the act of trying to get on a plane.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Anarchists?

    On what basis do you make such a claim?

    And on what basis does "trying to keep us safe" excuse doing things that are not just ineffective, but invasive as well? As far as I'm concerned, the fact that these are federal agents makes me think they need to be held to HIGHER standards in regards to the balancing act that is needed - between keeping us safe and not being overtly intrusive - a test which, IMO, digital strip searches and pat downs that involving reaching down pants/touching genitalia fails miserably.

    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    It just goes to show how asinine and over reacting our government has become since 9/11. I am all in favor of behaviorial profiling and that should definately be used but as for the "let's single him out cuz he is brown" will fail horribly and any white pyscho that wants could go right through. Now if you have a decent sharp person doing behavorial profiling you will save lives, dollars, time, and humility.

    Re: Do you support the TSA procedures

    I haven't been following this whole TSA like . . . at all, but from the scanner photos I've seen, and the pat downs I've been given in the past, I don't object.

    It's really not a big deal, people. Unless the guard squeezes my balls and goes "mmm mmm mmm," I can't understand why I should be offended.

    There could be a case made here that you may be biased
