    Didn't ever say those people weren't responsible, Roger. I'm responsible for damage caused by my accidents, whether it be in a car or on a tile job. I've written citations to many people who've had accidents, and put many of them in jail, sometimes for years, because their accident resulted in someone's death.

    In fact, I wasn't even referring to responsibility in my earlier post. I was simply referring to people who are ready, willing, and able to die in order to accomplish their mission, which is to kill as many Americans as possible. That's markedly different than a drunk driver or speeder. Heck, they're not even in the same class. If they were, we would give speeders and drunk drivers the same punishment as terrorist murders.

    Sorry, a little :ot:

    re: TSA agents: Of course the vast majority of them don't like touching people's groin. They also get paid $12/hr. It's not their fault and it wouldn't surprise me a bit if some of them have quit over this, "You want me to touch his WHAT?!"

    It's not just abusive agents, it's the policy. Security theater (meant to show the veil of security in order to scare off potential attackers) is by nature reactive. These policies: shoes, liquids, toner cartridges, gropings are simply building more and more towards a complete elimination of 4th amendment rights if you choose to get on a commercial airplane.

    So really guys: What's going to happen when a terrorist inevitably decides to attack an airplane with some PETN stuffed up his butt? Is it going to be cavity searches for a random 20% of the flying public? The TSA's policies seem to stem from an assumption that you can prevent bad things from ever happening.

    The biggest security improvement I can see would be the mandatory screening of all cargo. Yes, FedEx is going to have to charge more.

    The point?

    I'm not so sure that dead Americans is the ultimate goal for terrorists. What I think the ultimate goal is for Americans to fear them. Then they use the power of that fear to manipulate us. That way they do not have to lift a finger to destroy our way of life or conquer us to take our freedoms we give them up ourselves!

    The media could not air alot of things that I think we or the others don't need to know. Like this whole wikileeks thing, sensitive info on the news so everyone knows it.

    Boy do I ever agree with that. There are somethings better left unsaid. I see in the news this morning that Interpol is looking ofr the person that is leaking all this stuff.

    Oh man, thats funny.

    I just went through the back scanner xray at Sea-Tac airport, I had on a t shirt, jeans, tighty whiteys, and socks, thats it, no belt, wallet or any papers in any pocket.

    Got the no cost sexual assault as well for some reason....:eek:

    Leaving LAX standing at the Alaska gate after going through security I got the random ID check and a hand swabbing that they ran through what I assume is a explosives residue detector.

    I was on four different flights on this trip and every flight was delayed, any coincidence ? I don't know.
