    One day, a bomber is going to set off an explosive he had hidden in his butt.

    At what point will Americans finally have enough?

    So what is the TSA going to do when female terrorists have a C4 boob job?
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    My wife has to fly for a job interview in a couple weeks. She is a breast cancer survivor and during reconstruction things did not go well, of the 3 types of reconstruction (tram-flap, latisimousdorsie (?) and implant) she had all 3 on one side and needless to say it doesn't feel anything close to natural. She is already getting upset at these reports thinking about what she may be in for

    Some of us have had enough. I decided two years ago that I would only fly in emergencies. Otherwise, I like to drive. Yes, it may take longer to get there, but when I drive I am still treated like a human being and not dangerous cargo. The up side is that this country is still beautiful in many places and it can not be appreciated from an airplane.

    As noted, explosives can be implanted or inserted inside the body. Metal detectors in conjunction with the "poof" explosives residue detectors are better than these scanners or groping techniques.

    Even better than that are the Israeli security techniques. Nuff said.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    We need to stop profiling things and start profiling people....
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Candidly, I'm getting tired of the hype and the media's efforts at turning the TSA into the bad guys.

    What would you all prefer? Nothing? Or profiling, as the Israeli's do? Israel airline security personel interview every single passenger, so get ready to have to be at the airport four hours before your scheduled flight.

    If you've been in an airport screening line lately, within the last week or so, and you listen to people coming out of the scanners, most of them are surprised that there's been all this hoopla -- I've heard people say, "is that all there is to it?", or "I don't see what the big deal is." People have a choice: scan or pat down. If you decline the scan, you will get patted down. So take the scan if you don't want to be patted. It's not a big deal. Or .... here's a choice: don't fly.

    And yes, I'm tired of all the "don't let the terrorists win by making us scared", and all that crap. Nonsense.

    Time for folks to adopt a little common sense, and candidly, TSA is not the bad guys.

    I do agree with this, btw. I'll live with the profiling. I'd rather be the victim of a profiling mistake and at least know people are really watching. Of course, at six foot three with graying red hair and a classic Irish face, chances are good I won't often be mistaken for Achmed.

    TSA is not the bad guys indeed, but they are the inept guys. Wrong is wrong.

    They chose the wrong equipment for the job by ignoring radiation issues. They chose the wrong equipment for the job by
    using software which shows too much. They have completely failed to convince that pics can't be taken.

    Even in the medical world there are mess ups with overdoses of radiation which sometimes go on for very long times till a defective machine is detected. You can't be certain these devices work properly, are maintained properly, or are giving off the dose and amount of radiation you are being told about.

    But radiation aside, they have simply over-reached.

    As for the pat -downs, they have turned themselves into the bad guys by showing a total disrespect for people, for us.

    Pistole has been disingenuous. He tries to damp down the ire by promising there will be less intrusive ways in the future. Note, he continues to claim a right to be intrusive. Sorry, wrong is wrong.

    As a Dem, as an O supporter, I am convinced that Pistole and Napolitano need to be fired immediately. I made my decision when voting based in large part on the abysmal record of the previous 8 years with respect to privacy, the Patriot Act, and constitutionally suspect practices. The last thing I expected was a continuation of past abuses. Certainly not the present extension of them.

    We are (and have been) on a slippery slope and are accelerating downhill too rapidly. This dust up proves it.
