    I don't particularly like flying and try to avoid it as much as possible, however over the years for work, I have probably flown more than the average individual. Thankfully I haven't had a "horror story" like some of the ones you see on You Tube and I imagine that overall those types of experiences are very rare. By being organized and prepared, you can make the process a lot easier on yourself. The last time I did go through the nudie scanners and the idea of it did make me uncomfortable. After I passed through, I was stopped and asked if I had something in my pocket. I said no, and showed them that my pocket was empty. The guy said that he needed to check it out and politely explained that he was going to run his hand down my leg, which he then did. He was professional about it and it took seconds. Afterwards he said, your clear, sorry for the delay and have a nice flight.

    I think that the Israel method has a lot of advantages and we should work towards incorporating some of their methods. I also think that having an organization like the TSA instead of eclectic bunch of different security firms has the advantage of standardization. while there is certainly room for improvement, the TSA still has an awful job to do and a large responsibility to get it right.

    I agree 100%.

    I've never hidden the fact that I am ALL for an American Revolution: People vs The System/The Government. Until the people come together to take back this country and our freedoms ...it will be as it is, and get much worse.

    The holidays have nothing to do with it. TSA makes me not want to fly. As Michael Bane says, "TSA is theater for shills." Ask an Isreali security specialist what he thinks of our system.

    Heck, It's only 950 miles-ish. For the price of 4 tickets and a rental car, I can drive a whole lot of miles.

    Wow...you really believe the TSA is for safety? They are there for show. That is all.

    My wife and I, at one time, flew a lot. Not anymore,,,, and will NOT FLY AS LONG as
    the silly crap (TSA) is going on. Stop flying and they will stop the stupid crap.
    My flying days are over,,,,, unless there is NO OTHER POSSIBLE WAY TO GET THERE
    and then I might stay at home.

    Not profiling is stupid,,,, its funny how 90 per cent of the time profiling DOES WORK.
    It is just plain stupid to have to wait 45 minutes while some dumb smuck pats down
    my mother (88) and others who can barely walk.
    It is also getting to expensive.

    If everyone would quit flying until this crap with TSA is done away with, then perhaps the politicians, airlines and powers to be would take notice.

    The only real way to fix it is just to say that you have had enough and boycott airtravel.

    Hit em where it hurts the most...right in the pocket.

    Agreed. The majority of people don't care enough to actually do this, however.

    That's a great quote from Jefferson. I just wonder how bad it has to get before the people decide enough is enough and to hit the reset button.

    If you look at the big picture of what's going on in this country right now, I think that big red button is getting closer and closer. TSA is only a part of it. The 2012 NDAA is another part, as is the Continuity of Government plan. But that's a topic for another discussion.

    Just flew into Florida with my wife and two young kids. Getting though security was a breeze. I was very impressed at how professional the airline was about me traveling with my pistol.

    I have been patted down by TSA I have an internal medical pump in my lower abdomen,I have had to remove my shoes with metal eyelets before,It's a pain due to my disabilities but I no longer fly with anything metal on my shoes,During the patdown it was less invasive than an LEO frisking you for weapons,I showed the guy the area/pump bump and he then let me proceed.I realise that the Israelis have a great Airport security screening process,but in all fairness I don't think that they process 5% of the amount of people that fly everyday in the US
