    I understand that anyone can steal a uniform, therefore there must be due diligence in screening anyone.

    However, they DAMN well better be extremely respectful and discreet in doing so, while thanking them profusely for their service and sacrifice.

    The TSA is suffering from the same 'disease' that many educators, politicians, etc. are suffering from..... lack of common sense, critical-thinking skills, and personal responsibility/accountability.

    We are so screwed up as a country now that I don't know how it can be fixed.

    Well, getting rid of the TSA and allowing the airlines to do their own screening would be a start.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    I believe American airports should initiate the Israeli Method with multiple layers of security. Upon activation TSA is terminated immediately and the agency shutdown 100% including the head of the agency. All TSA has shown America is they have too many knuckleheads working with airport travelers.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    I'll never forget the one time that I flew EL-AL into Israel. The flight attendants were muscular 280lb scar-faced, knuckle-dragging hairy apes stuffed into trim flight suites and politely serving our drinks. I never felt safer in my life.

    Flying out (I'm easily profiled), I was politely 'interviewed' by a pretty, uzi-carrying young lady that scared the poo out of me.
