    Calm down D...remember, now that these screeners are federal they're "Professional"! Well that's what Congress told us, anyway.:rolleyes:

    *Or was that The Department of Homeland Security?*

    Crazy as it is, if the law isn't carried out equally, sure as hell the ACLU will defend a real terrorist for being singled out or profiled.

    I think common sense flies out the window as soon as two people are expected to do things one way.

    People alway say stuff like that...it's as if it's suppose to be funny or cool. Like when people say "Oxymoron - Military Intelligence" Hardy-har-har.

    (sigh).

    Common sense isn't common. I travel a lot and go through screening checkpoints at various airports quite often. I can tell you that even the same checkpoint doesn't follow the same guidelines and procedures from moment to moment ...it depends on the individual screener. As far as I can tell , the personnel are the same that were there before 9/11...some barely speak English. That whole thing is just ot make people feel good about flying and has little to do with security. After all, why blow up an airplane when you could blow up a whole airline terminal?

    Especially if they want to keep their jobs.
    I was opposed to federalizing the screeners...I was afraid this sort of thing would happen,
    not that it didn't happen before but those people could easily be fired...not true anymore.
    These screeners have become the airport gestapo.

    I hate to drive long distance but it's crap like this that will put me on the road rather than fly
    an airline if I have a need.
