    Rand Paul was hassled by the TSA, I think, because of bigotry. I think this is just one example of how the TSA thinks they can get away with just about anything.

    I went through security in Miami a couple of days ago and the guy was telling us we couldn't even have lint in our pockets. No items whatsoever could be in our pockets. Not even a plastic toothpick.

    Personally I think they're just trying to piss everyone off, turning airline travel into an ordeal rather than a pleasant flying experience. I'm not prone to complaining about being hassled because of my military experience, but civilians don't react well to being lined up like prison inmates and subjected to search.

    What is the point of this police-state shakedown at the airport?

    It's obvious they can't profile anyone.

    Senators as well as a 3 year olds get a pat-down while actual terrorists are entering our country through our Southern borders. This is not making us any safer.

    Look the 9/11/01 terrorists lived a few blocks from NSA headquarters for almost two years yet pulled off their task. And plenty of people knew of this before 9/11/01.

    It is possible for smart terrorists to outsmart the TSA equipment and the human operators.

    I have little faith that TSA searches are making us safer.

    These TSA search devices are expensive so some profiteers are doing well.

    I think it depends on who is in charge of a TSA crew.

    If they have an attitude, they act like they did in Miami.

    If they are trying to do their jobs well, they act like they did in Nashville. I forgot to remove my car keys from my pocket and they found them. They didn't treat me like I was a criminal.

    The TSA does almost nothing and yet is entirely too invasive. It needs to be abolished altogether and replaced with a reasonable security system. It is a sad joke that the passengers need to fend off more attacks then the TSA does.

    The TSA started going south once it was taken over and unionized by Obama.

    Nonsense. Obama had nothing to do with it.

    Any type of extreme invasion of privacy = rights going south.

    I cannot see any terrorists coming up from Mexico. They might get shot.
