    It seems that the TSA is trying out some behavioral profiling after all. I just do not get why complaining about stupidity is a sign that you might be doing something wrong. This seems like another excuse to take away our rights, and a way to formalize "contempt of cop" into suspicious behavior.

    Make congressmen and administration officials enjoy the same TSA procedures as do the people who elected them and it will all change.

    So far as I'm concerned "contempt of cop" should be an arrestable FELONY.

    It's a very simple matter....

    IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE SYSTEM, DON'T FLY!!!!!

    Thugs Standing Around are our servants, not our masters.

    If they don't want to treat the people who pay their fat asses with the respect due them, let them go out in The World and get a real job.

    Ok, so just because we pay their salaries with our taxes we should be able to complain sufficiently to be allowed to bypass security? That's a great idea. Then maybe I can whine enough to be allowed to slip a gun through the next time I fly.

    Personally, I'm all for strip searching every individual getting on a plane, and then placing all passengers in straitjackets and restraints for the duration of the flight to actually be able to ensure SECURITY onboard the aircraft.

    Why even allow people to leave the house?

    Can't take any chances with our security, can we? :rolleyes:
