    I forget which founding father it was but one of the said and I am paraphrasing... those who prefer security over freedom risk losing both....

    The TSA is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of anti-terror and Homeland Security.

    She was not jailed for protecting her child.

    She was jailed because she was disordely.

    She should have simply refused to have her daughter patted down. If they told her she would be unable to catch her flight without the pat down, then so be it.

    Screaming like a moron is not a good way to get what you want, even if what you want is perfectly reasonable.

    "He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither" is commonly attributed to Franklin, but some sources claim that this quote came from Richard Jackson.

    Cons show their true fascist colors.

    Give the woman a medal for raising a ruckus to protect her daughter and throw TSA chief John Pistole in jail.

    I don't understand. Why couldn't the girl go through a security dinger thinger (the xray gizmo)?

    Why didn't she request a female TSA officer?

    Why did she YELL?

    Give it a day. She'll be suing.

    I'd like to know if the daughter was 9 or 20. Couldn't she just say she rather have the scanner? Sounds like mom needs some chill pills.
