    Just more Liberal Babble about more control on people instead of the criminals who use guns in crimes. Stupid educated people we pay to represent us!!!

    I think it may be really hard to fly anywhere without an airport. Until there is a viable alternative I am thinking we are at the mercy of some of the goofiness that is security.

    This is just another Democrat "never let a good tragedy go to waste" move. Not much to see here.

    Stop using airports!!!! Then what would I do with all of my frequent flyer miles and hotel points!

    In case no one has noticed, I'm kind of on an island in the middle of the Pacific, with only air service or cruise ships available for transit.

    If you really want to hit them hard you should also boycott all people and companies that use airports!

    I really didn't want to fly this Christmas season.. But our family has a orchard/farm in kalifornia (of all places) and they insisted and also paid for the one way flight down there to make it for the family reunion christmas eave.. However I only took the offer to make it for the said reunion. Needless to say Im driving back. Ill only deal with TSA if I absolutely have to.

    Those jackwagons can kiss my bubblegum. Hell Id rather take a train & double the time than fly. Luckily the Train folks are fairly relaxed still when it comes to firearms.. Etc.. Though liberals LOVE the train it seems like it hasn't caught on their radar.

    About the only reason I fly anymore is for business. Wish I could get away from it, not really possible or practical when the customer is in the far east....

    But then we wouldn't get these fine pizza boxes. I think it speaks volumes of their standards.

    It's been working fine since the Wright brothers there's always a risk anytime you do anything TSA is nothing but a PITA and is mainly that make you feel safe while inconveniencing you. So yes I think it would be a good thing

    What is really annoying about these TSA agents is that you seem to get along with them, they feel you up a bit, smile good bye and then never call.
    Every time it happens I just feel so used.

    i use the 400 mile rule,, if my travel is 400 miles or less, i rent a car and drive.
    when i do have to fly, i have turned the tsa check points into my entertainment.. if i get the pat down, i whisper things like" ohh yeaaa, thats the spot,, or "what are you doing after work". or as you are herded thru the check point start mooo'ing just loud enough so only a few people can hear you. or ask them if robot dancing is allowed in the scanner booth, last reply i got was" we are working on that request"..when you get to the airplane, kiss your hand then pat the side of the airplane with it as you walk thru the door, gets a few laughs. last flight the lady in exit row next to me was asking about how the emergency door was removed, i explained it to her and told her about the strap that you pulled out and attached to the wing for a guide/hand hold. then i infromed her that all that didn't matter because typically if the plane goes down, all that will be left is a smoking whole in the earth. then she got real quiet for the rest of the flight. and i was able to catch up on my sleep.
