I couldn't get around them on my trip to Ireland. To be honest, that may be the last time I fly. It wasn't traumatic, but it goes against my principles. There are so many places in the US I haven't explored and could probably spend a lifetime traveling to. At this point I don't see any reason not to take advantage of the places closer to home. The US is very vast...
I see.  All of North America is amazing, we have a lot of beautiful places here.

If it works to catch would be terrorists, high jackers, & other people bringing dangerous things onto the plane I'm going on then I will stand in line, I will take my shoes off, and I will get patted down by any tired grumpy tsa she-agent there is...because I don't want to go out that way.  And trust me, I've been in some lines from hell... O'Hare for one... that was so long I wanted to lie on the ground and have the people behind me just roll me when we moved.

I do think they should not have touched the 3 year old baby.  There are other ways they could have handled that situation.  I saw, at O'Hare (I saw a lot since the line was so long) a wheelchair that they transferred people into then they went through the scanner, the personal chairs got inspected then the person was transferred back into their own chair.  Tedious but simple enough.

Do I even need to mention LAX??  I think I'm STILL in line!!!

but it doesn't, many times reporters tested the tsa, by bringing banned items on the plane, in most cases they were not stopped. quite a few ppl brought laded guns thru tsa checkpoints.

forgive my ignorance, so does that mean you do not fly?  Or can you get around them somehow?
i drive around usa, when i go overseas i fly,
i have never had any problems with tsa, yet
there are things you can do to make your tsa check in painless and fast, when you give ppl what they ask for, they will be cooperative.you just need to exploit human nature, that is exactly how ordinary ppl, and reporters brought banned stuff on the plane.

See, I'm willing to accept that risk when I fly.

Personally, I think the best solution would be a combination: You can have high security flights, or you can chose the standard security flights. That way, those that don't want to want to get treated like a prison inmate to fly somewhere don't have to.

Also, the risk of people hijacking the low security flight and flying it into a building can be avoided by people simply doing their jobs: ie: if the plane is hijacked, a button is pressed that alerts NORAD, or if the plane deviates from its intended flight plan, NORAD is alerted.

Really?  Wow.  I feel very lucky that I've made it off the planes alive!

So, let's ban the TSA all together, and make any and all passenger searches immoral and illegal.

I would feel much safer on flights, wouldn't you?

Why can't there be a happy medium?  It seems so many times governments-from many countries-or government agencies take things to extremes.  We have experienced bizarre things here in Canada, too.
