Yeah, for sure. Say, do you know if Steve just retired or has an illness?

Everything I know would be from internet news so not sure if totally true but, I heard he quit years back due to ego issues.  I just saw them in December with the new guy but I saw them a looooooong time ago with Steve and he is definitely the man!

Hopefully Fair use laws will allow me to quote two paragraphs from a Washington Post article from 2010:

"JERUSALEM - Israel has long held the reputation as home to the world's most stringent airport security procedures. But most passengers aren't frisked, there are no intimately revealing body-imaging scanners, and security experts dismiss as misguided the new, more intrusive American approach that requires pat-downs or highly detailed scans of every passenger."


"Israel's approach allows most travelers to pass through airport security with relative ease. But Israeli personnel do single out small numbers of passengers for extensive searches and screening, based on profiling methods that have so far been rejected in the United States, subjecting Arabs and, in some cases, other foreign nationals to an extensive screening that comes with a steep civil liberties price."

Works for me, but far too politically incorrect for the USA. Oh well, best of luck, get well soon.

Who is it you see as "hating America?"  What causes you to think that said posters actually hate America?

Has it come to the point that complaining about the government violating constitutional principles is seen as hating America?

The government does NOT violate constitutional principles. Only a very few of those IN government do. As in any industry, for example.

As such, to bastardize the ENTIRE US government is silly and paranoid.

"Complaining" only goes so far. Offer at least some sense of solution, or else you actually become part of the problem.

That's what a corporate manager told me many years ago about bringing up grievances.

I remember during one of the big hijacking/bombing scares flying to Copenhagen through Hamburg.  Here I was a small slightly chubby Vietnamese in a business suit and the Germans put me through the third degree and then some.  Arriving in Copenhagen, no security anywhere that I could see, but I didn't want to do something that might cause me trouble, so I asked information where they check passports and all that.  She told me not to worry -- if they are interested in me they will let me know.

I've two theories; one was that Germans will be Germans and I was arriving from overseas; the other is that Danes will be Danes and I was arriving from a German airport, so they figure the job will already have been done.  The other theory is that the Germans check everybody, but the Danes are more selective.

whe I flew to the states, and handed in my passport, the staff started passing it around amongst one another, and I thought, 'oh oh, looks like i'm in for it here'
until I realised they were all just p**sing themselves laughing at my passport photo.....

The only terrorist attack looming over the US on a flight is that if they need another 9/11 to go to war with Iran.

Apart from that, pre 9/11, were you all really that concerned to get on a plane on this apparent high-level risk that a guy with a gun will hijack your plane and blow it up or fly it into something?

You may as well be more scared of vehicular bombs but those don't exactly happen either on American soil do they?

The first sentence of this post clearly demonstrates that you yourself are not very familiar with constitutional principles.  It suggests you have no idea at all what was done by the Orwellian-named USA Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, the recent amendment to the NDAA, and a variety of other actions by the federal government over the last 10 years or so.

Because you think something is unconstitutional doesn't make it unconstitutional. There are established procedures for testing constitutionality, and it is not derived from a particular ideological mind-set.
