Well the security measures won't be disappearing overnight, so it really is a decision between dealing with it or not flying.I'm done being nice about that point. Come up with something relevant or GTFO you damned troll.
More bureaucracy is never a better alternative.Your point was to vote for politicians that are either opposed to or in favor of TSA's existence. You missed the point about daily accountability for TSA operations, of which there is none.
If there is one testament to the system working so far is that there have been no attempted hijackings or bombings of planes departing from within the US since 9/11.The majority of air travelers haven't been through the "enhanced screening" and most are only seasonal and probably are only getting their first look at the procedures that were only implemented a month ago. I'm not telling people what to think, they are seeing security, I see the infringing on my civil rights - the security argument is flawed because a dedicated jihadist won't be deterred by these security protocols so we end up having to pick either our right to be secure in our persons or our right to travel freely within our own nation.
Call me nuts, but I don't think that we should have to decide between two inalienable rights.
That doesn't mean its perfect, though.
the word i'm thinking of starts with an F, and ends with a G, can you fill in the blanks for me?Gee, what a great attitude. Are you going to say "tough luck" when the TSA invades train stations, subway stations, bus stops,
Unless there is a major shift in the technological level of the scanners, there is simply too many people using Trains, Subway and Buses to scan them all, it works for Air Travel because it is a relatively niche transport method with a relatively low footfall.
Most travellers care about getting to where they need to be and nothing else, travel is not fun even without security protocols so most people won't go actively looking for more things to make their travelling a worse experience.The majority of travelers are apathetic morons.
It would essentially take a revolution in the minds of travellers or a severe change in the mindset of politicians to make the status quo change, people whining on the internet this is not.Where did I read ... just because the majority agrees on something, that doesn't make it right. A century ago, the majority of people agreed that slavery was A-OK.
