I’m likely alone on the right on this TSA issue

…but guys remember one we have a public limit in terms of what we can’t do that is where our enemies are going to concentrate.

Sitcom culture and Airplane Airplane 2 (Warning link NSFW) not withstanding may have sex on the mind 24/7 but let me tell you the TSA guys at the airport are more jaded than every doctor. They don’t care what you’ve got with those body scanners, they are thinking “is this the guy with the bomb?”

Remember when the guy already wired to blow goes into that line (and that day will come) it will that person who is doing that mundane repetitive job who will be getting it. Don’t think for one moment they don’t know it.

Yes I’m sure that we can do it better but eyes on the prize. The goal is no exploding planes. If we are meeting this goal I’m good.

But the reason why we are having this debate and searching Nuns and old ladies is because we are too politically correct to admit that it is Radical Islam that produces the need for all of this nonsense.

Until we are willing to face that fact straight up we will be squabbling about breasts and groping.

I will have a longer essay on this later.

    My questions: what do the scanners add that bomb-sniffing dogs and profiling do not?

    Is there a better way to do this, such as by implementing incredibly harsh penalties for TSA agents who grope inappropriately or store naked images on their laptops?

    Why are we so focused on America when the underwear bomber and the shoe bomber (IIRC) came in on overseas flights?

    Why do we subject everyone – grannies, 3-year-olds, pilots, and people with high-level security clearance to these things?

    In an era in which passengers will fight and pilots are behind a strong door, haven’t we eliminated the biggest threats?

    Yes, exploding airplanes are horrible and the loss of 200 lives would be terrible, but don’t you all understand that you can just as easily bring a gigantic suitcase bomb onto the Acela Express and kill just as many people when you detonate it on a train travelling at 100 mph?

    @ Roxanne I agree with you
