Given the choice, would you board a commercial airplane flight that bypassed all current TSA security screenings?

If they gave everyone a gun on a plane there would be no need for the tsa because any terrorest would be swiss cheese before he could do anything

Someone already said it but it needs to be states again there's a difference in security and fear the TERRORrists win if you live a life by fear protect yourselves and protect others there are more good people than bad in this world

if the TSA is not doing it, the airline would privatize it and would become an industry.

TSA sucks. They need to privatize them.

Archie Bunker had the answer back in the 70's. (lots of hijackings back then) Arm the passengers. Hand out guns on take off and collect them when you land. Encourage people to bring their own guns.

I have an idea. Why don't we have two lines? Those of you who don't want to go thru security don't have to, but when you're sitting at the gate trying to figure out why so many crazy-looking people are sitting around you, you might wish you were sitting with us on the other side of the airport.

your ignoring the incredibly tiny chance there is of actually having a terrorist hijack a plane. How many actual terrorist plots have the increased invasion of privacy prevented?????


04/24/12 9:23 am

Lol. The terrorist win!

There would be fucking terrorists EVERYWHERE

35,000 feet in the air requires only a few minutes at a gate, no big deal and not a violation of personal space or freedom. Those of you against security and safety are the first to scream foul when crap goes down. Groped, stolen from, humiliated by TSA? Confused with your block party event?C'mon!

since i can bring whatever i want for protection from crazies, probably... but it would depend on the size of the flight and if i could view the passengers first

When are the idiot-girly men going to realize the x-rays hurt you less than the smog in the city? If you're going to whine- take another mode of transportation. Jerk had told me not touch his junk- I'd have called him a little girl & told him to take the bus! Worst thing is these morons vote!

I don't mind metal detectors run by the airlines but that's it. None of this TSA garbage.

I can't believe all of you sheeple wanting all of the new TSA crap. I would have thought that with an attempt similar to 911 we would rip the terrorists from limb to limb knowing they're intentions.


04/21/12 12:56 pm

If someone is going to blow something up why would they choose a plane? I don't think it is very risky. People are paranoid.

The logic of skipping security & bringing guns is kinda ridiculous. How is a gun going to save you from a bomb??

That's like taking a knife to a gunfight!

As long as I could bring my good friends, Smith and Wesson!


04/21/12 9:32 am

You liberals conveniently forget 911

I just got an uncomfortable feeling." Michael Tuohey former ticket agent at Portland International Jetport, said he wanted to report the feeling bet didn't want to be viewed as a racist.

According to recently declassified documents, Atta apparently had been led to believe he could receive a boarding pass for his connecting flight in Boston at check-in in Portland.; "I looked in (Atta's) eyes, and he just looked angry.

They have also given security for teen prom, showing they aren't looking just for terrorists. So where's the cutoff point? Malls and city sidewalks?.

Nazi Germany had highway checkpoints to "protect the people". The TSA has the same stuff in border states and Tennessee.

TSA is unconstitutional. I would rather risk my safety than lose my liberty. Benjamin Franklin had a quote "those who sacrifice liberty for a little safety deserve neither safety nor liberty". TSA has branched out to NFL games. That has nothing to do with transportation. Where's the cutoff point?

I think we should have a flight were everyone who gets on (save criminals and children) is given a small caliber handgun. Let's see anybody do anything crazy on that flight. Think about it.

Zod, I travel a lot and have nothing but respect for these people who are just doing their jobs & following policies. Sure there are some bad apples - but if any other agency or business with 50K+ employees was put under a microscope they'd have bad press too. Thank you for keeping us safe tsa!

tcby I got the repeat scan, then the pat down myself last October on a domestic return flight. Over the pants, not in them, but everything got touched. I should be happy to know my package appears so threatening, but mostly it was just annoying.

Paulson, so when exactly was the last time someone from tsa put their hands down your pants, stole from you and/or groped your family? When is the last time you witnessed them harassing a 90 year old? Seriously. Why regurgitate the invalid dramatic ramblings of others and the media?

Paulson
04/20/12 8:21 pm

Id prefer to fly without strangers sticking their dirty hands down my pants, stealing, groping my family and harassing 90 year old people. The TSA screening process is a joke and a violation of the 4th Amendment. Wake up America !!!!!

I have respect for the TSA screamers for taking a job not many others want, but I have a bubble. There are places where I don't enjoy having a stranger touch me in public. I almost feel embarrassed for THEM.

In a heartbeat! I hate those goofy TSA screeners!! They wouldn't know a bomb if I wrote BOMB on it. They would just be searching the old lady in a wheelchair and taking her lipgloss ..

tcby no they sure wouldn't. They let me fly the little ones in nice weather, but I wouldn't probably even be able to figure out how to adjust the seat on a 737, never mind have a clue how to get it started.
