I've given up flying until the draconian restrictions are eased. Especially the porno machines. Get rid of them.

I don't think the government should say what citizens can or can't bring on a privately owned plane.

I don't know about that. I can think of a lot of things I wouldn't want coming in on a private plane...

Me too. But it should be left up to the owner of the plane, not the government.

But what if the plane owner is selling kidnapped kids as sex slaves or something like that? I'd sure like someone to catch that!

That's already illegal. Owning 10 ounces of liquid is not.

What? I can make up whatever scenario I want! My brain tends to go to worst case scenarios, then decide if it's worth the risk. The way I interpreted her comment, I thought the risk was too high.

Annoyance, delays and a good groping if you want it, but not value.

Agreed. "It prevents terrorism!" or the classic "It's for your own safety!".

TSA is a royal pain in the ..., but unfortunately a necessary one. I've had people tell me we don't need them because we haven't had an attack since 9/11. Duh...... I don't want to fly on a plane that has no security.

Causation fallacy. If I patrol my city to deter elephants and no elephants show up can I credit my efforts?

Besides, airlines and airports have an incentive to provide safety. Let them handle it.

We haven't had an attack since 9/11 thanks to the TSA.

Yeah, but not a whole lot. Mostly just protection against most high explosives, which is something the average passenger can neither identify, nor fight.

They protect you from toothpaste. You can bring as many 3.0 oz tubes you want but don't you dare bring a half used 6.0 oz tube

That being the "most" high explosives, not all.

All the stupid rules are–obviously–stupid, but the bomb sniffers and the carry on x-rays are helpful.

Flying is a privilege. You can choose not to, if you don't want to be searched. For the record, I'd rather the airlines were responsible for their own security, but no, I don't mind bomb scans before flights.

Travel is a right, the method of which is not subject to debate. You can't just say "this activity is a privilege and therefore you have zero rights". Don't you see how dangerous of an attitude that is?

Don't own a home if you don't want it searched! Don't bear arms unless you want to be harassed! Don't you know, these people put their lives on the line for your privileges!

You don't wanna get searched, you can fly your own plane wherever it is you're going. An airline has a right to demand all its passengers be searched, and you have a right to refuse that search by refusing their services.

So it's the airline that's making these demands? Here I thought it was government agencies. Odd.

I didn't say it was the airlines. I said it should be up to the airlines, and they should scan for bombs.

"An airline has a right to demand all its passengers be searched"

They do.

When's the last time you saw an airline arguing against having the TSA search its passengers. This is all done with the consent of the airlines. That it wasn't their idea has no legal ramifications whatsoever.

Doopy Remedial Americanism

This is an example of private airlines consenting to allow searches of all of their passengers, when flying from publicly-funded airports. The TSA has no jurisdiction when you fly your Super Cub off the grass strip in the south 40 pasture.

The airlines support it simply because that means they don't have to pay for it themselves

Doopy Remedial Americanism
07/18/13 6:34 am

Yes. The airlines want secure flights, because airliners exploding in the sky is bad for business. If they can get their flights secured for free, that's all good by them.

They aren't complaining about it. They aren't trying to stop it. They like it. It is directly in their interest.
