     If there was even the slightest hint of common sense in this country, nobody would ever purchase a ticket for a COMMERCIAL FLIGHT, AGAIN!

      Screw the airline industry. They've been screwing all of us for as long as I've been alive. Maybe if they went deep enough in the toilet, the government wpouldn't use your money to bail them out, and someone who appreciated the opportunity would take over and provide a real service. (I know it's fantasy. However, even if it didn't happen, the world would be a much better place, and it might get someone's attention!) Given recent events, the American taxpayers would likely take it in the shorts, one more time! Tell me, again, how much better your life is, since we saved the banks and "others" who have been raping and robbing us for decades.)

     TSA is so much easier to say than "gestapo"; besides, law enforcement might not like it.

One needs read only Wikipedia's brief history of the rise of the SS in Nazi Germany to see the parallels with America's developing para-military police and their uses.  And, I fear, like Nazi Germany our own SS won't be stopped short of drawing blood.

If the Government really wanted to curb terrorism, all they need to do is arm middle-class family people in America. This would shock the people into reality, and the middle-class has more common sense than TSA agents anyway.

So you see, we are moving into something that will become a whole lot worse than any Hitler/Nazi regime. And, like pre-WWII Germany, it is being done by the Government.
