Still think pat downs will keep us safe?

Just as I said, check the baggage and the cargo. If this article doesn't open your eyes, I don't know what will. Looks like those charged with our safety are playing right into their hands. Great, just great. I feel so much safer now.......

  • Pat downs are reactive. We need to become proactive. I feel like our security measures are about as effective as a dog chasing its tail; except, there have been no more attacks with planes. That just keeps me thinking that something is working even if not to an exceptional degree.

  • The question here is this:

    Do the people who are politically correct to the point of coma give a crap about any of this?

    Are we sure that Al Quaida will bleed us dry, or will it be a combination of the ACLU, CAIR, and the liberal moronic politically correct moms here on CM?

    As a country, we can gear up and fight anything, if we're allowed to.

    If George Soros will let us.........................

    The ACLU is one of the groups trying to shut this joke of a system down, genius

  • Don't believe everything you think Grace.

    Plenty of libs and the ACLU have spoken out against the pat downs.

  • LOL. Yah, Grace,you have been missing out on some really important news. Such as the ACLU and many of the dreaded Libs who are against the pat-downs. But don't let the truth stop you from all your griping and cursing here. @@

  • Why don't they use their stupid back scatter xrays on packages, then?

    Stupid government. Putting on their security theatre.

    3 things for ya:


    1)  You are generally on the wrong, weird,  side of any given issue.


    2)  You're not nearly as smart as you think you are. Sorry about that, disappointing, I imagine.


    2) You can sure enough  kiss my ass.




    Now, bless your heart and  have a nice day!

  • I'm sure that YOU calling someone stupid is surely enough taken as a compliment, grace.

  • People who are willing to board a plane when every possible precaution HAS NOT been taken are stupid.

    I would think that that is obvious.

    Yeah, it is the obvious thing to do.

    YOU may need to have your "liberties" intact, so it's a good thing that it's possible to have your liberties and be dead at the same time.

    ....dead at the same time.

    Which is exactly why the people who support the scans and pat downs are stupid (your word, not mine)
