  • If we aren't finding any doesn't that mean whatever we are doing is working?

    No, it doesn't. It means one ME looking person with a plastic explosive can easily slip through while they are fondling grandma.

  • not sure on the cost, but it just means that they aren't getting on the planes, so they are probably looking in other areas

  • Until it's found by rule of law to be unconstitutional, you have 2 choices: accept or find alternative forms of transportation. OP, I'm sure most Americans are happy that no more untoward air fatalities have occurred. At least with TSA jobs some additional AMERICANS are employed. I'm all for that, even if they are government employees. I'd rather foks have jobs than the alternative-

  • $8,164,780,000.

    That's the 2011 tsa budget anyway...but what government program actually stays within their budget?

  • Will it be worth it to you when they do find someone? They prolly won't since terriosts don't want to be fondled either do they aren't flying, therefore, it is working.

  • Yeah, because now they just saunter through the border at Canada ~

  • They don't fondle anyone .....but I bet there are a few who WANT them to fondle ...that's about all the action they will get. :-) Hehehe!
    Seriously though.....they don't fondle. That's crazy
    .... and the TSA protects us. As others have said, must be working !

  • "they don't fondle anyone"

    Okay, just a quote from the ACLU website, part of their flood of complaints back in November (graphic warning):

    "The TSA agent used her hands to feel under and between my breasts. She then rammed her hand up into my crotch Until it jammed into my pubic bone."
