Careful now. I understand your anger. But I would not put it past this regime to have someone knocking on your door in the middle of the night. Or kicking it in, rather. If we're going to rid our country of those in power now, cooler .s must prevail. (of course, I'd like to shoot 'em too)

Edit to verify the shooting reference is a joke - please don't take my family during the night.

Exactly! With their private jets they don't have to put up with the scans and pat downs. I'm sure they would be crying if they had to go through it. We have to stand up for our rights and not let these criminals dictate to us anymore!

You people still don't understand and see how it is the parents of this boy who willingly let THEIR child be molested by the TSA workers... If the parents did not care about the child being groped then what business does the person filming this have of taking videos of a little boy to use for his own special good. If these parents cared they know for a fact that either one of two things would happen to their son.

A. BODY SCANNER

B. ENHANCED PAT DOWN.

Now the parents CHOSE to let their boy get molested if they did not want him touched they could of put him through the scanners if they did not want him through the scanners then they should of made other means to travel until this issue gets sorted out.. GET REAL would you go to the airport with your child and let them get groped and scanned or would you be a REAL parent and NOT SUBJECT YOUR CHILD TO MOLESTATION/GROPING.. I am angree with the sick sick perverted parents who let this HAPPEN to their child..

So I ask again. If it's no big deal, can we please have a video of President Obama's daughters going through the procedure? I wear a pacemaker, so I will not go through their scanner. They're also not going to touch me. Thus, my problem. I could probably suck-it-up and go through the pat down if my leaders provide their family members as an example. Sometimes you just have to say enough is enough. I do, however, respect your opinion. [/quote

AS for the presidents kids,.Of course that wont be happening,.
and if it did it wont be a shirtless event.
Like I said,. I don't agree with what TSA has been given liberty to.
But as to this thread and it's runaway posting of what doesnt really happen,.
That is MY issue..

Yea they should of done what I did, when I told them, well then I don't even want to fly on your plane then thank you! and calmly walked away with a dozen security cops running past me, towards the metal detector x-ray thing

Then when they caught me, I said what's wrong, they said bomb threat, neeedless to say I had no bomb, but they would not release me till I showed them I had nothing to hide.

I try to be polite and respectable in my replies - even if I strongly disagree with the poster. This has GOT to be one of the silliest posts I have ever seen. Is this a joke and I just don't get it? You are certainly entitled to your opinion, but I cannot see, by the wildest stretch of the imagination, the parents are to blame for this. We now live in a police state. Parents do not defy agents of the empire. They are lucky their child was only molested by the TSA. It could have been much worse. Learn to know the definition of fascism - and how to spot it. A democracy does not do this to its citizens. A point made a few pages back - the TSA has NEVER discovered prohibited material in one of these searches. Never. Yet they go on. Because we let it go on. "Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

Since most terrorists with undwear bombs, shoe bombs, etc.. come in to this country from overseas, why are we so paranoid about domestic flights? The terrorist organizations have to be watching these reports and gloating. They are winning the war without having blown up a single bomb here in the U.S.!

What measures will our government take when a shoulder-mounted rocket launcher brings down a plane just before landing, or just after take-off from one of our nation's airports? That type of attack is a big concern within the Homeland Security department.

you just dont get it do you..

TPTB want us to react just like you..arguing with each other, over who is to blame..

can you answer one question-what are you going to do when these policies are instituted into our everyday life?? workplace, schools, malls, librarys, etc. who will you blame then??
it's the parents fault, they never should of sent the kid to school!!

Eyes are extentions of the brain. Seeing without understanding is fairly common among sheep and other barn yard animals. I recommend getting some corrective lenses for your brain.

We can jump that hurdle when we get there ok? BUT THIS oh yes it is the parents fault.. Now let me ask you this, WOULD YOU ALLOW your child to be groped and naked body scan? If so then shame on you. if not then you should be upset with the parents who allowed this to happen.. How silly could it be that these parents just DONT care about THEIR CHILD... Now if this was my kid i would of found another way home and if you wouldn't then shame on you!

I completely forgot about the actual numbers of deaths caused by terrorist in the United States compared to virtually all other forms of death in the United States, which in my opinion nullifies all of the arguments for this new wave of anti-terror security measures and the bandwagon that follows it. Yes we need security, but to continue to waste tax money by increasing funding on a [in my opinion] non-issue is kind of absurd. Hmmmm... we can justify cutting spending in education but then we just have to add more expensive scanners and extra procedures that waste time. Before you slam me completely, yes the increased security MAY but not definitely, at some point save a few extra lifes, it also my make no difference. A simple matter of fact is in the U.S. deaths due to the common cold/flu, car accidents, industrial accidents, and a huge list of other very preventable deaths account individually each YEAR for a staggering amount more then the total number of deaths (in the United States) resulting from terrorism. I don't have much time to go over all the facts and site all of the individual sources but I will make a note to do so later but please also feel free (no matter your side on the argument) to look them up yourselves. I have spent the last 3 hours (which is a extremely short time) to pull this data and compile it for this post. It may not be perfect but I will put more time in later.


DATA SET #1 )) TOTAL # of DEATHS of U.S. Citizens WORLDWIDE from 1998-2003 + 2005-2007 (missing '04 data)= 2,895 deaths over a 9 year span. (SEE BELOW FOR SOURCES)



DATA SET #2 )) Total International Casualties in NORTH AMERICA from 1992-2002 (over the course of 11 years!)
=5,479 Casualties in North America from the result of terrorism
[[NOTE!!! NON-FATAL INJURIES ARE ALSO CASUALTIES, IT IS NOT EXCUSIVE TO DEATH -abberant)

And in DATA SET #2 )) If you subtract the number of casualties in North America from 1993 (1,006 [World Trade Center Bombing]) and 2001 (4,465 [9-11 Attacks, biggest terrorist attack on U.S. soil in history]) it leaves you with only a total of 8 Casualties from the result of terrorism in North America (Canada & the U.S.) for the years 1992, 1994-2000, 2002 (9 years total) that is a less then 1 a year average for North America. Which is good news for all of you that do not leave the country with the exception of visiting our neighbor to the north, Canada.

Which is not shocking to me that you (or myself) as an American are far more likely to encounter terrorism (against U.S./us) in foreign countries. In 1993 only 6 people died as a result of the bombing and in 2001 our government had knowledge that there was an increased threat of a terrorist attack but many branches did not unite to take proper action. It is unfortunate that the 9-11 terror event had to take place in order to wake the U.S. people and government up but since then ZERO casualties due to terrorist actions have happened in the U.S.

But to insist that the government act as if all people are potential terrorists and assume you are guilty, or at least assume the worst, abusing power and chipping away slowly at rights, NO MATTER how little you think, in the name of protecting U.S. Citizens and freedom. Even if you believe they are not wrong in there actions and/or attitude the fact that 10,050 U.S. Citizens died from the result of workplace injury in 2007 alone (that's right almost 3.5x the amount of U.S. Citizens have died in 2007 from workplace injury then have died WORLDWIDE in 9 years from Terrorism) My point is terrorism exist and we as the people have to be aware that it does and we that we possibly could be killed as a result of terrorism. (but any thing is likely). I have placed sources and links below, all data has been pulled from our [the U.S.] GOVERNMENTS websites so it is not from bias news sites, it is raw data and all numbers have been referenced.

Why are we spending so much of our money and driving our nation deeper into debt for a problem that doesn't exist in the way, for some reason we want to perceive it as. For example we continue to cut education benefits and classrooms are filling up with more and more students. We are falling behind in regards to global education standards, but if we put a good chunk of the "National Security" budget back into the school system and helped more with financial aid, spent time actually teaching the next generation to be wise with their investments; I could only imagine that in the not to distant future we can start pulling our country out of debt and stop seeing things like 2007's #5 Top Way Americans Died - Accidents (unintentional injuries)= 123,706 deaths. Accidents will always be there but we can shrink that number. Hopefully if we wise up and invest in our future generations (and realize it is also an investment into our own futures) they might be the ones who find the cures to our illness' and pave the way for peaceful solutions to our problems.


I will maybe during Thanksgiving break look into graphing the increase in security/military spending over the last 20 years. Then over lay the changes in public education spending and national education averages to see if they clearly correlate. All this bull we as a country put up with is not necessary considering we are no safer (from terrorism) then we were in the past with the exception of a few bad calls. (I work in the animation industry, so right now my free time is limited)



---------------------------------
Below is the data on U.S. citizen deaths due to terrorism for the entire 2007 year (which in this debate over TSA security we are talking about private citizens not Military)

Information below is copied and pasted from:
U.S. Dept of State - Country Reports on Terrorism 2007
-National Counterterrorism Center: Annex of Statistical Information
www.state.gov...

""Terrorism Deaths, Injuries, Kidnappings of Private U.S. Citizens, 2007
Provided by the Bureau of Consular Affairs, U.S. Department of State

The term "Private U.S. Citizen" refers to any U.S. citizen not acting in an official capacity on behalf of the U.S. Government; therefore these figures do not include, for example, U.S. military personnel killed or injured in a terrorism-related incident while on active duty or employees of the Department of State and other federal agencies. Members of U.S. Government employees’ households are considered private U.S. citizens.

Although every effort was made to include all terrorism-related deaths and injuries involving private U.S. citizens, the figures below reflect only those cases reported to, or known by, the U.S. Department of State, and may not reflect actual numbers of injured, which may not always be reported depending on their severity. As NCTC also notes, in the cases of Iraq and Afghanistan, it is particularly difficult to gather comprehensive information about all incidents and to distinguish terrorism from the numerous other forms of violence.

U.S. citizens worldwide killed as a result of incidents of terrorism: 19
U.S. citizens worldwide injured as a result of incidents of terrorism: 0
U.S. citizens worldwide kidnapped as a result of incidents of terrorism: 17

•In all cases limited to incidents targeting noncombatants. ""
-----------------------------------

[[So in 2007 only 19 people, U.S. Citizens were killed as a result of terrorism. Although for the families of those 19 victims I am sure it is not something they take lightly and by no means do I mean any disrespect but ....

Yes this is not really that bad, some of those people coming in from out of the country, get those cavity searches.
You could just say no , no, I just saw my dentist last week he said I have no cavities.

Now this would be a violation to your person, can those machines see if you have something stuck up your butt, I'm sure I could not handle any anal probing.

Then could you see the prevert saying nope I'm not going thru your machine, your going to have to grop my testicles and your might as well just go a. and do the anal probe while your at it.

I can understand your position that the parents should not have allowed this to happen. But if the parents were to interfere, they would have been face-down on the floor with weapons pointed at them. The parents should never have been placed in this position to begin with. So, what caused the parents not to step in? Fear. We should not have to live in fear of our government. But we do. This complete body search thing at the airports is just another instance of the current methods of law enforcement. Home invasions, telling us what we can and can't consume, unreasonable searches, they're all just telling of what we have become. Or rather, what our government has become.

You are more likely to accidentaly poison yourself than be a victim of terrorism.
