I just don't get this at all. I've got a titanium rod in my leg from where I snapped my shin in two. Yeah, if I go to an airport I expect to have to
go through a big 'make me naked' x-ray machine or, if I didn't want to do that, then I'd get a Pat-Down. BIG FREAKIN' DEAL!!! I'm TOTALLY happy
to do either one, ya know why? Because I might not have a Titanium rod...I might have a bomb! Or a gun. Or, a freakin' Samuri Sword (although I'd
hate to think where I would have to hide it!) My point is....people need to STOP BEING HUGE BABIES. Yeah...if Jesse Ventura sets off the metal
detector I don't want someone saying "oh, he's ok...its just Jesse Ventura...he's a Celebrity, he won't hurt us". Thats total BS. Jesse mentions
he's served our country. Big Deal. So have a hell of a lot of other people, who have then gone on to go completely nuts! I'm not saying a man
doesn't deserve respect because of what they have done for the country, but I am saying that they should not get passed over for security checks
because someone makes an assumption. Wasn't it a "Sharp dressed" and obviously important individual who aided Northwest flight "Christmas
Bomber" Umar Mutallab onto a plane, bypassing the regular rig-a-ma-roll? And yet Jesse Ventura thinks he deserves special treatment?!?! Shame on him!
And shame on anyone who can't understand that there IS some circumstances where added security is a GOOD thing. Of all of the horrible things going
on in America, THIS is the thing that Jesse thinks is serious enough for a lawsuit?!?! I just lost major respect for the man.
