I'd love a more detailed account of why I'm wrong. Yes you can sue a private company, so what? You strike me as someone who really isn't familiar
with your own sides views since I'm anti-TSA and generally anti-government.
Consider this, however, flying is by no means a right in the sense we are speaking of. It could be considered a right if one should get a pilots
license and buy a plane, but in this sense you are entering private property and are subject to their rules. Freedom entails an almost unlimited
right of contract, which means that should companies choose to force waver acceptance as a condition to purchase a ticket all the fancy talk of civil
liberties go right out the _
How many times has the TSA been sued?
Don't know and really don't care.
Have you seen their actions change? No becuase they are untoucable.
Not really, but that fact that you think a private company would not engage in this sort of thing is rediculous and the faux or manufactured outrage
at this non-violation of liberty is ridiculous and generally promoted by those who either don't know any better or don't think much.
I wish that a private company would come along and take over the process. Then those being unfairly molested, dosed with high levels of
radiation, etc would have a fighting chance at a remedy
Be careful what you wish for. Some (many to most in America) take the short view and it leads them to erroneous conclusions and malformed ideas.
To be clear on my feelings on the subject of the TSA. I oppose them with every fiber of my being, and in fact one can say that I loath them as much
as I do Customs, the IRS, the FDA, and the Border Patrol. None of them should exist and are either redundant or doing such a poor job as to be a
total waste of money.
However, that said, feeling like a) this girl was hideously molested and b) that a private company teamed with legions of lawyers would fail to do the
very same thing is simply hiding one's head in the sand and ignoring reality.
