I fail to see the need of a bloated government bureaucracy masquerading as "security".
Why do people that fly private planes (the very same people that implement these laws / agencies) why don't they have to go through the same security as you and I. I have been to private airports and I can assure you there is absolutely 0 security before you get on a plane. If I am not mistaken terrorist groups are backed by vast amount of money and power. They could walk into a private airport and take a plane (or rent one) and do whatever they want.
The TSA is always one step behind. Their rules are always implemented after the fact. They are there for "show". They are not protecting anyone.
FYI last time I flied they took away a pocket knife I forgot I had in my bag. They took it away and let me fly. If I was trying to hijack the plane with that knife don't you think they would at least question me? They took it away and let me fly... not before touching my d**k. "All in the name of illusory safety"
Hail homeland security. Nice sliding that in
