I worked with a guy with flaming red hair and a heavy Scottish accent. He said it never failed -- whenever he flew, TSA would make a big deal out of searching him and treating him as a clear terrorist suspect. His theory was that TSA just felt compelled to focus on him because he was so very non-Arab that he made a perfect example for "We don't profile Arabs".

And, of course, TSA really should just profile for young Arab males. But they won't. Scottish guys and 3-yr old girls in wheelchairs make much more sensible targets.

It's not about safety. It's about control. We are all being conditioned.

Bingo! Bingo! And...Bingo, again!

I have felt the same way for a very long time. Last year, I was livid watching a nearly 80 year old grandmother type being padded down across her arms, breasts, stomach, down her legs, etc. - out in the open for all to see. Made my blood boil! We all scurry through the security check points, made to feel like we're criminals, guilty until proven innocent, once our bags are checked and our bodies scanned.

Conditioning? You said it!

Yeah, there's very little chance that they'll suddenly explode.

Better to let the obvious middle eastern types go through, so if they do detonate it won't be in your area.

Yes and the TSA is government . and this TSA just shows the stupidity of government/socialism. government/socialism never works and this is just one more example. We must abolish the EPA, TSA, fcc, IRS, etc. beginning to see the problem? when have they ever abolished 1 government agency, 1 gov tax, 1 gov program ? Never. it's the opposite as every day a they write more laws which lead to more gov agencies, more gov programs , more gov regulations, more gov taxes. we must not talk about spending reductions on these agencies but we must talk about and then completely eliminate whole agencies etc. NO ONE is talking like this. the only thing I've ever heard of is some Republicans or some conservatives sometimes talking about repealing Obamacare or the dept of education.
