... it's perfectly acceptable for the TSA goons to harass nuns ... and strip search 82 year old women in wheel chairs ... so long as they don't profile Muzzies!

Thank goodness for the TSA, old nun and old women in wheelchairs are the newest, most dangerous terrorist groups.

I saw this happen in Phoenix back last Feb.
I walked right thru the normal scanner.
They made some 80+ woman in a wheelchair stand up in the body scanner.
She could barely stand up.

since March of this year, i have flown a good 9-10 times across the country... i have yet to have a bad experience because of employees either at the airport, or with the airlines... i take that back, one female bartender was very rude to me when i made a comment about the tiny shot sizes of tequila in my double shot... this was in Albuquerque... i have had shots in airports in San Jose (very generous), San Francisco (most generous), Chicago Midway, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Raleigh-Durham and Denver... and i think Atlanta... that double shot in Albuquerque did not even fill one swallow... and it was the most expensive, too! okay, mis dos centavos...

“Other postings explained that agents inspect wheelchairs because they’ve founded loaded firearms in them.”

“founded”. . .anyway. . .

I call BS.

If that was true then the TSA media goons would have this front and center in all their media releases.

Same with me. ..arthritis in a shoulder and I have to explain to the mouth-breathers at TSA that is is physically impossible for me to raise my arm anymore.

They always insist and try to intimidate.

Doesn’t work.

TSA - a Bush administration jobs program for the chronically unemployed.....and the current whack-job in the WH hasn’t done a thing to improve the situation.

As long as we keep putting up with their 4th Amendment violations this will never get better and only get worse.

I went from 120 flights per year average prior to the implementation of the TSA to a grand total of 1 trip since these constitutional violators infested our airports.

Sanity would dictate we focus on the criminals who are cult members in Islam and leave the rest of us alone.

I guarantee you fewer people would have died on 9/11 had the passengers been armed.

it only says "founded" because it was originally typed as "finded" and the auto-correct did the best it could...

It only takes one really bad time to change your mind. I haven’t flown since Jun-2002. Used up all my free flight miles and now I drive or don’t go. Used to fly 5 times a year. That will be 55 flights I haven’t taken by the end of the year.

not just ANY population, either. A population of minorities with a chip on each of their shoulders.

The last time I went through TSA at LAX, it dawned on me that the motley group of screeners were, as a team, extracting government-sanctioned revenge on this innocent white heterosexual boy for slavery, the Mexican-American War, the Boxer rebellion, and the Matthew Shepard & Harvey Milk murders... all at the same time.

I hate flying any more.

i used to drive everywhere too... did not like to fly... however, i do not have the free time to go from East Coast to West Coast... so i am very grateful that my experiences have been good thus far... i have lost one belt that i forgot to pick up from the conveyor belt... i had forgotten to remove it before starting for the x-ray... so it went into a separate bin... i also forgot my wallet at the curbside check-in counter a couple of weeks ago... i was running late... the guy at the counter called the gate for me to tell them i was on my way... in my hurry, i left the wallet... as i was going through security, he ran up to me and handed it to me!!!!! whew!

I go fishing to Mexico twice a year with a friend that wears a long leg knee brace after contracting polio from the polio vaccine in the early 60’s. We travel through SkyHarbor most of the time and even though he wears shorts and his solid brace is almost fully exposed AND he has a pitifully atrophied calf and thigh muscle on the leg, they ALWAYS make him take the brace off. He used to get really PO’d but now he just stays in line, does not let them hurry him and jams up the line as much as he can with a big smile on his face.

One of the yet growing list of reasons I don’t fly anymore.

I, too, decided 13 years ago that the airlines had received their last cent from me. I still wonder, though, why Americans accept this treatment just so they have the privilege of sitting in cramped quarters for which they pay high prices. There are other ways of getting from point A to point B.

I guess some folks don't dare much for their dignity.

I haven’t flown since May and intend to never fly again. If I can’t get there by car, I’m not going. They’d have a field day with me b/c I’m elderly and have to wear a medical device.

I had no problem flying until they moved the Gestapo into the airport. Now I do not go anywhere I cannot drive. I cancelled a trip to Vegas I has planned for 2003 as neither my wife or I, want to go through the hassle at the airports.

Now it is 11 years later, and it is far worse than when I quit flying. I don’t see how anyone can force themselves to go through the $hit that is the flying experience today.
