VIPR Teams to Enhance Security at Major Local Transporation Facilities (the good spin)

Surprise! TSA Is Searching Your Car, Subway, Ferry, Bus, AND Plane (the bad spin)


Is it a common misconception that a large percentage of Americans do not support TSA? Is there a silent majority out there who support and appreciate the security TSA provides?

Please vote the Poll below and add a comment with a general idea of who you are (frequent traveller, international traveller, non-frequent traveller etc.) and why you voted as you did.
I am a non-frequent traveller since I now live close to my family here in TExas. The added stresses of air flying have limited my pleasure flying however. I no longer look forward to flying as I did in the past. In fact, I dread it. If so many are against it (according to the poll), why do we still have it?

Of course, if you're wondering HOW Uncle Sam got the presumed authority to institute TSA, look to the strange designation of many airports as INTERNATIONAL - even teeny puddle jump 'ports that have no direct international flights.
