No, its called, use common sense and quit acting like you're above everyone else.
Listen, TSA has a job to do. They dont need fat, self-righteous people yelling in their ear why they "dont have the right" to look through their baggage.
That video left out the part where she is now suing for millions of dollars for "emotional pain and suffering."
What's really suffering is my stomach because I'm going to be sick.

Ah, two sides to every story and the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

This incident aside, I do feel bad for the TSA folk in general. I read somewhere that they were the second most hated job personnel in the US, right behind IRS agents. The old phrase..."its a dirty job..." comes to mind.

Smoke and mirrors - that's all it is. Trust me - there are so many holes with airport screening - SO MANY. But the sheeple believe it makes them safe. It gives the 'appearance' of safety. Oh yeah - did I mention how many holes there are in airport screening? I know firsthand..

PS - TSA is nothing more than a great big federal employment agency.

LOL! Many things are all about perception. Remember that movie "Wag the Dog?" And I dare not even get my friends stirred up about the notion that we went to the moon!

But I do feel bad for the guys & gals. I know someone who is a TSA agent....not well..mainly thru community events. Anyway, the guy works hard, genuinely believes in keeping people safe, but catches a lot of grief at work.

I know it can get stressful at the airport and your travel experiences, but we all have to comply with thr regulations. Overall I think they can get stressful is not easy to deal with the public and the ones that are experience.

I don't see that it makes sense to protest the holes in security WHILE your trying to get through security.

I prefer my travels to go more smoothly then that.
