According to recent news, airline passengers have become quite unruly towards staff. Also, especially considering that liquids and gels of any kind including but not limited to deodorants, colognes, perfumes, toothpaste, shoe/bra implants, etc, are forbidden in both checked and carryon baggage (in fact, you practically can not bring anything through the airport anymore) I am starting to get a feeling that one day very soon, the FBI and Congress will step in and order an all out ban on all air travel and order all US citizens to stay permanently in their assigned city/state of residence. Sometimes, this even makes me feel as though the government of the USA would be reformed into a dictatorship under George W Bush and that all airports, hotels, and motels would be demolished and turned into residential/buisness areas and that anyone caught wandering more than a few miles outside their assigned city of residence would be immediately arrested and charged with statutory trespassing.

Ridiculous.

I fly all the time and I rarely have to wait very long through security...it is the price we pay as the government at least attempts to make us safer.

I have a different theory about unruly passengers - when you give passengers no leg room or room to recline and you either don't feed them or give them crappy, gross tasting "snacks" instead of real meals, people get cranky - especially when they are traveling for hours and hours on a plane. Those nasty tiny little screens that the movies are shown on are pathetic - the sound system terrible and on top of that you have to pay for the ill-filling headphones....people are grouchy because their physical comfort and well being is being assaulted on every front.

George Bush did not cause the attack of 9/11 - those people hated us before G.B and will continue to hate us afterwards - your "theory" or idle musings are ill informed and infantile in their logic....or maybe this is your attempt at being humorous - not sure.

Other than your delusional attempt to bash the president, the business community, everyone else, and the entire fabric of this nation ....

is there any factual basis for your concern?

Have you checked with your doctor re your meds recently?
