That's because there is nothing better. There is no alternative. Scrap Patriot Act, TSA, and Homeland Security. That would save a lot of money every year.
Now there's a grand idea ! Seb says "there is nothing better" ( than the TSA
? ) there is no alternative ( to DHS ? )
Scrap the Patriot act ? In other words, make it as easy as possible for terrorists to communicate with each other, and as difficult (or impossible) for our FBI to monitor their communications, and as difficult as possible to catch them...........then, we can all sit back and cross our fingers, and hope like hell they, (the terrorists), have suddenly decided to quit trying to attack us any more. And obviously, if the terrorists decide to be "good", there would no longer be a need for all of the hassle of going through everyone's suitcases, would there ?
Here's a question for you Seb............do you really think this is likely ? You really think the "bad guys" have given up ?
If you do, I have a swell deal on a large bridge I'd like to interest you in............

If you think either of them is actually running the show at DHS, you are sorely mistaken. I'm not even sure that Bush knew what he was doing when he signed them into existence.
Maverick.........when you say "either of them", are you referring to TSA
and DHS ? if you are, (and I'm sure you already know this......), TSA
takes it's orders from DHS, and Janet Napolitano "runs" DHS; now, I'm sure we ALL
know who "runs" Queen Janet. Not a "perfect" set up, but then I didn't set it up, so what can I say ?
Next..........why do you insist on bringing George Bush into this ? Sure, we all know both these agencies were started during his administration; and most of us remember there were some airplanes flying into big buildings in NYC, and killing lots of folks; Bush obviously had to do something ! What would you have done ? What would anyone have done ?
Maybe we should call up Obama and ask him what he thinks Bush should have done ? (that ought tom be good for a few laughs !)
You know what ? Geo. Bush forgot all about Bill Clinton about 15 minutes after he changed his address to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. I think you, Obama, and everyone else should do likewise; forget about George Bush; the guy's retired now; he's "out of power".........people get tired of listening to a "broken record", ya know what I mean ?
We're trying to discuss a serious subject here; we need ideas........GOOD ideas; ideas that will work;

But that's the point. Shoe bomber, underwear bomber, underwear 2, they were foreign nationals, boarding at foreign airports. Yet the TSA harasses old ladies leaving Maui, who obviously came to Maui to meet up with explosives experts disguised champion paddle boarders.
So, to be clear, you are advocating for the elimination of all security at US airports?
If he is, that's a BAD
idea; and idea that WON"T work !
|Quoting soon7x7 (Reply 29):|
Disband the TSA and prompt returning US soldiers that have confronted these very types into a new experienced airport security alliance that has true credentials and experience.
Here's the beginning of an idea...........returning soldiers; trouble is, which ones do we use; sure, they know how to kill bad guys, but you're kinda "limited" as to who you can kill at an airport; and why "disband" TSA
? You must have an organization; you just have to have the right people working in it; I'm sure a lot of returning troops would qualify, after proper training......
here's another idea; I think a much better idea..........first, call Janet in, give her a one way ticket to, say, Norfolk Island; tell her to STAY there till you call her, and tell her NOT to call you; (and make sure she's blindfolded AND
muzzled) Then call Retired General Stanley McChristal (hope I spelled your name right, Stan), and after "Dear Leader" apologizes to the General, double his pay before he "retired", and put him in COMMAND of DHS, and TSA
, and tell him to "straighten those suckers out" ! In no time at all, all of this current horse puckey at airports will be a thing of the past.
