This is outrageous, What is the use of metal wands then? It "Depends On" (TSA) them now, for the elderly woman to have an embarrassing accident on the plane.

Was she flying out of Desitin or Destin, FL? Apparently they've had a "rash" of problems with elderly flyers.

This political correctness by the Obama Administration

Has Got to Go

Now were frisking helpless frail elderly americans

People at the airport are touching our kids

Our wives, Our elderly, and our privates.

They are invading the Privacy of Innocent people

In order Not to offend the very people we are trying

To blow us up,

Muslims who engage in anti-american terrorist

Activities who Hate us

Come on Enough is Enough

Where is Obama on all of this

Not a word or a comment from him.

Why doesn't Obama tell his appointee,

Janet Napolitano to stop

Interrogating people who are obiously Not a

Terrorist Threat to america.

Obama needs to focus on the countries from which

The Majority of muslim terrorists come from

And stop harrassing americans.

Pretty obvious NObama, Obama hates americans, and Obama Silent are the same person. I just think it's funny that some people have to pretend to be more than one person just to get a point across and try to make it sound interesting or relevant.

Agreed. Does that person think nobody notices the same irritating writing style that makes people overlook the ridiculous comments instead of actually read them? Seriously.

The TSA needs to be disbanded sooner than later. These are the same bunch of worthless scum that allowed those 19 terrorist from Saudi Arabia to attack us on 9/11 and kill three thousand Americanís and now our government has the ignorance to give these people a second chance and increase their job duties. Wakeup America! These injustices have to be corrected and fast before we are all speaking Arabic.

You got that right. It's the same in El Paso whereby mayor crook will do everything not to upset the juarenos visiting Hell Paso.

Never leave home with a soiled diaper. That should be the moral of this story!
