though i would prefer tougher security measures to try to combat terrorism, all this bickering from both sides is getting annoying. just reboot the screening system to pre-9/11 days. the risk is still small % and compared to all the banter around prevention.

fire all TSA employees go private because the government can't do anything effeciently. spend money on technology to get teleportation invention moving forward

The TSA is heads and shoulders above the days of minimum wage screeners.

Its a nice suggestion but what bottom barrel security guard are we gonna deal with now if we have private companies do it. they make it seem like they are gonna get Marines and Navy seals to do their screening. either way its gonna be a pain in the arse, everything was fine until these new machines in my mind.
