Jus Jim, your assessment of the situation is right on the mark. Our lemming-like willingness to trade dignity and liberties for the illusion of safety goes against everything taught in "civics" class many moons ago.

So if your plane blows up, how will you feel about "dignity and liberties" in that split second? I would seriously like to know.

They're not reading your email or going through your sex toy drawer; they're just frisking or scanning you before you fly.

The T S A shut off the x-ray machines, so people couldn't refuse them and they didn't do hardly any pat downs, they just wanded everybody . So do to the threat of opt-out the government folded, the people won but the media won't write it like that, will they !

MINS, I hear you however I have more to fear from being pulled over by an over zealous cop or an encounter with one of my homies with an itchy trigger finger. How do you know they are not reading our email and don't you realize one does not need sex toys when there are TSA agents willing to feel you up?
