Hey, little old ladies and infants need to victims of the politically-correct security scam, too. Don't believe that it was just America-hating Muslims who attacked us on 911. There were some infants piloting those planes and taking hostages aboard the aircraft. Ok, but I'm all for targeting Muslims. Don't care in the least about hurting any feelings or political-correctness. That's the source of so many problems, today. Muslims support terrorism just by not speaking out against it. And I'm sick of treating them with special considerations, especially with tax dollars. Jeez, if only men would man-up and women would shut-up. We might put some natural order into righting the wrongs tearing this country down.

TSA Atlanta has many issues both internal and external. Working conditions are less than ideal with long days, and little to no encouragement or reward.

I have found the entire flying experience to be a hassle and I have found driving is always the better option even at 3.51 per gallon. Plus, i dont have to surrender my basic rights just to get on an airplane. Things like freedom of speech (so long as it does not infringe on the rights of others), right to freely move without hindrance, ect ect.

The politicians must have had to wait in line!

I don't mind the waiting in line as much as I do the multiple gate changes (to different concourses) 2 minutes before the plane is to board. Especially when I've taken great pains to be at the airport two hours before scheduled departure!

TSA in Atlanta is nothing more than an affirmative action program gone wrong.

Part of the inefficiency includes passengers who are not prepared when they et to the front of the line. They know they need to take off their shoes, belt and put their laptops in the tub.

Just a comment from a person that travels around 250 days a year. Certainly the TSA EVERYWHERE has their issues and is at a minimum poorly run. The bigger issue is the amount of numbnuts that come to the airport with all the crap they are not supposed to take through security, don't know where they are going or what they are supposed to be doing.

I digress....

I agree, that is a root cause of the long wait times. The last time I flew, which was only a few weeks ago, the guy in front of me went through the metal detector 3 times before they pulled him aside to hand check. Meanwhile, the line behind me got longer and longer.

People always seem to forget about the middle aged, ex-army, white males named Timothy Mcveigh and Terry Nichols who killed 168 people in the Oklahoma City bombing. Aside from 9/11, that's the worst act of terrorism committed on US soil. To focus all our attention on "muslims" would be irresponsible.

Don't forget Eric Rudolph who killed a cop and a guest reporter, blinded a nurse, and endangered countless people in public places with his IEDs.

Somehow this doesn't convince people we need to make all blue-eyed white males account for their movements at all times and give up all weapons. Not patriotic enough I guess.
