TSA security guards are not law enforcement officers. Calling them "officer" is a slap in the face to real cops who have years of training to serve and protect. I support this bill even though I'm not a GOP supporter. This issue seems to cross political lines.

9/11 - sharp objects: USA response? NO sharp objects. Then, the shoebomber: USA response? take off your shoes. Then, the liquid bombers: USA response? NO LIQUIDS!. Then, the underwear bomber: USA response? BODY SCANS!. Don't you see that this is all a big joke? It doesn't keep us any safer!

I honestly could not agree more.

Soon there will be an ingested explosive, and you will have to go on the plain with an empty stomach!

The TSA's main accomplishment seems to be obedience training for the American public -- priming us to be docile (and even polite) when ordered to give up our civil liberties

Any bill that halts or slows the TSA is good by me...
