Cercerning the debate over airport security, perhaps what we need is a compromise. This is America, so let's have a more democratic and consumer driven solution.

What I'm proposing is that when we book a flight, we can choose between a "high security" or "low security" option. Those choosing from one of the low security flights will not be required to pass through security screening. You'll also be entitled to a $20 discount.

Rejected.

As we've seen, it's not just the people on the plane in danger of terrorist take control.

Full strip down & body cavity searches & xrays & MRIs for EVERY passenger, NO exceptions.

Don't like it, then don't fly.

with all these cuts to the FAA service will be reduced.
which means prices will go up.
soon enough it'll be cheaper to rent a car and pay for the gas to drive wherever it is you want to go.

or Amtrak will make a huge comeback!

Why would I a hot young white women check your points? TSA has HARD men working LONG hours. And their BIG! So they can handle a small Angry white P like yours.

I think if you pay a $50 fee you should be able to avoid the checkpoint all together. Security screening is for poor people.
