If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Transportation Security Agency: More Failures To Come

The time has come for our politically correct liberal "elite" to recognize that the nature of the threat that we nationally and civilizationally are under from Islamic Jihadists. The time has come for our politically correct liberal "elite" set aside their PC outlook and allow our transportation security personnel to do the unspeakable...to literally begin to profile those who commit terrorist attacks and to target those people fit that profile.

Israel and Saudi Arabia haven't had a significant terrorist attack on their transportation infrastructure in quite some time. Why? Because they understand the threat they face and attack that problem head on. They do so by vigorously targeting those who fit the profile of a terrorist and pursue them relentlessly. We on the other hand deny pillows to [possible] child terrorists. Which is, patently ridiculous. We target grandmothers and force them to frisking...our transportation security is ridiculous. Silly also fits the bill. But serious, certainly doesn't.

Instead of targeting "muslim" men...we harrass our domestic travelers for hours. Once upon a time, you could arrive at the airport 30 minutes before your flight was to depart...then after Sep 11, 2001, "security" demanded 2 hours. Now? 4-6. That is rediculous. How so? Because TSA couldn't figure out that a man traveling from Yemen without baggage, paying cash for a one way ticket MIGHT just be a terrorist.
