Every day 5000 metal and plastic tubes, filled with 100,000 pounds of jet fuel hurtle through the skies @ 540 mph....
3. DENY suspicions mofo from EVER flying.
Set a service where a frequent flier can get an FBI background check, to include retinal scan, finger prints, DNA. Have those people be able to go through a reduced check stage by scanning their biometrics.
Holiday fliers and occasional fliers will just have to STFU unless they too go get Pre-checked and FBI cleared.
Flying is NOT a right, its a convenience. It does NOT infringe on your constitutional rights to get a finger up the ass to check for C-4 if you are gonna fly. Don't want a finger? Good, GTFO and make the finger lines shorter for the rest of us that WANT to make a 1000 mile trip in 5 hours VS 17 in a car.
I don't know what the big deal is. Whenever I've visited the USA I never had any delays or hassles due to security checks.
London Heathrow, on the other hand... fuck me dead! I remember when I was 14 I was pulled aside by some asshat with an MP-5 acting like a tough guy. He was asking me questions about my Sony Discman (remember the days we didn't have MP3 players 10 years ago?) for over an hour... This was when I was LEAVING the UK.
I'm all for these scanners and security checks, though. I'm proud of my 4 inch penis and I have no quarrel with the security staff at airports getting to see it in all of its tiny glory!
