I've got the fuckin' solution right here.



I'd put Keifer Sutherland, a bottle of Jack and a handgun on every flight.

Brilliant! Points for War on Terror AND War on Drugs. More with less.

Suvivors will be "interrogated" in Lithuania.

The "homos" will never be able to form an army. Their soldiers aren't allowed to talk to one another.

Your instinct seems to be to avoid the hard questions.

What evidence do you have that he has not been interrogated? Has he been set up with a fancy east coast lawyer who will defend him against charges of disturbing the peace?

He was arrested and read his Miranda rights (right to be silent). Apparently he talked (bragged) the first day anyway.

I have never blamed the current administration for the failed attack, although I disagree with some policy changes they've made, but can you defend their words and actions in the first 72 hours after the attack? Don't forget, this thread was started to respond to the preposterous new rules about not leaving your seat or covering your lap the final hour of a trip.

For the past eight years, approximately 2 million Americans a day have been subjected to humiliating searches at airport security checkpoints, forced to remove their shoes and jackets, to open their computers, and to remove all liquids from their carry-on bags, except minuscule amounts in marked 3-ounce containers placed in Ziploc plastic bags -- folding sandwich bags are verboten -- among other indignities.

This, allegedly, was the price we had to pay for safe airplanes. The one security precaution the government refused to consider was to require extra screening for passengers who looked like the last three-dozen terrorists to attack airplanes.

Since Muslims took down Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, in 1988, every attack on a commercial airliner has been committed by foreign-born Muslim men with the same hair color, eye color and skin color. Half of them have been named Mohammed.

And so, despite 5 trillion Americans opening laptops, surrendering lip gloss and drinking breast milk in airports day after day for the past eight years, the government still couldn't stop a Nigerian Muslim from nearly blowing up a plane over Detroit on Christmas Day.

--Ann Coulter Dec 30th column
That's the problem with your stats.

It's a colossal waste of time if nothing else. When I flew to Houston last week the person in front of me taking off his shoes and jacket was an airline pilot.
That's efficient screening.

Yes, it is. It's annoying and stupid and pointless.

And Ann Coulter is still a fucking idiot, no matter what she says.

And you think profiling would work better? Let the white folks through stop the brownies? Because that wouldn't be the easiest security fault to work around. Pilot's are immune to security breaches? Wow, someone hasn't watched enough movies in their lifetime.

Just short sighted ignorance... Yes, what we have now isn't perfect but it's far better than what we had pre 9/11.
