Its time we just admit that all this screening shiat is nothing more than an attempt to assuage us of our egos and that in reality if someone really really really wanted to blow up a plan they could do so very easily.

We've just been lucky because for the most part terrorists are pretty farking dumb

Enough is enough.
Do you really see this as forever? Won't/can't. All things change.
Imagine this, but much worse, 'cause that is where TSA is headed.

This TSA fearmongering never made much sense to me. The more security measures are in place, the more pissed off people you have waiting in line, and if a terrorist wants to piss all over the illusion of safety they just need to blow up their IED where there are 90 people clustered together in the snaking line before the scanners.

I still think a "speed" line with no scanners for a couple months might illustrate to the government that this is a waste of money run by, as someone else pointed out, people absolutely without qualification to stop terrorists. "You can take flight X but there WON'T BE PATDOWNS, so you take that risk into your own hands. Be aware that your CHANCE OF DEATH has increased 0.00000000000004%."

You're more likely to get killed in a car accident driving to/from the airport, but whatever... fearmongering and facing reality will always be at odds.

In the interest of not getting busted for a felony, let me say that "a friend" went through a domestic flight security line with multiple cigarette lighters, match packs and a knife in his carryon just yesterday. He also had a laptop battery with 172,800 joules of energy in it.

He still had to take off his shoes.

I am so glad they roughed up my 73 year old aunt, believing her pacemaker card to be fake. I felt safe.

The TSA is the most expensive illusion of safety ever.  High school drop outs who've just recently received their GED are not keeping us safe.
