66. Raises hand. Of course the treatment is over the top. But it's

repeated who knows how many times a day at airports all over the US. Each and every person with a plane ticket on a commercial airline is considered a terror suspect until proven otherwise. It doesn't matter if you are an infant or an elderly infirm person with Alzheimers. You are subject to detainment and your person can be searched without probable cause and without a warrant.

And the American sheep go along with this nonsense out of abject fear and because no one in authority stands up for people's rights and calls bullshit.

Who the hell thinks that someone determined to bring down an airliner is going to let TSA goons stand in their way? The money spent on having these morons feel up housewives ought to be invested in smart security that might actually do some good.
