10 Things The TSA Should Do On Its 10th Anniversary

נשלח לפני
 
No one was surprised by a November 1 report that the Transportation Security Administration glossed over the health risks of its airport X-ray scanners. The investigation found that anywhere from six to 100 US airline passengers each year could get cancer from the machines -- a hazard critics have warned about ever since the devices were quietly deployed in many airports almost two years ago.

My only plea is will those who control the TSA (those who hold the purse-strings, me thinks) pay attention? Where is the Occupy The Airport crowd to demand changes?

Please, not another anti-TSA rant from a liberal media source. We get it, they're unpopular. Move on to suggesting a workable alternative.

If it was'nt for the American attitude towards middle east you would not have had the problems you have created for every airline passenger and airport staff in the world today blame yourselfs

The level of stupity in the above comment is astounding. I guess kissing the collective butts of the terrorist from 1973 to 2001 won their hearts and minds. Shervington would have us believe we caused 9/11. What an idiot.

You are so full of crap...I can smell it from here. Most of teh middle East hates us because of who we are and what we have. All they want to do is kill us...so using your brilliant idea, we are just sippose to sit quietly and wait for it. The radical Muslems caused us to do this, but since you are so well informed...lets do this from now on. We will issue weapons to every man and woman getting on an airplane (regardless of where it is goinf) at the gate. Then everyone has a weapon. When we arrive at our destination, the cabin staff comes along and collects up all the weapons for the next flight of passengers. Hows that...sound good to you? I dont know what rock you have been living under, but you certainly need to go back to it...somewhere in Liberal land. If something was to happen on a flight that you are on...I would bet my life that you would be crying like a baby...demanding that someone protect you.

This comes from a brit. Perhaps you should look at the foreign policy of your own country and the way it colonized every place that had anything of value. Then the brits would steal everything in sight, while doing very little for the local population. This attitude was the beginning of the resentment toward the west. The U.S. has propped a few bad actors but never took over a country to steal its resources.

As far as i know Britain has never kissed any terrorist butt but had to put up with america paying for and giving arms to the IRA and secondly if the world does not agree with the american way they are in the wrong mark my words in the next fifty years america will not be the policeman of the free world because China Russia and India will tell you where to get off and because you have got such a big money deficit youre stuffed like europe but you don't see it because you are so inwardly looking news about the rest of world does not reach or interest the majority of the american population nor your politicians. and the British foreign policy of the past still haunts us today the same can also be said of the french german and spanish you can name a lot of other countries that did land grabs in the past but then again look at American bases still in Europe Japan south Pacfic that don't want but put up with to appease US policy abroad

Individuals, not the U.S. government, gave money to the IRA for a simple reason. You have no business in Northern Ireland. So pack up your stuff and get out. It's not yours, any more than India or Pakistan. Many fools have thought the U.S. would cave. The first one was a guy named George 5th. How'd that work out? By the way those american bases in Europe are what held NATO together. If the U.S. hadn't been there, you'd be eating borscht, and learning about the virtues of socialist rule. Oh, wait a minute, you folks seem to like cradle to grave government domination. Those bases in the Pacific are there at the request of the host governments. Seems they like the idea of the U.S. paying for their security. When the Philipines felt we were no longer needed, we left. Can't say that for Brits in Northern Ireland.

As a pilot I love airplanes and flying. I have an upcoming trip to Las Vegas and I am dreading it because of the airline/airport hassle. So sad. Sure hope I can find a new plane before then.

Why are you dreading it? I don't let the TSA ruin my trips, and I have gone through enhanced security since 1989 thanks to an implanted pump. Your mindset already is so negative that you're bound to see bad things where they don't exist.

It's very difficult to keep a positive attitude while being unnecessarily irratiated, then getting my junked groped. Maybe we should equip each TSA checkpoint with a Buddist monk to help us negative types throught the crisis.

It isn't just TSA. The whole airline expierence anymore is pretty much the same as the Greyhound expierence. Just over quicker. First class buys some insulation but I won't pay it (4 tickets). The travel expierence used to be a nice part of the trip. Just me, just saying. And don't think I'm knocking the airlines; they have just done what they have to do to try and survive. I personally have only had one problem with an airline. That isn't much considering I have flown a fair amount.

You are being pretty hard on Greyhound. I stopped by a station a week or so ago to drop off a package for shipping and saw no TSA or TSA-like activities at all. It was very pleasant; everyone was cordial. I have had excellent experiences traveling by train as well. Splurge on a sleeper room, good (perhaps not great) food, wine tasting in the afternoons, and an available theater. All included in the price of the ticket. They wind through back yards and industrial areas. You see all kinds of different things going by. If one has the time I highly recommend it.

Have traveled in my youth by train. Maybe there can be a resurgence if people could slow down a little. No doubt it is economical when run properly.

I was a road warrior in DC on 9/11, The airline problems were very expensive to someone whose livelihood required constant trips. In the aftermath I discovered AMTRAK. For my customers in New England it was actually quicker to take the train from Union Station than it was to deal with security and take a plane. I could show up 5 minutes before departure, hop on a train and be off. The only drawback to AMTRAK was the lack of car rental agencies at the stations. I'm retired now so I don't know for sure but if they have added car rental agencies they should be getting lots of business traffic.

I am glad you were able figure a solution to your travel problem. I do think AMTRAK operates at a huge loss and is gov't subsidized. Personally, I would like to see the gov't get out of the subsidy business. Good business doesn't need a subsidy. I have said in an earlier string the same thing about the subsidized airlines.

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. ~ William Pitt

Really? You're citing the words of an English nobleman/politician from the Revolutionary War period? If you study his life, you'll realize that Pitt the Elder was the consummate politician, able to straddle the fence on any issue. In the same letter in which he says "I rejoice that America has resisted", Pitt also writes this little gem...

"I am no courtier of America; I stand up for this kingdom. I maintain, that the parliament has a right to bind, to restrain America. Our legislative power over the colonies is sovereign and supreme. When it ceases to be sovereign and supreme, I would advise every gentleman to sell his lands, if he can, and embark for that country."

Hmm. "Our legislative power over the colonies is sovereign and supreme." Sounds like a proponent of tyrannical power to me, as long as it resides in his branch of government.

Hi Indy - Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I cited the source of the quote as is common practice, or should be... That stated, the quote can stand on its own merit, and be debated as such without invoking a history lesson on the source, which was not my intent.

After reading your response to my post, I'll take leave with this thought - don't look conspicuous, it draws fire... I guess I should have known better...lol...

Have a good day Indy.

There's only one point in the above article that I disagree with. Things can get worse. If the practices that have taken us to this point are not reversed, this bunch of Barney Fife's will continue to find new and creative ways to violate passengers, and the Bill of Rights. I cannot believe congress hasn't had enough of this rogue hunta, and defended them.

Want a workable solution? Transfer 65%of the TSA budget to the local APs and let the locals handle security....
indy2001
indy2001 0
From the state of many local airports that I've seen, that is the LEAST workable solution. How long do you think it would take for federal money earmarked for security to be siphoned off for everything but security? Many state and local governments are far less capable than the feds, although we like to believe otherwise.

As a frequent Flyer not a pilot and a WW2 Vet i also worked in security at a small southern airport prior to 9/11 and was let go from a minimum wage job because the public panicked, my main objection to the TSA is
they forget we passengers are Human @ my age 87 i am in a wheelchair to go through and last trip early this month they patted me and Xrayed me
both and never gave me a chance to pick or to object, most of them were RUDE (not All) so i dread my next trip which unfortunatly is allready booked Just ole JIM

Trust me. I[m from the government and here to help you.

As I recall TSA and the developer of the machine assured the public that the machines had been tested and found to be well within acceptable parameters. They assured the people that there was no danger from using the machines. I remember because it was just before a flight from BWI to JAX for an occasion

If the TSA can randomly search your car, what is stopping them from randomly searching your home? And a terrorist could be walking down the street, so lets take random pedestrians and strip search them for explosives. Aren't these the next logical steps? We want to be safe, don't we?
