We could fix this whole issue by requiring the TSA to only hire Hot Chicks.

Cancer surviving flight attendant told to remove prosthetic breast during pat-down
That's messed up on so many different levels.
My aunt who is a breast cancer survivor would have literally brought the wraith of hell upon these people if this would have happened to her.  She is an artist and owner of a  liquor store in my hometown aka very opinionated liberal stuck in a conservative bible belt... She is the nicest lady ever until you piss her off.

I did hear someone say in the today I hate thread the new TSA pat down is called "gaterape". I had not heard about this new pat down procedure, I really hope I don't have to endure either this coming Wednesday when I have to fly to NJ for thanks giving. That will make me a very unhappy camper.

That's a view of a workstation in TSA offices at the Indianapolis International Airport.

Look at the desktop background.

Now look at this:

That is completely and utterly fucked up. Fuck the TSA, I feel like they are more shitty and annoying then cops.

I have an extreme fear of flying and everything that surrounds it.

Therefore, any amount of security is fine with me.  Makes me feel safer.

I do understand the frustrations w/ invasion of privacy, but for me personally, I have no issues with it.
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

You have no issues with recorded video of your naked self being stored on a hard drive that some jackhole TSA agent making $28K per year has access to? That's crazy to me.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

I see your point here, but when it comes to people who go on business trips and have to fly maybe 2 round trips a week, they can't deal with that kind of shit. My dad has said that he has missed a flight because of the new x-ray.

I just think the security is so ridiculous, just because like under 100 people out of the history of commercial flying have hijacked a plane or brought on a bomb or a weapon (and keep in mind this is 100 vs the hundreds of thousands of flights that happen around the world every week). The money and time and inconvenience put into security is just ridiculous.

We could fix this whole issue by putting that Joe guy who runs Girls Gone Wild in charge of the naked-xray machine.

Correct.  I have no issues with that.

I clearly see why people do have issues with it -- but for me, all the added security just gives me a sense of safety.  I understand that my fear in completely irrational, but that doesn't stop it from occurring.
