    Perhaps people who insist on living in the third century should confine themselves to the modes of travel available then.
    ...and that's being generous.

    Seems like the terrorists have won this one.

    I never cared about the metal detectors since those were just walk through and as long as you remembered to take all the crap out of your pockets, it did not slow anything up.

    But this current crap, which started with taking off shoes and now extends to some minimum wage government employee being able to touch me or make me walk through a scanner that shows me virtually naked has taken this way too far and is blatantly unconstitutional.

    What part of
    "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
    does the government not understand.
    And yet we continue to mindlessly obey their edicts like good little worker drones.

    Someone said that we do not have a right to fly.
    Why not? Where is the Federal governments constitutional authority to deny me the ability to enter into a private contact with a company that provides flight services?

    Allow me to summarize:

    ...Muslim nutjobs flying planes into buildings and killing a shitload of people prompting enhanced security on the part of the TSA that nabs those plane-downing nail clippers and asks granny to remove her slippers in order to be fair and not single out the people who, at first look, should be suspect under any definition of common sense, but are now, almost a decade of PC later, the ones who demand and will probably get special exemption from the very procedures put in place to protect us from another attack by Muslim nutjobs flying planes into buildings and killing a shitload of people prompting enhanced security on the part of the TSA that nabs those plane-downing nail clippers and asks granny to remove her slippers in order to be fair and not single out the people who, at first look, should be suspect under any definition of common sense, but are now, almost a decade of PC later, the ones who demand and will probably get special exemption from the very procedures put in place to protect us from another attack by Muslim nutjobs flying planes into buildings and killing a shitload of people prompting enhanced security on the part of the TSA that nabs those plane-downing nail clippers and asks granny to remove her slippers in order to be fair and not single out the people who, at first look, should be suspect under any definition of common sense, but are now, almost a decade of PC later, the ones who demand and will probably get special exemption from the very procedures put in place to protect us from another attack by...

    I don't fly commercial too often. For business travel, I usualy go on one of our
    two company planes. It's nice to lounge around the executive waiting area in the
    business hanger, eating hors d'oeuvres and perusing the latest copy of the BJT.
    Then just walking out the door onto the baby jet without any type of screening
    at all. Yes life is good when you work for a big evil oil company.

    Yep. They are adding insult to injury. Gotta love them PC lefties who love irony, but won't grasp this one.

    You guys don't fly out of DFW, do you? I'm TDY, coming home just before Thanksgiving, and if your guys aren't doing anything... :D

    At least, I'm assuming that that's the one that she means, based on context. It could just as easily be Bipolar Junction Transistor, Blue Jean Teddy, Bilateral Juxtafoveal Telangiectasis or Behineh Jouyan Tehran.

    Yes, Business Jet Traveler. It's one of those high gloss magazines with slick ads of nothing but mega-dollar jewelry, yatchs, private jets, presidential hotel suits around the world, etc. Everything very high end (as if I could ever afford such). It has good articles though.

    Well I'm really just a peon there, otherwise I'd send our plane right over to get you. ;)

    We fly out of Midland. Actually, you'd be surprised at the private jet business here. My company keeps theirs at the main airport (MAF). But there is another private airpark here, just right across the street from where I live. My bedroom window looks out over the runway. I never have to set an alarm, as the jets start taking off around 5:30 to 6:00 AM, right in my ear. I love watching them come and go.

    That's okay. Government personnel shouldn't get used to that kind of perk, even if they are the Speaker of the House. :D But I appreciate the thought.

    I'm so relieved, for you. For me, I'm just ashamed. I had a different idea of this publication's name. BJ Times? Too late to change the name?:o
