    Who pats down the TSA agents?

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    You know the best way to be left alone going through airport security? Dressing like this:

    I remember in 2008, coming home from Iraq, the TSA agents in El Paso tried to make the CSM surrender the Battalion Colors and put them in the cargo hold. Their "reasoning" was that the guidon pole could be used as a "spear".

    I’m surprised their video surveillance didn’t make a highlight real on some news network.

    In the end, we were allowed to take the colors on the aircraft provided we removed them from the guidon pole. It was silly, yet sad to see such disdain towards us from these agents of “homeland security’.
    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made so and kept so by the exertions of better men [and women] than himself." ~John Stuart Mill, 1806 - 1873

    This used to irritate me every time my son flew in and out when he was active duty.
    He always got pulled aside and subjected to extra searches. :mad:

    As a passenger I'd feel a lot safer knowing there was a military guy with a spear riding shot gun on my plane.
    It is just ridiculous and insane the way the TSA reverse profiles.
