The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
I haven't flown since 2003. With any luck, I never will again. I enjoy a nice road trip, and a Tundra is a nice road vehicle.
I was arguing last week with someone online who thought that it was reasonable to keep someone on the watch list from buying guns...
So the fact that I own this would make that person wet themselves?
I would like to suggest this shirt instead.
I just washed mine so I could bring it to Louisville.
May I, kind sir, offer you something from Spike's Tactical?
Perhaps a "Hadji Don't Surf" t-shirt?
Are you sure its not the airline thats f*ucking up?
You are off the list, with the efficiency of the government this will take effect in February of 2013.....and think they want socialized health care!!!
Did you buy your ticket before or after the TSA decision? It's possible that the airline checks the TSA database at the time when your ticket is purchased, which may explain why you're still showing up as flagged this time.
The really interesting question is what happens next time when everything happens after you're supposed to be off the list.
I'm not on anyone's list, but I have no desire to fly anywhere anymore. You can't take a lighter, a tube of toothpaste or a bottle of shampoo on a plane, and you have to take off your shoes to go through check in. It's like going to prison.
I will not be even slightly surprised if within 10 years you have to change into a jumpsuit with no pockets before boarding the plane. No thanks. If I'm gonna be processed into a prison camp, I'm sure as hell not gonna pay top dollar for the privilege.
Surely you realize that wanting to get taken off of the "suspicious person" list is a suspicious act. Do do you have something to hide? Bah! I've long said that airline security as practiced is so disconnected from reality that it doesn't even begin to be funny. Securing airlines is a lot like securing a computer in that if it is really secured it's unusable.
I have the "I Love My Country, It's My Government I Don't Trust" t-shirt that I plan on wearing for the next non-business trip I fly out.
