Problem would be sending all those TSA people back to McDonald's might bloat the minimum wage system.

foubabou, maybe we should get rid of the minimum wage system too.

the easiest fix would be to BAN any type of carry on luggage. Nor briefcases, no purses, no roller bags and no shopping bags. They could start by stopping the people who carry everything they own and then whine about how there is not enough overhead space.

Of course the best option would be to permit profiling - but heaven knows the far left would have a hissy fit and huffy snit if that were to happen.

One shoe bomber, and everyone has to take off their shoes?
What about the underware bomber, why do we not have to take off our underware?
Just do what Israel does and profile!!

Well Lets see maybe comedian Dana Gould's idea would probably solve some of the traffic problem through lines.....Put the damn detectors at the bottom of the walk through to scan shoes instead of making people sit and take them off. Simply make the detection devices more advanced. But the airlines and TSA are too damn stupid and cheap to actually spend the money.

Simple fix. If one was looking for a Chelmon rostratus they would likely not waste their time wandering around in the middle of Death Valley. Virtually every terrorist threat to aircraft and transportation worldwide since 9/11 has come from one specific group. The threat so defined the TSA might legitimately consider modifying a page from Lois Lerner's book on targeting enemies.

How dare you profile a poor Chelmon. They are just trying for a better life. Besides, they are slippery and hard to cavity search. At least a seven on the SCALE.

I know how they can speed up line times! Fire all of the TSA employees and make our government stop being a-holes to the world! suddenly, no one wants to blow up America and we don't need the retarded, warmongering, fascism breeding Patriot Act anymore.

You must be senile. No one wants to blow up America ? If it weren't for the Patriot Act, you probably would be dead by now., but of course, being a liberal, you would have sided with the bomber.

Go to the Israelis and Italians, and study how they provide the best airport security in the world. Bring that knowledge to the US, implement said knowledge and then fire 90% of the Barney Fife's working for the TSA aka "Thousands Standing Around" who seem to know how to drink coffee and nothing about security.
