    They've done such a good job at Airports that they have extra manhours to spend in bus "stops." Are trains next? Gas stations near the Interstate highway?

    "By-permission" is government code for saying that the TSA has NO AUTHORITY to engage in this publicity stunt. It's just Big Brother stretching his muscles.

    Wow, so if you're packing a bomb you could just say "no thanks" to the search. Gee, brilliant... why do they waste our time and money?

    So if I appear to be a security threat (ponytail, skull ring, pentagram ring, pool cue case) and I still decline to be searched, but I insist on getting on the bus.... what then?

    Guess what, girls and boys. The jihadists have won. This is no longer America.

    I no longer blame the gov't. After seeing how many people blindly throw their freedoms away I feel that ignorance is no excuse, it's the people's fault, gov't is just taking advantage of their extreme credulity.

    Well, it's a step up from the NYC program that was/is operating in the subways and you would get turned away if you declined a search. :rolleyes:

    All I want to know is, is there a market for professional name creators...I mean, Visual Intermodal Prevention Response a/k/a VIPeR. Someone got to add that to their accomplishments for the year! :neener:

    Slavery vs Rebellion

    Every day, we get the choice between slavery and rebellion, and so far, everyone pretty much OK with slavery.

    "Patriots" appears to be more of a sad prophesy coming true than just a crackpot novel. Shukran (sarcastically written) to all the AmeriKans that destroyed America.

    Notice the aggressive acronym, anybody?

    Visual Intermodal Prevention Response

    VIPR ("Viper")

    "Bad to the bone" and all that, I guess. (And it's pretty darn obvious that the phrase was coined to fit the acronym, and not the other way around.)

    But the guy that was able to come up with an alternate for "Intimidation" got the free beer
    They had to leave out the "and cause that spelled would Vipar wrong

    Based on my interpretation of the fourth amendment I don't think the American government has the legal authority to search me before I board an airplane let alone a private bus. When the gov does this it causes many problems. Everybody agrees this is a problem, but you have to offer a solution or the gov will and arguably has a duty to intervene.

    However, the constitution doesn’t restrict the airlines from performing these searches. It might seem like an insignificant detail if the airlines are responsible for their security instead of the gov, but I believe it to be a very important detail. What do you think?

    Let the consumer decide. Example: You want to carry your gun on an airplane? Then fly Delta because no other airlines will allow it. Instead we have a federal law that prohibits anybody from carrying guns on airplanes…unless you are a mall ninja Air Marshall. :p
