Liberty or Safety

The question comes up once again after a TSA security officer forced a 95 year old woman to remove an adult diaper. Err, what?

Yep, true.

Yep, crazy.

This story makes headlines because it's sooo out there, but should we be focused on the premise of what they are trying to do? First of all we do not have a right to fly on private airplanes traveling to and from various public airports. From that perspective none of our liberties are really being attacked regardless of the methods they may choose to use. We can simply choose not to to fly if we are so offended and maybe that is exactly what we should do...not fly.

Perhaps a message needs to be sent. Treat me like a terrorist and we'll do worse than any hijacker could. We'll put you out of business.
