    I would love to see these politicians allow these kind of bills go before the people to vote on and just see how far they would go. Its sad but I'm at the point of trusting both parties. I trust the republicans slightly more than the democrats

  • COMMON SENSE ... I KNEW MR. PAYNE AND YOU'RE NOT HIM
    herbsnout
    Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), the bill's sponsor, said the legislation is a "common sense approach" to fighting terrorism. Perhaps Rep. Speier should keep up on her/his reading ... the war on terror is over ... so, sayth the Administration.

  • Expand TSA??
    GoodGround
    The TSA is an ill considered idea in the first place. A small bomb well placed can kill many people at one time. It is a headline grabbing terrible incident and should be guarded against by some type of screening and security measures at airports. TSA is complete overkill that has proved porous as a screen door. Now they want to expand this dubious program to other mass transit. It will not work. The very nature of mass transit makes it an easy target for terror attacks. If freedom is sacrificed for safety in an environment that can not, by its nature, be made safe then what is the purpose of this expansion of government power and control? If it were possible to do this terror gangs would just move to another venue where crowds gather. Times Square New Years Eve, sporting events, parades and on and on. No, the fact is the government is just creating make work jobs and giving the illusion of security and safety while curtailing freedom and mobility. This so called security process has gone too far already and has become an institutionalized occupation force in many of our lives. Myself, I never fly if I can drive. Even long trips. This is because the intrusive TSA employees infest the airports. Airline travel is unpleasant enough without the addition of the prison like atmosphere. To those who say "Well we have not had an incident so----. I would reply we have not had an incident on ANY mass transit, or crowded events so ------. This is costing 100s of millions of dollars we don't have to solve a problem we can't really protect against. The government's answer is to expand the programs to cover problems and solve security issues we have no reason to think are real. Even if real can't be solved with current TSA like institutions.

  • TSA don't NAFTA do that
    docket09
    The endless war of error has been a profound waste of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness for most non-terrorists who fly coach class on domestic flights within North America's Free Trade Zone, aka NAFTA. All those who want to fall into line, be X-rayed, groped, and ripped off are free to PAY to fly TSA brand airlines. I'll take my chances with basic metal detector screening and armed flight crews.

  • The Ghost of John Edgar Hoover
    docket09
    No foreign terrorists have ever highjacked an Amtrak train. Maybe the Federal Bureau of Insinuation can stage something.

  • TSA is Unconstitutional In Every Way
    eaunan
    The TSA must be immediately closed / shut down along with any other agency as a parent (eg. DHS). The TSA has NO business within the constitution to DO the things they do.
