Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

The spread of the TSA isn't my fault. The "...but I *NEED* / am entitled to fly" crowd are the ones giving the green light to government. Because they got away with it at the airports, there's no reason to think they won't try to expand the program.
I train animals. I can assure you that humans aren't much different. The trainer doesn't care if the animals wants to do the routine - that's why there's a treat at the end.
But as long as people feel entitled to have that jet-setter lifestyle, flying back and forth from their real lives back to their islands...well, that's the important thing.
My family's from an island. I'm sorry you view going to see them as a "jet-setter lifestyle." Perhaps you don't care to interact with them in person.
As long as people pretend that not flying is somehow going to make everything better---because the TSA would never show up at docks or bus stations or right in the middle of the street---well, that's the important thing.
