I'm highly annoyed with all the whining (aka major bitchfest) from US consumers about the new TSA security screening rules. This has been my standing thought about this as advertised via Google Buzz
"all the people bitching about the new TSA screening processes and how this is such a 'huge invasion of privacy' and these policies should be abolished will also be the same people first in line to bitch about how a successful terrorist event was able to occur and these policies could have prevented with these same policies and where was TSA then.
people really need to stop being such sissies get the fuck over it. as someone who travels for work a good deal of the year both domestically and internationally a pat down if it prevents my plane blowing up is a SMALL PRICE TO PAY if it could potentially save my life and the lives of hundreds of people on board if not thousands should it be hijacked and used as a weapon and flown into a highly populated area."
But thoughts? This really comes to mind because it's all over the news before a major US holiday (Thanksgiving) I was offsite at a procurement training where our case study was based off of this issue and I was shocked to see how so many people, mostly Federal employees from across the nation, felt about and how apparently ignorance really is contagious.
And if you plan to make the argument of why the US turned cheek towards implementing Israeli-ish security policies please be mindful that the US consumer base for commercial air flight travel is 100% different then that of Israel which means they have the advantage (some would say luxury) of implementing unique security polices where as the USA has to focus on a much more diverse consumer base that outstrips Israel in business 10 to 1 on any given day.
anyway, thoughts because I'd really hate to think I'm the only sane person out there.
