Terrorism is a joke. It's killed fewer people than lightning. Or coconuts. Or sharks. Not to mention that even if we had another 9/11 every month, flying would still be safer than driving.
It's an excuse to destroy our freedoms. Bush was so dumb, he played right into Osama's hands, destroying the very freedoms bin Laden wanted him to.
Taking my shoes off is an invasion of privacy. Looking through my bags, my pockets, telling me I can't take water with me, it's all an invasion of privacy.
It's disgusting, un-American, and cowardly.
However, if they hired attracting 20-somethings to frisk me, I would be okay with that.
