    The things you can't take on an airplane...

    I had to dispose of my shampoo, soap, and shaving gel solely based on the fact that their containers are too "large" (ie normal size). Now I wish I had made a scene just to make my point. How the hell am I supposed to take down a plane with my large containers!?

    What ridiculous things have you had to throw out because of the ridiculousness of the TSA?

    The 3-1-1 rule has been in effect at every airport nationwide since 2006 and has been pretty well publicized in the press. Regardless of its merits, had you seriously never heard of it before you reached the TSA checkpoint?

    At first I thought they would not let me fly with my inflatable GF, but it turns out I just had to clean her up and deflate her. So much for the mile high club.
    I can barely get my mouth around it.

    they should ban terminal food because the refund havoc they cause is inescapable when you're cruising at 15,000ft while stuck in a metal tube.

    I had to get rid of a torx wrench once. Flying back from a race and it was in my bag. Nicely cut down to fit in drill chuck (I didn't have the drill with me).

    They must have thought I was going to try and take the plane apart.

    the TSA is a joke. Not surprisingly it's ANOTHER government agency that doesn't function and/or is not needed, that we pay for.

    Yeah, help us get rid of whatever freedom we have left. DHS, TSA, INS, take the cake but we also have FBI, CIA, DEA, FDA, ATF, etc, etc, and on and on. We literally have hundreds of overlapping agencies competing for dollars and power. IMO, we need only get rid of the IRS, then most others will follow.
    Oh, and let us not forget Uncle Sam's father, you know, Daddy Warbucks who is partners with the FRS.. Ah yes, so proud to be an American.

    Yeah, you just put it in your checked luggage and you're most likely good to go. Like any sh@t for brains couldn't figure that out while watching Granny and little kids get felt up and humiliated by TSA. What a joke.
    That is of coarse if the baggage handlers don't steal it cause you do know those payed employees rummage through your luggage for easy pickins more than not right? But let's not stick together, or demand/expect better service from corporations that make profits from us providing that service, No, let's create another 3 letter government agency to do that for us, or should I say them, while we pay for it, and those same corporations control it anyway with money, favors, friends and influence.

    I've done a good bit of flying lately. I'm averaging a few flights per year, most domestic, but I have a couple longer ones over lots of water.

    It takes a few flights to get used to "the routine" to get through there quickly. I refused the scanner once and boy, I pissed off a couple TSA agents. But honestly, a lot of that stuff is so ridiculous and useless that more people should be refusing it.

    The TSA needs some incentive to streamline the process more...and so do the airlines for that matter. by charging more for checked bags, some airlines are encouraging people to take more stuff in their carryon, which makes for more stuff the TSA has to scan for. and now some are trying to charge for carryons. ridiculous. my last flight, I was able to check EVERYTHING without paying extra for it, and I just flew through security.

    The TSA needs to be abolished, it is just one more layer of government foot soldiers that will be turned and used against the American people. Wake up, your civil liberties are being incessantly eroded and we will all be enslaved by our government because we allow it.

    Almost got my CB multi tool confiscated from Las Vegas airport. It was in my camelback I had as a carryon with 2 helmets strapped to it. It went through the scanner and they thought it was a pocket knife. Funny thing is I flew out of MN in the same configuration with no problems. If it had a blade, they would have kept it.

    I'm not defending the TSA and the whole screening process, but the liquids thing was put into place because someone did try to get liquid explosives on a plane. It works like epoxy - you have to mix two (or maybe more, I don't really know the specifics) items together to create the explosive. That's why a would-be bomber couldn't just stick it in their checked luggage - they would have to actively mix the stuff on the plane.

    Again, not to defend TSA, but I really have had very little issue with the whole process since it was implemented. I've been hassled and searched a few times, but nothing too ridiculous. The worst was when I was pulled aside for a search and they rubbed that cloth on my bags to detect explosives residue and idiot doing the screening got sidetracked and just left the thing half sticking out of my bag. And then totally forgot about me. At first one of the other agents yelled at me for getting up to try and find the dude, but once he realized I had been waiting for him to return for almost 10 minutes, he helped me out and got me on my way. And I was with my kid, too. That was annoying. But I heard the guy getting taken to task as I walked away...

    They have found exactly zero, thats right, none. They haven't caught any terrorists either. They sure have got to feel up a bunch of folks though.

    I irritated TSA @ DIA a few months back. They wanted to scan me, so I asked for the patdown instead, followed by a cavity search. Followed that up with asking if they could use extra lube during insertion. TSA guy just gave me a funny look and said, just go through the metal detector. I think I ruffled his feathers a bit.

    I watched a TSA stooge give a uniformed solider a ration about a freaking tube of toothpaste and a deodorant stick. I'm thinking how much the solider goes through overseas then comes back here and has his toiletries confiscated by Barney Fife. WTF

    Thats why when I fly I dont take hardly anything. I take a backpack and a small dufflebag with stuff like shoes and crap in it. When I flew to Orlando in 08 it cost me $260 just to get our luggage there and back. It would have been cheaper to UPS it overnight the day before we left.

    I agree with security at airports, but the TSA is/was totally reactionary, and had a perfect reason/need/excuse for it. There was a time before the TSA, a very long and good time and then?. It has/will evolved into an another ineffective money/power/freedom grabbing government abbreviation. Just like the INS controls imigration, yeah right. Or how bout the war on drugs? How many abbreviated gov agencies milkin' that one? They're doing a bang up job aye. Don't even get me started on how first state, now both state and fed have turned prisons into a profit for both private interest and government. No conflict of interest with our freedom there?
    A shoe bomber was caught once, after failure, now we all take our shoes off. Sorry, that just makes us stupid and reactionary. Scary to think what's next, anal bomber?
    Plus at what point, how much invasion do we tolerate before we say no, enough. At what cost to us financially, and as so called "Home of the Brave Land of the Free Americans. And at what point should terrorists consider victory or can/have they already?

    It's all just bs anyway, rant over.

    Don't forget DHS's Big Sis, she's coming to the party too, whether you like fat chix or not. Talk about who's watching on iterwebz? NSA with it's "Stellar Wind" should be mentioned but who knows what others there are.

    Ahh yes the good ole TSA. One of those government agencies that has very little oversight yet we the taxpayer get to pay for it for the sake of our "safety". I seriously believe this dept was formed for the illusion of security to scare off any wannabe terrorists. However in reality they don't actually DO anything. Well at least they employ people but so does McDonalds, Burger King, Walmart, etc...

    I actually got neg repped for my posts here from someone who signed pointerDixie but IDK. Said I should be proud to be an American, which I am but anyhow. Do you, whoever you are, know what being "American" means? I got news for ya, real "Americans" would have started another revolution against BS like this, and all the other that we deal with on the regular long ago, but you go ahead and wave your flag, and stand in the shadows of your fore fathers greatness.

    Or maybe you're an "illegal", that somehow managed to get by one or all our always watching, always present, and of coarse always paid for by us gov agencies, and in that case never mind.
