If I remember correctly, before the US blindly took orders from Israel and started bombing one Muslim country after another, this level of security was unnecessary.

To the best of my knowledge, no "terrorist" ; ; has ever put a dozen bullets into an unarmed black man and later claimed that it was justified because he "feared for his life!"

  


That's because terrorist generally use suicide bombs. They don't generally "fear for their lives."

Dark Vader: their government reflects exactly Americans in real life. They are paranoid beyond belief, always suspecting everyone of something. Why their media always brainwashes them into paranoia - I am not sure, perhaps the 1% don't like anyone else who has any reasonable amount of money compared to other broke nations enjoying their life.

  


Master....
It's the elite 1% that are paranoid. They hide behind their goon squads, the Secret Service.

This is Tyranny by definition folks. When will Americans wake up? We're all playing Russian Roulette right now by passively letting these psychopaths control our country.

  


Th ey'll wake up whenever they stop getting comfortable. You have to understand that Americans were conditioned from the cradle not to resist authority. In school if you resist authority they give you a pill because you have ADD, and among peer groups you are ostrasized for non-conformance. It took me over 20 years to break out of the programming -it's not easy.

The way I usually look at it is that, whereas American society has a representative form of government, if there is corruption in that government it is merely reflective of corruption within the society at large.

Just another indication of lack of accountability for abuse. It is a government strategy to prevent unification of the people against evil.

America is a mess because most Americans are a mess. It is a brainwashed population. A judgmental arrogant people. Waste and mismanagement. There are awake people, but not nearly enough.

To say the population was thrown under the bus is not an accurate statement. Large swaths of the population are convinced to jump under the bus and go gleefully. Americans are not very bright. Maybe it's just humans.

It's a land of thieves. With all those resources to waste, it brings out the worst in people. Stolen continent, wealth built on backs of slaves, and it has not changed much. Scams built on scams. Epidemic of decay.

Flash cards - pretty dangerous stuff. I can see why they might be alarmed. What a load of twaddle. I would let him carry a billboard with the word "Bomb" onto the plane if he could carry it within his carry on luggage, provided he left him actual bomb home.

A paranoid nation does these types of things...if the people accept this, then they get what they deserve...

  


Thanks to G Bush and the world trade center episode...

It is simply not reasonable to assume Arabic-English flashcards with words such as 'bomb,' 'to kill,'......... is still only a flashcard and not a bomb....

Idk how truth the polls are on any news channel but its true that people are beginning to accept this type of behavoir as normal. buying off judges and politicians in the process to create a fake paranoia will lead to real paranoia. The FBI and powers that be are using the TSA as a launching point for these mind games.
