Safety Pin Removed from babys diaper at Airport Securitygreenspun.com : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread
Had you going, didn't I. Well I guess if the safety pin is over a certain size then they would object, wouldn't they. "Only pampers or huggys allowed on the flight maam, we'll have to confiscate that safety pin, its over 1" long."
We have imbeciles for government officials.

Paranoia wins. Think of how the terrorists must be laughing at us.

They are turning this country upside down with fear, anxiety, and just plain nuttiness. This is the most idiotic precaution I've heard of yet.

If they can create fear like this just on air travel, think of what they can do on everything else like bridges, hi-rise towers, pipelines, nuclear facilities. They can bring this country to a virtual hault.

And, through all of this Wall Street just keeps sailing along. Anthrax? What's that? Terrorists? Who are they? Where's Polly Anna when we need her?

It's only a matter of time before they start confiscating false teeth if they are too pointy!
Imagine, sorry sir, you can't fly unless you have your incisors grinded down. Vampires will have to fly the old fashion way, I guess.
How about long nails?????
BTW, unless airport security staff is screened better all the the security is useless. All a group would have to do is place someone in one of these positions, and they could smuggle weapons in.
