    Time to occupy, at every major airport? TSA is mentioned as a much better target than the industry in general in comments:
    Criminality and the Inside Job of airport "security": Luggage/holds used for movement of their contraband. Our possessions, their booty. Our bodies, not safe. Our constitution, in tatters. We are forced to pay tariffs for the insult or seek other means of travel. And we are taxed to pay for the criminality and its cost at every level.

    Clearly worthy of occupation en masse by a fed-up public.

    Unfortunately too true. Many of the people who actually use airports tend to try to avoid conflict and go along, which only fosters more abuse.

    I agree with his post -- we'll get change when we leave the game.

    If everyone stopped flying for a week the body scanners and sexual assaults would stop.
