    Well that was proven ever since that person shot up TBIT at LAX a while back. Then again California gun laws are the reason tge body count was so high anywhere else that kook would have been Swiss cheese PDQ.

    California's gun laws are so screwed up that the police once had to borrow a quality weapon from a gun store to take out a psycho in body armor.

    (Or maybe that is the incident are are referring to as TBIT? But I don't recall it being at LAX.)

    Ok, I missed most of that story. I was on the road in Norway, one week into a five week road trip & reading mostly norsk. At that point in the trip (your norsk gets rusty after 40 years of non use) it was taking forever with a dictionary to read anything. Wasn't there also a possible terrorist incident w/ a twin-engine plane at a CA airport at the same time?

    The psycho in body armor was a different incident.

    From your boss's boss:

    Didn't Kippy say that the liquids restrictions would be lifted by 2009?

    IIRC that was 2 bank robbers who both out gunned and out armored the police at least initially. The police did eventually get a weapon from a gun store owner and that is when the tide turned.

    I know the Europeans have been ridiculing the liquids ban for ages. I thought they wanted to get rid of it long ago, but didn't because the Americans pressured them, and because they didn't want to create confusion and have their citizens lose their liquids while flying through the U.S.

    LOL. Thought the Japanese had a bottle inspection system that works. Too bad DHS/TSA is a not invented here group.

    You throw that at me as if I have something to do with forming policy. I kind of feel sorry for you. I can't imagine what it's like to be so blinded by anger.

    Nah, you're "just following orders."

    No, I posted that because you didn't seem to be familiar with Nappy's recent statement on the screening of liquids. It's you who respond with your inherent anger.

    Which part of my statement does that refer to?

    You missed my point. I was talking about an airport official making a statement about weapons and grenades being found at the checkpoint in the present time as if we are under siege by waves of terrorists.

    We are not. Or did I miss the TSA press releases about terrorists being caught at the checkpoint?

    The fact is these kinds of things have been found at airport checkpoints for decades, although the TSA likes to pretend otherwise.

    It's even worse now that AGITPROP is working overtime to counteir their bad press and turn public opinion in favor of TSA.
