Security at air ports ,

we should have visual Profiling , was it a chinees person that blew up 9-11

was it a Canadian no, was it a grandmother and grand father taking their kids to

Disney world, No

All the terrorists are from Moslem countries, so just run them through the scanning

Machine,

last week on my trip to LA from Calgary we waited 3 hours for these TSA people

to feel every one up and down even guys patting little girls going to Disney world

every one on that flight missed there connections , did the ever find any thing No,

the ridicules thing is the are making every one take off their shoes what an unsanitary

thing , Have the ever found any thing in Millions of people no ,

3 Days ago I went to Denver from Calgary

The would not let me take my briefcase with all my very important documents with me

I had to check my Briefcase , can you imagine how I felt, as a lot of air line baggage

is lost or stolen , and is tossed around by baggage handlers , thrown into a wagon then

thrown out onto a conveyer into a plane then at the other end it is in reverse,

Now listen to this if I had of had a lap top in it I could of taken it on board with me,

when I was ready to get on board there was a gentleman sittings beside me in the waiting

area, who had a bigger suitcase with a lap top and his books and papers, he also had a

small bag about 9 inches square so I asked him what was in that other Bag , I could not

believe what he told me , his Kids intendo games,

now I think this is the best thing I have ever heard , as there was a Pilot with Air Canada siting on the other side waiting to get on the same flight and heard us talking he laughed and said this is the most reticules bunch of people , as he said the took his nail clippers away from him,

He told the guy what is the worst these nail clippers or the Axe behind my seat in the cockpit,

My suggestions is Profile people, and if you have a Nexus card have a scanner for your bag and

just walk on By, The don't need to make people take off there shoes,

so Wake up Obama and homeland security , and quit costing us billions of dollars for your

foolishness Please Pass this on to everyone you Know and lets get our flying costs down

we don't need to have to pay 50 Dollars to have some Moslem check my Bag it already went

through the scanner by its self,

send this to all your friends and hopefully to the Government ,

Submitting....
