Problem solved (1)

Stop giving the airlines money and refuse to kowtow to ridiculous security theater. This situation with the patriot act and OMG TARISTS! everywhere won't go away until people stop supporting it. I think a national "laff yer socks off" day to all the officials whenever they say the word "terrorism" would be a nice start.

Security theater is very a profitable business in its own right. It's like who has more clout, the defense industry, or Hollywood? And the taxpayers are more than happy to keep shoveling money into their mouths. Or they're easily scared into it.
