The federal government put an EXTRA tax on arline tickets for security equipment(there was one already that was being used for everything else)
This "high tech" equipment seems to be one more piece of "eyewash" that doesn't work.
This expensive machinery and wands cannot detect the weapons we were told it was purchased for ???? First it didn't work on shoes with metal shanks, then jackets were taken off, allegedly because people left items in the pockets, now even bulky sweaters are to be taken off and since THE WANDS
EVIDENTLY DO NOT WORK, we must be "hand searched" better known as gropped....We are finger printing European tourists that are coming hear to spend their euros, since the dollar is down 52% in 3 years..Lets harrase them
to show we are doing something ...BUT THE MEXICAN BORDER HAS MORE HOLES THAN SWISS CHEESE AND NOTHING IS DONE TO STOP PEOPLE FROM WALKING INTO THE COUNTRY. BUT THAT IS NOT A PROBLEM ?????

The feds need to stop the eyewash and actually protect the US borders. The media seems to ignore this and not ask why.
