You knew what he meant.

You're a real fucktard sometimes.
I wasn't quibbling over the date, just the phrasing. I don't show support for awful things. I show support for the people who endured the awful things.

I forget who said it, but I remember a comment shortly after 9/11 that the best way to defeat the terrorists is not to change one fucking thing that we do. The purpose of terrorists is to change our way of life, a way of life that they detest- so the best way to show them we aren't afraid is to say 'Screw you, We are Americans, and we will carry on business as usual!'

Guess, we sort of failed at showing them that, at least it feels that way whenever I fly.

I don't buy into the airline security argument. Did the attack frighten you so much that you changed your ways and don't fly? Not me personally. Do I mind going through security so my airplane doesn't blow up? Nope.

If you take into account the number of flights per year vs the total number of highjackings pre-9/11 you will find that you are much more likely to die in a plane crash due to pilot error or mechanical malfunction than you are from a hijacker taking over and purposely crashing a plane.

Reality check- TSA has not been cost effective.

BTW, I travel a LOT. The past few years it has become increasingly expensive in both money and time to take a plane. Most of the flights I book are last minute, and it has increased from an average of $300-$500 to $1000-$1500 for a last minute booking.

Now, if I can drive there in about 12 hours or less, I drive since there is no real time savings.
