I couldn't agree more.

I have no worries about flying, but the thought of having to deal with all the airport bullshit, the hours of standing in lines, the stupid questions by every little jobsworth, flying long-haul with no hand baggage, the general paranoia-all that fills me wiith dread.

Sorry about your weekend.May as well clean your car instead-he he.

Well this is going to affect all flights, international and domestic.
I’m scheduled to fly back to Iowa tomorrow from Philadelphia, Pa
At 6a.m.
I understand it’s big cluster fuck there now, sounds like a 3hr wait
and very limited carry on.
Taking my shoes off is the least of the pain now, thanks to these turds.

I just watched Shrub's statement.What a fucker! Instead of thanking the British government for cooperating with the Feds and foiling this plot, he and Bliar should be APOLOGISING to all of us for putting us in danger in the first place.
If we didn't invade soveregn nations and kill their people for political motives, we would not all have targets on our backs.
