    Should anybody have to go through such a ridiculous screening process. Whats to stop them from going into our shopping malls or setting up checkpoints we have to pass through everyday just so that we can go to work? If this is allowed to continue we would be powerless to stop their expansion out of the airports

    For the past year TSA has insisted that everyone must be subjected to the same security procedures, whether a child, elderly grandmother or US Senator.

    Now they are letting the privileged buy their way out of the program. TSA is saying that wealthy people are "more equal" than the rest of us. This smacks of racism and government extortion.

    If you are âinvitedâ you must pay a fee and give them your financial information even though TSA has lost the personal information of their employees and accidentally published their secret procedures. For this you MIGHT get expedited screening but could be selected for further screening anyway. What a bargain.

    If someone can buy their way out of screening then this is all security theater that is gratuitously harassing passengers. Congress must demand that TSA adopt sensible and respectful procedures for everyone, not just the wealthy.

    Just heard someone who read this article say (and who may watch too many movies) but who still has a valid point:

    "Whats to keep someone on the per-approved list from being targeted by any kind of terrorist (large group or small, foreign or domestic)and having a family member kidnapped to induce the per-approved flyer to carry or smuggle bomb materials?"

    Oh, good! Maybe if we make enough changes to the TSA, we can have a productive government program.

    or, I could just not vote Republican.
