All of what you said is true, however, this just hit the spot....right on!!!!CoffeeMate said:"Upon buying your ticket, you gave up lot of your rights."
Once again we have this "creeping" phenomenon. "Interstate commerce" and "societal interest" gave rise to regulation of commercial airlines. That became heavy and intrusive regulation. Once it was established that airline people were able to be arbitrarily ordered around, somehow that turned into anyone using the airport could be arbitrarily ordered around to the point where even the sanctity of one's person was somehow forfeit.
We're not just forgetting what it is to be Americans, we're also to the point where we've forgotten what it means to be human beings.
