    my ass.

    My wife's family lives in Puerto Rico. Do you know a way to drive or take the plane there?

    I don't know. I'm not the engineer that designed it for cripes sake. Call your congressman and complain that you can't carry your toothpaste on the plane and demand they make the machines smaller if it really is affecting your life so damn much.

    no...millions depend on the food...sorry.

    and I believe the number killed on 9/11 went into 4 digits...

    Re: More Carry-On Items Banned on Planes

    My father has traveled all over the world for over 30 years and until 9/11 has NEVER checked a bag in his life! Since that time he has had his luggage stolen, lost and misplaced. It is an inconvience.


    There's not a stone in my heart I've left unturned
    Not a piece of my soul that I ain't searched
    The only answer I found for all this hurt
    Is there ain't not answer here on earth

I've waited over 45 minutes for my bags during one flight. And for a less than 3 hour flight, that's an absurd waste of my time. People fly because it's supposed to be FAST AND EASY! Not to mention, I've seen the way bags are treated by the handlers. They are thrown and I've seen several EACH TIME I FLY fall off the conveyer belt onto the ground. I'm sorry if I would prefer to have MY items in MY control while I'm traveling.
    just remember...all this is controlled by the FAA...just think if airports and flights were controlled by private companies...you wouldn't be able to do squat because they would clamp down on everything faster than you could blink to prevent getting sued for even more money than they are allowed to be sued for now.

    val, 30 years ago people barely brought anything onto planes...have you seen the size of some of those bags these days?? nobody checks the sizes or the contents...there are some of them that you could smuggle half a drug store into...it is a little out of hand because somebody might lose their toothpaste or be inconvienced for 30 minutes...get over it.

    un-freaking-real how otherwise rational people support knee-jerk reactions by the government that ban all of society from taking certain actions simply because a small group of people made one unsuccessful attempt to do something illicit once. The government has yet to even establish a credible tootpaste threat but theyv'e already banned it.

    We have freedoms and rights in this society- the right to not be spied on by the government without probable cause and judicial oversight for one- and we shouldn't let the terrorists take that away.

    Why don't we treat the CAUSES of terrorism instead of the SYMPTOMS- poverty, fundamentalism, oppression and alienation? Oh, wait- that's long-term and would take cooperation, insight and leadership. Let's just ban toothpaste instead.

    Companies that sell large amounts of fertilizer verify that they are selling it to farmers and/or companies that have a legit reson to purchase it. The gov't has asked them to do this. How do you think those guys were busted a few months ago? They were suspicious and reported by the company that sold them the fertilizer.

    We don't even have the luxury of locking our bags when we do send them off to be checked. Nothing is private anymore. I had one of my checked bags opened and gone through during one of my trips. Crap was unfolded and just thrown back into my bag without any care or concern. I would prefer to keep other people out of my personal items. ****ING SUE ME!

    it's a luxury for an American to live in the USA?

    I don't know if there is a boat, and if it is it lives in Florida, which means it would take 2-3 days of driving and another 1-2 days on a boat to get there. Being that we have JOBS, we don't have that much time to spend getting back and forth.

    So, for us, flying is only a luxury if you consider being able to see your family a luxury.

    pfft...if I owned the airlines, the airport and it was a private company and I was responsible for all those lives you have no clue the precautions I would be taking or the rules that I would enforce in order for you to travel.

    flying, like driving, is a priviledge...not a right.

    I don't bitch about it, LA. I just choose after that day to never check bags again. And I haven't. But now because of the latest parinoia apparently I am not allowed to carry my bags onto a plane because my $8 conditioner may blow up the plane. Or the water I'm drinking might blow up the plane.

    Sorry Op, but I think you are incredibly selfish. You're willing to risk the lives of untold people because you think you have a constitutional right to carry toothpaste on board an airplane, bonafide threats be damned.

    Like you said in your other post....the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Brush your teeth before you get to the airport.

    she is a citizen because she chose to come here for school and for some reason she married you which made her a citizen Im not up on how Puerto Rico fits in as far as being an American citizen, but in this country living where you want, working where you want and even going to school is a luxury that our freedom provides for us
